The Hezbollah terror organization has welcomed the West’s nuclear deal with Iran as a game changer that will advance the Islamic agenda in the Middle East.
The Hezbollah terror organization in Lebanon was overjoyed at the announcement of the signing of the nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 Powers, calling it “a huge victory” and “an historic turning point” that can shift the balance of power in the region and globally, MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) reports.
The Lebanese daily Al-Akhbar, which is close to Hezbollah, a terror group supported by the Islamic Republic and considered its ally, celebrated “the surrender of the West” with a series of anti-American articles, devoting large sections of the newspaper to the nuclear agreement.
The front page featured the headline, “[Yes] We Can” – a play on the famous Obama campaign slogan – which the daily claimed was a motto of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic, dating back to the 1960s, when he began his struggle against the Shah’s regime.
In an article titled “Death To America,” Ibrahim Al-Amin, head of the Al-Akhbar board of directors, called on the “oppressed Arab peoples” to learn a lesson from the “Iranian achievement” and to “work to remove Western and American hegemony worldwide.” The Arabs should understand that vanquishing the West, Israel and the Arab regimes hostile to “the resistance axis” is now possible, he wrote, adding that they “must act accordingly.”
“It is no longer difficult to be rid of the hegemonic world order; it is no longer impossible to topple the Zionist regime in Palestine; and it is no longer tough to topple what is left of the Arab regimes of ignorance and failure. What Iran has achieved vis-à-vis the West puts us back at square one, where we must raise our voices and shout at the top of our lungs a single slogan: ‘Death to America,'” Al-Amin concluded.
Other articles in the paper also stated that the nuclear agreement strengthened Iran and boosted its influence in the region. One even called on the Arabs to recognize the rise of “the era of Iran” in the region and the waning of the “black Saudi era.”
Iran and Hezbollah ‘Committed’ to Anti-Israel Agenda
The head of the Hezbollah political party in the Lebanese parliament, Muhammad Ra’d, discussing the nuclear agreement at a Hezbollah memorial service for terrorists, said that “Iran has started a new page [in the history] of the world with the agreement that it reached with the superpowers.”
The deal has changed “many equations and balances of power” and the world is “destined to change,” he stated. “The world now recognizes a force [i.e. Iran]…that, during 11 years of negotiations, not just over the past two, succeeded in humiliating the world’s ruling powers.”
Iran has become an international deal-making diplomatic force, he continued. “However, it will absolutely not recognize Israel, the entity that stole Jerusalem and Palestine, and no one can forget this. Iran has said this and is committed to it.”
Articles in the official Syrian press also called the agreement a major victory for the entire “resistance axis,” including Syria and Hezbollah, as well as a surrender by the US and the West and a crushing defeat for Arab countries, primarily Saudi Arabia.

The US Congress must ensure that sanctions against Iran remain in force until the nuclear threat is completely eliminated.
