Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah the leader of Hezbollah commented on PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s recent victory in the Israeli elections. He said that it shows how close the relationship between Israel and the United States really is.
“Netanyahu will likely form a new right-wing Zionist government and we are before a new stage of unprecedented cooperation between America and Israel represented in Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump,” he said.
Arrogantly the terrorist leader said “if we wanted to influence them, we could’ve done this,”
Nasrallah also slammed Trump’s decision to officiously put the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on its terror list by calling it stupid.
“Condemnation will suffice for now, but this does not mean we don’t have stronger cards to play. This is not a permanent policy,” the terrorist leader said.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps was formed after the triumph of the Islamic Revolution of 1979 to protect the theocratic regime led by the ayatollahs. It is the most powerful military organization in Iran, even more than the Iranian armed forces.
Until this past Monday the United States has imposed sanctions on dozens of entities and individuals affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, but never directly classified the organization as a terror group.
