Another bomb targets Hezbollah stronghold, updates

haret Hreik explosionA car bomb exploded in the stronghold of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah in south Beirut, causing a large number of casualties, the group’s Al Manar TV station said.

The rush-hour blast in the Lebanese capital’s densely populated suburbs is the third to target that neighborhood since July, the station said. First reports indicated that two people died and several more were wounded, Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency said. Ambulances rushed to the scene of the explosion as thick smoke rose from the wreckage.

The attack is the latest to underline deep divisions in Lebanon caused by the civil war in Syria, which pits mostly Sunni rebels against President Bashar al-Assad, an Alawite whose sect is an offshoot of Shiite Islam. It came a week after a senior Sunni Muslim figure was assassinated in a car bomb in Beirut.

Violence has surged in Lebanon since Hezbollah militants acknowledged joining Assad’s side in the Syrian civil war. Attackers have targeted Hezbollah strongholds in Beirut and the Bekaa Valley and the Iranian embassy, while twin explosions also ripped through Sunni Muslim mosques in the northern city of Tripoli.

Updates: Sky News reported that seven people were killed and more than 20 wounded in the Hezbollah stronghold of Haret Hreik blast.

LBCI reported that initial information reveals that the car used in the explosion is a Grand Cherokee and that it was double parked .

Al-Manar Three people who died in the Haret Hreik explosion were transferred to Bahman hospital and 33 wounded were admitted to be treated there, among them many with severe injuries.

March 14 general-secretariat coordinator Fares Soueid told al-Arabiya in comments about the bombing:” The repercussions of what is happening in Syria and Iraq are affecting us all as Lebanese and this is why we asked for an immediate withdrawal from Syria. But today, I only say that we stand beside the families of the victims and the wounded and we repeat our condemnation. We must stand united today.” He added: “Each person that was martyred today in Beirut’s southern suburbs is a martyr mourned by all the Lebanese.”

Al-Arabiya quoting security sources as saying: “The bomb that exploded in Haret Hreik has been estimated to weigh 30 kg ( 66 lb.) of TNT.

Former PM Saad Hariri said in comments about the bombing: “The terrorism that is targeting civilians, innocents and civilian areas is a criminal behavior that is devoid of any human feelings and can certainly be described as “satanic deeds.”

Former Lebanese president and Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel in comments about the bombing told LBCI: “The only way to respond to these acts is through reaching an understanding among each other.”

Speaker Nabih Berri said in comments about the bombing: “The hands that assassinated minister Chatah are the same hands that staged bombings in Dahieh in the past and today and the same hands behind the Tripoli blasts.”
Hezbollah and the Syrian regime were blamed for the assassination of former finance minister Mohammad Chatah and for the Trpoli twin bombings that targeted 2 Sunni mosques

            Yes, the tribal fighters would just leave Lebanon alone as they kill eachother in a lust for power. The downfall of Damascus would have been disastrous for the entire region save Israel, in fact, not just Iran.

          • cook

            Assad let extremists into Syria and concentrated on fighting civilians and moderate Syrian rebels in order to gain sympathy from the west in the name of fighting terrorism.

            Israel can help Lebanon again if extremists invade again, bowing to the shaitan is not the answer

          • bypest

            Interesting theories. The majority of fighters in Syria today are actually Assad-backed, and Israel will help Lebanon because certainly the Zionists helped us in the past and certainly they have not been sponsoring this insurgency for the purpose of dividing and conquering their neighbors.

            Where is the line is the soul of even one innocent be worth killing a terrorist (if he was one)??
            Hezballah use the same reasoning. Join in on a war, store weapons in civillian populated areas, act as a government within a government and control their “own” civillian populated areas and then blame israel or saudi arabia or even uncle joe for their negligance.
            Whilst your general is sucking nasrallahs ass in order to grab power, and you suck your generals ass blinded by the reality of the negligence caused by his support.

