Ban Ki-Moon urges Hezbullah to give up its weapons

As part of his latest report on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has urged Hezbullah (whose leader, Hassan Nasrallah, is pictured at top left) to give up its weapons.
The presence of weapons belonging to Hizbullah and other non-state organizations is a serious threat to Lebanese security, says UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

In the latest Security Council report on the implementation of Resolution 1559, Ban said that weapons outside the control of the Lebanese Army “constitute a challenge to the government of Lebanon’s exclusive military authority” and “could eventually lead to the resumption of hostilities unless immediately addressed.”


Ban outlined arsenals still held by Hizbullah and “non-Lebanese armed groups” as “a direct challenge to the sovereignty of the Lebanese state,” and requested that Hizbullah comply immediately with relevant Security Council resolutions: a move he says is “in the best interests of all Lebanese.”

“The threat that armed groups and militias pose to the sovereignty and stability of the Lebanese state cannot be overstated,” he added. “All arms in Lebanon must be brought under the sole and unique control of the Government of Lebanon.”
Good luck with that.

He also accused Israel of violating Resolution 1559 for not withdrawing from the northern half of Ghajar (the townspeople don't want us to withdraw because it will split the town) and condemned Israel for its reconnaissance overflights of Lebanon without which Israel would not know where Hezbullah's weapons are situated.

Aren't you glad your taxes are paying for Ban Ki-Moon's salary?

Hezbollah must die laughing knowing the UN hates the Jews and Israel. If I was Nasrallah, I would be amused at Ban Moon's slap on the the wrist.

What could go wrong indeed
