Reaction to the Beirut Hezbollah stronghold blast

Share:

beir el -abed blast 070913 -3The blast that rocked the stronghold of the Shiite militant Hezbollah group south of the Lebanese capital, Beirut on Tuesday the first day of Ramadan for the Shiites was widely condemned by the Lebanese and the international community. The blast which was caused by a car bomb set several cars on fire and wounded dozens of people security officials said.

Caretaker Health Minister said 53 people were wounded in the Bir el-Abed blast. But 41 of them were discharged and the rest were being treated for non serious injuries.

US Ambassador to Lebanon Maura Connelly condemned on Tuesday the bombing .

“Connelly strongly condemns today’s bombing in the Bir el-Abed neighborhood of Beirut, which tragically occurred on the eve of the holy month of Ramadan,” a statement issued by the US Embassy in Lebanon said.

“ Connelly extends the United States’ deepest sympathies and concern for those reportedly wounded or killed in today’s attack,” the statement added.

The US envoy also voiced Washington’s “condemnation in the strongest terms of any violence in Lebanon and calls for all parties to exercise calm, constraint, and respect for Lebanon’s security and stability.”

France also strongly condemned the Bir el-Abed blast and called on the Lebanese to maintain national unity and avoid violent reactions.

Here at home, President Michel Suleiman was one of the first leaders to condemn the blast: “It should prompt the Lebanese people to end their differences, return to dialogue, and commit to the Baabda Declaration.” He said.

Former PM Saad Hariri condemned also the explosion : “The incident forces us to consolidate national consensus and distance the country from any foreign conflict.”

PM-designate Tammam Salam also condemned the Bir el-Abed blast: “It is an attempt to create strife in Lebanon”, he said.

Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qabbani , the highest ranking Muslim Sunni authoriity in Lebanon described Bir el-Abed blast as a “criminal act” that aims at destabilizing the country’s security and stability.

MP Bahia Hariri, sister of the slan PM Rafik Hariri commented by saying: ” We should embrace the state, its institutions and its role, which is the only security element for all the Lebanese.”

Speaker Nabih Berri, a close ally of Hezbollah also condemned the blast: ” Bir al-Abed neighborhood’s blast aims at dividing the Lebanese, which requires us all to be aware of the plot.”, He said.

MP Sami Gemayel a key mmeber of the Phalange party told LBCI: The blast is the result of the involvement of the Lebanese in the Syrian crisis.

The March 14 General Secretariat condemned the attack: “Judicial and security authorities should take the necessary measures to reveal the culprits responsible for the blast.” A statement said.

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea condemned the blast:” The security of the nation and its people can only be provided by the strong and capable state”, he stressed.

Several other Lebanese leaders condemned the blast and caled for adhering to the Baabda declaration and not interfereing in the Syrian affairs .

Hezbollah fighters have been helping the the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad in its crackdown against the mostly Sunni rebels seeking to overthrow the regime. The rebels accused Hezbollah of invading Syria and vowed to move the war to Lebanon.

Hundreds of Hezbollah fighers have reportedly been killed in Syria and buried in Lebanon. Ove 100,000 have been killed so far in the Syrian civil war according to activists.

      There is no one Lebanese who supports these cowerdly acts and everyone codemns them, but people are responding to the reasons of these acts and how to prevent them. And one sure way to prevent them is to have the arms with the army and the police and no one whatsoever holds arms in Lebanon other than the government, which will automatically be the strongest force on the ground. Strangely when there is a conflict in an Islamic place/country, the conflict becomes even worse and dramatic in Ramadan. Again this bomb is the direct result of HA involvement in Syria. Yes there are sunnis too who are involved in Syria with the opposition and those if caught by the army in Syria I don’t even want to specualte on their fate. In addition I woul like to believe that the Syrian regime does not usually target innocents in their terrorist acts, they target specific people but in most cases other innocents fall victims of the act, like in the case of Hariri and Wissam el-Hassan. This is definitely the act of the FSA with their collaborators in Lebanon who hate HA (and there are plenty !).

  3. Saad Hariri and his GCC/CIA sponsored goons are up to their tricks again!

          And Hezbollah works for Iran. So your point is..

          1. Hezbollah was made by Iran, of cause they work for Iran.
            why don’t the other two groups claim their allegiance too ?
            christian fascists for France, Sunni’s for the GCC.

            Because not all the Christian fascists work for France and not all the Sunnis work for the GCC. But if what your saying is true, I would rather have a country supported by oil rich Saudis than dirt poor Iran.

