    Jon called for Nasrallah's assassination when he said "Next Nasrallah speaks in public, take him out!!! " with "an IDF missile" In 1992 the IDF killed the old leader of Hezb. Seyyed Abbas al-Musawi. Since then Hezb. has only gotten stronger. First causing Israel to re-think their occupation of Lebanon and withdraw in 2000. Second Hezb. created a southern defense zone that made the Israeli invasion much more difficult than anyone ever expected. Now Hezb. is in a position to control all of Lebanon. Killing Nasrallah in a public setting would serve only to strengthen Hezbollah's position. After the funeral of Hassan and all of the innocent civilians killed by the IDF missile, Hezb. will have the kind of public support they need to break the political stalemate. Israel would hand Hezb. control of Lebanon on a silver platter if Hassan were to die. Israel should be hoping Hassan a long healthy life until control over the Lebanese Gov't is resolved.
