BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:25 P.M.) – Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah unequivocally rejected the US’ allegations about his organization’s rumored drug trade, saying such accusations are merely groundless.

Sayyed Nasrallah’s words on Friday came in a televised address at a memorial ceremony to commemorate Quneitra’s martyrs and the 40th anniversary of the death of Fayez Mughniyeh “Abu Imad Mughnieh”.

“When any official in Lebanon speaks about security, we must all know that such a security would not have been realized without the sacrifices of fallen martyrs,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, paying tribute to their unswerving families as well.

On the other hand, Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah deems the drug issue as religiously forbidden “haram”, voicing utter rejection of accusing the Party of drug related dossiers.

He noted that Hizbullah has in principle a crystal clear religious, ethical and moral stance vis-a-vis the issue of drugs, saying it is forbidden and prohibited by religion.

Nasrallah pointed out that American attempts to smear Hezbollah as a terror organization have failed since the Party has proven to be amongst the most important forces fighting terrorism. As such, the new American attempt nowadays shifted to portraying Hezbollah a criminal organization involved in drug trafficking and car theft, Nasrallah noted.

Nasrallah called on the U.S. Justice Department to undergo an investigation in Lebanon in this regard.

Turning to the issue of the wall set to be established by the Israeli enemy in the disputed border area, Nasrallah said the Party stands by the State and the army in rejecting any Israeli measures to be undertaken in these disputed areas.

“You should take Lebanon’s warnings in a very serious manner,” Nasrallah addressed the Israelis.

On the contentious normalization issue with Israel, Nasrallah stressed Lebanon’s commitment to avoid any sort of normalization ties with Israel as long as there is no just and comprehensive peace. “Lebanon must uphold its commitment,” Nasrallah said, stressing that this matter should be addressed.

On the recent explosion that occurred in the city of Sidon that targeted one of Hamas officials, the Secretary General pointed out that the Party follows up on investigations undertaken in this regard, saying that all evidence show that Israel is the one that carried out this operation.

Turning to the forthcoming legislative elections, Nasrallah expressed his belief that “no one in Lebanon wants to postpone or call off the elections,” voicing rejection of isolating anyone and highlighting the importance of complementary and coexistence.

Never heard about Irangate?
DEA does smth, CIA does smth else…
If you don’t oppress dealers, prices don’t sky-rocket!
BTW, you still find “Lebanese-Red” hash on European market.
I don’t know if they still grow poppies in Lebanon, same for Turkey.
Both once were huge producers but the Afghan production is so huge.
You don’t heat about Turkish or Lebanese heroin or opium for a good 2 decades any more. Well, maybe have they switched to legal morphine and codeine?
I remember about reading of attempts to acclimate coca in Lebanon during the 90’s

Hezb Cocaine activities are well known in Colombian and Bolivia and… For long…
Well, how a “cleric” like Nasrallah can end with a $300 millions persona wealth without working?

Now that is funny. For the 1st time I read something the US are not lying about… What those gang of criminals forgot to tell are the facts, beside Hezbollah are importing Cocaine from the Mexican Drug Cartels to sell it to Europe, the head of the Mexican Drug Cartels is Warren Buffet and his friends of the CIA.
The whole world is a stage-play with the tiny difference.. On that stage folks are really dead…
