Jumblatt slams Hezbollah accusations against Saudi Arabia

jumblatt scratching headProgressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt slammed Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s accusation that Saudi Arabia was linked to attack against the Iranian embassy in Beirut saying that the party should have at least waited for the facts to be revealed.

“The accusations would drag Lebanon more into regional conflicts that may once again lead it to being turned into an open ground for settling their scores,” Jumblatt warned in a statement Thursday.

He added that Israel should have been accused of perpetrating the blasts instead of Saudi Arabia.

It was better to accuse Israel of the crime, similar to the what Iran did, instead of laying blame on Saudi Arabia, keeping in mind that such accusations may lead to more tensions in Lebanon.”

Jumblatt urged that judicial authorities are given enough time to uncover the perpetrators.

“We demand that the concerned judicial authorities be granted enough time to perform their duties in uncovering all those involved in security attacks, bombings, and assassinations,” Jumblatt continued.

Jumballt’s remarks come after Nasrallah linked Saudi Arabia to the November 19 bombings that left 25 people dead outside Iran’s embassy in southern Beirut.

“We believe the statement in which the Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack on the Iranian embassy, because it is a well-known group and its emir is Saudi and it is linked to the Saudi intelligence,” Nasrallah stated in an interview on OTV.

Saudi Arabia has denounced the attack on the Iranian embassy.

    LoL, its not okay to blame saudi without details of the investigation but its okay to blame israel?
    Is this some kind of sick joke? Jumblutt is not ready to be psycologically evaluated.
    He has proven time and time again he is unfit to hold a position in the lebanese government, he should quickly withdraw this comment and apply for some reconciliation to the matter as it mag be possible the wave of instability in hassan nasrallahs speach may have caused instability in his remarks.
    His certifications and credentials should be reviewd and referred to the ombudsman.

    P.S
    Blaming saudi may not be the right thing but with the deep relationship saudi has with lebanon the burden may be forgivable by hassans or jumblatts incompitablity to connect 2 words or even create a sentance.
    As for blaming israel(who has a relationship on thin ice) countless times it has proven ostensibly through diplomatic terms they deserve leadership to control over hezballah. It seems hezballah is the sock that israel controls.

    P.s.s
    Israel israel israel terror terror terror yet we are fighting in SYRIA. What a joke.

    I think Nasrallah should go on tv and tell jumblatt to shut up but again who pays attention to this flunk.

    • The real lebanese

      You obviously just did. And although he’s a psycho, what he is saying is right. HA needs to shut up and not make statements without proof that will hurt Lebanon’s ties with other countries.

      • Peaceforleb

        Any chance to have a dig at HA hey real, 🙂

        • The real lebanese

          Lol well he’s digging on Jumblatt. Although Im not a fan of Jumblatt, what he’s saying is right.

          • libnan1

            I just disliked Jumblat …:)

      • libnan1

        Nassrallah’s record speaks for itself. This man does not bullshit, he says thing based on good info. I believe he is correct in his accusations.

        • The real lebanese

          Oh yeah. Just like how he lied to the Lebanese public about HAs involvment in Syria?

          • Peaceforleb

            And how has he lied Real.

          • The real lebanese

            He said HA wasn’t involved in Syria when it heavily was. Dont you remember?

          • Peaceforleb

            No Real, What I remember is the media trying to feed us BS. The question is do you remember that. Tell my friend, should we just swallow what the media tells us to.

          • The real lebanese

            No. But in this case we swallow what Nasrallah told us in his speeches both before and after he admitted to intervention in Syria. Remember when we used to argue over wether HA was involved in Syria and you used to deny it. And then all of the sudden one day Nasrallah gave a speech admitting to a huge operation. Remember?

          • Peaceforleb

            I honestly don’t remember, however you could be right. I will go back check. 🙂
