Hezbollah delegation meets Aoun, urges relation without 'noise and clamor'
A Hezbollah parliamentary delegation led by MP Mohammed Raad on Thursday held talks in Rabieh with ex-president and Free Patriotic Movement founder Michel Aoun.
During the meeting, Aoun stressed “the importance of national partnership, the continuation of the state building project, the fight against corruption and the protection of citizens’ rights,” the National News Agency said.
Raad for his part described the meeting as “very cordial,” saying he relayed “warm greetings” to Aoun from Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the party’s leadership.
“We reiterated our major appreciation of the firm and substantial relation between us, which strengthened national partnership, protected civil peace and immunized national sovereignty through serious and real deterrence provided by the commitment to the army-people-resistance equation, which fended off Lebanon the threats of the unruly, terrorist takfiri onslaught as well as the threats of Zionist attacks and violations,” Raad added, reciting a written statement.
“We stress our determination and keenness on continuing this relation with the FPM upon the bases to which president Michel Aoun contributed, which are founded on honesty, clarity and courage in addressing differences with a serious and patriotic spirit and mutual understanding, away from noise and clamor,” the lawmaker said.
He also called for unifying the efforts of all parties to exit “the current crisis and resume the state building course.”
Raad was reading from a prepared written statement. When did he get the time to prepare it or more likely the Hezbollah propaganda department prepare it for him. Two possibilities.
First possibility, Raad came up to Rabieh just to read a prepared statement regardless of how the meeting with Aoun went. They need to keep the charade going especially after the failed meeting their other delegation had with Bassil.
Or second possibility, the delegation had all the time in the world to write the statement down, when minutes into the meeting the demented, failed ex-president, cowardly Army deserter, corrupt embezzler, dozed off.
FPM are the most unhonourable party in this country, tfeh!. Gebran bassil and Michel aoun need to be the first people to go to prison.
Begging behind closed doors for continuation of out-of-sight negotiated relationships is inconsistent with a free society and government serving its citizens.
Aoun should, of course, remain cordial .. and at least as ineffective for Hezbollah going forward as he was for Lebanese while in office.
