Tony Badran, Research Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains how the backing of Iran has served to legitimize Hezbollah on the world stage, making the group all the more dangerous.

This video is very leaning towards one side from a hostility point of view being Israel living in a surrounding of fear. One cannot blame Israel since they live in a hostility region. But who created Hezbollah? It was Israel's occupation of Beirut that created this opposition force since the Lebanese people did not want to be occupied by a foreign force. Also Hezbollah is stronger than the Lebanese Armed Forces. The Lebanese people prefer Hezbollah since they successfully defended Lebanon from Israel's aggression due to Israel's fear. They also defeated Israel in July 2006's war. This is all talking from a NEUTRAL point of view.

For a bomber, Nasrallah was most considerate: daily bombings at 11 AM and 3 PM on the dot were so accurate your could - and I once did - set your watch by them. The hours were well-chosen also: just when one is wanting a break from work. A run to the bomb shelter may not be quite the same as a coffee break, but it did provide a change.
