Mr. Nasrallah gave a press conference, as per Naharnet.
Below the screenshot, you will see Bambi’s reply to his speech, point by point 😊.
Nasrallah on economy: One should think of all those living on Lebanese soil, including refugees.
Mr. Nasrallah, if you mean the Syrian refugees, you should have thought about these innocent people before going to war in Syria behind the back of the Lebanese government. You should have thought about them before supporting Mr. Assad in his ethnic cleansing ☹.
If you meant the Palestinian refugees, please stop using them ☹.
Nasrallah: We need to rectify some issues to be on the right track. As for the issue of “turning east,” this does not mean turning against the West.
Mr. Nasrallah, can we just turn inward (self-reflection, self-interest, etc.), neither East nor West… but rather BOTH East and West + North and South and all the directions, as needed! Enough of alignment on Iran… and further East on China, if this is your second best dream… unless you are saying this, thinking it will scare the USA 😊.
Nasrallah: We are open to help from any country in the world except for Israel.
Do you really meant it Mr. Nasrallah: Would you collaborate with the United States 😊?
Nasrallah: No one is trying to put Lebanon in a certain axis.
Really, Mr. Nasrallah 😊 😊?
Nasrallah: We are not seeking to cut off “Western oxygen” from anyone in Lebanon.
You mean the opposite, of course.
Nasrallah: No one has called for changing Lebanon’s cultural face.
Sadly, the Western world is changing its cultural face in front of our eyes… and it looks more like a self-destructive process. Let’s hope Lebanon will know how to avoid collective stupidity, preserve its sanity, and dynamic culture, as a meeting point of the East & West!
Nasrallah: We won’t be an obstacle if America wants to help Lebanon.
Time will tell…
Nasrallah: We have not called for endorsing the Iranian model.
No need to call for it. You are living it and breathing it… and suffocating Lebanon with it ☹.
Nasrallah: If we said that China should come invest in Lebanon, this does not mean turning the country into a communist system.
Let’s hope China will not buy Lebanon as it did with Africa and with some famous brains here in North America…
Mr. Nasrallah, your fellow Lebanese people may be in a sinking boat right now… but they are too lucid and smart to embrace communism. The latter has proved itself as a failed model. It looks appealing on papers (in the abstract) ONLY. Lebanese people are entrepreneurs and creative people. With all due respect to the one communist party in Lebanon, your fellow citizens will kill communism before it kills their spirit and imagination 😊.
Nasrallah: We should not stick to only one path and we should not await the outcome of negotiations with the IMF without seeking other choices, seeing as these talks might take time or fail. The idea of turning East came from here.
Mr. Nasrallah, aren’t you tired of taking Lebanon hostage? At every milestone of its good days and bad days, of its troubles and potential solutions, you could have made the choice of Lebanon first. It is never too late, Mr. Nasrallah!
Nasrallah: The Americans waged a fierce campaign against the Chinese choice to scare the Lebanese and prevent them from cooperating with China.
Ha!Ha!Ha! 😊 or ☹.
Nasrallah: What we are going through today is the most dangerous threat that can face a people and a state, but we are capable as Lebanese state and people to turn the threat into a chance. We have an opportunity to carry out very important steps towards economic stability.
PLEASE leave Lebanon to the new generation of talented people… please stop the BS. Please!
Nasrallah: Iraq represents a great chance for Lebanon.
What does this mean Mr. Nasrallah? Is Iraq an example of a successful, prosperous state right now? They are in trouble like Lebanon, likely because of you or people like you… or because of their Iranian neighbour that wants to keep controlling them (and controlling the whole region).
Nasrallah: Openness towards Iraq, China, Iran and other countries gives hope to the Lebanese and sends a strong message to Americans and others that the country has other choices and courses.
Mr. Nasrallah, who died and made you the King of Lebanon? You do not have the monopoly of the countries that Lebanon wants to be friend with! You have the weapons, we get it, but you do not decide for the Lebanese people BY YOURSELF. Shame on those allied with you who keep giving you this cover ☹.
Nasrallah: We are a consumer country and today there is a chance to become a productive country and the State has a responsibility to revive the agricultural and industrial sectors.
OK, you make more sense here.
Nasrallah: We should wage “agricultural and industrial jihad and resistance.”
You are back to your delusion and silly (fake too) religious rhetoric. What does “agricultural and industrial jihad and resistance” mean, for God’s sake? Should Bambi laugh or cry here!?
Nasrallah: The U.S. State Department is playing an exposed role in Lebanon.
What do you mean Mr. Nasrallah 😊?
Nasrallah: The U.S. ambassador is acting like a military ruler and what business does she have in intervening in the financial appointments?
You are probably not saying the truth here Mr. Nasrallah, with all due respect. Please respect Ms. Shea.
Nasrallah: Colonial countries act this way and not friendly ones.
Ha!Ha!Ha! Nasrallah is using the term “colonial”, speaking the language of our radical left and some of the political class (we can wonder from where all this is coming now 😊). So, Mr. Nasrallah, when Iran colonizes us, including your own brain, it this that different from the other colonial countries you are referring to?
If you are thinking of France, please do not tarnish the beautiful relationship of France with Lebanon. It won’t work. People are MUCH smarter than you think.
Nasrallah: The U.S. ambassador has no right to say if the government should leave. She is also interfering in the nature of the next government and this is a blatant intervention.
No clue if this is the truth or not. However, it smells like a lie. The logic would be that it is you who does not want to let Lebanon reform or be accountable to the funders of the IMF, etc. You are imposing your will on this government, most likely.
Nasrallah: The U.S. ambassador is inciting the Lebanese against each other.
Ha!ha!ha! No one believes you, Mr. Nasrallah.
Nasrallah: Why didn’t some people defend Lebanese sovereignty like they defended media freedom?
Coming from a smart man, this seems like a silly statement… You have tried to silence Ambassador Dorothy Shea but it did not work. Thankfully, Lebanese people love their freedom and are attached to their sovereignty… or what is left of it.
Nasrallah has expressed pride in Judge Mohammed Mazeh’s ruling.
No clue what it’s all about. Probably this is the name of the Judge that ended up resigning after having ruled something not orthodox (shutting the freedom of expression).
Nasrallah: The U.S. is exploiting the accumulations of 40 years in Lebanon.
Ha!Ha!Ha! You are projecting… At the same time, of course, the US is thinking of its interests, as always (just like you!!).
Nasrallah: The U.S. is trying to weaken and isolate Hizbullah through starving the people and turning them against the resistance.
NO, it is not true. Bambi read about this act and listened to Lebanese experts in the media. The USA had the decency of giving Lebanon a one-year time to prepare itself for this Act. You are saying this in order to make the people turn against the US Caesar Act, which is against the Syrian dictatorship (war and corruption of Mr. Assad, his spouse, cousins, clan, etc.). The second wave may be likely your group… this is why you feel cornered now and this is why you are giving this speech at this time.
Nasrallah: This will not work and Hizbullah and the Resistance will not surrender.
No comment. Can you just keep the political part of your job and leave out the military part? Can you choose Lebanon FIRST? Is it too much to ask for?
Nasrallah to Americans: The policy of siege and sanctions you are following against Lebanon won’t weaken Hizbullah but rather your allies and influence.
No comment. Just to say that what impoverished the Lebanese people is YOUR corruption, you and your peers! Not just you, not just them… ALL of you, even if you may not be as bad as them in this corruption! “Kiloun Yaané Kiloun” = “All of them means all of them”!
