Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah’s latest speech had little to do with his usual anti-Israel propaganda. He also barely made a mention of the fact that his longtime ally Ebrahim Raisi was elected as the Iranian president, nor was his speech rife with the usual calls for Arabs worldwide to support Hamas and fight for Jerusalem.
Friday’s address focused on domestic issues in Lebanon – the water and power supplies, petrol rations, and food stamps. Lebanon, you see, is in a freefall and it is threatening to take Hezbollah and Nasrallah down with it.
For the past few years, Lebanon has been plagued with an insurmountable political crisis that has prevented the formation of a government. It was also hit by a dire financial crisis that has left it bankrupt. Banks have shuttered, food has become scarce, hospitals are unable to care for patients, and now the military is struggling to provide its troops with the necessary supplies.The Day after Lebanon Impodes (Op-Ed) Israel Hayom
