Nasrallah And Kryptonite

Look up in the sky!
It's a bird!
It's a plane!!'s Hassan Nasrallah, the Hezbollah leader depicted as a Jewish super hero!

Annie Jacobsen explains at Pajamas Media:
But it appears not all religious clerics are doing their homework about which Jew created what incredibly popular icon. Last summer, Hassan Nasrallah — the leader of the terrorist organization Hezbollah — appeared proudly depicted as Superman in the Palestinian daily newspaper Al Ayyam. In the cartoon, Nasrallah was pictured pulling back his religious robes, a la Clark Kent, to reveal a Superman suit underneath. Superman is Lebanon’s most popular superhero. Many teenagers believe him to be Lebanese because of his dark, swarthy looks. But if Barbie is “Jewish,” so is Superman; he was created by two Jews named Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster, in 1932.

The same goes for just about every other “Jewish” superhero, many of whom are growing increasingly popular throughout the same countries in the Middle East. This summer, audiences from Egypt to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) flocked to see movies about Batman, Iron Man, the Hulk, and the X-Men — all as “Jewish” as Barbie and Superman are. Each of these superheroes was created by a Jewish-American comic book writer.
Read the whole thing.

Is seems that, just like Superman, Nasrallah too is not invincible. has a video on YouTube--with embedding disabled--showing Nasrallah standin with child murderer Samir Kuntar bragging about his victory. Apparently, Nasrallah's appearance had to be cut short. At 3 minutes into the video, we are told:
While Nasrallah spoke of lofty victories against the State of Israel, his actions spoke louder than his words. His rare public appearance and brief personal welcome of the prisoners was cut short due to security concerns and the leader quickly returned to the security of his bunker to deliver a keynote speech by television.
Yeah, you can never be too careful with all of that Kryptonite lying around.
