Netanyahu to Nasrallah: Want a fight? You'll get 'unimaginable' response | JPost |

If Hezbollah dares confront Israel it will receive an unimaginable blow, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as Jerusalem's crisis with Moscow over Syria's downing of a Russian plane triggered an unusual "war of words" with terrorist leader Hassan Nasrallah.

Speaking on Thursday at a Bible study group that he holds a several times a year at his residence, Netanyahu referred to comments Nasrallah made earlier in the day that Hezbollah already has the precision missiles Israel is trying to prevent Iran from transferring via Syria.

"I heard the words that came from the direction of Hezbollah, and they came from the same person who said after [the Second Lebanon War in] 2006 that if he knew what Israel's response would have been to the kidnapping of our soldiers [Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev], he would have considered twice whether to do so. So today I recommend he think not twice, but 20 times, because if he confronts us, he will get a blow that he cannot even imagine."

Nasrallah claimed on Thursday that the balance of power between the Lebanese Shi'ite terrorist group and Israel has "changed," and that the group has accurate missiles that would be used in the next conflict.
