Hezbo's Nasty Nasrallah the World's Biggest Suck Up?

Let's just say he's in the top two:
TEHRAN – Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has said that Iran has a significant role to play now that the region is experiencing a critical situation.
Nasrallah made the remarks during a meeting with the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, Saeed Jalili, in Beirut on Tuesday, the Persian service of IRNA reported.
The Hezbollah leader thanked the Iranian Supreme Leader, government, and nation for their resistance in the face of the plots hatched by the West and the Zionists.
“At this juncture that nations have awakened and have stood up to the plots of the United States and Zionism, the axis of resistance that enjoys public support will enter (the scene of) confrontation with the enemy more strongly,” he stated.
He added that the Zionist and U.S. plots against the resistance movement are nothing new, saying, “We had previously experienced such crises and could weather them through resistance and resilience.”
But that's only the half the story. The other half concerns the secretary's spin, a preview of the kind of blather you will be able to hear at the Khomeinists' upcoming Al Quds Days in various cities around the world (including, of course, in Tehran):
 For his part, Jalili said, “The Palestinian and Lebanese resistance is a source of pride and dignity for the Arab world, and the current Islamic Awakening in the region is a fruit of this movement.”
He added, “As we have been supporting the oppressed Palestinian people in regard to the Palestinian issue despite all the problems, we will support the people of the region throughout the process of the Islamic Awakening and the revolution against the global arrogance (forces of imperialism).”
“Given this, we believe that the Syrian nation and officials should decide about the future and destiny of their country, and democracy is the only solution to Syria’s problems,” Jalili noted.
As you probably already know, in this context "democracy" equals Shia-style sharia.
