Jumblatt: Lebanon is not Gaza

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt  revealed on Monday his initiative for ending Lebanon tension  which calls for   rejecting the use of  Lebanon by Iran to improve  its negotiating  position with the western countries over its nuclear program, and  rejecting the use of Lebanon  as a base  to   fight Iran.

“Lebanon is not the Gaza Strip; we do not want the Islamic Republic  of Iran  to use Lebanon to improve improve  its negotiating  position with the US, and we do not want some of the Arab  countries  to use Lebanon to fight Iran,” Jumblatt said.

There is growing concern in Lebanon and the Arab world that Iran is increasingly  trying to rely  on the use of militant groups such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza to improve its negotiating  position with the US and the west  over its nuclear program.

Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah defended Iran during the weekend and warned against regarding it as an enemy . Nasrallah also boasted about Hezbollah’s capabilities  and warned Israel that he has rockets to reach every  one of its cities .

Here is a summary of Jumblatt’s initiative :

–  He  reiterated the importance of Dialogue to resolve the current political impasse in Lebanon.

“Only dialogue can serve Lebanon, and not fiery rhetoric,” Jumblatt said

– He  called for  following  the advice of international powers over the change of government in Lebanon , “which says  that the cabinet can be changed only if the circumstances were suitable for such change.”

– He stressed if efforts fail to form a national unity cabinet  and if the current cabinet  falls, he would still nominate Prime Minister Najib Mikati  to form a new cabinet.

– He  called for abiding by the disassociation policy  and  accused  Hezbollah and some March 14 parties  of  continuing to  participate in the conflict in neighboring Syria.

“The resistance [Hezbollah] is not abiding by the disassociation policy slogan… and some of the March 14 parties fight in Syria [without realizing that] they are tools in a conflict that is greater than Lebanon,” Jumblatt said.

– Jumblatt  cautioned against  reminding  Hezbollah at every occasion that its  members were indicted by the UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon for involvement in in the murder of former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri.

“Is it necessary to remind  Hezbollah of  STL’s indictment every time and everywhere? Don’t some people realize that this reminder would further increase the split between the two [Muslim] sects?” Jumblatt asked.

He called on Hezbollah to present the proof  it claimed it has on Israeli involvement in Hariri murder  to the UN backed tribunal and urged the militant group to go to the court and defend its members

The Netherlands-based court indicted four Hezbollah members in Hariri’s killing. However, Hezbollah strongly denied the charges and continues to refuse  to cooperate with the court.

    Jumblatt is a smart man ,he knows where to hit the nail. As a representative from  a minority sect Jumblatt needs to play the game and he does that well. He knows that his father was murdered by the Syrian regime. The arrogant Syrian regime is now on the run and Jumblatt knows that next on the line of fire is hezbushaitan. No one really targeted this satanic Majoosi rather they are becoming the target of the sunnis for being the bully boy. Killing the sunnis in Syria and Lebanon and barking like a dog against Israel. What a hypocrite and he think that the sunnis buy those trash.Interesting time ahead as the Syrian mujaheddin is advancing faster than expected. Allah Hu Akhbar.

          you quote a biblical passage that in its context points out 2 important points, 1 is that jesus is not god and a seperate entity and most important that being the son of god and messiah he set an example of humility and rejected prestige as he did in several occasions like washing the feet of others, further he did not partake in politics but  put emphasis  and hope on gods kingdom as the only solution  for his followers and all mankind… not lebanese politics or any for that matter.

          but you are right, god is greater than anything you see in the world today, whether it is lebanon gaza or syria   the results do not reflect the greatness of god but the stupidity and lack of wisdom of arrogant men ,,,,, it is contrary for gods spirit and greatness to be involved  with this bloodshed and dispair and destruction of homes, famillies and misrepresentation of god by jews, christains, moslems alike are rampant,,, yes almost everyone of us misrepresents god and his greatness by how we conduct ourselves and yet claim association by simple token sayings but proving false in how we live and treat one another.

