Saudi TV Channel Parody Lampoons Hizbullah's Leader Nasrallah, Sparks Anger among Supporters. (MEMRI).
On February 27, the Saudi MBC TV channel aired a parody, in which an actor impersonating Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is shown taking orders from Iran. "We are independent... Iran does not give us any orders at all," declared "Nasrallah" in the skit, as he fawningly kissed the hand of an off-screen black-robed cleric, representing Iran. The parody sparked anger among Hizbullah supporters in Lebanon.
