'Israel's war on Lebanon wanted to create new Mideast'

“The Israeli military was simply a tool in the 2006 war against Lebanon as the military campaign had been orchestrated by the United States.

Hawzah News Agency - (Beirut - Lebanon) - The secretary general of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah says the Israeli military’s 33-day war on Lebanon in the summer of 2006 was aimed at creation of a new Middle East region, where the Tel Aviv regime would have performed the leading role.

“The Israeli military was simply a tool in the 2006 war against Lebanon, as the military campaign had been orchestrated by the United States. Among the objectives of the war were putting an end to the presence of (Hezbollah) resistance (movement) in Lebanon, toppling the Syrian government, and defeating Iran in the region,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stated in a televised speech broadcast live from the southern Lebanese town of Bint Jbeil on Friday evening.

He added that American officials, by launching the 33-day war on Lebanon, had wished to form a new Middle East, where the Israeli regime would have been in the saddle, controlling everything.

"In that war, John Bolton, then the US ambassador to the UN Security Council, told an Arab official: 'The war will stop only if Hezbollah is crushed or it surrenders.'"

"But Bolton later told the same Arab official: 'We have to stop the war now.'"

“The Arab official asked him: Did you crush Hezbollah? He said no. The Arab official asked: Did Hezbollah surrender? He said no. the Arab official said: So why did you stop the war?! Bolton said: Israel would face a catastrophe if the war continues,” the Hezbollah chief said.

“American and Israeli officials failed to attain any of their goals (in the 33-day war),” Nasrallah said, describing Hezbollah as a deterrent force against US and Israeli acts of aggression in the region.

The Hezbollah chief noted that Lebanon could emerge victorious in the war because it held on to the golden equation of people, army and the anti-Israel resistance front.
