What Ban 'forgot'

Hezbullah has denounced a report on progress in the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559 that was issued by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.
Hezbollah issued a statement on Wednesday blasting UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s report on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559 calling it interference in Lebanon’s domestic affairs.

UNSCR 1559 calls for disarming Hezbollah.

This comes after Ban said that Lebanon has been hit by a new climate of uncertainty that could cause instability across the region, adding that Hezbollah’s military strength “creates an atmosphere of intimidation and poses a key challenge to the safety of Lebanese civilians and to the government.”

“I am very concerned by rising political tensions in the country,” Ban said, referring to a growing war of words between Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s coalition and the Iranian-backed Hezbollah group.

“It seems that Ban did not realize that Hezbollah has been at the core of Lebanese politics, through its representation in the parliament and cabinet,” the Hezbollah statement said.

“Ban has forgotten that President Michel Suleiman stated last month at the UN that Lebanon has the right to use all means to liberate its territory,” the statement added.

Hezbollah also said that the UN is “losing its credibility in the world.”
Silly Ban still thinks he's living in the United Nations, where nations don't make war on other nations - to 'liberate' territory or otherwise. Silly Ban believes the language of 1559, which acknowledges that Israel has withdrawn (back in 2000) to the 'blue line' which demarcates the border between Israel and Lebanon, and therefore believes (correctly, as it happens) that there are no more territorial disputes between Israel and Lebanon. Silly Ban has wisely chosen to ignore the OIC-initiated resolution that creates a new territorial dispute between Israel and Lebanon as a pretext for Hezbullah keeping its weapons.

What could go wrong?
