Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah told supporters in Beirut’s suburbs Thursday, “We won’t bargain our presence in Lebanon, Syria and the axis of resistance for some ministerial portfolios” to form a new Lebanese government.

He said he is defending Syrian President Bassar al-Assad because he backs the “resistance” against Israel.

Nasrallah appeared in public, a rare occurrence, instead of beaming his message through video links. He spoke in a Beirut suburb as hundreds of thousands of people were celebrating a Shi’ite Muslim festival.

Hezbollah has helped Assad push back the opposition in the civil war but has paid a price, with hundreds of casualties and unprecedented criticism for dragging Lebanon, already dominated by pro-Syrian elements, deeper into the conflict.

The Lebanese government was dissolved seven months ago, and the civil war already has spilled over into the country, raising fears of a repeat of the former 15-year-old civil war in Lebanon.

  1. The question now is how long will it take to remove the chemical weapons in Syria? Another important question is that while we try to do that will some other event in the middle east trigger a bigger war before the chemical weapons are removed? Also linked to the Syrian war is Iran. The window for Iran to shut down and dismantle it’s nuclear program is closing fast. With all of this volatility if anything should go wrong the war written about in Isaiah 17 may take place. Many will die on both sides and Damascus Syria would be destroyed. I believe the movement for a 1 world government would then kick into high gear. We all know about the pressure for a 1 world currency and for world peace, it’s just a matter of time. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that talks about 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
