Bahia Hariri: We Don't Want the Resistance Brigades in Sidon

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Sidon MP Bahia Hariri on Tuesday said the southern port city rejects “the presence of the Resistance Brigades” -- a group affiliated with Hizbullah.

"We do not want the presence of the Resistance Brigades in Sidon, period,” Hariri stressed in various interviews reported by the state-run National News Agency.

She explained: “We are not against anyone and Hizbullah's weapons are debatable on the national level, but the Resistance Brigades has no place in the city.”

"We all resist Israel but we will not allow demarcation lines between the people.”

The al-Mustaqbal MP said Sidon is open to people of all religious factions: “The city welcomes Sunnis, Shiites, Christians, Palestinians and Syrians. This is the view of the people I represent and I know it is the opinion of everyone who has affections towards Sidon.”

Hariri described the latest clashes in the city as a “dangerous thing.”

"If we do not know how to deal with people, things will go back to being scattered,” she warned.

“We quickly want a security plan that reassures people. We want the army to be at a single distance from everyone.”

Hariri continued: “We want to be protected by the state and the army to take control of our security. We do not want any other kind of security.”

"I will strive to make this happen this through my official post.”

At least 16 soldiers were killed and 50 were wounded in the clashes with the armed supporters of Salafist cleric Sheikh Ahmed al-Asir in Sidon in the past two days.

More than 20 of al-Asir's supporters were killed, according to a security official.

Dozens of them were also arrested, but there was no sign of the cleric.

Absolutely right benzona! Weren't we all sold on the fact that HA's role was a 'resistance' against Israel? So get the hell off the street and let the army do their job! No one asked for your help nor do we recognize you lying scum Persian scums!

This woman is very dignified and rational. As a matter of fact, all harrrir clan are dignified and loyal to Lebanon. i am not a Sunni (Christian) and have respect for anyone who puts Lebanon first. harriri family is one of the best in terms of putting Lebanon first. I am very disappointed from Aoun. he's lost his mind.

hrm...she's not right about the brigades.. they need to be CONVERTED into army trained people. Keep converting until everyone is part of the army. Job done. idiots.From a foreigner.

Either way , in the bigger picture he is an enemy of Hezbollah and if left alone would grow versus time, anyone who believe the army is not infiltrated should have their head examined. Lebanese are funny, this army is from Lebanon not Mars and suffers the same illnesses lol, the army disintegrated in the 70s and couple more incidents like these and it will break apart into sects. The army did the dirty work of Hezbollah in Sidon, the rest is details

Thumb shoo-yaba 25 June 2013, 21:50

HA probably told the Army either deal with him or we will take over, so they were pretty much black mailed to do their dirty work. Either way, they did the dirty work, and I do agree that Assir is an idiot

zahle_nights, according to the Iranian cheerleaders the rebels fighting Assad are Zombies and eat human flesh at every meal... so obviously the Great Protector Nasrallah from the safety and comfort of his underground bunker, is sending his Saintly thugs to save the Lebanese before they are consumed.

I may have 3 citizenships but I was born in Beirut as well. you can tell this to your Chabiha friends controlling the Rafic Hariri International Airport so they can silence me next time I land there!!!!

Thumb benzona 26 June 2013, 01:06

Last time I checked which was a few months ago, it was called Rafic Hariri International Airport. There are loud speakers in arabic and english confirming this when you head towards the archaic customs.

I may have a few jews left in my family, they never stepped in Israel and never were interested on doing it. your denigration is meaningless.

Thumb benzona 26 June 2013, 00:20

sadly, I hear the same here about 'turkish religion' or 'moroccan religion'....

most of the people have little culture. it isn't their fault, it's the will the governments. enlightened people are a threat.

benzona,you pederas what is hard to understand? you spend all your time here flopping your gumms without bothering to research !according to the prophet muhammad A.S he said this, at the end of times there will be 73 sects of islam.but only one will see heaven.the jews are the chosen people according to them,according to the salafi wahhabi doctrine they are the chosen one ,the same idiology,diffrent color.real chrstians and real moslems believe in the return of jesus and almahdi to the city of damascus and they will appear togther inside the saint john the babtist church,known as algame3 al umaoui .damascus will not fall,jerusalem will.

We also do not want citizens undermining the state authority by not paying for Electricity while others pay as well as tax for their property, we do not want canister gas tanks every few months to explode because two citizens are fighting over stealing the state properties such as building illegally on the airport road. Those who beat the state money collectors and local security are in the same boat as 3assir since the rules apply on ALL.

Bahiya is disgusting. the world knows she's behind all these salafists. how in the world didnt the army arrest her and her filthy supporters yet. God bless Oussama Saad the real Sidonist, how many years do we have to wait until order is restored and moderate Sunnis come back to play their usual role. Army heros just get rid of all Salafists Please!

I am absolutely disgusted with the lot of you. Instead of trying to get together to establish a free, democratic and independent Republic of Lebanon, you are all at each others throats. One of these days unfortunately the pot is going to boil over and the previous Civil War is going to look like a childs game.
Wake up Lebanon before it is too late.
