Nasrallah urges voting against those 'conspiring against resistance, Lebanon future'

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Friday called on supporters to vote Sunday against “those conspiring against the resistance and its arms.”

“Voting on election day will be a message to all those conspiring against the resistance and its arms and against the future of the Lebanese,” Nasrallah said in a televised address during Hizbullah’s electoral rally in the Bekaa.

“Through their accusations, slurs and financial policies, some bet over the past years on turning the resistance's people against it,” Nasrallah said.

“Through its bombardment of your villages and towns, Israel wanted you to abandon the resistance and its arms, but today the bombardment is political, journalistic, economic and financial,” Nasrallah added.

“Today we are in a new political battle and those behind it are announcing that they are targeting the resistance. I ask the people of the Bekaa about their response against all those who are conspiring against the resistance and its arms,” Hizbullah’s leader urged.

Moreover, Nasrallah accused “some Christian parties” of supporting the jihadist groups that had been entrenched in the outskirts of the eastern border region.

“What were the stances of some other political forces, which today are talking about freedom, sovereignty and independence,” he asked.

“They prevented the Lebanese Army from confronting the takfiri groups, although it had the will to do so,” Nasrallah charged.

“These forces supported the armed groups -- Daesh and al-Nusra -- through all means,” he added.

Addressing Bekaa’s Christians, Nasrallah said: “Some Christian parties bet on the armed terrorist groups because they considered you to be collateral damage in the global war on Syria.”

Moreover, Nasrallah called for voting for Hizbullah and its weapons instead of supporting “those who offered weapons” to the eastern border armed groups that might have killed the region’s residents and “enslaved their women.”

Separately, Nasrallah said his party “will work in the new parliament and government on the file of restoring Lebanese-Syrian ties.”

Lashing out at ex-PM Fouad Saniora, who is backing an electoral list in Beirut and candidates in various regions, Hizbullah accused the former premier – without naming him -- of being responsible for “the disappearance of $11 billion and for the economic policies that led to the current crises.”

Yet “he's saying that the road to salvation begins with liberating the state from Hizbullah,” Nasrallah added.

Addressing those opposed to Hizbullah’s weapons, Nasrallah said: “The arms of the resistance didn't prevent anyone from reforming electricity and building dams and they weren't behind the tragic financial policies.”
