Hezbollah Chief Warns Israel & ISIS, Reiterates Trump’s Claims

Fact checked

On the 10th anniversary of the Israel-Hezbollah war, Hassan Nasrallah has reiterated a controversial claim made by Donald Trump, saying that ISIS was created by Obama and Clinton.

The leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon warned Israel that the next war in the region will be the last, and reminded ISIS and other Takfiri groups that U.S. assisted terror groups were set up to destroy the region and the “Axis of Resistance.”

Alaraby reports:

“To ISIS, Nusra and the takfiri groups that are fighting, we tell you that you have been exploited over the last five years to destroy the ‘axis of resistance’ and the people of the region,” Nasrallah said in a televised speech marking the 10-year anniversary of the Lebanon-Israel war, using another name for Islamic State.

The Hizballah leader then turned towards the United States political sphere, urging his supporters to listen to comments made by officials.

Repeating comments made by Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, Nasrallah said the US had created the militant IS group to destroy the “axis of resistance.”

“The biggest weapon Trump is using against the Democrats is [to say] that they created ISIS. … He is saying ‘these were made by Clinton and Obama,’” he said, despite Trump later retracting his comments.

On the Israeli front, Nasrallah praised the efforts of those who took part in the 2006 “victory” against the occupiers, and suggested the war had been a blow to Israel’s confidence.

“Israel during the war was hit at its soul, confidence, determination and pride.”

The summer 2006 war lasted for 33 days, killing 1,200 Lebanese, mainly civilians, and 160 Israelis, most of whom were soldiers.

“The Israeli enemy knows that the next war will be the last, and that if it lost, there will no longer be an Israel,” he said.

He also said repeated remarks made 16 years ago suggesting Israel was weaker than a “spiderweb.”

“I tell Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu today that yes, Israel is weaker than a spider web and cannot fight and defend itself,” Nasrallah warned.

  1. I would not be so quick to dismiss Israel labeling it weaker than a spider web.  Israel has been enduring threats from Hezbollah & Iran for decades now.  I remember reading a book in the early 80’s in which the leaders of every Muslim nation said that Israel must be destroyed and Islam will spread throughout the world via Jihad.  Israel is great because of their God and the ancient Hebrew prophets have foretold the complete destruction of Syria, Iran, Turkey and the other countries allied against Israel at the battle of Armageddon.  Israel has been surrounded by sworn enemies from ancient times making the Israeli intelligence and military possibly the best in the world.  Add to that God’s blessing, protection, power and commitment to protect Israel & Jerusalem, and the complete destruction of any armies attacking Israel is guaranteed!
