Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah expressed gratitude Friday for everyone who took part and held the responsibility of preserving security throughout Ashura, particularly the Security Forces and the Lebanese Army.
As his eminence joined crowds in Sayyed Al-Shuhadaa complex on Ashura Eve, he delivered a live speech in which he reiterated that “the consequent American Administrations along with some Western countries have a clear goal in the region, that is economic, political, and military domination.
He further pointed out that America’s goal was to subject all the peoples of the region under its administration by forcing them to accept the existence of Israel and by gaining control over the oil and gas in the region, or else war would be waged on them.”
Sayyed Nasrallah assured in his speech that the American domination project did not allow countries like Egypt, Pakistan, or others to become powerful, reassuring that “America is not ruled by Human Rights Organization, but by owners of large oil and arms companies…” in indication that all it wanted was to control the region and use it as their marketplace.
In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah considered that “Israel is the implementation tool in the Western domination project on our region, and this is why they are protecting it,” and stressed that “Israel is a real American tool and the Palestinian people, as well as the people of the region on top of which are the Lebanese who suffered from Israeli occupation and massacres carry the burdens of this American domination project.”
His eminence noted that everything America said about democracy, elections, and human rights were false claims which they sought to mislead with, and added that the worst dictatorships in the region, and the worst corrupt regimes which violated human rights and denounced the constitution and elections were supported by America.
In parallel, he said that “whenever America wanted to attack, it made up lies and promoted them,” referring here to the problem with Iran which “only wanted to be a free and independent state that owned its goods and preserved the dignity of its people… however, this was prohibited by the Americans, who started claiming that Iran was building a nuclear weapon, and forced the UN to put pressure on the Islamic Republic and impose sanctions on it.”
On the Syrian Crisis, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that the war was led by Washington using regional tools that support terrorism. He also considered that the war was not for the sake of democracy and reforms but for subjecting those who rebelled against America.
” After the so called “Arab Spring” America waged a new war, a war on everyone who refused to submit to the American domination,” he said.
On Iraq, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that “America and its allies offered money and weapons to ISIS in Iraq after the US was kicked out of the country to tell the Iraqi people that no one will protect you from ISIS and its freinds except America.”
As for Yemen, his eminence indicated that the Saudis have tried to transform the shape of the war into a sectarian one so that they would ignite the sectarian instincts of the Sunnis and urge mercenaries to fight in the battles instead of the “dull” people and army.
In conclusion, his eminence reassured that the wars in the region were not for the sake of reforms, democracy, human rights, or improving social levels, they were rather waged against everyone who refused to submit to the American project and toppled the “New Middle East” project in 2006.
In parallel, he noted that the same thing happened with Imam Hussein in Karbala, as he was asked to submit to the corrupt regime of Yazid or else he would be killed, robbed, and the women with him would be imprisoned… and this was what happened.
“We assure that we will follow the path of Imam Hussein and stand in the face of all these threats and say “We shall never be humiliated,” Sayyed Nasrallah added.
“In this battle, we shall not pull back. This is a battle which we believe in and will engage in and triumph. We shall never abandon such a battle , and whoever considers doing so would be leaving Imam Hussein in the middle of the night of the tenth of Muharram,” his eminence stressed.
