Aoun: Israel Construction of Separation Wall Opposes Stability Efforts

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

President Michel Aoun said Friday that Israel's construction of a separation cement wall along Lebanon's southern border “contradicts endeavors aiming to preserve stability.”

During a meeting with visiting UNIFIL Commander Major General Michael Beary, Aoun said: “Israel's construction of the wall along the Blue Line does not coincide with efforts to preserve stableness and security in the South.”

He asked Beary to dwell on Lebanon's reservations about the line mainly that Lebanon does not identify the Blue line as its definite border.

Israel began constructing concrete walls along several sections of Israel's northern border with Lebanon.

The Blue Line is a border demarcation between Lebanon and Israel published by the United Nations on 7 June 2000 for the purposes of determining whether Israel had fully withdrawn from Lebanon

Lebanon had expressed its reservation about the line and confirmed that identifying it was solely the responsibility of the United Nations and that they would respect the line as identified.

You'd think the iranian would be happy Israel is building a separation wall...

He needs to better explain why a separation wall between two countries at war is a bad idea.

So, Mr President, take an initiative. Maybe be courageous like Sadate and Lebanon will get all it wants from Israel.

Hezbollah would never allow that.

If Lebanon didn't want the wall, instead wanting stability in the country and along its southern border, the government could have sat down with Israel and reach a peace agreement. The Ras al-Nakura border crossing is ready for a delegation the moment Hizballah allows it.
We must remember that they did that in the late 1980's, a document that was torn up by the Syrian occupiers the moment it landed back on Lebanese soil.

The quisling is simply reiterating what his masters in Tehran instruct him to say. If the Ayatolla of Rockinrolla decides he dislikes bananas next week then the Quisling will be instructed to disallow apes into the country ....so forth and so on.