            You are funny dude “negligence caused by his support” that is one loaded statement. Everything I state is actual not influenced by any personality. I can tell you a fact that you might want to go look it up. The first party that interfered in Syria was Hariri and company. HA was the last party to interfere in self defense. Hariri was shipping militants, money from Tripoli and Akar from the beginning. Go check it out and that is a fact.

            I did not dispute the barrel bombs, I just thought these people should be hiding in a safe place rather than hanging out looking at the sky. Don’t you think or I missed something. BTW killing the head of a global terrorist org should be celebrated by you too. I just hate to see any innocent civilian harmed because of some scum bag terrorist.

          • Reasonableman

            Definately i do not support terrorists and i know you don’t either you do not read any posts from me supporting terrorists or supporting people who support terrorists. I support equality, assad on the other hand openley kills innocents and blames “terrorists hiding in populated areas”.
            Where is the line is the soul of even one innocent be worth killing a terrorist (if he was one)??
            Hezballah use the same reasoning. Join in on a war, store weapons in civillian populated areas, act as a government within a government and control their “own” civillian populated areas and then blame israel or saudi arabia or even uncle joe for their negligance.
            Whilst your general is sucking nasrallahs ass in order to grab power, and you suck your generals ass blinded by the reality of the negligence caused by his support.

            Saudia arabia and israel dont even need to lift a finger, the stupidity of the arabs is justice enough.

            You are funny dude “negligence caused by his support” that is one loaded statement. Everything I state is actual not influenced by any personality. I can tell you a fact that you might want to go look it up. The first party that interfered in Syria was Hariri and company. HA was the last party to interfere in self defense. Hariri was shipping militants, money from Tripoli and Akar from the beginning. Go check it out and that is a fact.

          • Leborigine

            Do you actually blame Hariri for getting involved?? Those fu$%ers were involved in our business for 30 years. Hariri gets involved for a few months and they cry foul!

            As for the pic, it seems they watch the plane go by just as the bomb explodes down the street. But one needs a descriptive for that pic, after all, as it could be sunlight.

    Condolences to the innocents that have suffered they are indeed martyrs. Those martyred are not anymore better then those innocent in syria killed by the control of assad and his lackeys.

    Hezballah you need to stop blaming others for their shortcomings, you build a stronghold inside a busy city and close your eyes to the concequences to the war you ignited?
    You are a bunch of cowards.

    • man-o-war

      Are these attacks justified in your eyes because HA is involved in Syria? The attacks on the mosque in Tripoli was not justified, innocent people died! Nobody came out and said the Sunni shouldn’t have been sending fighters to Syria. By doing so they asked for it, kind of like what your suggesting. What about the Tripoli strongholds, the Refugee camp strongholds, and the Sidon strongholds? Get a clue already! The powers that be are instigating strife and want to weaken Lebanon as a whole. The ignorant religious fanatics are eating it up, I’m sure the instigators are surprising themselves how easy it is. Muslims need to wake up already and quit killing each other. Its absurd!

      • Reasonableman

        How can i offer my condolences to the innocent and then justify the attack please proof read before wasting your time.
        I will elaborate again that the situation could have been avoided if HA minds there own business gets out of syria hand in ALLLL their weapons and act as lebanese civillians and give these “strongholds” back to LEBANON.
        Edit: not all shiits are HA and not all shiits agree with HA or their religion likewise with sunnis or christians or jews etc.. Don’t talk to anybody like asif they cant tell the difference between black and white if you ever want a decent response. There is a mattal and it is. L jahash byshoof l 3olem metlu j7osh.

The legitimate opposition in syria has been overun by the extremists…..the consequent of that action is a reaction by minorities to fight back. Its not sectarian only in the eyes of the ignorant and those listening to these freaks…what is the action? In qusar the hzb went in…what is the reaction? sunnis,alawites , christians , shiites and druze have gone back home there. What is the action? saudia arabia is hysterical because bundars plans are not working….what is the reaction? The spreading of chaos.What is the action? These people you claim to be fighting for freedom coming into villages killing,beheading,bringing in foreign fighters…what is the reaction? People standing up to them. What is the action? Our troops have been killed , maimed and attacked by these groups. What is the reaction? They must be stopped. Should i go on?

