Saudi Arabia urges its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately

The Saudi Arabian embassy in Beirut has urged its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately , citing concerns over security in a country shaken by the uprising in neighbouring Syria.

This development comes after the military wing of the al Mikdad family which is closely linked to Hezbollah said it had abducted at least 20 Syrian rebels and threatened to kidnap Qatari, Saudi and Turkish nationals to swap them for their missing kin.

Al- Mikdad clan also announced on Wednesday that it has abducted near Beirut a Turkish national of the Soufan family, media reports stated.

Interior minister Marwan Charbel tried to mediate with Al- Mikdad clan the release of the kidnapped Syrian , but the clan refused to meet with him.

    This seems it is going to get ugly, because of this tribal behavior from this Mikdad family who wants to impliment its own law in the country with the tacit approval of Hizbullah. The law of the lawlessness is going to prevail because of these ignorants who have arms in their hands and the government cannot force them to give their arms unless a blood bath takes place. What a cahotic situation Hizbullah has put us in ! Only in Lebanon if a Lebanese is abducted in another country we adbuct innocent people from that country who are either visitors, or seeking to work and live innocently, in order to have our own released. Imagine in this happens in any western or even other Arab country: A french man gets kidnapped lets say in Yemen, the family of this man in France would kidnap any Yemeni in France to assure the release of their son in Yemen….as we say: Sahriaat  Al-Ghab…..(the law of the wild). Poor Lebanon who is controlled by these armed thugs that know no law, no order, and have no credibility. They act all the time irresponsibly and drag the whole country with them.

    The country is down the tubes already when one drug-running family of ‘Al-Mikduds’ can run into the international airport and grab anyone they want to. This bunch must have more weapons than Hezzyboola and the LAF combined. Are you quaking yet Nastyrallah? Nice airport security you have there ….

      Hey Jerk. We didn’t start this mess. But we will finish it one way or another. If we have to kidnapp every syrian, turkish, saudi and qatari national. Did you forget what the sunni’s /salafi’s did when security forces kidnapped the terrorist Chadi Mawlawi, they turned the neighbourhood upside down. If that is what they can do you haven’t seen anything yet. You just f**ked with the wrong family.

        Maybe you didn’t start it. Would also have been nicer for you, I admit, if the smuggling routes didn’t get bottled up so much. Wreaking your own house because of bad business sure makes a lot of sense to a bunch of … what was it? … Oh … yah … McDuds. 😉

    Just wish Iran advised all their citizens in Lebanon to leave also. And at the same time, take with them those Hezbollah terrorist they keep paying for. Then Lebanon will be free of thugs and criminals.

      193 countries in the world, Out of them only 4 or 5 have Hezbollah listed as a Terrorist group USA Israel Canada and about 2 more. They are not Terrorist you can keep saying they from now till the end of time and it will not change!

        Oh sure Moe … doesn’t it depend on the ‘parade of the day’ which way they might be viewed?
        Giving some bread out might make them heros … at least until they stick a gun in your face and say ‘bow down’. Which they have done in Lebanon before this; as well as with the cross-border events staged on occasion.
        And if you bow to the threat, then you have succumbed to the terror implicit in it. What would happen now if everyone simply said ‘no’ when told to bow? Nothing, I suppose, if they are not terrorists. Right?
        Try that for an experiment next time you are confronted by a bunch of them ….
