Hizbullah is spitting in the face of the international community by refusing to disarm, an Israeli official said Friday, after Hizbullah staged a massive rally claiming victory in its 34-day war with Israel. The key speaker at the Beirut rally was Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah, who made his first public appearance since the start of the war July 12. Israeli leaders have refused to say whether Nasrallah remains a target for assassination. Nasrallah told the crowd that Hizbullah would never surrender its weapons. "Nasrallah is challenging not only the government of Lebanon, but the entire international community," said foreign ministry spokesman Mark Regev. "The international community can't afford to have this Iranian-funded extremist spit in the face of the organized community of nations." Nasrallah also said Hizbullah possesses more than 20,000 rockets, even after firing nearly 4,000 rockets at Israel during the fighting. Regev noted that according to the UN resolution that brought about the cease-fire Hizbullah "shouldn't have any rockets."
