Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday his party does not want a president who would “stab the resistance in the back,” accusing the March 14 camp of seeking an extension of President Michel Suleiman's term through fielding a “confrontational candidate” to block the election of a “serious nominee.”

“We are before a very important and critical period that has started today,” said Nasrallah, a day after Suleiman left the Baabda Palace upon the end of his six-year tenure, which witnessed a war of words with Hizbullah in recent months over the so-called army-people-resistance equation.

“Some parties are used to launching accusations of obstruction but the issue cannot be tackled through rumors and accusations,” Nasrallah added in a televised speech marking the Resistance and Liberation Day, referring to allegations that the Hizbullah-led March 8 camp was behind impeding the election of a new president.

The Hizbullah leader called for dealing with the vacancy period “calmly and without any tension” even if it is a "grave situation, as some parties have said.”

“This must only prompt further calm and negotiations,” he said.

“We must all exert efforts to shorten this stage by electing a president as soon as possible instead of waiting for international and regional changes,” Nasrallah noted.

He pointed out that there is still “a real domestic, Lebanese chance to elect a strong president who can preserve stability and civil peace in the country and who enjoys real popularity. A president who can reassure all the parties so that Lebanon can overcome this difficult period.”

Nasrallah accused the rival camp of fielding a “confrontational candidate” – Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea -- to block the election of a "serious nominee” and seek the extension of Suleiman's term.

Geagea's nomination was officially endorsed by March 14 while Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun, an ally of Hizbullah, had stressed that he would only run in the race as a “consensual candidate.”

“According to my information, the other camp's real plan was not at all the election of a president before May 25, but rather the extension of the president's term. Let no one say that we had obstructed the election,” said Nasrallah.

“For the sake of this proposed extension, we were offered several concessions but I don't want to reveal the secrets at the moment,” he added, stressing that the other camp's alleged project “has failed.”

Nasrallah underlined that his party wants the election of a new president “as soon as possible.”

“But of course we don't want a term extension and we cannot tolerate it,” he added.

“We're not seeking a president who would protect the resistance in Lebanon, as the resistance in Lebanon is protecting the state, the country, the people, the sovereignty and the nation. We want a president who would not conspire against the resistance and who would not stab the resistance in the back. We want him to maintain his stance on the resistance,” said Nasrallah.

On the conflict in neighboring Syria, Hizbullah's leader said the regime and the "resistance axis" which includes his group will emerge victorious.

"Syria will triumph and the resistance axis will triumph," Nasrallah said.

Hizbullah has sent thousands of fighters into Syria to support President Bashar Assad's forces against rebels, saying they are defending an "axis of resistance" against extremist Islamist groups, Israel and the West.

Nasrallah's speech came two weeks ahead of a presidential vote in Syria that is widely expected to return Assad to power.

"Syria is advancing towards a presidential election that no amount of foreign intimidation or mockery by those who call themselves the 'Friends of Syria' can block or stop," he said.

The exiled opposition and its Western backers, who have held several international meetings under a “Friends of Syria” umbrella, have ridiculed the June 3 vote as a "farce."

On the conflict with Israel, Nasrallah stressed “the importance of the policy of deterrence against the enemy, which means Lebanon's possession of a strength that can deter the enemy.”

“Only strength can protect Lebanon's land, people, institutions, state, resources, water, oil, gas, entity, existence, future, dignity and sovereignty,” he stressed.

“We stress our commitment to the golden army-people-resistance equation, whether or not it was written in the cabinet's policy statement,” said Nasrallah.

Commenting on recent border incidents, Hizbullah's number one warned that “Israeli violations have recently increased on the international border with occupied Palestine, such as threats against citizens, abductions and attacks and shootings against Lebanese shepherds and farmers.”

“These things must be addressed. The normal approach is that the (Lebanese) army and the UNIFIL must intervene and address these issues and as long as the situation has not reached a dangerous level, the state can tackle things. But should things continue in this manner, we must address it,” Nasrallah said.

