Iran: Hizballah are Heroes

Iran's former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani praised Hizballah for the "great job" they are doing lobbing their anti-personnel projectile laden Iranian-made rockets and missiles into Israeli cities. Quotes abound from Mr. Rafsanjani in the Khaleej Times, but none more eye-catching than the following condemnation of Israel's counter-attack on Hizballah:

“Destroying a country is not proportionate to capturing two hostages.”

Interesting sound bite coming from a government that prefers to see Israel "wiped off the map." What might be proportionate to wiping Israel off the map, one wonders?

Come now, Mr. President. You can't have it both ways.
