Al-Mustaqbal Snaps Back at Jumblat, Rejects his Statement

Al-Mustaqbal Movement lashed out at Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat over his recent statements, considering that the Druze leader has “no right to make al-Mustaqbal a target for political sniper gunshots.”

“Al-Mustaqbal movement has been avoiding to engage in any debate that might target the origin of the historical ties with Jumblat,” a prominent official in al-Mustaqbal told al-Joumhouria newspaper on condition of anonymity.

However, the official said that it “seems that Jumblat wants the contrary... We'll play along from now on.”

On Wednesday, Jumblat said in an interview with al-Akhbar newspaper that al-Mustaqbal movement should realize that al-Qaida front group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) and al-Nusra front are not taking it's actions into their accounts.

The official noted that “Jumblat has the right to take any stance he wants... but it's not acceptable to make al-Mustaqbal a target for political gunshots.”
