Sayyid Nasrallah's Speech on the Second Anniversary of the 'Divine Victory' of 2006

Shaykh Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah's recent speech on the second anniversary of the end of the July 2006 War (Harb Tamuz) can be viewed here, for those readers interested in practicing their Arabic listening skills:

The official English translation of the speech may be viewed here.

"To recall Israel's defeat in Lebanon in 2000... need I remind [Ehud] Barak of the speeches he had made when he ran for Prime Minister of the enemy Government? Or during his term as PM in 2000 and his admitting failure and the failure of all methods of confrontation with the resistance in Lebanon?! And that "Israel" has no choice but to withdraw from Lebanon?

Do I also need to remind him of the date he set for withdrawal in July 2000, but was forced by the resistance to withdraw earlier in May 2000, when the resistance imposed a different timing and withdrawal scenario as well as a humiliating withdrawal he could not employ politically nor obtain political or security gains for it from Lebanon or Syria?"

-Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah
