Muslims must stand against normalization with Israel: Hezbollah leader
The secretary-general of Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah says all Muslims are duty-bound to oppose the normalization of relations with the Israeli regime.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks in a televised speech on Friday in a ceremony held on the occasion of the birthday anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Beirut’s southern suburb of Dahiyeh.
Nasrallah congratulated the celebration attendees and all Muslims on the auspicious ceremony, and noted that Prophet Muhammad managed to establish eternal peace using Islamic teachings.
Israel poses a threat to all Muslims worldwide, Nasrallah said, censuring the Bahraini regime for the normalization deal with Tel Aviv while lauding the Iraqi factions for condemning an event held in Erbil for the formalization of ties with the Israeli entity.
“Today, the United States and the supporters of the Zionist regime seek to ensure that Muslims do not oppose the Zionist occupiers even in their hearts,” the Hezbollah chief said.
“Muslims must stand against the normalization of relations with the Zionist regime by ant means they can,” he added.
The Hezbollah secretary-general praised the Iranian, Syrian, Iraqi and Yemeni support to the Palestinian cause despite all costs as well as the Bahrainis who rejected the normalization with Israel despite Manama’s punitive measures.
Daesh represents ‘wrong image’ of Islam, must be defeated
He also said members of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group depict a wrong image of the noble religion of Islam and the Muslim community.
“The Daesh Takfiris represent a wrong image of Islam and must be defeated,” the Hezbollah chief said. “All Muslim scholars must preserve the Umma’s unity and confront Daesh’s barbarism.”
