As he voiced support to the “legitimate demands” of anti corruption protesters in Lebanon,

Hezbollah’s State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Mohammad Fneish, urged those protesters to have “clear and realistic demands,” in order to achieve the change they have been calling for in Lebanon.
“It is the right of some to call for a change in the regime and a revolution, all these slogans are pretty; but, what is needed are the tools for change. That is why protestors must have clear and realistic demands, if they want some of these demands to be achieved," Fneish said during a funeral ceremony in south Lebanon.

Meanwhile, he stressed that those who are responsible for the corruption must be held accountable, refusing the dissemination of responsibility on all politicians.

"Generalizing responsibility means that we do not want to hold someone accountable," Fneish said, dubbing such an act as "lacking courage in pinpointing responsibility."

The Syrian State has the right to invite those who defend the Syrian people, said H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad in his recent interview with the Lebanese al-Manar Satellite TV, describing His Eminence Hezbollah Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah as the genuine, sincere, principled honest and transparent resistant Leader. The Syrians are indeed indebted to their Hezbollah brothers in blood and destiny. When the wahabi Al-Qaeda affiliates and cannibals invaded the sacred Syria of tolerance, amity, secularity, the Syrians have been left a prey along with their culture, heritage, mosques, churches, synagogues and other worship places.

Thus, Syrians bow in respect for those heroes who brave every danger to save a child, c…
