Hezbollah Threatens Protests.

Posted by QB on November 2, 2006

Hezbollah is treatening street protests and call for an early elections if their demands are not met. They are demanding for a “national unity” Cabinet that would give the Islamic militants and their allies veto power over key decisions.

“Our concept of the national unity government is that all the basic forces in Lebanon be in it … actual and serious participation, not an aesthetic participation,” Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s leader, said in a lengthy interview on Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV Tuesday night.

In the same interview, Nasrallah said that “serious negotiations” were taking place over the two Israeli soldiers whose July 12 capture by his militant group sparked the 34-day war.

He said a negotiator appointed by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has been meeting with Hezbollah and Israeli officials. He would not provide details about the negotiations, but told Al-Manar: “We have reached a stage of exchanging ideas, proposals or conditions.”

Nasrallah also warned that any attempts by the beefed-up U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon to disarm Hezbollah would transform the country into another Iraq or Afghanistan. He did not elaborate.

Hezbollah put these demands because they have gained more popular support within Lebanon and in the whole Middle East after Israel’s failed invasion. I had written this after the ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah that I will not be surprised if they take over the control of Lebanon government in next elections. Hasan Nasrallah believes that he has the popular support to win early elections if their demands are not met.

    Is this original content or are you borrowing it? If you are borrowing it, why are you not providing links to the original source or at least citing it? I find it difficult to believe you are writing anything original here…

  2. The last paragraph is my own analysis of this news story. You read this post because you must have not read the news.
