Lebanese Prime Minister Threatens To Resign Once Again If Hezbollah Refuses To Accept Changes In Status Quo

FILE IMAGE

After returning to Lebanon this week, Saad Hariri shelved his decision to resign as Lebanon’s Prime Minister at the request of President Michel Aoun, but would resign if Hezbollah refuses to accept changes to the current status quo. Aoun has begun two-day consultations with the country’s political leaders over the government’s future and Lebanon’s commitment to keeping itself away from regional conflicts.

On November 27, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri has warned Hezbollah against interfering in regional conflicts, saying he postponed his resignation to discuss ways to disassociate Lebanon from wars in neighbouring countries. He said he would remain Prime Minister “if Hezbollah accepted to stick by the state policy of staying out of regional conflicts from Syria to Iraq and Yemen”.

“I don’t want a political party in my government that interferes in Arab countries against other Arab countries,” Hariri said. “I am waiting for the neutrality which we agreed on in the government,” he added. “One can’t say one thing and do something else.”

“Lebanon cannot resolve a question like Hezbollah which is in Syria, Iraq, everywhere because of Iran. It is a regional political solution that needs to be done,” Hariri said.

A senior Lebanese official said the consultations at the presidential palace in Baabda aimed to help Hariri’s government “get back on its feet”, after weeks of political instability triggered by Hariri’s November 4 resignation, announced in Riyadh. Hariri’s abrupt resignation while he was in Saudi Arabia and his continued stay there caused fears over Lebanon’s stability and thrust it into the bitter rivalry between Riyadh and Iran, with the former backing the Yemeni government, and the latter backing the Houthi rebels, who  are now in control of the country’s capital Sanaa.

Shortly afterwards, Lebanese top officials accused Riyadh of kidnapping Hariri. Hariri then travelled back to Lebanon and put his resignation on hold at Aoun’s request in favour of a national dialogue. He also rejected claims that he had forcibly resigned.

    What a snake! Hezbollah is the only reason that Lebanon is not fully under Israeli occupation. Each and every country has traitors that are glad to sell their own people and this rat is one of them (actually he’s not even really Lebanese)

    • Bru

      indeed, and not only Israeli but also ISIS (which is also Israeli, but indirectly) occupation.

    • Johny

      No offense to the “rat” species, but he is plain garbage. I wonder why Lebanon chose a Saudi national as PM?

      • Tommy Jensen
      • Marc Fischer

        It was a compromise decision to keep the Sunnis reasonably happy so as not to give the Saudi Wahhabists any excuse to foment a civil war, similar to the one Israel fomented in the mid 1970s, which totally ruined Lebanon. Sometimes you have to make unpalatable compromises for peace and stability. Unfortunately, Hariri, like his father, is still a Saudi tool, used by the Saudis to obstruct unity and destabilize Lebanese politics . .

    • RedBaron9495

      Syria are not fighting a war against another Arab country…..they are fighting Islamic Jihadi terrorists from 80+ countries hired as proxy armies for the Saudis, UK,France, Qatar & USA.
      The Turks hired and trained their own MB & Turkmen terrorists.

  • Serious

    This man is just super stupid. If Hezbollah is in Syria, Iraq, … is to protect Lebanon.

    • Bru

      He is just corrupt and repeats what his masters (on whose payroll he is) say.

    • Rob

      Lebanese PM Sad Hariri works for America, Israel and Saudi Arabia. He is a traitor. He wants that Whole Middle East occupied by Zionist America, Israel and KSA.

  • Serious

    Go use your f…. american armed cessna to protect Lebanon when israel will attack you. XD.

      Israel’s Air Force will bomb innocent civilians and infrastructure again, but in addition to its ground troops being humiliated as they were in 2006, Israel’s cities, military bases and infrastructure will come under a barrage of tens of thousands of powerful missiles that will cause unimaginable damage and deaths.

      • Serious

        Hariri is working hard to let israel bomb lebanese people and prevent hezbollah to respond.

        • Barba_Papa

          Well, if you can say one good thing about this man is that he’s loyal to whoever bought him. Once bought he stays bought.There are so many unreliable corrupt people in this world it’s refreshing to see someone who is both corrupt and reliable.

          • Serious

            He is scared to be killed by his master if he change his side.

            Good point, I withdraw my comment 😀

  • Attrition47

    “Ooh-aah Hezbollah! Sing ooh-aah Hezbollah!” Let’s hope that Hariri is going through the motions and it all blows over. I suggest that they all go down the Winchester.

