Hizbullah Rejects Presence of 'Israeli Agents' in Lebanon: We're Not Proud to Call Them Lebanese

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah announced on Saturday its rejection of the presence of “Israeli agents” in Lebanon, in an apparent response to Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi “who went to the Palestinian occupied territories to convince them to return" as the party said.

"Someone went to occupied Palestine to convince some agents who withdrew with the enemy's soldiers in May 2000 to return to Lebanon,” Loyalty to Resistance bloc MP Ali Meqdad said at a party event in the Bekaa city of Baalbek, expressing that “this issue has annoyed” him.

"Theye have become Israelis and do not want to regain the Lebanese and Arab identity,” he stated.

Al-Rahi on Friday said during a visit to the Druze village of Isfiya near the northern Israeli city of Haifa that the Lebanese state must not deal with its citizens who fled to Israel in 2000 as “criminals,” rejecting also that their possible return to the country be tied to “an amnesty or international resolutions.”

Meqdad added: “We tell those who are preparing a draft law on these traitors' return that they themselves have announced their rejection of such a decision.”

He continued: “The resistance acted with high morality after the liberation. It did not retaliate or penalize agents, but left this issue to the judiciary. It did not seek revenge against their families, but on the contrary, it dealt with them as our religion and our culture stipulate with openness and without retaliation.”

"We do not want Israeli agents among us in Lebanon, what we suffered during the occupation was enough, and just like they are not proud of their Lebanese identity, we are too not proud to call them Lebanese.”

Thousands of Lebanese fled across the border with Israeli forces in 2000 when Israel ended its 22-year occupation of Lebanon.

Trained, financed and armed by Israel, the South Lebanon Army (SLA) battled Palestinians and Hizbullah fighters during the occupation of southern Lebanon.

Many SLA veterans feel they have been abandoned by Israeli authorities in their adopted home, often working in low-paying factory, restaurant or cleaning jobs, but unable to return home for fear of retribution from Hizbullah and others who considered them traitors.

But others, like former commander of an SLA special forces unit Victor Nader, said he was content with his new life in Israel.

"We are very happy here and my son is serving in the Israeli army," he told Agence France Presse on Wednesday.

"The Party of God." God, a figment of our imagination, is infallible. We represent this imaginary being and hence our actions are infallible. What a self-serving, arrogant and utterly meaningless name. Littering the trail of history are the excrements of civilizations, and chief among those excrements are the earthly representatives of God and other fairytale characters. Lebanon's proud contribution to the dung heaps of time is "The Party of God." The otherworldly and lofty names that this group attributes to itself, its members (those "saints") and its actions (yes those "divine victories") are clearly puerile attempts to conceal its nature as the beating stick of Iranian tyranny.

(1). Mr. Meqdad, It has been repeated many times, that the majority of those who served with the SLA are Lebanese Shiites. It has been equally said several times that even Nabih Berri pressured his sect to reason because he said it in public, those in the SLA in majority Mininah. Then what is a traitor any different from the other? If the SLA obediently served the Israeli against their government, is the one serving the Syrian any better?

Thumb -phoenix1 31 May 2014, 19:22

(2). Mr. Meqdad. Is the one serving the Syrian or the Iranian in any moral position to accuse another traitor yet ignore his own acts of treason? And what do you call someone who goes to war against Israel or to join the Syrian war without even bothering to tell the legally and constitutionally mandated government and the state it serves? And he who smuggles tons and tons of weapons into the country is he not a traitor? And he who occupies large sways of Beirut and other parts of Lebanon, or kidnaps local and foreign people, or blows his opponents to shreds, is he to be called a patriot? Mr. Meqdad, for all I know, you can count sheep all day, but the pastures that most people belong to walk on two legs, not four. Don't worry, they'll clap for you even if you said nothing.

"Hizbullah Rejects Presence of 'Israeli Agents' in Lebanon: We're Not Proud to Call Them Lebanese"..............................Well, lets ask the M14 leaders and especially the Sunni sectarians in M14. Are you proud to call them "Lebanese"? Do you reject the Presence of 'Israeli Agents' in Lebanon? Ask Soeid who criticized Al Rahi for going to occupied palestine? M14 tells their followers that they are opposed to Israel as much as M8. al Rahi is making what he calls a "humanitarian" view, not political. Well, let the political leaders state their views. Are M14 leaders afraid that they will not be united on this issue and will TOTALLY be weaker if they speak out? The M14 leaders have made their political views well known about Assad, KSA, STL, etc . Why are they so silent about this issue? if they believe their views are different than M8 or HA, speak up...

Are you another idiot who calls Ziad rahbani and leftists like myself SSNP? I see you do not like the SSNP, well in Lebanon we do not agree on the SSNP (including my leftist friends). but, in lebanon there is no comparison with the SSNP and Israel.

To anonymetexasusa KSA executes more persons than Iran for a lot more reasons.

PEACE..In the 1980's when Israel invaded and occupied Lebanon, the KSA, the wahabis, and the Al qaida type were MORE interested going to Afghanistan and fighting the Russians and their leftist allies. It was HA and secular lebanese resistant groups who were fighting Israel. After the 2006 Israeli aggression in lebanon and HA ability to stop Israeli advancement into Lebanon for 33 days, which no Arab Army was ever able to achieve in the past, there was a huge political change in the mostly Arab Sunni world. Every poll that was taken in the Arab world including those from the West like the Sadat center at the Univ. of maryland and the PEW center showed that the Arab PEOPLE admire the most are Nassrala, Ahmadnejad, Chaves, and Assad in order. Not the pro western puppet states like the KSA.

Thumb Machia 31 May 2014, 22:29

Remember this Flamethrower:
If there are no more Hamas, Hezbollah or Islamic Jihad, there is no more Syrian foreign policy because it is the main component in the diplomacy of Damascus. The Lebanese are the first victims of Syrian terrorism. Hezbollah said that there was no more Israeli civil society, because it is a militarized society, thereby justifying attacks against Israeli civilians. Israelis protesting for peace have become victims of the attacks and have lost their way for several years. Palestinians should have continued to throw stones. Because of the attacks, they have lost the support of a part of international opinion. Terrorism has also provided a justification for the policy of destruction carried out by the Israeli army against the Palestinians.

As for Islamo fascism:
"The term "Islamofascism" is included in the New Oxford American Dictionary, which defines it as "a controversial term equating some modern Islamic movements with the European fascist movements of the early twentieth century".[1] The term is used in this manner by writers like Stephen Schwartz[2] and Christopher Hitchens,[3] to describe Islamist extremists, including terrorist groups such as al Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah. "

I was gentler than this. I didn't lump Hezbollah with Al Qaeda whom I describe as Islamo Nazis. As long as they are killing each other that is a benefit to humanity.

Any person with half a brain realizes that Hizbollah was created, funded and indoctrinated by Iranian Basij and it is by definition a spying agency. Hizbollah is a criminal organization that has assassinated most prominent Lebanese. It has destroyed our economy and exiled all good foreign corporations that used to make Beirut their regional headquarter. The only true resistance is against this Basij organization, an Iranan creation, tht transformed Lebanon into another North Korea that no civilized country would invest in.
