Hezbollah official: What happend at the airport is normal

Share:

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General Naim Qassem told Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai in an interview to be published on Thursday that what happened on Saturday at Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport was normal. It “was to stop some parties from taking advantage of the Lebanese judiciary.”

Tension between the Future Movement and Hezbollah ran high after armed Hezbollah bodyguards received former General Security chief Jamil as-Sayyed who is wanted by the Lebanese judiciary at the VIP launch of Beirut’s Rafik Hariri International Airport without the needed permission from the ministry of Foreign affairs .

Sayyed, who had just returned from France, was summoned by Attorney General Judge Said Mirza for questioning following the former’s September 12 statement, in which he attacked Hariri. Hezbollah on Friday called for the judiciary to revoke the summons.

“What happened was normal. A number of political figures were at the reception, and they have bodyguards. Therefore, this was nothing unusual,” Qassem told the daily, adding, “To us, we are showing our solidarity with Sayyed. This is what it was. Whoever wants to explain it differently, let them.”

The Hezbollah official also said that following Sayyed’s criticism of Prime Minister Saad Hariri on September 12, “ March 14 figures could have easily responded with their criticism rather than insult Sayyed .”

STL

Qassem stressed on Wednesday that the party has not yet voiced its final position over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon as it is still waiting the Saudi efforts that are aimed at thwarting its politicization and the issuing of an “unjust indictment.”

He said that his party believes in the need to guard civil peace and support the national-unity government.“Our goal is to build state institutions based on cooperation, but there are pending issues such as STL and Israel’s hand in it.”

Hezbollah had to take a clear position on Lebanon’s funding for the STL, he said, adding, “The one thing we want in Hezbollah is not to have the court become a tool in the hands of the US administration and not be politicized.”

Qassem touched on the recent contacts made by Speaker Nabih Berri and Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt to bring Hariri and Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah together, saying, “Talks are ongoing, but there is nothing specific.”

“We consider the false witnesses file the key to settling this issue and since everyone has agreed that they are a problem, then why are our demands considered so impossible to fulfill?” he asked.

  1. Although I think that Sami Gemayel’s speech was totally uncalled for (especially just a few days before the commemoration of Sabra and Chatila) the Hizb’s reaction is to be strongly condemed. I guess it is now very clear as to who is the true ruler of this cursed land !

    Tfeh!

      1. Maria if Hezbollah attack any members that we favors God help them. We might not be strong as them, but we will respond accordingly. we will also attack them in the same way. Let there be war and will kill them one by one if that’s what it takes. This is from George Haddad in New Jersy and I am proud member of the LF. We have had enough and if they kill anymore we will attack their innocents too if that’s what it takes to make them stop. Its going to be two eyes for each eye and we will turn their lives upside down.

          George you spend so much time making points against Hizzy yet you make this comment and it shows me that you can be worse. No matter war or no war, innocent people should always be excluded. That becomes murder and not self defense. If you are proud LF member.. then you should also be first and foremost a devout Christian. And that would mean that you understand and PRACTICE the concept of Mercy, especially towards innocent lives regardless of confession or race, or background.

          I look at the Hizzy and I say they are a bunch of Zo3ran because they act upon what you are saying..

        2. George I dont believe 2 wrongs make a right but this situation is getting quite hot and I think that hizzy might just takeover and overthrow the libon government and takeover beirut. I cant see them venturing off to takeover the whole country but they will install a puppet government they can control. Unfortunately there is nothing that can stop them, this cancer has spread so bad that its untreatable and the people are tired of war and are way under equipped to do anything about it. Syria disarmed most of the country while arming the cancer.

          George, Maria’s right – 2 wrongs don’t make it right, and clearly Hezbollah is not going to be defeated with weapons. If it were that easy, someone would have taken care of the militia already. Plus it’s not like there were any acts of revenge after Pierre was murdered several years back, rightfully so. Clearly this tribunal is forcing the guilty to act oh so guilty. Let them sweat, their days are numbered.

  3. The Iranian party is a wicked party ,don’t forget this sect teach lying when necessary and to hide head and kill when powerful,
    they knpw well Gemayel is recalling a past event and we already got over it in 1990 , Kataeb used Israel so is Amal when they fought the P:O in the south, do not forget that more than 1/2 of Saad Haddad army was shiites .
    All what the Iranian party is doing is changing the subject using any excuse to disrup the peace and fail the country. What the Iranian party achieved for Lebanon since year 2000 other than terror, what they contribute to the building of the country, for year and a half camping downtown and peeing in their tent they paralyzed the country and cause a loss of over 3 billio dollars in revenue in the name of what.They want to kill the court simply them and Syria , the wicked ,killers ,deceivers , day by day the killing of Hariri and all Cedar re leader point at them , they are behaving typically as the guilty party ,an innocent man is a corageous man ,but they are not because they are the killers ,no one else , that;s why Mugnie died and Ghazi Kenaan to hide the evidence and traceability

  5. How is it normal to defy the will of your own government and the will of the people and snub your nose at the LAFs and ISFs knowing that they would not fire at you your acts of defiance is destroying their morale. But excuse me, this IS what you want, isn’t it?
