Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a message to Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, described the group's guerrilla battle against Israel a "victory" for Islam. "Your unprecedented holy war and steadfastness are beyond the limits of my description. It's a divine victory. It is a victory of Islam," Khameneni said in the message, read by an announcer on Hizbullah's Al-Manar television. Hizbullah is heavily backed by Iran's Shi'ite theocracy.
