Hezbollah wants the new PM to back the resistance

Nawwaf moussawiA Hezbollah MP commented Thursday on the upcoming parliamentary consultations for naming the new prime minister-designate by saying that the new PM must back the principle of the resistance.

“Any prime minister that will be named must take into account the principle of the resistance [Hezbollah] ” MP Nawaf Musawi said

President Michel Suleiman has set April 5 to April 6 as dates for holding parliamentary consultations for the naming of a prime minister designate, who will form the next government according to LBC.

Hezbollah, which was credited with liberating Lebanese territories from Israel in 2000 was a very popular organization in Lebanon and throughout the Arab world. But according to analysts ever since its 2006 war with Israel, Hezbollah has become a huge liability for Lebanon. In 2006 Hezbollah’s arms were used to try and bring down the government of former PM Fouad Siniora. In 2008 Hezbollah pointed its guns against the Lebanese people when it occupied more than half of Beirut and tried but failed to occupy Mt Lebanon . In 2011 it brought down the government of former PM Saad Hariri and reportedly used its arms to force progressive socialist party leader MP Walid Jumblatt and his parliamentary bloc to vote for their candidate Nagib Mikati as the new premier . Last week the government of PM Mikati collapsed after Hezbollah refused to extend the term of the Internal Security Forces chief. Hezbollah’s current support for the Syrian regime in its brutal crackdown against the pro democracy uprising and its recent involvement in terror operations in Bulgaria and Cyprus are additional concerns for the Lebanese people, analysts say.

Today one Hezbollah member was sentenced to jail in Cyprus for four years.

    ‘MUST’ is not a democratic word.
    ‘the principle of the resistance’ …. eliminate Jews.

    I don’t know why this site always says “tried but failed to occupy mt Lebanon”. If they really wanted mt Lebanon they wouldve taken it

      Well because they tried and couldn’t, they had many died trying – sorry to disappoint you. And if the locals in Beirut had guns like HA and were planning a street war, then it would’ve not been a walk in the park. They are strong and they keep showing off that they took over and can take over any time, but who did they really fight, security guards at Hariri’s institutions and or hotel security guards and other BS like that. If you go back in history, they tried to take over the whole west Beirut when HA started and they couldn’t, that’s why everything moved to the south and they changed their whole thinking, you can read about it on the net I’m sure. I think the best would be to get rid of guns/militia’s and let army take control of everything – end of story.
