Nasrallah on Libya


     The left discussion on Libya has been informed by very few of the Middle East’s anti-imperialist voices. In an article posted on ZNet, I present extended excerpts from a March 19 speech by Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Lebanon’s Hizbullah, on the Libyan uprising, the Arab revolts, and the role of the West.

     Nasrallah dismisses the claim that the Arab revolts were choreographed in Washington. He expresses solidarity with the Libyan opposition, and warns of the dangers of Western intervention — whose motives are entirely hypocritical. He does not, however, condemn the no-fly zone or call for its immediate lifting.
