Iran’s arm in Lebanon lectures on chastity, terrorism, and spying

At a time when the Lebanese-Gulf relations, especially those with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, are experiencing enough tension, as the latter is still waiting for a clear official position from Lebanon to draw its road map in the coming months. Either to escalate and head towards Security Council, or to calm down and gradually return relations to normal.

In front of all this, the Lebanese find themselves prisoners of a militia that is ready to burn the country with everything in it in order to tighten its grip more on the joints of the state, and secure its interests at the expense of the interests of the people at all costs.

Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah remained in his recent speech attacking the kingdom, sometimes accusing it of terrorism and others of coercion, describing its rulers as murderers who conspired against our country and our peoples and against the blood and honor of men and women in Lebanon, forgetting that the Lebanese have suffered enough from the tension of this relationship, which is considered the main artery for Lebanon’s recovery at this stage.

Who is the terrorist then? And what terrorism are you talking about? The terrorist is the one who brags with the Iranian money and weapons used against his people at home and the Arab countries abroad, and supports the Iranian expansion in the country and the region. Coercion is related to whoever takes the homeland as a hostage, and threatens it to implement plans that serve only the outside and under the name of false resistance.

On the other hand, and in an attempt to remedy any new deterioration among the Lebanese-Gulf relations, President Michel Aoun affirmed his keenness on Lebanon’s Arab and international relations, especially with the Gulf states, particularly Saudi Arabia, considering that this concern should be reciprocal because it is in the interest of Lebanon and the Gulf states alike.

As for Prime Minister Najib Mikati, he repudiated Nasrallah’s statements, stressing that they do not represent the position of the Lebanese government and the majority of the Lebanese, and concluded: “Have mercy on Lebanon and the Lebanese and stop the hateful political and sectarian strife.”

He added: “Have mercy on our Lebanon from the militia of your party, we’ve had enough, from Iran and its arm in Lebanon.”
