Hezbollah leader criticizes US Democrats and Republicans for supporting Israeli crimes


TEHRAN (IQNA) — The secretary general of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah has said that American Democrats and Republicans are the same in always supporting the crimes of the Israeli regime and the killing of Palestinians.

Sayed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks on Friday as he addressed a ceremony marking Lebanon’s Martyrs’ Day.

Referring to the US midterm elections, Nasrallah said “Republican and Democratic governments have launched wars and invasions.”

“American Democrats and Republicans have always supported Israeli crimes and massacres against the Palestinian people,” he said.

“The goals of all US administrations are similar, only their tactics differ,” he said, adding that the primary party responsible for the survival of the Zionist regime in the region is successive US administrations.

He reiterated that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans, therefore, “we should rely on our own power and on our friends instead of putting hope on Americans.”

He then called on the Lebanese people not to give in to “the curse of the United States”, whose only desire is to protect the Israeli regime.

Referring to a recent demarcation agreement between Lebanon and Israel, Nasrallah said that “Washington did not enter into the maritime boundary demarcation agreement for the good of Lebanon, but rather to spare the region from war because its priorities are now Ukraine, Russia and energy”.

“All Zionist occupiers are oppressors”

He also referred to the recent elections in Israel which led to the rise of the far right, saying: “It doesn’t matter to us who wins the Israeli elections, they are all worse than each other, and they are all oppressors”.

All Israeli governments since the one led by Ben-Gurion are similar, he said, adding that things will not change despite the victory of the far-right coalition.

This election affects internal conflicts within the Zionist regime and will exacerbate deep divisions, “accelerating” the decline of the regime, the Lebanese leader stressed.

He also said Netanyahu would not be able to revoke the maritime deal.

Netanyahu, who served as prime minister from 2009 to 2021, won the election despite accusations of corruption and political dysfunction. Netanyahu and his right-wing allies are about to form the most extremist regime in Israel’s history.