          • Reasonableman

            If you are trying to link all the problems upon one diety then you have alot of catching up to do before you even scratch the surface my friend. It takes two to tango.
            Before i start from the begining im sure we are both informed there is nowhere near enough space time or resources to form a 100% truth syrup on a simple blog like these but even if we achieve 1% i will count that as a victory. Small victory is better than none.

            1.where was the syrian army when the “extremists” filled syria?
            A. Busy planning an escape route, plan A was to crush the moderate voice calling for the end of a dictatorship which primaraly leaning to injustices of a certain religion in order to protect his own. Plan B is to gain sympathy by the world leaders by letting in these “extremists” and have his name written in stone as the glue of the resistance axis. Part c. Destroy the social fabric by letting in “extremists” so syria would become split into part of the iranian islamic republic.

            Plan A – we have seen israel cross borders and also attack syrian territory under the sun and the syrian army is still too busy to respond(because there killing civillians willy nilly) after already sending final warnings.

            Plan B – the formation and introduction of an opposition (a new weak in strength player) which follows the same international guidelines. This tactic was the illusion of a rival whilst the international community and islamic community had good knowledge no hope is in sight through international laws which are updated nearly everyday against a more experienced player in the game.

            Plan c – before geneva 1 hezballah gets involved before geneva 2 we see barrel bombs. Increased attacks for for more begging by international community to STOP (crocodile tears ofcourse)

            Hezb take over of qusayr – by hezb getting involved it brings the war back to lebanon dont tell me otherwise.. you do not go out and get high and come home expecting to be straighty 180 its not rocket science. There move was related to block any loss of syria (protecting assad from geneva 1) and have realised without their feet on the ground and assad being oustered means nomore weapons flying over or driving through syria via lebanon.

            Saudis involvment – any feet on the ground which traces back to saudi arabian politics? You may have groups in saudi which support the uprisings but none of them trace back to the lawmakers and peace keepers. Infact if you are a national you are arrested and fined for intervening in conflict outside of saudia.
            Whats the problem if they give 3bill$ to the lebanese army. The army should be better equipped then occupying forces. Ha dont even have the guts to call the “strongholds” little iran seeing its their long term goal.

            Troops being fired upon by syrian warplanes is this what you call friendliness?

            Israel is using the opportunity to take advantage of the situation to keep it bleeding…anyone in their right mind knows that to respond to israeli aggression now would not be the right time so as to not open another front….they tried to infiltrate through labouneh in south lebanon and got hit.

            Forget the opposition its finished its been overrun by the takfiris…even within their ranks there are reports that idriss has fled to qatar and both he and oqab saqr are wanted by the fsa for fraud. ( sorry i forgot oqab saqr has been involved from day one handing out blankets and nappies???) while idriss has gotten fatter and his moustache darker since this started.

