While Western Nations continue to Fund Hizbullah’s Lebanon Government, Saudis Say No
Although the United States continues to turn a blind to Hizbullah’s presence in the Lebanese government, accepting the fiction of “political” and “military” arms, Saudi Arabia has said, “Enough.” The straw that broke this Middle Eastern camel’s back is the role the Iranian-backed terrorist group plays as surrogate fighters for Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and its stranglehold on the Lebanese government. The result is the announced end of $4 billion in Saudi aid to Beirut and a call to expel Hizbullah from the government. Lebanese President Michel Aoun recently defended Hizbullah’s presence as being a “complement” to the Lebanese army. Israel’s defense minister recently said there is no difference between the army and the terrorist group.
