Aoun: Hizbullah Does Not Use Arms inside Lebanon

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

President Michel Aoun has announced that Hizbullah does not use its controversial arsenal of arms inside Lebanon.

“There are political rather than security concerns, because everyone knows that Hizbullah does not use its arms inside Lebanon, and up until now, this has only happened once, when the then Lebanese government took measures against the party,” Aoun said in an interview with RT television, referring to the May 2008 clashes.

Separately, the president ruled out an imminent Israeli war on Lebanon.

“After the July 2006 war, I believe that Israel will not repeat its aggression against Lebanon, because it will not be able to break the Lebanese front,” Aoun said.

No, of course not. We imagine Rafik Hariri's assassination. He's still alive, the mausoleum is a sham. Pierre Gemayel is alive too. Samir Kassir and Gibran Tueni signed today's editorial. We imagined May 7, we also imagined the Abra clashes, and also Arsal .it's all the fruit of our imagination. Can someone tell me what medication Aoun is on? He's totally delusional.

Hezbollah has used its weapons and will use its weapons inside and outside Lebanon whenever Iran orders it to and nothing you say or will say to distort the facts will change anything. You are the laughing stock of the entire world.

Just as an easy reflection of the the level of sophistication of the average voter most would be hard pressed to convince themselves that the Easter Bunny does not exist and if he Sheikh or Priest said he does exist then Easter Bunny exists after all! the Quisling has no alternatives but to agree with his masters or suffer the repeat of recent history with those who disagree with Kizb or Syria.

What did he just say?
When the "Lebanese government took measures against it" then they used their arms internally.
What do you call those? Above or under the law? How do you allow a Lebanese citizen carry on attacks on foreign soil without being responsible for that citizen when a retaliation occurs?
If the Interpol asked for that citizen that carried terrorist act in an outside country will the government deliver or comply delivering the terrorist hiding in beirut southern suburbs?
