ABSTRACT
The article profiles Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah, the charismatic leader of Hezbollah. Nasrallah won sympathy and love from around the Muslim world when his son was killed by Israeli soldiers in 1997. He is the only Arab leader to get Israel to withdraw from occupied territory without a peace treaty. In spite of the heavily religious nature of Hezbollah, Nasrallah can unite Arabs and Muslims across ethnic lines.
