"Lebanese resistance" you say?
In an interview published today in As-Safir, Hassan Nasrallah admitted to giving "Palestinians" (read militant factions, and not NGOs or the Red Crescent) "financial, political and media support."
Ya Libnan has a good summary of the Safir interview, in which Nasrallah also admitted to smuggling weapons to militants through Jordan until December 2001, when Jordanian authorities arrested three of Hizbullah's members transporting Katyushas from Syria to the West Bank.
"After the Jordan incident and arrest of a number of our brothers, the Palestinians told us, 'This is costing you politically and is a burden for the fighters. Send us the money and we will take care of it ourselves,"' Nasrallah said, adding that the Palestinian militants got their weapons from "the mafia and Israeli officers."
Some of you may remember how Rafik Hariri stepped in at the time and personally asked King Abdallah to release the militants. We all know how Hizbullah paid Hariri back after that incident, and after Syria murdered him.
This "confession", which is old news to many, came as Jordan discovered more Hamas weapons hidden in a village north of the kingdom. These weapons, according to Jordanian authorities, were supplied by Syria, and were intended for use in attacks against Jordanian officials.
I suppose Hamas found their mafia: the Syrian regime.
As for Hizbullah, they're the proud sugar daddy of the region's militants. They give you weapons if you like, or money to buy some if you prefer. No receipts required. It's not their money anyway. Part of it comes from Iran, and the other part from Lebanese citizens donating their money every Friday to their unarmed collectors on Beirut streets. Add to that the salaries their deputies collect from the Lebanese taxpayers.
What's next? Hizbullah sending Zarqawi "help" to blow up Shia traitors?
