New Lebanese government dominated by Hizballah

Prime Minister Saad Hariri heads the new Lebanese government set up on Thursday after a nine-month stalemate over the pro-Iranian Shiite Hizballah’s demands. The breakthrough came about after he and the other political factions bowed to Hassan Nasrallah’s demands for a dominant Hizballah presence in the cabinet and control of the more powerful portfolios. He was backed by his close ally the Christian Maronite President Michel Aoun.

    Ideally, the list of Syrian targets in the Hezbollah Republic should be divided in 3 equal parts of a week of bombing each. Michel Aoun is prisoner, he’s the good guy.

    At least Israel won’t feel bad bombarding Lebanon since it is mostly Hizbollah…

    In the next war, when Israel destroys all of the high-value targets in Beirut, nobody should wonder why. Lebanon should tread lightly. Next time the destruction won’t be like ’82. It will be 100x worse.

    I wish that Lebanon will fall into a civil war, be destroyed, maybe from the ashes a new Lebanon will emerge, one that fights terror, NOT supporting it !

    When you import antisemitism in the form of people who believe in and were brought up worshiping antisemitism even though they had never met a Jew happy wheels (because they evicted or killed them many generations ago) the you get antisemitism.
