Gulf States to Agree Action against Hizbullah Members

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Gulf Cooperation Council will hold a meeting in Riyadh next week to agree the mechanisms for imposing sanctions on members of Hizbullah, its head Abdul Latif al-Zayani said.

The monarchies of the GCC decided on June 10 to impose sanctions on alleged members of Hizbullah targeting their residency permits and their financial and business activities in reprisal for the group's armed intervention in Syria.

Thursday's meeting, in which deputy interior ministers from GCC member states will take part, would "develop the appropriate mechanisms for applying" the June 10 decision, Zayani said in comments quoted by official Saudi news agency SPA.

The sanctions would be implemented "in coordination... with ministers of commerce and the central banks of the GCC", he added, without giving further details about the precise nature of the mechanisms.

The Gulf Cooperation Council is made up of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar.

Qatari authorities expelled 18 Lebanese citizens from the gas-rich Gulf state on June 20, a government source in Beirut told Agence France Presse.

An estimated 360,000 Lebanese work in the Gulf, according to An Nahar daily, transferring some $4 billion dollars (three billion euros) annually back to the country, which has a population of just 4.1 million.

As long as they hit the HA men, not the Shias in general. No problem.

These HA gang are amazing. they got the whole wild word against them, not only israelis, but also americans, europeans, arabs, sunnites, most lebanese, now even chiites ... And they keep on going, and killing, and doing wars, and planting bombs and going and going and going... Like the dewars ad...

No doubt Asad is Tyrant, still much better than Monarchs who are never ending Tyrants and also corrupt, exploiters and tormentors. I hope once Hizbullah kick out Saudi sponsored Kharjees from Syria and Lebanon, they should extend their activities to Iraq and from there to Saudia and gulf states, to liberate people of these areas from tyrants ruling them as Monarchs, Hizbullah can easily do that by extending their supports with training, arms and armed men; to locals struggling in these areas against Monarchs. If Hizbullah would do they successfully, than it would be favor for whole Muslim World, Shia and Sunni alike.

I hope it doesn't stay at the GCC level only. Many HA supporters are living in the states and europe as well, some are with green cards and passports !! how hypocrite can someone be to live in a country and then call it "Al Shaytan Al Akbar" ?!!
Many right wing politicians in France/UK and repulbicans in the states are pushing for a ban on the terrorist HA organization supporters.
I really hope all these efforts do not mistakely affect innocent shiaa, and stay limited to the redical ones supporting HA.
HA = QAEDA (same game, different colors)

Amazing how people can be played, manipulated into sides. Enough with using the God card, people use it way too much to justify their actions and why they're doing what they're doing.

1- both have religeous motives
2- both follow supreme leaderships
3- both are ready to kill for their own reasons.
4- in their doctrines, both want a shariaa' rule. HA has this hidden agenda. do you think they would give up on a religeous obligation?
5- one wears white and the other wear black. one is sunni and the other is his equivilant shiaa. both are terrorists
