Lebanese leaders condemn Hezbollah stronghold blast

haret hreik explosion 2Several lebanese leaders condemned Thursday’s car bomb blast that rocked Hezbollah southern stronghold of Haret Hreik , in the Dahiyeh area , a southern suburb of the capital Beirut.

The casualty toll from the bombing has risen to six dead and 75 injured, according to the most recent reports.

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.

President Michel Suleiman was quoted as saying in condemning the blast: “The terrorist hand that struck Dahiyeh is the same hand that is sowing crime, killing and destruction in all Lebanese regions.”

He called for intensifying the investigations to identify those who plotted and carried out the Haret Hreik bombing and bring them to justice.

Caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati was quoted as saying in a statement his condemning the blast:

“Targeting the southern Dahiyeh area of Beirut again, just days after the terrorist bombing that killed former minister Mohammad Chatah and others with him, proves once again that the hand of terrorism does not divide the Lebanese.”

“[Terrorists] do not wish stability for this country, but are planning and implementing a dirty conspiracy to drown the Lebanese in a sedition,” he added.

“We urge everyone to exercise restraint , more than ever, and overcome the political scheming.” He added.

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.”

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 Tripoli twin bombings that targeted 2 Sunni mosques

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 said in comments about the bombing told LBCI: “The only way to respond to these acts is through reaching an understanding among each other.”

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.

    So according to Berri the hands that killed Chatah did the recent bombings. Well since it seems Syria all stands to benefit from it then why are you helping Assad in Syria?

    • Hind Abyad

      So Lebanon don’t get Califat Sharia neighbors, or a Saudi Islamic Kingdom in the Levant.

      • nagy_michael2

        Well Fatah Al Islam was fighting the Army when Nassrallah told the Army that entering the camps were red line. The head of Fatah al Islam ran to Syria and entered there freely. There is no way Hariri or M14 as you all claim they support the Islamic Extremists. It shows in Syria where many rejected them even the opposition to Assad. No one wants them and Hezbollah and Syria are using them to inflict the heavy bombings and killings. Assad ran free routes for Al Qaada to Iraq when it was okay to attack American Soldiers. Iran harbored many Al Qaada Leaders and trained them in order to facilitate attacks. They created them and unfortunately we all have to deal with them. Everyone seems to forget what the Assad Clans have done to lebanon for 30 years and keep on going. yes israel share the big blame and the palestinians too. But Syria have killed more Lebanese 1000 times Israel. They stole doors, Charcoal, beat and torture Lebanese with the cooperation of their lebanese traitors.. they jailed Lebanese Soldiers which Aoun do not dare ask for. or any other lebanese.. I doubt it that many sunnis will accept Sharia but unfortunately wars waged by Assad and Hezbollah will drive further into extremism. Just like when the Palestinians and then later muslims killed Christians and so Christians felt that it had to be eye to eye. You can’t call yourself a Christian if you go and kill people.. I don’t remember the Saudis before when they gave money to lebanon that they order lebanon to fight a war for them or do any dirty work like Hezbollah doing for Syria and Iran.. I am not saying that M14 are holy and i could careless about either party. But so many pro M14 get killed and M14 are not retaliating in the same way. Then it cannot be israel to blame for these killings. Yes Hezbollah and Shiites are being targeted now and that’s because we have Extremists in Lebanon. And it just started happening anyway. No I do not want Sharia and do not want either Waliet al Faqih either. If you listen to Nassrallah Speeches before he attacked many times the Lebanese Christians and we were and still i believe in his eyes as invaders.. He propsed the Waliat Al Faqih and deep down he wants it to happen but he is not as pushy as Al Qaada. But eventually it will be that way if we allow them to do it. There is no way that Lebanon is not heading into some kind of civil war. with all the killings and bombing, Nassrallah will order his militia to take over areas and start killing to scare people off. Unfortunately with Hezbollah and Al Qaada lebanon is heading into the Abyss..

        • Hind Abyad

          Are these Hezbollah.. or Syrian..huh you tell me

          • nagy_michael2

            This is the results of Assad terrorists policy and Hezbollah arrogance.. you keep missing the point. We’re talking about those who caused all this to happen. You guys keep forgetting that Assad uses us and dumps us as he pleases. How many people Assad killed that were on his Assad because they’re tied to harriris murder. All we hear these syrian higher up got assasinated? who killed them? Al Qaada are no different than Hezbollah. You don’t invite the bear to your house and tell him what the hell are you doing here?

