Nasrallah Vowing to Sustain Assad’s Regime (Dubbed Video)

“Syria is the backbone of the resistance and we will not sit with our hands crossed.”
Sayed Nasrallah Speech

Hezbollah’s chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Saturday praised President Bashar Assad, describing him as the backbone of the resistance, and reiterated that his party would prevent the fall of the regime in Damascus.

“Syria is the backbone of the resistance and we will not sit with our hands crossed,” Nasrallah said at a televised speech.during a ceremony marking the 13th anniversary of Israel’s May, 2000 military withdrawal from Lebanon.

“I say to all the honorable people, to the mujahedeen, to the heroes: I have always promised you a victory and now I pledge to you a new one” in Syria, he said

Nasrallah, who only recently threatened his party would intervene militarily to prevent the fall of Assad, also argued that the Syrian rebel forces, posed a grave danger to Lebanon and the religious diversity it enjoyed.

“If Syria falls into the hand of America, Israel and takfiris, the resistance (Hezbollah) will be besieged and Israel will enter Lebanon and impose its will,” Nasrallah said. The term “Takfiri Islamists” refers to an ideology that urges Sunni Muslims to kill anyone they consider an infidel.

“If Syria falls in the hands of America, Israel and the takfiris, the people of our region will go into a dark period,” he said. “If Syria falls, Palestine will be lost.”

“We entered a new phase a few weeks ago: the phase of fortifying the resistance and protecting its backbone,” he said.

He also justified his party’s intervention in Syria, arguing the toppling of Assad would render his group vulnerable and open to being targeted by its enemies Israel and the United States.

Syria, along with Iran, has been the main backer of Hezbollah and much of the group’s arsenal consisting of tens of thousands of rockets is believed to have come through or from Syria. Iran and Hezbollah are predominantly Shia, while Assad’s Alawite sect is a distant offshoot of Shia Islam.

In past weeks, Syrian rebels in the besieged town of Qusair have been under heavy bombardment from Hezbollah combatants. The town is close to the Lebanese border, a conduit for both the government and rebels to get weapons. Dozens of Hezbollah militants are said to have been killed fighting alongside Syrian troops in Qusair since May 19, when government forces launched an offensive to recapture the rebel-held town.

As always, we wish both sides in the conflict many more years of success in their endeavors.

  1. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at that short chapter. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    Rising anti-Semitism in Europe is fueled by three main sources: the extreme right, largely boosted by concerns about the economic crisis and growing migration; the extreme left, which refuses to accept Israel’s right to exist; and those Muslims who espouse hatred for Jews and Israel. Apropos, a recent study in Belgium found that nearly half of Muslim teenage students held anti-Semitic views. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

    LONDON, – The British government, facing criticism over the killing of a soldier by suspected Islamists in a London street, is to set up a new group to combat radical Muslim preachers and others whose words could encourage violence.

    Prime Minister David Cameron's office said on Sunday the group aimed to fight radicalism in schools and mosques, tighten checks on inflammatory internet material, and disrupt the "poisonous narrative" of hardline clerics.


    "It will assess the range of strategies to disrupt individuals who may be influential in fostering extremism. It needs to confront those religious leaders who promote violence head on," it said in a statement. FYI Rabbi DR. BERNHARD Rosenberg
