Another 11 Lebanese ISF officers graduate from US training program

The US embassy in Beirut issued a press release in which it said 11 another Internal Security Forces (ISF) officers completed the U.S. – Lebanese Supervision and Management Course and that The U.S. instruction team has trained over 7,600 ISF members in basic and advanced leadership courses since January 2008.

Here is the press release:

On July 15, 2011, 11 Officers completed the 13th U.S. – Lebanese Supervision and Management Course, including 8 who also completed the Instructors course, at the Internal Security Forces (ISF) Academy in Warwar. Director of the Office of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Programs Thaddeus Kontek congratulated them upon their graduation.

The U.S. instruction team has trained over 7,600 ISF members in basic and advanced leadership courses since January 2008. Officers learn the latest technical and leadership skills and how to apply these to on-the-job situations. The training program curriculum includes modern police practices, understanding democratic policing and human rights, criminal investigation procedures and other essential law enforcement skills.

The current $132 million U.S. assistance program to the ISF strengthens the ISF and is part of the overall U.S. security assistance program to Lebanon. The law enforcement assistance program assists the ISF to enforce the rule of law and protect the Lebanese people. The professional development of the ISF is critical for Lebanon’s sovereignty, independence and security.

        my book it’s the num 4 of the “International Zioiniste Review” in it you have the piture of Herzl receiving the dear doctor Hitler great son of Rabbi S.Hitler of the Guemarra (i signal for your govern the one who wrote about the importance of the details just because there is 2 rabbis Hitler in the Guemarra)and he was with his son Adolph nine years

          My relationship with God is personal … and I don’t live in Israel. And I would prefer not to read obviously slanted titles – which that one must be, as it has the word ‘Zionist’ in it … perhaps I will try to find it somewhere.
            But do you think perhaps they are simply trying to be factual there? You know .. for the sake of accurate history? 
          Can you accept the past without injecting it into the future so often when ‘the discussion’ here is largely trying to find a way to have functional government ‘for the people’ without all the religious crap in it?
            Did you read what that course teaches? One part stands out (understanding democratic policing and human rights) and you should consider what that means – especially for Lebanon. Don’t give us the ‘size of the bomb’ theories over and over (ad infinitum) as we heard you the first time, and the relevance for this story doesn’t exist.

    Do  we have   the right to question  the loyalty  of  any  officer  trained  outside of the  country  by a foreign  army  ?

    • 5thDrawer

      Inside the military, that is something questioned all the time – everywhere.
        One could think there is always a danger in this – both to the training country, and the trained – as politicians can be so fickle in alliances and their use of the military –  but since WWII especially, it has been seen by ‘Professional Military’ people as a benefit to both countries. It is not so much a case of ‘knowing your enemy’ as ‘meeting different minds’ and enjoying the fruits of that for all involved. It helps to get rid of ‘pre-conceptions’ of your allies as well.
        Since we assume ‘alliance’ is more beneficial than ‘distrust’ for all our people, and peace is better than war, we can welcome the peace of mind good and varied training will give for our respective military men and women.
      (oh … well … women eventually, of course 😉

          Ok .. you’re an ass.
          Military minds will train anywhere there’s a military … they like it.
          Military minds also like to contribute (in service) something to their country. It’s beneficial to all the people.
          How their politicians abuse them is a different matter … 

          Oh … and by the way … countries should only have one army in service, and one police force in service.
          And I guess I need to add … IN SERVICE for ALL the people.

    The training these officers receive is useless unless they think as Lebanese and not as Maronites, Sunnis,  Shiites or any religion they happen to be.
    The reason the Lebanese army can”t take Hesbollah weapons away because the army is not united and the minute stife happen they brake up into different groups depending on their religion.
    That is the reason  the Army or  Security Forces can not be relied on .

      You are absolutely right, it all comes down to whether we can build a national identity or not.
      Had Lebanon had a national identity that all Lebanese relate to, We wouldn’t have had any  of the civil wars, nor could Israel  have invaded  and  divided  us ,hence the need  for a resistance would not  have  been a divisive  issue.

