The Real Nasrallah

A son of Beiruts slums has become one of the most engaging and dangerous lraders in the muslim world.

These are headlines from NewWeek (8/28/2006)

“Remember this about Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hizbullah: he grew up very poor but very smart, and although he wears the robes of a minor Shiite cleric, he is a world class politician. The US government defines him as a terrorist, but that is only one of his faces. If he survives the war he started in Israel, he will remain what he has become during these weeks of combat: perhaps the most charismatic figure in the muslim world, and very possibly the most dangerous.

His message  is “to regain lost pride…by readiness to sacrifice and readiness to suffer.”
