Hezbollah Says USA Still Great Satan
The Lebanese militant group Hezbollah (Party of Allah) staged a live announcement this morning at 6 am in Beirut, Lebanon. Hezbollah leader, Hasan Nasrallah, spoke by video screen to a large crowd.
Nasrallah became the leader of Hezbollah after the Israelis assassinated the previous leader, Musawi, in 1992. A New York Times article reported that an Arab politician called him as the "most powerful man in the Middle East" and the "only Arab leader who actually does what he says he’s going to do.”
Sheik Nasrallah wears a black turban, marking him as a sayyid, a cleric who can trace his lineage back to the Prophet Muhammad. “He has all the power; the government has no cards in its hand,” said Jad al-Akhaoui, the media adviser to a Lebanese cabinet minister.
Nasrallah gave a 90-minute impassioned speech, with barely concealed anger, in the context of the death toll in Gaza—9200 dead and 25,000 wounded so far, which includes almost 4000 children slaughtered in IDF airstrikes.
Main Takeaways From the Speech:
He insisted the Hamas operation was necessary and justified because they are not given any other options
He expressed sorrow for the suffering of the Palestinians and the Gaza people—whole world knows suffering of Palestinians over last 75 years
“The world will discover that most of those who say they were civilians killed by Hamas were killed by the Israeli army” He said they went mad and were full of rage, which resulted in them killing their own people.
"Absolute secrecy is what ensured the brilliant success of the October 7 operation, through the factor of surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Flood was decided 100% Palestinian, its implementation was 100% Palestinian, and its owners hid it from everyone.”
The Al-Aqsa flood revealed the weakness, weakness and frailty of the entity and that “Israel is weaker than a spider’s web.”
He praised Iraq attacks on US military bases
America is directly responsible
“We must realize today that America is completely responsible for the covert war in Gaza…Israel is just a tool…America is preventing a ceasefire…America is proving itself once again as the Great Satan…it is the primary party responsible…it must be held accountable…”
Arab and Islamic countries must sever relations with Israel and withdraw ambassadors and stop oil and gas to Israel
Resistance is necessary to achieve victory
All options are on the table and the resistance can choose any option
“We are ready for your fleets with which you threaten us. In the event of any regional war, your interests and soldiers will be the victim and the biggest loser. We have made 'preparations' for the American ships, and we ask America to remember their defeats in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.”
“Hezbollah is already waging a real war against Israel”
“Some want us to start a full scale war, and for them the actions on the northern border might be seen as limited, but they are definitely not. Even if you call our actions limited so far, it certainly will not stay what you call 'limited', and what is happening now is unprecedented. Hezbollah is waging a real war since October 8th, despite what some people say, and nobody can feel what is really going on except those who are in this battle.”
