Hizbullah Gets 1/3 of Lebanese Govt

(IsraelNN.com) Hizbullah is likely to get 10 out of 30 seats in Lebanon's next government, according to international news agencies. The Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist group has been offered one-third of the cabinet under a power-sharing proposal that attempts to bring together Lebanon's coalition and opposition.

Fifteen of the 30 seats would go to the anti-Syrian parliamentary majority. The remaining five seats would be given to politicians selected by Lebanese President Michel Suleiman.

Suleiman is currently reviewing the power-sharing proposal.

The proposed cabinet list was assembled by prime minister-designate Saad Hariri, head of the anti-Syrian majority. Hariri has been working to form a cabinet for more than 70 days. During the process, he has frustrated Hizbullah leaders by rejecting several of the group's proposed ministers. The list announced Monday does not have Hizbullah approval.

In August, Hariri said that “national interest” required that Hizbullah be represented in the next government “whether Israel likes it or not.”

Israeli leaders have warned that if Hizbullah joins the Lebanese government, Israeli will hold the entire country responsible if Hizbullah attacks. During the Second Lebanon War, when Hizbullah was in the Lebanese opposition, Israel targeted Hizbullah while attempting to avoid harm to Lebanese military outposts or other state apparatus.


Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ. (Philemon 1:3)
