Sara El-Yafi answers this question with an illustration of Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah.

“War?! Will this be another July war?” was an exciting question to ask following the latest Hezbollah-Israeli events. And knowing Israel’s love of war, in Lebanon, we worry, you know? Because sometimes we get killed, sometimes we don’t, and fussy people like to know. Y’know? So, I hereby present you with my brief response to your esteemed question (wasn’t brief to draw though). I hope this makes you all feel better. See the drawing below.

You’re so welcome.

    "...And knowing Israel’s love of war..." - yes, Israel "loves" war. Israelis "love" to have their cars bombarded. Israelis "love" to get killed and kidnapped. Unlike the Lebanese, right? they just "hate" it. I thought you are a seriouse magazine. guess I was wrong.
