Jumblatt: Hezbollah should learn from Norway’s tragedy

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblatt said that Norway’s tragedy should serve as a “lesson” to some regime leaders who do not understand the importance of political reform, and who continue to “violently confront” the rightful demands of their people.

Jumblatt stressed on Monday the importance of the equation of the army, people, and Resistance, demanding that the recent terrorist attacks in Norway serve as a lesson to some regime leaders “who don’t understand the importance of reform.”

He said in his weekly editorial in the PSP-affiliated al-Anbaa magazine: “The weapons must be gradually incorporated in the official armed forces, since using [non-state] arms domestically is an adventure that can never succeed, no matter what the circumstances are.”

Such a defense strategy would strengthen Lebanon, and put an end to some of the Lebanese people’s fears, the PSP leader added.

On the Norway attacks, the MP noted that the intolerance of some parties and individuals can lead to catastrophes, saying that the developments that preceded the attacks needed to be studied.

On Friday, a Christian extremist attacked a youth camp in Norway, killing 93 people in a shooting that has shocked the country.

“This bigotry can lead some people to act in a violent, terrorist, and crazy manner,” continued Jumblatt.

He hoped that the Norway tragedy serve as a lesson to some regime leaders who don’t understand the importance of reform, “and who continue on violently confronting the people’s rightful demands.”

    Well … it does look like a home-grown ‘terrorist’ … but that brain would have found a reason to blow up the world just to make a statement eventually – let’s say if the government banned pesticides and there had been what it thought were too many weeds on it’s lawn. One of those brains which is desperately alone in any crowd. One excuse or another … it was only a matter of finding what it thought was a ’cause’ to kill for, and then saying ‘Here am I’.  Truly mad. At least as far as society is concerned.
    But I don’t think any kind of political reform would change that.

    And the pendulum seems to have swung to the other side again

      Seems more like someone desperately trying to hold a ‘middle-ground’ … and not winning with either side in a conflict between 2 radically different lines of thought. One needs to choose at some point, but he hates to have to. This is understandable when with small groups of friends who have similar backgrounds but different experiences get together and the one who is the host needs to keep a socially conscious median level of conversation going, so that the party will be considered successful by all. 
      Jumblatt might have made a good Ambassador …. but he won’t be forgiven as a politician.

    Jumblat is the only Lebanese leader who can wake up every morning, stick his finger up in the air so that He can feel the direction of the wind , decide which  way  to swing, and get away with it. Being  a sect’s leader allows him to do that without having to worry about any embarrassment or explanation. He’d be welcome by either side no matter  how  often He  swings. You‘d wonder if He  practiced at some  swinger  club ,lol

    this is the flipflop master ,the only loyalty he has is to his own interrest,junblat will sell out his own father if he needs to survive , now he must have smelled the balance of power is shifting back to march14, so he is ready to change direction again ,he will be back to march14,soon if he dos,nt get killed by ha

      Mr. PHD NOT,
      How did you conclude that the “balance of power is shifting back to M14”?If jumbalt is sticking his finger up in the  air to feel which  way the wind  is  going ,it  does not  mean that the wind   is  shifting toward M14.
      M14 has lost its direction, and maybe its purpose. No wind could change that. Jumbalt is positioning himself for the possibility of regime change in Syria, no more and no less.

    He has the point that some frustrated Lebanese elements could retaliate at a Hezbollah trying to force itself on the majority of Lebanese.

    what is this Army, People and Resistance bullshit? If the people are supposed to help then why are we not getting any weapons and training? What are we all going to meet near the Khaldi bridge and march on Israel?????? This is a bullshit term used to justify the weapons HA have. Saying the people are included in the fight makes it look like any one is welcome into the resistance but in reality you have to be a Shia to even be considered…..

    Also message to Jumblat: CUT YOUR HAIR YOU LAZY COKE HEAD!!!

    In Lebanon an attack like the one in Norway would only be used to strike back. Lebanese are not that tolerant. Lets say a Sunni  went to a shia area acting alone and killed a bunch of people. No one would believe he was not under orders from a militia and revenge attacks would happen. It would lead to a civil war and thats why crazy people in Lebanon dont do crazy things like that. After all no one wants to be the person that started a civil war. HA would love an attack like this to happen to them so they can justify going on a rampage and finally finishing the other side off.
