Hizbullah Supporters Demonstrate in Tyre, Warn U.S. and France

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Thousands of Hizbullah supporters protested Wednesday in the southern city of Tyre against a U.S.-made film mocking Islam and cartoons of Prophet Mohammed.

"America, America, you are the great satan!" and "Israel is the enemy of the Muslims!" chanted protesters as they poured onto the streets of Tyre.

Protesters carried posters saying: "We sacrifice ourselves for you, O messenger of God," "All our problems are from America," and "Muslims and Christians in defense of the prophet's dignity."

Wednesday's protest came after Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday called for such demonstrations across Lebanon following the spread of the anti-Islam film on Internet, saying it was "the worst attack ever on Islam."

Most demonstrators traveled to Tyre from nearby villages in south Lebanon.

Wednesday's protest was being held against the film, "Innocence of Muslims," and after a French weekly published cartoons of a naked Prophet Mohammed.

The movie triggered violent protests across the Muslim world, with 30 people killed in the unrest over the past week, including one who died in clashes with the security forces in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli.

Addressing the crowd in Tyre, Hizbullah executive bureau member Nabil Qaouq warned the U.S. and France against entering into a confrontation with the Muslim world.

"O Americans, it is better for you to take a step back, and not to get stuck in an all-out confrontation with the Islamic ummah (nation)," said Qaouq.

"France has also chosen to take a position of animosity against the ummah," he said. Both countries should "be aware of the Muslim ummah's rage, because it is capable of doing anything to defend the dignity of the messenger of God."

Sheeps will never understand what freedom of speech means. They should have been that angry when Syria bombarded our villages. Again, sheeps!

Absolutely correct......sheep! They are all frozen in the stone age and know nothing more than riot, fight, spread fear and hatred. They can't handle democracy!

Get over it for crying out loud!

LOL....peacefully? Your on crack. You call your jackass leader and guerrillas hijacking the country pointing guns on Lebanese peaceful? You call setting up tents like goat herders downtown instigating fights on an ongoing basis peaceful? Do you know the meaning of 'peaceful'? It's not part of your limited vocabulary....that's for sure.

Shut up and let the story die--these so called religious leaders want stories like this to continue so that they can garner false support.

Don't these 'protesters' have jobs--maybe these leaders should put their efforts into education instead of indoctrination if they really cared about the people--of course, that would defeat the purpose of them being 'shepards' leading the idiotic uneducated sheep.

Nassy did not get a rise in his approval with this in the country or the region. Same old thugs on the streets doing as they are told by their brainwashing master.

One positive note: "christians and moslems united to respect the prophet". As a christian, I cannot but agree with this slogan. It is a far cry from what happened in Tripoli or in Lybia...
HA is seeking to position itself as a christian-friendly moslem leader. It is allowing the army in the southern suburbs, it is allowing the arrest of mokdads... Interesting shift. Is it for 2013? or is it a genuine change in strategy?

I agree,
not too sure what his strategy is here...

I am sorry you're drinking the Kool-Aid...their strategy of deception is working on you.

That's what he is supposed to do regardless of whether he wants to position himself as a Christian-friendly leader or not.. allowing the army to go in to the southern suburbs, arrest of mokdad.. oh thanks!

P1 @ Dear Mr. Nasrallah, fake Muslim and leader of the Iranian mercenary terror group masquerading as Lebanese resistance, you say: “The United States must realize that broadcasting the entire film will have very dangerous repercussions in the world.” I say to you, you must realize that threatening the United States of America will have very dangerous repercussions on you and your followers. You and every fake Muslim who obey your message of hate and intolerance are nothing more than terrorist thugs who deserve to be ridiculed and ignored.

P2 @ Dear Mr. Nasrallah, You and every fake Muslim like you, will meet God one day and suffice it to say, you will find out the hard way that you were not entitled to kill in his name or take over the world and plunge it back into the dark ages so you can monopolize the world to your advantage. There are winners and losers in this world and the USA will always be a winner and fake bearded wanabe pretend Muslims who run around like savages destroying property because their feelings are hurt, will always be losers! Long live the USA, may it defeat fanaticism, indoctrination, rigid ideology and fake Muslims wherever they exist!

P3 @ Mr. Nasrallah, ya kafer and enemy of mankind: I take great comfort in knowing that I will see you exiled into jhanam in my lifetime, preferably hastened by a Tomahawk cruise missile :)

This is democracy -- the right to assemble and protest is part of the free speech package that often comes with democracy. Even though I disagree with the message of the protest, I respect that the protestors were peaceful and did not target people. I would want the right to do the same.
