Aoun: The Danger on Lebanon is Great and al-Qaida is One Step Away

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun warned on Saturday against the danger on Lebanon that could result from Syria's conflict, explaining that al-Qaida's presence would soon be felt in the country.

“Al-Qaida is one step away from being present in Lebanon, and once here, it will announce an (Islamic) Emirate in the north,” Aoun said in front of a delegation of students who won the Antonine University elections.

The FPM leader added: “What is happening in Syria now is very dangerous and threatens our existence, especially since the revolutionaries are radicals”.

Aoun called on the students to be aware of the regional changes and conflicts that could threaten Lebanon's stability.

“They want to make us focus our attention on the electoral law but we should not forget where the real danger is,” Aoun explained.

“The number of Palestinians in Lebanon is nearing 1 million,” Aoun said commenting on the arrival of refugees from Syria through the border, expressing that this is a “real danger from which our attention should not be deviated”.

“Nations supporting the revolutionaries in Syria with money and arms are obliging Palestinians to flee the war-torn country,” the FPM leader said, questioning why these regimes do not “take responsibility of the refugees instead of blaming us and putting the entire burden on Lebanon".

An air strike on the Yarmuk Palestinian refugee camp in Syria have caused the eruption of Clashes between the pro-regime Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command against rebel fighters, some of them also Palestinians, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Around 10,000 Palestinians had fled from Syria to Lebanon and since the latest violence another 3,000 had crossed the border or were in the process of crossing, UNRWA deputy chief of staff Lisa Gilliam.

“Some parties in the country are encouraging people to go fight in Syria and this might have catastrophic results on Lebanon,” Aoun noted.

“Al-Qaida and other extremist organizations are found in Syria not Lebanon, thus beware of what comes from outside and is supported internally,” he ended.

Auon supports hizbocrap which runs "morabba3at amniye" across Lebanon so it's completely hypocritical of him to criticize "terrorists"....

@ mohammad_ca

LOL ... just because Aoun supports HA does not mean he doesn't have a point about what is happening in Syria ...

As do most you equate the situation as being two sided ... it is not. The scenario is very complex and knee jerk condemnation is dangerous.

Missing mohammad_ca 24 December 2012, 02:10

and a kneejerk condemnation of the revolution is also very dangerous.

Dear God was it not last month that he was saying that M14 did not want a new electoral law and were trying to keep the 1960 law? Now they are doing it to divert attention? Still can't believe people buy his b.s.
I do agree with him about not sending LEBANESE to go fight in Syria and that includes his buddies hizballah TZ which he conveniently overlooks! What a major hypocrite.

apparently, he isn't a major hypocrite, he's a general hypocrite.

"M14 are just as treacherous by hating on your every word"

stating facts is now treacherous? or treason for you aoun lover is to be against M8 LOL!

was aoun a traitor when he kept saying that hezbollah is a terrorist group?
was he a traitor when he called for years the ousting of the assad family?
was he a traitor when he said that only syrians are responsible for the corruption system they set in lebanon to better control it?
was he a traitor when he said that syirans stole the majority of lebanese money?

oh! kiserwanimoughadram is right when he says he sold his dignity: is he still saying the same things? NO because he sold himself to the highest bidder....

If he would only talk to his SIL and get the electricity situation going in the right direction, people wouldn't be mocking him as much...

of course, he should probably have someone tell him what he said 10 years ago first so he doesn't sound like he completely sold out to the highest bidder, ie HA.

Aoun carries so much hatred against his opponents which makes him blind against what is right or wrong. There is so much defiance among the Lebanese that Aoun's followers will accept any thing he says. Syria and HA take advantage of him as he weakening the Christians who are the vital blood of this country and who contribute significantly in the rise and strength of this country, some thing that both Syria and HA are against.
