Regardless of whether the supporters of political Shiism in Lebanon and the Middle East really believe in what the Hezbollah leaders term the “resistance project” or if the whole thing is nothing more than Iran’s grand regional project; what is happening on the ground is more than enough for us to put the trivial arguments aside.
Battle of Qusayr
Nasrallah now reveals the truth behind Hezbollah’s direct and active role in a regional plan that has nothing to do with confronting Israel.Eyad Abu Shakra
To those who followed the Al-Qusayr battle and its sectarian justifications, including confronting those described by Nasrallah as “takfirists” and the dangerous geographic consequences of what Syria will become, Nasrallah’s choice of Mashghara to deliver his speech was not surprising. This is particularly the case when you consider that this was a political speech in which the Hezbollah secretary-general officially announced that he no longer recognizes the state of Lebanon and invited Lebanese adversaries to meet him on the battlefields of Syria.
