He then went back to the old playbook, saying that Israel's existence is the central issue and expressing frustration that Arab nations and jihad groups aren't prioritizing attacking the Jewish state.
Excerpts rom Al Manar:
"What is going on now in Palestine reflects a lofty and sublime Jihad spirit," his eminence [sic] said, "We are witnessing operations carried out almost on a daily basis."Since Nasrallah slavishly follows Iran's Ayatollah's Khamenei's opinion, this indicates that there is a push from Iran to arm terror groups in Israel, despite the hot/cold relationship between Iran and Hamas.
"Those actions reflect certainty and faith which fascinate the world as all the run over and stabbing operations end with martyrdom."
"Those innovative methods used by the Palestinians to carry out martyrdom operation reflect their awareness, not despair which struck a lot of people who resorted to drugs and many other worlds."
Hezbollah leader pointed out that the Palestinians have always been confronting the Zionist entity on the behalf of all the Arabs and that considering the struggle as merely Palestinian-Israeli has always been a wrong approach.
"The problem is that some people have become convinced that Israel does not pose any peril against the Umma."
Sayyed Nasrallah noted that we feel hurt when we consider the fact the Umma sent in the past hundreds of thousands of fighters to Afghanistan to fight the Soviet occupation, while it has not sent those mujahidin to confront the Zionist entity, wondering whether Afghanistan is more sacred than Palestine.
If all the suicide bombings which targeted the Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Nigerians, Pakistanis and Afghanis had been employed against the Zionist entity, it would have vanished, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who also stressed that those terrorist attacks aimed at destroying the Umma's solidarity, armies and peoples.
Hezbollah Secretary General considered that some Muslims and Arabs, including a segment of the Lebanese people, have become convinced that 'Israel' is not the Umma's enemy and got involved in internal conflicts, adding that those also do not believe that the Zionist entity poses a peril and a threat against the entire region.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that Instead of provoking hostility against the Zionists, some Arab governments have instigated feuds against the Palestinians and that they even gloat over their losses.
Also, this interview indicates clearly that Hezbollah's "political wing" unabashedly supports terror, as Nasrallah is calling explicitly for suicide bombings in Israel in addition to the knifings and other attacks. Someone might want to tell the EU.
The comments responding to this speech in the French-language Lebanese site L'Orient Le Jour show that its readers are sick of Nasrallah's hijacking the country to fight in Syria and pick fights with Israel.
It's always the same useless speeches. He never speaks of the unity of the Lebanese nation, the election of the President of the Republic
...He takes the Lebanese fighting to protect a tyrant who made 250,000 deaths, directly or indirectly, half its population fleeing
the country totally destroyed, let him fight in the West Bank and Gaza the Israeli army instead of accusing the Arab countries!
But there is another dimension!
Too many Lebanese dead for a cause that is not ours
Another responded succinctly:
Sacred Sayyed, always busy defending the causes of the world except those of the Lebanese peopleNone supported his position.