          • Hind Abyad

            Frankly my dear your a a hopelsss case. ASSAD is fighting those dumbs, he accused Turkey of being responsable for the carnage in Adra, by letting foreign killers entry Syria northern borders. You don’t know who killed Hariri, we are now talking about Syria, stop your histeria and hatred or go to Lahague with proofs, and stop pestering.

          • nagy_michael2

            Frankly my dear you forgot what Assad did to Lebanon period. Assad is the one who let extremists have their way in Lebanon and pit us against each other for years. I don’t who killed Hariri right? Is that why hezbollah killed many people and when ISF asks for the information data were denied every single time. Why is that every time some M14 or pro figures gets killed no one in Lebanon discovered who are the killers. But when the Iranian embassy or any bombings against hezbollah, suddenly they find them within minutes? why are you so much in support of Assad? You must an SSNP member that’s all i can think of? I am totally against extremists no where they came from. we are talking Syria and let Syria and the syrians and whoever wants to get in the battle fight each other. If Hezbollah wants to protect lebanon then stay in lebanon and fight. you guys are hopless and totally arrogant and immature and don’t know what you other than control the population and submit them to your will.. all the phone cells and communication info caught by satellites and previous security Lebanese members who were accused by hezbollah by having information on them. All killed.. why does Israel want to kill someone who have information to implicate Hezbollah? oh yah you guys want to tell us Israel want to cause civil war.. well if they, why didn’t they kill in 2005 until mid 2013 kill any Pro M8 figures? you’re blind with your love for Syria plain and simple.. the more sunnis get killed, the more you’re going to drive to extremism and that’s what happened just last week in Iraq. I condemn all al qaada and any Saudi or anyone who kills in the name of Allah. but when peaceful means do not achive your goals then war it is.. Yes those scumbags in AL Qaada or rather coward go around and kill innocent people. And I despise these cockroaches but I do for hezbollah and their masters in Damascus and Tehran. You want to use the extremists to side with Assad go ahead. But Assad had and still do not have mercy on us. Shame on you and every lebanese who supports him and any who supports israel too.

          • Hind Abyad

            Christian support Assad …certainly not the saudis, what a question.
            Why you support so much Saudi Fat Rats.. the most corrupted subvservient
            Arab regimes, who serves only US and Israel, the two only countries destroying
            the ME couutries. Case closed

          • nagy_michael2

            And Christians Support Syria like Aoun and you and others who forgot what Syria Assad’s did to Lebanon. Case is never going to be closed until we get rid of Assad and his followers period..

          • Peaceforleb

            Nagy, what do you think will happen if Assad and his supporters are no more. The Christian’s will be crushed by the extremists. Now I’m not saying that the Christian’s can’t hold their own, however its a numbers game. Whether you like it or not its quite simple. Without Assad and Hezbollah, lebanon will be under Sharia law. Just stating facts Nagy. Facts which I’m not sure why you fail to see.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Sounds like you think Christians need to suck up for their existence. I dont think so.

          • Peaceforleb

            Is that all you understood from my post. Where have I said the Christian’s need to suck up to anyone. The Christian’s are outnumbered as opposed to the million extremists that are willing to come and fight in the name of a fake jihad. The Christian’s are not cold blooded murdering animals who brain wash their people into blowing themselves up and kill innocent people in the process. The majority of Christian’s in Lebanon main allies are Hezbollah and the Alawites who in turn are Syria’s allies. All I’m saying whether you like them or hate them, Syria and Hezbollah are the only ones standing in face of a Sharia law Lebanon. Take your pick my friend.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I pick truth. Still sounds like you are choosing the lesser evil because you think they are defending you. I dont believe the rebels are without their reasons and we can’t deny them their struggle against the regime that has no regard for its people let alone my countries interests. I hope they knock him and if they try bringing sharia law to Lebanon we’ll deal with it like we’ve dealt with Syria before. If the Lebanese stick together first and ignore external directions then we will be all ok. Keep an eye on the situation in Syria I think you will see the rebels gaining the upper hand against the extremists and this should be a sign of the sunni rebuking extremism. Look what happened to the brotherhood in Egypt them and morsi and the whole party got tossed in the dump. I dont think the winner whoever it is allowing extremists to grow.