          3. “oil rich Saudis”? you mean oil rich Sauds.
            Arabians are as poor and illiterate as the rest of the Arabs.

            i did not say all Sunni’s and Christians but i will say all Sunni and christian politicians.

            Not the Saudi politicians. And I don’t see Gemayel or Geagea or Aoun taking frequent trips to France, but I see Harriri residing in it.

          5. not the saudi politicians what?

            i can agree with you on Gemayel, Geagea and Aoun but when push comes to shove, self preservation takes over.

            The Saudi politicians are wealthy.

            Thats the problem with the Christian sect. There are too many political parties so its hard to remain unified like the Shiites or Sunnis.

      Hezbollah is fighting Sunnis in Syria. Did they expect flowers for Shiite Ramadan?

      1. most of the Syrian Arab Army is Sunni. fighting side by side with Hezbollah. keep your sectarian propaganda to yourself.

        1. The real lebanese Avatar
          The real lebanese

          Also in Lebanon. We saw in Abra the Lebanese Army fighting alongside HA. Wow, now that I think of it, they seem to be in everyones business, huh?

          1. the business of Lebanon and Syria is intertwined. the business of Hezbollah, Iran and Syria is also intertwined.

            the fall of Syria will be the fall of Lebanon, as the takfiri lunatics job for the GCC, is to eliminate minority Islamic sects. Lebanon will be engulfed in a civil war.

            Hezbollah did not intervene in Syria to save Assad. if that was the case they should have done so mid last year when the Syrian government was at its weakest.
            the takfiri’s surrounding Lebanon was to cut supply routes to Hezbollah from Iran. the Mediterranean is watched by “israel”, so only land routes are available… do the math.

            The real lebanese

            Takrifis wont take over Lebanon. Thats the thing with Lebanon.When one group or sect gets to much power, the other two begin to bark and will eventually bite. HA is lucky they’ve had Aoun. But since Berri announced yesterday that the March 8 coalition collapsed, I think we’ll quickly see a change in balance.

          3. politics is who has the better guns and well trained fighters. nothing more, nothing less.

            Takfiri death squads is not a sect, its a CIA proxy… it didn’t matter if you were ‘left wing’ or ‘communist’, the Contras killed you all the same.

          4. The real lebanese Avatar
            The real lebanese

            This isn’t true when a country has 3 or more sects. Or when the well trained fighters are on the minority sects side.

          5. it makes all the difference i’m afraid… this is not 1987, there is no significant threat to Hezbollah among the various sects in Lebanon and 2008 proved that.

            The real lebanese

            True, but the March 8 coalition dissolved. Think about what is now the majority of christians are thinking

          7. they are thinking the same thing they thought during the 1980’s… “israel” and France will save them.

          8. The real lebanese Avatar
            The real lebanese

            Exactly. This was not a well calculated move by Berri and HA since they are losing support from Shiites as well.

          9. you talking yourself in circles… this is the idea of the takfiri proxies.
            Hezbollah had to act. allowing the CIA to cut its supply lines through Syria was the death of Hezbollah but directly intervening in Syria “damages” or at least creates the excuses to “damage” the image of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

            you are not playing the game smart enough… either way, Lebanon is not going to survive.

          10. The real lebanese Avatar
            The real lebanese

            Hezbollah’s image IS damaged. And Lebanon may have another war but if HA didn’t intervene, it would still have a good reputation even though it would have to become more of a political movement than a militia.

            Geezzz Real … they already have 2 ‘political’ sides, and a third which doesn’t want them kissing the Supreme’s ass – and we know what they did to those guys.
            ‘Damaged’ is not the word. They totally F’d up.

          12. you are not looking at the bigger picture. what happens in Lebanon depends on whats happening on the outside.

            the image of Hezbollah may be “damaged” in some quarters but its supporters (the only thing that matters) remains.
            Hezbollah did what it had to do to survive. nothing surprising about that…

          13. The real lebanese Avatar
            The real lebanese

            Its not going to survive (at least as a militia). You need to look at the bigger picture. Assad will be taken down for chemical weapons (as the USA and western powers claim). Hezbollah will lose its supply line. The Sunnis are already growing impatient with the prescence of Hezbollahs arms. March 14 is the only reputable coalition CURRENTLY so they will likely win elections. And Im sure you know Hezbollahs arms will be one of the first thing it addresses. If Hezbollah wants to fight, thats fine. All the surrounding arab countries will help the army since it is not Israel fighting Hezbollah. It will eventually have to surrender without its supply route. Its like a snake. If you cut the head off, it can still bite for a little bit, butit will eventually die.

