Hezbollah claims swaths of north Israel

From Haaretz 04/11/2008 by Yoav Stern:

A senior Hezbollah official on Monday said the Lebanese militant organization believes that large swaths of northern Israel belong to Lebanon, far beyond the line Israel pulled back to in 2000. "The Zionist terror organizations moved the border from that of 1920 to that of 1923, and Lebanon lost seven villages and twenty farms...." said Nawaf Musawi, head of international relations for Hezbollah.

In referring to the Blue Line, Musawi ...branded Blue Line, which runs very close to the 1949 Israel-Lebanon border known as the Green Line, as merely a "withdrawal line."

The official's comments mean that Hezbollah has territorial demands beyond the disputed Shaba Farms in the Golan Heights and the divided northern village of Ghajar. While various Lebanese Shi'ite figures have made these demands in the past, Hezbollah has abstained from doing so in recent years.

Good luck Israel. I've loved you as family for many years but cannot deal with your eternal support for the liberal left in the USA. You helped elect a man who is a mix of pro-islam and pro-white america hating christianity. Notice I left out pro-Israel? Yeah, I noticed it to.
Plant those Gharqad trees quick!
