Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah: Dead Syrian Leaders Are Heroes

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Iranian-sponsored terror group Hezbollah, seems to be betting on the wrong horse, eulogizing the Syrian defense minister and his deputy, Bashar al-Assad's brother-in-law:

When Gaza had nothing to eat Syria sent missiles and food. Rajha and Shawkat (symbolize) the Syria which helped the resistance in Palestine. While other Arab regimes blocked (the transfer) of food and donations to Gaza, it was Syria that sent food and weapons to Gaza and took a chance. This is the Syria of Bashar Assad, this is the Syria of the shahid leaders. We denounce this blow which only serves the interests of the enemy."
