Hariri: Resistance is no longer Hezbollah’s main purpose

Hariri slams governmentFormer Lebanese Prime Minister and current Future Movement leader MP Saad Hariri launched a vehement attack against the Hezbollah militant group for its alleged interference in the Syrian crisis.

“Where is this policy of dissociation that prevents the use of the Lebanese territories for interference in Syria, or is Hezbollah exempted from abiding by it,” Hariri said in a statement on Thursday.

“We weren’t speaking against the truth when we said that the resistance is no more the main purpose of Hezbollah but that there are other roles for its weapons.”

The opposition leader also lambasted the Lebanese government for not reacting to Hezbollah’s alleged attacks inside Syria.

He also criticized the claim that the Shiite group was defending the Shiite residents of Syria.

“If the allegations that Hezbollah was defending Shiite [Syrians] were proven true, this means that the party has been transformed into a militia that defends one section of the Lebanese community.”

“What would the role of the Lebanese Armed Forces be in this case?” the MP inquired.

“Has the government chosen to disassociate itself from Lebanese citizens that the party is saying are in danger?” he said.

“What is Hezbollah doing on the Syrian front and who gave it the authority to defend the Lebanese border if we are assuming that it is seeking to halt the attack of Syrian armed groups?” Hariri wondered.

“Hezbollah is presenting new evidence of the danger of the use of the illegitimate weapons, … which it is using for interests that do not serve national ones,” noted the former prime minister.

Hariri also rejected what he called “Iran’s tireless attempts to save the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and tasking Hezbollah with doing its dirty work in Homs.”

“Lebanon will not deign to be transformed into an open ground to achieve this dirty mission and the government is completely responsible for the silence over this terrible squandering of national security,” stated Hariri.

Louay al-Meqdad, spokesman for the Supreme Council of the Free Syrian Army, has accused Hezbollah of shelling Syrian territory with artillery and rocket launchers from bases inside Lebanon.

Three Hezbollah members were killed on Wednesday in an attack by the Islamist al-Nusra Front in a border town between Lebanon and Syria, the Turkish state-run Anadolu agency reported.

This is in addition to the three Lebanese Shiites that were killed on sunday as admitted by Hezbollah

“The attack targeted a Hezbollah patrol in (the Bekaa border town of) Zeita, killing three of the party’s members,” informed sources told Anadolu.

The sources revealed: “The party had an agreement with the Free Syria Army to neutralize these towns from the ongoing Syrian conflict”. “But Hezbollah has since the attack decided to deploy members in eight frontier villages”.

The Syrian opposition has long accused the group of helping the Syrian leadership crack down on the uprising — a claim the group has repeatedly denied.

Hezbollah has announced that its ranks are now on full alert in eight Lebanese-Syrian border towns following an attack that was carried out by Syria’s Al-Nusra Front against a Hezbollah patrol, Turkish Anadolu news agency reported on Wednesday.

Anadolu also quoted its sources as saying that “thirteen Al-Nusra Front members attacked a Hezbollah patrol in the Lebanese southern town of Zeita which led to the death of three of the Shiite group’s members.”

Hezbollah has been supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad ever since the uprising began in March 2011, even though the group supported revolts in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Bahrain. The group says it is backing the Syrian regime because of its support for the anti-Israel resistance movements in Lebanon and Palestine and because it is willing to implement political reforms.

Hezbollah dominates the current Lebanese government of PM Nagib Mikati

    Hey Jr. How about you make a statement about the criminals you support in Arsal that killed L.A officers. You scum.

    • Tk

      What about your Leader Aoun. Your Supreme being. HIs idea of having a lebanon with no foreign military. He engaged in a war against the Syrian.Many soldiers died in vain and then after he ran to the French embassy crying , leaving his own family ( wife and daughter) . he cames back to Lebanon and guess what he did ?? he went to Assad to appologize for his ” tahrir ” war. So all his followers died for nothing. I need to understand who the scum of all. At least Harriri, have a point. What are they doing in Tripoli engaging and assisting the government of Syria. Have you considered what will happen to the christian community ” Ya hmar” if Assad loose? they will kill everyone if there anymore any standing in Lebanon,
      and NO I am not a follower of harriri nor Ouete or hizbullah

      • libnan1

        Mr. Tk, you seem to think you can make your point more convincing by using bad language like your face. Aoun never apologized to nobody, his biggest miscalculation was he thought the L. leaders will join him to liberate Lebanon from foreigners during the tahrir war (most Lebanese did), well as you know they all sided with the Syrians including Hariri Sr.

        None of the soldiers died in vain, they died trying to liberate Lebanon. They proved to the world that are brave men even though they died and lost the battle against a powerful army. Brave men die once with their head high while cowards and collaborators live all their lives with head down.

        You must be out of your mind if you ever thought that hariri will help to protect the Christians if Assad fall. Sunnis are not be trusted no matter what, period.

