Lebanese Shiite leaders spoke out against Hassan Nasrallh and his Iranian providers today.
ADN Kronos reported:
Hezbollah’s close ties with Iran are being viewed with suspicion by those Lebanese Shiites who fear their country’s sovereignity is being jeopardised. “Nasrallah’s total submission to the Iranian ayatollahs is transforming Lebanon into a province of the Islamic Republic,” Sobhi Tofeili, a former Hezbollah secretary general who was expelled from the movement in 1999 for his anti-Teheran stance, told Adnkronos International (AKI).
Two other prominent Shiite clerics, Ali al-Amin and Mohammad Haj Hassan have also distanced themselves from Nasrallah.
“Nasrallah has transformed Hezbollah in a toy in the hands of the Iranians and into an instrument of their regional policy,” Hassan, who heads the Association of Free Shiites, told AKI.
“The blind obedience of Nasrallah and other Hezbollah leaders towards Iran and its supreme leader the Ayatollah Khamenei risks plunging Lebanon into another civil war,” he added.
“The weapons [supplied by Iran] and the militias cannot guarantee Lebanon’s Shiites their rights and the violence that characterises Nasrallah and his group can only breed war and destruction,” Hassan said.
