Nasrallah "threatened to cut off Walid Jumblatt's hand"

This is from Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting. The actual title is "Crisis can only be solved through national dialogue." I guess that means dialog with threats of maiming.
Secretary General of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hezbollah said Lebanon's crisis could only be solved if the government agreed to resume the national dialogue.

"We are ready for dialogue but I have two things to say: The government's illegal decisions must be rescinded and (the March 14) must respond to (Parliament Speaker Nabih) Berri's call for a national dialogue," Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Thursday.

Nasrallah also warned that the Lebanese government's moves against the resistance movement amount to declaration of war on behalf of the Americans and the Zionist regime.

He said Fuad Siniora's government was seeking to disarm the Movement. "We have not used our weapons inside the country but we will use them to defend ourselves," he commented.

Nasrallah meanwhile threatened to cut off Walid Jumblatt's hand if he dared to touch Hezbollah's weapons. "Whoever is going to target us will be targeted by us."