    Mr. Harriri u are telling the Arab should not help innocent Arab from terriost.. it means Harriri is not Arab he is Zionist. Syria /Iraq/yemen are all Arab they are in problem and Hezbollah helped them to save their people which is Arab.

    they must be removed from these positons (by us who are fighting them and only by us ) in order to get international peace progress prosperity and a good better and more positive dialogue between all countries and their peoples who their own peoples will lead and decide what to do by and for themselves. manage what their internal and foreign affairs to other countries and people’s would be and not led by some private zionists’s monopoly organisation who wages wars on whoever they want and on behalf of whoever they control and whoever bans rothschild influence and rothschild’s-controlled banks into their country!

    should such a future international peace progress proccess dialoge between countires is to be then israHell turkey saudi arabia eritrea/ethiopia and pkk-rojava-peshmerga-kurdistan could be excluded because of their evil role of their tyranny and the logic of them even not being officialy recognised as countries (or maybe even by then they would already cease to exist before that) but rather occupiers of stolen lands by wars of aggression who occupy arab Palestine land and other neighbouring arab countries’s lands and their natural resources assets illegally from wars of aggression like e.g. Yemen and Somalia afghanistan with daesh and AQAP muslim-brotherhood-extremists and taliban and other plots of the the mossadistic so called “alliance of periphery” with their puppet collaborators alCIAda and MI6 .

    all of Western Sahara and its people will be freed from the corrupt dynasty government of morocco’s illegal occupation which has a long history of collaborating with the zionists’s mossad and will be a recognised country by all nations ( hassan II and the mossad were behind Mehdi Ben Barka’s dissapperance / kidnap / assassination !

      Syria’s a rubble pile cripple like the Donbass….
      Putin cuts deals which give Israel US NATO traction in the game.

      Erdogan shoots down Russian Su 24, 
      Turk psychotic episode. ..assassinate Russian Ambassador. 
      Erdogan son is connected with ISUS stolen oil from Iraq and Syria. 
      Turks pay ISUS cash for oil tankers bringing into Turkey stolen oil. 
      Turks based and trained and armed Takfiri mercs…probably 50,000+ passed thru Turkey on route to Syria and Iraq to do their Evil. 

      Result…..Erdogan invades Syria, …occupies a portion of the NW,…Putin says nothing. 
      Putin signs Turk stream nat gas pipeline deal with Erdogan. 
      Sells Turkey S 400,…while cheating Iran for a decade at Netanyahu demand, ..and Iran only gets old S 300 system.. 

      Netanyahu sits on more Stolen Syrian Golan. ….gets deconfliction agreement with Putin,…..Putin says nothing about Israel illegal annex of more Golan. 
      Never confronts Netanyahu to withdraw from Golan as per several UNSCRS. 
      Putin never warmed up his S 400s to shoot down IAF jets who attacked Syrian military, Hezbollah and IRGC for years, …Putin never said nothing about Israel’s overt aggression. 

      Can the above be True?….is Syria a client state of Russia? .or is Putin some master 
      Dictator who focuses on Profits first. …allegiance/ moral compass second. 

      Kurd/SDF and US stole the Tabqa Dam on the Euphrates, …stole everything east of the Euphrates, 
      Putin Said nothing : ) 

      I watched Russia do nothing as poor Libya was clobbered by US/Nato. 
      Putin did nothing as US pummeled occupied Iraq. 
      Occupied Afghanistan. .. 
      and then waltzed in years later to play some jaded game in Syria where Russia tests their weapons while sending Syria old Soviet era junk weapons, 
      And look the other way, …wink wink,…as Everyone except the Marshall Islands piled into to Syria to bomb it and genocide it’s people. 

      Donbass is a cripple getting arty by Poroshenko and Ukronazi. ….Putin does nothing. 

      Clearly the Rothschilds globalists control the game, 
      Putin and Trump are both**…. chumps of the system**. ….criminals both ,
      as per the intrigues of their past and present.

          • Tudor Miron

            Keep up your valuable work Brad :) But ou should work harder so people could actually go blind to the obvious fact that Putin is the actual reason that Assad is still in power and Syria is still there. But yes! Kike puppet my ass :)

          • RedBaron9495

            You have zero clues about Putin
            If it were not for Russian, Iranian & Hezbollah intervention…..Syrian Govt might have fallen!
            It’s the Americans & British that constantly giving the Jews a blow-job…..it’s has been that way for centuries.

      • Tommy Jensen

        I understand your frustation. But its a difficult game, even for Russia.
        Russia with 1/20 military budget of US cannot from an enormous pressure in East-Ukraine and weak position, resolve everything toward US/NATO 75 countries Coalition in this complicated political game in Syria and ME.
        There were 100 different radical militant groups in Syria when Russia arrived. USA was about to invade and take Russia´s port in Syria.
        The US Coalition was laughing at Russia, thinking Putin would break his neck and Russia´s economy would break down by the heavy load of endless war in Syria.
        Thats why the US Coalition allowed Russia into Syria in the first place.
        Think about how difficult it must have been to trick US/NATO and everybody bit by bit to accept that Russia got more and more space and influence in Syria.
        Russia shot down US missiles against Damascus in 2013, 2 years before they entered Syria.
        Libya was on Medvedev´s part, in the time where Russia still believed in peasement.

