Fadlallah Hits Back at March 14 over Karam Release, Marouni Slams 'Treason Accusations'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The evening round on the second day of parliamentary debate on the government’s policies was rife with harsh criticism from the opposition and calls for better performance from the ruling camp, amid several verbal clashes over Hizbullah’s controversial arsenal of weapons.

MP Hassan Fadlallah, member of Hizbullah’s Loyalty to Resistance bloc, snapped back at the rival March 14 camp over accusations that his party had notably remained silent over the recent controversial release of Brig. Gen. Fayez Karam from prison, less than two years after he was convicted of collaborating with Israel.

“You are the last party entitled to talk about this issue,” Fadlallah said, accusing the March 14 camp of negligence in addressing the issue during its time in power.

“The Resistance’s stance on the judicial verdicts has always been general, seeing the problem in the nature of verdicts rather than in the individuals,” said Fadlallah.

The Hizbullah lawmaker stressed that his party’s arsenal of arms “protects all the Lebanese from Israel, even those criticizing it.”

Phalange bloc MP Elie Marouni hit back at Fadlallah, saying “we have been killed without retaliating, and had it not been for our resistance, there would not have remained any inch in this country for them to fight for.”

“If this rhetoric is aimed at accusing the other camp of treason and at pushing us to take up arms again, then we are ready,” Marouni added.

He stressed that “with this government, there is no political, social, environmental or food security,” accusing the government of disassociating itself from the needs of “the country and the citizens.”

For his part, MP Estephan Doueihi, member of Marada Movement’s Free Unified Lebanon bloc, said “we need a unifying rhetoric more than ever that immunizes Lebanon against the repercussions of the ongoing events” in the region.

The accusations launched by the opposition “contain a lot of injustice, as it is unacceptable to blame the government for the accumulations of the past,” Doueihi added.

Were the arms used in the rape of Beirut "protecting the Lebanese people"?

Put a tie on, shave your face, and shut up.

M8 led by Hizb are surely pushing the rest of the Lebanese to arm themselves to defend our lives, freedom and democracy.

Missing peace 18 April 2012, 21:28

if one party is allowed to have arms and the governing majority finds that normal, then they have to accept others to get as armed as hezb is... if a rule applies to one it should apply to all!

unfortunately that is the logic that the terrorist party hezb has pushed this country towards!

Can we also the same about the arms of the Syrian army ? "it is there to protect all Syrians including the tens of thousands it is kiling".
And why there is no Lebanese flag in the background in such a way to show that the resistance is subserviant to Lebanon and to serve Lebanon.

Missing peace 18 April 2012, 21:33

no FT! and that s what you don t want to understand!!

the country has not been ruled by M14 for 20 years! but by syria and a good number of your present friends too!!

so stop saying that all the pb come from M14 while M8 has the SAME responsability in everything!

as if all of a sudden no M8 members were ever in charge of a ministry! and you know perfectly well that all the decisions had to be approved by damascus and your friends were also good servants of the syrians! and you also know perfectly well that your leader AOUN said that syria was responsible of the huge debt of the country... or was he lying?...

You can rant all you want there Candle Thrower defending the scums of the world but one thing that we all know is that HA's lame lying statement "the party’s arsenal of arms “protects all the Lebanese from Israel, even those criticizing it.” is BS. Protecting Lebanese from Israel....LMOA! Israel my friend is the least of our worries. Lebanon's biggest worry is these low-life mobsters who have all of us living day-by-day on edge not knowing when they or any of their members can unilaterally break the law at will with no respect to the legitimacy of the Lebanese armed forces and law & order. They rob, kidnap, assassinate, threaten and bully anyone who dares stand up against their primitive ideologies. They beleive that they are above the law and have no one to answer to but to the monkey (saadin).

ft and his mates are unable to tell us convincingly why they hate the LF or anyone from 14 for that matter. The fact that LF were invlolved in a bloody war with the army is high on their excuse list. They conveniently do not question the direction their glorious leader has taken them in particularly when it has gone against everything he stood for during the war and in exile. It is a slap in the face of every Christian that we had a war between ourselves, let alone our martyrs by aoun doing a 360 degree backflip in his policies. yet they follow him blindly into the abis siding with the very point of view that he was hell bent on enforcing against his own kind. Now he tells us we need protection against israel, whilst before he insisted the army was sole protector. Why don't they ask thenselves this? and when did they find this overwhelming love of nasrallah and his goons? is it because the party they support now is in bed with them?

10 reasons to hate LF: (just 10 but herer hundreds)

6-illegal taxes (5wet)
7-techbi7 3al 7awejiz (sorry no translation for that)
8- Taef
9-initiating thousands of christian youth to drugs
10- illegal death penalties (Zaynoun)
11- Zahle cathedral bombing
12- DAny chamoun assasination
14- Jopseph akiki assasination

As for the post war list you have kindly taken the time to write for me, the only one with any substance is Jem3a 3azime.. I have said many times I am a LF supporter however unlike many others from either side I am not blindly following someone for the sake of it and can have my own views.

