Nasrallah: Our Enemy Knows How We Avenge Mughniyeh

Al Akhbar | February 16, 2012

Hezbollah leader Hasan Nasrallah said his party was not involved in recent bombings that took place in India, Georgia, and Thailand earlier this month, while reiterating the party’s intention to avenge the killing of its leader Imad Mughniyeh four years ago.

“It is insulting for Hezbollah to avenge its great leader by killing ordinary Israelis, as for those who are our target, they know who they are and they are taking measures and I tell them to remain doing so for we shall avenge Imad Mughniyeh in an honorable way,” Nasrallah said.

Nasrallah was speaking during a televised speech Thursday evening to commemorate the martyrdom of three of the party’s top leaders, Ragheb Harb, Imad Mughniyeh, and Abbas al-Mousawi, at the hands of Israel. Nasrallah reiterated the continued arming of the resistance and repeated his call to pull out from public use personally owned arms.

Commenting on the Arab revolutions, Nasrallah criticized what he termed as “the interference of [Lebanon’s] March 14 and their sending of weapons and bolstering of fighting among the Syrian people,” reminding the rival political group of their objection to Hezbollah’s support of Bahraini protestors and material aid to resistance in Palestine via Egypt.

Nasrallah cautioned against discord in Egypt and pointed fingers at the US and Israel for fomenting it, saying that Israeli officials are living in a state of anxiety due to its dwindling power.

He also lamented that “Arab peoples and governments are not occupied with Palestine” while Palestinians, including prisoners on hunger strike, and Bahrainis, are left to their own devices.

In relation to Syria, Nasrallah said the regime has its shortcomings as acknowledged he says by its leadership but that “it has stood in the face of the US-Israeli project and supported resistance.” While the regime did not open up a front in Golan, none of its detractors, Nasrallah argued, has opened such a front or supported the resistance.

Nasrallah criticized the total refusal to engage with dialogue with the Syrian regime and opt for a political solution in Syria by the same people who call for negotiations with Israel and have engaged with it for decades. He leveled similar criticism against those who bar the supply of weapons to Israel while sending weapons to Syria so the “Syrians fight each other.”

Nasrallah wondered why there is “a Western-Israeli-Arab insistence to fight in Syria and topple the regime” suggesting it is cause for political reflection.

  1. Funny those comments from “Said” Hasan Nasrallah about Israeli officials having to take “measures”… Especially considering the fact that due to “measures” on his own side “Said” Hasan Nasrallah barely ever leaves his protected bunker let alone travels abroad… While Israeli officials, from the PM down, are seen on a daily basis in public spaces… In and out of Israel…

    • Yes Hans, a sick person would find that really funny.

      The real dilemma for the Zionists though is that they are stuck living with themselves. If I were sick I would find that funny, but I actually just find it pathetic.

      • Perhaps English isn’t your 1st language… When somebody writes “funny” about something in English it doesn’t necessarily mean funny as in ha ha funny… It can also mean funny as in interesting… It’s all in the context…

        Having said that, your willingness to ascribe to me qualities for which you have no proof is quite telling… I guess I’m hitting some sore spots because now you have felt the need to get personally offensive… Well done!… Your problem is that words don’t hurt me… Nor is your opinion about my person and/or views worthy of any consideration on my side…

        As for the Zionists “being stuck living with themselves”, I could be considered a Zionist (as I agree with their wish for a homeland for the Jews) and I assure you that I have loads of friends… Some who agree with my views and others who agree to disagree with my views…

        What’s really pathetic is your juvenile attempt to target the person rather then the opinion… How old are you?!…
