27 March 2015, 23:13 Hariri responding to Nasrallah's speech: The Lebanese listened this evening to a "hatred storm" against Saudi Arabia and to insistence on giving Iran's interests the priority.
27 March 2015, 21:34 Nasrallah: Is the Saudi army stronger than the American army? Where is the American army in Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon? Is the Saudi army stronger than the Israeli army? Where is the Israeli army in the region? Any occupier army will be eventually defeated and an air campaign cannot achieve victory.
27 March 2015, 21:32 Nasrallah: The Yemeni people has the right to resist and it will emerge victorious.
27 March 2015, 21:28 Nasrallah: The real reason is that Saudi Arabia has lost its hegemony and bets in Yemen and lost hope in its takfiri groups. It has sensed that Yemen is now for its people and this war aims to regain hegemony over Yemen.
27 March 2015, 21:26 Nasrallah: The Islamic Republic is not imposing anything or interfering in Yemen and it respects this country, but you are pushing entire Yemen to embrace Iran, the same as you did with Iraq, Palestine and Syria.
27 March 2015, 21:25 Nasrallah: The Huthis' ties with Iran are very recent and they had relations in the past with Qatar. Even I did not have any contact with them, but Iran later acknowledged their rights without interfering in their decisions.
27 March 2015, 21:23 Nasrallah: Saudi Arabia has been interfering in everything in Yemen, but where is security and where is prosperity in Yemen? Why did you refuse Yemen's membership in the Gulf Cooperation Council? Didn't you deal with the Yemeni people in an arrogant and insulting manner? Didn't you voice support for the eradication of Huthis?
27 March 2015, 21:19 Nasrallah: Iran has never given us orders and we're an independent leadership. We sometimes seek Iran's expertise the same as Saudi Arabia deals with its friends in the world.
27 March 2015, 21:17 Nasrallah: Who is stoking the blaze in Syria other than the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?
27 March 2015, 21:14 Nasrallah: You are "lazy" towards Arabs and there is a country like Iran that is quick to act.
27 March 2015, 21:11 Nasrallah: Your Bandar (Prince Bandar bin Sultan) is the one who financed Daesh.
27 March 2015, 21:11 Nasrallah: The Saudi intelligence was behind sending the suicide bombers to Iraq and your latest crime against Iraq was Daesh, which you and your allies sent to topple Bashar Assad and al-Maliki's regime.
27 March 2015, 21:10 Nasrallah: What have you done for Iraq? ... When it appeared that the Iraqi people wanted to regain their position and confront occupation, you unleashed al-Qaida and all the takfiri groups against them.
27 March 2015, 21:06 Nasrallah: Iran rescued the Palestinians and offered them everything in its capacity.
27 March 2015, 21:05 Nasrallah: The Arab governments, specifically the Saudi regime, have abandoned the Palestinian people, leaving it a prey to Israel and the U.S.
27 March 2015, 21:04 Nasrallah: Iran is not occupying Lebanon and it is not imposing its choices on Lebanon.
27 March 2015, 21:00 Nasrallah: The Saudi regime deals with all people as followers who do not have an independent identity and they deal with all countries according to this. This thinking has led them to wrong stances and policies and accumulating failure.
27 March 2015, 20:59 Nasrallah: The Saudi regime does not acknowledge any popular movement or popular will.
27 March 2015, 20:58 Nasrallah: Where is your proof that Yemen is under Iran's occupation? Where are the Iranian military bases and armies in Yemen?
27 March 2015, 20:57 Nasrallah: The third excuse -- which is being must promoted by the Arab, Gulf and Saudi media outlets -- is that Yemen has become occupied by Iran. This is one of the biggest lies that are being circulated.
27 March 2015, 20:55 Nasrallah: When you voice support for a war, you become a partner in it.
27 March 2015, 20:54 Nasrallah: What did the Huthis do for you to accuse them of threatening your security?
27 March 2015, 20:54 Nasrallah: The brothers in Ansarullah were in contact with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the Gulf countries and there were negotiations. On the eve of King Abdullah's death there was a delegation holding negotiations and they went to political dialogue in Riyadh, but everything changed with the new Saudi rulers.
27 March 2015, 20:53 Nasrallah: Another excuse is that the new situation in Yemen was threatening the security of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf countries and the Red Sea. Is this true? Is there a proof that you can offer to peoples, scholars or muftis? This is neither a religious behavior nor it is humanitarian.
27 March 2015, 20:50 Nasrallah: Sanctions and calls could have preceded the decision to resort to the military option, so why did you rush to war, which should have been kept as the last remedy?
27 March 2015, 20:50 Nasrallah: You didn't assemble an international coalition for Egypt's Mubarak, so why Yemen?
27 March 2015, 20:48 Nasrallah on Firmness Storm campaign's declared justifications: There are three justifications that are being circulated -- the first is that there is an elected, legitimate president, although he resigned and retracted his resignation and his term ended according to the Gulf initiative. Is this alibi enough to wage a war against Yemen?
27 March 2015, 20:46 Nasrallah: You did not sense any threat coming from Israel, which has one of the biggest armies in the world. Israel borders your seas and oceans, but it was never an enemy for you or a threat.
27 March 2015, 20:45 Nasrallah: If the objective is to rescue the Yemeni people, why did you abandon the Palestinian people for decades? Why did you betray them? If the objective is to restore legitimacy in Yemen, why didn't you seek that for Palestine?
27 March 2015, 20:44 Nasrallah: The Palestinian people are still pleading to you and the houses of thousands of Gazans were destroyed. They are Sunni Muslims and they urged the Arab leaders who did not bat an eye. Where did you bring this resolve, nobility and firmness from?
27 March 2015, 20:42 Nasrallah on Yemen: For decades, the people of Palestine and the countries neighboring Israel did not feel any "Firmness Storm", not even a "firmness breeze."
27 March 2015, 20:40 Nasrallah: Iran will not and has not interfered in the presidential elections. It has nothing do with this issue and the party obstructing the elections is Saudi Arabia, specifically Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal.
27 March 2015, 20:37 Nasrallah: Our stance on the Special Tribunal for Lebanon is irreversible, that's why we won't comment on anything emanating from it.
27 March 2015, 20:36 Nasrallah: From the very beginning, there were political forces inside and outside al-Mustaqbal movement who rejected dialogue and tried to sabotage it, including the testimonies that were given before the tribunal. We do not care about these stances and we will carry on with this dialogue as long as it serves the national interest. We will bear all these provocations and we call on the supporters of the resistance not to heed these voices that are trying to stir strife.
27 March 2015, 20:35 Nasrallah on dialogue and STL: From the very beginning we chose dialogue for the sake of the country and its people. Strength is to sit together, engage in dialogue, defuse tensions and prevent the collapse of the country.
27 March 2015, 20:34 Nasrallah: We hope that this new political disagreement will not lead to renewed tensions in the country or in the cabinet.
27 March 2015, 20:33 Nasrallah: In the first hours after the beginning of the aggression, I heard Hariri commenting on the issue and we also have the right to express our opinion.
27 March 2015, 20:32 Nasrallah: Any Lebanese or Arab citizen has the right to take the stance they want on a major development such as the aggression against Yemen.
