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.