          • Peaceforleb

            First and foremost, Nobody is defending me. I’m not a Christian. Secondly, you speak of Rebels. What rebels. Yes in the beginning there were rebels, however the uprising has been hijacked by extremist which btw were invited in by the rebels. Rumor has it that the majority of original rebels are now realizing that the invitation was wrong and are now actually helping the Syrian government rid Syria of these extremist. And many defected solderers are now returning to the government with their D@$ks in their hands asking for forgiveness. You say if the Lebanese stick together first and ignore external directions then we will be all Ok. You seriously believe that. The Lebanese will never stick together. That is an unfortunate reality.You say that if Assad is toppled which would mean Hezbollah would be no more, and the extremist try and bring sharia law to Lebanon we’ll deal with it like we’ve dealt with Syria before, You can’t be serious, Syria occupied Lebanon for 30 years. And whether we like it not still do under the table. The minorities in Lebanon are sitting ducks and if they don’t choose wisely which side they want to be on then they will be turned into cooked ducks. With all respect my friend.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I can handle being a cooked duck, as long as I dont shake hands with devious scum.

          • Peaceforleb

            I hope nor you nor any member of your family ever experience being cooked like a duck. -:) I can understand your hate for the Assad regime, however I would rather Assad control Lebanon than have to be subjected to Sharia law. If these extremist have it their way, Lebanon will be run like Saudi Arabia. And that scares the shit out of me.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Yeah well it’s easy for me to speak from my comfortable home in sydney the only thing I worry about is the harsh sun. Its a little insensitive of me to speak so confidently but at least I am being honest about a difficult scenario. Give our army the power and I dont think we will provide a vacuum for the extremists to fill.

          • Peaceforleb

            Where about’s from Sydney are you from. I more than likely have seen you around. And your right, give the army the power and every group including Hezbollah should disarm.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Granville

          • Peaceforleb

            Ah Granville. The place you can find the best chicken in Australia with that delicious garlic and tabouli. I’m not to far from you bro. I live in Yagoona. You never know, maybe one day I’ll let you shout me some. Lol

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Further, Syria is in turmoil because the regime has abused their position in the country that has people from different religious denominations and more than this they the regime has meddled in other countries sovereignty as well. Gaddafi did similar abuses against his people, Hosni abused his position in Egypt and the result was change whether for the better or not is besides the point. The point is these dictators are not appreciated by their own citizens as a whole otherwise they could of been role model leaders in their respective countries. What makes them different to the Israeli Zionists? Nothing these people treat others like they are not deserving of equality. If you are righteous you treat people with respect whether they are Shiite or sunni or whatever. But when you think your crap is gold then its time to go and Bashar had His chance to show his colors. Time for a united people to take charge of Syria in a fair system and a constitution that protects its citizens and its NEIGHBOURS.

          • Peaceforleb

            Yes but the difference between Syria as opposed to the countries you mention is the majority of the people support him. It’s quite simple really, If the people didn’t support him, he would be gone, just like Libya, Egypt and the rest of the countries that experienced uprisings. Can you seriously not see that.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I dont want to argue obviously we all want peace but we have our differences, put Syria and its people aside for a second. As a Lebanese citizen I want my government standing on its OWN two feet, and I want OUR army defending OUR people. Iran, Bashar and maybe even the Saudis to the same extent have had too much luxury in exerting their agendas in OUR country for too long. Maybe I’m dreaming but I can dream how I see fit, and in my dreams EVERYONE is happy.

          • Reasonableman

            Happy wet dreams ay

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Its been a while.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            The Asaad regime makes me sick, for a legitimate government they are no better than the extremists. The rebels are an amature unit who are learning from their mistakes as they go and the initial alliances they made with the radicals has hurt them. But when you are out gunned you can easily make wrong decisions based on desperation. Again the Truth doesn’t need to pick sides its automatically set in a position that is firm, fair and undivided. You can sit in some else’s shadow if you like but as a Lebanese citizen I’m sticking with the shadow of the Cedar.And there’s room for everyone.

          • Hind Abyad

            Christian in Syria tragedy and devastasion are the weakest link.
            They don’t need ennemies lke Gea Gea..these Moujahedin figth

            Well Hind all you are asking for is an alliance to a killer out off necessity and I can see how you would choose that but doesn’t it only mean its a fake relationship. I would rather a genuine respect and a genuine relationship to evolve and this mess maybe a blessing in disguise where a new government could represent ALL the people of Syria, give it a chance dont rule it out. I know there are scum dogs amongst the rebels but this means they are fighting two battles.

