Leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah spoke live on Tuesday from Dahyeh on the occasion of
the Prophet’s birthday and the Islamic Unity Week.
Nasrallah kicked off his speech saying that "it is in the interests of both Muslims and Christians who live in the Middle
East to reach harmony and cooperation between Muslims."
He added that fanning accusations that Iran seeks to convert all Sunnis to Shias is
“a diabolic behavior” adding that these statements are ill-founded.
"It was never intended to convert Shias to Sunnis or Sunnis to Shias,
these statements are only illusion and aim at sparking incitement", he elaborated
Nasrallah also confirmed that his party has been been receiving "moral, political and material
support from Iran since 1982", bus said however that "Iran does not dictate us."
“Some people base their statements on positions attributed to us in the
early eighties and which suggest the establishment of an Islamic republic;
but I want to remind Christian leaderships who are speaking today about
co-existence and civil peace, I want to remind them how they used to
speak back then about a Christian country and federal division", he said.
The Hezbollah leader denied that his party is engaged in drug trade or money laundry, "we don’t have any business
abroad ", he confirmed.
Commenting on the Lebanese developments, Nasrallah said that "the cabinet will survive for political
and security stability is needed in the country ."
Nasrallah confirmed that Hezbollah’s political speech
has been clear for the past 20 years, adding that it serves the interest of Muslims,
Christians and the country.
As for the Syrian crisis, Nasrallah said that
“declarations that the Syrian regime is popularly
isolated are untrue. The regime persists and draws the support of the army”, confirming that there is an US-Western-Israeli-Arab decision to bring down
the Syrian regime.
