ヒズボライラクに戦闘員派遣認める 「イスラム国」非難
2015/2/17 11:38

レバノンからの報道によると、同国のイスラム教シーア派組織ヒズボラの指導者ナスララ師は16日の支持者向け演説で、スンニ派の過激派組織「イスラム国」が北部や西部を支配するイラクに「限定的な」数の戦闘員を派遣していることを初めて明らかにした。

 ナスララ師はイスラム国や、シリアの国際テロ組織アルカイダ系「ヌスラ戦線」が「地域に脅威をもたらしている」と非難し、両組織とも「本質、思想は同じだ」と指摘。ペルシャ湾岸諸国がイスラム国掃討のための有志連合に参加する一方、ヌスラ戦線に武器や資金を提供していると批判した。

Lebanon’s Hezbollah acknowledges battling the Islamic State in Iraq

February 16

 

The leader of Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement acknowledged for the first time Monday that the Shiite militia has sent fighters to Iraq, and he urged Arab states throughout the region to set aside sectarian rivalries to confront the threat posed by the Islamic State.

In a videotaped speech delivered to followers in Beirut’s southern suburbs, Hasan Nasrallah called on the region’s traditional American allies to abandon their reliance on the United States and instead align with Hezbollah — and by implication with its sponsor Iran — to defeat the Sunni extremists.

“He who relies on the Americans relies on an illusion. You rely on someone who is stealing from you and conniving against you,” he said.

The speech was unusual in its scope, even for Nasrallah, who regularly delivers addresses in which he articulates his thoughts, typically with a focus on Lebanon and Hezbollah’s arch-enemy, Israel. In this instance, he portrayed the Islamic State as the most serious immediate threat to the region’s stability, although he also repeated the common charge that the Islamic State is working on Israel’s behalf.

He cited Iraq and Syria as evidence that Hezbollah and its allies are the only ones who are effectively fighting the Islamic State, and he described the U.S. response as too slow and insufficient.

“We won’t wait for the Americans, nor will we wait for NATO. In Iraq, they didn’t wait,” he said, describing how local tribes and militias, which refer to themselves as popular mobilization forces, had taken up arms there to hold back the Islamic State advance.

“Until now, the Americans aren’t giving them arms,” he said. “All of the arms are coming from Iran.”

At a time when Iran-backed Shiite militias are leading the fight in Iraq against the Islamic State, as well as against the rebels in Syria, he appeared to be trying to cajole the Sunni Arab world into recognizing their ascendant role.
