Egypt: Nasrallah Walking in Khamenei’s Footsteps

Egypt accused Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah of “walking in the footsteps of his mentor,” Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei.

“They all want to ignite the region,” Egyptian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Husam Zaki told the Saudi al-Watan daily about Nasrallah and Khamenei.

Nasrallah said Monday that the unrest in Egypt will transform the Middle East by pushing out a regime that has maintained peace with Israel.

Nasrallah predicted that whatever leadership emerges in Egypt after President Hosni Mubarak will move away from Israel, leaving the Jewish state more isolated.

"Be sure that regimes allied with the United States and Israel cannot stand long against the will of the people," he said.

Khamenei also told worshippers last Friday that widening unrest in the Arab world, including Egypt, is a sign of "Islamic awareness" in the region.

Zaki told al-Watan on Wednesday that the statements of Nasrallah and Khamenei aim at creating chaos in Egypt and the region.

“Nasrallah does not have the right to accuse Egypt of being a follower of Israel and the U.S. at a time when he works on shattering the unified front in Palestine and Lebanon to implement Iranian agendas,” Zaki said.
