A top Hezbollah official said Iran's nuclear program is "meant to create a balance of terror with Israel" and "finish off the Zionist enterprise."
Appearing on the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar Lebanese television station this week, Retired general and current Hezbollah MP Walid Sakariya said a nuclear Iran would serve both Syria and Iran's needs -- namely, the end of the Jewish state.
"My analysis is the following -- if Iran becomes a nuclear state, the entire equation in the Middle East will change," Sakariya said in a television clip recorded and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
He continued, "This nuclear weapon is meant to create a balance of terror with Israel, to finish off the Zionist enterprise, and to end all Israeli aggression against the Arab nation."