          14. people never seem to get tiered of saying it and 30 years later… Hezbollah will survive and so will Syria as a ‘resistance’ state.

            this idea envisaged by the CIA and the GCC to create a pro-“israel” neighborhood in the near east will not work. there will always be resistance to “israel” as long as it exists.

            let me tell you a secret: NATO will not invade Syria. the window for invasion died with the first Russian/Chinese veto.
            the “chemical weapons” talk is blown every time NATO tries to use it. no one believes the WMD stories anymore, that died with Iraq.
            Hezbollah’s supply lines are very much reopened after Qusayr. the entire Lebanon/Syria border is free of the CIA with Talkalakh’s “peace”/surrender.
            there is no real information on Hezbollah even still being in Syria for the fight for Homs.
            Homs itself will fall soon and the battle will move on to Aleppo. the desperation of the “FSA” is obvious with its blockade of western Aleppo.

            it does not matter how much money Saudi Arabia pays, they produce nothing. the weapons still have to come from Croatia via Turkey.

            Hezbollah and its weapons are going nowhere and neither is President Assad of Syria.

          16. too little support don’t you think?

          17. The real lebanese Avatar
            The real lebanese

            Even Russia says WMDs are used. Thats a proven fact now, its just that no one knows who did it. And btw, Syria is not a resistance state. Its a pussy state who supports HA and lets Lebanon be the center for drama. And you can keep denying it, but I guarantee in this lifetime HA will lose the legitimacy for its weapons. The way they react to it will determine if they fall.

          18. you’re made 3 points drawn directly from “media” propaganda…

            first: Russia has confirmed chemical weapons use in Syria, even the UN did that and both have confirmed that NATO’s “FSA” has deployed them against civilians, NOT the Syrian government.
            as NATO’s proxies loose more ground, they become more desperate and you will see more chemical weapons use soon. specifically on Aleppo.
            keep watching.

            second: the anti-Syria supporters have for the past two years been trying to fool people into believing that Syria, Hezbollah and Iran are actually allies of “israel” and never did anything to try and liberate Palestine!
            answer this question… please explain why the supporters of NATO’s death squads (the GCC) are the one’s with NATO and Mossad bases and not Iran or Syria?
            please explain why all the missiles and rockets that are fired towards “israel”, that kills “israel’s”, that captures zionist soldiers are ALL made, and or transported via Iran and Syria.
            why has Hamas which enjoyed the support and protection of the Syrian state, after being lured out of Syria with bread crumbs is now being hunted and killed by the Egyptian army, which i might add is supported by the GCC?

            has “peace” not come to Palestine because “israel” refuses it or because Hamas (when in Syria) prevented Abbas and the PA from selling it to zionists?
            what is happening now?

            the GCC are allies of NATO and zionists. these are the people sponsoring, arming, training and transporting takfiri lunatics to Syria and Lebanon.
            these are the same people who killed Gaddafi! you know, the same guy who paid Iran and Syria to manufacture missiles for Gaza. no more money from Libya for Palestinian resistance, that’s all gone to takfiris killing Syrians!

            the CIA’s ‘Al-Qaida’ has killed tens of thousands of Arabs and not one “jew”.
            Al-Qaida shows up at just the right time and place for NATO invasion… look at Mali and Niger.
            Taureg freedom in northern Mali was overthrown by Al-Qaida, which provided the excuse for NATO to invade and occupy both Mali and Niger. NATO now guards the uranium mines in both countries… not to mention the oil platforms in Libya.

            Third: the attempt to disarm Hezbollah is tied with ‘new middle east’ of disarming the Arab. did you not know that Arabs are no allowed to have serious weapons?
            2006. 2008. 2013. fail. fail. fail. let me repeat so that you can understand, because you believe so wholeheartedly in GCC proxies…
            Syria is winning the war against the CIA/GCC takfiri lunatics.
            NATO is not coming to save them because Russia will not allow it. (Russia knows that a CIA/GCC takfiri victory in Syria, only means an invasion of the same forces in the Caucasus)
            the in-fighting between Qatar and Saudi Arabia has already begun with the collapse of Egypt.
            a war against Iran by NATO can not, i repeat CAN NOT take place as long as Syria and Hezbollah is in place. Syria and Hezbollah is not going to fall and Hezbollah’s weapons supplies are totally safe.

