Qaouq Says New Govt. Formation a 'Slap' to U.S. Administration


A senior Hizbullah official announced Sunday that the formation of a new government in Lebanon delivered a “slap” to the U.S. administration.

“The government’s formation was a slap to (U.S. President Donald) Trump, (Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo, (State Department Assistant Secretary David) Schenker and all the men of the U.S. administration, who bet on chaos, the besiegement of the resistance and the subjugation of the Lebanese,” Hizbullah central council member Sheikh Nabil Qaouq said.

“They were betting that the Lebanese would not be able to form a government except through U.S. dictations, desires and conditions, but a government was formed with a 100 percent Lebanese will to represent a real chance to rescue the country from collapse,” Qaouq added, noting that “the start has been encouraging and positive domestically and externally.”

Reiterating that the new government is “a government for work and rescue, not confrontation,” the Hizbullah official said it will seek to “rescue what’s left of the state institutions, halt the collapse and confront the corrupts.”

“Hizbullah will be at the forefront of its supporters, but at the same time, it will be at the forefront of those who monitor its performance,” Qaouq pledged.

wait, isn't that what aoun said--if you don't like it, emigrate?

cut from the same cloth. it would be quicker for you to go to iran since your orders come from there and there only.

It's not him that loves Europe Canada and America. It is you the shias. From all the shia expats how many immigrated to Iran versus those who immigrated to the USA/Canada/Europe? Half the shias who immigrate go to Detroit Michigan and the other half live and work in the Sunni Gulf states. The same Sunnis that your non-religion wants to exterminate. So, please STFU and go take a shower coz your stench is overwhelming.

Did those two dead shia iranian terrorists in your avatar go to Syria to live with anyone?

Shia people are willing to live with anyone. But if you want to be Americas and Israel's allies, then you can go to the Zionist West and stay there.

this is why iran basically eradicated all the other sects in iran after the revolution. nice try with bias and racism.

The word ‘Shia’ can’t be followed by the word ‘people’.... it isn’t English/ French / Arabic / Hebrew / Farsi .
