Abdo of the Hariri Atlantic Council: said: "“Nasrallah has made very clear over the last two years that Hezbollah now functions as a Shia militia,” Abdo said." He never ever said this and never uttered such words. Now if she is interpreting his actions, that is her right. Just as I read almost daily in the US media by ALL US correspondents in the Middle East that Bashshar Al-Asad said that he is there "to protect minorities". And t he funny part is that if you correct the record and state that the Syrian potentate never said such things, you are immediately accused of being a Shabbih. Thus are the rules of Syrian "revolution" propaganda in the West: just as if you criticize Israel you are accused of anti-Semitism.