          19. The real lebanese Avatar
            The real lebanese

            First off, let me begin by saying your first point is complete bull. I read earlier THIS week that the UN official whos responsible for helping a compromise occur in Syria (I forgot his name) sent a letter to the regime asking for more space to investigate. This is the third time he’s sent it. Russias confirm is trying to offset the USAs confirm. What is the regime trying to hide? I some what agree with you on the second point. Israel is not friends of those three countries. But neither is the GCC and the CIA is definitley not friends with al Qaeda. Your starting to sound like wargame, the person you criticize. So stop being a hypocrite. Third, HA will have to turn in its weapons eventually. The Lebanese (not the Iranian pigs who give no sh¡ts for Lebanon) are getting fed up. And btw, the Caucasus are already technically independent. The people there dont allow Russia’s troops in. And back on HAs arms, you will see in the next couple of years. Cedar Revolution #2 is coming.

          20. Your “facts” are out of date. The Russian foreign minister Lavrov CONFIRMED, the use of chemical weapons by the “FSA” and handed its findings over to the UN.
            As for the UN “investigators” themselves, Syria is the one that asked for an investigation in the first place. The UN obliged by setting up a team comprised of NATO states who fund, arm and train the takfiri lunatics… Syria would allow a team in, only if China and Russia were part of it too.
            The last UN “(NATO) weapons inspectors” team that was in an Arab country, Hans Blix “could not confirm if all the chemical weapons were accounted for”! Green light for NATO invasion of Iraq. We all know the story, why are you repeating the same nonsense.

            Are you being serious by claiming that Al-Qaida, the CIA and the GCC are not one and the same thing? When were you born! When the Syrian invasion begun?
            Al-Qaida was created by the CIA and GCC! Al-Qaida was trained and armed by the CIA with GCC money! Al-Qaida today operates and infects countries prime for NATO invasion. Look at the list… Afghanistan, the initial invasion was claimed to “go after” Al-Qaida, only ended being an occupation and moving Al-Qaida to; Pakistan since 2001. Iraq 2003. (they arrived with NATO and not as Bush claimed, working with Saddam.) Libya 2011. Syria since 2011. Mali/Niger 2012.

            Unfortunately most people like yourself only find out the truth 20 years later when NATO releases a “documentary” telling you how they coordinated the overthrow of Mosaddegh in 1953, or trained, armed and transported 1500 Cuban “rebels” to invade and overthrow Castro in 1961. Hundreds of other “coups” and “rebellions” costing tens of millions of lives! Why do you think Syria is any different?

            Ceder revolution number 2? Oh I do not doubt it!
            NATO’s attempt at regime changed has failed in Syria. Homs is almost done. Aleppo and the Turkish border is next. Hezbollah’s weapons supplies are safe and continues, and its fighters are back in Lebanon assisting the Lebanese army against the CIA’s Al-Qaida, Al-Nusra and FSA.
            The first “Ceder revolution” which was designed to remove the Syrian army from Lebanon and “expose” Hezbollah, opening the window for an “Israeli” invasion in 2006 was a total failure!
            The second “revolution” was creating the argument of “legitimacy” of Hezbollah’s arsenal also ended in total failure in 2008.
            The third attempt at a Lebanese “revolution” is currently underway and is already faltering with Hezbollah scoring another victory in Syria in 2013. The fifth attempt is coming, I agree with you but the attempt to create a civil war in Lebanon is already failing with land routes cut via Syria and the Lebanese army and Hezbollah coordinating the fight inside Lebanon.

            Your wrong on the first part so Im not going to bother reading the rest. The US actually called for an investigation due to reports from the FSA. This was way before the regime started blaming the rebels. The rest of your info is probably wack too.

            how can i be wrong on the “first part” when Lavrov gave a gave a press conference last week detailing the Russian findings? don’t be shy, have a look.

            of cause the “FSA” claimed the Syrian government used chemical weapons, they have been doing that since the conflict started. no evidence of cause, just NATO “media” noises.

            Don’t you mean Qatar declares war on Saudi Arabia?
            If its not tall buildings, the two houses fight over countries.
            Saudi Arabia knocks out Qatar’s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and now Qatar’s “FSA” goes to war with Saudi Arabia’s “Al-Nusra” in Syria… civil war within a “civil war”… Arabs are really dumb.

            Anti, have you even ever been to Lebanon. You dont seem to know much about it. Did you find what I asked you to find. Lebanese are bright and intelligent, able to stay on task. Are you sure you dont have any persian in you?

          39. lol!
            now you just being funny… who said anything about extension? does Qatar not fund the Muslim Brotherhood? does Saudi Arabia not fund Egypt’s military? or perhaps you going to say the 8 billion dollars they gave them for overthrowing Morsi was also just fiction?!?

