More Muslim hubris, from Hezbollah

From UPI:

Some 30 large Hezbollah flags were raised Friday across southern Lebanon, several meters from the Israeli border, for the first time since last summer's war, as UN peacekeepers there changed commanders. The act was seen as a message from Hizbullah to Israel that despite the deployment of an expanded UNIFIL force and the Lebanese army, the group was still present in southern Lebanon. Italian Maj. Gen. Claudio Graziano took over command of the UNIFIL forces, which currently stand at 12,000.
