The deaths continue and Lebanese parliamentary speaker, Nabih Berri,(pictured at right) a prominent Shiite who has been negotiating on behalf of Hezbollah, rejected the U.N. resolution draft for cease-fire between Hezbollah and Israel on Sunday.
The proposal, which was expected to go to the floor of the U.N. Security Council early this week, calls for Hezbollah to stop all military operations and for Israel to stop its offensive drive against Lebanon. The proposal would allow Israel to strike back if Hezbollah were to break a cease-fire.
According to Berri the draft resolution is fundamentally tilted in favor of Israel.
"If Israel has not won the war but still gets all this, what would have happened had they won" the war, Berri asked.
All of what? This is typical of the ridiculous and puerile thinking the Arab world; they reject a cease fire agreement which simply says in essence stop the fighting, on the bases that it is tilted in favor of Israel?
Hezbollah is in violation of U.N. resolution 1559 and Hezbollah should not exist, according to that resolution, a resolution which is over two years old, did Berri think of that? Berri as a Hezbollah representative should not be speaking for the Lebanese government he is President of the National Assembly, Speaker of the legislature, not some front man for terrorism, did Berri think of that?
Hezbollah started this war by crossing into Israel and kidnapping Israeli soldiers did Berri think of that? This war did not immediately start even after that Hezbollah provocation, Israel asked for their soldiers back and gave clear indications what the consequences would be if Israeli soldiers were not returned by a date certain and Hezbollah refused.
"Lebanon, all of Lebanon, rejects any talks or any draft resolution that does not include the seven-point government framework," Berri said at a news conference in Beirut.
The seven-point proposal calls for a mutual release of prisoners held by Israeli and Hezbollah and the withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon.
Nabih Berri is acting as an agent for Hezbollah. Hezbollah is in violation of international law by violating U.N. Security Council resolution 1559. Berri is now speaking for the Lebanese government in place of the Lebanese President Emile Lahoud and is demanding terrorist demands on the U.N. in order for Hezbollah to stop aggression against Israel?
There can not be any acquiescence to Hezbollah’s demands. Hezbollah’s demands are unjust and unlawful terrorist demands which should not be considered equally to an internationally recognized sovereign Nation’s request for return of its kidnapped victims. Even if these demands came from the mouth of a Shi'ite Muslim leader who is the Lebanese Speaker of Parliament.
Does Hezbollah’s stance make sense to you? If it does then you are just as warped as the terrorist. Link