            Al-Nusra is funded by Saudi Arabia, so is “Islamic Iraq”, the Sauds boast about it all the time. i suggest you monitor their “news” to find out, seeing that you don’t know.

            Just because they fund it doesnt mean they are it. Is the Lebanese army american? Is the australian army british? is the Malian army French? Just because HA and Iran has this twisted relationship doesnt mean everyone else does

            This is true, Real … and they will tout their differences and joke about ‘those other guys and girls’ … but they are also allies and will help each other, as they are allowed to, under their political systems. And you can be sure the politicians hear from the individual commanders … although ‘advice’ from a warrior is not always the best to have when you’re trying some diplomacy.
            NONE of those would have been happy to lose a favourite commander by such blatant assassination – although it happened to a UN one at a village pow-wow in Afganistan too. That kind of thing unsettles the men, and makes them edgy.
            Having no political ‘masters’ so far (ridiculous circumstance – thanks Brotherhoods) there is no reason the FSA should NOT declare against the idiots who did it – because they ARE a band of brothers after all – for Syrians.

            One question. In Lebanon, how many different ones have been voted in and tried, based on their knowledge of electricity, or water controls, and how much is needed in taxes to cover it ??

      Harriri is actually accusing Israel (which I doubt). Check it out for the daily star for Lebanon!

      1. Hariri says what he is told to say… nothing more.

          I highly doubt it. When the sunnis commit a terrorist act, they are proud to claim it. And don’t you find it suspicious that reporters weren’t allowed near the site? Something is fishy about this

          1. there is always something “fishy” when it comes to Lebanon… too many foreign agents.

          2. not at all… your one liners are amusing.

      2. I agree with you 100% but the reality is that the 3 opposing forces in Lebanon are the only forces in Lebanon.
        christian fascists, supported by France (and “israel).
        Shia supported by Iran and Syria.
        Sunni’s supported by the GCC.

        unless the sponsors works things out, war will always be the option.

          The Christian parties in Lebanon are not fascist
          They support democracy because it is illogical to be fascist when the whole of them makes about 35% of the population.
          Israel supported them only for a brief period of time for a common enemy, namely the PLO. Then the honeymoon was over.
          France is a joke. Besides why do they need support? They, since, came down from their lunacy and understood FAST that Lebanon belongs to ALL the Lebanese.

    This bombing is a work of Hezbushaitan so it can sell its illegal aggression in Syria. They dont want to allow any one near the damaged area ,because they have something to hide. Shredding any evidence of the Hezbushaitans involvement.

        Does you mother work for Hezbushaitan? She shouldn’t have visited in that area. Any body can be a suspect specially those who were in the vicinity plus minus 30 minutes before and after!!!!The small bomb blasted in a parking lot where people park their cars. I would suspect the sunni rebel if the bomb would blast in the arms depot of Hezbushaitan. Hezbushaitan need such sensation at this time as you saw the Shias have started to challange Hezbushaitan not to send their sons in Syria. This little bomb will change that situation. I hope those cars has insurance which covers the terrorist bomb attack. Anyway dont be so over reacted as there are many aerial bombing video by Assad every day. Those are much bigger. I am doing my investigation in my style. Take it easy

            No I think Al-Qaeda does that. Al-Qaeda is a terrorist group sponsored by the Iranian regime. I have posted the investigation report by the US intelligence on this Iran Al-Qaeda link.

            I always thought that Al-Qaeda is a Sunni/salafi extremist organization which is against Iran and the Shiaa in general. I think the Lebanese love to involve in their daily security and political problems INTE3RNATIONAL POLITICS. We are a pretty arrogant people who thinks ” Nehna Rabba”. So what is happening in Lebanon now is a “planned plot” to transform Lebanon to another Baghdad, and have Al-Qaeda plot with Iran, add to their plot an Israeli plan backed by the US and implicitly by Russia, add to that Saudi and QatarI money, etc…. What a complicated diabolic minds those Lebanese have. One advise keep it SIMPLE. WALK AND ACT STRAIGHT ! STOP INVENTING ALL SORTS OF PLOTS TO BLAME OTHERS FOR YOUR ACTS. Btw, I replied to you wargame, but my message is to the all Lebanese in general, and I am one of them.
            What happened in the dahieh is the act of someone who wants to hurt HA and its supporters, nothing more than that, and we know how many ennemies HA has !

    Whilst they throw a tantrum at who bombed this beautiful district of Beirut….can we also find out who killed the politicians who stood for a free Lebanon. All arms including guns should not be placed in anyone else’s hand other than the army. The army is the only resistance that can protect Lebanon. HA stop calling yourself the resistance…you are no longer that!
