Hezbollah steers Lebanon closer to Syria, straining efforts to stay neutral

hezbollah flag  assadBy Lisa Barrington
BEIRUT – Lebanon – Hezbollah and its allies are pressing the Lebanese state to normalise relations with President Bashar al-Assad’s government in Syria, testing Lebanon’s policy of “dissociation” from the Syrian conflict and igniting a political row.

Calls for closer ties with the Syrian government, including on refugee returns and military operations on the Lebanon-Syria border, come as Assad regains control of more territory from insurgents and seeks to recover his international standing.

The Lebanese policy of “dissociation”, agreed in 2012, has aimed to keep the deeply divided state out of regional conflicts such as Syria even as Iran-backed Hezbollah became heavily involved there, sending fighters to help Assad, who is also allied to Iran.

The policy has helped rival groups to coexist in governments bringing together Hezbollah, classified as a terrorist group by the United States, with politicians allied to Iran’s foe Saudi Arabia, underpinning a degree of political entente amid the regional turmoil.

While Lebanon never severed diplomatic or trade ties with Syria, the government has avoided dealing with the Syrian government in an official capacity and the collapse of the policy would be a political boost to Assad.

It would also underline Iran’s ascendancy in Lebanon, where the role of Saudi Arabia has diminished in recent years when it has focused on confronting Tehran in the Gulf instead.

Assad’s Lebanese Shi’ite allies want the government to cooperate with Syria on issues such as the fight against jihadists at their shared border and securing the return of the 1.5 million Syrians currently taking refuge in Lebanon.

“Everybody recognises (the dissociation policy) as a farce to some extent, but at least it contained the conflict and prevented Lebanon from being dragged even further into what is going on in Syria,” said Maha Yahya, director of the Carnegie Middle East Centre in Beirut.

“(A normalisation of relations) would be viewed as a victory, if using sectarian terms, of Shi’ites versus the Sunnis and will just inflame tensions even more.”

    Of course Hezbollah has been trying to do it that since 2005 and they will succeed and those who don’t fold and if they criticized them they will be assassinated. Hezbollah have no respect for Lebanon or Lebanese period. All it’s to combine forces to fight the enemies of Iran and makes the LAF will be total control of Hezbollah. I am sure Hezbollah thinking a short term rest from the war in Syria since Daesh threats as taking over territories is winding down and the Syrian rebels are told you cannot have the US help and Arabs are fighting each other. So they can’t do much with the firepower of Russia, Syrian forces, thousands of militiamen crossing into Syria to help fight alongside the regime along with Hezbollah. Hezbollah will risk Lebanon again for sure but the war this time will start from the SYrian border but eventually it will spill into Lebanon. Mr. Nassrallah if you venture again this path of destruction the Sunnis will have no mercy on you and the Shiites and the Syrian refugees will eat you alive.
    Do not think for one minutes the Israelis have I am sure thousands of AL Nusra surrogates to help deter you from taking over the golan heights. why not the israelis are being smart this way they reduce their own casualties.

      We are blessed with great neighbors… namely Israel and Syria and inherited a country of bigotry and racism from the ottomans who planted the seeds of feudalism so they rule. 90 percent of hezbollah’s fighters will go home when the money dries up. As long as they are employed by Iranian money they will do what they have to do. There are no jobs in Lebanon and the average Lebanese is lazy. That is why every household has a maid. Add the secret sauce of having politicians who do not give a $hit about Lebanon and about creating jobs and you have the symptom of Hezbollah. If they go another will take their place believe me.

        Iran could stop funding Hezzy and let the Lebanese themselves deal with Israelis and Jihadis.

            “A report has revealed that hundreds of Israeli soldiers have abandoned their duties without permission, and are intent not to return in a show of disapproval of the military conscription policies of the Israeli regime.

            The Hebrew-language news website Walla reported on Saturday that 300 Israeli troops had left or remained absent from their units over the past week.

            The report added that Israeli military officials have leveled charges against 60 soldiers, who have been dropped from their unit rolls and listed as deserters.

            The report came as the Israeli military announced earlier this year that suicide was the main cause of death among Israeli soldiers, and that 15 troopers – all of them male – had taken their own lives last year.”

