Saniora: We'll Return to Dialogue once Nasrallah Agrees to Discussing Hizbullah's Arms

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Mustaqbal bloc head MP Fouad Saniora stressed on Friday that the March 14-led opposition had presented “serious and acceptable” proposals over the national dialogue “contrary to what the other camp is claiming.”

He said: “The March 14 camp will return to the national dialogue once Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announces his readiness to discuss incorporating his party's arms in the Lebanese state.”

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea had declared in an open letter to President Michel Suleiman on Thursday: “Those preventing us from returning to the all-party talks are the same powers that you are making us sit alongside at the dialogue table.”

Saniora reiterated the opposition's demand for the resignation of the government and the formation of a neutral salvation one “that can confront the current extraordinary reality in Lebanon.”

The rejection of this proposal is a sign of some sides' insistence on maintaining their unilateral approach to running the country, he remarked.

“The current government is that of Hizbullah and the Syrian regime. It is working on achieving the party's local and regional interests, as well as protecting the regime in Syria,” added the MP.

The March 14 camp had announced its boycott of government-related work, including the national dialogue, in light of the assassination of Internal Security Forces Intelligence Bureau head Brigadier General Wissam al-Hasan on October 19.

It blamed the Syrian regime of being behind the crime and the government of covering up for the criminals.

The Phalange Party announced earlier this week however that it would not boycott the upcoming national dialogue session, set for January 7, explaining that it would not want to "boycott" President Michel Suleiman who called for the talks.

Sayyed needs to sell-out/back-stab Iran and take all the gifted Iranian weapons and hand over to the LAF. He then should join forces and accept the terms of one army...one country! He should look to make Lebanon the envy of the Middle East and work towards peace, love and harmony between all Lebanese.

Wait.....I was dreaming. Damn! Once a terrorist....always a terrorist!

Look at these Arab collaborators (Kings and M14). They arm rebels fighting to overthrow the Syrian government (and the Libyan government), but not those resisting Israeli aggression. Why? Because they take orders from the Zionist American enemy and will not do anything to upset them. Now, they are demanding disarming the Lebanese Resistance to protect Israeli aggression. The Lebanese and Arab masses are not stupid, and their years are numbered.

Missing bigjohn 28 December 2012, 18:47

The "Fake Lebanese" are all of those in M14 (like FM, LF, Phalange) who have for decades a long record of killing fellow Lebanese, but they ALL have one thing in common in that THEY NEVER FIRED A SHOT at the ISRAELI OCCUPIERS. "you can resist Israel all you want"...Yes, That is like coming from the SLA!

Let's be realistic. Hizb TZ will not hand in their weapons because it's their only protection against all the murders they have committed.

Missing bigjohn 28 December 2012, 18:58

"Murders they (HA) have committed"? My SSNP neighbors in Koura can not wait until they get their hands on those Future movement killers behind the Halba massacre in 2006. Do you want a war between M14 and M8? Is that in Lebanon's interest?

Thumb LEBhasNOhope 28 December 2012, 20:16

What I want tiny Tim is a state where everyone abides by the law. Where people don't eliminate others just because they can. You can take you weak scare tactics and shove them. There will not be a civil war and your friends both Hizb TZ and ssnp will both be prosecuted for the murders they have committed. Go try and play that silly game with someone else.

This focus on HA weapons is counterproductive. We should be focusing on HA's red lines instead. No to disarming palestininans. No to controlling the port. No to having a light government without too much employees. No to SSNP in lebanon. etc...

This is why Aoun learned his lesson and sided with the Shabiha to avoid the car bomb.

I am a Shia who bankrupted the akhdar and the yabes. My name is Rafic Syria and I am Syria's best Rafic. I robbed the coffers by the amount of 60 billion USD before I was barbecued in 2005. Since then, my followers added to the bankruptcy the amount of 11 billion USD. Do you want a Coke or do you prefer a Pepsi? Thank you for your vast knowledge and intelligence. Lebanon's future rests on shoulders of bright people like you.

I'm extremely disappointed by Señora. How can he resume dialogue with an assassin? The man should at least do it for the fallen martyrs of Lebanon and sit with someone from Hizballah that doesn't have blood on his hands.

Missing cedars 29 December 2012, 03:39

We should fire Berri, elect a real speaker of the house to write new laws to make it a national crime for accepting Money, Arms from friends or non friendly countries to undermine the role of the state authorities and appoint yourself the protector of your town/street.
You really want to fight the Zionists, then go to Gaza for the real show down, otherwise disarm NOW simply because you share the Country with others that disagree with your ideology.

“The March 14 camp will return to the national dialogue once Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah announces his readiness to discuss incorporating his party's arms in the Lebanese state.”

The comments of a mad man ... He knows that discussions of this sort can not be implemented in the current state of affairs. For agreement on HA arms there would have to be trust and M14 has destroyed all trust with their inflammatory, hateful rhetoric.

As far as the HA arms it wasn't missiles that were used for assassinations. Maybe as a good faith gesture all the other militias and mobs should disarm first, including Hariri's militia ...

Thumb arzak-ya-libnan 29 December 2012, 12:48

then the other side might as well arm... since trust is destroyed.. why have only one side with weapons??

Missing peace 29 December 2012, 11:29

sinioura is right...
a dialogue means talk about everything not just about what M8 wants... otherwise it is a M8 monologue so no need to attend such a farce....

but of course M8 believe more in a party than in their own state which they prefer to weaken by the threat of hezbi arms rather than leave the NATIONAL army take care of the defense of the country and put hezbollah under the ORDERS of the army and not the other way round!!!!!!
