Bfnews: During the inauguration ceremony of Sayyeda Zeinab (AS) complex in Southern Suburbs of the Lebanese capital of Beirut Friday, Sayyed Nasrallah stated that “the situation in Syria requires a political solution which Hezbollah was calling for since the first day of the crisis.
"UN envoy Kofi Annan’s act in Syria was not based on the Arab League initiative, which means that the option of foreign military intervention in Syria was clearly no longer an issue,” his eminence said.
Sayyed Nasrallah added that only a political solution could resolve the crisis in Syria.
“The political solution is based on two things: dialogue between the regime and the opposition, and reforms.”
“Anything else is neither in the interest of Syria and its people nor in the interest of Palestine. It would be only in Israel’s interest and in the interests of those who want to push the region towards total chaos, which is sought by the Americans,” he warned.
His eminence noted that "there is a decline in the international situation affected the by the status on ground, where the armed opposition is unable to bring down the regime."
“The bid to overthrow the Syrian regime militarily has failed and has significant costs,” he said.
His eminence also ruled out any “foreign military intervention” in the country, saying the U.S. is “weaker than being able” to engage in a military action against Syria given that “they were defeated in Iraq and are facing a dire situation in Afghanistan.”
Moving to the revolution in Bahrain, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that “it is normal for Syria to receive regional and international attention, where three summits were held yesterday while the world’s high-influence countries sat on the table, but it is abnormal and rather condemned that the issue of Bahrain is being overlooked.”
“What’s happening in Bahrain is a national tragedy, as there are hundreds of people who are demonstrating and people who are demanding a peaceful solution are being killed every day,” Nasrallah said, accusing the Bahraini regime of “hiring mercenaries” and firing “poisonous gases” against “homes, women and children.”
“This is a type of premeditated murder (with lethal gas bombs),” Sayyed Nasrallah said, adding "this ignorance increases the injustice, but will not affect the morale and determination of the Bahraini people who suffer this situation since the start of their revolutiond."
On Land Day, his eminence noted that it is one of Palestine’s and al-Quds (Jerusalem) days.
“This commemoration has a great significance for it expresses the adherence to Right, Cause, Land and Holy Sites.”
Sayyed Nasrallah believed that Israel is mocking the Arab world and Arab summits with its tendency to seize more pieces of West Bank territory, noting that Palestine remained the first priority due to many factors, particularly the factor of resistance “which kept this cause alive till today.”
“All attempts to root out the Palestinian cause had been failed, despite spending millions of dollars for that purpose,” he stressed, even though "occupiers and conspires want the Palestinian people and our nation to forget Palestine and to give up to this de facto."
His eminence made clear that “the nation does not shoulder responsibility even though it is able to achieve victories. It has significant potential to easily retrieve Palestine and al-Quds.”
Sayyed Nasrallah expressed believes that the future of our region is the future of resistance ideology.
Turning to local affairs, Hezbollah Secretary General said that the government must “work night and day” and in a “serious” manner even if its survival depended on the political factors and the developments in Syria, calling on some parties to “reevaluate” their calculations “given that the general course of things in Syria has become clear.”
“It is true that there are some details and problems and that the security situation needs some time (to return to normalcy) in Syria … but the inclination is clear and thus there’s no need for futile bets,” his eminence said during his televised speech.
“This reevaluation would leave an impact on the internal situations in Lebanon,” he added.
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that “the government’s survival is in the interest of the country’s security and stability,” calling on the government to be “productive.”
He noted that the rival camp’s “bets on the government’s failure are futile,” adding that “politics topple and make governments in Lebanon.”
“This government must make achievements and must work night and day, even if there is a vote of confidence tomorrow,” he went on to say.
“Politically speaking, the government will survive and that is not because Hezbollah wants it to survive. This is untrue. The political factors and the events in Syria are going in that direction and this is what indicates that the government will stay,” Sayyed Nasrallah added.
His eminence called on the government to shoulder its responsibilities to tackle people’s livelihood issues, concerning “their security, dignity, finances and health.”
