Suicide Of A Nation - Lebanon To Legalize Hizbullah MilitiaTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Lest there be any doubt in your minds up to now, given this development, you can put them all aside. Lebanon is no longer, Lebanon. It is a satelite of Iran and radical Islam:
[...] A draft policy statement that could secure Hizbullah's existence as an armed organization and guarantees its right to "liberate or recover occupied lands" is expected to be approved by the Lebanese council of ministers on Monday before being presented to the parliament in the coming days.A sad and dangerous day in history and the beginning of an even more dangerous time for Israel, having occurred by the hand of Iran with an eye toward the destruction of Israel and a challenge to the West. Using Hezbollah as its puppet, Iran has just conquered Lebanon.
Some observers in Lebanon see the clause on "resistance" as a significant victory for Hizbullah, which has long resisted giving up its arms in its fight against Israel.
[...] ... a vehemently anti-Hizbullah government - led by a majority that has significant Western support - has put its signature to a clause that allows Hizbullah to take actions in the fields listed without seeking government approval," Goksel said.
"It also puts an end to any dreams of disarming Hizbullah. It secures Hizbullah's armed existence."
Government sources in Jerusalem said the decision would make the government in Beirut an accomplice to any Hizbullah aggression and give Israel the right to hold it responsible.
