Hariri Asks FM to Prepare U.N. Complaint over Israel Threats

W300

Prime Minister Saad Hariri on Monday asked Foreign Minister Jebran Bassil to prepare a U.N. complaint over Israel's latest threats against Lebanon.

“The repeated threats that are being voiced by Israeli government officials and in the media against Lebanon's civilians and their legitimate institutions and infrastructure are aimed at covering up for Israel's constant violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, to which Lebanon is committed,” Hariri said at the beginning of a cabinet session.

“Lebanon has always called for the implementation of UNSCR 1701 and all its stipulations,” Hariri added.

“I call on the foreign minister to document these official Israeli stances that have been declared through the media in order to prepare a detailed letter about them to the U.N. Security Council so that the international community shoulders its responsibility towards this premeditated stirring of tensions and this blatant threat to regional stability,” the PM went on to say.

Tonto .... No one needs a lesson in patriotism from someone who supports the occupation of Lebanon from an Iranian militia

Lol, SaudiDemagogue compares a fully Lebanese group that defends Lebanon from Zionist and Wahhabist invasion with foreign occupation?

GigaLiar ... I did not make a comparison because every case is different. But we are under occupation by an Iranian funded and commanded militia that usurped the power of the state

Just because the Mustaqbal miltia funded by the US and Saudia fell apart out of incompetence in 2006 doesn't mean it wasn't there. The militia lives on in the Salafist gangs of Tripoli.

Ugh, 2008, got it wrong too, but it's hard not to confuse the Israeli onslaught in 2006 with the attempted attack by their minions in 2008... The Halba massacre against unarmed men was a disgrace, showing the true colours of Mustaqbal.

You are both confused people. Claiming that Mustaqbal had militias is patently false. Your side lies have been shown clearly in 2007. Yes - many politicians and institutions had bodyguards to protect them from your sides thugs but these hardly qualify as militias.

And yes the Halba massacre was a disgrace but it was not organized and all involved are wanted by the state. None of the killers that have participated in the invasion of Beirut are wanted by the state. They are now the state.

Lol, we may have our disagreements, but we're all equally shitty with dates, it seems...

Using cute words such as weaponized show the lack of argument you have. There is a fundamental difference between having a militia with command and control and a group of supporters of a party with individual weapons.
