Al-Mustaqbal Says Hizbullah, Extremist Groups 'Two Sides of Same Coin'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Al-Mustaqbal parliamentary bloc on Tuesday launched another verbal attack on Hizbullah's "militia," stating that the party and extremist groups are “two sides of the same coin.”

"The weapons of the resistance were formerly aimed at Israel but have now become positioned and used inside the country,” the MPs said in a released statement after their weekly meeting at the Center House.

Hizbullah's arms have thus become those of a militia, they added.

Al-Mustaqbal bloc elaborated: “Hizbullah's arms aim at changing the political system in Lebanon but they no longer enjoy Lebanese consensus. The party's call for agreeing on a new political formula in the country is no longer viable after it took the unilateral decision to launch a war against the Syrian people in 2012.”

“By taking this decision, Hizbullah has abandoned all national pacts and accords, including the Baabda Declaration.”

Again, al-Mustaqbal MPs called on Hizbullah to withdraw its forces from the neighboring country.

“The life in Lebanon will not go back to normal unless Hizbullah goes back to playing its national role only,” they said.

“Hizbullah's fighting in Syria, which was a regional decision, has dragged the Lebanese into a confrontation with Syrians,” they added.

“The party is trying to give the international community the impression that it is fighting terrorism but this attempt has been exposed. Hizbullah and extremist groups are two sides of the same coin.”

Separately, the bloc demanded President Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam to form a new cabinet of non-partisans.

They also urged them “not to surrender to Hizbullah's blackmailing.”

Commenting on the deadly clashes between the residents on the Souwairi town in West Bekaa, they stated that it is “unacceptable and a shame that that social relations transform into armed disputes.”

The MPs urged security forces to enter the town and restore coexistence.

Clashes between the Shouman and Jinbeen families in the town left four people dead on Sunday.

Hizbos are the biggest takfiris in Lebanon...

Thumb lebanon_first 24 December 2013, 19:05

Cedre.

Hezbollahis are takfiris who succeeded. (to take over the country's institution)

Any takfiri group who takes over a country's institutions becomes with time more pragmatic and more reasonable, compared to, for example, fath el islam. But that doesnt make them less a milicia who is bullying the whole countrh.

takfiris salughter people who are not of the same religion. get a grip of reality man you're just talking BS

PEACE you are so naive. Al Mustaqbal here is not comparing "religious rule" here between Iran and the KSA (which they always praise)

Missing peace 24 December 2013, 21:57

"stating that the party and extremist groups are “two sides of the same coin.”

yes they are... they are saying that hezbollah and takfiris are both the same thing...

Thumb geha 25 December 2013, 08:13

hizbushaitan have been takfiris since day one:
way back, around end of the 80s, early 90s during one of the fighting that occurred then between amal/hizbushaitan on one side and all the others in what was west Beirut then, amal/hizbushaitan were shouting:
بدنا نقولها على المكشوف سني ما بدنا نشوف.
so since then it was clear they were sectarian extremists takfiris.

" life in lebanon not go back to normal until HA withdraws their milicia from syria."

why?

I dont agree that they fight in syria. But I agree even less of the obstructionism of Mustakbal. Let HA fight it out in syria. Why is mustakbal putting syria before lebanon? Lebanon had a civil war and nobody stopped chosing governments because of us. why do we need to do so for syria?

Missing bigjohn 24 December 2013, 20:30

The KSA is playing a dangerous game. They want civil war in Lebanon and the Syrian regime out. Why? because they want to turn the Arab/Israeli conflict into a Sunni/Shiite conflict, and put a TOTAL END to the ARAB spring which is a big threat to their hated rule that saw their allies in Tunisia and Egypt's mubarak overthrown in a couple of weeks without the ability of the western powers to help them.

Missing bigjohn 24 December 2013, 20:38

When you have a regime that in-prisons a person for calling for "constitutional Monarchy" for 4 years and 400 lashes, this regime has no popular support. The KSA has the worst human rights record in the world..not ONLY politically, but Economically, and socially.

Missing peace 24 December 2013, 21:56

it is not about turning it into a sunni/shii conflict but rather all about oil....

Thumb proudm14 25 December 2013, 14:20

bigjohn,

I find it funny that you complain about KSA human rights abuses but ignore the fact that 100,000 are dead so far in Syria because Bashar did not want to have elections. Ignoring what suits you.

