Qaida Chief Says Syria Exposed Hizbullah as Iran 'Tool'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri said that Hizbullah had been exposed as a 'tool of Iranian expansionism,' in an audio message posted online on Wednesday.

Zawahiri said that Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's public acknowledgement in late April that its fighters had intervened in neighboring Syria in support of President Bashar Assad, a key Tehran ally, "tore off the mask he always hid behind."

"The jihadist uprising in Muslim Syria has exposed the ugly face of Hasan Nasrallah, the head of the rejectionist (Shiite) Safavid (Iranian) plan for Syria," the al-Qaida leader said.

"It has been revealed to the Islamic Umma that he is just an instrument in the rejectionist Safavid plan that aims to spread the hegemony of the vali-e faqih," he said, referring to Iranian supreme leader Ayatollahi Ali Khamenei.

So say the Sanni crazies, both Muslim and Christian, in Lebanon, too. Who said crazies do not think alike?

hahahaha the new voice of israel is called al qaeda, isnt that something? and watch as the fan club here cheers and nods to the sickest group of murdering heretics the world has ever seen.

ps: startsky can you point out the iranian expansionsism your goat loving hero refers to? i mean in real terms, not in the pseudo-historico-philosophical hallucinations of a mentally deranged person.

Thumb _mowaten_ 31 July 2013, 18:02

i said no hallucinations anonymetex :)

Iraq: influence is expansionism? wow by that standard what country is not expansionist?
KSA: bahahahaha yea right, the saudi shias asking for rights in their country is expansionism??? man, serioulsy, wake up! if when people ask for their rights it is expansionism by a country only related because they share the same religion, what is it when that country sends fighters money and weapons? (that was a hint to saudi involvement in syria if you didnt get it, and no iran did nothing of the sort in saudi or else we would have all knows about it)
yemen: same as above, and no there was no attacks on saudi villages, where did you get that bs from? and oh, about HA assisting them, would you mind providing a single proof? or even just a non-biased source saying it?
emirates: that is a very old dispute, nothing new or expansionist (it would be like saying lebanon is expansionist when claiming shebaa farms)

Thumb _mowaten_ 31 July 2013, 18:07

bahrain: again, it's not enough to say it because it suits your views, there is no indication whatsoever that iran was involved or even "influenced" bahraini shias in demanding their rights. they are treated like second-rank citizens when they are 90% of the population, doesnt take any influencing to ask for rights, and they have done so peacefully despite the brutal crackdown
at this point i think you really need to review the definition of the word expansionism

Lebanon: LOL man you going to start that same debate everyday? not only does it have nothing to do with expansionism, but it's very simple: hariri shouldnt have tried to cut HA's vital communication network, and then cry when his militiamen got spanked.

Thumb _mowaten_ 31 July 2013, 18:07

Syria: again, that is not expansionism, iran has no boots on the ground, and HA only intervened in defense, the main act being to take out fanatical fighters who were launching rockets on the hermel and threatening to take over the bekaa. did they conquer any ground? did they occupy and annex anything? did they commit sectarian massacres and ethnical cleansing like the takfiris? NO.

Thumb _mowaten_ 31 July 2013, 18:56

if iraq allows iranian planes to fly over it is expansionism? yea, right. in that case i walked in the street yesterday must be expansionism on my behalf.

you dont sound like you want to be rational, you're saying things without trying to back them, and not caring whether they're proven or not. every time you imply or say iran is involved, the least of things if you want to be credible would be to back it with facts or sources (and no saying "go look it up on google" does not count)

I think you need to research your arguments before posting them here.
Iraq & Bahrain: Shia are the majority of the population. So I do not see where your argument lies, except that you mentioned a country. Iraq's Shia became stronger after the US invasion marginalized Sunnis.
Bahrain's 90% population are second degree citizens in their country, they do not need Iran/HA to feel oppressed and revolt. In fact, since judging by your arguments, you support support their revolt just as you would support the Syrian uprising. You should support it even more because in Syria, 20% of the population is involved in the revolt, whereas in Bahrain, 90.

KSA: The Shia minority live in the oil-rich east and have no rights. Having said that, I have not see HA/Iran involvement in uprising. Have you? Please share.

Yemen: is a lawless country. Have you been there? Please share if you have. HA is definitely not in Yemen. Bin Laden lived there for several years before moving to Afghanistan. Takfiri Sunnis and Shias do not get along.

UAE: the 2 islands dispute's root problem was when the Emirates ASKED Iran to occupy them so that the British do not. Now, they have strategic significance. If you know otherwise, please share.

Egypt: HA was assisting in a coup against Mubarak? hahahahahahaha where did you read/see/hear that?

no--because both groups hate freedom and don't care on how many lives they kill or destroy to achieve their goals.

Missing samiam 01 August 2013, 12:15

obviously since you guys are in love with Iran you don't like to live your lives--you like the government tell you what to do and how to think. Don't forget your hizb iran idols and allies are the same ones who shoot people at peaceful demonstrations, like the one at their idols iran if they disagree with them.

congrats on the indoctrination, minions.

I am amazed you didn't put zionism in your post, although you did use israel and wahhabism. your indoctrination must have been a success

Missing samiam 31 July 2013, 23:26

stop blaming zionism on everything--people have to take responsibility for their actions, not blaming others. Why do we not have 24/7 electricity--is that due to zionism, corruption or incompetence? You are crying wolf too much and trying to blame all our problems on zionism instead of taking responsibility and manning up and taking care of it.

Grow up and get an education.

Missing samiam 01 August 2013, 12:15

Why hasnt Phoenicia existed for 2000years? We've stopped speaking Aramaic on the 17th century and we were made to adopt Arabic by the Ottomans to ease religious tension between muslim and Christians, if your heritage means nothing to you thats your choice but my heritage makes me what I am today, the Aramaic speaking Christians who seeked refuge in kadisha valley to escape the romans and later the arabs and the Ottomans prosecution is the reason I am Here today Sir, its me and my Kin and will NEVER forget their pain vocation and Love.

This is one of the first times I have seen eye to eye with Zawahari. He's bang on.

It's too bad that FT and his allternate accounts can't acknowledge that simple point. Tell me how the Iranian regime isn't expansionist. Did you see how many Iranian flags and pictures of the ayatollah were posted in Beirut when Ahmedinijad visited?!

Hezbollah and al Qaida are two sides of the same coin. Both seek, through political and military means, to bring about their own respective visions of a future based on a religious book to the derogation of the rights off all those people who do not aspire to their versions of their religion. I do not speak only of non-Moslems. Many Moslems do not support the means adopted by Hezbollah and al Qaida regarding their radical reading of their religion and the violent means by which both groups have adopted to bring about their apocalyptic visions.
Do not condemn Hezbollah without condemning Zawahiri, or vice versa. Both need to be walked back to their respective regions centers and away from political power centers.

THE 2006 war PROVES NASRALLAH will be the new KING of Jeruslaem - The misguided Saudis think they are the vanguard of Sunni Islam by murdering innocent women and children in Syria. I will never support that - The Shia crescent has risen and is there to stay - NO ARAB REGIME WANTS to liberate Jerusalem - So we await those with the balls and will to do it.HAMAS are idiots.Their stance is purely reactionary - The Sunni mid East is totally castrated militarily and politically.
HAMAS had BETTER be careful whose feet it tramples on - Those feet might very well be connected to the BUTT they might have to kiss in future.Without Iran and Hizbollah, Hamas is lost.
