Hizbullah Will Defend Syrian Regime Even at Price of Sparking War with Israel

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanon must not hesitate in supporting the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, because backing it has major “strategic and fateful” repercussions, sources close to Hizbullah told the Kuwaiti al-Rai newspaper in remarks published on Sunday.

They said: “Hizbullah will not allow the fall of the Assad regime even if it means launching a war with Israel.”

This position echoed Israeli fears that a war with the party may be ignited in order to divert attention from the current developments in Syria, said the newspaper.

The Israeli leadership is mulling “the need to issue an open threat to Hizbullah as part of a wider strategy adopted by the Israeli government.”

“This strategy aims at deterring Hizbullah and Iran from carrying out any attack against Israeli targets,” stated several sources, including the Jerusalem Post.

The Hizbullah sources did not rule out the possibility of “surprises emerging, aimed at turning attention away from the Syrian crisis.”

“Should such a surprise take place, it would shift the international community’s priorities in the region,” they stressed.

On January 14, Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah said that Lebanon should disavow itself from developments in Syria as the crisis will have negative repercussions on the situation locally.

“We call on the Syrian opposition to abide by Assad’s demands to engage in dialogue and cooperate with him to introduce reform that would resolve the country’s problems,” he stated.

During a speech in December, he voiced his support for the Syrian regime, while saying that his party backs reform and efforts to eradicate corruption in the neighboring country.

Nasrallah stressed, however, that “some people want to destroy Syria,” they reject dialogue, and they seek to “compensate their loss in Iraq.”

The Hizbullah chief accused the West of seeking to bring a new regime in Syria that would be disloyal to Arabs.

The Lebanese People Will Defend Lebanon Even at Price of Sparking War with Hezbollah.

Missing hmorsel 05 February 2012, 19:39

unfortunatly you are wrong New_guy, the lebanese people WILL not defend Lebanon, we all know what happened when Hisbollah attacked everyone in 2008, everyone ran and hid except for the Druze, and that's when Jumblatt realized that he was going to stand up to HA by himself and changed asociations. The christians and sunnis were cowards they simply ran and hid. and the same thing will happen this time. Guarranteed

hmorsel the only reason the Sunnis & Christians didn't fight in 2008 was only to avoid a civil war in Lebanon. Don't think for a sec that you Sunnis, Christians, Druz and some Shiias can wage a war and disarm HA. the only way is through national dialogue.

National dialogue does not work with Hezbollah, they continually repeat they will never be disarmed... why are they so stubborn.

Default-user-icon Elias (Guest) 06 February 2012, 23:50

what you are saying is not true. The Sunnies and Christians did not fight because they knew that Hizbollah could start a war but can never achieve anything out of it. they can take over beirut but then what? they have to pull out again. Unfortunatly Walid beik did not read correctly at the time and made two mistakes the first one when he fought and the second when he decided to suck up to Syria and Hizbullah.

In 2006 - Hamas kidnapped an Israeli soldier in Gaza. Israel launched attacks against Gaza
3 weeks into the attacks on Gaza - the Iranians asked Nasrallah to enflame the Lebanese front to alleviate the pressure on Hamas in Gaza. Nasrallah abided & and launched the attack against the israeli patrol & took the bodies of two - triggering the devastating 2006 war on Lebanon.
If Hizbullah triggered a war just for the sake of helping Hamas. It would not be a surprise if they did so to help Bashar.

It's good to see people uniting to stop US/Israeli aggression. Now they need to rollback the US presence from their region -- one facility at a time. It's the only way to avoid a future WW3.

After they stop Washington's state-sponsored-terror, maybe they can help to bring these war criminals to trial for their very real crimes against humanity.

Their real enemy is the syrian/lebanese sunis, this is the truth and people better be frank about it from now on. The nasralah who stands with the syrian regime massacaring the sunis knows who his real enemy is. Israel/iran/hizzie/bashar are tacit allies when it comes to the sunis, that is really the truth.

