This echoes the comments of Hezbollah’s Iranian backers, who also want the world to see them as strong and stable, when really they are nothing of the sort. It should be no secret that Nasrallah lies; he has done the same thing for years on behalf of his benefactors.
Indeed, Nasrallah is a master of contradictions, able to express pride in the destruction of Lebanon by his terrorist group, while painting himself as regretful at the same time; able to weep crocodile tears over the plight of the Syrians, whilst his deputies call Syrian refugees a “time bomb”; able to call the Iranian Regime strong, whilst admitting that their overthrow by the people is likely.
Salman Aldosary, the former editor-in-chief of Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, wrote: “He practises what he personally condemns. On one hand, he claims that “political conflicts, insults and accusations do not achieve development and services in Lebanon.” But Nasrallah does not change. He is the great man of contradictions, who leads his country into unwanted political conflicts, cursing, throwing accusations and offending. So does what he says achieve development and services in Lebanon?!”
Nasrallah will do anything to appease his Iranian masters, including attacking Lebanon’s allies (i.e. lying about the Saudi intervention in Lebanon) and defending the malign actions of the Regime. These actions do not benefit Lebanon, only Iran. He’s even admitted that Iran is funding Hezbollah.
Even Iran itself provides evidence of its interference in the Middle East and Lebanon. In October 2017, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran was it was impossible to take decisive action in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, North Africa and the Gulf region, without Iran.
In response, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri tweeted: “Rouhani’s saying that no decision could be taken in Lebanon without Iran is rejected and returned to its owners.”
Nasrallah could not be seen to argue with his political and spiritual authority and so Hezbollah made the claim that Rouhani’s statements were “misunderstood”.
Simply, Nasrallah and Hezbollah are only interested in promoting the Iranian Regime’s view in order to get more funding from the mullahs, which comes at the expense of the Iranian people.
