Hezbollah chief leads ‘victory’ rally

Posted by QB on September 22, 2006

BEIRUT, Lebanon – Hezbollah’s leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah made his first public appearance since his group’s war with Israel began July 12, taking the stage Friday at a rally by hundreds of thousands of his supporters in Beirut’s bombed-out suburbs. He told the crowd that that he thanks God for what he called his group’s “victory” in a 34-day war with Israel.

Speaking to hundreds of thousands of flag-waving supporters in bombed-out southern Beirut, he said giving up Hezbollah’s weapons now “under this government … means leaving Lebanon exposed before Israel to kill and detain and bomb whoever they want, and clearly we will not accept that.”
“When we build a strong and just state that is capable of protecting the nation and the citizens, we will easily find an honorable solution to the resistance issue and its weapons,” the black-turbaned cleric said.

“Tears don’t protect anyone,” he said in a jab at Saniora, who wept several times in speeches during the Israeli offensive as he described the destruction and pleaded for international support.

Nasrallah also vowed not to allow U.N. peacekeepers and Lebanese troops to disarm Hezbollah militants in the south.

“No army in the world will be able to make us drop the weapons from our hands,” he said.

Hasan Nasrallah reached to the level of new popularity in Arab world street. I will not be surprised if Hezbollah gain the majority in next Lebanon election. All they have to do to gain the confidence of Sunni Lebanese which really can be done with intelligent campaign.
