There is no difference between Barack Obama and George W. Bush when it comes to Israel, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah claimed on Thursday. In his first comments since Obama took office on January 20, the reclusive Nasrallah said that the new US administration had so far shown "absolute support" for Israel. Nasrallah spoke Thursday via a video link from his hiding place. He denounced some European officials for allegedly fully supporting Israel during its deadly 22-day military offensive on Gaza. Nasrallah also repeated his criticism of Egypt for keeping its border crossing with Gaza closed. He said that Egypt was "lying" to the Arab and Islamic world when it said it opened the crossing.
