GCC Condemns Terrorist Bombings, Urges Hizbullah 'Militias' to Pull Out of Syriaإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
The Gulf Cooperation Council condemned on Wednesday the latest bombings that shook Lebanon and called on Hizbullah's “militias” to withdraw from war-ravaged Syria.
The six Arab monarchies of the Gulf said in a statement at the end of a two-day summit in Kuwait City that they “condemned the terrorist bombings that left innocent casualties in Lebanon.”
Lebanon has been rocked with a series of bombings, mainly in the Hizbullah strongholds of Beirut's southern suburbs and the eastern Bekaa Valley.
The latest bombings were suicide attacks targeting the Iranian Embassy in November.
Two blasts have also targeted Sunni mosques in the northern city of Tripoli.
The Council urged all Lebanese parties to put their nation's interest above any other interest.
The statement called for the “swift” formation of a new government to preserve the Lebanese entity and “steer it clear of the repercussions of the Syrian crisis.”
Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam has been unable to form his cabinet over the conditions and counter conditions set by the rival March 8 and 14 camps.
He was appointed in April but has blamed the two alliances for his failure to come up with a line-up.
The GCC closing statement also called for “the withdrawal of Hizbullah militias from Syria.”
Hizbullah is openly fighting in Syria alongside troops loyal to President Bashar Assad, who is facing rebels seeking to topple his regime.
Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah vowed last month to keep his forces in Syria.
"We have said on several occasions that the presence of our soldiers on Syrian soil is to defend... Syria, which supports the resistance" against Israel, Nasrallah said.
"So long as that reason exists, our presence there is justified,” he added.
LOL ... The GCC countries and their wealthy citizens are by far the largest patrons of violence, especially car bombs and suicide attacks in the world ...
No comment by the GCC from their financed foreign militias in Syria?
Chechen, Iraqi, Lebanese, Libyan etc salafist, al qiada terrorists?
Peace in Syria. May all foreigners leave that country!
Nobody can proof anything for GCC, But HA it is well proofed that he uses terror. I lived in Saudia for 2 y, many have lived there, and I know it is a country with law and transparency.
these are agreed terms between the world and iran.
if they do not abide by these terms soon, the deal is off.
bye bye hzbushaitan :)
Guess again geha. The US, EU, Russia and many other countries all agree on one important point; Syria must not become a terrorist state.
That rules out the GCC victory in Syria because their proxies there are the very terrorists these other countries cannot abide ...
lol. usually if you take the exact opposite of what he says it's pretty accurate.
C'mon don't offend geha, I'm afraid he will stop posting.. Imagine all the entertainment we will miss out on?
Shouldn't the Gulf Cooperation Council with Israel start by urging the filthy Saudis to pull out of Bahrain first? Oh, are they waiting for urgings from our good-for-nothing president-by-parachute?
In the meantime, Assad bombs Tripoli, his agents in Lebanon are caught. And Hezbollah / Iran fail to condemn the Assad regime. Quite the contrary, they continue to fight by his side when he goes on sending bombs to Lebanon left and right. Aounies, who's supporters were butchered, massacred and beaten by Assad forces also fail to condemn Assad for the bombings...
On another note, people like Southern fails to recognize Hezbollah as an extremist / jihadist / terrorist organistion and attack other organisations for being extremists and jihadist terrorists.
It's like a robber complaining of getting robbed.
And people like Southern like to call others "warmongers" when War is the only thing Hezbollah every achieved in Lebanon. They have brought nothing to the country other than war and destruction. Nothing constructive that is ...
Since the end of the Civil War, all wars and "mini wars" in Lebanon are a direct result of HA MISTAKES.
Can you deny that ?
Regarding the topic of thieves, you have no right to talk about this topic. Your Syrian patrons have robbed our country blindly for decades making Hariri look like a beggar. Your Hezbollah have stollen our liberties and freedom of movement. They have stollen our economic potential... don't lecture others about thieves. Stealing a name you say ... what is it to you anyway ?
@Roar : you're right, you have every right to make a fool of yourself.
Regarding the Syrians, "you believe i supported them" ? I always hated and attacked the Assad Regime before and after the war and their withdrawal from Lebanon.
Unlike the likes of you, Aoun, and Jumblat, I have integrity. I don't switch points of views as the wind changes directions.
You really are an idiot to accuse me of such when you know nothing but crap about me it seems.
@Purr ... bet what you want. Seems you enjoy losing.
I don't take orders from irrelevant trolls. If you posted as many arguments as you struggle to insult me, maybe we could have a debate.
You can call me a thief, a liar, ask me to play with dolls, then only thing true that comes out of this is that you're an idiot :)
I don't even know why I bother with you. At least Southern, FT and Mowaten stick to a line of reasoning while you are totally irrelevant! 0 integrity, 0 relevance and 0 arguments...
I don't define which "level" you're at. Who am I to judge you ...
You're doing this yourself... and you keep digging lower and lower, irrelevant comment after irrelevant comment.
If I'm a thief, so are you ... you steal time, attention, pixels on our screens and kilobytes of data on our already slow connections (thank you Sehnaoui).
And for what ? IRRELEVANCE !
@Purr : typical response from someone with nothing to say :)
Again, stop shifting the conversation to matters that do not even concern you. Unless you're FT :)
FT is mature enough to fight his own fights and doesn't need little irrelevant pricks taking his defence with irrelevant comments...
And to put an end once and for all to this "thief" issue :
- Unless you can show that the name FlameCatcher or FlameThrower is a registered or copyrighted brand.
- Unless you can explain the mind bending confusion i'm causing YOU because you're incapable of understanding the difference between "catching" and "throwing"
- Unless you can demonstrate people confuse me for FlameThrower and that my name is not a Parody but used to usurp an identity
Unless you can do all of the above, think 10 times about what you're going to say and then think again about how your comments will hit you back in the face !
reality is becoming sectarian ft, coz a iranian manipulation of shias in iran, syria and iraq. I didn't ask those hyenas to implement wilayat faqih.
the doing sectarian acts are the sectarians.
If it wasn't for Hezbollah there would be no Lebanon, all you Sunnis with no pride or backbone wouldn't stand up to Israel, so they had to.
Like the cooking that is leading the "ASSad" regime to fall every Wednesday of every week, a fall that seems to be unstoppable? gabbaguybo, have you tried predicting the past? I'm sure you'll have better luck doing that.