            Yes hzb did go into qusar and they said it openly…at first i thought what the heck but after seeing what has been happening i dont blame them…if they hadnt these twits would be on our doorstep kicking peoples heads around like a soccer ball as i saw a clip only yesterday….you might not like the idea of hzb going in but whats fact is that people in qusar have gone back to their homes christians,sunnis alawties and druze. Further when you see countries like egypt,iraq,yemen,tunisia going on the offensive against these takfirirs then what hzb did is justified because from day one our army has not been allowed to because m14 wont give them the backing…Look at arsal when our troops were killed and saida….in arsal the mayor and his son were shown on tape killing and dragging our dead troops around and yet they have not been arrested…in saida assir attacked our troops and our army responded…m14 started crying foul and it took the army commander a meeting with them to show them footage in order to believe.
            Finally saudi involvement…im sorry to say but you are misinformed…you may recall at the beginning of the conflict footage showing saudi nationals auctioning off their sons to go fight jihad in syria true or not? Look it up saudi men auctioning off their sons for jihad in syria. Saudia arabia has spent over $30billion dollars on foreign fighters in syria…whats even more blatant is when bandar first went and met with putin…he actually said straight out to putin that when syria is under their control he will garuantee russias interests…what more do you want than qatar telling saudia arabia that they were in charge for 2 years and they had world opinion and since saudia arabia has taken over within 2 months they have lost control and world opinion…further why do you think qatar emir abdacated the throne to his son?
            Re saudia arabia giving lebanon $3billion first of all france is laughing all the way to the bank because they are the ones that got the money…Lets see what this money gives the lebanese army…You think israel will allow the lebanese army to buy proper weaponary? They have an agreemen with the usa that no arab country is allowed to have weapons that can be used against it….most we will get is new uniforms and infrastructure and light arms for domestic use. further saudia arabia had a prerequisite for giving us the weapons and that is hzb not to be part of the government..So I ask is saudia arabia trying to help lebanon fight terrorism or are they that hysterical over not getting their way that they will do whatever they can to cause fitna? We just caught a saudi terrorist whats the bet he ends up back in saudia arabia?
            Re the barrel bombs check the news brother the takfiris were using them first in maloula as they rolled them down into the building below.So I hope this gives you a touch of insight?

            As for israel if they are benifitting because of the stupidity of arabs well good for them. Theres a mattal halal 3a alb l shoter. Now that thats out of the way lets show the stupidity of the ” resistance axis”
            Protecting borders with their “frenemy”
            Hating on israel for occupation of SUNNI holy sites?
            Liberating SUNNI holy places?
            Firing rockets into nomans land and into the ocean
            Israel blasting weapon depots in syria and hezballah nor anybody from this axis of chicken shits threw merely a rock
            Occupying lebanon and having “strongholds” joining in on a war going against the majority of lebanese and still want to be concidered lebanese when all should be arrested for broadening the regional conflict making it sectarian.
            If hezballah stuck to the disasociation policy they would have one less enemy. You can 5abes all you want by mentioning all other countries and there problem with AQ but each country has different reasons for the problems. HA’s involvment had all to do with saving bashar from geneva and nothing to do with lebanon,

            All the people moved back to qusayr?? Have you seen qusayr brother theres nothing left!!! Theres hardly any movement there just the same socially week people that had no means to leave and the shia. Yes it has been turned into little iran “al hussein” flags ontop of what uses to be places of worship.

            Yes it is a big fitna for HA you are all jealous of the lebanese army had it been HA recieving 3bill$ it would be different right? Whats this losing in syria have to do with lebanon?? Again ta5bisa, all this ta5bis because HA now fear the repurcussions inshallah it bought the army tyeb l eid and nothing more im happy for them and so should you and HA.

            As for they mayor of arsal funny how there is no evidence. Oh wait nasrallah said so that means the STL lies since he is infaluable to error. Maybe you can explain why ali eid has run to syria? And where rifaat eid is hiding?

            With the saudi nationals yes its possible. Its not illegal until you get caught, fortunately we don’t know if they were caught by the government or the LE(law enforcers). Its still against the law to interfere in syria or anywhere, unlike tehran GOVERNMENTwho send out willy nilly thinking they will win this war and creates “Passports to jannah” when they are ready to go.

The army in lebanon has only been attacked by one side and its never been the hzb. Mayor of arsal it was all over the news…khaled daher was embarrassingly trying to defend them. Again you bring up the stl. It has nothing to do with this…What about the rest of the points i made you responded to nothing?Hzb has never been against the army go back and check and see if you can find a speech against the army..its the other side that always attacks the army.

            ‘For every action there is a reaction’ is a term used in physics and the term ‘Murphy’s law’ means if something can go wrong it will go wrong, so how do you relate the two?

