Debbie Schlussel: Hezbullah 'fighters' speak Farsi

Debbie Schlussel is reporting that some Hezbullah 'fighters' who were captured in Lebanon over the past couple of days are Farsi-speaking Iranians.
My exclusive Lebanese Intelligence sources tell me that a number of Hezbollah terrorist fighters have been caught, over the weekend, and they cannot speak Arabic, only Farsi. They are Iranian and have identified themselves or been identified by third parties as members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. This is the same group that, under Khomeini, took over the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and kept U.S. civilians hostage for over 444 days in 1979-81, in Iran.

As I reported, last week, Druze leader Walid Jumblatt (previously a Syria supporter) called for an end to flights to Lebanon from Iran. He claimed that these flights were likely being transport Iranian fighters and their weapons into Lebanon for a big conflagration and takeover.
Read the whole thing.

I'm actually a bit surprised at this. While it was clear all along that Iran was supplying weapons and training to Hezbullah, I'm surprised that they have to provide personnel. I wonder how many Farsi-speaking Hamas terrorists Israel will arrest if it invades Gaza. That could be interesting.

Carl - if you call the history of the first Lebanon War back in the 1980s, Iran sent an advance Revolutionary Guards unit to Lebanon to found and build up Hezbollah. The group is little more than a para-military front for Iranian interests, which do not necessarily coincide with those of Lebanon's. In fact, the current crisis was triggered by the extent of Iranian involvement in Hezbollah. Its too powerful for a very weak Lebanese government to take it on and for all intents and purposes Lebanon is now a de facto Iranian satellite in the Levant.
