In Human Rights, International, Middle East

In late March, while in Beirut, I had the opportunity to interview Ammar Al-Moussawi, Director of International Relations for the political wing of Hezbollah.

Al-Moussawi is a former member of the Lebanese Parliament. In 1988, his brother Jamil was killed in a battle with Israeli forces in south Lebanon. In the past several years, Al-Moussawi has met with ambassadors from Russia and Sweden and with a delegation from the European Parliament.

As far as I am aware, my interview of Al-Moussawi is the first interview of a senior Hezbollah official by a Canadian journalist.

Also, although Al-Moussawi is Director of International Relations for a key resistance organization in West Asia, no journalist from a major Western media organization appears to have interviewed Al-Moussawi.

Al-Moussawi and I had a wide-ranging discussion. We discussed Israel’s occupation of Lebanese lands, its genocidal war on Gaza, and the possibility of Jews and Arabs living peacefully together in a single state.

You can watch and listen to my interview with Ammar Al-Moussawi here:

(The Camera-work, editing and translation for this interview were done by Lebanese journalist, Hadi Hoteit.)

    Thanks for this interview. Real journalism should mean talking to all parties and listening to what they have to say. It is unbelievable that mainstream journalists do not interview Hezbollah.

    I would like to thank you for all your work in uncovering truth in the Middle East untainted by western political agendas. This recent trip has uncovered a wealth of knowledge.

    I attend a very activist church and have been doing some ‘educational work’ on western terrorist designated organizations. Your interview on Hezbollah has been forwarded widely. Thanks so much.

    I am still trying to find out how to ‘like’ your videos! Maybe I need to watch them on computer rather than my phone???

    Stay safe. You are very brave but fortunately also you appear to be very sensible.
