Chamoun: Hizbullah Must Surrender its Arms

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Leader of the National Liberal Party MP Dory Chamoun, urged Hizbullah and all other armed factions in Lebanon to surrender their arms to the Lebanese Armed Forces after their proven ability to protect the country following the Costa cafe incident, al-Joumhouria daily reported on Monday.

“Hizbullah and every faction outside legitimacy must surrender their weapons to the Lebanese army because it is has proven successful in protecting Lebanon. Confidence of the Lebanese in their army and its performance is mounting,” said Chamoun.

Commenting on the suicide attack attempt that was foiled by the security forces and army, Chamoun said: “The foiled suicide attempt in Hamra and the continuous success of the army and security forces in missions like that one, raise the morale of the security elements. It makes them more active in their fight against terrorism and reassures the Lebanese.”

On Saturday, the Army intelligence agents arrested a would-be suicide bomber at the Costa cafe in Beirut's Hamra district, one of the capital's busiest areas.

A man wearing an explosive bomb belt was detained by authorities after entering the crowded cafe on the main street of the bustling district.

Sources said the man was being followed by security forces, who have stepped up foot patrols in the neighborhood in recent weeks.

An army statement had said the operation was a joint effort with the Intelligence Branch of the Internal Security Forces.

I have so much respect for the Leader of the National Liberal Party MP Dory Chamoun, for urging Hizbullah and all other armed factions in Lebanon to surrender their arms to the Lebanese Armed Forces.

Could not write this tribute without mentioning Dactor Geagea by name and his Lebanese Forces for saying the same thing on several occasions, for having serious concerns on the policy statement, and for assuring us the Cedar Revolution is still alive and well.

"Hizbullah and every faction outside legitimacy"

nice try chamo, but hezbollah is not outside legitimacy, whether or not your israeli fanboys agree or not is irrelevant.

Nonsense .... It is a militia that usurped the authority of the state by using force. A better description of it is the Iranian occupation force in Lebanon.

Iranian Mowaten ... I can care less what you and Israeli supporters want. Israel is more than happy to continue having failing states around it who will not progress or amount to anything.

Thumb _mowaten_ 23 January 2017, 13:12

You know what israel is happy to see? The so called "revolution" in Syria where arab and turkish monies and blood are financing the destruction of the last arab secular nationalist state and slaughtering its people.

On the other hand, a strong resistance in lebanon, which kicked it out of occupied land and is denying it any hope of re-entry, is not among the things israel is happy to see.

hezbollah is an iranian owned and operated sectarian militia that is outside legitimacy and international law. They are an iranian tool and you are their shoe laces.

FT and Iranian Mowaten ... Spare us the nonsense. The path to building a strong state is well known. It is by building the institution of governance and not by having militias answerable to foreign state. As for Syria, many can be rightly accused of participating in destroying the country but chief among them is a criminal regime that refused every chance to peaceful resolution and the mullah regime in Iran. To this day, they are working hard to sabotage any resolution that does not guarantee them victory.

"building the institution of governance" doesnt mean anything habboub. get down to earth and stop throwing random words you think are impressive, nobody is fooled

first thing we need to do is guarantee our survival and territorial integrity, before speaking of governance and dreaming we're Switzerland.
With israel to the south and wahhabi-funded hordes of terrorists to the north and east, and the pervasive foreign influences at all political levels (for some reason you obsess about Iran, but somehow fail to see the much more intense pressures from US/France/UK/KSA to name a few, and the stranglehold they exert on our decision-making abilities) were do not have the luxury of your falsafeh.

Building the institutions of governance may be falsafeh to uneducated people like you. But it is the key ingredient to building successful and democratic states. Perhaps, you should take a course in political science about governance. If we do not build strong institutions, then we are doomed.

It doesnt mean anything concretely, it's words thrown in the air. Unless you tell me exactly, realistically what that would mean in your "educated opinion" and how one would proceed step by step, or stop wasting my time.

your plan so far:
1- disarm hezbollah
2- we have no idea but we'll figure out later, providing we still have a country and we're not turned into gaza v2.0

Missing 23 January 2017, 16:05

Irani Mowaten .... Here is one: (1) strengthen the army by emulating either the Swiss or Israeli conscription models. This can go hand in hand with banning of all militias in Lebanon (2) strengthing of the investigative arm of the police to better control crime coupled with an independent ombudsman to oversea any violations (3) the streamlining of the multitude of security and intelligence agencies we have in Lebanon (4) reforming the judicary by simultaneously making them more accountable but also independent of the political authority (5) ban foreign money in politics and the list goes on .... The first two are the most important items as nothing can happen without them.

