We are re­sist­ing a U.S. regime that hu­mil­i­ates every­one: Nas­ral­lah

Tehran Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Hezbol­lah Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral Sayyed Hasan Nas­ral­lah said Fri­day that “we are re­sist­ing a U.S. regime that hu­mil­i­ates every­one, even its friends and al­lies”.

Hezbol­lah Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Sayyed Hasan Nas­ral­lah de­liv­ered a speech on Fri­day dur­ing a cer­e­mony held af­ter three days of Um Imad’s – mother of mar­tyred re­sis­tance leader Hajj Imad mough­nieh – de­par­ture.

Um Imad (Ha­jje Amena Salameh) passed away on Mon­day at the age of 80 af­ter hav­ing spent a life of sac­ri­fice and pa­tience for the sake of Is­lam and Free­dom.

Sayyed Nas­ral­lah stressed on the sig­nif­i­cant and ac­tive role that Um Imad played in the path of re­sis­tance and Is­lam since she was a young girl in­di­cat­ing that “As Imam Khome­ini said ‘The role of the women is sim­i­lar to that of the Qu­ran, they are both en­ti­tled to build the hu­man be­ing’ and Um Imad as a mother played her role per­fectly”.

“Um Imad of­fered us the great leader Hajj Imad Mough­nieh, not just by bring­ing him to life but by rais­ing him to be­come who he is,” his em­i­nence added.

“Be­side her role as a mother, she was an es­sen­tial part in the es­tab­lish­ment of sev­eral NGOs since the be­gin­ning of the re­sis­tance… her house was more like a house for Hezbol­lah, specif­i­cally af­ter the mar­tyr­dom of Hajj Imad and while the re­sis­tance was pass­ing through a sen­si­tive pe­riod,” Sayyed Nas­ral­lah noted.

He added: “She was present at the houses of the mar­tyrs, the old and the new mar­tyrs, de­spite her age and health state, and she had an im­pact on every­one who met her… she had strong de­ter­mi­na­tion and firm­ness and aided us in our psy­cho­log­i­cal war.”

In this con­text, his em­i­nence stressed the spe­cial re­spect, ad­mi­ra­tion, and care that Hajj Imad had for his mother.

On an­other hand, Sayyed Nas­ral­lah com­mented on the speech U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump de­liv­ered a cou­ple of days ago in which he high­lighted the U.S. pro­tec­tion to the wealthy Arab states from “Iran which could take over the Per­sian Gulf in only 12 min­utes”, ac­cord­ing to Trump.

Sayyed Nas­ral­lah pointed out that un­der this pre­text, Trump has con­vinced the Mid­dle East­ern states to pay him large amounts of money in or­der to pre­serve their regimes.

“This re­minds us of Imam Khome­ini’s words, when he dubbed the U.S. as a thief, a regime of theft,” Sayyed Nas­ral­lah said, adding that “the for­mer U.S. pres­i­dents were also thieves but not this boldly and dis­re­spect­fully, as for the cur­rent pres­i­dent, he steals the Arabs’ for­tunes as he hu­mil­i­ates them.”

“We are re­sist­ing a regime that hu­mil­i­ates every­one, even its friends and al­lies,” Sayyed Nas­ral­lah con­sid­ered, as­sert­ing that “Iran in the eyes of Trump is a great and strong na­tion de­spite the siege im­posed on it, while all these Arab states buy­ing weapons from the U.S. to pro­tect them­selves can fall in only 12 min­utes.”

“Trump’s speech re­vealed that all these Arab and Is­lamic states are pay­ing Trump the Taxes of stay­ing in power,” Sayyed Nas­ral­lah said, ask­ing: “Who are you wa­ger­ing on? The U.S., that re­fused to give a visa for its ally the over­thrown Ira­nian Pres­i­dent Mo­ham­mad Reda Pahlavi to get can­cer treat­ment in its ter­ri­to­ries, de­spite all the for­tunes he spent for its sake while he was in power?”

“Let’s in­vest all this money in stud­ies for the sake of im­prov­ing and de­vel­op­ing our Arab world…” Sayyed Nas­ral­lah con­cluded.

Con­cern­ing Is­raeli claims about Hezbol­lah trans­fer­ring rock­ets and what he con­sid­ered “Ne­tanyahu’s psy­cho­log­i­cal war”, his em­i­nence re­as­sured that Hezbol­lah’s pol­icy on its weapons is si­lence no mat­ter what Is­raeli of­fi­cials claim.

He as­sured that Hezbol­lah will never re­spond to that and fall in the Is­raeli trap, stat­ing that “deny­ing Is­raeli claims would be a free fa­vor of­fered to Is­rael”.
