Hezbollah says Kurdish vote a step toward wider Mideast partition

Hezbollah says Kurdish vote a step toward wider Mideast partitionThe powerful Lebanese group Hezbollah said on Saturday that an Iraqi Kurdish independence vote marked a first step toward the partition of the Middle East, warning that this would lead to “internal wars” and must be opposed. Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, head of the Iran-backed group, said events in northern Iraq, where Kurds overwhelmingly voted for independence on Monday, were a threat to the whole region and not just Iraq and neighboring states with Kurdish populations. “It will open the door to partition, partition, partition,” Nasrallah said.
