Fayez Sara, a member of the Syrian Coalition’s Foreign Affairs Committee, said that Hasan Nasrallah is “parroting the regime’s words and lies in his new-old speech.” Sara added that “Nasrallah is playing on the emotions of the Lebanese people in an attempt to gain sympathizers by speaking about those who went missing and kidnapped in Lebanon’s civil war. However, he was always been opposed to Lebanon’s attempts to know the fate of the missing people in Assad’s prisons. In fact, he never wanted to get involved in the matter at all.” Sara pointed out that “If Nasrallah believes that there’s no military solution in Syria, and that the solution must be a political one, then he must pull out his militiamen from Syria and take practical, tangible steps as a prelude to his cooperation towards a political solution.”
Sara also highlighted his belief that “It’s better if Nasrullah turns his attention to the situation in Lebanon instead of Syria, since Lebanon is already witnessing political disintegration represented by the country’s inability to formulate a government, which is the result of the political parties’ stubbornness and inconsistency, with Hezbollah as the most prominent example. Hezbollah should focus on solving the situation in Lebanon, which is much more important. Instead, Hezbollah presented itself as a party in the Assad regime by sending its militias to fight alongside Assad against the Syrian people, thus acting just like occupation forces. It also teamed up with a party that is committing crimes against humanity, with the battles they waged in Quseir and rural Damascus as the most striking examples.
Sara’s speech came as a response to one delivered by the Secretary General of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, Hasan Nasrallah, where he pointed out that “settling the issue of those who were kidnapped in Azaz opened the door for settling the issue of the Lebanese who went missing during Lebanon’s civil war” adding that “pretense won’t work here, instead there must be a serious work on this issue, as there is a chance of finally getting some serious answers regarding it.” Nasrallah also noted that “the situation in Syria affects every aspect in Lebanon, as there is a faction there that is holding off on everything waiting to see how the situation in Syria will work out.” Nasrallah made it clear that “the whole world agreed that there’s no military solution in Syria, and that for a solution to be available and acceptable it must be a political one, which can only be achieved through candid, not pre-conditioned, dialogue. Lebanon, as well as every nation affected by the Syrian crisis, has to seek a political solution in Syria.”
