Opposition Source: Nasrallah Has Come to Realize Seriousness of the Current Stage

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Source in the opposition said on Monday that Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah started to realize the seriousness of the problems the nation is facing when he suggested a road-map for some pending issues, An Nahar daily reported.

Commenting on Sunday's speech of Nasrallah, the unnamed source said: “It seems that Nasrallah has come to realize the magnitude of the economic and social problems the nation is suffering from when he suggested a road-map to solve pending issues, mainly the new wage scale, the file of the Lebanese University, and has called for the formation of a national action group.”

In reference to the March 14 opposition's decision to boycott government activities, the source said Nasrallah's calls to form a national action group stem from a recognition that the government is inactive because a political group is not represented in the cabinet.

In his televised appearance on Sunday, Nasrallah said: “The government and the opposition must form a national action group that puts forward a program to confront this crisis before we reach economic collapse.”

The Hizbullah leader added that the state-run Lebanese University should receive exceptional support as it is the “university of the poor ... and the number of Lebanese under poverty line is increasing.”

Nasrallah urged the government to meet the long-standing demand of contract LU professors to become full-timers and to appoint them in order of seniority. He also said that the government should not set a limit of professors to be appointed without taking into consideration the actual needs of the institution.

The SCC, a coalition of private and public school teachers and public sector employees, has held several protests denouncing the cabinet's failure to refer the new wage scale to the parliament for vote.

The opposition source concluded asking Hizbullah, which leads the ruling majority, to exert serious efforts and look responsibly at the situation in Lebanon to salvage the nation.

The only time you will be better off when you get rid of all your leaders and replace them with clean and educated nobodies. You cannot build a country, when all of your leaders, none is excluded are bunch of thieves.

Credit to those words, a democracy without foreign interference is what Lebanon needs. We have Oil & Gas, why would we want any financial backing?

Thumb geha 17 December 2012, 19:42

I concur to that, provided all let go of their current leaders without exception.
they all proved to be irrelevant and thieves.

So are you daring to say that Lebanon should be at peace with Israel?
Just think how it could be of benefit to develop the natural gas fields together, and how about tourism!

FT i am actually surprised by your comment.. but pleasantly.. this is exactly the problem with Lebanon and why it would never rise. we have 2 groups that do the bidding of others.. and the Lebanese are forced to choose between these two evils.. granted there are parties within the two coalitions who genuinely want to improve the situation for the Lebanese..i am 100% with you that we need a strong third group to form from new blood (and even some of the two currently in power)

Wise statement FT, I agree with it. The issue is, every time "a strong third party" emerges, or at least tries to emerge, it gets blown up in the air. Very unfortunate.

They certainly don't hate them all.
Agreed, there are some Israelis who hate Arabs. However, there are Israelis who like Arabs and there are 1,200,000 Israelis who ARE Arabs, some of whom are Members of Parliament, Judges (including one on the Supreme Court), Army and Police officers, Ambassadors, Senior Doctors, Lawyers, etc. etc.
There are some Arabs who hate Israelis, there are even Arabs who like Israelis, and there are 1,200,000 Arabs who are Israelis.

the usually patriotic but this time deluded lebanese hallucinate about peace with genocidal zionist entity.

THERE WILL BE NO PEACE.

and that's because genocidal zionist entity will never leave multicultural country right to be in peace.
the genocidal maniacal ideology cannot watch other different people to live happily together. they will do anything to spoil it up. they will use spies, propaganda (including naharnet), killings, drugs and every other means to make trouble in lebanon.

lebanon will be in peace only after genocidal zionist entity is crushed like a worm that you are.

therefore, every talk about peace with genocidal zionist entity is treason.

mr. nasrallah, how do you expect lebanon to enjoy economic prosperity and attract foreign investment to help avoid the decline in its economy and the increase in poverty rates, when you stockpile on weapons and initiate a war with Israel every 4 - 5 years.

Thumb jabalamel 18 December 2012, 17:04

the filthy zionist scum trash and filth talks about our glorious resistance initiating war every 4-5 years while all lebanese know who started the war.

Thumb beiruti 17 December 2012, 15:56

Nasrallah has a bigger salvation project that I am sure he is more concerned with and that is to save his own ars. The Syrian Opposition is out of control. It has tanks, it has compromised the Syrian Regime's armories and has shoulder held MANPADS to shoot down Syrian fixed wing and helicopter gunships. The Syrian Regime does not command the skies and now Assad's time in Syria is very short with no clear path ahead other than that which the main body of Syrian fighters will set. Those fighers are funded and armed by Qatar and Saudi Arabia and are Sunni Fundamentalists.
When they get done in Syria, guess where they will go next?? That's right, they can't stand a Shia Fundamentalist group near by that is as armed and powerful as Hezbollah, so they will be coming, mark my words.

"Nasrallah Has Come to Realize Seriousness of the Current Stage"

More propaganda ... It is the boycott of parliament by March 14 that precludes solutions and escalates social and economic threats.

Look around the middle east, southern Europe. Social and economic crisis everywhere. March 14 plays games while Lebanon burns ...
