Mustaqbal Lashes Out at Assad's Remarks about Hariri


Al-Mustaqbal Movement strongly replied to Syrian President Bashar Assad's accusations against Prime Minister Saad Hariri, urging him to “stop sticking his nose in Lebanon's affairs.”

“Remarks were attributed to the criminal terrorist regime of Bashar Assad accusing PM Hariri of not being the master of himself. Assad is the last creature on earth entitled to speak of sovereignty and freedom of decision,” read the Mustaqbal statement.

It added: “Assad must stop sticking his nose in Lebanon's affairs and he must stop spreading poison in Lebanese issues.”

Reports have quoted Assad speaking in front of a delegation of the parties of the Arab Front, that Hariri “is not the master himself and he was sacked and did not resign.”

Hariri announced a surprise resignation in a televised appearance from Riyadh on November 4, in which he accused Iran of meddling in Lebanon in a vicious tirade.

In his first TV interview since he announced a surprise resignation from Riyadh on November 4, Hariri said Sunday he will return to Lebanon to seek a new settlement with President Michel Aoun and Iran-backed Hizbullah.

Hariri, looking downcast and tired, denied he was being held against his will in the kingdom and said he was compelled to resign to save Lebanon from imminent dangers, which he didn't specify.

Assad and Nassrallah are the last creatures on earth entitled to speak of sovereignty and freedom of decision.

They Know more about freedom, than your god forsaken Saudi family.

flamethrower; we all know the battle that happened over Lebanon in 1982 and it had nothing to do with regaining the Golan Heights.

Better luck next time.

Al-Mustaqbal doesn't belong to Cedarland. Go away to Israel-Saudi-Arabia.

Thumb janoubi 15 November 2017, 17:05

great, but why are you asking for their 'detained' leader to come back from Saudi Arabia when you are now asking for the whole lot of his party to go to Saudi Arabia?

LoL as usual, the more one accuses someone of things, the more he's guilty of the things he's accusing the others.

Bashar is Vladimir's toy.

Befitting French expression that pretty much sumps it up: "l'hypocrisie quand tu nous tiens!"

Whether Hariri is, or isn't, right now a master of his destiny and that of the Lebanese government is open for discussion. But Assad is definitely the last person to comment on it, given that he himself is a puppet whose masters reside in Teheran and Moscow.

"Hariri is not the master himself"
right message, wrong guy

If I didn't speak French that would be rather weird given that I lived in France for 20 yrs.

Nobody knows everything that happens in the ME, neither do I. But I do know more than the average European.
The ME is a fascinating subject and it interests me. Otherwise, I wouldnt'be here.