Do you think Iran would give you the freedom to say whatever you please to the world wide web if it wasn’t already banned there, heck you could get arrested for dancing by the pool or not having your proper headscarf on in that crazy country.

          • Rascal

            Please tell me with facts how Iran is not number one per capita in state executions. China is actually number one in amount of executions, but they have 1.5 billion people, Iran with its current population of around 70 million is number one per capita. Nearly 3 times as many as Saudi Arabia per year. Many executions include crimes of conscience (opinions against god or the state).
            Just sad. This should be an embarrassment to all Iranians of free thought.
            I have nothing against regular Iranians who are just trying to have a life and work under such an oppressive regime, I direct all my comments to leadership and party of god members. So if you fall under that category (pro mullah), please do be offended by the truth till it hurts.

        Yes I totally agree. lazy Lebanese indeed and the government is not helping since it’s provides favors and caters to individuals and clans to make everyone depended on the politicians and all we do is protest here and there. After few days we let it go because you have the S.O.B Berri the head of the snakes want to control the Parliament forever and send his thugs with swords to intimidate people.. Hezbollah uses the motorcycle gangs and the rest is lawlessness anyway.

    • Ilami-Gilaki

      If you can do a better job solving this problem then what holds you back?

      • Danny Farah

        When you have Iranians proxies assassinating people it’s hard to do or say much anyway.
        My take is very simple like every concerned Lebanese. Hezbollah dissolve and either join or support the Lebanese army. Involve in rebuilding the country because we are tired of hegemony from all neighbors. if we are strong then nobody can divide us. But it’s hard when you have the major power brokers in Lebanon running us into the ground and holding every major decision in the government. I don’t mind normal relationships with all neighbors including Israel but no interference from no one and not even the arabs. we don’t need their stinking money and many rich Lebanese will be happy and will trust to invest in Lebanon if the Lebanese are united.
        I was in Lebanon and when I merely criticized the Syrian presence and I accused it of being no different than Israel. there were 3 attempts by Syrian Soldiers on my life. So I stayed Low Key and with people whom are well connected with Syrians so i can indirectly be protected. We need you to help us get rid of Iranian control over Lebanon. You guys should be protesting the money given to Hezbollah should be given back to the economy and the Iranian people not us. Today I heard that the revolutionary guards got multiple folds the aid they used to get. And guess what where some of that money goes..Yes I am sure Israel has a lot to do with dividing us but also we are making it easy for them to divide us. If we have a strong Army then we have a strong state. Then the West and even the Arabs will dump billions of dollars into the economy and the army and we will beat anyone including Israel.

        • Ilami-Gilaki

            “siktir” means to “fvck off” in Turkish but the rest of what you wrote makes no sense – especially all together.

            vs, is that thou?

            You both share an aweful lot in common: the way you post unrelated news, use foreign languages erroneously, attack Hind, etc.

            If I would put all my chips on a guess, I would say Niemals (aka Matrix, O’Yeah, O’Matrix, AnnoDazumal, etc), vs and you are one and the same troll.

            Gotta say that you’ve perfected your trolling act in disagreeing between your different usernames. Your precious aliases were rather easily detectable.

          • Rainbow Sponge

            çük kafalý literally means little dickhead — oh, except to a retârd like you who thinks he can proofread a foreign language on Google Translate.

          • Omega

            It does indeed. I didn’t place “çük” as “dick” (I know of it as “sik”). I speak some Turkish and used what I know (not Google Translate – which now that I checked returned “dick” as “çük”).

            Either way, I lost my chips on this one as you’re not Niemals/vs/etc.

          • Rainbow Sponge

            Well your English is really good. I honestly don’t know whose English is worse, vs or Hind. I think vs knows Russian, while Hind types made up gibberish — she isn’t fluent in English, nor French, nor Arabic, or any spoken language for that matter. Explains why she often replies to you with propaganda videos.

          • Niemals

            I doubt that you will get a plausible explanation from Omega regarding HebAlbas propaganda videos she reply to him…..

            I wonder who contributed to the following reaction from; https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a963d38689f062c901ee4b81c166b79d79e9da64ffebd0036ccc280eb32b5da8.jpg
            Extremely doubtful that it was the duo Hannibal or HebAlba….

