Nasrallah: Bush protecting 'racist' state of Israel

"America has entered regional wars in order to protect Israel," Hizbullah Chief Hassan Nasrallah claimed in a speech televised in Beirut Wednesday night. "[US President George] Bush sees [Israel] as a Jewish state, and therefore, a racist one. Everybody knows what the Zionist gangs did in Palestine to conquer Palestinian land, [they] killed them, massacred them and expelled them," Nasrallah was quoted on the group's Al-Manar station as saying. Nasrallah called Bush's visit to Israel a "black day for Arabs."
