Hizbullah MP General (Ret.) Walid Sakariya On Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV: Iranian Nuclear Weapon To 'Finish Off The Zionist Enterprise'
Following are excerpts from an interview with Hizbullah MP General (ret.) Walid Sakariya, which aired on Al-Manar TV on August 7, 2012.
Walid Sakariya: "My analysis is the following: If Iran becomes a nuclear state, the entire equation in the Middle East will change.
"In such a case, Syria would have to be steadfast even if a war of attrition is waged against it in order to accomplish this goal, because this [nuclear] weapon is meant for Syria too, not just for Iran.
"The viewers should not interpret this as if Syria is serving an Iranian agenda.
"This nuclear weapon is meant to create a balance of terror with Israel, to finish off the Zionist enterprise, and to end all Israeli aggression against the Arab nation."

|"The chief aim of all government is to preserve the freedom of the citizen. His control over his person, his property, his movements, his business, his desires should be restrained only so far as the public welfare imperatively demands. The world is in more danger of being governed too much than too little.
It is the teaching of all history that liberty can only be preserved in small areas. Local self-government is, therefore, indispensable to liberty. A centralized and distant bureaucracy is the worst of all tyranny.
Taxation can justly be levied for no purpose other than to provide revenue for the support of the government. To tax one person, class or section to provide revenue for the benefit of another is none the less robbery because done under the form of law and called taxation."
