BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri fired back at Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday, claiming that his group does not support terrorists.

The Lebanese Premier claimed that his group rescued Lebanon from the Islamic State (Daesh) terrorist group.

“Days ago, al-Mustaqbal Movement was accused of backing Daesh (Islamic State group) and the terrorist groups. This is a totally baseless accusation, because we are the ones who rescued the country, offered martyrs and stood in the face of Daesh before anyone else did,” Hariri stated, as quoted by Naharnet.

Hariri would then take a shot at Hezbollah’s Security General, stating that if someone was funding extremism, it would be Hezbollah.

“Accordingly, Hizbullah has no right to accuse us of funding extremism, seeing as if someone is funding extremism, it would be Hizbullah itself, through its actions and behavior,” he concluded.

There is a proverb that says “It is better to keep your mouth shut and make people believe that you are stupid rather than open your mouth and confirm it.” Hiszballah not only saved Lebanon from ISIS and other terrorists who were supported by Al Hariri and his likes but also Hizballah saved hariri’s ass from Saudi Arabia> Without Hizballah harriri could be a hostage in Saudi Arabia until this moment.

The problem with harriri and his likes that they are slaves to the money they sold their conscious for.

Hariri needs to give a blood sample test to prove he is not a house of saudi wahabi of spring?

Separation on ground of religion will no go any further. In my home town 50% are Christians (including me) and 50% Muslims. So, far we have lived together in peace for centuries. I have many Muslim friends better than some of my Christian friends. However, I never separate them on religious ground. It’s baseless and foolish. People must live together in peace choosing their religion by their own will and they should never be separated because of this…
