Hezbollah: Having an idiot at the White House is a relief for the oppressed around the world

nasrallah 021217Hezbollah’s Secretary General   Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech Sunday that having an “idiot” in the White House makes the group optimistic, a reference to President  Donald Trump.

“We are very optimistic that when an idiot settles in the White House and boasts about his idiocy, this is the beginning of relief for the oppressed around the world,” Nasrallah said  in a televised address commemorating the late Hezbollah official Sheikh Hussein Obeid.

The United States has designated the Iranian backed Hezbollah as a foreign terrorist organization.

Hia  comments come after US Defense Secretary James Mattis called Iran “the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world” in his first comments on the country

The Trump administration imposed fresh sanctions over an Iranian ballistic missile test.

Iran and the United States have engaged in tit-for-tat exchanges since US President  Trump signed an executive order January 27 banning nationals temporarily from seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the United States. Iran was among those countries.

Syria cease fire

Nasrallah said  Hezbollah strongly supports a cease-fire agreement in Syria and an end to bloodshed in the neighboring country and blasted Arab satellite outlet campaigns against his party  that accuse it  of working against diplomatic efforts to end the conflict.

He denied  that the party had rejected the Astana peace talks.

“We [support] an agreement that ends the bloodshed and paves way for a national reconciliation [in Syria].”

Rival Syrian factions met in the Kazakh capital last month for peace talks sponsored by Russia, Iran and Turkey.

The talks were expected to see the first face-to-face negotiations between the government and the armed opposition since the conflict erupted in 2011, in which about 500,000 people have died.

The next round of Astana talks, set for Feb. 15 and 16, will discuss the cease-fire and stabilization measures for specific areas and other “practical steps” ahead of the talks in Geneva, Kazakhstan.

 

Syrian refugees

Nasrallah called on the Lebanese government  to engage in a positive dialogue with Syrian regime  over the refugee crisis.

He expressed his party’s readiness to mediate between the  Lebanese state” and the Syrian  regime  on the matter.

“It’s our duty to deal with the case of the refugees in a humanitarian, rather than political manner,” he said.

Nasrallah also called for cooperation toward repatriating Syrian refugees back to their homeland.

Lebanon is currently hosting around 1.5  million Syrian refugees .

“Lebanon cannot resolve the crisis on its own. It should put aside its stubbornness,” Nasrallah said, urging politicians not to exploit the refugee crisis to beg for money and aid.

Electoral law

Nasrallah also addressed   electoral law  issue

“We want a fair electoral law that allows everyone to be represented at the Parliament.”

“We have a serious desire to block any new extension for the current parliament  and to hold timely elections,” Nasrallah said.

He reiterated that the proportional voting system “gives everyone their real size and [guarantees] their right.”

“Hezbollah supports proportionality because its keen to preserve the rights of all sects, parties and minorities,” he said in reference to  the Druze sect, the Progressive Socialist Party and the Future Movement.

He warned rivals against “wasting more time .

“Stop wasting time,” he said, stressing that Hezbollah was “open to all dialogue and [would] not shut the door.”

Lebanese parties are divided on the characteristics of the new electoral law that will govern the upcoming elections.

The current 1960 winner-takes-all law was used in the last elections in 2009

Stability 

Nasrallah hailed the relative stability and security in Lebanon “despite all the hardships, difficulties and the fire raging in the region and Syria.”

“Stability is a blessing  that [the Lebanese] should hold onto, maintaining firmly and not waste,” he said

He praised cooperation between security agencies and the Lebanese Army, calling on the public to avoid moves that would put stability at risk.

Lebanese security agencies have recently worked to avert several extremist attacks, mainly in Beirut.

Taxes

Nasrallah also discussed the 2017 state budget, rejecting attempts to impose new taxes that negatively impact the poor.

“End embezzlement, corruption, wasting money and [unauthorized] spending [instead],” he said.

“[A] courageous political decision should be taken to cut down [unnecessary] spending,” he added. “This matter isn’t open for debate.”

The Cabinet is currently studying a budget proposal by Finance Minister Ali Hasan. His draft budget calls for a series of new taxes to finance a higher salary scale for civil servants, a demand spearheaded by Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and backed by teachers’ unions.

    When Trump was running for election Hezbollah thought he was going only against ISIS so they supported him. Now he is an idiot.. I wander who was the idiot here that’s stringing alone Lebanon because his master in Tehran want him to such stupid and idiotic things. What the hello are you doing Nassrallah? do you want Trump to stop Lebanese from coming to the U.S? you get into war with Israel in 2006. Since your dumb ass fake Divine Victory you thought you can fight the world. Do not get too arrogant cause if Israel attacks the next time and Trump will support it with no Mercy from him. So think twice about Lebanon First and the Precious lives you will kill because of you idiot and slave of Iran. stop using Lebanon and I wish all those who support Israel, SA, Iran just get the hell out. we could careless having you there. we are better off without you. The number one traitor is Nassrallah and he will stop at nothing to please the masters of Tehran. The hello with this resistance its fake and it only resist anything but Tehran..

          That is not what he meant… He said those who have allegiance to Israel, KSA, Iran, as compared to the allegiance to their own country (Lebanon) please do us all a favor and get a one way ticket to those respective countries.

      you get into war with Israel in 2006

      Are you blaming the war of 2006 on Hezbollah? You seem to (conveniently) forget the incursion of the three IDF vermin into the village of Ayta al-Shab on July, 2006.

