Celebrating Nasrallah's last Ashura
A number of cabinet ministers on Sunday called for the assassination of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, a day after the Lebanon-based Islamist group announced it was holding the remains of Israel Defense Forces soldiers killed in the Second Lebanon War.
"Nasrallah is a cruel and crazy man," said Minister Yitzhak Cohen (Shas), during the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. "I don't understand why he is still breathing. We should have liquidated him a long time ago. I recommend the cabinet assassinate the man".
Interior Minister Meir Sheetrit (Kadima) echoed the sentiment, saying, "Nasrallah is a person who has crossed all lines of inhumanity. We don't need to negotiate with him, we need to destroy him." (Haaretz)
Housing and Construction Minister Ze'ev Boim reiterated Sheetrit's call, referring to the Hizbullah leader as a "sewer rat who should dig his own hole."
