Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah urged Lebanese authorities to ‘open the sea’ in order to flood Europe with a new wave of migrants.

Nasrallah made the remarks during a televised address at a rally marking the eighth anniversary of the assassination of late Hezbollah Resistance military commander Mustafa Badreddine.

The militant leader called for “a national decision that says: we have opened the sea… whoever wants to leave for Europe, for Cyprus, the sea is in front of you. Take a boat and board it.”

The comments are part of an effort to put pressure on the European Union, which announced earlier this month $1 billion in aid to Lebanon to pay for the country to keep Syrian migrants within its borders.

However, there is rising anti-Syrian sentiment within Lebanon, which is currently home to 2 million Syrians, the world’s highest number of refugees per capita. Natives angry at their presence have staged riots.

Lebanon’s economy collapsed in 2019, prompting many of the migrants living there to attempt to head to Europe illegally on small boats.

Nasrallah pointed out that under Lebanon’s agreement with the EU, migrants “are prohibited (from leaving), and so they turn to smuggling and to rubber boats, and there are drownings in the sea, because the Lebanese army is implementing a political decision to stop them from migrating.”

Many Lebanese are angry that the EU money amounts to a bribe to keep displaced Syrians from heading to Europe.

Nasrallah’s comments once again emphasize how migrants are routinely used as a political weapon against western countries.

The wave is mostly comprised of young men who the media falsely labels “refugees,” when in fact most are economic migrants and cause huge problems wherever they go.

Last month, we highlighted how establishment news outlets ludicrously blamed Vladimir Putin for weaponizing migrants to destabilize the west.

In reality, western European countries made the decision to not impose stricter border controls while incentivizing boat migrants to make the journey by offering them free accommodation, healthcare and other benefits at taxpayer expense.
