    Nasrallah was the first Arab leader not to use rhetoric but use PRECISE and realistic language, and this is why the Arab audience actually stopped to listen. He never promised to "Obliterate Israel" or to destroy the IDF, he simply said he would put up a defensive fight Israel will never forget, and I think he succeeded. I am against religious movements like Hizbollah and Hamas, however, I can tell you these groups, Hizbollah in particular, have shifted somewhat the balance of power in the region for the first time. Hizbollah in defending Lebanon has accomplished what all other Arab regimes failed to do in the past few decades. Wishing Hizbollah or Hamas to vanish is a waste of time because they represent a huge popular base rejecting Israeli expansionism, hegemony and apartheid. They are an ideology more than an armed group. I suggest Israel look at itself in the mirror and address the ROOT cause of the problem before indulging in useless wishful thinking. The solution in diffusing religious fanaticism on both sides is the return to justice and human rights for all, starting with Palestinian right to self-determination and freedom. If Israel can't offer this then the One State Solution is the ONLY viable option, although painful. Peace.