          • Hind Abyad

            That was worth the read and a good ending, bravo yalak. I remember an old Zahle women calling hafez ‘arnib el Golan’ she stuck out her middle finger and continued to say quite confidently ‘ fi yekhoud hair’ I’ll never forget her disgust in that coward of a leader. He bows down and pisses on himself when confronted by Israel and he tried to conquer Lebanon, fashor ya ra abtek.

          • man-o-war

            Let’s also not forget the telecommunications hacking Israel was undertaking before 2005, during 2005, and probably still are. All the spies they caught working in the telecommunications sector. I’m not saying I claim to know who assassinated Harriri, but the timing of all that was happening was highly suspicious. Also, not surprising was that most of the evidence the STL had was telecommunications records, hmmm…..

          • 5thDrawer

            …. collected by and analyzed by one honest Lebanese policeman who was killed as soon as ‘somebody’ found out he had told the officials investigating.
            After that, it began to become harder to have telephone records turned over for those kinds of searches.

          • Hind Abyad

            They hav a web of spys in US thats greater than the Russian had, last time
            they entered Lebanon Territory, Hezbollah surprised them planting Spying devices. They always use other people, dispose of them after theyr finished

            Are you crazy ?Shame on yourself how dare you accuse me of wanting extremism You dont know me..you should have listened, when i told you it’s a useless conversation, i know what i’m talking about.
            You have the rigth to you’re opinion, but live and let live, you gain nothig by being irrational…take a cold shower

            What Lebanese tells a woman “you guys”…spare me the history below.

        • Hind Abyad

          You “doubt Sunni will accept Sharia”, if they don’t they are killed.
          Many were killed fo trying to help Christian neighbors in Adra carnage,
          these mercenaries have alleady disbanded FSA, they entered a sovereign
          country illegaly, they have no Syrian credentials or Syrian ID.
          Why Saudi Arabia buying 1500. U.S. Anti Missile for a War they will not

          figtht. Hint, Syria.If Assad controles them they would not behbad Syrian
          soldiers. I think this is useless conversation.

          • nagy_michael2

            Yes you’re right its useless conversation.. where were you when Assad troops were killing christians and torturing lebanon for 30 plus years? did you come here and say anything about that? i doubt it..

          • man-o-war

            I think it’s unfair to label all the rebels extremists. There are Syrians that have been wronged by Assad and his father that are seeking justice. Truth is Syria has been and is currently run by dictators. Have extremists taking advantage of the situation and are pursuing their own Islamic state? Yes! But there also true Syrian revolutionaries fighting for their fair share of the pie and equality

          • Hind Abyad

            I was talking about non-Syrian mercenaries, Al Qaeda & afiliates, backed by
            Prince Bandar the Saudi Intelligence chief, it’s not possible to discus with
            people who don’t know what’s going on, or are paid agents provocateurs spreading desinformation.

            That barbarian up there had just cut the head of a Syrian soldier, i never
            said these people are the Syrian rebels, they don’t share the same culture.
            FSA don’t kidnapp Bishops and Nuns or if they do, what’s has that to in a
            revolution.

            Two days ago, the one person who runs the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rigths” based in UK linked to FSA, said he got death treaths from the Ilamists
            i think Syrian young revolutionaries were used, ten “put away” as it’s usualy done like in Libya, the Takfiris are not Syrians, even Moslems are afraid of
            them, they beheaded priests, they are mad Shariarist, Takfiri if you’re
            not of their sect you are an opponent, you are apostate, they kille with no dicussion. Now there are 8 new moudjahedin groups joining, i don’t know all
            their names, they are all Islamists extremits, it seems to be endless.

    • Hind Abyad

      By now you must know who did the recent bombings, Chatah was killed for Lebanon to explose, who’s creating the Wars since…1948..in all honesty, who created refugees who have no more countries to go to, they’re all being destroyed, from Palestine, to Irak, to Syria, millions of refugees. This is inadmissible, it’s not normal. Their device (or YOURS) is “Divide and conquer”.

  • nagy_michael2

    So according to Berri the hands that killed Chatah did the recent bombings. Well since it seems Syria all stands to benefit from it then why are you helping Assad in Syria?

    • Hind Abyad

All I’m saying whether you like them or hate them, Syria and Hezbollah are the only ones standing in face of a Sharia law Lebanon. Take your pick my friend.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I pick truth. Still sounds like you are choosing the lesser evil because you think they are defending you. I dont believe the rebels are without their reasons and we can’t deny them their struggle against the regime that has no regard for its people let alone my countries interests. I hope they knock him and if they try bringing sharia law to Lebanon we’ll deal with it like we’ve dealt with Syria before. If the Lebanese stick together first and ignore external directions then we will be all ok. Keep an eye on the situation in Syria I think you will see the rebels gaining the upper hand against the extremists and this should be a sign of the sunni rebuking extremism. Look what happened to the brotherhood in Egypt them and morsi and the whole party got tossed in the dump. I dont think the winner whoever it is allowing extremists to grow.

