Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah has described American leaders as anti-human and brutal, saying US citizens are the first victims of such leaders.
“US authorities are anti-human,” the 49-year-old Nasrallah said, adding the country is governed by the most brutal and greedy individuals.
The Hezbollah chief made the remark during a televised speech marking the eighth day of Muharram on Friday night.
In a reference to the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks Nasrallah said that “The American democracy has victimized the Iraqi and Afghan people.”
Years after the US-led invasion of the two Muslim countries, daily violence is calming the lives of people in the two war-ravaged states.
The Hezbollah Secretary General also urged his country’s politicians to “observe a one-year truce” in an attempt to avoid new conflicts.
Nasrallah also called for giving the unity government an opportunity to function.
“Let those who don’t want to tackle the people’s priorities resign from the cabinet,” he noted.
Nasrallah has headed the Hezbollah resistance movement since 1992 when his predecessor, Abbas Moussaoui, was killed in an Israeli helicopter raid.
