Shaker Residing in Ain el-Hilweh, Says Relations with Asir Cut

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Singer turned fugitive Islamist Fadel Shaker stressed on Saturday that his ties with Salafist cleric Sheikh Ahmed Asir has ended after the 2013 Abra clashes.

“I will not hand my self over to the judiciary,” Shaker said in comments to al-Fajr radio station, denying that he assaulted the military during the clashes with the army in the southern town of Abra, near the city of Sidon.

Shaker had fled justice more than a year ago following bloody incidents that erupted in June 2013 in Abra, between the army and supporters of al-Asir.

Sidon’s clashes were the most intense bouts of violence in Lebanon linked to the conflict in Syria, and have resulted in the death of at least 16 troops.

Al-Asir, is still on the run.

Shaker rejected any negotiations to enhance his situation, revealing that he is currently residing the southern Ain el-Hilweh Palestinian refugee camp.

He considered that there's no “Lebanese authority in Lebanon because of the control imposed by Hizbuallah and Iran.”

Shaker also denied that his son Mohammed will become a singer, describing the entertainment field as “trash.”

Now in his mid-forties, Shaker was born to a Palestinian mother and Lebanese father in the country's biggest Palestinian refugee camp, Ain el-Hilweh.

Shaker became the best-known face of Asir's small movement of openly sectarian Sunni radicals and praised the cleric as "the lion of the Sunnis".

Judicial authorities have issued a detention order for Asir and 123 of his supporters, including Shaker, whose brother was killed in clashes with the army in Sidon last year.

There's no “Lebanese authority in Lebanon because of the control imposed by Hizbullah and Iran.”

He said everything in one sentence.

Everything you and your Wahhabi masters want to hear, that is.

Thumb lubnani.masi7i 22 November 2014, 18:18

everything you and your iranian khamaneist masters don't want to hear, that is.

what a cheap excuse.. shaker thinks he can evade justice by crying wolf.

where he said everything is when he described "the entertainment field as “trash.”"
the entertainment field is where he came from, so by calling it trash he admits he comes from trash. simple as that.

There is no Lebanese authority because of your religion and because you allow yourselves to believe in worthless/unworthy reasons which has made you all less capable of having self control, patience and ability to distinguish true belief from false which comes with deadly consequences. It is easy to manipulate credulous characters.

Southern and his likes talk as if he is a model citizen. Before you voice an irrelevant opinion I would like to see you urge the army to eradicate your militia and its statelet that is outside state control.

I don't understand why the Palestine authority dosent arrest him and hand him to the lebanese authority what a corrupt country.

Lebanon will never know real stability until all these Palestinian camps are under the control of the state and LAF. Some question Hezbollah's arms (as I do with regard to wanting all arms under LAF control), but how often do the same people question the situation in these camps? Every outlaw has a free zone to escape to. These camps come under full control like what happened in Bedawi but hopefully peacefully.

May the army finally get to catch these two scoundrels, including those who gave and still keep giving them all forms of support.
