SNC official :“We won't rest until Hezbollah is eliminated”

Share:

To match Interview SYRIA-OPPOSITION/Syrian National Coalition member responsible for security and defense Kamal al-Labwani warned Tuesday that the rebels will fight Hezbollah in Lebanon after the group provided military support for the Syrian regime.

“ Hezbollah has fought against us on our land, we will fight it on its own turf, but not for the time being,” Labwani was quoted as saying by NOW during a press meeting Amman, Jordan

Labwani added that “after our victory in Syria, we will work to get rid of Hezbollah’s military wing with the cooperation of the Lebanese people and abolish the party , which we consider as our enemy.”

Labwani vowed : “We will not rest until Hezbollah is eliminated.”

The SNC official also said that the rebels will “militarily punish” Hezbollah which will “pay for the crimes it has committed against the Syrian people.”

The opposition figure described the Lebanese government as being a “Hezbollah’s government,” and denied any contact with it.

However, he noted that the Syrian opposition is in contact with “people who publically pretend to be pro-Hezbollah when [in fact] they are not,” as well as with a “mediator with Lebanese Speaker Nabih Berri… and pro-Syrian revolution parties.”

The SNC official also slammed the Lebanese state for its handling of the Syrian refugee issue.

“The behavior of the Lebanese state towards Syrian refugees is very bad on both the humanitarian and political levels. The state is against their presence.”

However, Labwani praised the Lebanese people who “continue to help the refugees.”

Labwani revealed also that the SNC is considering restructuring its military force.

“The coalition is studying forming a national army made up mainly of dissident officers who are estimated to number around 7000… They might be trained in Jordan or Turkey to conduct operations against the regime army.”

“However, we have not yet received a positive answer in this regard,” he added.

When asked about the opposition’s vision for the future of Syria in the event that they succeed in ousting Assad, Labwani stressed that they wanted to establish a civil state.

“We do not want a religious or a national state… a civil state is the answer and any other [type] of state would [lead to] division.”

More than 100,000 people have been killed so far in the Syrian unrest, which began with peaceful anti-regime protests in March 2011, before devolving into a full-fledged war.

  3. The root of the problem is the Islamic Republic of Iran, the biggest sponsors of terrorism since 1979™

    1. Slow down cowboy….who sponsors,alqaeda? Taliban? Nusra?ASG,GAMA’A ISLAMIYA,HUM,PKK,JEM,LET,AAA,AQIM,JI,LJ,AAI,LIFG,AQI.AIJU,AL-SHABBAD,AQAP,HUJI,JUNDALAH,BOKO HARUM,AOI,JAT,AOI,AAB,AAD? Or maybe for you it is because had that not happened palestine would have been relocated to southern lebanon? I tell you what? How about use take back all the palestinians in Lebanon and relocate them in your country and then that way everyone can fix their own backyard and we wouldnt have the excuses we keep hearing? I would be even be happy with a peace treaty after that…their would be no more excuses for hzb or israel and everyone can live in peace?

        After they multiplied for 4 generations, they can’t fit enough cement boxes on Israeli land for them to live it. ;-)) And at least 2 generations think they are Lebanese … :-))))

      2. The Al Qaeda branch in Iraq was indeed sponsored by Iran to fight the Americans, don’t believe the regime lies about them being under “house arrest” in Iran.

        You see the problem with taking the “palestinians” in Lebanon is that almost all of them have never step foot in Israel. A refugee is someone who escaped conflict, it is not the great grandchildren of people who might have walked on Palestine (pre-1948) for 2 years and were recent immigrants.

        During the British Mandate more Arabs immigrated to Palestine than Jews did. Most of them are not indigenous to the land, why the hell should we take their grandchildren?

        There are 1,500,000 Arabs in Israel and they all have Israeli citizenship with equal rights. Isn’t it time you did the same thing to the “palestinians” in your country? (though I’m not denying they destroyed your country, civil war and sectarian hatred in Lebanon all came from the Palestinians).

