Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's criticism of the Bahraini government should not negatively affect Lebanese that are working there or in other Gulf countries, Prime Minister Tammam Salam said Sunday, in a bid to quell tensions over comments made by Hezbollah's leader earlier this month.When asked whether the latest developments, particularly the very public bickering going on following Nasrallah's comments in a Jan. 9 speech, would affect the government's work and its ties with Bahrain and its neighbors, Salam said this was not the first time the government had dealt with such problems.Salam's comments are the most recent in a wave of Lebanese political reactions – not all condemnatory – to Nasrallah's comments following the Arab League's provocative statement on the issue last Thursday.
