Report: Hizbullah Won't Press Aoun, Nasrallah’s Proposal Unfeasible


Hizbullah does not intend to press President Michel Aoun over the stalled new government and Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s proposal for resolving the crisis is unfeasible, Arab and foreign diplomatic sources said.

“Hizbullah is appeasing President Aoun to the max, not only to preserve their strategic alliance, but also to delay the government’s formation for considerations related to enabling Iran to hold cards in the region,” the sources told Saudi Arabia’s Asharq al-Awsat newspaper in remarks published Sunday.

Hizbullah also fears that pressuring Aoun might give the president the impression that such pressure might also apply to the presidential race and that it could be a signal that the party will not endorse Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil’s nomination, the sources added.

The sources also noted that the formation of a new government “might create the conditions for stopping the financial and economic collapse,” warning that “Aoun’s insistence on absolving himself will take the country to a major popular explosion that might spiral out of control.”

“This explosion must be fended off as soon as possible,” the sources advised.

Hizbullah Won't Press Aoun until Iran commands them to Press Aoun.

Many observers already know the obvious but other play blind. The Shia Crescent Iran criminal regime is creating in the Middle East and Nasrallah proud off, is actually the poisened crescent. Every country Iran Revolutionary Guards and Hizbollah touched has been transformed into a miserable failed state controlled by Basij’s arms and intimidation, an oppressive hopeless system where democracy and freedom never shine. If rockets and belligerence brought progress and respect, North Korea would be the golden nation. Rockets only lead to one place, a Faustian deal with the devil that cannot be broken without losing your soul and morals. Still nowhere is this poisonous crescent more fatal than in the failed state of Iran. Sadly the Basij have poisoned a wonderful country with a glorious history and culture. How sad for a group of criminals in Iran and Lebanon to desecrate Shia heritage
