Hibullah's deputy chief said Monday that his group does not want a dialogue with Washington until it changes its Mideast policy, which he said is totally biased toward Israel.

Sheik Naim Kassem was responding to Ryan Crocker, ex-US ambassador in Iraq, who told Congress this month the United States should break with long-standing policy and start talking to the Iranian-backed group.



Crocker told a Senate hearing that the US stands to gain more than it would lose by negotiating with Hizbullah, which the US classifies as a terrorist organization.

Kassem added in an interview Monday that he does not expect a war with Israel, but the group is preparing for it "as if it is happening tomorrow."
