Iran's Parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel warned the Jewish people that no part of their homeland was safe from attack by Hezbollah. Speaker Haddad Adel praised Hezbollah head Nasrallah as a "brave lion" and challenged Israel stating, "If you (Israel) have the right to start a massacre to free one prisoner, Palestinians and Lebanese have far more right to fight you to free hundreds of their prisoners, including Cabinet ministers and lawmakers. Iranian President Ahamdinejad today added, "The Zionist government went too far and wants to occupy Lebanon." Fox analyst Major Bob Bevelacqua, a former Green Beret, stated, "I'm all in favor of the removal of Hezbollah to include the destruction of the organization: I'm not in favor of the dismantling of the country of Lebanon and its infrastructure that's going to adversely affect three million people. He elaborated that Israel has been far too aggressive with its destruction of alot of Lebanese bridges, all of its roads, all of its ports, and most of the gas stations, and, consequently, Israel has shut down the infrastructure of a nation that has nothing to do with Hezbollah. Moreover, he said while Israel was wreaking its damage on Lebanon and waiting until today to attack Hezbollah headquarters, it allowed Hezbollah to remove all of its computers and other equipment from those offices. Israel's attack on the inchoate democracy of Lebanon and its holding Lebanon responsible for not being strong enough to resist Hezbollah may cause American and rest of the the Western world to reassess it unequivocal support of Israel's current actions.
