Ahmadinejad on Israel's doorstep vows support for Hezbollah
Russia Today

Iran's President has wrapped up his controversial trip to Lebanon - having stirred up emotions in neighbouring Israel and the U.S. over his growing support for the military group Hezbollah. Before ending the visit, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met the group's leader, who reportedly handed him a gun that was taken from an Israeli soldier. Earlier, Ahmadinejad lashed out at Israel saying 'Zionists will be defeated' and called for 'Palestine to be forcefully freed'. His comments were made just kilometres away from the border with Israel, sparking protests there, and criticism in the U.S.