            Ahhh maborlz…. the term is being used loosly to prove a point.
            In the case of the area being a hezballah stronghold…
            Hezballah has more enemies then friends so murphies law applied here (obviously enimies found a fault in there strong hold and caused something to go wrong)
            Hezballah has also been a supporter of the killer hence there are reactions. That explains the every action is a reaction.

            Again NO killing innocent civillians is not the right thing to do. Killing the guy holding the gun working for the killer YES. If that could also be avoided then BINGO we can start becoming civalised

            If you are trying to link all the problems upon one diety then you have alot of catching up to do before you even scratch the surface my friend. It takes two to tango.
            Before i start from the begining im sure we are both informed there is nowhere near enough space time or resources to form a 100% truth syrup on a simple blog like these but even if we achieve 1% i will count that as a victory. Small victory is better than none.

            1.where was the syrian army when the “extremists” filled syria?
            A. Busy planning an escape route, plan A was to crush the moderate voice calling for the end of a dictatorship which primaraly leaning to injustices of a certain religion in order to protect his own. Plan B is to gain sympathy by the world leaders by letting in these “extremists” and have his name written in stone as the glue of the resistance axis. Part c. Destroy the social fabric by letting in “extremists” so syria would become split into part of the iranian islamic republic.

            Plan A – we have seen israel cross borders and also attack syrian territory under the sun and the syrian army is still too busy to respond(because there killing civillians willy nilly) after already sending final warnings.

            Plan B – the formation and introduction of an opposition (a new weak in strength player) which follows the same international guidelines. This tactic was the illusion of a rival whilst the international community and islamic community had good knowledge no hope is in sight through international laws which are updated nearly everyday against a more experienced player in the game.

            Plan c – before geneva 1 hezballah gets involved before geneva 2 we see barrel bombs. Increased attacks for for more begging by international community to STOP (crocodile tears ofcourse)

            Hezb take over of qusayr – by hezb getting involved it brings the war back to lebanon dont tell me otherwise.. you do not go out and get high and come home expecting to be straighty 180 its not rocket science. There move was related to block any loss of syria (protecting assad from geneva 1) and have realised without their feet on the ground and assad being oustered means nomore weapons flying over or driving through syria via lebanon.

            Saudis involvment – any feet on the ground which traces back to saudi arabian politics? You may have groups in saudi which support the uprisings but none of them trace back to the lawmakers and peace keepers. Infact if you are a national you are arrested and fined for intervening in conflict outside of saudia.
            Whats the problem if they give 3bill$ to the lebanese army. The army should be better equipped then occupying forces. Ha dont even have the guts to call the “strongholds” little iran seeing its their long term goal.

            Troops being fired upon by syrian warplanes is this what you call friendliness?

            Keep in mind 1% error can and does void the other 99truths.Anything less then 100% is a fail when referring to Deity. But its a start.

            Report: New Libyan Regime Sends 600 Troops To Fight In Syria

            600 Libyans ‘already fighting in Syria’-The Syrian government…is likely to see them as mercenaries, which NATO member Turkey allowed into their country as an alternative to a full-scale military campaign, which is impossible without the sanction of the United Nations…further you can find articles in new york times and washington post.

            French Bishop: Syrian Soldiers Face Foreign Fighters, Mercenaries, and Terrorists

            “The enemies of Syria have enlisted some of the Muslim Brotherhood in order to destroy the brotherly relations that traditionally existed between Muslims and Christians.”The US, NATO, Israeli, and Gulf State-backed “heroic” Free Syrian Army has been accused by Syria’s…

            Israel is using the opportunity to take advantage of the situation to keep it bleeding…anyone in their right mind knows that to respond to israeli aggression now would not be the right time so as to not open another front….they tried to infiltrate through labouneh in south lebanon and got hit.

            Forget the opposition its finished its been overrun by the takfiris…even within their ranks there are reports that idriss has fled to qatar and both he and oqab saqr are wanted by the fsa for fraud. ( sorry i forgot oqab saqr has been involved from day one handing out blankets and nappies???) while idriss has gotten fatter and his moustache darker since this started.

