Distress Signals By Hizbullah Leader Nasrallah And Pro-Hizbullah Media Reflect Growing Sense Of Existential Danger, Crisis Of Confidence Between Hizbullah And Its Supporters

Recent statements by Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah regarding the existential danger faced by his organization and the resistance axis in the war against ISIS, and regarding the possible need for a general mobilization of Hizbullah members, reflect the deep crisis currently afflicting the organization and the deep distress felt by its leadership. This distress stems from the situation in Syria, namely the heavy losses sustained by Hizbullah in the fighting there and the defeat of the resistance axis in many areas, especially in the north and south of Syria. It also results from a decline in Hizbullah’s standing among the Lebanese Shi’ites, who, according to many reports, have begun expressing a lack of confidence in Hizbullah and are reluctant to join its ranks.

In his statements, Nasrallah pointedly tried to persuade the Shi’ites in Lebanon that the war in Syria is an existential campaign that affects them directly, and therefore they must not only stand beside Hizbullah but refrain from expressing any criticism against it. He also clarified that in such a war everybody must do his part and must be willing to make great sacrifices.

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if Hezbollah disintegrates and the Lebanese Shiites turn to Israel to rescue them from ISIS?

      I would march them all to large pits and shoot them.

    Sounds like the perfect time to whack nasrallah and all the filth that surround him.

  • Get the hell out of the way and let the Muslims keep killing other Muslims.

    They are good at it.

    Maybe the Hezbollah shiites would be more effective against sunni ISIS, if they starting using the 80,000 or so missiles they have stored in Lebanon to attack Israel, on attacking ISIS instead?
