Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni said Tuesday that Hizbullah had been weakened by the monthlong fighting in Lebanon and blamed the group for the suffering of the Lebanese people. Livni said Hizbullah was "in a losing process" following the fighting that ended Aug. 14, and that "time will tell who is the winner" of the 34-day conflict. She said Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah's recent statement that he would not have ordered the capture of two Israeli soldiers if he had known it would lead to such a war was a sign of weakness. "This now shows that Hizbullah is more weak," Livni told reporters during a visit to Copenhagen. "Hizbullah has to give some explanation to the Lebanese people. They suffered for nothing."
