“Hezbollah terrorists combating terrorists” in Syria, says US official


Thomas A. ShannonU.S. Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Thomas A. Shannon Jr. said during an interview with the  local Lebanese newspaper Al-Joumhouria published Saturday that Hezbollah’s involvement in the conflict in neighboring Syria has had grave repercussions on the group,

“They [Hezbollah gunmen ] are terrorists combating terrorists,”

He said that the party supports “the Syrian regime which is acting barbarically towards its own people and is primarily responsible for the [death] of thousands  of victims and the displacement of millions.”

Shannon, who concluded a two-day visit to Lebanon Friday, said that the U.S. administration would not change its stance towards Hezbollah, nor would the sanctions imposed on the Lebanese group be reversed.

Washington considers Hezbollah a terror group, and, unlike Europe, does not distinguish between its political and military wings.

Shannon, however, hailed the Lebanese and Lebanon’s banking sector and its Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh “for doing an excellent job… we are completely satisfied with what they have accomplished.”

The U.S. official also praised the role played by the Lebanese Army in confronting ISIS along the country’s northeastern border with Syria. “The Lebanese military is a distinguished ally and senior U.S. partner.”

“We have been cooperative with the Army’s needs and we will continue on this path.”

Addressing  the power vaccuum at the helm of Lebanon’s top Christian post, Shannon said that the presidential stalemate had a significant impact on the Cabinet, calling for a swift end to the political crisis.

“We believe it’s time for the Lebanese to elect a president, but it’s a purely domestic matter that the Lebanese and their institutions [have to deal with] as neither we [the U.S.], nor any foreign side, can do anything about.”

He reiterated support to the Lebanese people and state, urging all factions to work on coming to a decisive solution and surpassing differences to elect a head of state.

The Lebanese parliament failed again last month  and for the 43rd time in a row to elect a president to replace Michel Suleiman whose term ended on May 25 , 2014.

As in the past sessions the parliament was unable to reach a quorum because the Iranian-backed Hezbollah militant group and its ally MP Michel Aoun’s Change and Reform bloc MPs boycotted the session, because they could not reportedly guarantee Aoun’s election as a president.

Amal Movement leader, Speaker Nabih Berri a key ally of Hezbollah postponed the election to September 7, 2016.

    1. There is not a Lebanon anymore, the name is being changed to Little Tehran in honor of where the paycheque comes from.

    2. You mean Wouldn’t be the new Iran.

      1. thank you iran for the bullets and rockets

        1. Yes and the next war for Lebanon.
          Lebanon wars have been because of the PLO and HA and Syria.
          Read the history the Lebanese army has never gone to war with Isreal.
          But lots of people are brainwashed.

          1. if there was no Hezbollah and the lebaneese army as usual has no weapons .. what would you want .. Israel invade from south and takfiris from north . im not going to say ur brainwashed you don’t know what is to happen

    All key American Government’s appointees are Jewish, that’s fine, but they work for Zionist State of Israel or
    else they would not be appointed.
    So Lebanon, consider this Netanyahu’s giving you instructions (diplomatically).

    1. What is the point of your argument and what do you expect to happen?
      Does Canada also have this Zionist problem you mention? From what I have heard, the Jewish community in North America, and other countries, is a much older population base that tends to mix easy with other cultures, much more than some other cultures that have been thrusted upon the Westernized countries in recent memory. What happens in that war-zone they call the middle-east is anybodies guess, with everyone trying to kill each other.

        No problem for me .. until they wanted no Christmas trees in malls or people saying ‘Merry Christmas’ in at least the stores. Then they become a problem for a culture.

        1. Tradition should remain tradition, unless it is extremely offensive or breaks the law. All I can say is fvck them if they want to remove my tree. This is why religions are all bad. I don’t get mixed up with religion to enjoy the holiday giving, it is more about family.

            After Harper, the Christian Evangelical Western cowboy, they polarised Canada like in US.

          2. it is not hard to polarize western countries against muslims due to the negative influence muslim immigrants produce. Just the sad facts. I would sooner see a Jewish family come to my neighborhood than soom backwards hijab wearing beardy muslim family with ten kids sucking the welfare system and producing little more than insecurity and intolerance of local customs.

    Israeli right-wing think tank.
    “Don’t destroy ISIS; it’s a “useful tool” against Iran, Hezbollah, Syria
    Head of a right-wing think tank says the existence of ISIS serves a “strategic purpose” in the West’s interests”

    West’s interests? Always rivers of blood.. not in Lebanon’s interests having International Christian head shoppers on it’s borders.

    “According to a think tank that does contract work for NATO and the Israeli government, the West should not destroy ISIS, the fascist Islamist extremist group that is committing genocide and ethnically cleansing minority groups in Syria and Iraq.

    Why? The so-called Islamic State “can be a useful tool in undermining” Iran, Hezbollah, Syria and Russia, argues the think tank’s director.”

            Imagine what a world run by Dumbyad would look like… Probably a lot like in one of those “Alien” movies. 🙂

          3. Imagine what a world run by Y Khara and his ilk would look like… Exactly like ‘The Island of Doctor Moreau’.

          4. Responding to “you are a piece of crap” with “no, you are a piece of crap”. Wow, that’s one dazzling kindergarten-level riposte. I expect better from you, son. Or to be more precise, even from you.

    Mr. Shannon knows they are trying to fix it with Yinon Plan of Greater Israel Project underway.
    Why do you think ISIS exists? It’s not an accident.

    1. Where is Oded now?? Is this Israeli policy or the rant of a journalist?

      1. It’s the rant of Dumbyad. Or to be more precise, the rant of some moron she copypasted from. The original article – which Dumbyad never saw – is quite insightful, by the way.

    2. “Yinon suggests that the Arab States should be destroyed from within by exploiting their internal religious and ethnic tension”

      Holy fvck, this is right out of Iran’s mullah play-book. It is exactly the methods they uses and are currently up to their nuts in it. Pick any country in the middle-east or anywhere, and you can find Iran’s fingerprints stirring the shiite (and arming sectarian militias).

      “freudian slip” perhaps?

      1. Hind Abyad Avatar

        Exactly..it was not “perhaps”.

    3. The retard is back with the “Yinon Plan”(tm). I know she (it) doesn’t have a job, but even someone like her must have something better to do than obsessively copypasting the same crap over and over again?

        The power of lies, deceptions and disinformation as Americans pay the price of collective stupidity.

        “You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel…”
