The Lebanese daily, As-Safir newspaper, reported on Tuesday that Sayyed Nasrallah told his visitors recently that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group’s unoriginality and lack of feasibility will be the cause of their fall.

His Eminence revealed in the meeting that he predicted the confrontation between the Kurds and ISIL in Iraq before it took place. He added that these facts and predictions demonstrated ISIL’s inability to build a state on the Iraqi land, stressing that even Iraqi Sunnis do not accept to be ruled or controlled by the terrorist organization.

Despite the pressures now that the ISIL has entered Lebanese territory and has begun to carry out terrorist attacks in Arsal, As-Safir reported that Sayyed Nasrallah seemed comfortable concerning the recent events, and was confident in the future based on a clear vision.

Sayyed Nasrallah said that ISIL’s scheme in Lebanon has no “horizons” and does not have viability in the long term as an organization.

Alternatively, As-Safir also reported that Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated his fixed support to Christians and to General Michel Aoun’s candidacy, and will continue to support him, as long as the General remains willing to run for president.

His Eminence reportedly informed Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt of his political stance on Aoun during their last meeting together.

As-Safir quoted Jumblatt as saying literally: “Sayyed… The situation of Christians in the region is weak and is further declining. The Christians, as well as the Druze, are packing their bags and leaving. Therefore, a fast election for a new president is required to reduce the aggravation of this reality.”

Sayyed Nasrallah reportedly replied to Jumblatt, saying: “Walid Beik… the president exists.. It’s General Aoun, and we will continue to support him. In all cases, you should not only speak to me, you need to meet with the General and agree with him about this.”

Concerning the Syrian file, Sayyed Nasrallah notes that some still insist on inflating the number of Hezbollah martyrs in Syria, especially in the barrens of Al-Qalamoun and the Eastern mountain range, stressing that there is an amplification of the figures, noting that the party is proud of the sacrifices offered and does not hide the name of a martyr.