Missing 23 January 2017, 16:11

Populism and demagoguery is what you are offering: sloganeering about resistance and accusing anyone that does not accept the arms of a foreign-funded militia to be an Israeli collaborator or stooge. What do you offer the Lebanese people? A contining conflict!! At one point, those opposing your arms may form their own militia? What is then?

Thumb _mowaten_ 23 January 2017, 18:03

here is why your plans are words in the air:
1) we already have a conscription and military service system it's not like the swiss or israelis invented anything, what we lack are funds to pay for weapons, equipment, wages, trainings etc. to follow your comparisons, the swiss are extremely rich and the isrealis are living like ticks on the back of the USA. Whatever we do, we need some outside backing or else the scales wont be balanced.
2)"strengthening" is a nice and easy word, but how do you do that? more men? more high tech equipment? same problem as in 1), how do you fund it? and how do you make sure your ombudsmen are independent and not henchmen of one or the other zo3amas? how do you make sure they are not wasta enablers?

Thumb _mowaten_ 23 January 2017, 18:05

3) streamlining? the US has over 18 security agencies and more military branches, we have the army, the ISF and the general security, with each their area of expertise. and streamlining often means trimming down manpower, which is already in direct contradiction with your points 1) and 2)
4) "simultaneously making them more accountable but also independent of the political authority" again, that sounds good, but how do you do that? i left my magic wand at home, do you have yours handy?
5) your points 1) and 2) require big funds, where do you expect to get them if not through foreign aid (whether saudi, american, french, british or iranian)?

Thumb _mowaten_ 23 January 2017, 18:09

you ask me what resistance has offered the lebanese people? you mean besides liberation of lebanese soil from isreali occupation, shielding from terrorist hordes and dissuasion of isreli bombing? humm i dont know, let me think on it

Thumb Mystic 23 January 2017, 12:32

Charmoun wants this disarmament to leave Lebanon open to attack, get rid of the Resistance weapons means giving into Israeli demands and surrender.

This is Israels biggest dream, and these people and others we well know still follows Zionist agendas.

Will still be better than having an Iranian occupation force usurping the authority of the state. If the Mullah party is keen on making Lebanon strong, has it occurred to them that having a military akin to Switzerland is the answer and not having a militia who reports directly to an apocalyptic cult in Iran.

Missing 23 January 2017, 13:12

Of course it did, but that will weaken their hold on the country and God forbid make it impossible for them to storm Beirut again when they do not like a government policy.

Iranian Mowaten ... You show yourself to be the clown. Switzerland built a people's army where every able citizen is trained and regularly retrained. This has made small Switzerland an unappetizing victim to much larger powers (cost versus benefits calculations). Prior to that, Switzerland was not much different than Lebanon with its constituent parts participating in futile sectarian and ethnic conflicts in Europe.

Hezbollah arms are like Ba'ath party in Syria, this is how they run countries for many years by intimidation, kidnapping and killing anyone who does not abide by the Ba'ath party.
If you are not with the Ba'ath or Hezbollah then you are automatically Mossad or Saudi.
The Lebanese army is fighting for all Lebanese citizens, those who kidnap Risha and those who terrorize hamra, on the other hand the militias have their own agenda drawn from outside Lebanon the state you live in. If they are not loyal then no money or power is drawn in to them.

How about we see in TV the Lebanese IDs of those who kidnapped Saad Risha with the ak47 similar to Omar assi.

Thumb Mystic 23 January 2017, 17:04

So why disarm a group that would weaken the Lebanese Army? How will do you think the Lebanese Army would withstand an Israeli attack.

With the Cessna planes that the U.S were so nice to give us? Should they take on F-16 planes.
Atleast with the Resistance to backup the Lebanese Army, we would have a chance to make hard ground attacks on Israeli cities, as they will bomb ours in Lebanon.
