Hizbullah Rejects Engaging in Spat with Mustaqbal despite Sharp Rift

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah is determined not to get involved in a verbal spat with al-Mustaqbal Movement, calling on the March 14 alliance to end its “adventures” and “have the honor to join the battle against takfiris.”

“The resistances today is fully ready and equipped today,” al-Joumhouria quoted sources close to Hizbullah as saying on Tuesday.

The sources reiterated calls on the March 14 coalition to “join the battle to defend Lebanon.”

“The army, people, resistance formula allowed Lebanon to accomplish what the (international) coalition against the Islamic State group failed to achieve in Iraq and Syria.”

The sources pointed out that Lebanon “was able to prevent ISIL (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) from invading the country by depending on its army and resistance.”

Al-Liwaa newspaper reported that Hizbullah's leadership will not respond to Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq's latest statement, considering that State Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Minister Mohammed's stance is enough.

A war of words occurred between al-Mashnouq and Fneish, who are affiliated to al-Mustaqbal movement and Hizbullah respectively, after the Interior Minister lashed out at the party during a memorial commemorating the assassination of General Wissam al-Hassan in 2012.

Mashnouq told al-Joumhouria newspaper on Tuesday that he had previously conveyed his point of view to several officials including Army Intelligence chief Brigadier General Edmond Fadel and Hizbullah Liaison and Coordination Officer Wafiq Safa.

The al-Mustaqbal official said on Saturday that “the security plan in Lebanon failed due to the implementation of partisan immunity,” accusing security forces of targeting the Sunnis in Lebanon.

He rejected attempts to turn his party into Sahwa leaders, a network of Sunni tribal fighters created by the U.S. in 2005-2006 to combat al-Qaida in Iraq

In his strong rhetoric statement Mashnouq accused a security institution without naming it of being biased to Hizbullah.

Fneish lashed out at Mashnouq, rejecting any security balance.

“Areas that don't support takfiris or attack the army shouldn't be equal to groups that carry out such acts.”

Sources close to the March 14 alliance told al-Liwaa that Mashnouq's statement indicates that he “had enough.”

“Hizbullah violated all its commitments with the interior ministry and its branches... and didn't cooperate.”

The sources, however, considered that the verbal spat will not impact the cabinet.

The "army people resistance" formula brought chaos, doom, and economic disaster upon Lebanon.

Hezb is good at launching wars... just like they provoked Israel in 2006, they provoked those jihadists in Syria... and now they talk about "resistance"... again! How foolish do they think we are!?

Thumb _mowaten_ 21 October 2014, 13:46

and m14 is good at taking sides with the outside enemy each time. instead of condemning israeli occupation, their attacks on lebanon, their massacres, they chose to turn against those defending this country.

today they have the same choice again, either close their eyes on the takfiri threat, ignore the massacres and attacks and blame hezbollah. or show some patriotism and side with lebanon in this fight against savagery and intolerance.

They condemned every outside and inside aggression. Writing unsubstantiated paragraphs of propaganda does not make your claims valid.

Thumb thepatriot 21 October 2014, 15:57

Stop your propaganda momo! Occupation is a wrong and obsolete word! There are 365 disputed lands across the world between Nations! No need for a "resistance" for that!

You want Hezb to go wage wars in Syria, get retaliation, then you expect us to show "patriotism" and side by them!! Pffff... pathetic!

at that time Chamoun naturalized all Christian Palestinians to increase the numbers of Christians and benefit from the capital they brought into the country, while creating a major problem with the camps.

what hizbushaitan is not realizing is how much they are hated in the country, thus they are unable to realize what is coming their way due to their exactions to others in the country.

They also want to achieve an Islamic Republic

yay! he talks like he's living on the moon. he talks like bashar during the beginning of the syrian revolution. thank god he's not leading the country. If he was, we'd be refugees in syria.

Thumb _mowaten_ 21 October 2014, 13:48

without hezbollah we'd be refugees in out own country, being parked in concentration camps while settlers erase towns and villages and replace them with kibbutzim.

how dramatic seriously!

Thumb eagledawn 21 October 2014, 16:08

the paid mouthpiece has the audacity to write tailor made and canned politburo statements. Isn't what you say exactly what your terror organization did to the Syrian people: Made Them Refugees in Their Own Country!

Thumb galaxy 21 October 2014, 09:59

coolmec
if we change all the politicians tomorrow and bring in all fresh harvrad graduates from all sects to run the country, do you think it will make any difference? Do you think hezbollah agenda, plans, and regional sectarian objectives will change? Do you think hezbollah would have not gone to Syria? Yes, our politicians leave a lot to be desired but our existential problem is this rogue sectarian organization that thinks it is above the law and can do what it pleases.

I cosign what you wrote. We have so many brilliant minds abroad and so many brain washed over here.

yes as a matter of fact it will make a difference nothing could be worse for Lebanon that the current status i.e. the current leaders encompassing m8, m14 and the rest

They prefer to unleash their medias and talking heads to do launch the attacks, the backhanded way.

Thumb whyaskwhy 21 October 2014, 13:05

this is what most of us are saying enough whoemever comes into power from the existing left or right is a continuation of the past. Many of us Lebanese have had our fill of these extremist and all we want is a peaceful law abiding nation. This will not be full-filled with the current management.

Filthy murdering militia

I myself do not want Hizb to bring back their killers from Syria. I would much rather they send off what's left of them in Lebanon and raw7a bala raj3a!

Thumb tric.portugal 21 October 2014, 21:13

calling HZ killers when they fight against the Al-Qaeda!!??? HA are heroes!

Thumb tric.portugal 21 October 2014, 21:18

in Lebanon is impressionant the support that the Al-Qaeda have in this country! they persecuted the Cristhians in the region...and some retarded persons in Lebanon, and the média, are supporting the terrorists when they atack who is fighting in the biguining against that "ebola" whaabis...

Thumb Maxx 22 October 2014, 00:38

The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend. I'm against both terrorist organizations (and ISIL too, to boot).
I'm calling Hizb killers because they killed many an innocent civilian throughout their reign of terror, be it in Lebanon, Syria, Argentina, Bulgaria... Just because you are gobbling up their propaganda about "yes, we are these terrific great blokes, look at us shoot at a globally-accepted evil, al-Qaeda (whom we resemble to a hair - save for them being Sunni and us being Shiite)", doesn't make them less of killers in reality.
