We move sometimes. We send messages to each other. We talk on the phone. Tell me, what can we do?
Don’t forget we are in a state of war and no peace. But it’s very dynamic and challenging compared to the rest of the Arab world.
There was a president imposed by Syria. Our battle… is to have a Lebanese president that we elect.
The Islamic State is a threat to both the moderate Islam headed by Mr. Saad al-Hariri and, of course, for Hezbollah. There is a convergence, an anxiety of a common enemy… which is good.
If I have any advice to give to the Syrian president it is to cooperate for the sake of the investigation or for the sake of uncovering the truth.
The consequence of Mr. Bush’s and Blair’s historic lie that the reason for invading Iraq was weapons of mass destruction, is that everything is being doubted.
The Syrians are trying to say that the Lebanese are not capable of ruling themselves.
The U.S. always needs an enemy. It comes and goes. Today it is Islam. According to this plan or ideology of the born-again Christians who formed an alliance with Zionism, Islam is the monster.
We are very serious about imposing weapons restrictions on the PFLP and other Palestinian groups operating from their camps in Lebanon.
The Syrian regime is helping the insurgency in Iraq and allowing all kinds of militants to come in and out, and go to Iraq to attack random soldiers and innocent people.
There is a racist attack against Muslims and Arabs, Algerians, Moroccans, and Tunisians in France.
We are all happy when U.S. soldiers are killed week in and week out. The killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq is legitimate and obligatory.
Lebanon will be engulfed again in a huge power game that will last quite a long time. This is the tragic destiny of Lebanon.
The violence and burnings in Lebanon were the work of Syrian soldiers and workers dressed in civilian clothes.
I condemn what happened in Madrid, but it is suspicious. If tomorrow there will be another bombing, in France for example, who will gain power? Of course not Jacques Chirac, but Le Pen.
I know something quite sure. We’ll never have peace with this Syrian regime. They’ll never give us relief, and we’ll never forget that.
