Nasrallah: Some said that the army fulfilled its duty during the Mar Mikhael incidents. Is it normal that the army shoots at demonstrators?
Nasrallah: The pro-government party was provoking the army against the opposition.
Nasrallah: Even if the demonstration reflected the bad intentions of Hezbollah and Amal, would this justify the killing of 7 people?
Nasrallah: The incidents at Dahiyeh must be seen in a context different than the ones of previous demonstrations, hence the importance of a serious investigation in order to discover the real reason behind the incidents.

Nasrallah: After the assassination of Hariri, MP Saad Hariri said he was committed to his father’s words.
Nasrallah: Hariri told me that if a final settlement is achieved while he is prime minister he will demand Hezbollah to disarm. If we would not accept he would resign and leave the country for he does not accept to turn
Nasrallah: Ex-Premier Rafiq Hariri told me before he was assassinated that he supported the Resistance until after a just peace is achieved.
Nasrallah: So far the state is not able to reply to the Israeli enemy.
Aoun: As long as we possess weapons, why give them up?

Aoun: In his speech on March 8 2005, Nasrallah had chosen a difficult path.
Nasrallah: The slogan of 10425 Km square is not restricted to one party. I used this slogan to confirm the end of the civil war and the annexation of the Chebaa Farms.
Nasrallah: At the time of the Quadripartite alliance in 2005 the disagreement was over the Christian ally.
Nasrallah: MPs Saad Hariri and Walid Jumblatt had offered much more than Aoun over Hezbollah’s weapons.
