Good Question

If Hezbollah thinks they can do better than Hamas in a fight with Israel, they are sadly mistaken. Israel won't deal with Hezbollah the same way Israel fought Hamas.

Hezbollah is feeling pretty confident after seeing Hamas not get completely pounded in the late conflict with Israel:

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned Israel on Sunday that thousands of rockets would rain down on Tel Aviv and cities across the Jewish state if it attacked Lebanon.

Speaking four days after the ceasefire which ended a week of conflict between Israel and the Islamist Hamas rulers of Gaza, Nasrallah said Hezbollah's response to any attack would dwarf the rocket fire launched from Palestinian territories.

"Israel, which was shaken by a handful of Fajr-5 rockets during eight days - how would it cope with thousands of rockets which would fall on Tel Aviv and other (cities) ... if it attacked Lebanon?" Nasrallah said.

Oh, I have an idea how Israel would cope.

The funny thing is, Hezbollah's boast is exactly the reason Israel will destroy Hezbollah's Lebanon base if they fight.
