Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah vowed Thursday that the opposition's protests would continue until it achieved a bigger share of the Cabinet, but he also said he was prepared to negotiate and violence was not an option. In a rousing speech delivered on huge screens in two central Beirut squares, Nasrallah told thousands of supporters that they would eventually achieve their goal of bringing down the government of Prime Minister Fuad Saniora. "We are a people that will not be defeated in the battle of wills," he said. "Negotiate with us and we will talk to you," Nasrallah said, addressing what he called the "illegitimate government. But in the name of all those gathered here, we will not leave the streets before achieving the goal that saves Lebanon," he said, to roars of approval from the crowd.
