Lebanese Government Collapses After Hezbollah Ministers Resign


Published January 12, 2011
| Associated Press


BEIRUT –  Lebanon’s government collapsed Wednesday after Hezbollah and its allies resigned from the Cabinet in a dispute with Western-backed factions over upcoming indictments in the 2005 assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.


A U.N.-backed tribunal investigating the truck bombing that killed Hariri and 22 others is widely expected to name members of the Shiite militant group, which many fear could re-ignite sectarian violence that has erupted repeatedly in the tiny nation.


Hezbollah’s walkout ushers in the country’s worst political crisis since 2008 in one of the most volatile corners of the Middle East.


Lebanon’s 14-month-old government was an uneasy coalition linking bitter rivals: a Western-backed bloc led by Hariri’s son Saad and Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran and maintains an arsenal that far outweighs that of the national army.


Disputes over the tribunal have paralyzed the government for months, with Hezbollah denouncing the court as a conspiracy by the U.S. and Israel and urging the prime minister to reject any of its findings. But Hariri has refused to break cooperation with the Netherlands-based tribunal.


Now, the chasm between the two sides is deepening with Hezbollah accusing Hariri’s bloc of bowing to the West. Hezbollah’s ministers timed their resignations to coincide with Hariri’s meeting with President Barack Obama in Washington, forcing him to meet the American president as a caretaker prime minister.


Western governments have worked to strengthen the central government since Israel and Hezbollah fought a devastating 34-day war in 2006, but they also have expressed concern about the balance of power with the heavily armed militant group.


The U.S. classifies Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.


A White House statement said Obama commended Hariri for his “steadfast leadership and efforts to reach peace, stability and consensus in Lebanon under difficult circumstances.”


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Hezbollah’s actions are “a transparent effort … to subvert justice and to undermine Lebanon’s sovereignty and independence.”


“No country should be forced to choose between justice and stability,” Clinton said while traveling in Doha, Qatar. “The Lebanese people deserve both.”


Hariri’s office had no immediate comment on the walkout that brought down his government, but they said he was heading to France to meet French President Sarkozy before heading back to Beirut. France, Lebanon’s former colonial power, is a major player in Lebanese politics.


The immediate trigger for the Hezbollah withdrawal was the failure of talks between Syria and Saudi Arabia, a Hariri ally, to try to find a compromise over the tribunal.


There had been few details about the direction of the Syrian-Saudi initiative, but the talks were lauded as a potential Arab breakthrough, rather than a solution offered by Western powers.


“This Cabinet has become a burden on the Lebanese, unable to do its work,” Jibran Bassil, who is resigning his post as energy minister, said at a news conference, flanked by the other Hezbollah-allied ministers who are stepping down. “We are giving a chance for another government to take over.”


Bassil said the ministers decided to resign after Hariri “succumbed to foreign and American pressures” and turned his back on the Syrian-Saudi efforts.


Calls to the tribunal seeking comment Wednesday were not immediately returned.


U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon “is monitoring closely developments in Lebanon, where the situation is fast evolving,” U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said.


Hariri formed the current national unity government in November 2009 after his bloc narrowly defeated the Hezbollah-led opposition in elections. But it has struggled to function, and in the past two months it has met only for a few minutes because of the dispute over the tribunal.


Violence has been a major concern as tensions rise in Lebanon, where Shiites, Sunnis and Christians each make up about a third of the country’s 4 million people. In 2008, sectarian clashes killed 81 people and nearly plunged Lebanon into another civil war.


Rami Khouri, director of the Issam Fares Institute of Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut, said he does not expect any immediate widescale violence, particularly after the destruction seen in 2008.


“I would think that the fears of sectarian violence are less now than they might have been a few years ago … People are working overtime to avoid violence,” he said.


Rafik Hariri’s assassination in a massive truck bombings both stunned and polarized Lebanese. He was Lebanon’s most prominent politician in the years after Lebanon’s 1975-1990 civil war — a Sunni who was a hero to his own community and backed by many Christians who sympathized with his efforts in the last few months of his life to reduce Syrian influence in the country.


A string of assassinations of anti-Syrian politicians and public figures followed, which U.N. investigators have said may have been connected to the Hariri killing.


The tribunal has not said who it will indict, but Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah has said he has information that members of his group will be named.


Now that the government has fallen, President Michel Suleiman will likely hold a meeting with the parliament speaker marking the beginning of consultations with lawmakers to name a prime minister-designate.


It is possible that Saad Hariri will get the largest numbers of backers given that he heads the largest bloc in parliament, but he could not build a coalition again without appealing to Hezbollah and its allies.


“Politics is a game of negotiations,” Khouri said. “Whoever gets the best deal wins.”

The ‘ARAB LOBBY’ = most powerful in the world (e. g. U.S. lost to Qatar)

December 7, 2010

The ‘ARAB LOBBY’ = most powerful in the world (e. g. U.S. lost to Qatar)

Still doubting the ‘power’ of the ARAB LOBBY, after the giant U.S. lost to ‘bad sportsmen’ of Qatar?

