Former Lebanese MP Mustapha Allouch said in an October 11, 2021 interview on Sawt Beirut International (Lebanon) that Hizbullah and other such political parties or organizations were founded on destruction, and that while Hizbullah lacks any ideas about progress, the economy, or the future, "the people whom we confront outdo us in science, in production, in art, in music, in theater... They outdo us in all those things and more." He said: "The work of one musician like [American violinist] Yehudi Menuhin is far superior to [Hizbullah’s] welcome celebrations [for the Iranian fuel shipment]." For more information about Mustapha Allouch, see MEMRI TV clips Nos.8957, 7455, 6189, and 3200.

Mustapha Allouch: "Political parties or organizations like Hizbullah are founded on destruction. Show me one idea they have about progressing the economy, or the future. I see children in their schools, on Mother’s Day, out on a show about destroying an Israeli tank. The main idea is that..."

Interviewer: "This is resistance, Dr. Allouch."

Allouch: "True, but let me tell you again that this type of resistance differs from the way I see resistance. When I see that the people whom we confront outdo us in science, in production, in art, in music... in theater... They outdo us in all those things and more. They are much more important to the world. The work of one musician like Yehudi Menuhin is far superior to the entire welcome celebrations [for the Iranian fuel shipment]."
