Hezbollah Secretary General Syed Hassan Nasrallah says the United States and Israel are the biggest losers of recent developments in the region.The leader of the Lebanese resistance movement said on Wednesday the recent revolution in Egypt has mostly affected the US and Israeli interests and decreased their regional influence.Nasrallah lauded the Egypt revolution, saying that it was the will of the Â Egyptian youth that toppled the pro-Western regime of President Hosni Mubarak.
Hezbollah’s secretary general reiterated that resistance movements in the region are a natural popular reaction to the West’s hegemony.He said that all are aware of Mubarak’s stance on Israel’s devastating offensive against the Gaza Strip at the turn of 2009 and the regime’s war on Lebanon in July 2006.Mubarak supported the Israelis then and was disappointed by the victory of the resistance, he stressed.
Nasrallah said the US mission in the Middle East is to protect its interest and those of Israel. The more a system in an Arab country is closer to Israel, the more it is closer to the US.
Addressing US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the situation in the Middle East, he said Israel is the root of all problems in the region.Back to top button
Nasrallah recalled how the Israeli army occupied Palestinian territories over sixty year ago and drove out the rightful owners of the land.
Now the biggest losers are the United States, Israel and their allies from Arab states, he noted.