          • Peaceforleb

            First and foremost, Nobody is defending me. I’m not a Christian. Secondly, you speak of Rebels. What rebels. Yes in the beginning there were rebels, however the uprising has been hijacked by extremist which btw were invited in by the rebels. Rumor has it that the majority of original rebels are now realizing that the invitation was wrong and are now actually helping the Syrian government rid Syria of these extremist. And many defected solderers are now returning to the government with their D@$ks in their hands asking for forgiveness. You say if the Lebanese stick together first and ignore external directions then we will be all Ok. You seriously believe that. The Lebanese will never stick together. That is an unfortunate reality.You say that if Assad is toppled which would mean Hezbollah would be no more, and the extremist try and bring sharia law to Lebanon we’ll deal with it like we’ve dealt with Syria before, You can’t be serious, Syria occupied Lebanon for 30 years. And whether we like it not still do under the table. The minorities in Lebanon are sitting ducks and if they don’t choose wisely which side they want to be on then they will be turned into cooked ducks. With all respect my friend.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            can handle being a cooked duck, as long as I dont shake hands with devious scum.

          • Peaceforleb

            I hope nor you nor any member of your family ever experience being cooked like a duck. -:) I can understand your hate for the Assad regime, however I would rather Assad control Lebanon than have to be subjected to Sharia law. If these extremist have it their way, Lebanon will be run like Saudi Arabia. And that scares the shit out of me.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Yeah well it’s easy for me to speak from my comfortable home in sydney the only thing I worry about is the harsh sun. Its a little insensitive of me to speak so confidently but at least I am being honest about a difficult scenario. Give our army the power and I dont think we will provide a vacuum for the extremists to fill.

          • Peaceforleb

            Where about’s from Sydney are you from. I more than likely have seen you around. And your right, give the army the power and every group including Hezbollah should disarm.

            Ah Granville. The place you can find the best chicken in Australia with that delicious garlic and tabouli. I’m not to far from you bro. I live in Yagoona. You never know, maybe one day I’ll let you shout me some. Lol

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Further, Syria is in turmoil because the regime has abused their position in the country that has people from different religious denominations and more than this they the regime has meddled in other countries sovereignty as well. Gaddafi did similar abuses against his people, Hosni abused his position in Egypt and the result was change whether for the better or not is besides the point. The point is these dictators are not appreciated by their own citizens as a whole otherwise they could of been role model leaders in their respective countries. What makes them different to the Israeli Zionists? Nothing these people treat others like they are not deserving of equality. If you are righteous you treat people with respect whether they are Shiite or sunni or whatever. But when you think your crap is gold then its time to go and Bashar had His chance to show his colors. Time for a united people to take charge of Syria in a fair system and a constitution that protects its citizens and its NEIGHBOURS.

          • Peaceforleb

            Yes but the difference between Syria as opposed to the countries you mention is the majority of the people support him. It’s quite simple really, If the people didn’t support him, he would be gone, just like Libya, Egypt and the rest of the countries that experienced uprisings. Can you seriously not see that.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I dont want to argue obviously we all want peace but we have our differences, put Syria and its people aside for a second. As a Lebanese citizen I want my government standing on its OWN two feet, and I want OUR army defending OUR people. Iran, Bashar and maybe even the Saudis to the same extent have had too much luxury in exerting their agendas in OUR country for too long. Maybe I’m dreaming but I can dream how I see fit, and in my dreams EVERYONE is happy.

          • Reasonableman

            Happy wet dreams ay

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            The Asaad regime makes me sick, for a legitimate government they are no better than the extremists. The rebels are an amature unit who are learning from their mistakes as they go and the initial alliances they made with the radicals has hurt them. But when you are out gunned you can easily make wrong decisions based on desperation. Again the Truth doesn’t need to pick sides its automatically set in a position that is firm, fair and undivided. You can sit in some else’s shadow if you like but as a Lebanese citizen I’m sticking with the shadow of the Cedar.And there’s room for everyone.

