BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri reportedly told his political party this week that he refuses to visit Syria and meet with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.

Citing Hariri’s speech to the Future Movement on Tuesday, the Middle East Monitor reported that the Lebanese premier refuses to travel to Syria and meet with Assad, despite the fact it may cost him his job.

“It is impossible that I visit Syria, not now and not in the future… and if Lebanon’s interest requires so, then you could find someone else,” Hariri reportedly stated.

Hariri has been a long-time supporter of the Syrian opposition and has often been outspoken about his desire to see Assad removed from power.

President Assad isn’t dying to meet Hariri anyway. Saudis might have called Hariri & instructed him not to meet since Assad is being supported by Hezbollah & Iran.

Anyways Assad has more important things to do than meet Hariri.

Note that Saudis are not the only cowards using proxies : Turkey, Iran and many others do the same… Cowardice is very trendy nowadays… Even ISIS is tooled (by Iran) to achieve their geopolitical goals while Iranian environment and economy are taking the plunge.

Abu Bark at the Moon said : “long live the righteous mujahedin and Saudi Arabia” => LOL! ISIS is banned in Saudi Arabia! Go say your stupid praise of ISIS there and you’ll lose your head a 2nd time, this time it will be at chop-chop square 😉 BTW, Salman and MBS are not very into supporting shithadists of ANY kind! Bandar and Turki have been “retired” and look at the princes that have been arrested then charged with gigantic fines last year… In many cases, this wasn’t really about corruption, it was about the funding of terrorists! One got… Read more »

So should be Nasrallah and Nabih Berri since both have sold Lebanon to Iran… Isn’t the definition of high-treason being “selling your country to another”? Thanks to them, Lebanon is an Iranian puppet that might end on fire and invaded by Israel any day. Netanyahu even said that next time Hezbollah starts a war on Israel, Lebanon will return to the stone age… And guess what? Israel has absolutely the means to do this! I won’t extend about this since this technology is 100% classified in my country, just speaking about it could lead me straight to jail but yeah,… Read more »

It doesn’t prevents to be lucid, unlike many here, ROFL! I really ask myself how many anti-Semites and anti-West here would like to live under Iranian sharia, thus getting ailed, whipped if not hanged for things they are doing on a daily basis. Actually, ethnically speaking, I’m Franco-Celtico-Germanic 🙂 BTW, if you want to speak about racial bullshït, from your beloved Adolf POV, I’m an Aryan… Note that the Muslim Brotherhood- funded Arab translation of ‘Mein Kampf’ forgot his views about Arabs : for your Adolf, since all the BS you’re fed about the Jews were cooked by his propaganda… Read more »

Sorry, I don’t read your hasbara jooshit. But I really like this, my “french” friend: “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel.” “In Israel, death has no dominion over them… With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. “This is his servant… That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.” “Why are gentiles needed? They will… Read more »

The Zionist Stern gang also did not care about Nazi views of Jews.The Nazis considered the Soviets “subhuman” yet the red banner proudly flew atop the Reichstag.
On the other hand your “superior-race”, well we all know how it went. So enjoy your racial “superiority”.
P.S. Haj Amin al-Husseini was not Arafat’s uncle.
And you were describing Saudi Arabia.

DBS, It is better Israel stays out of Syria & Lebanon for its own sake & survival. If Israel gets involved Iran is already under tremendous economical pressure and has already seen its riyal devalued and loosing ground against the USD. Iranians are now dead tired of Rouhani & Khameni basically the Mullahs and Military. The Iranians have now started questioning their own government & military about their involvement in Syrian & Yemeni war and the death of so many Iranian soldiers asking why their country is spending so much on these wars when Iranians have so many other problems… Read more »

Threatening other countries with genocide is a crime-except if you are Zionist scum (as it seems).

Hariri met with President Assad last year unofficially , he had no pangs of conscience then. He rather wants to do a ”heroic” exit from the Premiership , since his party’s election results were poor , 10 seats less than in the previous Parliament. He cannot stay Prime Minister anymore anyway.

Good point. Hariri has no friends in the closest neighboring state (Syria) or Israel or Turkey. He is not loved by Hezb or Druz. He is an anomaly and does not represent Lebanon well.

He should visit Saudi Arabia so that he can be treated like a dog there and be kept under arrest