He warned Israel that “the resistance won't stand idly by if violations on the border reach an extent that requires our intervention.”

“We won't remain silent over any attack against our people along the international border,” vowed Nasrallah.

    Nasrallah: The reasons behind our stance are very clear and the scheme is becoming more and more evident. We have always said that there is a scheme seeking to fragment the region along ethnic and sectarian lines, but now it seems that this project is seeking to fragment the region by giving every armed group an "emirate", a province or a state.

    Nasrallah: Syria protected and is still protecting and supporting the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance movements, and it has paid the cost of this. This is the Syria that we're defending. Why can't we have the right to defend those who had supported us?

The normal approach is that the army and the UNIFIL must intervene and address these issues and as long as the situation has not reached a dangerous level, the state can tackle things. But should things continue in this manner, we must address it.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:29

    Nasrallah: There is a need to address the issues that remain pending in the Lebanese part of the conflict with Israel -- the Shebaa Farms, the Kfarshouba Hills, the Lebanese part of Ghajar, the issue of martyrs and resistance fighters and the territorial and maritime violations.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:27

    Nasrallah: In this issue of possessing a force of deterrence, one cannot say we have enough assets at a certain point, as we're speaking of Israel and one of the strongest armies in the world. Therefore we must improve our deterrence, regardless of those who are raising the issue of the resistance's arms.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:27

    Nasrallah: Despite everything happening in Syria, I stress to you that the resistance has maintained its force of deterrence and this is what the enemy acknowledges. It is working night and day to develop this force of deterrence and this is what is making the enemy anxious.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:23

    Nasrallah: This resistance was created by Islam and this resistance is Islamic. It's true that it is a Lebanese, national and Arab resistance, but this resistance is Islamic, and the experience it presented in 2000 was a sincere reflection of Islam and its Prophet Mohammed.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:19

    Nasrallah: It is important to have this faith and this resolve and to continue the struggle, because faith alone is not enough.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:18

    Nasrallah: We want to strengthen the culture of having hope in the future and confidence in victory and in our ability to confront the fiercest occupation armies ... This confidence is what led us into the era of victories, starting from the year 2000 to Israel's defeat in Gaza in September 2005, all the way to the 2006 defeat and the 2008 steadfastness of Gaza, until the 2012 confrontation.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:16

    Nasrallah: We hail and laud the great sacrifices that were offered by our people, security forces, national army and Arab and Palestinian factions. We stress that this achievement was the product of these major sacrifices.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:16

    Nasrallah: The victory cannot be attributed to a single party, faction or region, or even a country, as it belong to the entire nation, which is engaged in a war with the Zionist scheme. We have always strived to give this Day this broad dimension.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:15

    Nasrallah: We can describe the May 25, 2000 victory as the triumph that paved the ground for the era of victories.

  • 25 May 2014, 18:13

    Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in a televised speech marking Resistance and Liberation Day: There are highly sensitive issues that I don't want to tackle today out of keenness on a number of interests.

When Israel saw that they would have to hold south Lebanon with IDF forces, the cost was more than the benefit and they pulled out. The role of Hezbollah in this decision cannot be underplayed or ignored. The Hezbollah was on the ground and paying its people and those facts more than Hezbollah's military prowess are what caused the Israeli pull out in May 2000. So celebrate the victory of Hezbollah Shia over SLA Shia mercenaries. Happy Liberation Day, may we one day be freed of Israel's other mercenary force in Lebanon, the Hezbollah!

Sure, heard of them both, I wouldn't call it liberation if you free the two cities of SLA only to reoccuppy them by the proxie militia of Iran/Israel. Liberation is freeing the towns on behalf of the Lebanese people and their government.

And if you don't think that that the SLA wasn't mercenary, then you must don't believe that HA is mercenary either.

PS : last elections, 45% of people voted, less than half voted for M8 and Hezbollah. Of the 55% who did not vote, all of them are against the Hezbollah project or M14. This makes over 3/4 of the population against Hezbollah !

