Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun has told a visiting American delegation that Beirut rejects the US recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights because it includes Lebanese areas annexed by Israel.

The delegation included Republican US Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Vicente Gonzalez. Aoun said that Lebanon has the right to work on regaining this lined “by all available means,” AP reports.

Arab countries unanimously rejected the recent US recognition of Israeli control over the Golan, seized from Syria in 1967 and annexed in 1981.

Lebanon fears for its claim to the Chebaa Farms and adjacent Kfar Chouba hills, which Israel occupied alongside Golan.

Israel had occupied south Lebanon, but after withdrawing in 2000, remained in these strategic areas.

ALERT……Representative from Illinois, Adam Kinzinger met with FSA Rebel commander who had known ties to ISIS and said ISIS was his brother. Not sure why AMN does not include this important information. This has been well documented. Kinzinger another Graham/ McCain.

And Tulsi Gabbard met with Assad ?? And you’re relating stuff from 2014AD. Still not noticed that there never have been enough help to tip the balance but just enough to give false hope to the rebels that they can win… So in the end, all jihadists get eliminated? And do not think that Putin, Jiping and others weren’t in the plot : they let Chechen and Uyghur shithadists move to Turkey in order to join Syria too ? I recognise it wasn’t nice for Syria but think about the nightmare it’d be to get all these creeps through police… Read more »

So now Chebaa Farms are Lebanese again? I thought Lebanon “gave” these to Syria… In fact, legally speaking, since the French mandate did mapping errors there -there was no GPS in those days-, the Chebaa Farms were forgotten from both the Lebanese and the Syrian maps!!! There is a similar case between Egypt and Sudan where the area is also legally stateless. In fact, Chebaa Farms need a queen, so she’ll be the queen of Chebaa ?. This will surely infuriate the highly phalocrat Arab-League and all the mussie bigots who consider women only worth half as men. Who cares… Read more »
