“Sawt Beirut International” news bulletin for Sunday, November 7, 2021

In today’s news bulletin:

  • After losing the elections, the Iraqi Hezbollah tried to assassinate Al-Kazemi in Baghdad
  • A Hezbollah cell in Kuwait, that recruited fighters to push them into Syria and Yemen, was arrested
  • The Arab League delegation is in Beirut tomorrow to find a way out of the crisis with the Gulf states

As in Lebanon, so in Iraq. In the land of the cedars, Hezbollah controls and rules, and if it gets angry or fails to pass one of its plans in goodness and politics, its supporters go down to the ground to resolve the situation. This is what happened on May 7, 2008. This is how Black Shirt Day happened in 2011.

This is what happened on the 14th of last October between Tayouneh Roundabout and Ain El-Remmaneh. The party always says that it does not insert its weapons into internal affairs. But the facts belie the claims. It is true that he does not use his weapons anytime, but what is certain is that whenever a politician gets involved, Hezbollah brings down his men in their black shirts, trying to change the equations inside Lebanon.

This is without forgetting the assassination operations and the assassination attempts that were carried out with cold blood. Hezbollah, no matter what it says or whatever it claims, cannot renounce, for example, the blood of Rafik Hariri. Who would believe, for example, that Salim Ayyash took the decision to assassinate Rafik Hariri alone, without the knowledge of the Hezbollah leadership, or at least the military leadership? This is in Lebanon.

And in Mesopotamia it is similar. As at dawn today, the house of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi was attacked by drones, in a clear and explicit attempt to assassinate him. According to the announced official information and accusations, the armed faction of Hezbollah Brigades is responsible for the crime, and the goal is clear: to eliminate Al-Kazemi from the Iraqi equation, just as Rafik Hariri was removed from the Lebanese equation. So, once again, the Iranian tools and arms in Lebanon prove that they are a factor of instability and that they are a symbol of violence and political crime.

Lebanon is the first model, and Iraq is the second similar model, that if we go beyond what happened in different circumstances in Yemen, Syria and other large Arab countries. How long will Lebanon and the Arab countries remain at the mercy of Iran and its tools? And for how long will the abolition of the other remain the norm for Hezbollah?
