"Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah stressed nothing "links us to the current government after our ministers have resigned". His eminence was speaking Monday to some seven thousand people who's properties in the southern suburb of Beirut, were devastated. Sayyed Nasrallah stressed this government will go and another "clean one will replace it and rebuild" whatever was destroyed by the Israeli July war against Lebanon. "We won't abandon the people," he added. Sayyed Nasrallah also said that this current government was aware of the Israeli war against Lebanon and had asked the Israelis to prolong it. His eminence called on the people not to fear from a "civil war" breaking out adding that some politicians and groups are terrifying the people with it. The Secretary General stressed only the weak daunt the people this way. "This is our country and we have offered thousands of martyrs, wounded and detainees as well as every precious thing we could possibly have for the sake of this country, protecting it and defending its pride and dignity; we will not throw this away and we will preserve national unity and stability," his eminence said. Sayyed Nasrallah expressed relief at the resignation of the ministers of Hezbollah and Amal Movement from the government. He refused to link between the tribunal of international character in the assassination of former PM Rafiq Hariri on the one hand and a national unity government on the other, stressing this government which has zero credibility, will go. Sayyed Nasrallah revealed that he had told the head of the so called parliamentary majority MP Saad Hariri that "we do not have a second nationality, we were borne here and we will die and be buried here. We will hunger here and we will eat here, so no one bids on our patriotism and belongingness." Sayyed Nasrallah underlined the plan of reconstruction will not be affected by the current political crisis adding that it will go on as planned. His eminence expressed hope that the process of reconstruction would kick off in Beirut's southern suburb within three months."
This is what Hamas needs to do with Abbas and all the other crooks and collaborators in the so-called PA. Either clean it and put clean, nationalistic figures in it or pull out of it and seek the end of the PA. By staying in and working with these agents and thieves, Hamas is giving them legitimacy and discrediting itself in the process.
The way I see it, Hamas has a lot to learn from Hizbullah, at every level: political, organizational, resistance, etc. Hamas is proving to be rather green and a bit naive.
