Hezbollah escalaltes its attack against Hariri Tribunal

As Lebanon waits for the Special Tribunal for Lebanon indictment over the killing of Lebanon’s former prime minister Rafik Hariri Hezbollah relaunched another threat campaign against the Tribunal .

Hezbollah politburo member Mahmoud Qmati said today: “When we say that the issuance of the indictment might cause unrest, that does not mean that we are plotting a coup. There is no force on earth that can weaken or besiege the Resistance.”

MP Hasan Fadlallah who represents Hezbollah said on Saturday : ” We know how to protect our Resistance, how to defend it and how to face these conspiracies that are being plotted against our country. Those who are conspiring against Lebanon and the Resistance are the ones who have to worry.”

Deputy Head of Hezbollah’s Executive Council, Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said on Saturday:” The Opposition will turn the indictment into a burden for those behind it. Those who fabricated false witnesses are the same ones who fabricated false evidence.”

Ali Abdullah Hussein, Youth and Sports Minister of Lebanon who represents the Amal Movement ( Hezbollah key ally) said on Saturday: “I don’t know how the cabinet would discuss the issue of false witnesses which has been used to mislead the investigation into Hariri’s murder.”

Former minister Wiam Wahhab a staunch ally of Syria and Hezbollah told New TV on Saturday that Prime Minister Saad Hariri will not remain the country’s PM if he continues to support the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

“A Lebanese agreement by the Lebanese people alone will not lead anywhere. We are waiting for the Syrian-Saudi efforts, but optimism has decreased ,” he said.

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Sheikh Naim Qassem said on Saturday that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL) is controlled by Israel and the US, National News Agency (NNA) reported.

“The STL lacks the minimum standards of justice and credibility… What it caused in the past five years shows that the tribunal has deviated from its course of justice . It therefore serves intelligence bodies… and is targeted against the Resistance”

“According to us, the tribunal does not exist,” Qassem said, adding that it does not have an authority over Lebanon.

The March 8 coalition has done all it can do, but Prime Minister Saad Hariri and his party are the ones responsible for coming up with a settlement that can save Lebanon from the “scarecrow” that is the STL, he added.

MP Mohammad Raad who represents Hezbollah

“Everyone must bear the results if the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL)’s indictment is issued without a compromise,” adding said the party is stronger than the attempted plots targeting it, according to National News Agency (NNA) .

“Lebanon’s image will gradually change if a domestic understanding is not reached.” He said

Not effective

March 14 General Coordinator Fares Soueid said on Saturday that Hezbollah’s “threatening logic” will not yield solutions to the current Lebanese impasse.

“Hezbollah’s logic is not effective in resolving current disputes,” Soueid told LBCI television.

He also reiterated March 14’s commitment to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL).

Tension in Lebanon

Tension escalated in Lebanon following reports that the Special Tribunal for Lebanon will soon issue its indictment into the 2005 assassination of Lebanon’s former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Last July, the Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that the tribunal is “an Israeli project” that will indict Hezbollah members. Nasrallah accused Israel of being behind Hariri’s assassination but refused to provide the evidence to STL to support his claim. Hezbollah and its March 8 allies have been calling for the abolition of STL.

Some leaders are concerned that should the court indict Hezbollah members, it could lead to a Shiite-Sunni strife.

The Pro Syrian Al Akhbar newspaper reported earlier in the month that Hezbollah has prepared a plan to take over Lebanon when STL issues its indictment for the 2005 murder of the late Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun , (a close ally of Hezbollah ) said on November 18 that Hezbollah might violently respond to an STL indictment that accuses Hezbollah party’s members in Hariri’s assassination.

On December 7 a leading Israeli Military Intelligence official expressed concerns that Hezbollah might seize control of Lebanese government institutions .

