Iranian Hezbollah Threaten American and Israeli Interests

Yahoo news reports:

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's Hizbollah, which claims links to the Lebanese group of the same name, said on Tuesday it stood ready to attack Israeli and U.S. interests worldwide.

"We have 2,000 volunteers who have registered since last year," said Iranian Hizbollah's spokesman Mojtaba Bigdeli, speaking by telephone from the central seminary city of Qom.

"They have been trained and they can become fully armed. We are ready to dispatch them to every corner of the world to jeopardise Israel and America's interests. We are only waiting for the Supreme Leader's green light to take action. If America wants to ignite World War Three ... we welcome it," he said.

WASHINGTON - The fighting in the Middle East has prompted the FBI to increase its focus on the worldwide activities of the Islamic militant group Hezbollah, but the bureau said Wednesday it has no credible intelligence pointing to an imminent attack in the United States.
