BEIRUT (AFP) -- Lebanese Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah made a rare public appearance on Friday to show solidarity with Gaza on the annual Iran-led Jerusalem Day commemoration, an AFP correspondent reported.

It was only the fifth public appearance by the head of the Shiite militant group since 2006, who Israel has threatened with assassination for nearly a decade.

Nasrallah appeared on stage from behind a curtain to wild applause from the thousands in the crowd at the indoor venue in a southern suburb of the Lebanese capital.

Jerusalem Day, celebrated every year on the last Friday in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, was this year dedicated to "solidarity with the people and the resistance in Gaza."

As the Palestinian death toll in 18 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza topped 800, Nasrallah announced: "Palestine is still the main cause" in the Muslim world.

Amazing how the leaders of these death cult organizations are the biggest cowards. Haniyeh is in hiding, Mashaal dares not go near Gaza, and Nasrallah has lived in a hole for the last decade. So much for the pillars of the resistance, cowards all!

Nasrallah announced: "Palestine is still the main cause" in the Muslim world. And that's why the Islamic world is a total catastrophe...You backwards people are killing yourselves in the most barbaric manner, yet you still see Israel as your main problem. Hezbollah, Hamas, Boko Haram, Al Quaeda, The Taliban, Al Shabab and the thousands of other radical groups is your problem, killing anyone that thinks different than you is your problem, your inability to try anything but violence is the problem
