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.