          The brave were the ones who stood weaponless in the ‘Orange Revolution’ sea of humanity and chanted their desires to be unoccupied … much like they tried to do to have representation in Syria a couple of years ago … and for secular freedom in Egypt last year.
          Lebanon being ‘first’ caught all the little despots off-guard and an army pulled out. Too bad they didn’t take some others with them, of course, and an election went for a shit.
          But that’s history too. What is being done for a ‘future’? What is making a united country?

    You are no statesman, you are nothing but a rich boy who whines when he does not get his way, you have no guts, you are the face of humiliation and despair, if you care so much for Lebanon and the well being of the average Lebanese then go live in Lebanon, spend enough time there to understand them and feel their suffering. One should ask, how would you know living a luxurious life style in France.

    What a shame, you do not offer a word of reconciliation, your only vision is being a divisive leader who stops at nothing to satisfy his own power hungry ambition, great leaders always step up to the plate when things get tough and do good in the interest of all …. You will always be nothing but a small pawn in an ever changing world……

I do feel sorry for him at times because He was put in a position He was not prepared for,and I don’t think the guy was cut for politics to begin with.
      My 8 year old girl who called him ” Sad face & Big head” every time she saw his picture on TV or on my laptop keeps asking me what happened to “Big Head”?lol

      • 5thDrawer

        Fu*k*d by his society, basically … best answer.

      • Persistent

        His politics is reminiscent to Dan Quayle’s, I do not know if you remember the comment he made about the “Murphy Brown” show that generated so much buzz at the time, I think he was criticizing the role of single parents in raising kids alone as not being fit for the job……. My point he is impulsive and has not matured enough politically and you are right in saying, he was put in this position because of his name.

        On a lighter note, I hope you are not getting your daughter intermingled in politics this early. lol.. Speaking of kids, I have two daughters and I do my best to shield them from the funny business of politics. At the same time, I try very hard to usher them a better life than the one I had and strive to provide them with the things I was not able to have when I was young. Kids are precious and you gotta love them….

        • Prophettttt

          I beat you by a third daughter, persistent. lol
          What you referred to as a light note,is the high note of your comment, buddy. Sharing your family stories is much much more important than politics and Mini Hariri.
          I’m afraid that one of them(11 year old) might develop an interest in politics because she has a passion for history,including ancient Egyptian and Persian history. She’d rather buy a book than a neckless or a toy.. She is always quizzing me on ancient Egyptian history.
          My favorite time with them is our weekly visit to the book store,where they hang around for few hours reading books ,at the cafe of the book store, that they normally finish in a visit or two without having to buy them,but they end up having their favorite book as take out. lol
          Yes, this family reads books that it does not pay for,lol. I did that during college years, when I could not afford to pay for expensive book,where I ‘d read them at the book store in few visits.,My kids laugh at that,and now they do the same,but with one difference; is that I buy them book every week,lol. I used to spend plenty of time at old book store too,and bought many old books from sidewalks of New York city streets.

          God bless,and enjoy yours.

May God bless your kids, and may god bless all kids around the world.

I second what Anti said below “May God bless your kids, and may god bless all kids around the world” and Amen to that.

            I am usually a private person but let me share a couple of my life experiences:

            My daughter at the age of 13 years decided to visit Lebanon alone (it is a teen thing), we drove her to the airport and as she was checking in, she can barely see over the counter, the gal at the counter asked her : will you be traveling alone today, my daughter said yes, then the counter gal said: would you like someone to help you on the plane and escort you to your next flight, my daughter looks up at her and says, do I look like I need help, the counter gal goes, of course not sweety. Anyway, her flight proceeds to Heathrow airport and got delayed for almost two hours, my brother in law in Lebanon calls me and says she is not here and they will not give me any information on her because I am not her guardian, you need to call, the wife and I got a little worried, weired ideas flowing through our heads, that is what parents normally feel in those situations, right..long story short, she finally made it to Lebanon and called us, my first response was, why didn’t you call us, you have a cell phone, she replies I am fine and calling international is too expensive, I told you not to worry I will be fine. she is now 22 years and will be graduating from college this spring. That is what I call confidence…

            When my first one was 7 months old, my wife went back to work, she was working swing shift, I had normal working hours, there was 3.5 hours of overlap, the wife drops her off at the day care and I pick her up on the way home, day after day, the girl was not very happy, I sat the wife down and said we need to talk, we brought this child to this world and we should be the ones to raise her and not some stranger, we both have jobs and one of us has to quit, she said I will quit, since you have better pay and benefits. I said it is going to be tough financially, she said we will manage. Three years later another beautiful one comes along. The point here is try to spend all the time you can with your children and do not waiver, I certainly did, it is the best investment I have ever made and the return is priceless, when we look at these two young ladies, I know we made the right choice and we consider ourselves the wealthiest people walking. People today get wrapped up in the materialistic aspect of life and tend to lose sight of what is important and then wonder why their kids have gone astray and where did they go wrong.

            You seem to be a smart man and I am certain you are doing the right thing. May God bless and have mercy on all of us…

            I’m afraid to start talking about mine because I may not stop,and I promise you that I ‘m doing everything possible in order to be the kind of father they deserve.I just don’t know if I’m as smart as you think,lol
