Nasrallah Says Main Responsibility Falls on Saudi in Anti-IS Fight

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Monday that Saudi Arabia must shoulder a bigger responsibility in the fight against the extremist ideology of the Islamic State group, noting that military efforts alone cannot eradicate the jihadist organization.

“Nowadays, the prime responsibility in the Islamic world for stopping the proliferation of this ideology falls on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech.

“It is not enough to create an international coalition and bring the armies of the world to fight ISIL (Islamic State). My remarks are addressed to everyone: close the schools that are educating the followers of this ISIL ideology … and stop labeling people as polytheists for the most trivial reasons,” Nasrallah added.

In June, the IS declared an "Islamic caliphate" straddling vast swathes of Iraq and Syria, ordering Muslims worldwide to pledge allegiance to their chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The U.S. has formed a coalition of Western and Arab allies to battle IS, which has been accused of widespread atrocities in Iraq and Syria, including mass executions, beheadings, rape, torture and selling women and children into slavery.

How about Iran and how it got rid of the moderate shah? How was the economy of Iran during the shah days versus today?
The world is a safer place with Israel and Iran off the map.

Hassan Nasrallah, one of the main reason for the rise of Sunni Islam extremism (and terrorism) is to counter the imperialist politic of the Iranian Islamic revolution that has succeeded since over 30 years to create loyal political and armed forces in many arabic countries.

lol, yes, nasrallah also created alqaeda, the taliban, wahhabism, salafism, takfirism and zionizm.

I remind people that the Syrian opposition was about to Crush ISIL early in the year before it was saved by the Assad regime and its allies. So the enabler of ISIL is the last one to talk.

looooooool at your articles peace, yes i've heard that propaganda before, but statements by "Al-Saud, a Syrian dissident with the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces" do not really constitute anything credible.
hahahah what a goof you are.

Thumb _mowaten_ 28 October 2014, 12:15

your articles are hilarious, they discredit themselves in their first paragraphs:

"The Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad has funded and co-operated with al-Qaeda in a complex double game even as the terrorists fight Damascus, according to new allegations by Western intelligence agencies, rebels and al-Qaeda defectors."

hahahahha "Western intelligence agencies, rebels and al-Qaeda defectors" claims

in the mean time, NATO is letting the oil ISIS is stealing pass through NATO member turkey's territory, and the EU has voted a law that allows them to buy that stolen oil. you're such a joke peace, i sometimes feel sorry for you

sure mooowaten you would deny everything... even the fact that for DECADES the syrian regime harboured islamists groups to use when it suited their interests... but all of a sudden they would not use nusra for their benefits!
all of a sudden when their regime is at stake they would not use the same old recipes the regime used for decades ! LOL

In Yemen - you have a militia supported by Iran taking large part of the country and imposing its will through force. Where does this remind me of??? Anyone?

Missing 28 October 2014, 01:18

And 'lebanonarmy occasionally': Has it crossed your mind that large part of the Lebanese army is from that 'Shitty' Sunni community and if they decide to defect, there would not be Lebanon. Indeed they are fighting these gunmen and they are dying. In Nahr Al Bared, the majority of army dead were from the shitty community. Ask yourself what would personnel from the army belonging to a specific sect do if the army fights Hezbollah? Why do you think the army did not do anything when the Hezb and allied militia invaded Beirut in Mount Lebanon? Let me spare you: They knew if they did, large part of the army will defect to the Hezb.

Thumb Machia 28 October 2014, 05:08

I totally agree with Nasrallah on Wahhabism. Hopefully the counter-reaction will be more social freedoms in Iran.

The fault lies on those whom supported the takfiri insurgency in Syria, many naive people, thought it to be legitimate. Now the same takfiris hit Lebanon, and you still blame Hezbollah. Those takfiris were in Syria long before Hezbollah intervened, so get your facts clear.

Thumb Elemental 28 October 2014, 18:28

The irony? Most can say the same about you.

Thumb Mystic 28 October 2014, 18:46

I think you should follow politics a little better, before commenting in here Elemental. Better yet, you should stick to "Rock and Roll"

A caliphate has never been the Resistance goal, quite the opposite they reject any caliphate before the last Imam appears.

Second, if they really wanted a caliphate, they could've made one already.

Da3ish on the other hand, wants to force Islam on others, and force them to convert or die.

Hezbollah doesn't do this, and everyone in Lebanon knows this.

Missing peace 28 October 2014, 19:05

hezbollah just hijacked lebanese chiism to align it with iran...
1/ they pledged allegiance to the islamic revolution not to lebanon... but they do not want a caliphate true.
2/ they named a secretary general for life when before he used to be elected...
3/ they put aside every cleric that wanted a lebanese chiism and forced people to follow the iranians when chiism allows you to adapt to the country you are in... wilayat elfakih....

so yes hezbollah do not want a caliphate, they are smarter than that: they just imposed their power over the chiites and over Lebanon with their weapons.... but in depth = they are the same fanatics, chia style!

Thumb Mystic 28 October 2014, 19:04

Naharnet deleted my comment for "unknown reasons", again let me repeat. The M14 leaders were backing the takfiri insurgency in Syria, long before Hezbollah had any say on the matter, yet you still blame Hezbollah. The Al Nusra Al Qaeda and Da3ish, were killing civilians long before this joke of US/Arab coalition intervened.

These takfiri groups were ravaging in Syria, long before Hezbollah intervened in May 2013. Back then, we didn't hear anyone complain here in Lebanon, it was after the takfiris started killing Lebanese soldiers, that you started to wake up. Better late than never, same goes for you Naharnet authors.

Thumb megahabib 28 October 2014, 19:56

Also remember the Dinniyeh battles. Was Hezbollah also to blame for those?
