Nasrallah: Takfiri terrorism threat no less than Israeli danger

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah says danger of Takfiri terrorism is no less than the danger Israeli regime poses to the region.

During a televised speech on Sunday, Nasrallah said, “Israel remains our number one enemy” which threatens Lebanon’s security and sovereignty.

Nasrallha said internal divisions and the crisis next door, in Syria, have both made an opportunity for the enemies to crush the resistance.

However, he added, we hope to see the national will coming true, and have a strong country with a powerful army for facing the enemies.

He further said the danger of Takfiri terrorism is no less than the danger of Israel militarism in the region.

Nasrallah said there was no difference between al-Qaeda-linked Islamic States of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) and the al-Nusra Front, both operating in the war on Syria.

Hezbollah chief added, these groups share same beliefs and they don’t just hate outsiders, but they also turn on each other and fight against same believers as themselves.

“The Takfiri terrorism threatens the whole region as much as Israel does,” Nasrallah said.

He said the extremist groups are behind recent deadly bombings in Lebanon, and their attacks are not because what they claim about retaliating Hezbollah’s presence in Syria; Takfiris started attacking Lebanon before Hezbollah entered Syria, he added.

Nasrallah warned that Takfiris justify killing anyone who does not think like them, and are present in the form of different armed groups in all regional countries.

“If the Takfiris win, Syria will end up worse than Afghanistan ever war,” Nasrallah said, adding that countries supporting them are already worried about their faith.

Many countries have warned about the threat posed by extremist groups fighting in the Syria war which is going with no end in the sight, with the support of US and its Western and regional allies.
