How to celebrate a victory

The AP quotes a wealthy Palestinian fruit importer:
"My wife wanted to call the baby Nasrallah, but I wanted Hezbollah — to commemorate the entire resistance," he said smiling.
The proud parent seemed fully aware of, but narcissistically uninterested in, the consequences for the child:
"My friends said with this name he won't be able to work, or travel abroad. I have business in Israel as well — but you know, there is a nationalist spirit in me," he said.
One Gaza hospital reports six babies named after Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
