Nasrallah spoke on a show that aired on OTV (Lebanon), on September 24, 2021. The host of the show said that “nobody rules out the theory” that it was Israel that bombed the Beirut Port, but that the Lebanese people deserve to know the truth behind the events. In response, Nasrallah recounted the story of the 19th century Christian priest who was supposedly kidnapped by Jews, and his blood was used “for something.” He said: “Whenever there are scandals related to these things, the truth is gone.”
