Nasrallah Threatens to Kill Thousands of Israelis
Says hitting Haifa ammonia plant would create 'nuclear bomb' effect
IDF Chief of Staff: Watch it, Hassan
Just imagine for a second if an Israeli prime minister threatened to kill thousands of Lebanese.
It would be front page on the New York Times, the United Nations would call a Security Council meeting, the entire world would be up in arms.
But when the Hezbollah leader does it, a stony silence.
On the one hand, it might speak to people's poor opinion of him: no one expects anything but a racist diatribe against Jews from the terror leader. On the other, the non-reaction may just indicate acceptance, acquiescence.
Whatever the case, the man who hides in a hole for fear of Israeli jets said Tuesday that in the next Hezbollah-Israel war his terror group would target Haifa's ammonia plants, creating a nuclear bomb effect and killing thousands of Israelis.
In the good news department, Nasrallah is reportedly dying of cancer.
IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot responded to Nasrallah's racist rant in calm tones, saying the IDF has "effective deterrance" against Hezbollah.
Top IDF commanders have long replied to Hezbollah threats by noting the extent to which a full-scale conflict would destroy Lebanon's infrastructure. They have even hinted that Israel's goal in such a war would be to destroy the terrorist group entirely.
