Nasrallah is prepared. He wants his people to be miserable and blame Israel. He hopes many of them suffer the loss of a loved on to the Israeli military, and war is the way to get there. This way, he can blame Israel and Jews for everything wrong with their society.
Nasrallah will be safely hidden away in France or some bunker while the brainwashed canon fodder lose their lives.
So to some extent, he’s right. Israel is wise to this game from Iran and Hamas and probably soon a starving Egypt, and that’s why it’s often surprising they react so mildly. Israel would happily see the people around it living very good lives, because this would relieve the need for Israel to be blamed for the failures of Arab/Persian societies.