Thumb scorpyonn 26 May 2014, 08:59

Right on, Flamecatcher! We never asked for those Islamic zealots who are beholden to the troublemakers in Tehran to give us protection. On the contrary, their mere presence invites strife for our country. They legitimize their existence by aggravating the situation in order to create friction and then proclaim that they are here to protect us from that very conflict that they caused. The problem is that the ignorant fools who support them believe everything that they are told-- like sheep waiting to be slaughtered; obedient servants like Mystic, Southern, Flamethrower and some of those other clods who endorse these puppets of Tehran. In this case it is not ignorance-- it is sheer stupidity.

Great response to the Question Roro :-)

BTW, how do elections work in Australia do all sides pick a candidate and participate in the vote. Or does one side with no candidate decide that the opposition's candidate is not "serious" so it is their right to sabotage the vote for all of the country?

Roro, you and your friendly stooge were the ones talking about "the extension of president Suleiman's term"... Suleiman said no from the beginning and never wavered. You best get a new Crystal ball.

Missing politik_buro 25 May 2014, 22:32

Very true, and may I add that in the same logic, to some Lebanese people the Lebanese forces are also heroes who fought and lost their lives to save them, so that's neither here or there, it's a matter of perspective. Winston Churchill won the war for the allies in ww2 and lost the elections when the war is over.

So now we see that FPM was boycotting Parliament to insure that Sleiman did not have a term extension. Hezbollah didn't much like Sleiman door the latter part of his mandate. So, Aoun followed orders to allow the Hezbollah it's way, and this to the detriment of the Nation.

And this Nasrallah says he has this information the source of which he doesn't want to say now, but he must keep it secret. Like a parent who hides the Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve from his children so as to make a big surprise on chest as morning. This guy Nasrallah still sees himself as some paternalistic figure with secrets and surprises for the people. He and Aoun made for each other two delusional people.

Wolf the problem is that he could not possibly leave them out. Islamic Resistance is the basis of HA existence, that is their vision and their aim, the frontline of the Islamic Republic of Iran. As for the palestinian cause, this is the only thing that gives HA legitimacy in the Arab world of Sunnis. My humble opinion.

Missing wikileaked 26 May 2014, 00:57

If Nasrallah left out the "Palestinians" & "Islamic Resistance" from his speeches he wouldn't be Nasrallah, it's part and parcel of Hezbollah's doctrine without it they wouldn't be Hezbollah. It's like telling a Communist to tone down his anti capitalist rhetoric.

southern, I agree. This is very important to all ebony is it is but surely those in the South that suffered under Israeli occupation. The sooner that m14 can admit and respect that the sooner we will heal. At the same time the sooner that March 8th can admit and appreciate that many Christians and Sunni suffered under Syrian occupation the sooner we can heal. This Agreement is key to any future reconciliation.if we both agree on the above two statements being true, then we might as well continue to talk trash.

Will you keep on resisting? What if Israel finds agreement on our oil and gas wealth and does not threaten these? Will you keep resisting? How about those terrorists you invited to kill the Shiaa population? When they are defeated by your glorious resistance, will you keep resisting? What about that guy in maarab that threatens you stability if he is not president will you then keep resisting?

I know one thing ya Sayed Hassan, as long as you keep speaking, Lebanon too will not exist. As long as you consider yourself as the state, or its army, or its intelligence, Lebanon will fail in everything it wants to undertake. FYI Sayed Hassan, a president, any president owes allegiance to the state, to its constitution with its institutions and its laws, not something that is now well past its by date, that thing you still want to call a resistance, ya Sayed, what resistance bi Rabbak? Suleiman came into power to fill a vacuum, he left and the vacuum is still there, yet you're wondering what the heck happened? This country now needs a president, mind you, not a puppet but a president, Suleiman left head high, you've NOTHING on him, unlike you he has his words, whereas you, M8 and Aoun have no word, you're lost within a zillion fabrications.
