Hezbollah Official Strategizes Islamist Destruction of Israel After U.S. Leaves Iraq

"Iran is the country most hostile to Israel..."

Radical Islamists may be applauding once the United States military forces finally retreat from the battlefield in Iraq.

On Sunday, MP Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Walid Sakariya, a senior Hezbollah official, made some startling televised statements about plans to destroy Israel. According to a transcript provided by IMRA, he said:

"Iran is the country most hostile to Israel, but Iraq serves as a buffer between Iran and the Palestine front – from the days of Saddam Hussein and until the U.S. military presence in Iraq. Iran supports the forces of confrontation: Hamas, Hizbullah, and Syria.

If, following the U.S. withdrawal, Iraq becomes a bridge linking Iran to Syria, the Iranian forces could cross Iraq and arrive in Syria, in order to participate in a direct war on the Golan front.

In that case, Israel would not be fighting Hizbullah alone. It would be fighting Hizbullah, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. This is the so-called 'Shiite Crescent' that they fear..."

Of course, his appearance includes much more worth viewing. Below, watch the interview, complete with translated subtitles:
