Lebanon Mufti denounces the attack against the Army

Share:

mufti qabbani defThe Grand Mufti  of the Republic  Sheikh  Mohammad Rashid Qabbani denounced Monday the attack against the army that claimed the lives of over 17 soldiers and 25 gunmen in the southern city of Sidon.

“The attack against the army is a crime against Lebanon  ,” the  mufti said.

Qabbani also slammed  militant Islamist Sheikh Ahmad Al-Assir ’s call for Sunni soldiers to defect from the Army.

“The call on Sunnis to defect the army is a crime against the Sunnis and the Lebanese Army,” he stressed

Qabbani also called for an investigation into the Sidon events.

Assir  rose to prominence for his outspoken opposition to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his calls for disarming Hezbollah.

Lebanese army commandos seized Monday the Mosque complex belonging to Sheikh Assir in the southern coastal city of Sidon, in the second day of clashes between the military and gunmen loyal to the militant preacher that have claimed the lives of at least 17 soldiers and more than 25 gunmen.

      I wish you had that same attitude when your friends in the hezb killed a LA officer or when they didn’t give the army the political cover to go after the nahr el bared terrorists who were sent by their ally bashar when the later was still smuggling these scumbags from and to Iraq (at the time the likes of you called them heroes fighting the American occupation…) I wish you were so “shahem” when LA patrols are disarmed in dahyieh, when they can’t patrol the south unless given authorization from the hezb, when the LA and security forces can’t search for 4 terrorists who blew a van in the heart of the capital killing mps and bystanders, can’t go after a “criminal” that booby-trapped an elevator in badaro…
      your method of double-standards isn’t working if you haven’t noticed yet. your support of Hezbollah’s terrorism is the same as the support of a growing number of sunnis to the likes of assir.

            Or did you just throw in a sentence to evade your state of confusion?

    Like most of the religious weirdos, Assir did himself in.
    Although obviously hanging in the shadows for a while, his initial ‘rise to fame’ in ‘news reports’ with road&business-blocking ‘peaceful’ sit-ins to protest Shia guns drew such popularity that he thought he was moving up the ladder to success … even led a big pilgrimage to a ski-hill successfully, albeit with the army trying to clear & cover the path. (maybe he forgot that cool holiday)
    Getting headlines has often been a problem for ‘stars’, as we know. It all went to his head. SO then he made the error of finding his own guns and a bunch of other useful idiots to use them, and proclaimed the ‘Holy-Jihad-Crusade’ line. Oopsie.
    A week too late to throw the band-wagon into reverse now.

    El-Assir and his followers should be caught dead or alive. If alive should be tried and put in prison for life with mandatory hard work. This guy turned Sidon a hell place to live and dared to attack the army and kill 17 soldiers. What he did is pure treason. I hope the army wll “clean up” the Assir square in Saida once and for all and not allow this man or his followers any marge of maneouvre. Time to finish with him. So sorry for the soldiers who died for nothing at the hand of other “blind” Lebanese, who once again are executing “GOD’s will” in fighting the army. No matter how we turn and try to explain what happened we end up by realizing that the roots of this conflict is Islam and its teachings, which teaches muslims not to abide by the kuffar’s rules and the rawafed’s rules…and since the army is (mostly) controlled by christians and shiaa and then it is halal to fight it, and if you die fighting this army you’re going to heaven with 72 virgins waiting for you and with rivers of wine that you could drink of. Just sickening….
    BTW, if Assir is caught alive, I would like to see him in prison shaved from head to toe (including ALL of his body) he will be more appealing in prison….

      The Lebanese soldiers did not die for nothing, they died protecting Hezbollah’s interests.
      I wish I can say they died defending the interests of the country, but such sentence does not exist in the Lebanese vocabulary (while attacking religions and sects is very much accepted as well as detailed torture methods).
      The army got what it deserves, and will be attacked again and again for its double-standards in dealing with what are supposed to be equal citizens under the rule of law. The army has been hitting with an iron fist anything and anybody who has no fist or a small fist, but we see a total lack of iron balls when it comes to applying the law on all parts of the territory and following criminals and terrorists once they reach certain zones.

