Nasrallah: Only alternative to deal with Iran is war
Times of Israel ^ | November 13, 2013, 10:22 pm

Failure to reach a deal between Iran and world powers over Tehran’s nuclear program could lead to a war in the Middle East, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah said Wednesday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “is doing everything he can to make the Iranian nuclear negotiations [in Geneva] with the P5+1 countries fail,” Nasrallah accused Wednesday.

In a rare public appearance in south Beirut on the eve of the Ashoura holiday, commemorated by Shiite Muslims as a day of mourning for the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, the terror chief said the Israeli prime minister was “furious [at the prospect of an agreement] and tried to obstruct an accord.”

Nasrallah has made few public appearances since his terror group fought a 34-day war with Israel in 2006 for fear of assassination by Israel. Nasrallah usually gives his speeches from secret locations and speaks through a television link.

Nasrallah further accused Netanyahu of “pushing for war” and of becoming a “spokesperson for several Arab countries” who are also “acting similarly to Israel and rejecting a political solution in Syria and any international accord with Iran.”

“Israel wants the US to attack Syria, Afghanistan and Iran to preserve its security,” he added.

“To all Arab peoples in the Gulf countries of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, UAE and Oman: What is the alternative to an understanding between Iran and world leaders? It is regional war,” Nasrallah warned.

But, he went on, “any accord that prevents a war in the region is rejected by Israel.”

The terror chief praised Hezbollah’s ties with its “two allies only: Syria and Iran that have never abandoned us,” and warned of intervention in Lebanese affairs — a critique aimed at Saudi Arabia — in order to influence the outcome of the war in Syria.

Hezbollah is in a perpetual state of war. The only answer is to destroy them.
