Aoun: No Shot to be Fired from Lebanon if No Israeli Aggression

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

President Michel Aoun has stressed that “not a single bullet” will be fired from Lebanon if Israel does not attack first.

“We have adopted the policy of dissociating ourselves from the conflicts in the region, especially in Syria, and if Lebanon does not come under any Israeli aggression, not a single bullet will be fired from its territory,” Aoun, who is in New York for the annual U.N. General Assembly meetings, told France's Le Figaro newspaper.

Warning that Israel is seeking to “fragment the region into sectarian parts and minority alliances,” the president emphasized that such formats “contradict with the nature of our system” and “are doomed to fail.”

“In Lebanon, the system is based on consensus and having a say does not mean that a veto is being used and some foreign public opinion is insisting on turning Hizbullah into an enemy,” Aoun added.

Separately, the president called on France and Europe to “back a gradual and safe repatriation of Syrian refugees and to contribute to UNRWA and the CEDRE projects.”

“One of each three residents in Lebanon is either displaced or a refugee, and naturalizing them in Lebanon would alter our demographic character in an irreversible manner,” Aoun warned.

“Everyone knows my history and only Lebanon's interest dictates my work,” the president said.

He’s only speaking for hizbala, he’s their president, definitely not ours.

Aoun: No Shot to be Fired from Lebanon if No Israeli Aggression

so tell us please: what's the use for your iranian terrorist militia? How are you going to Liberate Shebaa farms and Jerusalem without firing a shot?

Thumb ex-fpm 24 September 2018, 18:27

I believe he is saying that hezbollah is no longer a resistance whose purpose is to fight the occupiers and liberate land but rather an internal intimidating armed group that dictates government policy both internal and external.

"How are you going to Liberate Shebaa farms and Jerusalem without firing a shot?"

listen to the genius!!!!

اكد رئيس الجمهورية ميشال عون أن الاقتصادي يحتاج الى متابعة لا سيما بعد اعداد الخطة الاقتصادية الوطنية التي ترسم خارطة طريق للحياة الاقتصادية اللبنانية المقبلة بعد مؤتمر “سيدر”، معتبرًا انه من الخطأ الربط بين السياسة والاقتصاد

It is an embarrassment to have a clueless president.

According to the UN Shebaa Farmas are Syrian not Lebanese territory.

The quisling is the current mouth piece for Bashar and Iran and not the Lebanese.
Lebanon has not and never has been his interest but rather the power and money that he and his cronies has been the longer term goal. Lebanon will continue to suffer from this puppet president as he continues to remind all that the nation will not be independent from Syria.

لفت عون الى أن دمج مقاتلي حزب الله بالجيش اللبناني قد يشكّل مخرجًا، مضيفًا: “لكن في الوقت الراهن فإن البعض يدين تدخله في الحرب ضد داعش والنصرة في سوريا، غير ان الوقائع هنا هي ان الارهابيين كانوا يهاجمون اراضينا، وحزب الله كان يدافع عنها، والحزب لا يلعب اي دور عسكري في الداخل اللبناني ولا يقوم بأي عمل على الحدود مع اسرائيل. لقد بات وضع الحزب مرتبطا بمسألة الشرق الاوسط وبحلّ النزاع في سوريا.”

The president is practicing takiah!

Hezbollah according to nassrallah has been fighting in Syria for seven years ; since the beginning of the syrian revolution. There was no Daesh or Nusra back then. Also, is he telling us that hezbollah was/is defending Lebanon in Qusayr, Zabadani, Aleppo, Homs, etc?

The attacks inside Lebanon came more than two two years after Hezbollah's involvement in Syria and after repeated warnings for it to withdraw from Syria.

hezbollah thugs thought they could go to Syria and kill with impunity.
They got what they deserved, end of story.

Any attacks on you and your criminal militia are justified and give reason to rejoice.

"some foreign public opinion is insisting on turning Hizbullah into an enemy,” Aoun added.

Strange, coz just the other day Nassrallah said:

Nasrallah: We consider the U.S. administration an enemy while some in the region and Lebanon consider it a friend and ally.

Yes, we all know your 'history', your present, and your future.

Aoun: No Shot to be Fired from Lebanon if No Israeli Aggression

Israel has indicated on several occasions its readiness to make peace with Lebanon, end hostilities, and normalize relations. You are saying you and your iranian militia will not fire a bullet if Israel does not attack Lebanon.

What is preventing you then from signing a peace treaty with Israel and end this state of imposed hostility? Or is it Iran/syria that are not allowing you to make peace with Israel in order to keep hezbollah in total control of Lebanon?

simple questions yet tough for a sell-out to comprehend.

Remember in the late 1980's an agreement was reached but when the Lebanese delegates return home with it your Syrian occupiers tore it up. Now that Syria doesn't occupy your country perhaps it is time to send out new peace feelers towards Israel. Israel will not turn you down.
The only body that can stop this happeneing is Hizballah, and this is an internal Lebanese matter.

Aounism at its most Shameless!

Thumb zahle1 24 September 2018, 19:44

We all complain about Aoun but our leaders selected him and gave him the big chair. Amazing!

Thumb s.o.s 24 September 2018, 19:59

And for that very same reason most Lebanese boycotted the rigged elections. We are in an impasse!

Thumb whyaskwhy 24 September 2018, 20:44

Good point Zahle....

As both President Aoun and Prime Minister Netanyahu will be in New York at the UN at the same time, perhaps Pres. Aoun should take the bull by the horns and propose a meeting "even a secret not for the protocol one", with PM Netanyahu.

It's already arranged I am sure.
