BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) – The Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said on Friday, that his organization “will not remain silent on the crime of bombing the Port of Beirut if it is proven that Israel is behind it.”

In his speech on the occasion of the “victory on July 14” in 2006, Nasrallah said, “Hezbollah has no information about the Beirut Port explosion.”

He said that there are two hypotheses about the causes of the Beirut Port explosion, whether it was accidental or sabotage.

He continued, “If it is proven that the cause of the Beirut Port explosion is a sabotage, the negligence must be held accountable, but we must start an investigation about those behind it.”

He explained that if Israel is linked to the explosion at the port, the truth will not be reached in light of the FBI’s participation in the ongoing investigation.

The Secretary-General of Hezbollah emphasized that “the most dangerous thing is that facing a national calamity of this magnitude, there was a project to bring down the Lebanese state, I want it to push the country into civil war.”

He added, “Hezbollah is concerned with the direct security of the resistance, and we are not able to assume full responsibility for national security with its internal dimension.”

He is absolutely right. The FBI is a corrupt, rotten, politicized agency, which you employ when you want to reach a preordained cover-up, and/or a wash-out. From the JFK assassination, up to the recent ”Russiagate”, the evidence is abundant. And whenever some FBI personnel tries really hard to find the truth, the FBI either destroys their career (Coleen Crowley), or simply kills them (John P. O’ Neill). In the case of Beirut the evidence is so abundant, that Abbas Ibrahim and his agency are totally able to find the culprits. Special attention must be devoted to the political affiliation of… Read more »

Thank you Nasrallah : I just earned 100€ : I took the bet you would say something like this, my colleague said you wouldn’t be enough dumb to advance such stuff without proof. It took only Hezbollah to stockpile 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate in the middle of a city for 6 years in deplorable storage conditions to end with a blast on the 1st sparkle… Now he’ll surely plant fake-evidence to dodge his own responsibility.

But of course you know full well that it’s Israeli propaganda that the nitrate stored at the port was “owned”by Hezbollah