          • Rainbow Sponge

            Hind’s borking must have contributed somewhat.

            ‘Bork’ btw is internet slang used to describe the uncanny feeling of ‘nearly’ understanding what’s being said while listening to people speaking another language. It’s from a Swedish muppet show where the chef speaks in nonsensical Swedish with occasionally identifiable English words. For real life examples, check out Hind Abyad’s nonsensical/gibberish posts.

            @disqus_uoaL7u3iAR:disqus you asked what bork means so there you go 🙂

            What do I have to do with YaLibnan’s note to readers?

          • Omega

            Considering that you only started posting recently on YaLibnan, I find it odd how Hind got under your skin. But since you insinuate that “she often replies to you with propaganda videos”, I suspect that you’re not new here. For the record, the content she posts is on YaLibnan and not to me.

            Equally odd how anyone would sympathize with such a degenerate as vs. There again, you did write “Keep calling her wh0re I love it.” to vs. I believe you share an aweful lot more with vs than her English does with vs.

            We can all agree to disagree respectfully.

          • Rainbow Sponge

            I mean, she’s just not likeable. I didn’t mean to say she replies to me personally with videos or whatever, but I’ve read her exchanges with Rudy, Niemals, et al to know what she’s all about. Where does one start. She loves her fake news – and she does it knowingly with the intention to deceive others. When others call her out on it, she either replies with propaganda videos or mumbles something in one of her made up languages. In a span of a few hours you see her expressing hatred for Jews, Kurds and western governments and institutions like the European Union (who according to her are nazis). Vehemently believes in her own distorted version of history. Total psycho who like YK said is probably posting from some mental institution.

          • Omega

            Despite not asking you what you meant, you went on another frenzy against Hind. I hope you were able to vent some fumes out.

            Reading your comments on syria.liveumap.com, I should have placed most of my chips, if not all of them, on you being MekensehParty. The similarities cannot be coincidental and reaffirms my assertion that you are not new here. Like “him, you are Lebanese (gotta say, the “siktir cük kafaly” was pretty good – likely taken from the the many Turkish posters there), are pro-Israel, have educated and well-off Jewish friends, wish the demise of Lebanon, are bent over to the US, respond the same way to specific comments (i.e. Zionist owing the media, etc), etc — and needless to say, your absolute contempt for Hind.

          • Omega

            Rather, a pattern emerged after 20 or so comments.

            p.s.: I see you like the American feminine pop culture a lot.

          • Rainbow Sponge

            “Rather, a pattern emerged after 20 or so comments.” Right okay so you saw a pattern after 20 comments, but I must have been here my whole life to see a “pattern” in Hind’s comments.

          • Omega

            Correct, a pattern observable with similarities in speech and approach.

            MekensehParty attacked Hind (more than once) with “languages” and so did you. Both of you are Lebanese, are pro-Israel, have educated/rich Jewish friends, are anti-Iran/Syria/Hezbollah, use identical responses to certain topics (I.e. Zionism (which I must add, you know nothing about)), etc. Coincidence?

            You can see a “pattern” in Hind’s comments on her Tweeter account when she complain that “Twitter deleted my pinned Tweet: “2014 Gaza massacre”.. is not fair” (Hind Abyad‏ @AbyadHind 2 dec. 2016)

            However it doesn’t work.

            It is well documented that Hindenburg is expressing hatred for Jews, Kurds and western governments and institutions like the European Union (who according to her are nazis).

            For your knowledge, almost one in three British Jews has considered moving abroad in the past two years, a survey has found.

            One in six British Jews (17%) reported feeling unwelcome in Britain and over a third (37%) said they had felt the need to conceal their Judaism in public.

            Student Jodeci says he feels ‘safe’ in Britain.

            Others in north London had dramatically different experiences.

            Jodeci, a student from Ilford, who wears a Jewish skullcup, said he was shocked by the finding that one in three Jews had considered emigrating.

            He said: “I’ve had an extremely good approach from people to the fact that I’m Jewish. I feel very safe here.”

            Earlier this year the Community Security Trust, another organisation which monitors anti-Semitism, recorded 1,309 incidents of anti-Jewish hate last year, compared with 960 in 2015 – a rise of 36%.

