Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah strongly denounced the latest crime committed in France, while stressing that Islam prohibits the killing of the innocent.
He said all Muslims agree on glorifying and defending the dignity of Prophet Mohammad, yet they reject blaming every individual crime on Islam:
Hezbollah’s leader called on France to reevaluate their stances and policies to see where they are responsible for the current crimes.
Observers stress that it is the same policy that created Daesh that is now creating that hatred against Islam.
Lebanon has been one of the countries where anger is mounting over France’s anti-Islam rhetoric. Protesters held a rally facing the residence of the French ambassador denouncing the French president’s defense of offensive caricatures of Prophet Muhammad.
Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said France and the west harbor the same takfiri terrorism which is now committing crimes in Europe and all over the world. He called on France to address the roots of the problem instead of making anti-Islam accusations.
