      it’s been understood that the zionazi war on syria will also become a war on lebanon.

    Saudi al Riyadh: ‘We built House-Lebanon & we could bring it down just like that!’

    Mr. Al Kuwaylet forgot that it was the Lebanese that carry the burden of the ‘reconstruction’ of Lebanon (US$ 75 Billion in debt) and that most of Saudi grants (over 65% of these grants since the Riyadh Summit of 1976′) remain UNPAID!

    “…Arab Gulf countries, led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have paid for the reconstruction of Lebanon and strengthened its economy through deposits and grants, and these countries are home to hundreds of thousands of workers (Workers, and not beggars) in various sectors, however the state (of Lebanon) did not move because it is governed involved two parties who threaten the interests of Saudi Arabia, Hezbollah and Syria … and that begs the question as to the status of the majority of Lebanese Sunnis: It remains the weakest component in Lebanon, traditionally neutral or accepting the protection of lesser communities (lesser numerically and economically) … If ‘emboldened’ the Sunnis could alter the balance of forces … (continue, here)”
