Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah addressing an iftar held by the Women's Committee of the Islamic Resistance Support Association: The resistance gained people's confidence and credibility in the Arab and Islamic worlds through its sacrifices and steadfastness and through its achievements and victories, after managing to change the equations of the conflict, regaining the land, captives, dignity and sovereignty, and creating an advanced position for Lebanon in the region. This resistance will remain a stiff thorn in the eye of the Zionists and in the eye of anyone seeking to harm Lebanon. over 6 years

The European Union's decision to blacklist Hizbullah's armed wing means it would share responsibility for any Israeli attack against Lebanon or the party, Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Wednesday.

"These (European) states have made themselves fully responsible for any Israeli attack on Lebanon or Lebanon's resistance (Hizbullah) or any target of the resistance," Nasrallah said in a televised speech during an iftar banquet organized by the Women's Committee of the Islamic Resistance Support Association.

The statement is Nasrallah's first since an EU decision on Monday to blacklist Hizbullah's military wing as a terror group.

"These states need to know... that they are giving legal cover to Israel for any attack on Lebanon, because Israel can now claim to be fighting terrorism and to be bombing terrorist targets," he said.

The decision to blacklist Hizbullah's armed wing "gives Israel a service for free," Nasrallah added.

"This decision does not affect our willingness. Its objective is to make us bow, to force us to step back and to be afraid.

"But I tell you (Europeans): all you will get is failure and disappointment," said Nasrallah.

“The resistance gained people's confidence and credibility in the Arab and Islamic worlds through its sacrifices and steadfastness and through its achievements and victories, after managing to change the equations of the conflict, regaining the land, captives, dignity and sovereignty, and creating an advanced position for Lebanon in the region,” Nasrallah boasted.

He vowed that “this resistance will remain a stiff thorn in the eye of the Zionists and in the eye of anyone seeking to harm Lebanon.”

Nasrallah clarified that “the resistance was and is still a subject of Lebanese, Arab, regional and international interest, whether positive or negative interest. A positive interest from those who believe in the resistance, pin their hopes on it and consider it to be a source of pride, and negative interest from those who antagonize it and consider it a source of threat for their occupation and hegemony.”

“Because the resistance has all this presence and influence, it has always been targeted with the aim of eliminating and crushing it, and it is being targeted through all the security, political, military and cultural means,” he said.

Commenting on Israeli remarks, Nasrallah said “the Israelis clearly said that the decision was issued because of their 'diplomatic efforts' and the truth is that (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu had insulted the Europeans.”

“All the proceedings prove that Israel and the U.S. exerted enormous pressure on the EU member states to take this decision and the thing does not need an analysis,” said Nasrallah.

“This decision is Israeli in form and content and it serves the interest of Israel,” he stressed.

Nasrallah noted that the discussions and proceedings of the European Union “indicate that Europe has surrendered to the American and Israeli will and that the 28 nations were not convinced of what they did, and the proof is that they had failed to reach a result whenever the issue was raised, as there is no evidence or proof or else the issue would not have taken years of indecisiveness.”

“Some EU member states considered the step to be illegal but they yielded to intimidation,” Nasrallah pointed out. “I did not feel for one moment that the European decision was sovereign as it was rather imposed on the Europeans,” he said.

“This stance is not consistent with their values or interests and it is clear that some party wanted to implicate the EU member states in a conflict that serves its interest, not those of the union,” Hizbullah's leader went on to say.

He wondered about the interest of the EU in “antagonizing a resistance movement that enjoys broad support in Lebanon and the Arab world.”

“Why haven't you designated Israel as a terrorist state although you acknowledge the Israel is occupying Arab land?” Nasrallah asked Europe.

“When a country contains resistance fighters who confronted and fought the occupation and suffered a lot of pains and wounds, and after thousands of them were put in prisons before they managed to give the land back to its people ... it is an insult when you tell them that they are terrorists,” he added.

“I tell everyone that this insult will not affect our morale,” Nasrallah said.

Addressing supporters he added: “To be insulted for defending your land and people, this is something of the consequences of this path.”

He stressed that “those who believe that the resistance which confronted the strongest army in the region for 33 days will be subjugated by this decision are either delusional or ignorant.”

Nasrallah called on EU member states to “correct their mistake because it will not lead to any result.”

Turning to the domestic Lebanese issues, Nasrallah said: “I tell the other camp in Lebanon that they won't be able to exploit the decision in their Lebanese political calculations or to isolate the party and form a cabinet without it.”

“A new cabinet must be formed in order to protect Lebanon from the storms,” Nasrallah added.

On Monday, the EU placed Hizbullah's military wing on its list of “terrorist organizations.”

In a statement, Hizbullah described the decision as a “hostile and unjust” step, saying it was “written by American hands and with Zionist ink.”

To get the required agreement of all 28 EU member states, European foreign ministers had to overcome reservations of some members that the move would further destabilize Lebanon, where Hizbullah plays a key role in politics.

Accordingly, EU political and economic ties with Lebanon will be fully maintained in a delicate balancing act.

