Shiite politician Ahmed al-Assaad on Wednesday accused Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri of becoming the "official spokesman for Hizbullah."

Assaad, who heads the Lebanese Belonging Movement, also accused Hizbullah of being the "new feudal lords" in predominantly Shiite rural regions of Lebanon.

"You are the feudal lords for banning opposition within the Shiite community," Assaad told Hizbullah.

"How come you are involved in reconciliation with other communities and you ban opposition within the Shiite community?" Assaad asked Hizbullah.

He also accused Hizbullah of adopting dual standards by criticizing money allegedly pumped into Lebanon by foreign powers to back the majority while the party receives Iranian funds and weapons.

"We are willing to share your funds, but not your weapons. Our words are our only weapons," he concluded.
