Hezbollah's Founder lashes out at Hezbollah

Sheikh Subhi Tufaili, the Founder of Hezbollah and its first Secretary General, just lashed out at Hezbollah:

Hizbullah founder and ex leader Sheikh
Subhi Tufaili on Saturday accused Iran of stirring trouble between
Shiites and Sunnis to destroy both Iraq and Lebanon, urging Shiites to
mend fences with the majority Sunni sect.
Tufaili at a news conference said Shiites
are "small minorities scattered in the vast sea of the Islamic world.
It is in their interest to be allies for the majority and to mend
fences with Sunnis."

"Otherwise, we will destroy even our future… this is crazy…we'll be slaughtered like sheep even in Lebanon. This is a reality."

He said Iran's spiritual leader Ali
Khamenei has a dual policy. "In Iraq, he destroys Iraq under the slogan
of alliance with America and in Lebanon he destroys Lebanon under the
slogan that says the Sunnis are the allies of America."

He stressed Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is the person who carries out Khamenei's policy.

I am an ex-secretary general for Hizbullah
and I know that Sayyed Hassan is in charge of carrying Sayyed
Khamenei's policy in Lebanon. Sayyed Abdul Aziz al Hakim is the person
who executes Khamenei's policy in Iraq."

He accused Hizbullah, of which he was fired
more than eight years ago after disagreeing with the Iranian
leadership, of forming its own state in Lebanon and "the resistance is
its weapon."

"There cannot be two states and two
weapons, that of Hizbullah and that of the government. We need to unify
the weapons under one command. Two states would lead to war," he said.

Hopefully someone will listen…

    “In Iraq, he destroys Iraq under the slogan
    of alliance with America and in Lebanon he destroys Lebanon under the
    slogan that says the Sunnis are the allies of America.”

    Patently obvious, now hopefully some APU dwellers will see it.

    hehehe the irony,
    SM you realize that it the US marines barracks attack was carried while Tufaily’s was Hizballah’s leader as were most of the kidnappings of westerners during the 80s.

    He is probably still pissed at Nasrallah since Nasrallah condemned the 9-11 attacks (instead of siding the Shia fundamentalists on the same side as the Sunnies fundamentalists)…

    As weird as this may sound to an outsider, Nasrallah is the “moderate” between the two.

    He’s still a terrorist and the founder of a terrorist organization, and he wants to destroy Israel.

    I guess not wanting to destroy his own country is a start, but it would be better if people would listen to more rational voices.

    A Leb,

    You’re right. That does sound weird. But you’re probably right.
