Bahraini writer Abdullah Aljunaid said in a November 20, 2021 interview on Russia Today that Hassan Nasrallah, whom he referred to as the "sayyed of garbage," has turned Lebanon into a garbage dump. He commented that Beirut used to be a "lighthouse of science and culture." He criticized Hizbullah, which he called a "cancerous political party," and he said that it is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Arabs in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia. He also questioned how Hizbullah could be considered a resistance movement if it has killed far more Arabs than it has Israelis. For more about Abdullah Aljunaid, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 8740.

Journalist: "Your colleague says that the only problem that the Gulf countries have with Hizbullah is that it is a resistance party that did what the Gulf regimes had failed to do."

Abdullah Aljunaid: "What did the Gulf countries fail to do? Turn Beirut into a garbage dump? Beirut, which used to be a lighthouse of science and culture, was turned into ruins by Hassan Nasrallah. Is this considered an achievement?


"How has this cancerous political party managed to distort everything Lebanese?

"As for the resistance you are talking about – does training terrorists and sending them to kill our children in Bahrain, in Saudi Arabia, in Kuwait, in Iraq, and in Syria constitute resistance? How many Israelis has Hizbullah killed, compared to the hundreds of thousands of Arabs [it has killed] from Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia?

"If you want to talk about resistance, go back to your sayyed of garbage, who has turned Lebanon in its entirety into a garbage dump."
