Mustaqbal Slams Hizbullah 'Sectarian' Remarks on Baalbek-Hermel Elections


Al-Mustaqbal parliamentary bloc on Tuesday blasted Hizbullah over what it called “sectarian” remarks about the upcoming parliamentary elections in the Baalbek-Hermel district.

“The remarks attributed to Hizbullah's leaders about the parliamentary elections in the Baalbek-Hermel district contain a repeated inclination to resort to sectarian incitement,” said the bloc in a statement issued after its weekly meeting.

“It is an unacceptable attempt to attribute terror labels to a Lebanese group whose most trivial national right is to run for elections in this district and in other districts,” Mustaqbal added.

“This arrogant and undemocratic approach in dealing with the electoral issue is rejected,” the bloc went on to say, accusing Hizbullah of “daily law violations” and “continuous breaching of the requirements of national accord.”

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has recently stressed that his party “will not allow the allies of al-Nusra (Front) and Daesh (Islamic State group) to represent the residents of Baalbek and Hermel.”

“The residents of Baalbek and Hermel will not allow those who armed al-Nusra and Daesh to represent the region,” Nasrallah added, in an apparent jab at Mustaqbal and some figures of the eastern border town of Arsal.

Party of snails.... these comments are 3 or 4 days old as reported here.

Most Mustaqbal leaders have a brain irrigation issue. I press them to take ginkgo biloba to improve their condition.

Its just lip service for those poor folk who depend on them, no different than what Kizballah has been telling its people..... we categorically deny any involvement with Israel and death to the enemy....
