Hezbollah Leader Hassan Nasrallah: 'The American Administration is Our Enemy... Death to America'
Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) ^ | February 22 2005

Posted on 02/22/2005 2:24:52 PM PST by knighthawk

Part of the ongoing work of the MEMRI TV Project is to monitor statements by leading terrorist organizations such as Al-Qa'ida and Hizbullah. This includes the recent appearance of Ayman Al-Zawahiri on Al-Jazeera on February 20, 2005. To view this clip, visit http://www.memritv.org/search.asp?ACT=S9&P1=565 .

The following are excerpts from two speeches by Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah. Al-Manar TV aired these speeches on February 18 and 19, 2005.(1) For more clips from MEMRI TV visit www.memritv.org

Speech One

Hassan Nasrallah: "Israel is our enemy. This is an aggressive, illegal, and illegitimate entity, which has no future in our land. Its destiny is manifested in our motto: 'Death to Israel.'"

Crowd: "Death to Israel"

"Death to Israel"

"Death to Israel"

"Death to Israel"

"Death to Israel"

Hassan Nasrallah: "The American administration is behind Israel. I must clarify that when I say 'America' I do not mean the American people, most of whom are distant and ignorant of what is going on in the world, and of what its government and army are doing in the world. Nevertheless, we consider the current administration an enemy of our [Islamic] nation and of the peoples of our nation, because it has always taken a position of aggression, of occupation, and of supporting Israel with weapons, airplanes, tanks, money, as well as political support, and unlimited protection.

"We consider it to be an enemy because it wants to humiliate our governments, our regimes, and our peoples. Because it is the greatest plunderer our treasures, our oil, and our resources, while millions in our nation suffer unemployment, poverty, hunger, unmarriagability, ignorance, darkness, and so on. America... This American administration is an enemy. Our motto, which we are not afraid to repeat year after year, is: 'Death to America.'"

Crowd: "Death to America"

"Death to America"

"Death to America"

"Death to America"

"Death to America"

"Death to America"

Hassan Nasrallah: "Some people may wonder and say: 'Is there no end to this hostility?' Yes, there is an an end. If the Zionists leave our lands and holy places and give them back to their owners, this conflict will come to an end. If America stops interfering in our countries' and nation's affairs, stops its aggression, stops its occupation, stops it's plundering of our resources and treasures, we will have no problem with it. We don't want to go to Washington to fight America. We are defending our countries and our existence.

"Any rift, civil strife, disintegration, or dispersion in any Arab or Islamic country, or in the entire nation, serves our Zionist enemy and its plan of hegemony, and serves the Great Satan - the American administration, whose main concern is to control our oil, our treasures, our resources, and our markets. [They want us] to become millions of slaves who eat and drink but are living dead, devoid of honor, respect, and existence."

Speech Two

Hassan Nasrallah: "How can death become joyous? How can death become happiness? When Al-Hussein asked his nephew Al-Qassem, when he had not yet reached puberty: 'How do you like the taste of death, son?' He answered that it was sweeter than honey. How can the foul taste of death become sweeter than honey? Only through conviction, ideology, and faith, through belief, and devotion.

"We do not want to live merely in order to eat, drink, and enjoy life's pleasures, and leave our homeland to Israel so it will slaughter it upon the altar of its aspirations, desires, hate, and historic vendettas. Therefore, we are not interested in our own personal security. On the contrary, each of us lives his days and nights hoping more than anything to be killed for the sake of Allah.

"The most honorable death is to be killed, as the Leader Imam Al-Khamenei said when 'Abbas [Musawi] was martyred. He said: 'Congratulations to 'Abbas, congratulations to 'Abbas.' The most honorable death is death by killing, and the most honorable killing and the most glorious martyrdom is when a man is killed for the sake of Allah, by the enemies of Allah, the murderers of the prophets [i.e. the Jews]."

The USA may have to accomodate them, as Saddam definitely sent them some weapons we'd like to get out hands on. "Administrative Terrorism" is absolutely unacceptable.

Yeah, but Kid, are you sure you can trust old Uncle Hassan? After all, he hasn't tasted the sweetness of death.

It's not like he's risking anything...if he's wrong, he's lost nothing.

But you...well, it'll be different for you...

How long is France going to continue to support this clearly terrorist group?

Better make up your mind real damn quick. Believe me, we Americans are at the point where if these Islamofacists attack YOU (and they will. Appeasement does NOT work remember?) we are NOT going to come save your a$$es again.

Pudge-boy looks a little like that Sadr punk in Iraq now that I think about it. Let's just say that malnutrition isn't one of the innumerable Zionist oppressions to plague this particular feller.

These guys hold a grudge a long time. I do too - clear back to 1983. We clear Syria out of Lebanon and there won't be anything between us and the killers of 200 Marines but a whole lot of Iranian money and hot air. Those do not tend to stop JDAMS.

Islam owns everything on this earth. That's why Islam wants the whole world. After all, the world is theirs. Allah told Mohammed that in a dream.

For that, we all must die.

Oh, we're quite up on what's going on around the World, Hassan. And you can stop spouting that tired old line 'I like Americans, but I hate the American government' too. Our form of government may be imperfect, but its leaders are directly elected by the American people and are held responsible by them.

Can you say the same thing about your leaders, Hassan?

Hassan Nasrallah: "The American administration is behind Israel. I must clarify that when I say 'America' I do not mean the American people..."

If Nasrallah had half a brain he would know that most Americans support Israel -- not the infidels who worship the false religion of Islam. He would also know that his raging lunacy makes him a target of an anti-personnel missle. What a moron. God deliver us from these infidels.

Seadevil to Hassan Nasrallah: You pretty tough standin' there with a bunch of thug-bully-cowards echoing your rants. Tell ya what, come on up here to Idaho and start your rants...bring your friends...bring lots of 'em. I'm one of the ones responsible for causin' the burial of several of your bestest buds 'bout a decade or so ago. They were easy targets then and they still are. So come get some, dewd. I seriously doubt you'll find 12 people up here who would say I wasn't justified in buryin' a few more.