        I said it before: not because HA is armed and abusing power that everyone also should be doing the same. I do not want to defend HA, but HA never attacked the army, except once when they killed the pilot of the helicopter in the South, and then they apologized and offered to hand-in the killer, which was not a pre-meditated killing to start with, but wrong in any case… However, in the case of Assir or some of the Sunnis, they feel that the army is against them, which I completely disagree with. The army is not with or against any Lebanese, and if the army has not yet faced off HA is to avoid a blood bath. Another thing I would like to note here, is that unfortunately, the Sunnis in Lebanon (in general) ALWAYS are thinking in terms of confession (i.e. Sunni versus non-Sunni). I’ll give you a clear example: The involvement of HA in Syria, which I believe is wrong and we should not as Lebanese be involved in the Syrian mess, is a political issue, because if Assad falls then HA falls, so it is a survival tactic for HA. The sunnis turned it as a Shiaa vs. Sunni thing, which is completely wrong. Do you know that most of the big sunni families and traders and business people in Syria still support Assad and that Assad would not have been able to survive so long without their support (although I am against him and want to see his end for different Lebanese reasons). Now after all what this Assir did and killed the LA soldiers and you are still siding with Assir only because he is sunni and you probably are a sunni. Please stop this blind confessionalism and see things as they are. This man is an outlaw who attacked the army and he should be dealt with. I am sure 95% of the sunnis of Saida will be happy to get rid of him and all the trouble he has been causing the city and its people.

        1. Why wont they hand in suspected killer of hariri? Why isnt the army deployed in dahie like its deployed in qusayr? Who chased the official government out of office? Who blew up head of security wissam elhassan and who is helping them fight a war? Just a few questions you can ponder over.

            Yes all these crimes HA did them, I agree with you 100% and I am waiting for the right moment and the right equation regionally to get rid of HA, but not at the cost of the Lebanese Army my friend. The LA includes men (and women) from all the Lebanese society and knows that it has to walk on eggs internally to keep the social and internal peace and security. You do not fight HA by attacking the Army. You want to fight HA go attack their offices, their leaders, but not the army. Did Assir win anything by killing Lebanese soldiers ? In the contrary he lost support of many and now he is in exile in Syria, where the Syrians will probably kill him. What do the Sunnis gain in attacking the army (which includes many sunnis too) ? The answer is nothing.

          2. When the army and amal both watchover firebombs being thrown from hezbalahs turf and try to sley only the movement of assir and not the hezballah then when is the right time? When the whole area has been exterminated waiting for the army to grow some balls?
            Lebanon has been taken over by iran weather you like it or not.

            what they did in saida is breaking the eggs by siding with Hezbollah and not even daring to visit these appartments full of weapons and spying hardware. Asir attacked Hezbollah in the first days, the army came in and put itself in the middle, only they turned and started harassing asir leaving Hezbollah do what they want…
            The sunnis did not attack the army!!! Asir did! the sunni leadership stood with the army from the get go, but they also asked the army to be fair and empty these appartments… which the army won’t dare do!

          Wrong! Hezbollah attacked the army multiple times, they might not have killed the troops, but they disarmed them and sent them without their vehicles out of dahyieh and other supposedly Lebanese territories!
          Wrong! The army is with some Lebanese against others and it’s not Sunni salafists who are convinced of this exclusively, Christians and Druze know very well that the army wont defend them from Hezbollah, please go back to may 2008, where was the army when hezb+amal invaded most of the country and threw people from the windows?
          Wrong! you say the Sunnis in general are always thinking in terms of confession then at the end you say that 95% of Sunnis of saida are happy to be rid of Assir: which is it?
          Wrong! I am not with assir nor am I a sunni or a confessionalist and I see things very well as they are: this army has been and will always be a shame. Note that they sent mainly Christian soldiers and officers to deal with Asir because the army command knows very well that the sunnis soldiers wont shoot on Asir and shia soldiers will side with Hezbollah and the army will split in 24 hours. That’s the reality!
          Wrong! big sunni families are not with bashar, or at least the majority of them is not, even his sunni ami d’enfance has deserted him, and the sunni VP tried multiple times to run away.
          I don’t like asir as much as I don’t like Hezbollah and want the army to deal with both with the same iron fist but this army flexes its muscles on the weak and sucks its finger when Hezbollah has done a million time worse than what asir did.
