So much for Hezbollah

Hezbollah has finally shown where their loyalties lie, and-surprise surprise- they are not with the lebanese people. The Lebanese faction Hezbollah declared its full support for Syria on Sunday, directly challenging opposition groups a day after Syria promised to gradually withdraw troops from Lebanon. Hezbollah's leader, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, spoke to reporters on Sunday in his stronghold in southern Beirut, breaking weeks of relative silence over the crisis concerning Syria's presence in Lebanon. He called for Lebanese to "express their gratitude" to Syria by joining a demonstration on Tuesday against United Nations Resolution 1559, which calls for Syria's withdrawal and Hezbollah's disarmament. "I invite all Lebanese to this meeting to refuse foreign interference," he said. Foreign interference you say? Ok, i am confused. Isn't Syria's presence and control over Lebanese politics considerd foreign interference? Or is it because they fund your organization they are considerd ok by you? Although he acknowledged that a Syrian pullout was a reality, he emphasized that Syria must be able to leave with honor - a reaction to repeated statements by the Bush administration and Lebanese opposition groups calling for a quick and complete pullout of Syrian forces. The fact that the lebanese deserve to live with honor- the kind that involves them controlling their own country and not have their leaders brutally assassinated- is not relevant to Hezbollah it seems. If Syria were to leave, it has to save face and not look like they are being pressured to be doing that by both the lebanese and the international community. Cuase you know, it might hurt their feelings. Hey, at least we know that Hezbollah priorities aren't that of Lebanon, but of Syria, which kinda makes them traitors. Hey Israel, wanna continue bombing them? I am cool with that and i have a feeling that the lebanese opposition might be cool with it as well. Call it a hunch.

I definitely agree with you about Hezbollah. Being an armed militia that is against the will the Lebanese people in the push for freedom and independence means that they are enemies of the Lebanese people. The sooner that they are forced to disband or removed the better for Lebanon and the region.

Sam and Peter,

Sorry to disappoint you but the people of Lebanon
(millions) in the streets of Beirut spoke today to support Hizbollah, the unity of Lebanon and showed their anger at the United States, the UN and Israel.

I guess the People spoke clearly today and the so called supporters of democracy should listen to the people.

Twosret,
Millions?

did you just say millions? isn;t that just a lil exaggeration sweetie?

Plus, a lot of the people who demonstrated today are actually syrians who crossed the borders. The rest are Hizbollah loyalists who do not support syria, but support Hizbollah and would have gone the other way if Hizbollah was actually loyal to lebanon isntead to its syrian funding masters.

Plus, hizbollah supporters are all shia muslims, the lenbanese opposition are sunni, chistians and druze. You know comprising the majority of lebanon.

and btw the so called supporters of democracy are supporters of democracy, lebanese dempocracy, not puppet governments imposed by the syrians. you know?

your comments are usually smarter then this sweetie,so what happend this time? are you ok? :p

Sam,

LBC (Lebanese Broadcast Corp.) did air the event and that is the number they mentioned. One to two million people. Al-Jazeera also reported the same. Syrians crossing the borders just to wave the lebanese flag and call for unity and investigation of Harirri's death. I like those guys already :)

Only the ungrateful will forget the help of Syria to Lebanon. Syria was the supporter of Lebanon when the US was watching the invasion of Israel. When the whole world was watching the Sabra and Shatila and no freaking human rights or UN did anything.

Syria liberated Lebanon from civil war and invasion of Israel the aggressor that invaded Lebanon for 18 years. The opposition of Lebanon could do nothing under Israel occupation or during civil war.

I really LOL when I hear you saying puppet Gov. are you including Mubarak and Saudi King as puppets of America or not? Paleaze don't tell me that you are going with the flow about this democracy crap ;)

As for my comments being smart or not that is not the topic of our discussion.

P.S. don't tell me you believe that Harirri was killed by Syrians :)
