Hezbollah, Hizbullah, and Israel's "never before seen missile"

Hezbollah (or Hizbullah, or Hazbillagh, or Khabibulin, or “the terrorists formerly known as Hezbollah,” or whatever the media’s calling them this week) have fired a five Fajr-5 rockets into Israel.

The rockets are described in the YNet News story as being “never before seen in Israel.” What does this mean? Did they have a foreskin?

Speaking of different ways to spell “Hezbollah,” here are the results of a Google battle I just staged:

Hezbollah” returned 37,900,000 results

Hizbullah” returned 4,160,000 results

Hizbulla” returned 32,700 results

Hizboola” returned 12,000 results

Hezbulla” returned 9,350 results

and “Hizboola” returned a paltry 21 search results.

For now, just to be safe, I’m sticking with spelling it “T-e-r-r-o-r-i-s-t-s.”
