Palestinians, young and old and from all political orientations, are wholesomely praising Hizb Allah Leader Sheikh Hasan Nasr Allah for getting Israel to release hundreds of Palestinian and Arab prisoners.

“[Nasrallah} is a real man, he is better than all Arab leaders combined,” said Haj Suleiman Katalu, of Dura, 12 miles south West of Hebron.

“What have the Arab leaders done for us? Nothing.”

CBC Radio's report on this noted that Palestinians are concerned about the lack of effectiveness the PA has in doing anything to help them.

An irony in the IOF's destruction of the PA infrastructure since the beginning of the al-Aqsa Intifada is that by doing so Israel has strengthened Hizbollah's position in the region.
