Pave Lebanon--put up a parking lot. NOW.

F'n bastards:

Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Monday that his guerrillas achieved a "strategic, historic victory" against Israel _ a declaration that prompted celebratory gunfire across the Lebanese capital.

Israel's prime minister, however, maintained the offensive eliminated the "state within a state" run by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.

Lebanese civilians jammed onto roads to stream back to war-ravaged areas Monday after a the cease-fire halted the fighting that claimed more than 900 lives.

For the first time in a month, no rockets were fired into northern Israel, but few Israelis who fled the war were seen returning and Israel's government advised them to stay away for now.

Nasrallah said Hezbollah "came out victorious in a war in which big Arab armies were defeated (before)."

He also said now was not the time to debate the disarmament of his guerrilla fighters.

Nasrallah, speaking on the day a cease-fire took effect _ ending 34 days of fighting between Hezbollah and Israel _ called Monday "a great day."

"We are today before a strategic, historic victory, without exaggeration," he said in a taped speech on Hezbollah's al-Manar TV.

Yeah.... and my grandfather was the queen of England, you puke.
