Hezbollah official: Balance of power shifted in Lebanon

Share:

During the ceremony commemorating marking the third anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah military commander Imad Fayez Mughniyeh’s , Hezbollah official Nabil Qaouq said: The balance of power today has changed as the Resistance now enjoys a popular and parliamentary majority.

Commenting on the formation of the new cabinet he said:

“The new government in Lebanon should help remove the country from the American minefield.”

Mughniyeh was killed on February 12, 2008 by a car bomb, planted inside the driver’s headrest, around 11:00 pm local time in the Kfar Suseh neighborhood of Damascus, Syria. As Mughniyah reportedly passed the car on foot, the bomb was detonated. Mughniyeh’s body parts were later found scattered across the street.

Mughniyeh was included in the European Union’s list of wanted terrorists and had a US$5 million bounty on the FBI Most Wanted Terrorists list.

The Iranian- and Syrian-backed Hezbollah brought down PM Saad Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s ( STL) indictment which is widely expected to implicate Hezbollah members in the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri in 2005 .

Nagib Mikati, who was backed by Hezbollah and its March 8 allies including Jumblatt and Mohammad Safadi, was appointed by president Michel Suleiman as PM-designate to form and head the next cabinet , giving Hezbollah and its allies increased leverage in the country and provoking widespread protests.

Jumblatt who, along with his parliamentary bloc had the decisive vote in the naming of PM designate was reportedly subjected to repeated threats by Hezbollah.

  1. Yes of course, the new government will help remove Lebanon from the American minefield to the Syrian and Iranian Minefield a dictatorship who rule their people by hanging and jailing them for no reason. What a future LEbanon will have based on HA logic?
    Power may be shifted for now but the Lebanese people and international communities will not allow you to prevail

    Hezbollah should be ashamed of itself as it claims that Israel killed Imad Fayez Mughniyeh while Syria up to date have not proven that. It has not even produced a clear report that Israel was behind it. Yet on the contrary we hear Syria was behind it because Imad Fayez Mughniyeh had too much on Hariri killings and also part of the planner behind the assassination. Even there were no Syrian officials during his funeral and rumors then that HA was ready to break relationship with Syria. Even Mughniyeh wife accused Syria of killing him to be silenced later on by Iranian officials. Syrian officials did not allow Iranian top dogs to investigate the killing for few months then. Where is March 8th screaming bloody Syria? where are you cowards?
    Qaouq says that HA enjoys popular and Majority votes.. yes during the Ottman empire it ruled the arabs for many years under the rules of Canon and it also believed it was very popular too. First if you’re going to say popular you cannot be serious because lots of people are afraid of HA. Second Parlimentary Majority under the gun is the silent majority and dares not to nod its head in agreements with the the Thugs of HA.

  9. You 14-March and Zionist people should stop to think that the assasination of martyr Hariri is the hub of lebanese history and therefore you should stop to spread “this has got to do with hariri”-arguments to no matter what happens. This affects your credibility. That martyr Mughniye’s death has got something to do with hariris bombing is the most unrealistic speculation I have ever heard. Do you also believe in aliens? The only thing that the murder of Mughniye and the murder of Hariri has in commom is that his planners sit in Tel Aviv and Langley, Virginia

    1. It certainly does seem you believe in aliens

      No you stupid idiots his assassins are in Damascus and you can believe whatever you like. The hard proofs in the putting and Syria has not proven in any way shape or form that Israel was behind it. As a matter of facts, I heard Syria did this as a favor for Israel. Besides Nassrallah and Mughniye were arch rivals especially when the first was removed during the war and the latter was appointed by Iran to head the war room. I am sure that didn’t fit well the big ego of Nassrallah. stop fooling yourself and everyone and wake to reality. You’re going to be indicted and in time you will go to jail shackled like animals you are and where you and your peasent low life Hezbollah come from.

      1. Thanks for the insults. Though some fruitful argumentation would have been more interesting…

    Mr Qaouq, don’t relish so much in this shift which your organization has brought about through intimidation and threats. With the tide of change gathering pace in the Middle East your organization’s days as well as those of your backers could be numbered.

    A surprise overthrow of the government in Syria is going to send you packing. Then I would like to see you barking the way you are after that.
