Lebanese Parliament Speaker: Hizbolla Resistance is our pride

This statement, and others like it, must be remembered when the next war comes, and Lebanese officials insist that they have no control over Hezbollah or responsibility for it.
Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri on Thursday told the President of the European Parliament Hans-Gert Pottering Hizbullah's resistance is "our pride."
Berri made the remark in an address at a lunch banquet in honor of the visiting European chief legislator.
Berri expressed gratitude for the EU's support during the 2006 war between Hizbullah and Israel, stating that in the 34-day confrontation "we established Israel's failure in achieving any goal by force."
"Two years after the war came to a halt, Israel persists with violating international resolutions," Berri said.
Lebanon, the speaker told his EU guest, honors its commitments in line with UNSCR 1701.
"Resistance in Lebanon and Palestine is a reaction to the occupation," Berri stressed.
