Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah
congratulating Muslims on the approach of the birth of the holy prophet (pbuh)
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
on the upcoming elections in Lebanon: I want to highlight several points here, the first being that we insist on holding the parliamentary elections in their designated due date.
Sayyed #Nasrallah:
As for the Lebanese diaspora casting their votes, there will be no equal opportunity for all since Hezbollah cannot carry out any kind of election campaigns in Europe, North America, nor the Gulf. However, we still agreed to the idea of diaspora casting votes.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
We have also been calling for adjusting the age of voting to 18 instead of 21 since 2009, but other parties in the country have not supported this step for political reasons. We still call for this step today and in the coming elections.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
On the electricity issue in Lebanon: If we are afraid of heading East and dealing with China, Russia, Iran...out of fear of American sanctions, why don't we head West? Or is there an American Veto on dealing with Europe as well?
S #Nasrallah:
Government officials should be honest with the people & tell them that America, who those officials consider to be a friend & lover, is preventing them from seeking help even from Europe. Be honest & let the people say their opinion. Do they like living in the dark?
Sayyed #Nasrallah:
Iranian officials have been asking Lebanese officials to seek exemptions from the Americans to allow them to at least build a power plant. A Lebanese official responded to the Iranian saying, "I wish you would seek this exemption for us." What irresponsibility!
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
There are fears of attempts to completely destroy the electricity sector to justify the privatization of this sector.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
We will continue the diesel grants we started with for a second month now to the same categories mentioned before, in addition to fishermen and less fortunate municipalities. ⬇️
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
The second stage of diesel imports will be under the theme of heating for families since winter is approaching. Details on this will follow soon.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
If the Lebanese authorities make the initiative to import diesel, gasoline, etc. from Iran, we vow to leave this issue to the government alone and to facilitate the process in any way we can with our Iranian friends.
Sayyed #Nasrallah:
Even if the families of the martyrs of the port explosion gave up on the investigations, we will not give up on them until the truth is revealed. The judiciary is not fulfilling its duties and is acting upon political benefit rather than seeking the truth.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
This judiciary is not acting upon its responsibilities. The ammonium nitrate arrived to Lebanon and stayed at the port throughout the reign of two Lebanese presidents. President Aoun offered to give his testimony, why did the judge not listen to him?
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
Why did you not call former president Michel Sleiman to hear his testimony? Several prime ministers also covered the position of PM, but you only called PM Hassan Diab because you saw him to be weak since he has no political coverage.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
The responsibility of the judiciary is greater than that of a government, president, minister...why won't those judges reveal the truth? Because it does not serve the political agenda of the parties they are affiliated with.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
Calling upon certain ministers and prime ministers only to the investigations is evidence of the political targeting taking place. There are countless flaws in the process of the investigations, but this does not mean that we agree upon terminating them.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
The scenes of men, women, and children who were killed in Afghanistan merely for standing in a mosque and praying are absolutely heartbreaking.
Sayyed #Nasrallah:
America, while negotiating with the Taliban in Doha, was working on moving ISIS from Syria to Afghanistan. Their goal is to push for civil war in Afghanistan. ISIS announced its responsibility for this attack. The blood of those martyrs is on America's hands.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
I also want to highlight an incident that took place a while ago: Our dear brother martyr Nizar Banat, who was arrested and abused to death by the Palestinian authorities. He was a brave, courageous, resisting, intellectual hero.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
Finally, as I mentioned in the beginning, the birth of the holy prophet is approaching, and our Yemeni brothers and sisters have held magnificent celebrations across the past years despite their extremely difficult conditions.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
I am embarrassed before them and call upon everyone to participate in celebrating the birth of the holy prophet (pbuh) despite any difficulties.

Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah from tonight's Ashura speech:
Those who consider themselves to be of the elites, who hold press conferences and attack Hezbollah and address me personally expecting a response, they should be treated in one way: ignoring them.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
Responding to those people gives them value. Interacting with them on social media increases their numbers and engagement. They get paid for the lies they spread from the Saudi and American embassies. We should ignore them and not benefit them.
Sayyed Hassan #Nasrallah:
The ones responsible for the gas, diesel, medicine, and other crises are the government, central bank, and many people. There were 2 reasons to the fuel crisis: monopolization and smuggling. Many overlooked the monopolization that took place.

Just to be clear, Hezbollah hasn't issued any statement concerning their stance about the ongoing events in Afghanistan, not through the Secretary General, media relations office, or any other public figure in the party. They've only stated incidents, and not any stances.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and Sayyed Ibrahim Al-Amin said across the past two days that America has done so and so. They did not even mention the Taliban, let alone what they think of what the Taliban is doing today. Let us not assume and be patient.
It is also crucial for us to not feel the need to take any stance ourselves for the time being concerning the Taliban, especially if we consider ourselves from the people of the Resistance and trust our leadership. Now is a time to observe rather than speak.

The reason(s) many people don't see how the ceasefire is a victory are almost identical to what we heard after 2006: "but israel is still there; Palestine was not liberated, how is do you call this victory?" They see destruction & casualties, but there is more than meets the eye:
1. The fight against the Zionist enemy is a very long one. It is a war composed of countless battles, which this 11-day battle was one of and which was won by the Resistance. The enemy calls for ceasefire=admitting defeat.
Zionist media:
2. The Palestinian Resistance fought this battle on its own; none of its allies were directly involved in the attacks in any way other than logistics, moral, and financial support. The fighting and firing was all from Gaza and within the occupied territories and West Bank.
