Al-Asir Lashes out at Hizbullah over 'Hegemony' of Arms

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Salafist cleric Sheikh Ahmed al-Asir slammed on Sunday what he called Hizbullah's “hegemony” in Lebanon through the force of weapons.

“Some people are intentionally trying to create hegemony in Lebanon through their arms,” al-Asir told his supporters during a rally held in the southern city of Sidon.

“No matter how hard Nasrallah's party tries, we will not change our convictions,” said the cleric whose supporters clashed with Hizbullah gunmen last month, leaving three people dead.

The gunfight erupted following a dispute on Hizbullah posters in the city.

Al-Asir accused Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah of killing ex-Premier Rafik Hariri.

He also said the Army Intelligence was carrying out sectarian investigations.

“We want to live in peace- Sunnis and Shiites, Muslims and Christians,” al-Asir said.

The cleric made his speech after his supporters marched in Sidon's streets, raising black flags and chanting anti-Nasrallah slogans.

The protesters vowed to avenge the death of the three people, including two of Asir’s bodyguards.

The march took place amid heavy security measures taken by the Army and security forces.

It came after several meetings that Interior Minister Marwan Charbel held with top security officials in the city to prevent any unrest.

Charbel earlier told Voice of Lebanon radio (93,3) that the security forces will do their best to preserve security in Sidon and keep things under control.

Rudes you have to take care where you place your shit in order to have clean toilet. But I think you are quite used to miss your target while being on toilet.

so he is against Hizbullah possession of Arms but he wanted to make armed brigade in Saida and he postponed it due to uncertain reasons claiming it was because of the situation. its funny how some people believe him and go with his contradictions. and what is funnier is that we will never be a country because the only successful leaders are clerics and racist figures financed by some islamic country. I think they should kill him soon because if he really cares about a country he must not only postpone his creation of armed brigades but at this moment postpone his stupid manifestations and racist speeches untill at least the Syrian crisis would be solved and we would have a clear stable nation.
I don't know how with all this contradiction from all sides from Hizbullah to Assir people havent funded a huge movement to exclude these racist organisation from this society.
anyway good luck for the Army today and the Internal security forces and hope they will do a great job.

Yeah she is shia and he doesnt like them. Perhaps he saw the filthy behaviour of his mothers shia relatives and developed a disliking of shias which kept growing as shias kept taking more and more power and getting away with crimes. And now he finally decided to stand up against the liar shias. I am not a fan but it was only a matter of time before someone did.
