White House passive reaction to Nasrallah’s real criticism
It’s time to mobilize a global response to the Hizballah: White House
In response to Hezbollah Secretary-General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah’s recent criticism , white House said in the statement on Tuesday “Sunday, October 8 marked the twentieth anniversary of the United States’ official designation of Hizballah as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Hizballah, originally formed in Lebanon, has terrorized the Middle East and the world since its inception thirty-five years ago.”
“Hizballah remains a threat to the United States and to the security of nations across the Middle East and beyond. It is time for more nations around the world to join the United States in exposing this murderous organization for what it is, in confronting its networks and its sponsors, and in mobilizing a global response to counter the threat it poses to the civilized world.”
“The international community must send an unequivocal and united message that Hizballah is not a legitimate political party. The safety and security of the American people and of people all around the world depends on our cooperation in confronting this threat.”
“Today, we renew our unwavering commitment to standing against Hizballah’s terrorist actions in the Middle East and around the world. We urge our partners to join our efforts to hold Hizballah accountable. Together, we can prevent this malicious terrorist organization from threatening the peace and security of the world.”
On Sunday Nasrallah said “there are some who are working on obstructing the battle against Daesh (ISIL/Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
“If Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group stays in these areas (Syria and Iraq), this means that Daesh will conduct battles again because it has nothing else but the killing and destruction.
And hence it will try to expand again. Daesh tried to control again the battle that these men were killed in and if it weren’t for the heroic confrontations that the men took, things would’ve taken a different course. Daesh is planning to return to all the areas that it was dragged from, [including Lebanon’s] Arsal. But Daesh is on the road to be eliminated.” Nasrallah added.
“But there are some who are working on obstructing the battle against Daesh. The Americans are the ones who are delaying the conclusion of the battle against Daesh. Here, some might say ‘how is that so?’”
“Yes, there are areas where the Americans are holding up the fight against Daesh, the U.S. air force sometimes prevents the Syrian Army and the resistance fighters from moving against Daesh.”
“What do you call this? Isn’t this a protection of Daesh? Why is that the U.S. is looking to extend Daesh’s time? And even in Iraq, the United States was looking to prolong Daesh’s presence for another 10-years. And this is what I said before [in a previous speech], that the American’s didn’t want Daesh to move from the outskirts of Lebanon.”
“The U.S. isn’t in a rush to remove Daesh. Daesh has a mission and that is to destroy Lebanon, Syria and this is the U.S.’s policy as well. In the Syrian desert, the forces are moving forward and Mayadin with be taken back and Al-Bukamal as well, then Iraq as well. The issue was a matter of time.” Nasrallah said.