            They included 107 violent assaults and 65 incidents of damage and desecration to Jewish property, as well as more than 1,000 incidents of abusive behaviour in person and on social media.

            On August 1, the Palestinian Bedouin village of Al-Araqeeb was destroyed for the 116th time. As soon as Israeli bulldozers finished their ugly deed and soldiers began evacuating the premises, the village resident immediately began rebuilding their homes.

            Do the Palestinians demolish lands stolen and occupied by the “Jews”? Why can’t the Palestinians live everywhere but not the Jews? Are you delusional? The Zionists stole most of the initial partition, more in 1967 and continue grabbing lands that belong to the inhabitants of the land. The Palestinians are confined in Gaza (where the population went from 32K to 2M due to being displaced) and cantons in the occupied West Bank.

            The pesky Kurds did in fact make significant land gain in Syria but for some reason, and after many decades, they still don’t understand that the land they conquer will always go to those who use them. Coincidentally, Mileikowsky (aka Netanyahu) recently expressed his “love” for the Kurds lately. Israel, too, needs the Kurds as a to-be-dumped-again “ally”.

          • Rainbow Sponge

            Netanyahu expressed support for the Iraqi Kurds, irrelevant. Barzani is anti YPG.

          • Omega

            True, he did but it’s not irrelevant. The last paragraph of my previous comment was not in relation to Syria but to using the Kurds to further geo-political aspirations. I thought I added a separating line (done now).

            An independent Kurdish state in Iraq would be done on “disputed territories” (Sinjar to West Mosul up to Khanaqin) bordering the Iranian border. The Kirkuk region happens, nicely, to be rich in oil as well. All of which for the Kurds on the surface but for the Anglo-American in reality.

            The Original ‘No’: Why the Arabs Rejected Zionism, and Why It Matters

            http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-1.538966

            The Palestinians did not favor war. From February 1st to May 14th, the Zionists attacked and seized 400+ Palestinian towns/villages. On May 15th, the surrounding Arab countries intervened in Palestine (not Israel) to restore peace. Worth nothing that Israel was self-declared without any legal authority.

            • Israel attacked surrounding countries then lied it was attacked. All to steal/occupy more Arab lands. See:

          • Rudy1947

            The Ottomans never owned any land they conquered and the Palestinians never spoke out about the Arab help they received from Arab nations that assisted their own militias. The Arabs made severely bad choices, both politically and militarily, are are still making bad choices.

          • Omega

            The Palestinians have tried since the mid-1800s to gain independence from the Ottomans but to no avail. Hence why they teamed up with the Brits to help push the Ottomans out of Palestine. In exchange, the Palestinians were promised an independent land.

            Militias within Palestine did fight the terrorist Haganah but there was no civil war between the Palestinians/Arabs and the Zionists as the imposed narrative stipulates. It’s only after the Zionists attacked/seized 400+ Palestinian towns/villages and illegally self-declared Independence that the surrounding Arab countries entered Palestine to restore peace (which then turned to war).

          • Rudy1947

            The Palestinians then failed at that as well.

            TelAviv was bombed by the Egyptian Air Force. The Palestinians had plenty of help.

          • Omega

            The Palestinians didn’t seek independence from the Ottomans by force of arm.

            The Egyptian Air Force’s bombing was considered a non-lieu.

            I disagree that the Palestinians had help up until May 14 but agree that they did afterwards. Also, the technical cleansing of the land was planned by the Zionists since 1937, it didn’t happen in the heat of battle.

          • Rudy1947

            Regardless of the method, they did not succeed.

            A “non-lieu”? I’m sure the people in Tel Aviv were saying that as the bombs fell and then exploded.

            The Palestinians had militias at the time and had plenty of help with subsequent battles. The Arabs lost and have been finding excuses since.

          • Omega

            Never said otherwise.

            Very little damage occurred from the bombing, hence why it was considered so.

            Up until May 14th, Palestinian militias fought the terrorist Jewish Underground within Palestine and to thwart attacks on towns and villages. They clearly didn’t have the means to withstand the Zionists and that is why they begged the surrounding Arab countries to help. None moved a muscle until May 15th.