      • 5thDrawer

        Would have worked if the Syrians had left it the way the French made it after WWI ….

        Now it takes a lot more resolve … and ‘discussion’ …

        (see way below)
        And to good old confrontational Leo – be – t -par …
        Hard to imagine the place getting smaller … but they just did it in Sudan. Maybe that will work.
        Seems the idiots in the south enjoy being under fire all the time …

        (see below)
        To Prophet T …
        Sorry … Leo evokes silly responses … I apologize.
        And I remember the old tin shacks that made up the refugee camps ….
        For sure nothing has been ‘politically correct’ for aeons … and REAL restructuring needs to take place. In MINDS.
        Can we get the religions out of it? Can the so-called ‘politicians’ set those aside from their running of a country FOR the people who wish to live there? If Israel wants to be a ‘Jewish State’ in it’s idiocy, does Lebanon HAVE to be a ‘Muslim OR WHATEVER State’ to ‘resist’ and have sovereignty? In 2011 is Israel really looking to expand it’s borders and cost itself more lives and money to do so? If Lebanon could ‘get it together’ wouldn’t that be enough ‘resistance’?
        It’s all very stupid. Maybe why I pump in silly comments from time to time … might as well join the crowd.
        And that’s depressing …

        • leobetapar

          the way of the french was the division So what do you ask a separation of the north libanon from the south and let alone the shia with the Zioniaste entity? is it that?

        • PROPHET.T

          5THDrawer,
          People in the south have been left defenseless, helpless for years when Lebanese were priding themselves of their ‘Paris of the middle east”. For sixty some  years, the  south  was  neglected and defenseless, and no one did anything  about it except sending  blankets and  some  rotten  rice, and expired  powdered milk. You need  to  re-read  your  own  history  with Israel and its  aggression. I don’t remember the last time Lebanon invaded Israel and occupied part  of it, nor do I remember the  last time Lebanese air force violated and  flew over Israeli  airspace. If  you  do,  please  refresh  my  memory.
          So let’s  be realistic  here, we  always  had an irresponsible   state, weak  army, and the southerners were never  counted  as  part of this  nation. Now that they did defend themselves and succeeded, everyone became uncomfortable with their presence and their successes.
          I reiterate when I  said in  my  previous  comments, we need a common  national identity,   a reformed nonsectarian political  structure  that  makes  every one feel part  of this  nation,  modern  electoral  law where  everyone feels  counted, true representation   where  everyone is politician and official is accountable, and where   everyone  shares  same  responsibilities and  duties, and  everyone enjoys same   rights. We  need a law and order  state where  everyone is under the law, from  the  president  down  to  the  average  citizen.
          Lebanon needs  to  be  rebuild, and restructured  in  many different  ways, so we can have a unified  nation, and a  strong  army that  can  defend the land  and its  people. The old  formula has  failed, and will continue to fail.
          As for your comparison to Sudan, dividing the country can never work for many reasons. You  also  need  to  remember that others  have the  right  to  disagree with  you, without being  looked  at  as  enemies. Would  you  have  recommended  dividing  the  country  in  the  sixties when others  didn’t  count? I BET NOT.

      • leobetapar

        there is nothing as absolute national identity even in contry like France let alone arab country  Where ia the national identity of Lybia today
        you have to build with the diversity in 3 century shia will be shia ,maronites will be maronites and so on

      • Beiruti

        You  also  need  to  remember that others  have the  right  to  disagree with  you, without being  looked  at  as  enemies. -PROPHET.T
        I agree, but at the same time can we disagree without being called Zionists, or Anti-Shi’ite, Anti-Palestine, some cases by people on this website i was considered a Mossad Agent by some people due to the fact i am Anti-HA and Anti-PLO. 

        Lebanon’s a toilet, it will keep spinning until all the shit is flushed. Lets face it, history proves that a civil war stains a countries history and people. In Spain for example a lot of division was caused, but tell me one Spanish person that even gives a sh*t what happened in Spain.

