Hezbollah decided not to interfere in Iraq, MP


MP Walid SakariyaThe Iranian backed Hezbollah militant group stressed on Friday that it will not intervene in the security situation in Iraq, expressing fear of the spread of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or (ISIS).

“Hezbollah has nothing to do with Iraq… Iraq is bigger than the capabilities of the party,” Hezbollah’s bloc MP Walid Sakariya told al-Joumhouria newspaper.

He stressed that “it’s time to end the abnormal phenomena of ISIL.”

Tens of Hezbollah fighters are in Syria on orders from Iran to back President Bashar Assad’s army as he battles the mostly Sunni rebels who have been trying to overthrow him for the past three years.

“The developments in Iraq will have major repercussions on the situation in the area and the policies followed by all states, especially the U.S. policies,” Sukariya said.

Hezbollah, a staunch ally of both Iran, Syria, and Iraq says it is supporting Assad against Takfiris (Sunni extremists) who are targeting Syria’s Alawites, an offshoot of the Shiite sect.

After taking over Mosul , Iraq’s second largest city ISL took over Saddanm Hussein’s hometown Tikrit which lies between Mousl and Baghdad and currently is marching towards Baghdad

According to an analyst who is familiar with Hezbollah , “it is not up to Sakariya to decide whether Hezbollah will intervene in Iraq or not , since the militant group is part of the Iranian revolutionary Guards ( which is already in Iraq) the decision is Iran’s . He added: “After all there is a Hezbollah branch in Iraq too and Hezbollah has trained many Iraq’ Shiite militias “

    ‘The word’ from the ‘New Head of Lebanon’. Nice they admit Iran runs them.
    Notes to editiors:
    You should say ‘all of’ instead of ‘both’ Iran, Syria, and Iraq … throw Lebanon into the mix ….
    Why keep citing Tikrit as Saddam’s ‘home-town’? Doesn’t Tikrit have anything else going for it than a memory of a dead despot?? Hmmm …maybe not.

    When and where religion interpreted as politic tool and twisted it for their lust and when and where a nation only have religion but no civilization at all and when and where people not understand and not love democracy and new kind of democracy and when and where people are too greedy and sit too long in his office.

    Oh please go to Iraq and fight the ISIL. Hopefully you both erase each other and we never see any islamic extremists from HEzbolloh or JIhadists.. may you all find your virgins and go play with them as much as you like..

    1. Do not confuse Hezbollah with the Jihadists. Hezbollah was never a terrorist group, all they ever did was fight terrorism in Syria and fight Israel off Lebanon. Hezbollah men are true soldiers fighting for the weak, they are mostly a defence force, not an attacking one, and they don’t believe in no virgins in heaven, this is an Alqaeda-Jihadist idea.

        And I killed Hariri because i was so jealous he was very rich.
        I killed 18 other people with him too and many more leaders from 2005 and continuing. I am the one who is going around intimidating lebanese to submit to their will. I am the one who helped the Syrian intelligence torture Lebanese and drag them to Syrian jails. are you nuts dude? what planet did you come from?

    Glad to see that they are capable of making a national decision without the governments approval!
    Also glad to know that they are part of irans revolutionary guard, yet their supporters criticize the Lebanese Forces to this day for Once Upon a Time for being financed by israel. Bunch of hypocrites!!

      Why do you say they’re part of Iran’s revolutionary guard? Is this assumption based on statements made by “an analyst who are familiar with Hezbollah”?

        You guessed it mano, I personally do not make assumptions. I just read it from the last paragraph as the analyst has assumed. But in all fairness, don’t you think that HA have a large role in iran’s agenda??

          There have been a few articles like this lately. At the end of the article they quote some anonymous “analyst” or “observer” who is clearly anti HA, lol.

          I do think that their agendas align. Iran is their main backer and they have similar adversaries.

          Are they part of the revolutionary guard? No, I don’t they’re part of the Iranian military. Do they work together in regional conflicts? Yes

          Will HA put Iran before Lebanon? In my opinion, thats yet to be seen. Some may argue that they already have. Like I already said, they do have mutual enemies, so I can see were speculation could arise.