        The S-300 case I agree with you it seem odd that Iran and Syria not long time ago got some heavy anti-air systems from Russia, and its still a mysterium why Russia wants to keep these two countries weak and strenghten Saudi and Turkey with S-400.
        But, considering the extremely intelligent maneuvring Russia did up until to day, they may have some very good reasons.

    “Hezbollah is trying to kill me so I fled to Sauds and resign from being a PM :'((((”
    *a few weeks later*
    “IT WAS JUST A PRANK, BRO, I DON’T ACTUALLY RESIGN, also I’m back at home despite being afraid of being killed by Hezbollah. Also, Hezbollah, who I am afriad will kill me, better accept my demands or I will go and resign for real this time!!!”

      Money… plain and simple. Sociopaths and psychopaths care NOTHING about others, just about filling their pockets, but they are ruthless & determined & clever so often rise to positions of power in business & politics.

      Additionally, the Deep State likes to employ these fuckers and implant them into leadership roles within international institutions so as to corrupt them and bend them to their will and serve as policy tools. UN, WB, IMF, OPCW, IOC etc etc etc. Under their “leadership” these institutions serve hidden interests rather than the official core mission.

      I live to see Riyadh become a glassy plain of vitrified slag, with Tel Aviv to follow a minute later.

  • Lazy Gamer

    Instead of threat to his own life it is actually the participation of Hezbollah in other countries which is the actual reason for his actions. While it is indeed the right of a state to forbid its citizens from getting involved in the wars of others, it is also expected from state leaders to work for protecting the sovereignty of their country.
    It’s kind of a weighing of risks for them. Do they fight over there so it doesn’t reach their home or to keep their heads down, forget dignity and claims, and hope for the best that war is not started against them or a mix of both with plausible deniability as an option? My assessment is that its not a question of if but when.
    As a leader, Hariri is more focused on self rather than on country. Going so far as to risk paralysis of his country. Maybe he should have the decency to let others more capable, step in.

  • wwinsti

    At what point does tragedy turn to farce? You can only threaten to resign so many times. Retracting your first resignation only makes things look sillier.

  • Joe

    Why is Harriri so critically important?

    So what if he resigns?

    • Ivan Freely

      IMO, it’s because Hariri has the support of Sunnis (or at least pro-Saudi Arabia).

  • Gary Sellars

    Saad Hariri is a butt-licking slave of the Wahabbi medieval regime. Hezbollah should stop fighting Wahabbi terror groups in neighbouring states? Is this fuckstick for real?

    Does this clown have no shame????

  • Thegr8rambino

    Hurry up and resign then you daeshbag!!!

  • Carol Davidek-Waller

    Hariri is a Saudi lap dog (as well as holding dual citizenship). Now broke after making his fortune from lucrative building contracts from the House of Saud, he’s more than willing to dance to their tune. Meanwhile the new clown princes rattles his saber and threatens his neighbors.

  • Bob

    Saudi new boy bin-Salman Jnr has so far given impression of an impulsive actor. Saudi’s had major asset in Lebanon – the dual Saudi-Lebanese national and Sunni Prime Minister Hariri. Within Lebanon itself Hezbollah have been politically ascendant for some time. But rather than maintain and deploy their strategic Hariri asset within this environment, bin-Salman Jnr tried to go nuclear with it. The clear intent was to create sectarian division and conflict within Lebanon – and foment further action from the external US-Israeli axis. It failed, and Hariri now appears both a Saudi hostage and stooge. Should Hariri carry-on the Saudi charade, by resuming office with constant further threats to resign over Hezbollah, he will simply sideline himself as an obvious spoiler agent. It appears so far, that bin-Salman Jnr is no Geo-strategist.

  • Wahid Algiers

    Cry Hariri baby cry.

  • dutchnational

    In a way the position of Hezbollah within Lebanon a few years ago is very similar to that of SDF within Syria at present.

    Will SDF too have thousands of fighters in other countries in a few years?

    • Bob

      The presumption, and conceit, that the SDF will still exist in few years is kind of amusing.

  • Angelo Cinarelli

    I lived for two years in Lebanon, I would like to say to Ezbollah thank you for what they did in Syria against ISIS. I think Hariri is just a Saudi slave. Anyway the main problem are always the criminal Sionist.
