Hizb’Allah calls for political solution in Syria

A few weeks back, there were rumors that Hizb’Allah was asking for a ceasefire with the al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda) in SYria. They have suffered losses at at their former al-Qaeda allies. Then last week, Hizb’Allah met with a Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood member. Now, Nasrallah appears to be throwing his ally Assad under the bus. He is calling for political solution to the Syrian war.

BEIRUT, LebanonHassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, openly urged the Lebanese government on Thursday to take a more active role in finding a political solution to the civil war in neighboring Syria and to open its border to refugees to avert further bloodshed.

Mr. Nasrallah and the Hezbollah group have kept their loyalty to Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, an Alawite, relatively low-key. Fighters from the movement cross the border to fight for the president, and some have been sent to protect areas important to Shiites, analysts say. With the frontier between Syria and Lebanon weakly controlled, there are concerns that it could be the focus of confrontations with Sunni fighters in a possible regional conflict.

Hezbollah officials strongly deny that the group is fighting in Syria, although Mr. Nasrallah has said that Hezbollah was providing assistance in protecting people of Lebanese heritage in Syrian villages along the border.

Hizb’Allah sees which way the winds are blowing. The al-Nusra Front have said The Hezzies are their next target. Rather than wait for a showdown, Nasrallah is trying to cut a deal. He will throw Iran under the bus and accept subservient whatever role the Muslim Brotherhood will give Hizb’Allah in the Caliphate.