Hizbullah's military wing was blamed for a deadly attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last year.

In March, a self-confessed Hizbullah operative was also convicted in Cyprus of plotting a similar attack.

Lebanon had asked the EU not to blacklist Hizbullah on the grounds it was an "essential component of Lebanese society."

Support for the EU sanctions against Hizbullah grew in recent weeks after the party openly declared it was sending fighters to back the Syrian regime.

The Bulgaria bombing and the Cyprus guilty verdict led to this blacklisting.

However what the EU leaders didn't mention, is that they know HA was behind the murder of Rafik Hariri, and dozens of others. They cannot mention this yet, because the trial has not yet taken place. Make no mistake, they have read the public STL reports, including the indictments, and the preliminary UN public reports as well.

If the intent is to insult the EU by accusing them to surrender to the Israeli/American will, Nasrallah fails. Ask yourself why this moment when for decades America and Israel has lobbied to get the EU to blacklist you. It is not a coincidence that their decision comes after you decided to avenge the death of Imad Moughnieh by attacking Israeli tourists in Europe and attempting the same in Cypress. Your involvement in Syria is to blame as well. You may hind behind your rhetoric but the facts are, it is your actions that led to this. If you did not care about this decision, you would not have addressed it to this length.

No amount of money, of sanctions, of bastards, can stop God's will. You idiots are bound to understand that, and you will with time! You think Hezballah men won the war they fought? with the little technology they have compared to you israeli brothers? Think twice, there's a superior force out there protecting them, a will protect them forever.
My fellow lebanese brothers, be ready to be deceived throughout your life concerning hezballah, they will forever be here, and will grow stronger and stronger with time.

FT i already answered your ridiculous reasoning. Jews have had the EU by the gonads through their banking sector for a long time and yet the EU refused many times to place HA on the terror list.
And to think the USA did not have anything on the EU prior to the snowden scandal is just plain immature.

this is just stupid the only reason they did this was because they are against the Al Qaeda based opposition If they were not against them they would have been honored and treated as heroes this is so ridiculous this biased behavior the EU claims Hizbullah is a terrorist group fine then explain to me why they have no problem arming and aiding the opposition in Syria when they have clearly shown that they have Al-Qaieda groups among them this is just sad I mean if you are against terrorism then call it both ways dont sit there and attack the Hizb simply because they are against a bunch of islamist extremists.

Thumb fero over 6 years

they maybe fighting people against bashar but those same people have kidnapped lebanses people and are opting to create an extreme islamist state in Syria. the fact is that anyone who is with bashar is seen as a terrorist but people fighting against him regardless of what they are are seen as freedom fighters all I am saying is to treat all the same way don't blast hizbullah because they support bashar and praise the al-Qaeida based groups even though they are terrorist group looking to create sectarian tensions

there is a drinking game people in college play in the US called Hi Bob--basically as you watch the Bob Newhart show, any time someone says "Hi Bob", you have a drink (one episode supposedly had it said over 250 times, so you see the results).

I am thinking you can play the same game with nasrallah or any other hizb iran official with the phrase 'resistance' or zionist. It would be a quick way to forget about the problems of today (although it would not be solving anything). Any takers?

That's a bit extreme hage. We cannot pin the blame on the Shia sect as a whole. They are doing what comes naturally, taking shelter under the wings of a powerful force. But nasrallah is forgetting that violence begets violence. Hate begets hate. The drums are pounding people. It seems that HA has no desire to spare us of a conflict that will engulf and destroy everyone. Including them. Those are the drums of war. It will come. Already arms are being imported. Allah yistor when the time does come. It will be devastating. But if and when it happens I hope that it will end the way our civil war SHOULD have ended. By confiscating all weapons. Then Lebanon will rise again.

You guys keep referring to H.A. They are doing whatever Iran, and to a certain extent Syria, tells them to do. Of course H.A. and Nasrallah need to go since neither act for Lebanese interests, and they can not stop at this point. H.A. is part of Iran. H.A. is deeply rooted in Persian agenda, and everything that Persian agenda has to do now and in future in the Middle East. You either allow Iran to be the dominant power supported my Russia in the Gulf and rest of Middle East, and Syria as the Victors, or the U.S. and the West with their strongest allies the Saudis/Gulf countries and Israelis. As to Lebanon, I don't know if either side will get rid of the Palestinians and their weapons from Lebanon. Also, we (the Lebanese collectively) don't need Islamic resistance or anything that has the do with Islam. Islam, Christianity, etc. belong in the privacy of your homes and Houses of God. It is personal to the individual, and keep it where it belongs.

Nasrallah: No Cabinet without Hizbullah, EU Made Itself Responsible for Any Israeli Attack on Lebanon............
Regarding "No Cabinet without HA", he fears success of a pure M-14 Cabinet, hence political suicide for him and M8.
Regarding the second part of his statement: Mr. Nasrallah, you are able to blackmail the Lebanese and trying to do the same to the EU. Do not worry Israel may attack Lebanon but not to eradicate you or your Hezb. Israel needs you as much as you need them.
