Hezbollah urges mass turnout for Ahmadinejad
The Shiite militant group Hezbollah on Saturday called for a mass turnout to welcome Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he arrives on a two-day official visit to Lebanon next week.
“We call on you to welcome President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday at 7:30 am (0430 GMT) all along the airport road,” the group’s Al-Manar television broadcast over a picture of a smiling Iranian leader.
“Lebanon is the country of resistance — welcome to your family,” said the voice-over to the television spot, which was signed by both Hezbollah and Amal, another Lebanese Shiite party that is allied to the “party of God.”
Ahmadinejad’s October 13-14 visit is eagerly anticipated by Hezbollah, which is planning to give him a warm welcome as well as a tour of the southern border region with Israel.
However, the trip has sparked controversy in Lebanon with some members of the pro-Western parliamentary majority calling it a provocation and the United States also expressing concern.
Ahmadinejad and Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah are set to appear together at a rally in a stadium in Hezbollah’s stronghold in southern Beirut.