Missing forces 19 April 2012, 14:28

As for the rest of your poorly constructed post war list, you are kidding me,
1- becoming HArriri minions \ v hezb/syrian lapdog
2- cancellig good Friday (jem3a 3azime)- agree
3-Giving Harriri in 2009 elections 4/5 MP in Ashrafieh, 2 in Koura, 3 in Zahleh... - you mean allying with his political allies as aoun had done? whats your point?
4- teaming with the same Takfiris who burned Ashrafieh in Feb5 -= sure very credible agument here..
5- attacking the church (vatican, orthodox and Bkerkeh)against KSA ryal - again making his point of view , it's called democracy, he has never disrespected the office of bkirki just questioned the decisions and ended in ' we await bkirki t clarify it's position' = weak argument.
- so can you name anything aoun has done good since his return?

I agree most of these guys are dirty but isn't everyone? aouns politics are very simplistic that is why it scares me fools like yourselves blindly follow and try justifying his wrong decisions..

Again, all talk, no substance. Hizbulla would lose a battle of wits to my 2 year old. They keep repeating the same stuff over and over again hoping believe their lies. Their weapons only serve their own interests PERIOD, not the interests of the lebanese people. If they wanted to serve the lebanese people, then they would become a part of the lebanese state, not a separate entity.

The 5 rafic hariri governments, the hoss and karami governments legalized hezbollah's weapons from 1922-2005.

Hariri/Saniora, Jumblatt and the feb14 frata(loose change) Christians allied with Amal and Hezbollah in the 2005 elections. They not only legalized Hezbollah's weapons but also gave them Ministers for the first time in history.

The two saniora government, hariri government and mikati government all legalized the weapons.

So shut and stop contradicting yourselves.

The yellow flag has a weapon in it, our flag has a cedar instead, without weapons there is no flag, no Iranian money+weapons support, and back to planting hashish as of 40yrs ago.
What happens if you do not vote for the Baath party in Syria? you'll find yourself exiled in Paris or your family will be asked to publicize your suicide, a similar scenario is being applied in Lebanon via assassinations so that the survivals run the Country. Israel destroys from the air our powergrids and HA destroys the powergrids from the ground by opting out from paying their utility consumption, how is that being supportive to the country and state?

Thumb kesrweneh 19 April 2012, 13:01

funny how the M14 never talks about foreign weapons in Lebanon: palestinina weapons, Takfiri weapons.... as long as the palestinians who started the war in 1975 are armed it's OBLIGATORY to have armed Hizballah, then if those people surrender their weapons lebanese should find a way to integrate Hizballah wtihin the Army without hindering it's efficiency in resisrting Israel.

Missing forces 19 April 2012, 14:44

wrong we talk about them all the time, and they should all be disarmed. Why would this benefit us to have them armed? Do you REALLY believe once the palestinians are disarmed, hezb will integrate anything into the army? really really? and the resisting Israel statement is hilarious. The official line is that hezb have weapons to defend lebanese soverinty and liberate palestine. Why would they want the palestines dissarmed? as for the defending our soverinty stop provocking Israel in the name of Palestine. find a way, sure lets make hassouny president and give him supreme authority over everything, they will not give up their weapons..

keserweneh, are you stupid? Our war waw not started by anyone but our own secterianism hence why we have had civil wars in lebanon for ages long before 1975. If you want to blame the 1975 war on someone then blame it on maronites (if you want to go down that line) bcuz at that time they kept attacking muslims because they feared they would turn in to a majority especially with the palestinian refugees present so they naturalized over 50 000 palestinian christians while the palestinian muslims were seen as a demography threat and thus they became a target for various maronite leaders and armed groups before officially starting the war by comitting a massacre on a bus. Lets stop blaming others for everything and grow up.

"United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701 is a resolution that was intended to resolve the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict.

It was unanimously approved by the United Nations Security Council on 11 August 2006. The Lebanese cabinet, which includes two members of Hezbollah, unanimously approved the resolution on 12 August 2006.
Cabinet voted 24-0 in favor of the resolution. The resolution calls for:[1]

Full cessation of hostilities (OP1)

A long term solution based on (OP8)

You know Jumblatt and Harari do not want majority representation because they would lose more power. This is because March 14 even with Jumblat does not have a majority. How is this Dream World Lebanese government,the Dream favored by the majority on this thread, even if they all wear nice silk ties, How is this Dream World government going to be more effective than present one or the last one? March 8 is not just Hezbollah. They rightly believe Israel is a threat and likely to attack and kill Lebanese people at any moment. They are correct. This does not seem to factor into the thinking of the majority of you. WHY?

Default-user-icon John Williams (Guest) 21 April 2012, 13:45

anonymetexasua.more dream world thinking. Yeah. it's suppose to be like that except the West won't let your Army have weapons that could be effective against israel and that won't change. Your "Army" is a police force for quelling riots and controlling the refugee camps. Israel violates your sovereignty daily. Hezbollah and any people have the right to use whatever means to defend themselves against such firepower.The leading policians in March 14 want Israel to destroy Hezbollah. Kill your fellow citizens, apparently you do also. Hezbollah's primary objective is as a resistance and social services network. That thug sectarian milita is disciplined and their leader is intelligent.They serve Iran because it suits them to do so but they live and breathe in Lebanon. Just llike you.
