Bahraini Foreign Minister Slams Nasrallah as 'Terrorist'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is a "terrorist" who must be stopped, Bahrain's foreign minister said on Sunday.

"Terrorist Nasrallah has declared war on his nation," said Sheikh Khaled al-Khalifa on his Twitter account.

"Stopping him and rescuing Lebanon from his grip is a national and religious duty for all of us," he said.

The minister's remarks come a day after Nasrallah vowed that he will bring victory in the fight against Syrian rebels in the town of Qusayr.

Nasrallah had previously justified the organization’s involvement in Syria by saying they were defending border villages inhabited by Lebanese residents and holy sites in Damascus province.

But the offensive on the mostly-Sunni town of Qusayr forced the movement to change its argument.

"Syria is the rear guard of the resistance (Hizbullah's fight with Israel), its backbone, and the resistance cannot stay with its arms folded when its rear guard is exposed," Nasrallah said on Saturday.

"We are idiots if we do not act," he added.

Sunni-ruled Bahrain with a Shiite majority has repeatedly described Hizbullah as a “terrorist organization” and called for blacklisting it.

Bahrain has been battling a Shiite-led uprising that began in February 2011 and Hizbullah has voiced support for the protest movement. A total of 80 people have been killed since the protests erupted, according to the International Federation for Human Rights.

For someone talking about "rights", your avatar certainly suggest your firm belief in human rights. What a loser..........!

God bless the bahrainin FM for his wise and accurate descripcion of Nosrallah. Hizballa kills in Lebanon, syria, Israel, argentina, bulgaria, and Bahrain. Not to mention Iran where they crushed the revolt with the help of the pasdaran. Terrorist is a mild word. Genocical murderer would be even more appropriate!

This pathetic bum who is part of a criminal regime is not taken seriously by his own people, let alone any sane person. After all, he is the embodiment of the filth that Sunnis have become.

Apparently this filthy scum bag, aka Sunni, is taken seriously by about 7 thumb downer skunks, aka Sunnis. Look up Sunni in any modern dictionary and all the synonyms are variations of the word stink and filth. wa qad fassara al filthou bi al filthi

He is correct. Don't attack the messenger.

"Stopping him and rescuing Lebanon from his grip is a national and religious duty for all of us,"

Well said. Lebanon needs to be rescued definitely. It has sunk so deeply, due to Hezb's rise in power.

LOL, this man is calling others terrorists. The peaceful Bahraini revolution needs to be armed in order to overthrow the criminal, tyrannical Bahraini regime and so complete justice, freedom, and democracy can be achieved by the noble Bahraini protesters. Down with terrorism! Yes to freedom!

Qusayr has many holy sites don't you know? All the Hizb Allah fighters are all there on pilgrimage like the ones that were captured before so many Hizb Allah and Iranian pilgrims visiting Qusayr these days.

Sin verguenza
As for the Bahraini gt, whether Nassrallah is a terrorist or not ,it is our problem to deal with and not The Bahraini,so basically non of your business Mr Minister.

I agree with you brother.

It has taken the world 30 years to realize Hizbullah is really HizbShaitaoun....Iran, Syria and Hizbullah are the cause of all the problems in the Middle East and have been for 45 years, going back to when Hafez the Lion took over in Syria and then when Iran overthrew the Shah and then when HizbShaitaoun came into power in Lebanon in the early 80's. Anyone who does not believe Hassan Nasrallah is an agent of Iran, has their head in the sand....