        After the civil war generation is all dead, people like me and you. And after all the fanatical teenagers influenced by their parents nowadays who blindly support sh*t here and there are all gone Lebanon will be better. In 100-200 years Lebanon will either laugh or not give a shit when they hear words like PLO, Phalange, LF, HA, Amal, etc, etc.  

        Most Lebanese dont give a shit anymore about the news, i dont even read newpaper anymore. Politics is almost like Sports, tell me one soccer player that loved his fans and supporters more than his money. Its become a joke in general, i honestly dont care much. But i still say no to HA arms, its becoming disgusting here i dont know if you live in Lebanon or not, but for ex whats happening alot is you have little Shi’ite thugs here acting like they run everything because their “uncles second cousin knows someone from Hezbollah” and using this as a threat. 

        Lebanese people are the biggest winners eh? Yet the ones who say that probably killed their own brother because he married a women of a different religion. We dont have much a proud history, we were created in 1943, and the everyones Lebanon is diferent lol.

        • PROPHET.T

          Beiruti,
          I have never preached what I don’t practice. I have always carried my discussion with you and others without throwing insults , accusations, or name calling. As a matter of fact, I was so discouraged by the level of insults and accusations ,thrown by some, to the point of deciding to stop commenting anymore. For a while I did stop, and when I fall for the temptation, I only reply to serious people.
          I have always urged people to keep this site a discussion site instead of insult site. If anyone ever felt insulted by something I said, it never was my intention to offend or insult anyone. I believe in agreeing to disagree, and respect other people’s views.

        There are Shiites in the Lebanese army, like there are Maronites, Druzes,Sunnis and other religions . They are trying to integrate Hezbollah  in the Lebanese army to no avail because they take their orders from outside Lebanon.

          to integrate the great good who defeat the little shaytan in a army who have never ever fighjt any outside ennemies who can only plunder palestinian refugies??????????

        Hezbollah is not part of the Army and will never be a part of the Army. Its only a matter of time now before HA will no longer exist. Yugoslavia was torn into shreds by the same court as the stl and they tried the same tricks. cut funding, take the government by force, denounce the court until Milosivic died in prison. Now if you think HA is stronger than Yugoslavia then youre truly mad.

          you are very very weak in logic if you want to compare you have to do so equalling Yougoslavia with Lebanon and not with HA,and the different fractions with the milicia >If you was looking adequatly you will have seen that in fact the one who are acting exactly like the serbs are the sunnites i am eager to see the OTAN bombing the useless sunnites

    • 5thDrawer

      The fact it incorporates all people of the country called ‘Lebanon’ is a step in the right direction to being a ‘National’ Army for a Nation … without their myriad religions getting in the way of duty to country. That’s what should make it ‘united’. And we have seen they are succeeding in keeping ‘strife’ down to a minimum.

For sixty some  years, the  south  was  neglected and defenseless, and no one did anything  about it except sending  blankets and  some  rotten  rice, and expired  powdered milk. You need  to  re-read  your  own  history  with Israel and its  aggression. I don’t remember the last time Lebanon invaded Israel and occupied part  of it, nor do I remember the  last time Lebanese air force violated and  flew over Israeli  airspace. If  you  do,  please  refresh  my  memory.
          So let’s  be realistic  here, we  always  had an irresponsible   state, weak  army, and the southerners were never  counted  as  part of this  nation. Now that they did defend themselves and succeeded, everyone became uncomfortable with their presence and their successes.
          I reiterate when I  said in  my  previous  comments, we need a common  national identity,   a reformed nonsectarian political  structure  that  makes  every one feel part  of this  nation,  modern  electoral  law where  everyone feels  counted, true representation   where  everyone is politician and official is accountable, and where   everyone  shares  same  responsibilities and  duties, and  everyone enjoys same   rights. We  need a law and order  state where  everyone is under the law, from  the  president  down  to  the  average  citizen.
          Lebanon needs  to  be  rebuild, and restructured  in  many different  ways, so we can have a unified  nation, and a  strong  army that  can  defend the land  and its  people. The old  formula has  failed, and will continue to fail.
          As for your comparison to Sudan, dividing the country can never work for many reasons. You  also  need  to  remember that others  have the  right  to  disagree with  you, without being  looked  at  as  enemies. Would  you  have  recommended  dividing  the  country  in  the  sixties when others  didn’t  count? I BET NOT.

