24 May 2015, 19:05 Nasrallah: We call for unifying the fronts as it is unfeasible to fight in a segregated manner.
24 May 2015, 19:05 Nasrallah: In the face of this threat which is not less dangerous than the Israeli one, it would be delusional to partition the battle.
24 May 2015, 18:59 Nasrallah: We hold onto the army-people-resistance equation, which is now being implemented in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
24 May 2015, 18:58 Nasrallah on Arsal's outskirts: Our people in Baalbek and Hermel will not tolerate the presence of a single terrorist in the outskirts of Arsal and the Bekaa.
24 May 2015, 18:57 Nasrallah: The vast majority in Arsal are feeling the heavy burden of the militant groups and we are ready to stand by Arsal's people, but the state must shoulder its responsibility.
24 May 2015, 18:56 Nasrallah: Do not evade debate over the issue of Arsal in the cabinet sessions.
24 May 2015, 18:55 Nasrallah: You are saying that this is the responsibility of the state and the interior minister has said that the town of Arsal is occupied by the armed groups. Let the Lebanese state regain the town.
24 May 2015, 18:54 Nasrallah on Arsal: When the bomb attacks were tearing our flesh apart in Hermel, al-Nabi Othman and Dahiyeh, we were telling that Arsal's people are our people and that we don't tolerate any harm against them.

24 May 2015, 18:51 Nasrallah: We call on you to defend your land, sovereignty and people.
24 May 2015, 18:51 Nasrallah: If the regime and its allies win in Syria, we would represent the guarantee for all Lebanese, but if Daesh and al-Nusra win, who would guarantee your safety?
24 May 2015, 18:50 Nasrallah to March 14: You should fear the victory of Daesh, not the victory of the other camp.
24 May 2015, 18:49 Nasrallah: In Lebanon, March 14 has its calculations but the officials of the opposition Syrian coalition cannot represent a guarantee for you. They cannot even return to the Syrian regions that are under the control of Daesh and al-Nusra.
24 May 2015, 18:48 Nasrallah: We call on everyone in Lebanon and the region to shoulder their responsibilities in the face of the threat and to end their silence and neutrality.
24 May 2015, 18:47 Nasrallah to Lebanon's Christians: Who will protect your women from enslavement and your churches from destruction?
24 May 2015, 18:45 Nasrallah: I tell those betting on the U.S. anywhere in the world to observe what happened in Mosul and Ramadi. The Iraqis who did not wait for the Americans managed to recapture several regions.
24 May 2015, 18:44 Nasrallah: What has the U.S.-led coalition done? The number of their airstrikes throughout a year is much less than the number of Israel's raids on Lebanon in the July war or its raids on Gaza.
24 May 2015, 18:42 Nasrallah: It is unacceptable to wait and we must take the initiative and seek means to engage in the confrontation.
24 May 2015, 18:40 Nasrallah: The first victims of al-Nusra and the IS in Lebanon would be al-Mustaqbal movement and its leaders.
24 May 2015, 18:39 Nasrallah: Those who believe that their silence would protect them and their sect are delusional.
24 May 2015, 18:38 Nasrallah: Some people believe that their silence over Daesh and al-Nusra would protect them and some believe that they would be spared if they describe Daesh and al-Nusra as revolutionaries and freedom fighters.
24 May 2015, 18:37 Nasrallah: According to this diagnosis, everyone must feel threatened, because the threat is not only targeted against a certain sect or group.
24 May 2015, 18:36 Nasrallah: We are before a threat that does not tolerate the existence of others. All people in the region are facing this barbarous situation and only the lives of those who endorse their ideology and pledge allegiance to their "Caliph" would be spared.
24 May 2015, 18:35 Nasrallah: Although they are followers of the same ideology, the members of al-Nusra and Daesh are killing and beheading each other.
24 May 2015, 18:34 Nasrallah: How did Daesh act towards the Sunnis who did not cooperate with them? How did it act towards those who cooperated with it but refused to pledge allegiance? They were faced with massacres.
24 May 2015, 18:33 Nasrallah: We are before a danger that is unparalleled in history.
24 May 2015, 18:32 Nasrallah: Accordingly, we must understand the threat. Some are saying that there is no threat and some are standing aside while some consider these groups to be allies.
24 May 2015, 18:30 Nasrallah: The biggest manifestation of this scheme is Daesh, as we are before a scheme that is moving on the ground -- it is killing, abducting, slaughtering and destroying. Daesh is the headline of this period and it is not a small group. It is present in Syria and Iraq, in Sinai on Palestine's border, and in Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, North Africa and Nigeria, and it has recently showed its presence on the ground in Saudi Arabia's Qatif. Al-Nusra Front is similar to Daesh but it is confined to Syria, although it has been recently rebranded the Army of Conquest.
24 May 2015, 18:27 Nasrallah: History is repeating itself and the scheme that is threatening the region is this brutal takfiri scheme that we are witnessing now.
24 May 2015, 18:26 Nasrallah: Some Lebanese did not wait for the Arab League, the Security Council, the U.N., the U.S. or the West, they rather relied on their capabilities, men, heroes and friends in Iran and Syria and the resistance was launched.
24 May 2015, 18:24 Nasrallah: Had it not been for the liberation, where would have a large part of the Lebanese been?
24 May 2015, 18:20 Nasrallah: This victory was achieved by some of the Lebanese who believed in resistance. But this part of the Lebanese who achieved the victory wanted it to be for all Lebanese. From the very first day, the resistance believed that it was defending all Lebanese, and all the backstabbing and treason did not prevent it from dedicating its victory to all of Lebanon, the Arabs and the world.
