Hizbullah Leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stressed on Saturday that the party will put a comprehensive suggestion on the alternatives to fund the long-stalled wage scale and stressed that new taxes targeting the poor need not be imposed, as he urged political parties to make concessions in order to approve an electoral law.

“It has been agreed that the major parliamentary blocs will meet together to review and discuss the wage scale,” said Nasrallah in a televised speech marking the birthday of Fatima al-Zahra, daughter of Muslim prophet Mohammed.

“We strongly support its approval which must be addressed fairly. There must be serious efforts to fund it otherwise it's approval will fail,” added Nasrallah.

“New taxes must not be imposed on the poor and low-income earners. There are other realistic sources to fund it but those require a serious decision,” he went on to say.

Turning to the parliamentary electoral law, Hizbullah leader said asked political parties to make some concessions in order to agree on a new law for the upcoming parliamentary polls.

“We only want fair representation for all Lebanese components which falls in the interest of everyone,” he stated.

“Political parties must make some concessions because adamant stances will not help the country. No one underestimates the fate that Lebanon could reach if political parties fail to make up their mind.”

Taxes would not have been necessary if he did not destroy the economy of the state.

Yes flamethrower as did Maya Gemayel and François al-Hajj but they were both Zionists. Maya's dad was as you know the biggest Zionist so she was Zionist by proxy. François dared to go against the explicit edicts of Sayyed Hassan not to cross the red lines of the Nahr al-Bared camp and whoever dares to cross The Sayyed of The Resistance is obviously automatically a Zionist. We are on the same page, yes?

hopefully you will watch your 2 children do the same, flamethrower.

Missing allegedzionist 6 months

No flamethrower you did not call them Zionist but this still doesn't change the fact that they cooked to death, yes?

No point flamethrower, I was making an observation just like you did. In hindsight it was a pointless observation just like most of your comments.

This Thug and his militia are the main reason why we are under economical pressure.
Most of the Arab countries forbid their nationals to step foot in Lebanon because of Ebola.
This militia brings a climate of fear and instability in our country that is repulstive to investors... foreign, and domestic. He better keep his mouth shut instead of giving us Economical advice!