@ Realist, you are right a 100%, Hezbollah's dream was never to invade Israel, its goal is Lebanon and has always been Lebanon. If you think about it clearly, State within a state, electrical power 24/24, Telecommunication lines. The only thing they needed was the legal power and they now have it thanks to Aoun. Since they have everything and the governement supports them, What are they waiting to liberate Shebaa farms? bunch of cowards and liars. They want to destroy the sunnis in Lebanon by removing Ashraf Rifi and Hassan which are the only men still capable of standing in the way of Hezb mini-state. And you are right, this time is not like in 2006, after 2008, the sunnite will never ever let the chiite come hide in their neighboorhoods, or the druze. This is why Hezb has been so close to Bkirki those last months, they are preparing in case they need to hide their people in the christian neighboorhoods.

It really does not matter whether it is true that Hezbollah will commite mass suicide by launching an attack on Israel to "divert" attention from Syria. Personally I think this is bogus. The Israelis have been waiting for some casus belli to occur to justify its taking out Hezbollah and its rockets. This is a necessary precursor to Israel going after Iran, an act for which it is deterred by Hezbollah rockets aimed at it.
This story is about like the story of a person holding another hostage with the police outside the door. The hostage taker screams: "Leave or else I will take my gun and shoot myself!!"

It is interesting how the Zionist commentators here ( and I am not including peace, Marc, and a few others) always are overjoyed when Lebanese and Arabs are killing each other. They cheered Saddam's invasion of Kuwait and the US invasion of Iraq. How long do you think that the Terrorist Israeli state is going to survive by divide and Conquer? Just like the Shia in Iraq and Lebanon are united, the Sunni majority will unite and will first get rid of ALL the Sunni America/Israeli puppets. Again, for the Israeli enemy and their Lebanese & Arab puppets...be very careful what you wish for. The Taliban and other Sunni Islamists were friends of America and the kings..they can easily turn against you and unite like the Shia.

Just some notes regarding 18 September 2003 testimony to House Sub Committee on Int. Relations from the PDF posted above.
Note - these are all quotes directly from Aoun.

1. "One cannot rationally disassociate the Syrian regime from terrorism. Syria provides safe haven for a myriad of terrorist organisations, directs their operations..."
What has changed in this regard. why is Aoun now against Lebanese factions, yet says very little regarding the terrorist factions accross the country.
Why is he now ignoring the PLFP who are still armed, and have their training camps in the bekaa.

2. "the cladestine nature of these regimes and organisations would allow them to quickly and easily restructure and reemerge under completely new aliases..."
Doesn't this very statment raise any red flags to the Aounies regarding nahr el bared, and the fateh el islam?
Where did Shaker al Absi come from?

Default-user-icon LebExile (Guest) 06 February 2012, 19:13

3. "the only effective and permanant way to reverse the spread of fundamentalism is not to choose dictatorship over fundamentalism, it is rather to provide a third alternative - democracy.."
Why has Aoun done a complete 180 degree turn regarding this statement?
why is he so supportive of Assad and Hizbollah - a dictatorship and a fundamentalist religious group?

4. "Since the Syrian regime directly intervened in Lebanon, it has consistently incited the Lebanese against each other at every level..."
What has changed - why is Aoun allowing himself and his followers to be incited?

Default-user-icon LebExile (Guest) 06 February 2012, 19:13

5. "following a Syrian withdrawal, it is quite conceivable that the Syrian regime ill leave behind many of it's instruments of terror and destruction as well as it's paramilitary/intelligence apparatus, Therefore it is imperative that any Syrian withdrawal be accompanied by a complete disarrarmament of all armed elements."
Isn't this what the March 14 camp had to fight with for the last 5 years, including all the terrorist bombings, the assasinations, the killings.
I'm not asking Aoun or his followers to blindly accuse Syria of involvement in these attacks/assasinations, but doesn't his very statment point the finger in a certain direction.
Why is Aoun so quick to exonerate Syria of all wrongdoing?
Why is Aoun so willing to forgive Syria, and disregard what is happening in the country.

Answer these questions rationally and logically
