Nasrallah's speech: The Explosive Bottom Line PDF Print E-mail
Written by Walid Phares

Here is a summary of the main points made by Secretary General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah this week in Beirut, after the invasion of (mostly Sunni) West Beirut, the attack against (mostly Druze) southern Mount Lebanon and after the declaration of Doha and the election of a new President for Lebanon. Nasrallah delivered his "victory speech" this week, outlining the new agenda of the Iranian funded organization in Lebanon. My full analysis will be published Monday. Following are twelve major assertions Nasrallah made. 

As carried live by Hezbollah-owned al Manar TV, and posted on its web site later, the speech by Sayyed Nasrallah says it clearly:
1. We have won this war in Lebanon
2. We have defeated the Democracy movement in this country and the Government it has produced
3. The United States and its allies knows that they cannot defeat us in Lebanon or in Iran by military means.
4. We showed Washington that it cannot move forward with its freedom and Democracy strategy, particularly from Lebanon.
5. We have now seized real power in this country (Lebanon) but we don't have to make it formal.
6. The Lebanese Army will never be used to disarm us. Its commander, our ally, is now the President of the Republic.
7. We will fight any international move or intervention to disarm us.
8. We will grow militarily in Lebanon with the backing of Iran, in parallel to our presence within the Lebanese Army.
9. We have offered a successful model of combat-confrontation against our enemies, thus we won't accept diplomatic solutions. 
10. Hamas and Islamic Jihad -using our model- will continue their Terror operations against Israel and the Palestinian Authority
11. We support the armed insurrection against the political process in Iraq.
12. We are proud of being under the Vilayet e-Faqih of Iran, in other words, Jihadi-Khomeinist.
Obviously, these assertions have not been well reported by the international media. Nasrallah said in his speech that "his wars are insuring real Peace." Probably many ears wants to hear the second part of his statement -Peace and stability- and certainly, the Oil-funded media-consulting reflecting the interests of the "axis," wants the West to hear that particular portion as well. We've seen this in Munich before.
