I heard about this rumor in the morning and I looked into it. It is wishful thinking. The Iranians are in complete control of Nasrallah's personal safety as I pointed out in my previous correspondence. If he were truly poisoned, one would have to blame the Iranians for it. I asked a colleague of mine (XXXX), who is a toxicologist at XXXX (actually he is Lebanon's best toxicologist) and he dismissed this piece of information. He said if Nasrallah were truly poisoned, HZ would have contacted him first.