“Dozens will be killed when Hezbollah uses force and takes over government institutions,” senior Military Intelligence official Colonel Yossi Adler told the Knesset in ‘a possible scenario if Hezbollah is indicted by STL.’

    prophet that is true but i will say that most of them are or has worked with israel. and most if not all of march 14 wants israel to start another war with hezbollah to TRY to defeat them.

    btw i dont waste my time on trash who dont know politics at all

    • Hannibal

      You mean “who don’t know politics at all” or “who don’t know YOUR politics at all”? LOL
      Trash is a strong word for calling your compatriots even though you do not see eye to eye with them. I mean you never called the Zionists trash but you call your fellow Lebanese people that JUST for seeing the world from another angle.
      Here is the gist of it all. You can summarize it by East and West. It is a tug of war between cultures and wealth and land control. Lebanon is in the center of this knot because of the schism between brothers. Lebanon has been looking for that identity since the beginning of time if you would. That is not only defined by recent history. By recent history I mean since the 1900s. Lebanon has been struggling with its identity since Phoenicians dwelled its lands and reached the end of the Earth. So recently (as of the end of the civil war) we saw a new emergence of a great party (although I do take offense at the inclusion of the word Islamic resistance the same way I take offense at the Christian resistance as opposed to the PURELY Lebanese resistance) which redefined the word struggle and shamed ALL Arab regimes with few fighters to defeat an Israeli army that had the illusion of never to be defeated because of the conspiracies of those regimes. However, many of us Lebanese, in the MIDDLE, who do not see ourselves neither WEST nor EAST, nor do we see ourselves 8 or 14 but 22s, are frankly tired NO strike that, are actually exhausted, with this senseless tug between sects whose members give only a lip service to their corresponding religions, and we, the silent majority who see our country hijacked by the U.S / Israel / Saudi axis of evil or the Syrian / Iranian axis of evil and we do not like neither because we want to simply exist…….. as Lebanese. For the Love of God stop this nonsense, I and my fellow Lebanese want to go back Home.

        so u think its wrong for me to call people who are againt hezbollah for defending lebanon. ill give u 3 reasons y they are truley trash.
        1. they want the army to defend lebanon yet they wont except modern weapons from iran.
        2. they think hezbollah is trying to take over lebanon when in reality everyone knows they are capable of taking over the country in a day.
        3. even your own defense ministry of all people gave advice to isreal on how to defeat hezbollah.
        and u dont want me to call them trash who are u kidding. our fighters put there lives on the line to put lebanon and freedom in the same sentence and this is what they get in return. give me a break

        • Hannibal

          But here lays the problem, you call them “our” fighters as in Shiastan is “within” Lebanon. I thought they would serve better as Lebanese fighters. Hezbollah can take Israel before taking over Lebanon. It is easy to gobble up Lebanon but impossible to digest my friend. Ask the Syrians, Palestinians, French, Turk Ottomans, Mamluks, Arabs, Byzantines, Romans, Greeks, Persians, Akkadians, Babylonians, and any others who dared hegemony over Lebanon. Even the Israelis on their way out said we are glad to be back on Israeli soil because anything North (meaning Lebanon) is cursed.
          Besides, take over Lebanon? doesn’t that make you non-Lebanese? How can a Lebanese take over Lebanon? It is theirs to begin with. Get out of your polarization dude before it is too late…

    Jnoubi you and Hezbollah are nothing but pure terrorist. You’re Lebanon #1 enemy and your gangs of hezbollah. You think just because you defended your turf does it make you a resistance fighter? you only defended your area and you were doing it because you have a bigger agenda than protecting Lebanon. You’re like those muslims extremists who do not have any respect or regards for their country. All you care about extending the Iranians rules to Lebanon and how else can you become all high and mighty without their help. To us March 14th you have have proved nothing but traitors and thugs and criminals and that’s how you acting now after fighting israelis in the 80’s. After that all you wanted to prove that you’re mighty and strong and have no respect for Lebanese or lebanon sovreingty. You’re nothing but bunch of selfish idiots who promotes terrorists and protect them too. You’re jackasses keep saying we’re not afraid of the STL but they keep threatening everyone. If you’re not afraid then stop terrorizing people and stop saying you’re going to wreak havoc if the STL indicted Hezbollah. Then just stay in your area and protect yourself. March 14th is not capable of fighting you and neither is the Lebanese gov’t capable of arresting any members if indicted. So stop these threats and behave like the resistance you think you’re. You have brought nothing but total destruction to Lebanon and if stupid person like cannot see it. then we’re doomed because its seems idiots like you, Prophet and Cathy are nothing but bunch of morons who can’t see beyond their noses. You can scream and shout and threatens all you like. Destruction you will bring and destruction you will have. In the end nobody is going to win. You want the best for Lebanon then shut up and work to mend fences but destroy them. Even hariri is willing to accept few members to be indicated and not accuse the whole Gestapo organization of hezbollah. Go to hell you and them and i hope you and Israel destroy each other and take Syria and Iran with you Inshallah soon.
