Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the "head of Lebanon's Shiite Muslim Hezbollah" group, says that Israel and the US are "the main beneficiaries of the deadly attacks Tuesday in Iraq."

The head of Lebanon's Shiite Muslim Hezbollah said Israel and the United States were the main beneficiaries of the deadly attacks Tuesday in Iraq and pointed to the Al-Qaeda terror network as their author.

"Israel and the United States are the principal beneficiaries of the attack that killed dozens of people in Baghdad and Karbala," Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said at a ceremony in southern Beirut marking the Ashura holy day of mourning.

"The objective is to sow discord among Muslims, between Sunnis and Shiites," a visibly shaken Nasrallah told a crowd of more than 100,000 people.

"Israel, which wants to destroy Iraq, has provided a lot of money and agents and formed sabotage networks in Iraq," he alleged.

"The American administration wants to dominate Iraq and pillage its oil and other resources."

I guess Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah never got the memo.
