Hizbullah: Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Hizbullah Will Wipe Out Israel Following U.S. Withdrawal from Iraq

(MEMRI) Hizbullah MP Brig.-Gen. (ret.) Walid Sakariya told the London-based Arab TV station ANB on August 7: "Iran is the country most hostile to Israel, but Iraq serves as a buffer between Iran and the Palestine front....Iran supports the forces of confrontation: Hamas, Hizbullah, and Syria." "If, following the U.S. withdrawal, Iraq becomes a bridge linking Iran to Syria, the Iranian forces could cross Iraq and arrive in Syria, in order to participate in a direct war on the Golan front. In that case, Israel would not be fighting Hizbullah alone. It would be fighting Hizbullah, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. This is the so-called 'Shiite Crescent' that they fear." "You will have the strategic superiority and a force large enough to pulverize Israel, even if this war costs you hundreds of thousands of martyrs - not just 1,000 or 2,000. You will enter this war with a population mass exceeding 100 million....Hizbullah, Syria, Iraq, and Iran will constitute a force that is militarily superior to Israel and will destroy it."
