BEIRUT, LEBANON (1030 P.M.) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri issued a statement on Sunday in solidarity with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Hariri’s statement said he stands in solidarity with Saudi Arabia “in the face of the campaigns targeting it.”

“The status of Saudi Arabia in the Arab and international communities places it among the central countries entrusted with the stability of the region and the support of the Arab causes,” he continued.

“The campaigns against it constitute a violation of this stability and an unacceptable call to drag the region towards further negative developments,” he added.

Hariri has been an ally of Saudi Arabia since he entered politics; his family’s company also does a great deal of business inside the Gulf nation.

“…Hariri has been an ally of Saudi Arabia since he entered politics; his family’s company also does a great deal of business inside the Gulf nation….”

The Lebanese Parliament should question him about the medieval policy of the Saudis holding two of his younger children and if he doesn’t have a reasonable answer, suspend him.

And they also should question the Iranian puppet that blackmails the country threatening another civil-war or to provoke Israel into invading for the 3rd time, if they don’t behave as lapdogs to the Iranian shitlamic regime?

At least, with the Gemayels’ Phalanges, Lebanon stood strong.
