Arrest warrant issued for Lebanese journalist who tweeted that Israel should assassinate Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah
Nasrallah says during Bush admin a Lebanese-American gave them a letter allegedly from the VP Dick Cheney saying US will remove Hezbollah off terror list, recognize them internationally + $2 billion under 3 conditions
Nasrallah: We have proof of US support of ISIS from Lebanon. When Lebanon decided to launch Arsal battle against ISIS, Americans and @usembassybeirut pressured Lebanon to halt the operation, at least until next year, and then they cut military aid.
Hezbollah leader Nasrallah says Iran Protests would not have any impact on the funding of his movement
Nasrallah: Beyond that, most Iranians understand this as national security matter, that if Iran doesn't act abroad, war would be inside Iran. So, Iran's foreign intervention is not something imposed by government, but something the people wants. Those who don't are a tiny minority.
Nasrallah: Regarding protesters chanting the slogan, "Not Gaza, not Lebanon - my life for Iran," - this slogan doesn't have much popular support. We've heard it before, but most Iranian people support government's foreign policy of acting in Syria, Iraq, for Palestine, and Lebanon