        ” Allah Hu Akhbar ” has no copyright act on it. The shia say Ya Hussain,Ya Fatima and Ya Ali ,kind of shia trinity. I hardly find them saying Allah Hu Akhbar and if they say it then it is good and the right way to glorify Allah. Thank you for reminding me and from now on I will try to end my writing with Allah Hu Akhbar.

        Mark 10:17-22 The Rich and the Kingdom of God
        17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’[a]”20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

        “No one is good—except God alone” yeah right and we say La Ilaha Illal la !!

          Wargame1, Jesus Christ, the perfect man who is the perfect reflexion/image of God (as we all humans were created on the image of God) was talking to a human so that the human can understand that only GOD is good. If only GOD is good then the perfect reflexion of GOD in the human body is also equally good. Yes La Ilaha illa allah who appeared in the human form to open the eyes of the BLIND and making them see the truth. Didn’t he also say, “who sees me sees my father in heaven”. Nobody ever saw GOD, so God send his only perfect image for people to see and believe in him, and still some did not believe in him because the devil is busy diverting humans from the real Messiah and God. Is this too difficult to understand ?

          Yes, I agree Allahu Akbar on all things and humans, including mohammad and his atheist family and his Saaleek friends. Yes his army and friends were the Saaleek of the Arabian peninsula; definition of Saaleek: Criminals rejected by their own tribes in the Arabian Peninsula who lived in groups attacking trade caravans to survive and steal their belongings and women).

          and god was a hypocrite for when he said thou shall not commit adultury, he forgot that he had it off with joseph’s wife.

          what’s the difference between sunnis and a shiites?
          the sunnis are the ones trying to blow the shiites out of themselves.

      Oh please war game, enough deification of the morrons.. this guy knows how to play the game of… cowards!!
      at least his father went all the way and died for the game he plaid, but what did this moron do but loose credibility every time he opened his big mouth???
      Please man, tell me one good thing that came from this liar. One day he’s hafez’s best buddy and the next he wants to put his son in jail and the third day he goes and kiss the hand of the son and now he wants to bite it again????? that’s not playing the game smartly, that’s lying your way around the events.
      tomorrow he’ll wake up with yet another contradictory proposal where he’ll call australian kangaroos to take power in Lebanon for the sake of the unity of the amazon’s crocodiles…

        He is representing the minority Druze sect and he has some responsibility for his people. What ever he says is correct and I have no objection. In the past when Bashar Al-Qaeda and the hezbushaitan were dominating the minority groups had to get along with those thugs but the time is changing so you wont be comfortable to see some change. For me I dont have any problem with this man. He can go any direction he likes. You can not stand it because you think how dare this man talk against hezbushaitan. Well I enjoy it. 

        • MekensehParty

          “whatever he says is correct?” Khalas? Final?
          That’s the definition of deification. When you present such final declaration, what’s the difference between you and an Iranian saying “everything khamenei says is correct”, or a hezbo saying “everything hasan says is correct” ???? 
          as for the rest of your argumentation it seems that you have not learned from the mistakes of the past, you are ready to trust the same person who betrayed you over and over again, and who can win you over again with a couple of words that you want to hear. Which reminds me of something I said a long time ago, if the lebanese people were not idiots they would not have leaders such as these who change their mind every minute and still find popular support.

    This initiative is nothing new that Mr. Jumblat is proposing. The only thing I retain from this alleged initiative is a message to Hariri that: Even if the government falls and Mikati resigns, he will still nominate Mikati as a PM. This is the message here. In other words: Screw you Saad !

    Also another reason for this “initiative” is to keep his regular “contribution” to the news and be visible and occupy the journalists and be on TV and have at least ONE Druze leader always in the current events.

    Finally I’ll support Wargame and Brutu (not sure about the nick) today and say: Allahu Akbar aala addajaleen like Jumblat!!!!  Lollllll
