Nasrallah Takes Tunnel to Syria to Meet With Ahmadinejad
Maybe this tunnel has something to do with how Hezbollah was able to rearm itself so quickly after last year’s war with Israel? Ya think?

The Jerusalem Post reported:
It’s going to be a “hot” summer in the Middle East, said Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad following a surprise meeting with Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah in Damascus on Thursday evening, Channel 10 reported.
Nasrallah allegedly entered Syria via an underground tunnel, the television channel said.
“We hope that the hot weather of this summer will coincide with similar victories for the region’s peoples, and with consequent defeat for the region’s enemies,” Ahmadinejad added, in an apparent reference to Israel.
During his one-day trip to Damascus, Ahmadinejad held talks with counterpart Bashar Assad which focused on the Iraq situation, Palestinian territories and Lebanon, where both Teheran and Damascus wield influence.
“The enemies of the region should abandon plans to attack the interests of this region, or they would be burned by the wrath of the region’s peoples,” the hardline Iranian leader said at a joint press conference with Assad.

Hat Tip American Freedom
Ahmadinejad again threatened the US and Israel during his joint press conference with Assad, via –EUXTV:
“The enemies of the region should abandon plans to attack the interests of this region, or they would be burned by the wrath of the region’s peoples.”
** The meetings took place in Damascus as a report released in Lebanon today linked the Assad family to the Al-Qaeda offshoot group Fatah al-Islam in Lebanon.
It looks like that visit by Nancy Pelosi earlier in the year did wonders!
