Hassan Nasrallah gives the perfect example of hypocrisy and misplaced arrogance

Hassan Nasrallah (HN) has said recently (yesterday) that Hizbullah (HA) is still present in the south of Lebanon, even on the border (with Israel).
Moreover, he said he does not regret the capture of the 2 Israeli soldiers and thanks "God" for helping them do it.
Nasrallah also launched his yet fiercest attack on the government (which his party is part of), and on PM Saniora himself, calling him an amercian tool, and accusing the march 14 coalition of helping Israel during the war.
He also accused the government of not being able neither to stop the war nor to protect Lebanon.
He carried on to attack the government's decision to receive the "killer" Blair, the britsh PM, saying the government had shown little regard for his group and those who died during the war by agreeing to meet with Blair.

Of course, after once again asserting that HA won the war (and not Lebanon), he called for the formation of a new national unity government to include Michel Aoun.


What can one answer to that ?... well, let's give it a shot, shall we !

Can HN really be serious about accusing the government of not being able to stop the war ?
I find this really bold, to say the least.
How can he wonder about the way to stop the war, while he unilaterally started it ??
Did he ask the government's permission to start the war, in the first place ?
What gives him the right now to blame the goverment on a war HE started, and may I add, illegally ?

Again, how can the government protect Lebanon, while HA fighters were hiding among civilians ? or while they were using the UN posts as shields, as many UNIFIL reports very clearly show ? The most famous report in that sense is maybe the one written by the canadian soldier, who died a few days later in an israeli airstrike.

HN didn't get into details on how the march 14 coalition was helping Israel during the war. So one cannot answer this point.
But I would say the ones who helped Israel do all this destruction to the country would be the party which crossed the internationally recognized borders and kidnapped 2 soldiers, giving Israel the perfect reason. Afterwards, I hardly think Israel was counting on march 14 support to carry on with the war.

And now for the best part, where HN accuses the government of showing little regard for his group and those who died during the war by agreeing to meet with Blair.
oh ?..
were HA fighters really concerned about the lives of the civilians they were hiding among ? shiites, sunnis, druze and christians.
Talking about respect, I cannot really recall HA showing any, for the many lebanese fallen victim to the syrian regime, nor to the assassination of Hariri and the 20 others who died with him in that attempt.

Were HA showing respect to the lebanese people when they staged a huge tribute to the syrian occupation of Lebanon, before the syrian troops left it ?
Were HA showing respect to their country, when they were holding big posters of the syrian president Bashar Al-Assad, during that same tribute, and chanting "our soul, our blood, are yours, Bashar !" ?
So how was that considerate to all the lebanese killed by the hands of the syrian occupation ?
how was it respectful to all the lebanese prisoners in the syrian jails, and whom Syria insist on denying their very existence ?
Shall we ask the mothers who are holding pictures of their imprisoned sons and daughters in syrian jails, how they felt when they saw HA paying warm tribute to Syria ?

Do we see people chanting "Our soul, our blood are yours, Blair, Bush, Chirac !" ?


As for Michel Aoun.. I think I wrote enough articles about this man. you can check out my previous posts. The only thing he shares with HN is his megalomania, and the fact that HN is using him.

All this in the name of national unity, for you see, this theme sells well in a country like Lebanon.

I think that HN just forgot that he is just a party leader. He obviously likes playing the role of national leader, which he is not.

I hear him, and I see only hypocrisy and misplaced arrogance.

just a remark

he said that his party is still present in south lebanon without saying if it is an armed presence or not.

Nasrallah is playing a game with the 14 of march nerves and it seems that he is succeeding to make them angry

"Moreover, he said he does not regret the capture of the 2 Israeli soldiers and thanks "God" for helping them do it."

Not exactly. He answered the question that if he had known HA wouldn't have done it. But there is another question: is this war, a war for 2 soldiers? his answer is no... So the accusation of the triggering event is meaningless to him. I give high credibility with this, Israel doesn't need a justification, it will do want it wants, when it wants.

"Nasrallah also launched his yet fiercest attack on the government ... American tool."

Yes, he said that if 14 March repeats that HA is an Iran tool, HA will treat them as American tools.
He also taught me interesting things about the 1/3 blocking system in the government vote. He said that 14March= Sunni Mafia.

"Of course, after once again asserting that HA won the war (and not Lebanon)"

No, he considers his "victory" as the victory of all those who supported him, and all honest people in the world.

"Again, how can the government protect Lebanon, while HA fighters were hiding among civilians ?."

