Moussawi: There Can Be No National Consensus without Agreeing on Resistance

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Loyalty to the Resistance bloc MP Nawwaf al-Moussawi declared on Monday that the resistance is an integral part of Lebanon, while reiterating Hizbullah's rejection of the formation of a “de facto” government.

He said: “There can be no national consensus without agreeing on the resistance.”

“A de facto cabinet is illegitimate and unconstitutional,” he remarked.

Commenting on the assassination of former Finance Minister Mohammed Shatah, Moussawi noted: “The crime should have motivated all political parties to unite to confront the danger threatening the Lebanese people.”

“Instead however we were met with an attempt to exploit the crime in order to alter the balance of power in Lebanon,” he added.

“Some sides used the assassination for intimidation,” he remarked.

“Those resorting to intimidation through escalating their political rhetoric to pressure the prime minister-designate and president should realize that their attempts will fail,” he stressed,

Moussawi therefore renewed the demand for the formation of a cabinet that grants nine ministers to each of the March 8 and 14 camps and six ministers to centrists.

“Such a government will pave the way to reviving parliament, which should in turn lead to staging the presidential elections,” he explained.

Shatah was assassinated in a major car bombing in downtown Beirut on Friday.

Seven other people were killed in the blast.

national concensus a la hizbushaitan:

we bomb you and you have to shut up :)

A de facto cabinet is illegitimate and unconstitutional:

Go read the constitution , you illiterate liar, and tell us on which page it says what you say :)


what resistance are you talking about? it has been over since ......

hezbollah did not bomb chatah nor any of the previous one. it's obvious whoever did this wants that reaction from people like you geha.
and i'm sure you'd see it, if only you weren't so blinded by sectarian hatred. deep down you're just glad to have that pretext. actually i didnt see much sadness in your posts of the last days, it's all big smileys and joyful tone. you sound like "finally got an excuse to shout out hatred! yay!

as for m14 perception of democracy, it's empty accusations, finger pointing, and exclusion of the others, while taking direct orders fromt he most backwards dictatorial kingdom in the world.

There is no national consensus and m14 do not deserve any support if they succumb to the blackmail of HA. The only legitimate armed formations are those belonging to the state and empowered by the Lebanese contitution to perform their duties. All others and on top of them HA are illegitimate militias. People must choose between building a real and advanced state or live in a zoo.

General principles:
I. No authority violating the common co-existence charter shall be legitimate

C-Prime Minister:
Hold parliamentary consultations to form the cabinet and co-sign with the president the decree forming it. The cabinet shall submit its cabinet statement to the Chamber of Deputies for a vote of confidence within 30 days [of its formation]. The cabinet may not exercise its powers before gaining the confidence, after its
resignation, or when it is considered retired, except within the narrow sense of disposing of affairs.

You ve simply equivocated his distaste for your militia as sectarianism. Your militia isn't a sect, just a piece of dog turd run by the biggest turbaned turd of them all.

before I answer your question, allow me to introduce myself.
I am a Lebanese American living in Southern California but I visit regularly Lebanon and I happen to be in Beirut right now. I have sadly witnessed the first bombing . I have watched on TV all previous ones. Let me tell you it was horrible much worse than a bad nightmare.

part 2
I was particularly touched by Mmr. Shatah's death, a brilliant and intellectual man devoteing his life to Lebanon. I was particularly moved and touched by Mr. Chaar's death, a bright and colorful young man whose life was abruptly taken away. I cried just thinking that this young man represents the new blood the future of the country and yet he fell victim of a non sense violence gripping our nation. we are decimating our future by killing our young men and women who will be running our country.

part 3
Now answering your question I do not support animals who eat their victim's organs. As a matter of fact I do not support war and destruction. I don't know your age but I am old enough and lucky enough to have lived in Beirut when my city and my country was the jewel and the envy of the world. I recall the days when people were rushing to Lebanon as Beirut was even better than Paris, London and New York. Where is Beirut now? a desolate and sad place symbolizing death, destruction and viciousness. It is so sad.
I support and have no affiliation with any political group in Lebanon.
I support a peaceful, harmonious and prosperous Lebanon. I hope I can see that before I die
I hope I have answered your question.

