Lebanon president warns of the consequences of Israel threats

MEMO | January 10, 2019

Lebanese President Michel Aoun yesterday warned of the “Israeli threats” which could lead to new wars, displacement and ethnic cleansing.

Speaking before members of the diplomatic corps accredited to Lebanon in the capital Beirut, Aoun said that “peace does not take place while deals are made at the expense of the refugee who was expelled from his land and his identity was stolen”.

“Peace does not come at the expense of manipulating demography and changing the geographical and social parameters of countries. Peace does not result from deepening racism and rejecting the other.”

The Lebanese president was referring to US President Donald Trump’s proposed Middle East peace plan dubbed the “deal of the century”.

In regards Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Aoun said the international community’s position is not clear about whether they should return to their country, warning that the proposed positions which link the refugees’ return to finding a political solution to the Syrian crisis is “worrying” because a solution could take a long time.

More than 1.2 million Syrian refugees live in Lebanon, a majority of them in areas that experience economic, political and security crises.

  1. Lebanon should remember, of course) that they are one of two countries still on the Pentagon’s list of “7 countries in 5 years”…..The ‘5 years has blown out somewhat, but, be ready, because Israel hate you and intend to devastate your country like the other Arab countries around the Middle East.
    Make sure you kick their asses out, just like you did last time……(But, be warned, they will get the USA to do their ‘Dirty Work’ for them…….as they do.

  2. Blessed words by President Aoun. Viva Lebanon in all its diversity and humanity!

    I understand that many refugees are returning to Syria, as President Assad busies himself in re-grouping and re-building his horribly torn country. I hope that many/most of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon will, soonest, feel and be enabled to return. They are all my brothers and sisters, as I hang my head in shame at what the colonialist ideology of Zionism, aided and enabled by my own cowardly and complicit country, has done to Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and the entire region.

  3. I am firmly persuaded that the day will come when all Palestinians will be free to return to live in their ancestral homeland. The Zionist are self-important blowhards, but in reality they are cowards and serial bunglers. Their enterprise of mass theft and genocide cannot last.

    • Amen. Thank you. In addition, somewhere deep in that collective Zionist psychosis is a component of guilt that would cause the whole to implode and disintegrate if it were ever forced to confront real-world reality and acknowledge that, in this flawed realm, THERE ARE NO “CHOSEN PEOPLE.”
