Former MK Azmi Bishara met recently with Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, the Lebanese newspaper As-Safir reported on Monday. According to the report, the two discussed an array of regional topics, particularly the Palestinian issue. Bishara left Israel in early June after being grilled twice by investigators and later resigned his Knesset seat. Police said he would be arrested immediately if he returns to Israel on charges of espionage for Hizbullah. Both he and Hizbullah have denied the accusations. He has said he is a victim of political persecution. In August, Bishara praised Hizbullah, saying it was stronger than ever, and condemned Israeli attacks against innocent Lebanese civilians during last year's Second Lebanon War.
