Netanyahu: Hizbullah Controls Lebanon Govt. and We’ll Foil Any Aggression

W460

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Hizbullah is “in control of the Lebanese government,” three days after a new cabinet was formed in Beirut after nine months of deadlock.

“This means that Iran is controlling the Lebanese government,” Netanyahu stated in a meeting with a delegation comprised of foreign envoys to the U.N.

“Iran is seeking to occupy the Middle East, to destroy Israel and to seize other large parts of the world,” the Israeli premier warned, vowing that Israel “will foil any aggression coming from Lebanon, Syria or Iran itself.”

Hizbullah has three ministerial portfolios in the new government – health, sport and youth, and a state minister for parliament affairs.

The party and its allies, including President Michel Aoun and his Free Patriotic Movement, control 18 out of 30 seats in the new government.

Netanyahu: Hizbullah Controls Lebanon Government

Does anybody disagree with him?

Hezbollah not only controls the Lebanese government, but also the parliament, the army, and the presidency.

Thumb thepatriot 03 February 2019, 17:20

The Port, the Airport, and Administrations as well...

Israel succeeded in destroying Lebanons most important infrastructure in 2006, but they thought it would weaken Hezbollah or even annihilate it. It only seems to have made Hezbollah stronger, just as in Syria you all thought Hezbollah days are numbered, yet Israeli commanders said that nobody have battle veterancy like Hezbollah have now.

Thumb Mystic 03 February 2019, 17:32

Which is why Israel have been reluctant to attack Lebanon directly, yes they have attacked in Syria, but Syria is already rubble and there isn't much left for the Jews to destroy.

Thumb thepatriot 04 February 2019, 12:52

Mastika... idiot! Almost none of the infrastructures were destroyed in the 2006 war. Mainly Dahie was flat down as well as the villages used by your cowards to launch missiles.
In the Syrian war, Ebola lost over 1000 veterans, and almost 2000 yourg idiots who lost their lives for Bashar el Assad... Honestly... nothing to be proud of...

"Mystic
The LAF and Hezbollah are one."

Thumb cedar 03 February 2019, 19:53

The Lebanese Government and Army are NOT controlled by Hezbollah.

They are influenced strategically, yes, but not controlled.

Israel using words like 'controlled' is precursor for a war.

Israel, its Zionist controlled government, and the Jewish religion will do anything to undermine and destroy Christians , they started with killing Jesus Christ lets not forget these peoples true intentions. They consider Christians filth even more than muslims.

Anything they say about Hezbollah is really for the purposes to get to and destroy the Christians.

Cedar, firstly, if you would bother to read, you will find that it was the Romans and not the Jews who killed Jesus.
Secondly, which is the only country in the Middle East where the number of Christians is increasing all the time. You guessed right, Israel. So how on earth can you say that they are destroying Christians.
Your claim that they consider Christians filth even more than Muslims is so far from the truth that I will not even try to give examples. By the way how many Churches have been destroyed in Israel - none, how many synagogues have been destroyed in the Arab States - hundreds. So I would advise you to get your facts straight.

What are you guys bickering about.... this Jewishphobia is despicable.

Each cross mentions Iesvs Nazarenvs, Rex Ivdæorvm, Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.

And you Mystic Mite, your Shia religion was founded by a Yemenite Jewish convert Abdallah ibn Saba.

Finally real Muslims can’t despise jews as the prophet Muhammad taught us to forgive wrongdoers even if they’re Jews like his neighbor lady who poisoned him which ultimately killed him. Jesus has pretty much the same message, so only heretics would not listen to them.

@Cedar

Your take on history is quite entertaining. Go back to school and read a few books.

Thumb cedar 04 February 2019, 02:58

Liberty, I write the books. The information i have disclosed are in official church documentation that was approved and authorised as factual.

You sir are brainwashed.

Thumb warrior 04 February 2019, 04:29

Sure and these books are in your dahieh church? What was Nazi Germany? Was it not Christian? Have you read about the holocaust? Who committed those massacres against the jews?

Thumb s.o.s 04 February 2019, 00:05

Anybody is still better than nobody !

Thumb cedar 04 February 2019, 06:33

Warrior, what on earth are you talking about, you sound so rasist and ill informed.

Hitler committed the holocaust against the jews obviously. What is your point? What has that got to do with anything?

The turks committed a holocaust on the Christians of Lebanon killing iver a million of them.... we are not talking about mass murders here so why did u bring hitler up out of no where thats crazy. (Hitler was no christian btw, just because you have/born with a religious title does not mean you are a proper follower of it)

You are confused and brainwashed also.

Thumb justin 04 February 2019, 07:39

You said:"the Jewish religion will do anything to undermine and destroy Christians".

Where did you get that from? Have you read the Old Testament? You are mixing between politics and religion. Even Jewish politics does not remotely point to anything close to what you are saying.

Btw, Nazi Germany was Christian indeed. You cannot accuse a whole religion of wanting to destroy another religion!

Thumb warrior 04 February 2019, 07:19

"cedar:
you sound so rasist and ill informed."

How does this sound:

"the Jewish religion will do anything to undermine and destroy Christians , they started with killing Jesus Christ lets not forget these peoples true intentions. They consider Christians filth even more than muslims."

The only documented mass murders committed against the Jews were by Christians. So, stfu and stop making a fool out of yourself.

Thumb cedar 04 February 2019, 11:38

Justin and Warrior: As i stated earlier just because someone is born a Cheistian, Muslim or Jew does not mean they are in fact one. What a person truly is depends on their actions.

Hitler was not a Christan based on his actions, this is undoubtedly fact.

But again, yes i say any religion that advocates violence is evil. Christianity does not do so per its formal rules, judaism and islam do however.

Thumb janoubi 04 February 2019, 13:11

but you are the one who accused the Jewish religion of wanting to destroy Christians!:)

Thumb cedar 04 February 2019, 19:16

Yes they do. All Abrahamic semetic religions are ultinately against Christianity because Christanity redefines them.

Missing ysurais 04 February 2019, 12:05

@ cedar- pls read well z Quran as it does NOT preach evil or violence at all, unless u are listening to some stupid sadic people telling u otherwise and translating as they please.
In fact the Quran tells u that God / Allah sent u religion from Judaism, Christianity and then Islam for people to have peace within themselves and others and follow God's well of love and peace...

Thumb cedar 04 February 2019, 19:17

There are many parts of the Quran that advocate violence dont be a fool.

Thumb thepatriot 04 February 2019, 12:36

@cedar... you are the most ignorant person here. And your words are childish and simple minded. All books of religions contain violent words, and sentences. They all are subject to interpretations. They all also contain messages of love and peace. It is men who failed religion, not religion that failed men.

Thumb cedar 04 February 2019, 19:20

I disagree. Yes books contain words. However the new testament does not promote or advocate violence - jesus direct comandment is "Love one another as i have Loved you" - Jesus has never advocated Violence and he came and changed the understanding and interpretation of the old testament thus making the old way of thinking with violence unacceptable and null and void. Islam and Judaism use the old parts that Jesus re defined thus making the Judaic and Islamic interpretation of old testament stuff and the basis of their eye for an eye mentality wrong.
