Hezbollah says they won’t hand weapons over to the Lebanese government. But, what they will do is, refrain from exhibiting them publicly.
What the ?
Hizbullah will not hand over its weapons to the Lebanese government but rather refrain from exhibiting them publicly, according to a new compromise that is reportedly brewing between Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Seniora and Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah.
The UN cease-fire resolution specifically demands the demilitarization of the area south of the Litani river. The resolution was approved by the Lebanese cabinet.
In a televised address on Monday night, Nasrallah declared that now was not the time to debate the disarmament of his guerrilla fighters, saying the issue should be done in secret sessions of the government to avoid serving Israeli interests.
Riiiiight. That way, the public won’t see how Nasrallah slaps around Lebanese government officials.
This whole thing is laughable. While U.N. members pat themselves on the back in congratulations over their diplomatic prowess, no one on the ground in the region believes the cease fire will stick. Its reliability is predicated upon the fallacy that Hezbollah is a political party with diplomats who desire peace. They aren’t a state, they aren’t a political party, and they have no diplomats. They are puppet terrorists controlled by Syria and Iran. Their mission is to take out Israel, as in, kill every living thing and rid the territory of any reminder of Jewish existence.
And you can’t negotiate around that.