        I agree, but at the same time can we disagree without being called Zionists, or Anti-Shi’ite, Anti-Palestine, some cases by people on this website i was considered a Mossad Agent by some people due to the fact i am Anti-HA and Anti-PLO. 

        Lebanon’s a toilet, it will keep spinning until all the shit is flushed. Lets face it, history proves that a civil war stains a countries history and people. In Spain for example a lot of division was caused, but tell me one Spanish person that even gives a sh*t what happened in Spain.

        After the civil war generation is all dead, people like me and you. And after all the fanatical teenagers influenced by their parents nowadays who blindly support sh*t here and there are all gone Lebanon will be better. In 100-200 years Lebanon will either laugh or not give a shit when they hear words like PLO, Phalange, LF, HA, Amal, etc, etc.  

        Most Lebanese dont give a shit anymore about the news, i dont even read newpaper anymore. Politics is almost like Sports, tell me one soccer player that loved his fans and supporters more than his money. Its become a joke in general, i honestly dont care much. But i still say no to HA arms, its becoming disgusting here i dont know if you live in Lebanon or not, but for ex whats happening alot is you have little Shi’ite thugs here acting like they run everything because their “uncles second cousin knows someone from Hezbollah” and using this as a threat. 

        Lebanese people are the biggest winners eh? Yet the ones who say that probably killed their own brother because he married a women of a different religion. We dont have much a proud history, we were created in 1943, and the everyones Lebanon is diferent lol.

          Beiruti,
          I have never preached what I don’t practice. I have always carried my discussion with you and others without throwing insults , accusations, or name calling. As a matter of fact, I was so discouraged by the level of insults and accusations ,that many people resort to, the point of deciding to stop commenting anymore. For a while I did stop, and when I fall for the temptation, I only reply to serious people.
          I have always urged people to keep this site a discussion site instead of insult site. If anyone ever felt insulted by something I said, it never was my intention to offend or insult anyone. I believe in agreeing to disagree, and respect other people’s views.

        What army? The Syrian or the Iranian army?
        There are Shiites in the Lebanese army, like there are Maronites, Druzes,Sunnis and other religions . They are trying to integrate Hezbollah  in the Lebanese army to no avail because they take their orders from outside Lebanon.

        Hezbollah is not part of the Army and will never be a part of the Army. Its only a matter of time now before HA will no longer exist. Yugoslavia was torn into shreds by the same court as the stl and they tried the same tricks. cut funding, take the government by force, denounce the court until Milosivic died in prison. Now if you think HA can is stronger than Yugoslavia then youre truly mad.

          you are very very weak in logic if you want to compare you have to do so equalling Yougoslavia with Lebanon and not with HA,and the different fractions with the milicia >If you was looking adequatly you will have seen that in fact the one who are acting exactly like the serbs are the sunnites i am eager to see the OTAN bombing the useless sunnites

      The fact it incorporates all people of the country called ‘Lebanon’ is a step in the right direction to being a ‘National’ Army for a Nation … without their myriad religions getting in the way. That’s what should make it ‘united’. And we have seen they are succeeding in keeping ‘strife’ down to a minimum.

    i welcome any training/aid/funds/equipment to LEBANESE officials/army/system etc. because as we all know, lebanon was not given a chance to develop ever since its establishment.

    what’s not right and in any other country, illegal, is to give this aid/funds/weapons/training to one particular party who thinks itself and its members above the LEBANESE laws and….. traditions.

    Are you people here for real??
    How can you compare iran to USA. It’s chalk and cheese.
    What has iran contributed to the modern world besides oppression and stoning women for petty crimes.
    Besides, what does iran have anything to do with Lebanon?? There has been a long standing history between Lebanon and the USA to say the least!!
    Despite that relationship, I agree that we should not be training in other countries by foreign governments. We are capable of doing things on our own, but as usual and as a failed state, we have to rely on others for basic needs.
