Berri: No Room for Extremism in Lebanon

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Speaker Nabih Berri hailed on Tuesday the role of security agencies in combating instability in Lebanon and the rise of terrorist networks, voicing his rejection of these groups.

He said: “There is no room for extremists in Lebanon because all factions in the country have shunned the calls to join their ranks.”

He made his remarks during a meeting with the head of the Maronite Council Wadih al-Khazen.

“Religion has nothing to do with these extremists,” added the speaker.

Lebanon was once again hit by a series of deadly blasts recently, the latest of which was on June 25 when a Saudi suicide bomber blew himself up at the Duroy Hotel when he detonated his explosives during a security raid. His accomplice, also a Saudi citizen, survived the blast and is being questioned.

Earlier in June, security forces raided the Napoleon Hotel in Beirut's Hamra district after obtaining information on a plot to target hospitals and high-ranking security officials.

Meanwhile, the shadowy group of the Free Sunnis of Baalbek Brigades recently vowed to task gunmen to attack churches in Lebanon and in the eastern Bekaa valley in particular.

It said on its Twitter account that a “specialized group of free jihadists were tasked with cleansing the Islamic state of Bekaa in particular and in Lebanon in general from the churches.”

The Internal Security Forces' cyber crimes bureau announced on Friday that the aforementioned Twitter account is being probed.

I'm sorry illiterate submissive red assed teabagging eunuch I shouldhave explained. A church is were we Christians go to pray, standing up like human beings not humping a carpet. I'm not surprised you've never heard of one. But it sure explains why your filthy terrorists occupied one in Lassa.

What do you call "Islamic" Republic of Iran and H.A.? I mean really? A group calls itself the party of god? What god? Whose god? What does god mean to you, and what has it meant to you for the past two thousand years? Did H.A. fill out a application and emailed it to God to get the permission to call itself party of god? Disgusting people from both sides.

No room for extremism but only contract killers hiding in Dahyé! With a long history in terror, stretching back to the eighites with their Iranian masters, in the art of blowing themselves up, under Saddam Hussein's tanks first, then blowing up the americans and french peacekeeping soldiers in Beirut in 1983, add to that the american embassy blowup, etc.. only to revisit the method they had perfected over the years, and exported to the world over with hariri's assassination, and all other political opponents…! Thanks Hassounah and Suleimani!
