Yesterday, the Secretary-General of Lebanese Islamic Resistance, Sayyed Nasrallah Hizbullah in a speech broadcast on TV supported, for the first time, the current mass protests going against the USraeli puppet regimes in both Tunisia and Egypt.
Sayyed Nasrallah expressed belief that the victory of the Egyptian people in its revolution will change the whole face of the region. “On behalf of Hezbollah and all resistance parties, we place our capabilities at your service,” said in his speech.
Sayyed Nasrallah spoke at the end of a rally organized in support of Egypt by a number of Lebanese political parties and figures at Ghobeiry square, Beirut. The rally was held under the slogans “In support of the Egyptian people’s revolution against the Camp David regime” and “In support of Egypt’s Arab identity.”
Sheikh Nasrallah offered his apology to the Tunisian and Egyptian people for the delay in this stance of support, which was not delayed by hesitation or confusion. “After all our experiences in resistance the American-Zionist schemes in Lebanon and the region, we cannot stand by idly when the dispute takes place between the oppressed and oppressor, between the right and the wrong. He emphasized that his party and the other Lebanese national parties delayed their stance of support to make sure the Egyptian patriotic men are not accuses of receiving assistance. “In case we announced solidarity earlier, they would have said that the revolution was motivated by Hezbollah or Hamas cells or even by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Then, this real, original and patriotic movement would be accused of serving a foreign agenda.
Hezbollah Secretary General, meanwhile, declared solidarity with the Egyptian nation in its patriotic revolution against the current regime. “One of the faces of our support to this historic and great revolution is defending it and one of the elements of defense is displaying its true image,” his eminence said.
According to Sayyed Nasrallah, we’re witnessing a real, patriotic and popular Egyptian revolution in which Muslims and Christians are participating as well as Islamic, scholar, national, and intellectual various movements. “In this revolution, all Egyptians are taking part, including children, women, men, intellectuals, scholars, workers. But the major and strongest element in this revolution remains the youth generation. That’s why we can say that we’re before a complete revolution.”
Hizbullah came into existence against the Jewish occupation of Southern Lebanon in the 1980s. Hizbullah is the only Arab militia which has defeated the ‘mighty’ Jewish army twice – in 2000 and 2006. The Resistance has changed from a social group to an armed resistance and a political force in Lebanon. In the 2009 national election – Hizbullah-led opposition parties secured 54.3% of the votes but due to the ethnic-based parliament seating – it could not form the government. However, recently, it brought a soft coup against the USrael-supported government of Sa’ad Hariri and now an independent politician Najib Mikati is heading the next government.
In December 2009, Gen. Benji Netanyahu had claimed that Hizbullah is the ‘real’ Lebanon Army.