            NO Cookie … it’s not ‘cool’ … value the younger years and do as much as possible in them while studying life – without damaging yourself too much, of course. Don’t worry so much about those pieces of paper from a ‘school’.
            Learning IS a lifetime experience … and I know more humans under the ground now than above … there is NEVER enough time.
            Which is why the ‘old heads’ send the young ones to be blown off. We know. 😉

            As another did in here, you will dump on my ‘academics’, no doubt. 🙂
            But I liked reading and writing from grade-school years. How did I survive???
            :-O !!!
            I learned (apprenticed) in a trade after ‘high school’. Went to WORK. Which allowed me to do a lot of other things. The trade lasted as long as teck-stuff allowed it to … and I survived by ‘updating’ as long as possible in it. Until it died. Although, by the time that happened, I could ‘retire’ … which one should never really do, of course. 😉 There are other ‘things’ … But that was ‘the main’.
            ‘They’ stuffed me into a computer – and I guess I helped them do it. (Rather enjoyed the damn thing – even as I liked the trade. ;-)) They will never stuff a plumber or an electrician into a computer – although I’m sure they will try. :-)) ‘The world’ of Big Business works to eliminate the humans from it – after all, we want ‘pay’, right? And some of us think ‘health-care’ is a good thing.
            Not to dump on the ‘academics’ of course …. but …
            Some day, the phones will fail, and electrical power will go out. If you can’t think of what to do then, you will be in the same shit as in Lebanon – will you survive with ‘philosophy’?? Can you do anything with your hands … comptently? (I mean, other than taking a gun apart to oil it, of course.) Planting a garden is a heavy task and requires seeds and a season – and clean water. Even building an ugly cement box is a trick … and ground-shaking can be detrimental to it too. And some things we need to know only come with experience. Some things we need to know only come by working together with people, with the hands. The ‘philosophy’ of teaching has been skewed greatly by ‘academia’ – which has forgotten the roots of some of the greatest human philosophers. Not to mention ‘certain thinking carpenters’ … hehehe … like the Reasonableman in here who wants my real wood. :-)))

          Stop making up stories…
          How is it an equal right let’s say for a Christian under a Jewish inspired flag? They do call it the star of David? Don’t they? Aspiring for freedom starts with freedom to raise one’s flag and the blue star is not it.

          1. Again, there’s nothing wrong with a Jewish majority in a Jewish state. Nationalism in the name of the majority and equal rights are not the same issue. Everyone is equal legally and socially.
            By the way, most Christian Arabs here are pro-Israel and Ive seen many join the IDF. Back in high school around 1/3 of my class were Druze Arabs. They were more pro-Israel than Jews themselves.
            Here’s something recent in the news:

            Bishara Shlayan, an Israeli Christian Arab from Nazareth who is creating a new Arab political party, says many citizens, including Jews, are contacting him to express their support, and some of them want to donate.

            However, many Arabs who back him, including Muslims, fear to go public with their support, he said.

            The party supports Israel as a Jewish state and national or army service for Arabs. According to Shlayan, Arabs need to “do something for the state,” and “there need to be changes.”

            His party, he stressed, is not just geared toward Christian Arabs, but is open to all Israelis. He explained that its name had been changed from Bnei Brit Hahadasha (Allies of the New Covenant) to just Bnei Brit (Allies) in order to get more Jewish support. Talk of a new covenant disturbed some Jewish supporters, as the name in Hebrew also means the New Testament.

            The waving of Palestinian or other Arab state flags worries him.

            “I want people to raise the Israeli flag,” he said, adding that his first project would be to change the educational curriculum in the Arab sector so that children were taught “to be proud to raise the Israeli flag.”

          2. Hannibal Avatar

            That is ONE disillusioned guy…

          3. Nothing surprising, there are even IDF commanders who are Arab.

            In the 1948 war both Druze in the North and Sunnis in the South sided and fought with Israel.

            I wouldn’t say “pro-Israeli” if they aren’t from Israel. But sometimes Christians in the ME do tend to support Israel, especially at times when there is a fear from Muslims.

          5. I only meant Arab Christians in Israel, you’re right support from Christian Arabs elsewhere is … questionable . I know Syrian Christians hate us lol .

    Labwani’s a joke. No political acumen, zero credibility, talks like a psychopath, and we even have to question if he pretended he had cancer when he was in prison: for Amnesty-type effect. About as infantile as his so-called ‘paintings’. Saw him once on Al-Jazeera – and that’s enough. Only thing he makes sense with is his anti-Hezbollah views. But then even mental defectives have moments of clarity.
