Hassan Nasrallah speaks on Egypt

Hezbollah leader has finally spoken on Egypt.  Based on this Al Jazeera article, he didn’t say anything unexpected.  He praised the protesters, comparing their achievements to those of his own group in its war with Israel in 2006.  Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been wary of the Lebanese Shi’a group for some time.  In all, the statements match those made Friday by Ayatollah Khamenei.  As for the United States:

Nasrallah also lashed out at the US for what he termed “backing the worst dictatorships” in the Middle East.

“The United States is trying to contain the revolution and improve its own ugly image in the Middle East and Islamic world … after years of backing the worst dictatorships our region has ever seen,” Nasrallah said.

“But be sure that regimes allied with the United States and Israel cannot stand long against the will of the people.”