            Yes hzb did go into qusar and they said it openly…at first i thought what the heck but after seeing what has been happening i dont blame them…if they hadnt these twits would be on our doorstep kicking peoples heads around like a soccer ball as i saw a clip only yesterday….you might not like the idea of hzb going in but whats fact is that people in qusar have gone back to their homes christians,sunnis alawties and druze. Further when you see countries like egypt,iraq,yemen,tunisia going on the offensive against these takfirirs then what hzb did is justified because from day one our army has not been allowed to because m14 wont give them the backing…Look at arsal when our troops were killed and saida….in arsal the mayor and his son were shown on tape killing and dragging our dead troops around and yet they have not been arrested…in saida assir attacked our troops and our army responded…m14 started crying foul and it took the army commander a meeting with them to show them footage in order to believe.
            Finally saudi involvement…im sorry to say but you are misinformed…you may recall at the beginning of the conflict footage showing saudi nationals auctioning off their sons to go fight jihad in syria true or not? Look it up saudi men auctioning off their sons for jihad in syria. Saudia arabia has spent over $30billion dollars on foreign fighters in syria…whats even more blatant is when bandar first went and met with putin…he actually said straight out to putin that when syria is under their control he will garuantee russias interests…what more do you want than qatar telling saudia arabia that they were in charge for 2 years and they had world opinion and since saudia arabia has taken over within 2 months they have lost control and world opinion…further why do you think qatar emir abdacated the throne to his son?
            Re saudia arabia giving lebanon $3billion first of all france is laughing all the way to the bank because they are the ones that got the money…Lets see what this money gives the lebanese army…You think israel will allow the lebanese army to buy proper weaponary? They have an agreemen with the usa that no arab country is allowed to have weapons that can be used against it….most we will get is new uniforms and infrastructure and light arms for domestic use. further saudia arabia had a prerequisite for giving us the weapons and that is hzb not to be part of the government..So I ask is saudia arabia trying to help lebanon fight terrorism or are they that hysterical over not getting their way that they will do whatever they can to cause fitna? We just caught a saudi terrorist whats the bet he ends up back in saudia arabia?
            Re the barrel bombs check the news brother the takfiris were using them first in maloula as they rolled them down into the building below.So I hope this gives you a touch of insight?

          • 5thDrawer

            That was ‘brief’ ??? :-)))))

          • Reasonableman

            I know their are foreigners on both sides you dont need to explain tgat to me, try explaining how bashar wasnt planning an escape route.

            As for israel if they are benifitting because of the stupidity of arabs well good for them. Theres a mattal halal 3a alb l shoter. Now that thats out of the way lets show the stupidity of the ” resistance axis”
            Protecting borders with their “frenemy”
            Hating on israel for occupation of SUNNI holy sites?
            Liberating SUNNI holy places?
            Firing rockets into nomans land and into the ocean
            Israel blasting weapon depots in syria and hezballah nor anybody from this axis of chicken shits threw merely a rock
            Occupying lebanon and having “strongholds” joining in on a war going against the majority of lebanese and still want to be concidered lebanese and vetoed when all should be arrested for broadening the regional conflict making it sectarian.
            If hezballah stuck to the disasociation policy they would have one less enemy. You can 5abes all you want by mentioning all other countries and there problem with AQ but each country has different reasons for the problems. HA’s involvment had all to do with saving bashar from geneva and nothing to do with lebanon,

            All the people moved back to qusayr?? Have you seen qusayr brother theres nothing left!!! Theres hardly any movement there just the same socially week people that had no means to leave and the shia. Yes it has been turned into little iran “al hussein” flags ontop of what uses to be places of worship.

