Nasrallah declares Lebanese election win for Iran-backed Shiite bloc

HIzballah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah Monday claimed victory for the Shiite bloc backed by Iran in Lebanon’s first parliamentary election since 2009. Before official results were declared, he declared they guaranteed the protection of the “resistance” against Israel. The Shiite bloc is estimated to have gained 68 seats in the 128-seat parliament, whereas prime minister Saad Hariri’s Sunni group, the Future Party, dropped from 31 to 21 mandates. He alleged an attempt had been made to liquidate his pro-Western party.

    That’s funny, the CBC news in Canada is reporting the opposite results…must be the Canadian mainstream media misleading the public – again – and protecting our snowflakes from bad news lest we all become raving “Islamophobes” …and to ensure that the Canadian government continues on with the Islamicide (death by importing as much Islamist ideology as well as an overwhelming number of its adherents in the quickest time possible).