The first source source of such allegation is from Israel. They are justifying their deliberate targeting of civilians.
And Isn't the attack on the Mirwahin convoy enough to show a Useless Needless force.
And the Kurds that were killed in Qav? was there any rocket launcher?
And do you think that HA leadership, their sons, their base don't care about the civilians. If they were so cynic, why did they stop? They were able to shoot missiles till the last minute!! And They were ready to die after all!!

"assassination of Hariri and the 20 others who died with him in that attempt."
The crowd that went in the streets after the 14 March (may be on 21), were from HA and i saw them on TV with Hariri posters.

He thanked Syria for their support in the fight against Israel. He said that he didn't take part in Civil War and that he doesn't take the responsibility of what, and with WHOM the Syrian Mafia made business.

It would not be fair to open the Syria file, if the Lebanese themselves didn't get rid of their warlords.

@sun,

> about the soldiers, he said if he had known he wouldn't have done it, in ANOTHER interview, just 2 weeks after the war. Not this time. This time, he was plain clear.

> "So the accusation of the triggering event is meaningless to him"
Oh but not to the other 6 billion people on earth.
He triggered the war.
When you sleep next to a wild beast, you do not punch him in his sleep, do you ?

> "Israel doesn't need a justification"
Oh yes it does. And HA just gave it to them !!
Are you really serious when you think that for instance, Israel could attack lebanon at any time without any provocation ? even if israel would want to do so, do you think it can afford it ? really ?

>About the government being sunni mafia, unless you argue that with some elements, I cannot answer you. Orelse I'll just say: No, it is not sunni mafia..

> "No, he considers his "victory" as the victory of all those who supported him, and all honest people in the world."

Read you own words again, and explain to me how this is a good thing.... or patriotic for that matter... or democratic.... or even CLOSE to pleasing or satisfying the Lebanese people......


> "The first source source of such allegation is from Israel."
Maybe the first source, but definitly not the only one !!
Didn't you read testimonies from the southerners themselves ? I will try to find some of the articles I read about that and post them.

As for the other part of your paragraph, I do not caution israel's targetting of civilians, I think you misunderstood me.

> "The crowd that went in the streets after the 14 March (may be on 21), were from HA and i saw them on TV with Hariri posters."

No, they were shiites.

> "He thanked Syria for their support in the fight against Israel."

Polite... the question is: HOW did he thank Syria, sun ? you missed totally the point !

> "It would not be fair to open the Syria file, if the Lebanese themselves didn't get rid of their warlords."

Fair is not the word.. although I agree with you that the lebanese political scene needs deep, very deep cleansing.

excellent post. And for the marwahhen comment from sun wukong, guess why marwahhen was hit. Because HA was hiding weapons in it without people knowing because one of their members who lived there helped HA store weapons.

Listen to the entire argument once again.

Also these 6billion people didn't lift a finger when Israel invaded Lebanon in the 70s and 80s, with all the suffering they caused. What are the entire world doing for Palestinians.
The Government program included "the right of the resistance to get back prisoners and land". When it is about someone s right, have 6billion people ageist him doesn't change anything... to the last prisoner, last inch of land, and for the water.

The free world should be ashamed that his allies are a bunch of warlords responsible of ethnic cleansing during the civil war in Lebanon. The civilised world backs a state in it's revenge operation. They say it's their right to get the hostages back. Well, where are they not from the 3 prisoners of HA, but from the 10 000 Palestinian prisoners?


>>"The crowd that went in the streets after the 14 March (may be on 21), were from HA and i saw them on TV with Hariri posters."
>>No, they were shiites.

I will be clear about that, on TV the Shiites protesters that day were holding Hariri posters.

Great post, Jean!

My thoughts are very much with Lebanon and the 14 March movement these days. I think the crucial phase for Lebanon's future was not the war, but is now.

Reading the daily Unifil-reports (you seem to read them too, I am not sure, if Kofi Annan has read them) makes me shiver a bit. They control the areas for IDF-presence but never mention Hezbollah. So I am grateful for your reporting.

Sun wukong, you are sceptical concerning this hiding behind civilians topic? Surely you remember Qana and I won't ask you for the fatalties you bear in mind.

Exactly 29 people were buried, the official number of confirmed victims. All of them allegedly civilians.

How comes, that reporters noticed at least two coffins of Hezbollah fighters? A Hezbollah official claimed they had been killed elsewhere. But: they were not additional coffins but among the confirmed number of casualties in this specific Qana house.

I think if they want to be the army of God then we should send them to meet him as soon as possible.

Yet when innocent people are being killed, that is a problem.
