Angry Hizbullah protestors tonight took to the streets in anger, burning tires, blocking roads and harassing traveling cars. Their misdirected anger was in reaction to a usually lame LBC political satire show that portrayed Hassan Nasrallah, Hizbullah’s secretary general as a… fallible human being.
Nasrallah issued a statement urging his
followers worshippers to go back home. The statement thanked “those who expressed their emotions and affection, and who were incensed and angry and took to the streets… I bow before them and appreciate their good feelings. In any case, what happened was unfortunate, and this is a problem that existed in the country for a while, there is no respect for values and statures and emotions… “ Nasrallah promised his devotees that Hizbullah will "pursue this case through the proper channels to prevent the repetition of such mistakes that offend values respected by some people in Lebanon."
Mind you all these “good feelings” were absent when people are murdered by Bashar Assad, or when our prime minister is called a slave of a slave by Assad. Trespasses of the kind that afflict other Lebanese and their values are forgiven in Hizbullah ideology.
They are forgiven because Samir Kassir, Rafik Hariri, Gebran Tueni, Bassel Fleihan, George Hawi and the Lebanese soldiers killed by Assad's thugs were not despots or religious figures. Their murder never amounted to a "problem" that required any reaction by Hizbullah.
Nasrallah is divine, any criticism of him is haram, but the rest are batata "halal" for slicing and frying.
