AMAL Supporters Replace Libya Flag with AMAL Flag

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Supporters of the AMAL Movement have replaced a Libyan flag with their movement’s flag near the Seaside Arena venue in Beirut in protest at the invitation of Libya to an Arab economic summit that will be held in the capital later this month.

Video footage shows a number of young men surrounding a flag pole near the venue. One of them mounts a ladder and starts removing the Libyan flag, cheered and instructed by his comrades. He then replaces it with an AMAL flag amid calls for “burning” the Libyan one.

Tensions have surged in recent days over the issue of Libya’s participation.

AMAL accuses the former regime of slain Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi of kidnapping its revered founder Imam Moussa al-Sadr during a visit to Libya in 1978.

The case has strained Libyan-Lebanese ties for the past four decades and in recent days the invitation and talk of the possibility of freeing Gadhafi’s son Hannibal from Lebanese prisons have deepened tensions between AMAL and the Free Patriotic Movement.

ألوية الصدر لليبيين: نحن في انتظاركم

أصدرت ألوية الصدر بياناً ورد فيه: “قول وتحذير أول وأخير موجه لمن يمثل ليبيا بالحضور إلى بلاد الإمام الصدر وأرضه وشعبه والغدر ليس من شيمنا كما فعلتم بإمامنا لذا نحن بانتظاركم”.

وأضاف: “رئيس الجمهورية يدعو لقمة عربية في لبنان هذا شأنه أما نحن فلنا شأن آخر”.

It's not even the same flag as the one Imam Sadr disappeared under you idiots, that should have been a clue. It could be the animal instinct for this particular specie of climbing primates to go up poles, remove a flag and replace it with one of their own.
