H.E. Sayyed Nasrallah: Honored to Be Enemies of Bush
Source: Al-Manar TV, 14-1-2008

Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said that it was an honor for Hizbullah to be considered by US President George W Bush as enemy. Sayyed Nasrallah was speaking during the 5th evening of Ashoura commemoration.

"I won't hide it. I felt honored when Bush spoke about Hizbullah and resistance movements because when the Pharaoh and the Great Satan accuse us and consider us enemies ... it is an honor for us," his eminence said. His comments followed remarks critical of Iran and Hizbullah made by Bush during his visit to the United Arab Emirates. Bush said from Abu Dhabi that "Iran is today the world's leading state sponsor of terror. It undermines Lebanese hopes for peace by arming and aiding the terrorist group Hizbullah."

The Hizbullah Chief said that since Bush could not say anything about Iran's nuclear program, the U.S. president accused Tehran of supporting "terrorism" in Lebanon, Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan. "Wherever there is resistance, Iran is accused of supporting resistance movements, and these movements, in Bush's point of view are terrorists," Sayyed Nasrallah said.

He accused Bush of supporting "the nation of terrorism, killing and wars," a reference to "Israel". "When a country like Iran or Syria support resistance movements that are defending their children, women, land, homes and holy places against the strongest country in the region, then this is a terrorist state that supports terrorism," he said.

"Who is trying to stand in the way of forming a national unity government in Lebanon? Is it Iran, Syria or Bush and his tools in Lebanon? I need to fair to some people in the loyalty bloc. I know that some of them, if they were left alone in peace by the US and other foreign powers, they would agree to form a national unity government because they have interests in putting an end to the deadlock. However, the United States is preventing this from happening because Washington considers the formation of a national unity government or holding early elections a blow to the US project, tutelage and interference in the political decision making in Lebanon," Sayyed Nasrallah added.

His eminence also said that being a tool in the hands of this "Satan" and this project was humiliating. "When Bush visited occupied Palestine he dispatched a representative to meet with the families of the captured "Israeli" soldiers in Palestine and Lebanon. He was only interested in those three soldiers. However those who have families, wives and children...those more than 11 thousand Arab prisoners in "Israeli" jails who are held under harsh circumstances...they are of no value to Bush," Sayyed Nasrallah said.
