Berri Slams Netanyahu Speech at U.N.


Speaker Nabih Berri on Friday lashed out at a speech given by Israeli Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations General Assembly, Saying it was filled with “contempt” and “grudge.”

“Hizbullah doesn’t preside over the U.N. Security Council nor do President Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister (Najib Miqati), but Lebanon does the state that was slaughtered (by Israel) in 1996,” Berri said in a statement.

He stressed that “it’s a matter of time that the world realizes that the organization might have the time to avenge its dignity and understand that Israel can’t stay above the law and above accountability.”

“Lebanon that resisted and defeated (Israeli) aggression in the south will be the resistant in the Security Council, biased to the side of the right,” Berri said.

He noted that Netanyahu’s history has a “track record filled with crimes and murders.”

Netanyahu on Friday told the General Assembly that Hizbullah controls Lebanon and the Security Council also.

Nothing yahoo is a slime bag. he does not want peace with the palestinians he wants to take the whole palestinian lands and kick the palestinian people to lebanon. That plot is so old and its killing him that Hizballah is there to stop him. I wish Hizballah will unleach the big rockets on tel aviv and finish us from these occupiers of the holy lands. Also to my fellow christians on here who will give me thumbs down. I warn you that the plot is on you to disburse you and scatter you around the globe . Please wake up and unite with all the lebanese sects and stop your prejudism . The jew is your ennemie not your friend. go back to history and read kessinger books. It was his plot from the beginning. This plot is still going to kick palestinians out to lebanon and ship all the christians to the west. Wake up and think before you comment. your batrak is awaken now and knows the truth. ask him
