Rifi Vows to Resist May 7's 'Destructive Path,' Says Adventures Will Fire Back

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi stated on Tuesday that the adventures of those who “violated the state's dignity” on May 7, 2008 will fire back at them, vowing to continue “resisting this destructive path.”

Rifi commented on the infamous May 7 events on the eve of their sixth anniversary in a released statement, describing the day as one of the darkest in Lebanon's modern history.

On that day “an armed group violated the state's integrity, its institutions and its prestige and terrified the Lebanese, killing them in Beirut and Mount Lebanon in a dull show of force,” he said in the statement.

"But these adventures no matter how much gains they secured for those behind them at that time, they will fire back at them,” he declared.

"And we assure that we will continue resisting this destructive path that has drowned Lebanon and Syria, made them submissive to a regional project, and did not pay attention to the interest of Lebanon and of the Lebanese,” he added.

"We will resist this path until we reach a state of law and of institutions, who are alone capable of protecting all the Lebanese.”

Rifi reminded Iranian Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi of a statement he made, and in which he said the power of his country “could expand to reach the Mediterranean, and that Iranian defense line have arrived in southern Lebanon.”

"This memory is a coup that Lebanon is still suffering from its consequences until today, in its security and in its stability,” the Justice Minister expressed.

On May 7, 2008, clashes in Beirut and Mount Lebanon erupted that year when gunmen belonging to Hizbullah and its allies swept through the capital's neighborhoods after the government of Fouad Saniora decided to dismantle the group's telecom network and sack airport security chief Brig. Gen. Wafiq Shqeir.

This so called "Justice Minister." Has not seen the end of May 7th. 2008, the more the Saudi Rifi come up with empty threats, and his Internal Salafi Forces, the better.

the government of Fouad Saniora decided to dismantle the group's telecom network and sack airport security chief Brig. Gen. Wafiq Shqeir.

I would of done the same and wiped out Saniora and his salafist Islamists once and for all...and sacked Rifi for his support and empathy towards Fundamentalist fools backed by Saudi Arabia and Zionist Intelligence services.

Many houses got hit on may 7, including my house and some of my families, was that an honorable act by the so called party of god ?
2 of my good friends, Students of LAU at the time, living in the nearby dorms, were shot dead by pro m8 gunmen in a brutal way, what do we consider these crimes ?
In Ras Beirut, pro m8 gunmen, shot dead, a 15 year old boy, buying from the mini market, i lived in the area at the time, everybody knew him, he was a brevet student. who's responsible for his death ?
and the list goes on... i mentioned these in particular, because, innocent people were targeted, and the best word i can come up with is Terrorism...

The people of Beirut were brutally terrorized on may 7, and notice they did not Invade any popular area, rather they invaded areas where appartment are worth between 700 000 $ to 1 mil +, so in other words, they targeted a people, who they knew, would not show any resistance, or else they would have tried with popular places like Tarik al Jadideh, and we all know what the outcome wouldve been.
