Saniora Contacts Shiite Officials, Urges Halt to Hizbullah Fighting in Syria through All Means

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Head of the Mustaqbal bloc MP Fouad Saniora contacted on Thursday a number of Shiite religious and political figures as part of efforts to put an end to Hizbullah's “dangerous” fighting in Syria.

He stressed the need to end the party's involvement “through all possible means.”

“The fighting violates the constitution, laws, Baabda Declaration, the policy of disassociation, and international resolutions,” he noted in a statement issued by his press office.

His contacts included Speaker Nabih Berri, former Speaker Hussein al-Husseini, Vice President of the Higher Islamic Shiite Council Sheikh Abdul Amir Qabalan, former Ministers Mohammed Abdul Hamid Baydoun and Ibrahim Shamseddine, and clerics Sayyed Ali Fadlallah, Sayyed Ali al-Amin, Sayyed Mohammed Hassan al-Amin, and Sayyed Hani Fahs.

Saniora highlighted to them the dangers of Hizbullah's involvement in the Syrian crisis, saying that it will drag Lebanon towards the unrest.

“Hizbullah's actions may drag Lebanon and the Lebanese people towards a confrontation with a large segment of the Syrian people, who oppose the Syrian regime,” he explained.

“Hizbullah's actions are leading to the deaths of Lebanese youths and Syrian citizens. They are causing human suffering and inexplicable destruction” that may steer Lebanon to a confrontation that it has no power in resisting, continued the former premier.

Instead of protecting Lebanon against the repercussions of the crisis in the neighboring country, some Lebanese and throwing themselves in the conflict, he added.

He urged the need for cooperation between all Lebanese factions in order to end Hizbullah's involvement, demanding that practical measures be taken to that end.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announced on Thursday that over a hundred Hizbullah members were killed over nearly an eight-month period since they began fighting alongside the Syrian regime.

Missing peace 23 May 2013, 18:07

and tell us what do they have to do with M14? did M14 say they are sending fighters like your iranman said it? NO...

so you re stupid remarks are based on assumptions as usual just to justify the presence of hezbis despite the wish of the LEBANESE government...

Missing peace 23 May 2013, 18:24

just tell us: can you compare a man selling some ammunitions with real fighters on the ground? are you going to tell us that M14 is supplying so much ammunitions that it ll change the course of the war there? can you tell us if he did this on behalf of M14?
can you tell us whose side was samaha on when he wanted to ignite strife in lebanon by killing LEBANESE?
can you tell us if M14 OFFICIALLY said they are in syria like hezbis said it?
can you tell us if the hezbis disagreed with the baabda declaration?
can you tell us if hezbis says anything when the syrian army bombs lebanon?

as if hezbis cared about lebanese institutions or laws....

LOL ... Saqr and Hariri were caught red handed supplying weapons and ammunition ... Mikati and his partners are busy making loot off of supplying both sides ...

Saniora always has to do Hariris' dirty work and quite frankly he is not very good at it and no one believes him anyway. What a sad spectacle M14 has become ...

The sad spectacle is what is coming to Lebanon because of Hezbollah's millionth attempt to pull lebanon into an uncontrollable situation, endangering all lebanese citizens.

You fail to see the truth that is exposed all in front of your eyes. You believe Hezbollah are saints trying to salvage lebanon ? They are a plague robing you of your freedom, security and prosperity. They are holding you and every single lebanese hostage to the "divine words" of Nasrallah the Terrible. They rob, steal, smuggle and murder. They wage wars without caring about the Lebanese. Yet you accuse others of doing dirty work.

The Sad Spectacle are you handicapped sheep, blind, deaf and senseless with a goldfish memory and capacity to absorb and repeat lies like robotic parrots.

God help you ... god help us ... or to put it in your words, Hassan help you, Hassan help us ...

wahahaha! i guess yes a few ammunitions can be comparable with real hezbis fighters that would drag lebanon into war!
hariri was caught? LOL
how stupid you can be when you run low on arguments to defend this iranian militia.....

Thumb mckinl 23 May 2013, 16:05

Well once again Future can not make good on its promises to the GCC and NATO and tries to beg its way out of the consequences.

Future leadership is caught between their responsibility to Lebanon and their fidelity to foreign ownership.

This is a desperate attempt to salvage their political base that wants no part of their partnership with the Wahhabi war in Syria.

hizbushaitan followers are happy to die: they have been brought up in the culture of death and that of the hassasine....
this war is a no win for hizbushaitan whatever they do. all they can do is try to extend the time before the inevitable end result. they hope to keep this regime alive, but ultimately the real end result is that this regime cannot survive for any reason.
so what are the achievements of hizbushaitan in this respect? useless deaths for a war we have nothing to do with.
plus the expected future repercussions for standing with this tyrant regime.
they dug their grave with their hands....

useless deaths do not make me happy

Whatever "his fighters" are doing, this does not excuse the cancer that Hezbollah is to Lebanon !

You cannot defend your actions by saying accusing others of doing the same.

Moreover, even if Siniora has "fighters" (which is an unfounded statement from ignorants like you who will repeat any brainwashed argument you listen to), they do not reach 1% of the army of satan that is Hezbollah.

Absolumente fadson. We can thank Bashar for allowing t the entire world to see the true face of Hizballa. They're hired mercenaries paid to kill in the name of an ayatollah and his Lebanese chihuahua.
