|As his eminence appeared on Wednesday on al-Manar TV to refute rumors over his health condition, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah warned that there have been sides who seek sectarian sedition in Lebanon.
Sayyed Nasrallah said that there are clerics among the Sunni sect, who have been adopting an escalating rhetoric, wondering if “their incitement is based on realities or illusions.”
Hezbollah S.G.said that there is an armed campaign aimed to displace people who live in villages located in the Syrian border, stressing that these people have been defending themselves.
Sayyed Nasrallah also urged the government to convene in order to discuss the ranks and salaries system and to settle this issue.
“SOME SEEK SECTARIAN SEDITION AMONG MUSLIMS”
“There are sides that are driving sectarian strife, especially between Sunnites and Shiites, in an accelerated manner,” Sayyed Nasralla addressed his people on al-Manar TV
“There are MPs and clerics among the Sunni sect who have been adopting an escalating rhetoric,” his eminence said, wondering: “This incitement is based on realities or illusions?”
“If it’s based on realities let us sit together and talk about it in order to solve the problem. But is it is based on illusions, let us know who has been seeking sedition in our country.”
Sayyed Nasrallah also stressed that “we must not sit and simply watch who are seeking strife, and this needs wise people who intervene in a bid to reconcile between the sides who are at odds.”
Asking whether the residing in Sidon needs permission from one side or another, Syyed Nasrallah said: “we were engaged in Sidon’s liberation… and after the Israeli withdrawal from the city we have apartments, houses, mosques and complexes there since 20 or 25 years.”
“We didn’t have an office near a Mosque, however this mosque was built near the office,” Sayyed Nasrallah said referring to Bilal Bin Rabah Mosque.
Assir threatened last week that a Hezbollah office near his mosque should be evacuated by Hezbollah members. However Sayyed Nsrallah stressed that this office was established even before Bilal Bin Rabah Moasque was built.
“ORTHODOX PROPOSAL OR SINGLE DISTRICT WITH PROPRTIONAL SYSTEM”
His eminence said that this proposal is the most appropriate electoral law since it goes beyond the negative points of the Orthodox Gathering proposal.
He also said that “there are foreign and local powers that have been driving for delaying the elections.
Responding to claims that Hezbollah favors postponing elections, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed “it’s of Hezbollah’s interest to hold the elections on time.”
However, he said that some sides prefer to delay the elections, as they bet on the fall of the Syrian regime.
ARMED CAMPAIGN AGAINST LEBANESE BORDER VILLAGES
“These campaigns are aimed at displacing the people of these villages. These people hold weapons to defend themselves, and their land.”
In this context, Hezbollah S.G. said “it is their right to defend themselves,” but stressed that they should not attack any one.
Syrian armed opposition has occupied some Shiite villages in Syria, as it displaced its people whose some of them are now seeking shelter in the region of Bekaa and Hermel.”
ISSUES OF RANKS AND SALARIES, KIDNAPPING
Meanwhile, his eminence tackled the kidnapping Lebanon has been witnessing since weeks ago, considering this issue a dangerous one.
He called for a national cooperation to confront this phenomenon, stressing that the state, security body and the judicial authority should hold their responsibilities in this problem.
