Dr. Nasrallah!

That diploma will look just grand hanging in Nasrallah's office. And how apt it is that Nasrallah's doctorate is in political science. He'll be Norman Finkelstein's colleague! From Fars News:
Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyed Hassan Nasrallah received an honorary doctorate in the field of political science from an Iranian university in Isfahan, as part of the events to mark the university's 300th birthday.

Sheikh Hassan Hamda accepted the degree on behalf of Nasrallah.

In a statement from Nasrallah read at the ceremony, he thanked Iran for its support of Hezbollah's fight against Israel and expressed the hope that one day the Shiite group would change the face of the Middle East.

Nasrallah also thanked the Iranians for "25 years of support and aid for the Hezbollah organization and its warriors in southern Lebanon."

He also mentioned Israel, and said his group had won "two big triumphs" against "the most equipped armed forces in the region".

"The Israeli army", Nasrallah wrote, "is considered an undefeatable army, but thanks to the Lebanese resistance it became a worldwide model of failure."

He also stressed that "Iran's support was always the main factor in the victories and it always will be."

Nasrallah also heaped praise on the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, and said that with his support "the victories of 2000 and 2006 were achieved." [...]
Good thing the Supreme Leader is so humble. He won't let all that praise go to his head.
