U.S. pressure on Hezbollah, Iran is working, Pompeo says in Beirut;

Lebanese politicians who met Pompeo, including President Michel Aoun, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil — all political allies of Hezbollah — said they had told him the group was part and parcel of Lebanese politics.

“Our pressure on Iran is simple. It’s aimed at cutting off the funding for terrorists and it’s working,” Pompeo said. “We believe that our work is already constraining Hezbollah’s activities.”

Aoun tells Pompeo Hezbollah has popular support

Lebanese President Michel Aoun who is aligned with the Iranian-backed Hezbollah militant group told  visiting U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday that the  movement was a Lebanese party with popular support, the Lebanese presidency said.

“Preserving national unity and civil peace is a priority for us,” Aoun told Pompeo, the presidency said on its Twitter feed. The United States views the heavily armed Hezbollah as a terrorist group.

Aoun also welcomed any U.S. help in demarcating the border with Israel, noting that this would “strengthen security and stability in the South.”

Former PM Fouad Siniora on Friday condemned U.S. President Donald Trump’s stance on Syria’s Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, warning that it “torpedoes all peace initiatives.” “ He is trying to legitimize the occupation of an Arab land whose identity has been Arab throughout history before Israel seized it through brutal  usurpation,” Siniora said in a statement.

Trump said on Thursday it was time for Washington to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a strategic territory it seized from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and annexed in a move never recognized by the international community.

    Secret talks are under way between the EU, Lebanon and Israel to built a sea-pontoon 400 meters by 2O0 meters, 8 hectares in total,1 kilometer away from the shores of the Mediterranean sea, that will ferry international passengers from ports in Israel and Lebanon, to allow them to visit the tax-free area and embark on each other vessels in order to be able to visit both countries. The construction and official opening ceremony is scheduled to take place sometime in the spring of 2023! A name for the pontoon has not yet been agreed upon. The EU wil approach the Gulf States and offer them to co-sponsor the realisation of the dual – country pontoon. In the beginning period, only passengers holding INTERNATIONAL PASSPORTS ( excluding Israeli and Lebanese) will be allowed to cross into both countries on the mainland, still, on half of the pontoon area, both Israeli and Lebanese citizens will be allowed as well as be encouraged to mingle between each other.

            She evidently don’t give a shit about Lebanon, but she cares about Mizraim (Hebrew: מִצְרַיִם / מִצְרָיִם, Modern Mitzráyim Tiberian Miṣrāyim / Miṣráyim ; cf. Arabic مصر, Miṣr) (/mɪt͡srai:m/) is the Hebrew and Aramaic name for the land of Egypt, with the dual suffix -āyim, perhaps referring to the “two Egypts”: Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt.

            The dumbest reaction I’ve seen until now, and that on Twitter. ????

            The question is, who is dumbest, Ron Hughes @wherepond or Dumbyad?
            They still associate @niemals on TWITTER with Niemals on DISQUS. ???? ????

            No wonder that Donald Trump is in the same league. ????

      3. “I have no intention to be infected….”
        Reality check, my degenerate friend: you are too low on the evolution scale even for a virus. You are not infected pal, neither are you an infection. You are just a sad, unfunny joke.

    I love how Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun made Pompeo
    wait for him at the presidential palace. It wasn’t quite as long as Rex
    Tillerson had to wait last year but it was good enough for me Pompeo is one of the most detestable US officials – in the same league as NikkiHaley

  3. 1967 war? What war? It was a sudden surprise attack by the yahoos against Syria, Egypt, Jordan and Palesrine without previous declaration of hostilities, Jews backed by the uk created this problem, but how can you force an English bastard to admit a mistake? for Jews and English scum is a delight, and stealing land is a virtue.

      Exactly! Then in the seventhies they did Iran.


        1. BS israel was always a great friend of Iran during Pahlavi dynasty
          hence, why iran never took sides of whoever was fighting against israel
          and helped them in all fights

      1. This is old news but even though the story got front page headline
        coverage, it was never thoroughly vetted. The history wasn’t
        re-written, it was never written to begin with. There is no big mystery
        as to why the Israelis attacked the Liberty. In 1956, France, Great
        Britain and Israel invaded Egypt in the Sinai to gain control of the
        Suez Canal which had been nationalized by Egypt. Egypt would not let
        Israeli shipping through the canal and this blockage extended all the
        way down to the Straits of Tiran. France and England had their own
        motivations for ensuring the canal remained opened to international
        shipping. However, the U.S. which was not part of this and was caught
        off guard by this. Likewise the U.S.S.R. Both the US and Russia applied
        serious diplomatic, economic and possible military pressure against the
        three invading powers to withdraw and so they did. But all three of
        the invading powers got much of what wanted and for Israel – the right
        to navigate through thee Straits of Tiran. Fast forward to 1967 where
        now once again, Egypt has closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli
        shipping accompanying other mounting tensions and to which Israel warned
        would be taken as casus belli. . Israel makes a preemptive strike
        against the Egyptian Air Force and having destroyed that entire air
        force with few casualties, launches a ground invasion against Egypt also
        highly successful. It is not clear that the US new about the invasion
        ahead of time but since the US sided with Egypt in the 1956 Suez crises
        anything that could monitor electronic traffic could compromise the
        surprise element of the Israeli invasion. By this time Egypt was firmly
        in the Soviet Camp and Israel had the support of the United States.
        Yes the attack was deliberate and yes the USS Liberty and its crew was
        thrown under the bus by their own government, the American government.
        And no it was never thoroughly vetted in the main stream media like it
        is here. At
        the question of whether or not the attack would be blamed on the
        Egyptians is not central to this. The date June 8, 1967 is right in the
        middle of the Six Day war. In other words, so what if they did blame the
        Egyptians? It would get them off the hook, but their main concern was
        keeping the electronic communications as secure as possible. All of this
        occurred at the height of the Vietnam War

    4. Degenerate Arab Nazis don’t give a sh*t about their home countries (in fact, unsurprisingly, since most of them are welfare parasites in the West anyway), yet they get all worked up about the Jooz beating their backward, ret@rded a$$es time after time. And it’s good so. 🙂

    Russia and Lebanon condemn US recognition of Israeli
    sovereignty over Golan Heights


    Lebanese President Michel Aoun is expected to meet with Russian
    President Vladimir Putin today in Moscow to discuss a number of issues,
    including bilateral relations and the Syrian refugee crisis.

    However, discussions today will likely pivot to the recent US
    decision to unilaterally recognize Israeli sovereignty over the
    long-contested Golan Heights region. The Golan Heights have been
    occupied by Israel since 1967, when it seized the territory from Syria.

    Among other countries, both Russia and Syria have deemed the US move
    illegal. Russia has cited the 1981 UN Security Council Resolution 497,
    which declares the annexation “null and void and without international
    legal effect.” Syria has pledged to recover the area “through all
    available means”.
