Secretary General of Hezbullah Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah issued a statement on al-Manar (Hezbullah’s television station, meaning Lighthouse or Guiding Light in English) condemning Tuesday’s bombings of an American convoy. His statements were issued on the 7th night of Muharram, a period of mourning for Shi’i Muslims centered around the martyrdom of Imam Husayn in Karbala. Nasrallah said that individuals must take a calm and clear look around them to see what is happening in the region. He emphasized that Hezbullah condemns any type of bombing on Lebanese soil.
Nasrallah also commented on Bush’s visit to the region. He said that it’s necessary for the people to look at the words, actions, promises, and threats of Bush during his visit. He said that the current American administration is representative of an alliance between three forces: big oil companies, weapons companies, and the Zionist-Christian trend — he emphasized that this is not to be confused with ordinary Christianity.