        Can i call You Omegahell?

    • master09

      The conflict was precipitated by the Zar’it-Shtula incident. On 12 July 2006, Hezbollah fighters fired rockets at Israeli border towns as a diversion for an anti-tank missile attack on two armored Humvees patrolling the Israeli side of the border fence.[53] The ambush left three soldiers dead. Two Israeli soldiers were abducted and taken by Hezbollah to Lebanon.[53][54] Five more were killed in Lebanon, in a failed rescue attempt. Hezbollah demanded the release of Lebanese prisoners held by Israel in exchange for the release of the abducted soldiers.
      According to Omega his story is less fictional.

    • Omega

      I agree that Hezbollah is now detrimental to Lebanon but the war of 2006 was orchestrated between Israel, the US and people within the Lebanese government (Elias Murr). The incursion and the capture of three IDF soldiers around the village of Ayta al-Shab on July 2006 that triggered the war.

        • Hannibal

          I have no doubt about it. The Israelis have done wonderful things with the land. But enough is enough. My main problem is with the hardliners. Give the Palestinians a state. Without land and a country of their own there will be no peace. We all want peace. It is THAT simple.

          • vs

            PFalestinian (virtual) “state” is another one corrupted failed Orabian “state”. Orabians living in clans, families, tribes. “Successful, in my opinion, can be called only nine Orab states: Kuwait, Qatar and the seven states of the United Orab Emirates: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Ras al-Khaimah, Umm al-Quwain, Fujairah and Sharjah. This are successful, high-grade, quiet countries. At the heart of each of them – one tribe. Thus – and the legitimacy of the state, and the legitimacy of power” Are You want Hamas in Judea and Samaria? No second Gush Katif You will see

            Imperial Russia (like still USSR) very jealously looking on Ukraine, Moldova, Baltic if they want to be in EU or NATO(!) but this is not direct military agression, but mostly informational war (but in case of East Ukraine f.e. here is help to russian separatists) Ideology Рашизм (ruscism) even can be compared with fascism. Sorry You can read fake news about “fascism” “Bandera” in Ukraine instead thinking how to help to Ukraine in its difficult situation

            There seems to be several different Palestinian entities. Who represents Palestinians? Is it Fatah, Hamas or any of the smaller militant groups. There is no unity or love between them and IF there was ever to be an official Palestinian state they would have to get along to some degree with out the constant inter muslim/sect/political divide and outright murder of each other, because we know how well they cooperate. Otherwise one group would destabilize the other. Right now Iran throws some support behind Hamas while Fatah doesn’t want to be an Iranian proxy and under Iranian control, so how could the west bank move forward when Iran would call on Hamas to destabilize any potential deal.
            Palestinian unity has an ice-cubes chance in hell to survive and work together to show Israel they are grown up enough to have a state.

          • Hannibal

            At that point it is really the Palestinian problem… Let them decide their own fate as long as they do not attack their neighbors.

          • Rascal

            Well you know that is not possible when Hamas will continue to not be happy unless the Israelis all jump into the sea and give all the land to them. I have more hope that the West Bank could act more responsible since they don’t take orders from Iran.
            The Palestinian issue is like a scab that never heals, but just handing them statehood without any real understanding between the two main groups is an exercise in futility that could potentially destabilize the area further.

    “Hezbollah: Having an idiot at the White House is a relief for the oppressed around the world”

    Nasrallah’s fat flabby body is in sore need of some mean oppression (or at least carb deprivation). 🙂

  • Arzna

    Nasrallah quoted Trump at a rally in the south of the country last August , saying the presidential candidate’s statements were based on facts.
    Hezbollah MP Nawwaf Musawi said he was optimistic about Trump’s isolationist foreign policy.
    And an ally of Syrian president Bashar Al Al Assad called Trumps’s victory phenomenal
    When asked about Trump’s win, Baath party MP Qassem Hashem said it was “definitely phenomenal.”
    Another Hezbollah ally Tawhid Party Chief Wiam Wahhab praised Trump . He called Trump an “honest man,”
    http://yalibnan.com/2016/11/10/hezbollah-and-its-lebanese-allies-react-positively-to-trumps-election/
    Nasralah is attacking Trump , simply because ayatollah Khmainei attacked Trump .
    This is our problem in Lebanon … we are being forced to align ourselves with Iran regardless how badly it behaves in our region
    At least if Trump misbehaves , the US Congress knows where he is and can remove him by impeaching him
    but no one knows where Nasrallah is hiding to go and get him .
    It doesn’t give the Lebanese much comfort to know that their no. 1 trouble maker is unreachable

    • Hannibal

      Trump signed an executive order allowing the Lebanese (among other countries) to travel to the US without visas. Now the islamic resistance, to appease Iran, and because they are not on the “welcome list” will say nonsense to screw ALL of Lebanon. This is the epitome of irresponsible behavior; dragging the whole of Lebanon into a politic that does NOT align with the benefit of the country. Iran tells him to jump and he does. What a shame.

      • HebAlba

        Not even Iran says such stupidities.

        • Rascal

          Hind, Nasrallah is a puppet for Iran. The Party of god is under the control of Iranian mullahs, and an extension of the IRGC. This is a well known fact. Nassy will not receive and condemnation from Iran because he speaks for them and follows their script in order to keep the paychecks coming from Tehran. You are not that blind are you?

            I am sure she is aware that Iran controls the POG, whether she would admit it is another story. Iran likes to work in the shadows so it can deny everything.
