Nasrallah news: is the Beirut groundhog leaving his favorite cellar?

It's already seven years since "sheik" Hassan Nasrallah, the fearless fighter for... (what was it really? I forget by now) went into a cellar, showing his mug to his followers mainly on a TV screen. He certainly looks too pale in recent pictures:



It is either getting some sun or a regular daily intake of food supplements (aka "vitamins"). Otherwise the scurvy, the toenail fungus and other kinds of rot will get the brave one. But the day of emergence seems to be close:
"I will go myself to Syria if it is necessary in the battle against the takfiris (Sunni radicals)," Mr Nasrallah said, on his own TV channel.
He left it open to guesswork, but I think that even this habitual groundhog doesn't mean by "I will go myself to Syria" that "his own TV channel", whatever that means, will be opening in Damascus soon.

In the same breath, the fearless one blamed the above mentioned takfiris in the explosion that occurred in his Beirut neighborhood. Which sounded strange, because for some reason he decided to contradict his buddy the Lebanese president, who declared something entirely different earlier:
On Thursday, Michel Suleiman condemned the explosion in the Dahiyeh quarter saying it had the fingerprints of Israel, and its purpose was to destabilize Lebanon.
Which was hardly surprising to anyone, aside of our President:
President Shimon Peres said in a meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Friday that he was surprised to learn that the Lebanese president had blamed Israel for Thursday's Beirut bombing.
But being surprised is the privilege of our president, all things considered. We, the simple people, shall be surprised to see Nasrallah, the paleface underground fatso, leading his troops into battle with the Syrian rebels. Or with anyone else, for that matter.

So, as usual, for the readers of Russian: "Опять Насрала".

Go to Syria himself? Ha. Next he'll be promising to strap on a suicide belt.

Nasrallah,
Of him I don't think much, at least not in public. The picture though literally begs for a caption contest! Let's see.
"No more circle dancing!"
