During the Arab League conference in Cairo on Friday, the Lebanese Foreign Minister Gibran Bassil asserted that Lebanon will not label Hezbollah as a “terrorist entity” because it was not in line with the Arab anti-terror treaty.

The Lebanese Foreign Minister added that Hezbollah plays an integral role in the country and they enjoy wide-representation across the Lebanese populous.

On Friday, the Arab League decided to designate Hezbollah as a “terrorist entity” after a strong push was made by the Saudi and Qatari delegations to pass this vote.

The Lebanese and Iraqi delegations infuriated the Saudis because they both defended Hezbollah and Hashd Al-Sha’abi to the council of ministers.

Saudi-Zionist alliance? What Saudi-Zionist alliance? Now we can add Qatar to that love of Israel that dares not speak its name.

That would have been like Lebanon calling itself terrorist. There isn’t much in Leb that ISN’T Hezbollah.

According to the Saudis if you are not Wahhabis you are terrorist. If they consider Hezbollah terrorist what do they define the IDF?
