Qassem: Lebanon Can't Be Strong without Hizbullah
Hizbullah Deputy Leader Sheikh Naim Qassem on Saturday said Hizbullah will always confront the “attempts of Israel and the United States to subordinate Lebanon” to its policies, affirming that Lebanon “can't be strong without Hizbullah.”
“Hizbullah is the pillar of modern Lebanon. Lebanon can't be strong and stable without this pillar which has become an integral part of building the institutions, drawing the future, maintaining independence and prevention of occupation,” said Qassem at a ceremony in Nabatieh.
“The United States is trying to subordinate Lebanon to its Israeli policy, but Hizbullah is an obstacle to Israel and America, which spares no effort to attack us and impose sanctions on us,” he added.
Qassem stressed that Hizbullah “confronts the occupation and interferes in the parliamentary elections in order to represent our people, but America intervenes in these elections in order to reduce the number of our deputies and blocs.”
