Syrian activists mock Hassan Nasrallah in a new video on YouTube for what they say are the double standards of the leader of the Shia resistance movement Hezbollah.
In the video, part of an online series called "Even a Goat can Fly," a masked woman is seen standing with the slogan "Free Syria" displayed behind her. Israel’s ynetnews reports she is presented as someone who was "deployed in Syria by external enemies," as she begins to poke fun at the Hezbollah leader.
"Since the beginning of the Syrian upheaval, the position of the honorable Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has been clear: He is against the Syrian revolution," the presenter says. "He supported the Egyptian upheaval, the Libyan upheaval, Tunisia, Yemen and of course – the upheaval in Bahrain [where the Shiite majority revolted against the Sunni regime], but here he was against it. Why? Why, you "Sheikh of resistance?"
In the video parts of Nasrallah's speeches are presented in which he explained why he backs the Syrian regime on the one hand, but also supported the protesters in Bahrain.
