Hezbollah Blames Saudi Arabia for Spread of ‘Extremism’

Hezbollah on parade

BEIRUT — The leader of Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group launched his harshest criticism yet of Saudi Arabia on Friday, blaming the kingdom for the spread of extremist ideology in the Muslim world and the killing of civilians in Yemen.

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah told hundreds of supporters at a rally in southern Beirut organized in support of Yemen’s Shiite rebels that Saudi-led airstrikes targeting them have not led to victory.

Since March 26, the Saudi-led coalition has been pounding the rebels known as Houthis and allied fighters loyal to Yemen’s ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

Nasrallah said that the kingdom will soon realize that “the only choice left” is a ground operation in Yemen — a “ground invasion will be costly and will end with a defeat.”

Both the Houthis and Hezbollah are backed by Iran…

Hezbollah: noted for their moderate stance! Plenty of blame to go around here.

      They’re angry over the Saudi intervention in Yemen, is my guess.

    As long as they hate each other also.

    There must not be a word in Arabic for irony.

    • Frau Katze

      I don’t there is…they don’t act like it.

      ‘Kitman’ means that you say one thing and think another.

      ‘Irony’ in Arabic isn’t as charming…it means using a dull knife to cut an enemy’s head off.

    Hezbollah’s theocratic fascists are obviously MUCH BETTER than Saudi Arabia’s theocratic fascists!

    i think there is much more to the story of russia giving s-300 sam’s

    The Iranian could blame the Saudis, the Shiites could blame the Sunnis. Guess what, they are all at fault.

    I can’t place the Biblical quote, but it’s something like, “And I will feed them with their own flesh, and make them drunk on their own blood as with wine.”

    Pot and kettle. I can’t supply the rest of the adage because it uses the word “black”.