            Christian in Syria tragedy and devastasion are the weakest link.
            They don’t need ennemies lke Gea Gea..these Moujahedin figth
            for their God..like the Jews, Chist said there is one God for all humanty.
            .

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            Well Hind all you are asking for is an alliance to a killer out off necessity and I can see how you would choose that but doesn’t it only mean its a fake relationship. I would rather a genuine respect and a genuine relationship to evolve and this mess maybe a blessing in disguise where a new government could represent ALL the people of Syria, give it a chance dont rule it out. I know there are scum dogs amongst the rebels but this means they are fighting two battles.

          • Hind Abyad

            You o what you want.,,period

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            That was worth the read and a good ending, bravo yalak. I remember an old Zahle women calling hafez ‘arnib el Golan’ she stuck out her middle finger and continued to say quite confidently ‘ fi yekhoud hair’ I’ll never forget her disgust in that coward of a leader. He bows down and pisses on himself when confronted by Israel and he tried to conquer Lebanon, fashor ya ra abtek.

          • man-o-war

            Let’s also not forget the telecommunications hacking Israel was undertaking before 2005, during 2005, and probably still are. All the spies they caught working in the telecommunications sector. I’m not saying I claim to know who assassinated Harriri, but the timing of all that was happening was highly suspicious. Also, not surprising was that most of the evidence the STL had was telecommunications records, hmmm…..

          • 5thDrawer

            …. collected by and analyzed by one honest Lebanese policeman who was killed as soon as ‘somebody’ found out he had told the officials investigating.

          • Hind Abyad

            They hav a web of spys in US thats greater than the Russian had, last time they entered Lebanon Territory, Hezbollah surprised them planting Spying devices.

          • Hind Abyad

            Are you crazy ?Shame on yourself how dare you accuse me of wanting extremism You dont know me..you should have listened, when i told you it’s a useless conversation, i know what i’m talking about.
            You have the rigth to you’re opinion, but live and let live, you gain nothig by being irrational…take a cold shower

          • Hind Abyad

            What Lebanese tells a woman “you guys”…speare me the history.

        • Hind Abyad

          You “doubt Sunni will accept Sharia”, if they don’t they will be killed, many
          were killed fo trying to help Christian neighbors in Adra carnage, these mercenaries have alleady disbanded FS, they enter a sovereign country
          illegaly, they have
          no Syrian credentials or Syrian ID.
          Why Saudi Arabia buying 1500. U.S. Anti Missile for a War they will not
          figtht. Hint, Syria.If Assad controles them they would not behbad Syrian
          soldiers. I think this i useless conversation.

          • nagy_michael2

            Yes you’re right its useless conversation.. where were you when Assad troops were killing christians and torturing lebanon for 30 plus years? did you come here and say anything about that? i doubt it..

          • man-o-war

            I think it’s unfair to label all the rebels extremists. There are Syrians that have been wronged by Assad and his father that are seeking justice. Truth is Syria has been and is currently run by dictators. Have extremists taking advantage of the situation and are pursuing their own Islamic state? Yes! But there also true Syrian revolutionaries fighting for their fair share of the pie and equality

          • Hind Abyad

            I was talking about non-Syrian mercenaries, Al Qaeda & afiliates, backed by
            Prince Bandar the Saudi Intelligence chief, it’s not possible to discus with
            people who don’t know what’s going on, or are paid agents provocateurs spreading desinformation.

            That barbarian up there had just cut the head of a Syrian soldier, i never
            said these people are the Syrian rebels, they don’t share the same culture.
            FSA don’t kidnapp Bishops and Nuns or if they do, what’s has that to in a
            revolution.

            Two days ago, the one person who runs the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rigths” based in UK linked to FSA, said he got death treaths from the Ilamists
            i think Syrian young revolutionaries were used, ten “put away” as it’s usualy done like in Libya, the Takfiris are not Syrians, even Moslems are afraid of
            them, they beheaded priests, they are mad Shariarist, Takfiri if you’re
            not of their sect you are an opponent, you are apostate, they kille with no dicussion. Now there are 8 new moudjahedin groups joining, i don’t know all
            their names, they are all Islamists extremits, it seams to be endless.

    • Hind Abyad

      By now you must know who did the recent bombings, Chatah was killed for Lebanon to explose, who’s creating the Wars since…1948..in all honesty, who created refugees who have no more countries to go to, they’re all being destroyed, from Palestine, to Irak, to Syria, millions of refugees. This is inadmissible, it’s not normal. Their device (or YOURS) is “Divide and conquer”.
