"16/03/2008 Hezbollah issued a statement on Saturday commenting on the document issued by the March 14 coalition in the commemoration of March 14, saying its latest declaration was tantamount to a U.S. membership I.D.
"The language that prevailed over the political declaration is tantamount to a membership in the American scheme in the region and blatantly consolidated its (ruling bloc’s) bias position under (the helm) of American options," Hezbollah said in its statement.
The statement cited talk about "two different views in the world, impaired memory …, calls for revenge …, calls for rebellion against Damascus …, and clear accusations that the resistance works for foreign interests, regarding Israel as a regional power rather than enemy and putting it in the same category as Iran."
Hezbollah’s comments came in response to March 14's "first political declaration" that was announced by the alliance on the third anniversary of the Cedar Revolution.
"We had hoped that the political declaration was positive and worked for extending a hand … rather than rejecting the other and claiming purity for themselves," said the statement. "He who extends a hand to the other (party) should believe in the other (party) so together we can work to build the state," Hezbollah said."
