Ahmadinejad vows to stand by Hizbullah against Israel

Iran's president on Thursday said that if the Israelis launch a new war against Hizbullah, the terror group should retaliate strongly enough to "close their case once and for all."
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's comments, in a conversation with Hizbullah's leader, were the latest in a heated exchange of rhetoric between Israel and Lebanon and Syria this month in which all sides have been warning the other not to start a war.
Speaking by phone, Ahmadinejad urged Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah to prepare his fighters to be able to retaliate strongly against any Israeli attack.
"The preparations should be of the level that, if they (the Israelis) want to repeated the mistakes of the past (by attacking), then their case should be closed once and for all and the region delivered from their evil ways forever," the Iranian president said, according to the state news agency IRNA.
