Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has called for a week of protests in Lebanon against the anti-Islam YouTube video produced by a small group of Coptic Christians in the US.

The video, which spawned violent protests across the Muslim world, allows Nasrallah to distract from the brutal crackdown being pushed by his ally to the east, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, says Karim Sadjadpour of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Hezbollah's stock spikes when popular outrage is greatest against the US and Israel, Sadjadpour told Al Jazeera.
