BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Deputy Head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council, Sheikh Nabil Qa’ouq, stated on Saturday that his organization will give full support to the Palestinian resistance fighters that are fighting US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“Hezbollah does not give significance for the American or Saudi anger because it does not suffer from any sense of appeasement or weakness for America and its followers in the region,” said Qaouq at a memorial service, as quoted by Naharnet.

“Saudi normalization and concessions with the Israeli enemy are more painful than the Trump decision. The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques has failed Jerusalem and the sanctity of Muslims,” he added in reference to a statement made by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir about the US decision.

Hezbollah sponsored a massive demonstration in southern Beirut this week that called out Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
