Rival political parties in South Lebanon fight over liquor store

Share:

A fistfight erupted in the southern town of Houla in Marjeyoun when members of a party ordered the owner of a liquor store to close the shop, reported the Central News Agency. Two people were hurt in the quarrel and the store incurred some material damage.

The owner was saved when members of another party intervened to end the dispute.

Tensions between the two March 8 camp parties pervaded the town soon after the dispute, prompting the Lebanese army and Internal Security Forces to intervene, ease the tensions, and launch an investigation in the affair.

Meanwhile, a source from Houla told the news agency that the town is known for the diversity of its residents, rejecting the violation of this freedom by any side and attempts to transform it into a closed security zone.

    Wow, maybe some of the Shi8a people are finally waking up to what Hizballah is trying to do slowly but surely. Nasrallah brain wash these innocent people that are rying to live and raise their families, by telling them HA is the best thing in your life and you have no option to say NO we suggest. What a crock of shit. HA says that they don’t impose Islam on anyone or force them to be with them, but then keep pushing you till you leave. Well it is time for the Shi8a people to live their lives the way they want, not what HA wants. Maybe they don’t want to fight, they just want peace, did you ever think of that Mr. bo7she Nasrallah? A**Hole

    So the ‘street-turds’ want their own liquor stores now??  They can sell vitamin “P”(that’s beer, it doesn’t change color going through), this won’t draw the ‘fuzzy-face’s’ attention.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again if HA is to meet its demise it will be at the hands of the Lebanese Shiites. HA is only popular right now with Shiites because of the cash that it hands out to them. To what extent are they going to trade their treasured freedoms for these cash hand outs. Only time will tell. Besides I don’t know why HA is offended by these liquor stores. An incident has been related to me that during the civil war HA set out in west Beirut to close all liquor stores and confiscate their liquor only for it to end up being sold at stalls along the Ouzai highway. Maybe they’re back to their old tricks again to try and generate cash to fund their activities. What’s the matter Iran is becoming miserly???

      i hope you are right….but i have to say that this incident cannot be generalised. not all HA supporters sell alcohol and are bothers with HA’s transgression in the country.

      but as you say, time will tell.

    they want the liquor store closed but they do not mind encouraging drugs trafficking nor would they mind recieving funding from “non halal” means from foreign HA supporters!

    twisted logic!

    You only have your freedoms anywhere in Lebanon because they let you. They let you in order to keep a facade of legitimacy and to diffuse responsibility.
