Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said that the “survival of the fittest” strategy prevails in this world, stressing that the real bet of the resistance should be on its own strength rather than waiting for solidarity from the international community.
During a ceremony held by Hezbollah on the occasion of the Day of the Wounded Resistance Fighter, Sayyed Nasrallah praised the resistance fighters who sustained injuries during battlefields, stressing that all victories achieved against the Israeli and the Takfiri enemies are because of their sacrifices.
His eminence said that thanks to the resistance’s sacrifices the Lebanese-Syrian borders are now safe and are no more under the Takfiri threat, especially following the recent evacuation of militants from Zabadani, Serghaya and Madaya.
On the Lebanese electoral law issue, Hezbollah S.G. warned that the country is on the brink of Abyss calling on all Lebanese parties to offer concessions in a bid to reach an agreement on a new vote law.
His eminence meanwhile, slammed Arabs over their inaction on the heroic hunger strike staged by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
Moreover, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “every moment in Syria today is a moment of victory,” hailing the steadfastness of the Syrian government against the Takfiri scheme.
“Our Fighters’ Sacrifices Made Victories”
Sayyed Nasrallah hailed sacrifices of the wounded resistance fighters, stressing that their injuries throughout the years made victories against the Zionist entity and the Takfiri enemy.
“Your sacrifices led to the liberation of our land and the release of our detainees,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the wounded fighters who were attending the ceremony in several Lebanese towns.
“Thanks to our fighters’ injuries the Lebanese borders, except for Arsal barrens near Western Qalamoun, are no more under the Takfiri threat, especially following the evacuation of militants from Madaya, Serghaya and Zabadani,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.
His eminence meanwhile, congratulated the labors on their day, warning that the unemployment is a dangerous crisis in Lebanon. In this context Sayyed Nasrallah called on the Lebanese government to deal with such issue, noting that this problem leads to many other social and economic crises.
“Lebanon on Brink of Abyss”
Talking about the local situation, Hezbollah S.G. warned that Lebanon is on brink of abyss, describing the electoral law issue as a “matter of life or death.”
Sayyed Nasrallah urged the Lebanese parties to hold their responsibilities and offer some concessions in order to agree on a new electoral law warning that the time is running out.
On the other hand, his eminence hit back at accusations that Hezbollah doesn’t want to strengthen the Christians in Lebanon by electing their own lawmakers.
“Hezbollah initially agreed on the Orthodox law,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that this law calls for each sect to elect its own lawmakers.
“Hezbollah doesn’t want to impose any electoral law on Lebanese parties,” the resistance leader stressed, noting that Hezbollah and Amal movement have no problem with any law and that they deal with the issue from national perspective rather than own interests.
“Palestinian Hunger Strike”
On the regional developments, Sayyed Nasrallah slammed Arab leaders and Arab league over their silence on the hunger strike staged by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.
His eminence voiced Hezbollah’s solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strike, saying the prisoners have been demanding their basic rights, wondering where are the Arab leaders and the Arab League to see the hunger strike.
Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Zionist entity is clinging to hope that the Palestinian hunger strikers will abandon their struggle as the time passes.
On the other hand, Sayyed Nasrallah lashed out at the international community over keeping silent on massacres committed against Yemeni and Syrian people, and oppression staged against Bahraini people.
“Despite UN’s announcement that millions have been dying in Yemen, and although UN knows that Saudi Arabia is the state which has been committing such crimes in Yemen, no one dares to say the truth.”
Sayyed Nasrallah also pointed out to policy of double standards towards Syria, saying that the western countries did not accept to probe the alleged Khan Sheikhoun chemical attack, but they made no actions on the massacre against Foua and Kefraya evacuees in Aleppo’s Rashidin district.
Talking on Bahrain, Sayyed Nasrallah said there have been thousands of people in Bahrain’s besieged town of Diraz to defend Ayatollah Sheikh Issa Qassem, but the world also keeps silent.
“Don’t expect that the international community will be just or fair. Strategies of ‘jungle law’ and ‘survival of the fittest’ prevail in our world.”
In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the real bet of the resistance is on its own strength, urging the resistance supporters not to wait solidarity from the international community.
“Rightfulness of Syria Engagement”
At the end of his speech, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out to the infighting taking place between Takfiri groups of ISIL and Nusra Front in Eastern Ghouta.
His eminence said that these militant groups are the sample which Saudi Arabia and Turkey wanted to present as an alternative to the Syrian government.
“Day after another we are more confident that our decision to engage in Syria was rightful,” Sayyed Nasrallah concluded.
