"Its a joy for me to see so many young people that have picked up that flag - I see in front of me waving, a flag of the resistance movement in Lebanon - Hizbullah, led by Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah - Nasrallah Habib Allah - who showed that it is possible to defeat this terrorist enemy if you have the courage to stand up and confront them!"
