"We overcame [Hizbullah] in the past and we will overcome them in the future too," President Shimon Peres said Tuesday during a ceremony in Tel Hai. "Hizbullah is sowing the seeds of evil on the other side of these hills," said the president. "Its leaders neither intend to build nor plant, rather to destroy and demolish. They won't change our stance or block our progress." The ceremony was commemorating 88 years since the fall of Joseph Trumpeldor and other seven members of the group as well as the establishment of the Jewish settlement in the area.
