Iran priming Hezbollah for war with U.S., Israel?

WorldNetDaily is reporting today that Iran is 'priming' Hezbullah to attack Israel in the event that Iran's nuclear facilities are attacked.
Iran is attempting to draw Lebanon into a conflict with the U.S. and Israel and is priming the Hezbollah militia to assault the Jewish state in the event of an attack against Iran's nuclear facilities, Lebanon's Druze leader Walid Jumblatt said in an interview.