            Yes it is a big fitna for HA you are all jealous of the lebanese army had it been HA recieving 3bill$ it would be different right? Whats this losing in syria have to do with lebanon?? Again ta5bisa, all this ta5bis because HA now fear the repurcussions inshallah it bought the army tyeb l eid and nothing more im happy for them and so should you and HA.

            As for they mayor of arsal funny how there is no evidence. Oh wait nasrallah said so that means the STL lies since he is infaluable to error. Maybe you can explain why ali eid has run to syria? And where rifaat eid is hiding?

            With the saudi nationals yes its possible. Its not illegal until you get caught, fortunately we don’t know if they were caught by the government or the LE(law enforcers). Its still against the law to interfere in syria or anywhere, unlike tehran GOVERNMENTwho send out willy nilly thinking they will win this war and creates “Passports to jannah” when they are ready to go.

          • dateam

            Brother your too emotional this politics…i dont have the time to keep explaining to you the realities…you onnly see what you want to see and no matter how much we try and make you see differently you wont. whats the escape route first i heard of it? The army in lebanon has only been attacked by one side and its never been the hzb. Mayor of arsal it was all over the news…khaled daher was embarrassingly trying to defend them. Again you bring up the stl. It has nothing to do with this…What about the rest of the points i made you responded to nothing?Hzb has never been against the army go back and check and see if you can find a speech against the army..its the other side that always attacks the army. And please enough of the sectarian crap…there are more sunnis killing sunnis in the arab world…look around you.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            ‘For every action there is a reaction’ is a term used in physics and the term ‘Murphy’s law’ means if something can go wrong it will go wrong, so how do you relate the two?

          • Reasonableman

            Ahhh maborlz…. the term is being used loosly to prove a point.
            In the case of the area being a hezballah stronghold…
            Hezballah has more enemies then friends so murphies law applied here (obviously enimies found a fault in there strong hold and caused something to go wrong)
            Hezballah has also been a supporter of the killer hence there are reactions. That explains the every action is a reaction.

            Again NO killing innocent civillians is not the right thing to do. Killing the guy holding the gun working for the killer YES. If that could also be avoided then BINGO we can start becoming civalised

    • libnan1

      I would have saluted you if you would have stopped at the first paragraph. That area of Beirut was always shiite and since HA is Shiite party it’s natural for them to be there. The other thing HA did not ignite the war in Syria, they went there to protect Lebanon and get rid of them terrorist before they cross the borders. If you think that these bastard will stop in Syria if they win then you must be out of your mind.

      • Reasonableman

        Oh so if populated with shiits does this mean the shiits have the right to store weapons and run their own checkpoints? Go try this in any other country and see the demise of such a criminal party.

    • juboraaz

      what do call the mass killing of innocent people in Yeman, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Mali,…..It is the mentality of your heroes…..
      I wish you would lighten us with your rationale, I am all ears…

      • Reasonableman

        I do not have the answers to the problems of the world and would not attempt to even take an educated guess. Ill tell you what though each respected country has there own respected individual reasons. 7oj t5abis.
        That is my rationale, so enlighten me with your rationale. Why do you mention these other countries and there problems when they are not lebanons current problems? How do you expect peace in lebanon or peace with mewhen before you even publish a comment you are filled with sarcasm and aggression?

  • Maborlz Ez-Hari

    The reality is that these bombings would not happen if the people supported each other rather than some low life leader of some low life political/religious party.Arabs do not deserve a free country or a democratic government they will be living in safety only when a vicious hard line dictator gains power and treads in faces of anyone who breathes out of turn. Captivity is the only answer for the Arab race as they are jealous, vengeful, unforgiving, merciless, hyena’s. When a suicide bomber is regarded as a martyr then enough is said of the hopeless existance of these people. The free for all has started and the downhill ride has just begun with the devil at the wheel.

      We had a very good chance to unite in 2005 when the scumbags (syrians) duck tailed and marched out of Lebanon, but unfortunately some supporters were too upset to have the syrian foot off their necks and decided to stall and burn the country instead of rebuilding it!
