"11/11/2007 Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech through a large screen Sunday marking the Martyr's Day in Beirut's southern suburb.
Sayyed Nasrallah said that Israel's recent military training maneuvers near the Lebanese border were intended to prepare for a new war on Lebanon, adding that Hezbollah's own drills in southern Lebanon were in direct response to the Israeli exercises, intended to send out ''a clear message'' to the Israeli leadership that Hezbollah was ready to fight.
''The (Israeli) enemy has been conducting military maneuvers for months. The latest maneuvers occurred a few weeks ago near the Lebanese border in which 50,000 Israeli officers and soldiers participated,'' Sayyed Nasrallah said. ''These maneuvers are to prepare for an attack on Lebanon,'' he said.
"I tell the (Israeli) enemy that these maneuvers were real, serious and big. I am not going to give details. There is a great deal of readiness (by Hezbollah) which the enemy must understand," his eminence said in his speech Sunday.
"These maneuvers were intended to send out a clear message to the world which is besieging us and to this enemy that that the resistance in Lebanon possesses determination, men and the necessary and sufficient weapons to defend Lebanon," Sayyed Nasrallah said drawing cheers from the crowd.
Without elaborating, he added, "The resistance is ready to make a victory for Lebanon that will change the region's face."
Concerning the presidential poll in Lebanon, Hezbollah's Secretary General thanked President Emile Lahhoud for his steadiness and his support for the resistance calling on him to assume responsibility in accordance with the Lebanese laws and constitution.
His eminence said that the presidential elections spell out the shape up of the new government and the role of the Lebanese army. Sayyed Nasrallah called for early parliamentary elections, saying the one who wins with majority would bring a president for the republic. "
