Mansour Calls for 'Decisive' Arab League Stance on Israeli Airstrikes in Syria

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Caretaker Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour urged the Arab League on Sunday to take a “decisive stance” from the recent Israeli airstrikes in Syria.

Mansour condemned “the assault and the silence of the international community on the repeated Israeli aggressions on more than one Arab country.”

He called on “the Arab League to take a decisive stance from this dangerous development to avoid” further escalation.

Mansour accused Israel in his statement of “preparing for a largescale invasion to blow up the region and push it to a destructive confrontation.”

Israel carried out on Sunday what an intelligence official said was an airstrike in Damascus that allegedly attacked a shipment of Iranian-made missiles bound for Hizbullah.

It was the second Israeli strike in three days.

But the Syrian state news agency SANA reported early Sunday that explosions went off at the Jamraya research center near Damascus, causing casualties.

"Initial reports point to these explosions being a result of Israeli missiles that targeted the research center in Jamraya," SANA said.

this is exactly the kind of statement i would expect from a faithful syrian regime puppet like mansour.what is patriotic for you is treason for him and vice versa.
man you have to realize we have a very serious problem in this country when the foreign minister who represents lebanon worldwide is so biased with the syrian regime.
the politicians who oppose his views should start sending immediately delegations to the major world capitals overseas to clarify their point of view and repair the damage he has already done.

Maroun, Israeli ally to Lebanese forces during civil war ended with killing President Bashir Jmayile. Do You consider Israel bring peace to Lebanon and Syria. They killed President Bashir for his disobidience.

when he starts condemning the Syrian aggression toward Lebanon then he has the right to condemn the aggression against Syria. Lebanon first Syria comes second.

Is he serious we have enough problems in Lebanon and to have the nerve and worry about Syria.

His a foreign minister of Lebanon not a Secretary of State of America.

making more noise about syria being attacked vs syria attacking us?

yes, we know where is loyalties are and he should be the first minister axed from not only the next government, but all lebanese governments going forward. Of course, if a position in syria opens up, don't let the door hit you in the behind on the way out.

Is he an acting foreign minister for Syria or Lebanon?

Maybe the Syrian foreign minister is on vacation?

Perhaps his sons were in this chemical plant....

suleiman condemned the syrian attacks and told mansour to deliver the message to the syrian side. So, question is, what happened to the message?

Again, ALL transgressions should be treated equally. If you don't get that, then you are so biased that you are grasping for straws to justify Mansour's inactions.

F.T., what you said is true, also true is that same with the M8 and Israel's violation of Lebanon's sovereignty.
In the 60s and 70s Lebanon's sovereignty was violated by the Palestinians and Lebanese left with support from Syria. This resulted in Israeli retaliations and violations of Lebanese skies and borders. Then Hezb came along and violated Lebanon's sovereignty by thanking the Syria for its occupation of Lebanon and ensuring that the state will not rise, to justify that goal they poke at Israel justifying Israel's ongoing violations. It is time for us Lebanese to reject any entity that violates Lebanon's sovereignty be it M14 Salafists, M8 Hezb, Palestenians arms, Israel or Syria ...... nation building can never take place otherwise.

Is this Foreign Minister Lebanese or Syrian?!!! WTF!!!!

We wanted to kicked out the Syrian Ambassador from Lebanon... now we should do the same for this so called "Minister"!!
We can't accept that such Minister " Hizbullah puppet & opinion" be a FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER representing "Lebanese Republic" and forcing everybody to "Their opinion"!!!

I can't believe that he urged the Arab League for "decisive stance” from the recent Israeli airstrikes in Syria!!!!

But I did not hear him when his allies the Assad Syrian Airplanes bombarded Lebanese territories on the borders with Syria and killed innocent kids or when Syrian Airplanes overflew on the Lebanese Borders with Syria!!

But if Israel was the one to do so... He blames the International Community and the Arab League for the Silence!!

Are you kidding dude!! :)

This is where the trouble starts. When a senior (?) minister starts talking about events in another country whilst completely ignoring acts of war against his own country, then we know that trouble is just around the corner for his country.

Thumb LebDinosaur 05 May 2013, 18:25

I thought just yesterday Suleiman repeated Lebanon's dissociation stance. So what is this? That guy is totally out to lunch and a Hezb mouthpiece. How can he be allowed to say such things. Suleiman should slam him down.

Thumb LebDinosaur 05 May 2013, 19:01

Because his statement serves to protect Hezb, not Lebanon.

Stand for Lebanon and no one else, if you can. I do.

losing your temper FT, seems you re not happy to see your beloved regime in difficulty...

just read what dinosaur wrote, he is talking about the disassociation policy not anything antilebanese as you say... or is reminding a minister of what the president said is antilebanese as long as it is against the hezb your pimps? lol
