RNA – Speaking at mourning ceremony in the Sayyid al-Shuhada Complex in Dahiyeh, Lebanon on the third night of Muharram, Hujjat al-Islam Na’im Qasim, Hezbollah’s Deputy Secretary-General said Lebanon was at the centre of a major crisis in the region, a crisis that is administered by the United States.
“If we examine the crises in the region, we will see the United States’ footprints,” he added.
The senior Hezbollah office argued that the United States uses Saudi Arabia to serve its interests in the region and added that some say that Saudi Arabia is not working for the American project in the region but this is not true.
“Saudi Arabia is just a small tool that the Americans use to achieve their project and the proof is that Saudi Arabia is getting weaker every day, its finances are running out and its economy is on the verge of collapse,” he said.
Hujjat al-Islam Qasim added that in order to achieve security peace and security for the Zionist regime and control over oil, wealth and human capabilities of Arab and Islamic countries, the United States has attacked several regional countries.
He pointed out that resistance is the only option and added if there was no resistance, we could not stand on our own feet. “Without the Islamic Resistance [Hezbollah], the freedom of Lebanon would not be possible and the expulsion of Takfiri forces from the country would not have been realized,” he said.
The Lebanese cleric said that the Islamic Resistance was able to gain victories, achieve freedom for Lebanon and is the reason for Hezbollah’s honour in the region and throughout the world.
“The Resistance has made accomplishments such that that the attempts to defeat Hezbollah by the major countries of the world have been frustrated and also, their aggression against Hezbollah’s principles, dignity and position have failed,” he said.
Hujjat al-Islam Qasim referred to the ongoing crisis over the shutdown of the Lebanese government and said, “Due to the equation of the Lebanese army, the Islamic Resistance and nation as well as efforts to accommodate Syrian refugees in the country, Lebanon has remained stable and did not fall to internal fighting and various forms of sedition.”
