Regardless of what one may think of Nasrallah, he is not a spinmeister or a teller of tales. Israel has people on the government staff whose primary job is to twist the truth into something more "palatable". This has gone on for so long that most of Israels supporters do not even question it anymore. They react to any statement from a government spokesman as if it were the exact truth, no questions asked. It is refreshing to see a leader that does not need a handler or a platoon of staffies in order to make a speech. If Nasrallah says there will be a deal, then there will be a deal, and if he is smiling, it is not because he was ordered to smile. This is why Israels supporters hate him so much.
