Nasrallah: 1701 Still Stands, Hizbullah Won't be Neutral if Iran Attacked

W300
Timeline
Nasrallah: We reject any war plans against the Iranian republic, because such a war will ignite the region and destroy countries and peoples. It will be a war against the entire axis of resistance… We reiterate our stance as part of the axis of resistance: we will not be neutral in the battle between right and wrong, in the battle between Hussein and Yazid. This supposed war will be the end of Israel and the American hegemony and presence in the region. Our imam, leader, master and Hussein in this era is Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei. He is the leader of the axis of resistance and Iran is the heart and main center of the axis. 7 days
Nasrallah: The same as we discussed the previous state budget we will discuss the 2020 budget. The principles that govern our stance will be the same. We refuse any new taxes on low-income citizens in any economic solutions in Lebanon. Instead of going to the pockets of the poor, let us search for the looted funds, and this should be the leading choice to address the economic situation. 7 days
Nasrallah on economic situation: The situation is not hopeless and there is a possibility to address it if there is the necessary seriousness. Not everyone is to blame for the financial crisis in Lebanon, which has its reasons, topped by corruption, the waste of funds and mismanagement. 7 days
Nasrallah: Lebanon has imposed itself on world powers and everyone contacted it after the latest Israeli attack, prior to the resistance’s response and during the resistance’s response. Lebanon must know that it is strong through the army-people-resistance equation and all countries in the world contacted our government to thwart us from retaliating to the Israeli aggression. 7 days
Nasrallah: Lebanon respects 1701 and Hizbullah is part of the government that respects this resolution but if Israel attacks, there will be no red lines at all. 7 days
Nasrallah: The government must defend the Lebanese and state institutions must not rush to execute the American desires in terms of sanctions. 7 days
Nasrallah: The resistance in Lebanon has been on the sanctions lists for years and this is not new. But when this aggression expands to target others in Lebanon – banks that have nothing to do with Hizbullah – this needs a different approach. We must reevaluate and study our choices well. 7 days
Nasrallah: In Lebanon, we reiterate our commitment to the natural, legitimate rights of the Palestinian people as honorable refugees on our land who are seeking to return to their land. 7 days
Nasrallah: The Palestinian stance is the main pillar in the confrontation against the U.S.-Israeli scheme. These people will protect their cause and holy sites. 7 days
Nasrallah: We start from Palestine, the central cause, to reiterate with its people that resistance is the only choice for our nation as a way for liberation. We renew our eternal commitment to Palestine’s cause and this stance costs us a lot but it is our commitment. 7 days

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said his threat to “break the red lines” in the confrontation with Israel does not stand for renouncing U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 war between his group and Israel.

“The Lebanese have foiled the Israeli attempt to change the rules of engagement that had been in place since 2006 and the Israeli army has turned into a Hollywoodic army because it has become crippled on the ground,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech marking the last day of the Shiite Ashoura commemorations.

“Lebanon respects 1701 and Hizbullah is part of the government that respects this resolution,” Nasrallah added.

Noting that Israel does not respect Resolution 1701, Nasrallah stressed that “should the Israelis attack Lebanon, the Lebanese have the right to defend their country.”

“We will respond in an appropriate and proportionate manner and there will no red lines at all,” Hizbullah’s leader warned.

Referring to the latest exchange of hostilities with Israel, Nasrallah said Lebanon has “imposed itself on world powers.”

“Everyone contacted it after the latest Israeli attack, prior to the resistance’s response and during the resistance’s response. Lebanon must know that it is strong through the army-people-resistance equation and all countries in the world contacted our government to thwart us from retaliating to the Israeli aggression,” he said.

Turning to the region, Nasrallah said: “We reject any war plans against the Iranian republic, because such a war will ignite the region and destroy countries and peoples. It will be a war against the entire axis of resistance.”

“We reiterate our stance as part of the axis of resistance: we will not be neutral in the battle between right and wrong, in the battle between Hussein and Yazid. This supposed war will be the end of Israel and the American hegemony and presence in the region,” Nasrallah said.

“Our imam, leader, master and Hussein in this era is Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei. He is the leader of the axis of resistance and Iran is the heart and main center of the axis,” he went on to say.

Nasrallah also said that a U.S. official visiting Beirut to mediate between Lebanon and Israel over a maritime border dispute, David Schenker, is a "friend of Israel." Nasrallah urged Lebanese officials to negotiate from a point of strength with him.

Hizbullah said Monday it shot down an Israeli drone over southern Lebanon shortly after it crossed from Israel, amid rising tensions along the Lebanese-Israeli border in recent weeks.

Last month, Nasrallah said his group would confront and shoot down any Israeli drones that enter Lebanese airspace.

Nasrallah spoke after authorities said one Israeli drone crashed in a Hizbullah stronghold in southern Beirut, landing on the roof of a building that houses Hizbullah's media office, and another exploded and crashed in a plot behind the building, causing material damage.

Last week, Israel and Hizbullah traded fire for the first time in years. Hizbullah launched anti-tank missiles at an Israeli armored vehicle near the border and said in a statement that those inside it were killed and wounded. Israel denied any casualties and retaliated with artillery fire into southern Lebanon.

Hizbullah said the missile attack was retaliation for an Israeli airstrike near Damascus last month that killed two of its members. Israel said the attack thwarted an Iranian-orchestrated drone attack squad. Shortly after the airstrike, Hizbullah said two Israeli attack drones crash-landed in Beirut.

Israel and Hizbyllah fought a monthlong war in 2006. Israel considers the group its most immediate threat.

an iranian terrorist: plain and simple.

Great picture, he looks like an unwashed shia terrorist (Huthi), and that's closer to his true character than the religious uniform he dishonored and desecrated for decades.

As to his speech: nice cartload of BS.

The day this evil iranian sectarian terrorist is brutally and violently murdered is the day we celebrate our true independence.

Unfortunately, there is the saying "better the devil you know than the one you don't know".
Who knows what/who will come after Nasrallah.

Palestinians can go to hell as far as I am concerned. No one else than us has paid such a high price for these people. They have to take care of themselves and leave us in peace. I don't want my country in a constant state of war because of Palestinians. Their fight. Not ours!

Bless anyone person, entity, organization, brigade or country that inflicts extreme pain and unbearable suffering, death, torture, and destruction upon the iranian sectarian terrorist militia, its leaders, members, sponsors, supporters or followers wherever they may be.

Nassrallah: "Instead of going to the pockets of the poor, let us search for the looted funds, and this should be the leading choice to address the economic situation."

Start by closing the 150 illegal border crossings under your terror militia's control which deprive the treasury of hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.
