Following are excerpts from an interview with former Lebanese MP Mustafa Alloush, which aired on LBC TV on February 16, 2012:

Mustafa Alloush: Hitler also... I have the right to say this. I heard you out.

Interviewer: As far as you are concerned, Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah is like Hitler?

Mustafa Alloush: He can be compared to Goebbels…

Interviewer: Okay. You see him as a Nazi, a Fascist.

Mustafa Alloush: He does not run the show. The show is run from Iran, by Sayyid Khamenei and the ideology founded by Imam Khomeini. In my opinion, their ideology is similar to that of the Nazi leader. [Hitler] also viewed it as an enterprise for the future of civilization, which would unite all. Alexander the Great and Napoleon at one point believed in the same thing. They thought that if they conquered and united the world, it would be beneficial for the future. In fact, it turned out that you cannot limit the world to the confines of your own perspective. Society is pluralistic, and it will remain so, no matter what.

Interviewer: I think that the worst attack on Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah is to compare him to…

Mustafa Alloush: Let's examine his style and his conduct… I respect the man. Don't think I don't.
