Nasrallah The Fireman

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah stubbed out the sparks of a civil war kindled during the February 14 demonstration by ex-warlords and current pyromaniacs Walid Jumblat and Samir Geagea.
In a very calm and collected manner, Nasrallah, Hezbollah's leader, replied today to some of Tuesday's fiery speeches denigrating the resistance, emphasizing national unity and national dialogue.
He asked whether the insults hurled on the day of the commemoration of Rafic Hariri were a wise approach to build national unity or to prepare for the Beirut One donors conference or were rather a precursor to civil war.
In a direct reply to Jumblat, Nasrallah stressed the "holiness" of the resistance and he criticized Samir Geagea, the leader of the Lebanese Forces an ex-ally of Israel, who said to hundred of thousands of people on Tuesday: "the sea is in front of you and the enemy is behind you".
Nasrallah also said that once the government is strong enough to protect Lebanon from Israel's daily affront to its sovereignty then the resistance would seriously think about the use of its weapons.
And he repeatedly said that Hezbollah is not in an alliance with either Syria or Iran and that its only concern is the protection of Lebanon.
In another note the Beirut Stock Exchange lost more than 10 percent of its value as a direct result of the February 14 demonstration.

More stupidity and over-simplification from this blogger...just one thing, coz I could spend a day refuting, one thing, BSE is not down because of demonstration...its down coz its up 45% since Jan 1st, oil and therefore Gulf markets are down hard...Not to mention that Nasrallah is NOT a calming factor in Lebanese politics and no matter what he blabbers, he is a front for Syrian and Iranian ambitions..

Huh? have you just landed on earth? You're sounding more and more like Joshua Landis, and believe me that's the furthest thing from a compliment!

Hezballah along with his crony Aoun, are the only destabilizing factors in Lebanon.

And if you couldn't see that in his speech, he threatened the rest of the Lebanese with civil war, then I'm afraid there is no hope in saving you.

See the thing Hezb doesn't want to admint, and what you don't seem to understand; it is the government who decides if it can face Israel, and if they need a milicia or paramilitary (call it however you want) to defend the country. It's not a self declared resistance that can say the government can't do it we'll help them. Today i can go form a "resisance" to resist the invaders of Achrafieh and say when the governement will be ready to protect its citizens in achrafieh and will be ready to affront the barbarian hordes i will give back my weapons. There's a principle all arab dictators and leaders count on. They think that because they say something it becomes true... Nasrallah ain't an exception.

"protect Lebanon from Israel's daily affront to its sovereignty"

How about having a peace treaty to protect Lebanon's sovereignty? You never hear about Jordanian shephards getting killed on the Israeli border. You never hear about Israeli jets overflying the Sinai.

Israel works for its own interest, but it isn't an existential threat to Lebanon.

I totally agree with Kais. Let us not forget that Nasrallah was the first politician who tried to import the cartoon crisis to Lebanon, and now he talks about being a stabilizing force.

The soft spoken crap that comes out of Nasrallah's mounth is BS. He acts as if he owns Lebanon and has all the answers. He is the only one talking about civil war....
