Hizbullah chief says during solidarity rally with people of Egypt, Tunisia that "protests will push out regime that has maintained peace with Israel."
BEIRUT Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Monday the unrest in Egypt will transform the Middle East by pushing out a regime that has maintained peace with Israel.
Nasrallah predicted that whatever leadership emerges in Egypt after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will move away from Israel, leaving it more isolated.
"You are fighting the battle of Arab dignity, the dignity of the Arab human being that was humiliated by some of its leaders in the past decades," Nasrallah said during a ceremony to support the Egyptian demonstrators and to protest the 1979 peace treaty between Cairo and Israel.
"We look forward to the day that you bring back to Egypt its leading and historic position in the life of our nation and the region," Nasrallah said referring to the days when Egypt was leading anti-Israeli policies in the 1950s and 1960s.
In his speech, Nasrallah asked where Arabs want to stand "on Israel's side, which wants to protect this regime, or with the revolution that wants to bring it [regime] down."
Last week, senior Hizbullah official Mahmoud Komati said one of the defendants, Lebanese citizen Mohammed Youssef Mansour, better known as Sami Chehab, escaped from his Egyptian jail during the unrest and is in a safe place.
Komati refused to say whether Mansour is in Lebanon.

Hey, Hope and Change, right? Sho’Nuff.
They think they can destroy Israel and the Jews...without destroying themselves.
Israel has and will use nukes if faced with an existential threat that cannot be repulsed by other means.
Dozens of cities throughout the middle east and asia could be left as nothing but a smoldering ruin.
The Islamo-fascist problem would then be solved...but at terrible cost.
These monkeys keep pushing as they've been doing, they'll learn what real humiliation feels like.
Arab dignity? Arab dignity? Nazrallah calls it dignity?
Israel couldn’t do 1/10,000 of the damage to Arab dignity that Arabs do to it themselves. Mutilating young women’s sex organs. Forbidding young women to go to school or work. Stoning or flogging women who are raped, killing them. Beating women who show their faces in public. Killing daughters because they wouldn’t agree at 14 (or even less) years of age to marry a family friend who is 60.
Yeah, Israel has certainly done a lot of damage to Arab dignity..., horse s—t!
And I suppose Israel is responsible for the Arabs who do this clear across the Middle-East too.
Nazrallah must be a real ass-hat.