Let me know

I am not sure why you only blame M14 for suicide bombings and other nasty acts. Although I am not an M14er, but blaming them alone is wrong. All Lebanese groups and all Lebanese politicians share the blame

There is no resistance any longer. There is just an Iranian armed militia. The days that you were respected and revered are long gone. Today you are nothing more than an extension of what is wrong in the region.

Resistance doesnot mean a sectarian party lead by a sayed or cheikh, getting its ideology from the revolutionary gards of the islamic republic of iran... Resistance are like the communists assassinated by hezbollah, fighter from multiple religions and coming from across lebanon to defend their country.. Definetly not ur... And please use the term hezbollah or islamic resistance so it cannot be mixed with the national partiotic resistance front launched by georges hawi (entre autre) and wich is a pride to our country...
Minus one moussawi, minus one...

What resistance? If indeed they are resistance they ought to be on the Israeli border and trying to take back shebaa farms and ghajar.
They have no business intervening in the Syrian quagmire which resulted in exposing Lebanese to suicide bombers namely the dahye bombing and that of shatah

First southern the mufti was not nearly assassinated, don't exaggerate and dramatize especially when the people you support are accused of the ACTUAL assassination of Hariri and the many martyrs after. Second 9,9,6 is not the only way, the constitution is THE ONLY WAY, and that means the president and pm designate select the ministers and sends this list to the parliament to approve or reject, that my friend is the ONLY WAY as articulated in the constitution that you, me and Mr Mousawi falls under.

Very Good Moussawi, you have finally broken the code! Yes, there is no national consensus about your Resistance. No one knows what it is resisting anymore. Mainly Hezbollah seems to be resisting the Lebanese, their Government, constitution, laws, and people as it pursues a unilateral foreign, defense and security policy in Lebanon in violation of the Baabda Declaration, the constitution, laws and the security of the people of Lebanon.
Yes, Mr. Moussawi, we do not have a consensus on your "Resistance" and so it will not be a part of the Policy Statement of the New Government!

If your argument is true, they would assassinate MPs and not Shatah. This will give them an upper hand to form a majority goverment. All they need is three to four MPs.

As I said on a different article. If there is ever a time to force HA's hand, it is now. The army is approaching its strongest, public opinion is way down for HA now that they are exposed for what they truly are and they are fighting a war in another country they cannot win. now is the time to form a neutral government and tell them to take their threats and shove them!

Thumb irus_da_virus 30 December 2013, 21:22

its not up to us to decide whether the constitution is good or bad and what's worse is to ignore it and behave as if it doesn't exist. If M8 don't like the constitution then let them through the parliament ask for amendments, your argument is very dangerous because your basically advocating anarchy by saying that the constitution is bad hence anyone can do whatever they want. Its like a criminal refusing to follow the laws of the country because he doesn't agree with them, it doesn't work that way. Until the constitution is changed, the only person allowed to decide the ministers is the president and pm designate, full stop.

Default-user-icon trueself (Guest) 30 December 2013, 22:15

Is he in his right mind. His party hijacked Lebanon and he is talking about consensus and the constitution. They are threatening everyone with their arms which is not anymore directed at the enemy (Israel) anymore. They simply are destroying Lebanon literally. And yet he still talks about the sharing of power. These people should be hospitalized mentally to come back to their senses. I support no party. I am a neutral Lebanon who only wants what's best for my country. And this could only be achieved when all arms are in the hands of the army ONLY.

We should refrain from siding with parties or religious sects. Our loyalty should be to Lebanon and what good for it. Anyone, even an agnostic, who is doing what's right for Lebanon is the one that we should advocate and vote for.