          • Rudy1947

            Very little damage…..charming. A couple of them were shot down, I guess just a little damage.

            TEL AVIV, May 15, 1948 (UP) — The battle for Palestine was on today with troops from Egypt, Trans-Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq converging against the Jewish defenders of the new state of Israel.

            Arab planes bombed Tel Aviv three times and one Egyptian pilot was taken prisoner when his plane was forced down just north of the new Jewish capital.

            The Egyptian government in Cairo announced officially that Egyptian planes raided the newborn state of Israel in the forefront of an Arab attack from all sides, including one raid on a Jewish airdrome outside Tel Aviv.

            Two Egyptian ground forces, with infantry and artillery, drove across the borders of Palestine, and Cairo report claimed that one of them “wiped out” the Jewish village of Auja, on the road to Beersheba, when its defenders refused to surrender.

            Jewish sources here had no information on this fighting. Auja is just across the Palestine border from Sinai, and would have been in Jewish territory under the United Nations partition plan.

            Jewish sources said direct Arab-Jewish negotiations for a truce in Jerusalem were started after Jews captured virtually all strongpoints abandoned by the British in the city.

            Egyptian troops spearheaded the Arab assault, attempting an amphibious landing 21 miles south of Tel Aviv and crashing across the southern Palestine border at two points.

            Syrian and Lebanese troops roared down across the northern frontier several hours before the midnight deadline, riding into battle in 150 armored trucks.

            King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan sent his Arab Legion and Iraqi regulars slicing across the eastern frontier “to liberate the Holy Land from Zionism.”

            In Cairo, the spiritual head of the Moslems declared “the hour for jihad (Holy war) has struck.”

            Jewish forces met the attack on their frontiers by fighting for footroom within Palestine. In swift thrusts they captured Acre, most of Jerusalem and took over Haifa and Jaffa.

            Other attacks were launched to clear the highway to Jerusalem and against the Arab triangle pointed to Tulkarm in the north, which threatens the coastal plain.

            The first Egyptian air raid on Tel Aviv came early today. Four planes attacked at 300-foot altitude, two dropping bombs and the others strafing. Little damage resulted.

            A second attack came within two hours, and the Egyptian planes bombed the airport just north of this new Jewish capital, damaging one Air France plane.

            A third raid came before noon, but the attacking planes were driven off without causing damage. The Egyptian air force was believed probing Jewish air defenses.

            King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan, supreme commander of the Arab invasion forces, gave his troops the order to march at one minute after midnight. However, Abdullah’s Arab Legion already was inside Palestine and scored a major victory by capturing four Jewish settlements 10 miles south of Jerusalem.

            Abdullah paced his invasion from the east with a 24-hour ultimatum to two Jewish strongpoints near the border to surrender. One was the major settlement of Maharayim, five miles northeast of Safad. The other was the Pinhas Rutenberg hydro-electric plant on the Jordan River six miles south of the Sea of Galilee.

            Both strongholds rejected the ultimatum. The electric plant supplies most of Palestine’s electricity.

            Jewish Haganah forced marked their self-declared sovereignty with heavy attacks of their own. Special Irgun Zvai Leumi mechanized forces in the north also launched a heavy attack along a 15-mile front between Tulkarm and Kfar Sava, capturing five Arab villages in what was described as the first Jewish assault on purely Arab territory in the Holy Land.

            Reports from Haganah forces in southern Palestine said the Egyptian attempt to land amphibious troops was made at Isdud, 21 miles south of Tel Aviv.

            A ship bringing Egyptian forces was engaged by Haganah forces and driven off, these reports said.

            Reports from Cairo said Egyptian army forces had captured Deir el Balah, on the coast of 12 miles north of the Egyptian border, and Auja, just inside the Palestine border and 30 miles inland from the coast.

            Egyptian planes paced large land forces entering Palestine, Cairo dispatches said. The planes showered leaflets on Jewish areas demanding that the Jews surrender.

            Reports on the Jewish defeat at Kfar Ezion, under attack for three days by the Arab Legion, said that they surrendered to King Abdullah early today.

            About 100 defenders were believed killed, about 200 more were taken prisoner. The International Red Cross helped transfer about 100 wounded Jews, as well as 90 women, to Jerusalem.