Think again!

US World Cup snub shows Qatari lobbying power | ProSports Colorado Dec 2, 2010 … In Qatar, FIFA officials saw an opportunity to accomplish two goals in … The reality is that Qatar is the uber-elite of the Arab world, …

http://www.prosportscolorado.com/2010/12/02/3839-us-world-cup-snub-shows-qatari-lobbying-power/

And this is just a tip of the iceberg of global Arab lobby. Of course it’s not just about sports.

Now, understand how the [international arena, like: the] United Nations and Amnesty work, and for whom – most of the time.

Or Human Rights Watch’s crippling of U.S. security or its failure to criticize strong enough the human rights abuses, racism and Islamic apartheid in the Muslim world, yet, is so quick to categorize Israelis struggle againt genocidal Arab-Muslim bigots as “violations.”

Hezbollah / Islamic Iran in Latin America

June 10, 2010

Brazil objects sanctions – Islamic Iran / Hezbollah’s roots in Brazil (& Latin America)

Quote:
UN approves Iran sanctions [9 Jun 2010] … UN approves Iran sanctions. Twelve Security Council members endorse fourth round of sanctions against Tehran; Turkey and Brazil vote against proposal, Lebanon abstains; decision marks compromise between US demands, Russia’s and China’s conditions…

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3902831,00.html

Turkey? We all know that the current Islamic party’s Mr. Erdogan was looking for an excuse to go against Israel, especially since the Gaza operation, the Flotilla Jihad boat incident only helped him in his anti-Israelism campaign.

Quote:
Analysis: Erdogan’s harsh Israel rhetoric tests …2 Jun 2010 … The AKP emerged the leading party in local elections last year with 39 percent of the vote, … "Turkey is moving closer to an Islamic perspective with this government," …

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/jun/08/turkey-jihad-israel-flotilla

The surprise might have been that Brazil was so involved and voicing against the sanctions.

The interesting part was that Lebanon, the home of Iran’s Hezbollah abstained while Brazil objected, Ever thought that Brazil would be more Islamic-appeaser than Russia and China, or worse, being on the opposite side of those nations on a radical-Islam’s issue?

We have to keep in mind that Arabs in Brazil have a "representation" of over 1.5 Million, mostly from Syria and Lebanon.

We all know how Hezbollah is financed, by illegal snuggling, drug trafficking (http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/67377) and blood diamonds… and also through donations by Lebanese merchants in Latin America and in Africa. (http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/hizballah.htm)

Hence, from the fallout in the UN you can see the power of Iran / Hezbollah in Brazil, far greater than in Lebanon.

One expression of affinity with the Islamic world in recent years, came out in the form of a soap-opera (telenovela) called ‘O Clone,’ the Clone, which ran for a long time.

Quote:
(WSJ) RIO DE JANEIRO — As the world turns — possibly toward a clash with Islam — a prime-time soap opera on Brazil’s most popular channel has people hooked on the troubled romance between a Muslim woman and a Catholic man. Soon, people in the U.S. will have the chance to get addicted, too….

‘O Clone,’ a Brazilian soap opera, stars a Muslim woman named Jade… The telenovela unfolds in Brazil and Morocco … (oclone.net/forum/index.php?tid=61&tpg=1)

Major Arab population in Latin America [many are in the textile, perfume business, and other]:

* Brazil (Rio, more than Sao Paolo, though the region Bras (for instance) is very heavy occupied by Arab merchants).

* Honduras.

* Chile.

* Haiti. (Syrian Arabs, though the Haitians have seen little or nothing in aid from them…)

Border areas:

* TBA, Tri Border Area of Paraguay – Brazil – Argentina (famous Hezbollah base).

* Venezuela, many Arabs have financed Hugo Chavez.

* Colombia (especially in the region bordering with Venezuela).

* Between Panama (there was a Hezbollah linked 1994 bombing of an airline in Panama) & Costa Rica (some Hezbollah "activists" have used the central America line to enter the States (A.K.A. ‘Panama-CostaRica-Nicaragua-Honduras-ElSalvador-Guatemala-Mexico-US’, for instance, some Iranian Hezbollah tried to get into Costa Rica with Venezuelan passports… and we all know about Chavez’s passports issuing for Iranians, even Somalis have been caught in Panama’s Darien last year, trying to sneak in the area, in another time, some Somalis have been seen wondering-about in Tapachula – Mexico, P.S. Somali terrorists Islamists al-Shabab are allied with Hezbollah).

Note, though a large portion is Christian, yet:

A- Muslims still have a stronghold among the overall Arab population, (especially when they seek to come out as "Arab heroes." evoking Arab longing/tradition of Salahdin, keep that picture in mind and understand a Lebanese Arab’s willingness to support Hezbollah when approached…) B- Some "christians" care more about supporting Muslim issues than for any Christians anywhere, some have called them "IslamoChristians."

This is not to say that some Arab Christians are not real, honest and pro west.
