BEIRUT: Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblatt said he and Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah agree that Israel’s fundamental principle was the logic of power and killing.

“Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah and I have reached a common conviction that the logic of Israel is the logic of power, arrogance and killing,” Jumblatt said in remarks published Monday by the local newspaper As-Safir.

He cited the 1982 Israeli siege of Beirut followed by the Sabra and Shatila massacres and the 1996 Qana massacre and the successive wars.

Jumblatt met Nasrallah for more than two hours Saturday night. The two leaders discussed the Israeli war on Gaza, the presidential election crisis in Lebanon and the turmoil in Syria and Iraq.

The Druze MP said he had a desire to meet Nasrallah to “hear his assessment [on Gaza], particularly since Palestine is the core [issue] for the Arab and Islamic world.”

“We have reached a common conclusion that Hamas and Gaza will come out victorious," he said.

Nasrallah Friday vowed “all means of support” for Gaza.
