Hezbollah wants Hariri back !

Share:

hariri def 10Hezbollah urged former Prime Minister Saad Hariri to return to Lebanon , al-Joumhouria newspaper reported on Tuesday, adding this comes after the former PM received several calls from Speaker Nabih Berri asking him to come back and form a cabinet.

Hariri’s government was toppled by the the Hezbollah-led March 8 alliance in January 2011. He left the country the following April and never returned for security reasons.

Berri’s calls on Hariri to return was widely reported last week.

In remarks published by As-Safir newspaper Monday July 22, Berri said: “If Hariri wanted to run for the premiership, we would study the matter. ”

He also called on Hariri to return to Lebanon “so that we can discuss with him National Dialogue, efforts to form the Cabinet and everything else.”

Hariri, who heads the Future Movement has not commented on Speaker Nabih Berri’s call to return to Lebanon and nominate himself to the premiership.

However several members of Hariri’s parliamentary bloc dismissed Berri’s call for Hariri to nominate himself as a new prime minister as “a maneuver.”

“We have nominated Tammam Salam as prime minister. Hariri’s nomination now is out of the question,” Beirut MP Ammar Houri told reporters last week .

Houri said Berri’s call on Hariri to run for the premiership reflected the speaker’s problems with Salam over the formation of a new Cabinet.

Similarly Shouf MP Mohammad Hajjar described Berri’s call on Hariri to run for the premiership as “a maneuver,” reiterating his bloc’s support for Salam.

“Our position is clear, which is to support Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam in the Cabinet formation,” Hajjar told Al-Jadeed TV last Tuesday.

“Those who are trying to distract attention from the main problem, which is the Cabinet formation, and those who are trying to put obstacles in the way of the formation, should facilitate the mission of Salam whom we have granted all confidence to form the Cabinet according to the conditions he has proposed,” Hajjar said.

He added that Berri’s call on Hariri to return to Lebanon to head the new government is not on the cards.

Salam, who was appointed prime minister-designate on April 6, has run into trouble forming a new Cabinet as a result of the conditions set by the Hezbollah led March 8 alliance.

Berri , a key ally of the Iranian backed Hezbollah was was quoted as saying last week that ” Salam’s insistence on his proposal for a 24-member Cabinet equally divided by the March 8 and March 14 parties and centrists did not help in the Cabinet formation.

March 8 is insisting on having a veto power in the cabinet. Instead of 8 members it reportedly wants 9 or more.

Ali Hussein a local observer told Ya Libnan on Tuesday: ” Hariri should respond by telling Nasrallah why don’t you come to Jeddah ?

Hussein was referring to Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah who has been hiding for over seven years ; ever since the July 2006 war erupted between Israel and Hezbollah.

Hussein added: Hariri should ask Nasrallah to bring along with him to Saudi his dad’s killers “.

Hussein was referring to the 4 fugitive Hezbollah members who were accused by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon ( STL) of killing Hariri’s father former PM Rafik Hariri who was assassinated on February 14 2005 in downtown Beirut

        That may be true, young fellow. But I really doubt it is ‘jealousy’ that Nagy shows. Perhaps a little hatred … but HOW can ANYONE be ‘practical’ in Lebanon, when anyone trying to be simply practical gets bashed down – thanks to ‘belief’ details … by a ‘party’ that thinks it is ‘of god’ ??

    Harriri will put what used to be March 8 on blast. I honestly think he will form a cabinet and whoever doesnt agree on his strategy will be excluded from it. Who knows what Berri is thinking.

      Salam is sticking to his guns – an equal cabinet. THAT is what is the thorn in the ‘sides’.
      Everyone hates that weird constitution … they must have preferred the fighting.

    The Hezbians want only chaos for Lebanon, why would they ‘want’ law and order? They have ulterior motives with statements like these.

    This got me thinking. Harriri should work something out with the rest of the future movement to where Harriri will come back to Lebanon and nominate himself pm only if HA turns in the suspects indicted by the tribunal for the murder of Rafik Harriri. That will make Berri hush up.

      I was thinking the same … I imagine the ‘exchange’ at the airport … Hariri walks into the Lion’s Den as 4 guys in chains pass him on the ‘loading ramp’ to a plane bound for Geneva … like a Bond Movie … effective theatre. Flight insurance guaranteed. 😉

    Unfortunately with the current climate in the middle east and the obvious influence of the big players maybe they think hariri is the only one that can have the influence on the ground to keep things calm and with the obvious backing of the ksa they may feel he can gain a result. Unfortunately the other leaders mikati and tamam dont have that influence and backing. The way the climate is at the moment we need leaders that can keep things calm on the ground and if you look around they only seem to be hzb,berri,hariri,gagea,gmayell,aoun and jumblatt?

      As the economy and refugee problems grow, keeping things calm might be beyond even those guys. Assad is chuckling mightily …

      “you” are right “you” “need leaders that can keep things calm on the ground” because the same “you” led the country to its breakdown and can’t control the mushrooming violence that “your” actions created, so yes “you” need Hariri back and fast.

            You said “we need leaders that can keep things calm on the ground” and you named Hariri as one of them, and he’s NOT on the ground, so you are calling for his return since you “need” him
            Right?

            Well if you want to be technical now yes i said that but i was referring to the thought behind him coming back…and in my opinion those leaders i mentioned above are the only ones capable of doing that…referring to your above post about the feudal mentality yes you are correct and unfortunately the above mentioned are the feudal parties involved….

    Why do we have to keep the same people over & over & over & over. I am sick and tired of the same frikin names for the past 50 years – Berri, Jumblat, Gmayel, Ga3ga3, Nasrallah, Qabbani, Slam and on and on. Don’t we have enough people graduating with Politics degrees? Jeez – Btw, what are the terms for premiers and all other positions in the government. Cause all I see is the president serving 2 terms and ba bye. As for the rest, they are still there and will never change – well until they die and then their son takes over. If anyone has information or a link on PM terms, it will be nice to share

      Because Lebanon is a majority of feudal clans still living in the middle-ages regardless of the (non-functional) modern institutions and the democracy label.

        AS Seen with Aoun, for sure. Trying to get one brother-in-law into another ‘top’ position. We know how the ‘electricity problem’ got sorted out so well with another ‘family member’ … imagine if ‘the family’ are running the military too. Bad enough as it is …

        Have you asked yourself why do voters choose to vote for them? They did not appoint themselves now did they?
        In the U.S. things are simplified for the voters. Two main parties and no religious affiliations albeit racial profiling still exists. As long as we vote with religion in mind, the voters will always polarize towards the choice that makes them unique.
        They all forget that the uniqueness factor must be the nation which gravitates them towards individuals feeding on their fears.
        When PMs are assigned to write the law of the land, I see a vicious self-propelling cycle with no end in sight.
