Shiite Lebanese Scholar Muhammad Ali Al-Husseini Calls to Revoke Nasrallah’s Citizenship

Published on Mar 19, 2018 by the MEMRI TV Videos YouTube channel – On March 13, Shiite Lebanese cleric Muhammad Ali Al-Husseini called upon the State of Lebanon to revoke the citizenship of Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, saying that the latter’s “slips of the tongue,” when he reportedly said that the Rule of the Jurisprudent was above the Lebanese constitution, constituted “clear collaboration of a Lebanese with a foreign country.” The report, broadcast by the Iranian Farda News website earlier that day and sparking heated debate in Lebanon, was denied by Hizbullah’s media office. Sheikh Al-Husseini, who heads the Arab Islamic Council in Lebanon and is known for his opposition to Hizbullah, accused Iran of founding Hizbullah as a movement of “guns for hire,” thus putting the entire Shiite sect in danger. Sheikh Al-Husseini’s statements were broadcast by the Al-Arabiya network.
