Nasrallah tells UN to buzz off

Hezbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah has dismissed the concerns of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon regarding Hezbullah's arms caches in southern Lebanon.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah shot back at UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Saturday, saying that Hezbollah will not give up its weapons and that the top UN official's concern over its armament "pleases" him.

During a visit to the Lebanese capital over the weekend, Ban said he was "deeply concerned about the military capacity of Hezbollah and ... the lack of progress in disarmament." Nasrallah responded a day later, "We want you (the UN), the US and Israel to be concerned."

“Our concern is that our people are comforted that there is a resistance in Lebanon and we will not allow a new occupation or another violation,” Nasrallah said in a video message to a Shi'ite religious event.

The Hezbollah leader added that he will not disarm or slow the group's armament, saying that path is the "only guarantee" to safeguarding Lebanon. "We confirm that our choice is the path of resistance and the arms of the resistance," he added.

"The resistance," Nasrallah boasted, "is here to stay. Its power and its readiness will continue to grow."

Ban Ki-moon demanded on Friday the disarmament of the anti-Israel movement, which had said his visit to Lebanon was not welcome.
Nasrallah is going to get away with this? Who will stop him? Only one party can. And they won't - at least not on the UN's say-so.

Let's go to the videotape.
