There is no strong party at Israel’s helm, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Friday in response to the results of the general elections which were held in Israel Tuesday, adding that the absence of significant parties from the ballot was conspicuous.
“There is no strong party in Israel, contrary to what [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu had hoped,” Nasrallah said. “The elections did not yield any new party to lead this entity.”
The Hezbollah leader said that although the Israeli public had “serious trust issues” regarding Netanyahu, he was elected because there was “no other choice.” He said that all parties in Israel, both right and left, were “misleadingly identical.”
He added that the Israeli election results proved that “the only guarantee to Palestine is resistance.”
Nasrallah said that while Netanyahu had hoped to assert himself as a strong leader and had tried to build a strong party, it was former prime minister Ariel Sharon, who underwent a pre-scheduled brain scan Friday, who would be “the last king of Israel.”
