Nasrallah calls for 'brave president who doesn't fear Americans'


Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday called for the election of “a brave president who is willing to sacrifice.”

“We want the election of a president, the formation of a government and the salvation of the country,” Nasrallah said in a televised address.

“We want a president who wouldn’t ‘fly from the Baabda Palace to the Mediterranean Sea’ if the Americans ‘blow on him,’” Nasrallah added.

“We want a brave president who is willing to sacrifice and does not care about the threats of the Americans. There are such examples and we must look for a government of this type and ministers of this type,” Hezbollah’s leader went on to say.

He also noted that the Lebanese can revive their country is there is “a will and a correct plan.”

Why can't we have a sovereign president that allows no arms outside army as in any respected country? All this because of a Veto from a criminal militia created, funded, armed and indoctrinated by Iran. Hizbollah is nothing but Iran's foreign legion occupying Lebanon and it is disgusting how our political mafia capitulated to Hizbollah’s blackmail and intimidation. If half the Shia voted for duo, time to divide Lebanon so we can recreate Lebanon with the other half of Shia and restore democracy, freedom and independence. Let Hizbollahstan mirror Iranian regime and become another big backward oppressive prison for its people. Hey, let Hizbollahstan have the Cana gas fields if we can get rid of this cancer so Lebanon and its children have a future outside hell! Divorce now!

What Nasrallah means by that is that he wants a President who will steer Lebanon away from the democratic Western World towards the axis of evil comprising Iran, Syria, Russia and their close allies (Venezuela, North Korea, Cuba...). Never will the Lebanese people bow to such a suicidal proposition. On the contrary, Lebanon urgently needs a President who will fully respect the Constitution, the sovereignty and independence from foreign influence and interference in its internal affairs.

The western countries you’re referring to aren’t democratic , they’re rotten corrupt to the core. Whether it’s the US or Canada, lobbyists make the policies, liberal countries are turning more and more like China whether it’s with mass surveillance and censorship. Just remember what Trudeau did to the truckers last year, freezing their bank accounts and listing anyone helping them as enemy of the State. The EU? Are you following the news with Panzieri and the Qatargate? He’s the boss and will evade prison time. Who elected Ursula Von DerLeyen? Charles Michel? It’s all a corrupt mafia serving there again personal or corporate interests, not the people.

I would settle for one that hates Iran.

I brave president wouldn’t bow to America and the West but he also wouldn’t bow to Iran. What Nasrallah wants is a submissive president to Iran’s foreign agenda.

I am sure that if you offered a lebanese a permanent residency in Iran or the USA, around 99% would choose the US (and thats including the shiah-population. Why on earth should we fear the americans more than the iranians who make a sport out of shooting the eyes of demonstrators?

'Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…’
