Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary general of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah, has condemned the deadly terror attacks by the Daesh Takfiri group in Paris.

He also offered his condolences to the families of the victims of the deadly assaults in Paris, in which assailants struck at least six different venues in and around the French capital. The Takfiri Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which killed nearly 130 people. Referring to a recent deadly bombing in Lebanon, Nasrallah noted that the Middle East is also suffering from terrorism, adding that such acts only increase “our determination to fight” the terrorists in Syria.

Lebanon, Iraq and France all suffered ISIL terror attacks in the last week. However, the West has spent time, money and energy condemning, eulogising, remembering, mourning and maintaining awareness of only the attacks in France. It seems as though the West’s reactions to the attacks in France have been nothing short of knee-jerk, paranoid, unintelligent, Islamophobic, warmongering and absurd.
