Hezbollah terrorist leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warns “Christian Zionists” are gaining strength in the United States and are having a powerful impact on U.S. foreign policy.

Speaking at a graduation ceremony in Lebanon, Nasrallah charged oil companies and weapons manufacturers have financed these “Christian Zionists,” according to a report in Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper.

“Their aim is to redraw the world’s political map,” he said. “It is said that several U.S. presidents are affiliated with the Christian Zionists.”

Nasrallah said the aim of the Christian Zionists in the U.S. is to return the Jews to Israel and rebuild their temple over the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

However, Nasrallah added, “if they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.”

“Although the United States is powerful, it has its weaknesses,” he said.

Nasrallah said he is not threatened by a country that calls itself “great.”

“The U.S. empire, which is slithering over our region, is incapable of arresting a single sniper in its capital,” he said sarcastically, referring to the unsolved rash of killings in the Washington, D.C., area.

He said that during his recent trip to the United States, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon claimed that Hezbollah had missiles with a range of 300 kilometers.

“Instead of putting pressure on us, this scared the (Israeli) people, who feared that we would be able to hit them anywhere … and not only in northern Israel,” Nasrallah said.

A major potential military clash is building between Israel and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, controlled by the terrorist organization, which gets its support from Syria and Iran. The latest conflict is over water rights.

Nasrallah said the fact that Israel has not yet attacked the Wazzani water pumps is because of the Jewish state’s fear of the “Islamic resistance’s retaliation.”

Nasrallah said that the suicide attack in Israel last Monday “was a clear statement that this nation will continue its resistance.”
