“Even if he believes he’s a saint.”
“Lebanese Minister Marwan Hamada: Nasrallah Is a Spy for Iran,” from MEMRI (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese MP Marwan Hamada, which aired on Press TV on February 25, 2008.
Marwan Hamada: Unfortunately, this poor Lebanese ruling authority and government, as you say, has no tapping system. If somebody taps… If somebody created a whole network, parallel to the state, spying on the state, it is Hizbullah. So, [don’t make me] return the accusation to him [Nasrallah]: He’s a spy for Iran. I am not a spy for anybody.
Interviewer: He’s a spy…
Hamada: For Iran.
Interviewer: For Iran. And you’re not a spy…
Hamada: For anybody.
Interviewer: For not… You’re not…
Hamada: For Lebanon. I defend my country. I defend my independence, I defend my democracy, I defend my integrity, and I will not accept anybody impeding on it — even if he believes he’s a saint.
