On Sunday, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah delivered a speech that was broadcasted by the Lebanon-based Al-Manar television network. During his speech, Nasrallah made several threats and warned of an escalation in violence along the Israeli-Lebanese border. Turing to the citizens of Israel, Nasrallah said: “The Netanyahu government is leading you to annihilation and destruction. Don’t let a stupid government take you on an adventure.”
“Netanyahu and his government don’t know whether they’ve started a war and how they will finish [one],” he continued. “They don’t have a real picture of reality. If they had one, they wouldn’t be heading toward this foolishness of war.”
“I call on all the non-Zionist Jews to separate themselves from the Zionists who are leading themselves to inevitable destruction,” Nasrallah added. “I call on all those who came to occupied Palestine to leave and return to the countries from which they came so that they aren’t used as fuel for the war that your stupid government will conduct.”
“Everyone who opposes Zionism is wrongly accused of anti-Semitism,” the leader of the terrorist group continued. “We’ve said from the beginning that our war is with the Zionist invaders of Palestine’s land and not with the Jews as a religion and the People of the Book. The Zionist movement took advantage of the Jews and Judaism in order to establish a colonial initiative under the auspices of the Britons 100 years ago and today, they are working for the Americans. The Jews in the world need to know that they are a British-American tool of war against the Arabs in the region.”
In addition, Nasrallah said that Washington’s actions are resulting in tragedies. “All of the governments in the region need to acknowledge their rivals and friends,” he said. “It’s forbidden to gamble with the Americans. [They should be] relying on themselves.”
Last night, Nasrallah said that his organization “cannot remain silent about the fact that the Israeli military is planting explosive devices in some of the villages along the border.”
