Nasrallah Hails Govt. 'Courage', Urges Opposition, Majority to Form Panel

W460

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Sunday lauded Prime Minister Hassan Diab and the ministers of his government for accepting their posts amid the dire economic and financial situations in the country.

“We must laud the government’s PM and ministers for their courage to shoulder responsibility, because we will face difficult and sensitive circumstances,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech commemorating Hizbullah’s slain leaders as well as Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and Iraqi paramilitary leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

“The situation is very difficult and I call for separating the financial and economic file from the political conflict in the country and leaving aside the settling of scores,” he urged.

Warning that those who “call for despair are committing national treason,” Nasrallah urged “awareness, bravery, sacrifice and the shunning of wrong calculations.”

He suggested forming “a panel bringing together the opposition and the majority because the economic and financial situation is in a dangerous state.”

“The priority is for seeking salvation because the situation is threatening everyone,” he said.

• “Help the government, because should it manage to stop the collapse, it would be offering a great service to all Lebanese and those who live in Lebanon,” Nasrallah urged, addressing rivals.

“Stop the incitement against the government and this is part of giving it a chance,” he said.

Reiterating that “this is not Hizbullah's government, although Hizbullah backs it and wants it to succeed,” Nasrallah warned that calling the government "Hizbullah's government" is harmful to “Lebanon's Arab and international ties.”

Attempt camouflage... kill a country and walk in its funeral. You and FPL may fool some people but not history books. Lebanon's economic march to the abyss started soon after Hizbollah-FPL understanding in 2006 quickly followed by Hizb war and Hizb takeover of Lebanon politics causing GNP growth to plummet from 6% to negative. The cost to the economy is in the hundred of billions that dwarf any cost due to corrupted politicians. By simply adding the 40 billion electricity deficit and the 60 billion exorbitant interests due to political instability... that alone explains 100% of our deficit. Sooner or later those who brought Lebanon plunge to the abyss will be brought to justice. We'll make sure of it.

بالفيديو: سليماني على الحدود وإصبعه نحو الجليل.. إنقسام وجدل لبناني!

انتشر على مواقع التواصل فيديو يوثق لحظة إزاحة الستار من قبل حزب الله عن نصب سليماني الذي قتل مطلع كانون الثاني الماضي في حرم مطار بغداد، ليظهر الأخير منتصباً ووراءه علم فلسطين، مشيراً بإصبعه إلى الأراضي المحتلة. وفي حين شارك الفيديو عدد من مؤيدي حزب الله فضلاً عن حسابات إيرانية، انتقدت شريحة واسعة من اللبنانيين الأمر، متسائلة كيف سيكون موقف الحزب إن نصبت بلدة أخرى مثلاً نصباً لقائد عسكري أميركي أو عربي أو غيره. كما تساءل البعض الآخر هل تنشر طهران نصباً لقائد عسكري لبناني؟.

Um--it is kizb's government. If it harms Lebanon, then it is on Kizb, since it is kizb that harms ties with all countries not name Syria and Iran.

so you are saying that anything that has to do with hezbollah is harmful to labanon's international image?...

aren't you here to defend lebanon? so why would it be harmful as you claim to want what's good for lebanon? aren't you proud that the gvt is a hezbollah gvt?

strange logic!

Missing peace 17 February 2020, 11:11

sorry but it IS a hezbollah gvt.. .why are they ashamed to call it that? aren't they the ones who claim to defend lebanon? having a gvt of their own isn't it the way to prove how valuable this party is to lebanon's welfare and economy?

thus hezbollah knows it is hampering the economical development of the country but still wants help from those he pretends to loathe! such a hypocrisy!

Isn't ironic when a Shia follower of the Iranian Hezbollah starts educating others on sovereignty? Apply sovereignty in Lebanon first where it's the only country in the world that has a parallel army and a parallel state.

عدما إتخذّت إيران من العراق ساحة حرب لتصفية حساباتها الإقليمية، والإنتقام لقائد فيلق القدس قاسم سليماني الذي قتل بغارة أميركية قرب مطار بغداد، دعا وزير الخارجية العراقي محمد علي الحكيم، اليوم الأحد، نظيره الإيراني محمد جواد ظريف، إلى احترام سيادة العراق ودعم جهود الاستقرار في المنطقة وذلك خلال لقاء جمع الوزيرين على هامش مؤتمر ميونخ للأمن في ألمانيا

Warning that those who “call for despair are committing national treason, as well as copyright infringement - we are the OG of sowing despair among the Lebanese!"
Nasrallah warned that calling the government "Hizbullah's government" is harmful to “Lebanon's Arab and international ties.” Because no self-respecting Arab could tolerate the scum that Hizb are.

Sheikh Hassan deserves the benefit of the doubt. This government needs international recognition and credibility, if the country is going to solve its dire economic woes. We must accept the reality fact of a healthy executive and an equally constructive opposition, as in most democracies.