Default-user-icon Lebanon_1st (Guest) 24 December 2013, 20:16

Do you guys even think that the decision to withdraw back all hizb forces from syria still lies with Hassan? It is Not his Decision anymore, and will never be his decision again, this is simply undeniable.

Missing bigjohn 24 December 2013, 20:24

So according to Al mustaqbal, HA is extremist because it intervened in Syria. How about the KSA invasion of Bahrain to help a hated dictator stay in power? Is that extreme? Or the tens of billions of dollars the KSA paid to help Iraq invade Iran in the 1980's or the West invading Iraq years later? How about the larger number of FOREIGN Tafiris wahabis the KSA is arming in Syria? Is that extreme? How about Al Mustaqbal calling on ALL foreign fighters from all countries to leave Syria?

Takfiris Wahabis loyal to KSA and Takfiris Wahabis loyal to Al Qaeda are a much better example of Extremist groups of "two sides of the same stone"

Missing peace 24 December 2013, 21:55

because the simple reason is that hezbollah as you say is a lebanese party whereas you are comparing it with a country...
do not mix up things and compare what is comparable...
besides they say that the takfiris and hezbis are the same thing LOL!
you are the perfect example of a syllogism... LOL

Missing bigjohn 24 December 2013, 22:07

So to YOU EXTREME ONLY means members to a political party? It is NOT extreme if governments do the same? How about the Shiites from Iraq, the druze from lebanon, and the Sunni Takfiris from all over the world fighting in Iraq? they might be members of a political parties or NOT. That makes a BIG difference to you? Are you that limited?

Missing peace 24 December 2013, 23:34

stick to what he says... isn't that what you always say? so he is not comparing countries but parties and groups... is that too limited for you?

so stick to the comparison instead of deflecting to twist what he says for your own sake....

Missing bigjohn 24 December 2013, 20:32

I wish people stick to what was said in the article!

Missing peace 24 December 2013, 21:53

yes they are, yet their terror is different... they have the entire control of half lebanon, they decide of the fate of the country, the gvt cannot do anything if it displeases hezbollah.... if that is not terrorism to impose their will on an entire country then what is it?

When the m14 minority get the majority of the Lebanese votes than you are in a position to complain.

Missing peace 24 December 2013, 23:32

well easy to get the votes of people you terrify... like all dictators that get 99% of votes... very easy to get a majority under a gun put under your throat....

PEACE who was threatened from voting for M14? Thousands were paid from all over the world to come to Lebanon and vote for m14 (and m8)

Thumb proudm14 25 December 2013, 14:16

bigjohn we are not allowed to run candidates in any Shia areas...the only people allowed to run in Shia areas are Hezb, Amal, SSNP and Ba'ath. This means that half the country is not free, and does not have free elections.

go look at what happens when non-Hezb Shia try to run on M14/independent tickets in the South.

Missing bigjohn 25 December 2013, 17:33

proudm14 Non-Hizb candidates DID run in Shiite areas. You had Marxists including the former resistance fighter who was captured and released by Israel who ran and M14 mustapha Assad among many others. They lost big. what you are saying is a LIE.

It does not matter who started the killing. The killings must stop on ALL SIDES.

Missing bigjohn 24 December 2013, 22:37

In addition to calling for HA members to leave Syria (and other foreign fighters fighting on the government side) Has Al Mustaqbal called for ALL Sunni Takfiri Jihadists to leave Syria and for the KSA to stop arming them?

Thumb proudm14 25 December 2013, 14:14

We have no control over random takfiri jihadists. Hezbollah, however, is an organized Lebanese political party, which has signed an accord that agreed to insulate Lebanon from the Syrian conflict.

Missing bigjohn 25 December 2013, 17:36

You can MAKE a public statements by asking them to leave and asking the KSA who owns M14 to stop arming them. That is a big first step.

in bahrein people DO NOT want to overthrow the regime but to get the same rights... said a shia bahreini to me... you know better than him i guess?

Missing bigjohn 25 December 2013, 09:03

If you say that a Bahraini Shiite told you that he does not want the regime overthrown, than this is very scientific and final (why do i bother).

and may i return the question to you: in bahrein people can rebel but not in syria? LOL

Missing bigjohn 25 December 2013, 08:46

People have the right to rebel everywhere without a foreign country like the KSA invading a small country with 15,000 soldiers and keeping the government in power.
