Sayyed Nasrallah : Jordan Cannot Fight against ISIS

Tue Feb 17, 2015 09:33:41

Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah called on Monday for those who urge Hezbollah to withdraw from Syria to join the party in its fight against Takfiri terrorists in Syria, Iraq and everywhere as the terrorists set Mecca and Medina their main target.

The head of Hezbollah says the Lebanese resistance movement has been fighting the ISIS Takfiri group in Iraq.

“We may not have spoken about Iraq before, but we have a limited presence because of the sensitive phase that Iraq is going through,” Nasrallah said on Monday in a speech delivered in commemoration of Hezbollah’s martyrs, Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas al-Mousawi and Hajj Imad Moughhnieh, in Sayyed al-Shuhadaa Complex in Dahiyeh, located in the southern suburb of the Lebanese capital Beirut.

“I call for those who are urging us to withdraw from Syria to join us in our fight in Syria. Let's go to Iraq and everywhere to face off this threat because this is the right way to defend Lebanon,” He said.

As soon as the S.G. began his speech, yellow and white balloons were launched in the air from Al-Qaem Mosque in Beirut's southern suburb, Dahiyeh, in a civilized move called for by Hezbollah to substitute the bad habit of firing bullets in the air. “I call upon you, insisting that everybody has to categorically refrain from shooting in the air in view of the religious and the legal considerations,” His eminence said in a statement released on Sunday. In his Monday speech, Sayyed Nasrallah saluted supporters for their obedience which marked a precedent in the history of Lebanese leaders’ speeches.


Jordan's duplicity

Nasrallah further criticized Jordan’s double standards in the fight against terrorism, saying that all terrorist groups follow the same mentality.

"Jordan cannot fight ISIL in Iraq and support al-Nusra in Syria, terrorist groups are all faces of the same coin."

The al-Qaeda liked al-Nusra Front and the ISIL terrorist group have "the same essence, ideology, culture and methodology," the head of Hezbollah said, adding, "The only difference between them was over leadership, but they are essentially one and the same." 

"All the Takfiri currents must be fought, without distinction," he further noted.

Nasrallah’s remarks came as Jordan has vowed to intensify airstrikes against ISIL strongholds following the immolation of a Jordanian pilot held hostage by the terrorist group.

Several Arab countries, including Jordan, are taking part in the US-led military coalition that has purportedly been targeting ISIL positions in Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

This is while the same Arab countries have been accused of supporting the Takfiris in Syria and Iraq, where the ISIL terrorists have been wreaking havoc.

"How can some countries in the (Persian) Gulf take part in the (US-led) international coalition against Daesh, while giving money and weapons to the al-Nusra Front... How is that logical?" Nasrallah added.

Yemen’s Houthis rightful

The head of Hezbollah praised the Houthi movement in Yemen for their contribution to restrain the expansion of Takfiri groups in the region.

He further described the Yemen’s Shia Ansarullah movement  as “rightful”, “brave” and “wise”.

Over the past months, al-Qaeda militants have frequently carried out attacks on Yemen’s security forces. The militants have been also engaged in battles with Ansarullah.

In September 2014, Ansarullah fighters gained control of the capital city of Sana’a, following a four-day battle with army forces loyal to General Ali Mohsen al-Ahmar, the half-brother of the country’s former dictator, Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The Ansarullah revolutionaries say the Yemeni government has been incapable of properly running the affairs of the country and providing security.
