Lebanese president calls Israeli attacks “declaration of war”

Lebanese President Michel Aoun on Monday described the weekend Israeli attacks on Beirut’s southern suburb of Dahya and the eastern border region as a “declaration of war.” He said they violate UN Security Council Resolution 1701 that ended the second Israeli-Lebanon war in 2006. “We are entitled to resort to our right to defend our sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, Aoun said. Israeli Cabinet Minister Yuval Steinitz replied that the Lebanese president has only himself to blame for allowing Hizballah to turn his country into a huge arsenal for massing rockets aimed at Israel.

    I completely agree, Lebanon has right to defend his sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity against the Hezbollah invaders from Syria. But, it took him quite a long time to realize this. Now is the good moment to throw Hezbollah out and forge an alliance with the only possible trusty friend in the region – Israel.

        Salman Rushdie explained in his book Satanic Verses about the satanic muslim religion of apes and pigs.
        muslim criminals sentenced Salman Rushdie to death because he explained how the muslims worship Satan in their satanic mosques especially under the ayatolahs.
        So no doubt the hezballah pigs fromm teheran were defeated last night

    Keeping Hezbollah within Leb’s borders is a declaration of war–hence the reason we are still at war with Lebanon.

      Each independent country has a right to govern its self.

      Lets not forget that Hezbollah was formed in response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Hezbollah then managed to force Israel to withdraw and postpone / re-plan your Greater Israel (from the Nile to the Euphrates) successfully forced Israel. Its purpose then became to provide an effective fighting force to keep Israel for coming back.

      Thats why you are so desperate to disarm, destroy or control from the shadows any who stand in the way of this Zionist Talmudic Dream.

      Only problem the Lebanese people are tough and gave you a really good spanking in 2006. So no doubt Bibi is going to go crying to the International Community now that his Polling Ploy blew up (as planned by Bibi) and Hezbollah said they going to hit back.

      Fearporn for the Bibi election win and to keep him out of PRISON lol

        Presently I give this rectification all by myself, with no coercion what so ever:
        Remove and forget my initial mistake “Hezbollah was formed in response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon”.

        Instead, please read “Hezbollah was founded in the early 1980s as part of an Iranian effort to aggregate a variety of militant Lebanese Shia groups into a unified organization and its forces were trained and organized by a contingent of 1,500 Revolutionary Guards that arrived from Iran with permission from the Syrian government, which was in occupation of Lebanon at the time. All this happened 25 years before the Lebanon-Israel war of 2006”

        Please note, this error was not intended to forge a nasty argument, it was a mistake, it happens sometimes to me, all the time.
