Israel is the main enemy, Sheikh Naim Qassem said, according to the Lebanese Daily Star. But the tactical priority depends on the direct threat, so our confrontation with takfiri (extremist) groups derives from the direct danger they represent, and it does not affect our readiness to confront Israel, he declared. [] Israel is the enemy of humanity and truth, said Qassem. It cannot coexist with anyone.
