Nasrallah on TV

Al-Jazeera is now broadcasting a videostatement by Nasrallah given to Al-Manar.

He's accusing the US of sponsoring the current war, saying the plans for Rice's "New Middle East" has been laid a long time ago. This project is nothing but a new Pax Americana, said Nasrallah, that aims at liquidating the resistance groups in Palestine and Iraq.

He also threatened Israel, "We are now at the post-Haifa stage. Our missiles campaign will be extended to a new level."
