Raad: No cabinet will see the light without Hezbollah

Share:

raad hezbollah mpThe head of Hezbollah’s parliamentary bloc MP Mohammad Raad  reiterated that the new Cabinet would not be formed without the participation of Hezbollah.

“The Cabinet will not see the light if we are not partners in it. This is not a challenge but everyone admits we are a major component of the Lebanese people and we will take part in the next government with our allies and friends,”  National News Agency quoted MP Mohammad Raad as saying during an Iftar in the Nabatieh town of  Jbaa on   Saturday.

Raad  added that any Cabinet formed without Hezbollah would be “unconstitutional.”

The March 14 coalition argues that  Hezbollah’s involvement in the Syrian conflict  and its listing as a terrorist organization by the European Community  precludes allowing the party to take part in the upcoming government.

Lebanon PM  Designate Tammam Salam has been trying to form a government   ever since the cabinet  of caretaker Prime Minister Najib Mikati collapsed last March   but the Hezbollah led March 8 alliance  is insisting on having veto power in the new cabinet . The PM-designate wants a non political cabinet  that can get down to business , for this reason  his latest proposal is based on giving  an equal  share  of 8 cabinet seats in  a 24 seat cabinet to each of the  3 opposing political blocks – March 14 ,  March 8 and  the centrists. But   March 8  is insisting on having nine seats  and Salam  is saying no way.

Intimidation

Raad said  the recent decision of the  European Union  to list his party’s “military wing” as a terrorist group aimed at intimidation.

“The decision of the European Union is  a terrorist message and not a political one, they want to terrorize our people and instill fear in their hearts,” Raad said .

“The decision is not only an insult to the resistance and its people … it reflects the despair of the Europeans over all their attempts to put down the resistance and tame it,” he added.

A Huge liability for Lebanon

Hezbollah, which was credited with liberating Lebanese territories from Israel in 2000 was a very popular organization in Lebanon and throughout the Arab world. But according to analysts ever since its 2006 war with Israel, Hezbollah has become a huge liability for Lebanon. In 2006 Hezbollah’s arms were used to try and bring down the government of former PM Fouad Siniora. In 2008 Hezbollah pointed its guns against the Lebanese people when it occupied more than half of Beirut and tried but failed with a great loss of lives to occupy Mt Lebanon . In 2011 it brought down the government of former PM Saad Hariri and reportedly used its arms to force progressive socialist party leader MP Walid Jumblatt and his parliamentary bloc to vote for their candidate Nagib Mikati as the new premier . On March 22 the government of PM Mikati collapsed after Hezbollah refused to extend the term of the Internal Security Forces chief. Hezbollah’s current support for the Syrian regime in its brutal crackdown against the pro democracy uprising and its recent involvement in terror operations in Bulgaria and Cyprus that led to its listing by the EU as a terrorist organization  are additional concerns for the Lebanese people, analysts say.

    Dream on you shiite bastard, the truth is out already of what Hezbollha is all about, there will be a cabinet without your shiite favorite shaytan Hezbollah party. your favorite party has lost all legitimacy as resistance party and has become a sectarian militia fighting for murderous Assd regime , intimidating people and use terror tactics against any one who dare to oppose Hezbollha party domination even if they opposing people are shiite , damn you and your shaytan boss Mr. Nasrallah , keep pretend to be blind but the truth will ever be shine about the real intent of that shaytan party,and if its by popular vote No member represent Hezbollah or shytan party will ever be part of anything in Lebanon’s political like wether in givernemnt or parlielment or anywhere

        I cannot believe what I am reading here. Are you telling us that you are happy and proud that Hezbollah is the Lebanese government ? What kind of a Lebanese are you ?

          Oh DEAR … Hate to ask, Mr. Mod. …. but is that a bit of personal ‘non-neutrality’ from a Moderator in a ‘discussion forum’? Tsk, tsk. Isn’t a moderator just supposed to make sure ‘the rules’ are followed fairly well – because in that narrow sense, Anti was better than Jimmy on the wording.
          We know Anti is a little strange at times, and ALSO confrontational (just like Nastyrallah&crew) in the way he writes, but he has a point. I don’t see any crowing ‘happiness’ in his comment – which one of us is happy that the whole country can’t function for ALL it’s people – and hasn’t been able to for years, for basically only one reason – the guns of an Ideologue in Iran. ??
          I would not object to your comment as ‘one of of us’, but I don’t believe you should use the ‘MOD’ tag to make comments beyond moderating the forum.
          With neutrality.

            Yes and we thanked them back then. But it was also the same chickens who allowed Syria to occupy and the same chickens who are helping the regime that killed civilians.

            Prophett talked about that too. I hate to see it. I think it’s one of the best ‘discussion’ sites I’ve ever seen, actually … all in all. Even if we get worked up some times with the stupidity we see going on …. try to be ‘cool’. 😉
            Just stay inside the ‘rules’. hehehe 😉

          3. Greetings Anti,
            all media outlets can be biased and often are, this is NOT what is destroying Lebanon !
            the inability of Lebanese like you and others to maintain neutrality and commitment to all Lebanese first and foremost is the core of the problem.
            some generalize that all sunnis are the problem and some generalize that shia are the problem , by their comments and prayers and dream is always about total destruction of one sect or another which keeps the majority form considering how much we all have in common and how much we have to work with instead of constantly wishing ill will towards one another!

            You are clearly biased towards assad, libnan1 is biased towards aoun some are biased towards geagea , pictures of Khomeini all Beirut! point to serious allegiances that make fellow Lebanese citizens secondary to commitments made to iran! All these things are a wall of doom and hopelessness for any normalcy for you as a Lebanese or future offspring to come . all this hate and racism is not worth it ! the results speak for themselves.

    So Iran is a major part of the Lebanese people! Well, I learn something new every day.

      Look at Dahia and the South. The Iranian flags and the kukoo khameini pictures all over. I mean Nassrallah said it long time ago we are part of Iran. Iran uses the Shiites to attack the west and the heart of Israel every time it wants to get its points across. Hezbollah wants power and domination of Lebanon. they’re thirsty for power and control just like the Mugabee..they’ve enjoyed it for a long time. Unfortunately when you abuse it like they have been. Its going to get attention and screaming and kicking and lately some roadsides bombings. eventually you will see a huge explosion in Dahia where hundreds of innocent people will die. all because of Iran.. every time we try to steer away from iran. They accuse us of Wahabis and cannibalism and accusations full of crap. every time they kill some M14 politicians they accuse Israel and always hides the evidence and kill the owners of these evidence also..i mean these blatant violations of Syria and Iran who have massacred the Lebanese people and the arab world all because of their hunger for Power..

    In Lebanon it’s all about the fact you don’t want ‘equality’ Raad. Did you learn that word yet?
    Bad enough you expect even that, when you only ‘won’ 2 seats out of 30 in an election, let alone ‘veto power’. Salam needs to stick to what he proposed at least.
