Nasrallah Worried About the Islamic State 'Monster'

Nasrallah's Hezbollah is an Iran-proxy Shi'ite terror group in Lebanon, and as of yet has avoided conflict with the Sunni group IS in Lebanon, leaving the fighting to the Lebanese army. IS has already overrun vast portions of Iraq and Syria in a blitz campaign over the last two months, in the process committing atrocities and acts of ethnic cleansing.

IS is planning "on expanding toward Jordan and Saudi Arabia by undermining the security and stability of these countries," Nasrallah said in a meeting with the Druze leader Walid Jumblatt, according to the Lebanese The Daily Star on Thursday, which cited a Hezbollah official.
