US Siege Persists: Lebanon Prevented from Importing Iran’s Fuel Donation

Al-Manar | November 9, 2022

After several months of vagueness, the US administration announced clearly that sanctions will be imposed on Lebanon if it approves the Iranian fuel donation, according to a report posted by Al-Akhbar daily.

The Lebanese newspaper mentioned that the remarks made by the Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, Barbara Leaf, indicated that the US siege on Lebanon persists.

Al-Akhbar added that the US vague stances pertaining the Iranian fuel donation during the past months aimed only at sustaining the positive atmosphere of the maritime border demarcation.

It is worth noting that Hezbollah secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah mentioned during his latest speech that the Americans will not allow Lebanon to import the Egyptian gas, Jordanian electric power, and Iranian fuel.

According to Al-Akhbar, the Lebanese caretaker prime minister, Najib Mikati, followed the US vagueness with time consuming steps, including sending a technical team to Tehran to study the fuel specifications.

The newspaper added that, after the energy minister Walid Fayyad sent a report about the Iranian fuel specifications to Mikati, the latter contacted the US administrations whose various offices told him that Washington rejects granting Beirut any waiver in this regard.

    Arrogant swines, aren’t they? “Will not allow”, indeed. I look forward to a world in which the Americans do not have the power to dictate to other countries what they may or may not import or export. We are moving in that direction, to be sure, but it may be some time yet before we get there.

    • “Will not allow”, And the USA accuses Vlad Putin of interfering in American Elections (which are completely corrupted anyway). America’s “1%” have complete control over who gets elected, and can easily get rid of any recalcitrant Presidents or Politicians. (does the name Cinthia McKinney ring a bell?)

  3. It’s past time for the Hezbollah to take the reigns and show the USAllillusions the door. With the arrogant words of this ugly imbecile it would make sense they/israel were behind the Beirut port bombing of grain silos 4 Aug 2020. Take back your sovereignty NOW!!! Shut down the enemies US Embassy and American University and clear them out. Tell them where to stick their illusions of sanctions and get on with your lives with whatever it takes. REMEMBER THAT THEY ARE BROKE! Let their reign of terror be pushed to the sea! VIVA HEZBOLLAH

    • That explosion was reported in the Western MSM as a spontaneous eruption of Ammonium Nitrate (which is a commonly used agricultural fertiliser, around the World).
      However, Ammonium Nitrate will NOT explode without a detonator, so, it was not a spontaneous occurrence.
      Now, who in that part of the World, would have the motive, and the opportunity to cause such a massive explosion? CIA? Mossad? I’m surprised that Iran was not blamed in the Western Media. (Maybe they were?)

      • Brian when it happened I was glued to twitter and youtube to watch the latest uploads. There was a video that clearly showed a missile that was shot through the first smoke cloud that cause the second massive explosion. Of course I can’t find it now. I saw a video where locals said that they saw a plane flying overhead just when it happened. I can’t remember if it was more than one. For sure it was not the scenario that was given about fertilizer. Just like with the Sabra and Shatila massacre of 1982…there are too many enemies inside Lebanon (the US being #1 and Saudi Arabia #2 all being allied with their biggest enemy israel).

    • 1982 is also the year in which the ministry of hasbara was founded.

      I remember two Jews on the television with their ‘objective’ dialogue as it was announced and presented. The first one represented Israel and the second one had a sign in front of him with the words “Middle East Expert” to make it look as if he represented the Palestinians. Nothing showed that he was an expert as he only made vilifying and stereotypical comments about Palestinians. Then they agreed with each other: “We don’t have to talk with the Palestinians.”

      I understood from a book from Edward Said that he has seen the same when he was in Europe. He must have been baffled. I would understand it only many years later.

      In that same year they opened multiple restaurants in my country with the name “Israel Inn”. The message of both actions was clear: don’t talk to Palestinians, and we are your friends.”

      Could it be that Israel had something to hide? (wink, wink)
