BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – Approximately one hour ago, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri began his press conference on the formation of a new government.

Hariri began his press conference by criticizing Hezbollah’s Secretary-General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah for his recent remarks on the formation of a new government in Lebanon.

“The country ran into obstacles after the speech of Hezbollah’s leader,” Hariri stated.

“I regret that Hezbollah has prevented the formation of the government,” he would continue.

Hariri would then address the claims by Hezbollah that he is monopolizing the political affairs of Lebanon’s Sunni Muslims.

“No one has the right to say that a certain sect’s representation is being monopolized, while they monopolize an entire sect,” Hariri exclaimed.

“The problems the country will face are Hezbollah’s responsibility,” he continued.

Hariri then attacked the claims that he is inciting sectarianism inside of Lebanon, adding that he will not be intimidated by anyone.

“I am the father of Sunnis in Lebanon and I know what serves their interest,” he stated.

The Lebanese Premier would conclude his speech by referring to himself in third person and stating that he will not be defeated.

“Saad Hariri will not be defeated, despite repeated attempts throughout the past 13 years,” he concluded.

This Saad is the biggest cowards and he is the biggest threat to sunnis in lebnon. Sunni should not relay on Harriri for anything he is trying to create sectarian policy on behalf of Saudi. and their only aim is to destroy lebnon with the excuse of Hezbollah which means they are working on Israeli payroll. Saad Harriri is disgrace son of Rafik Harrir if he will be alive he should have scaked his son and sent him back to school

The Lebanese Parliament should ask Hariri whether he’s recovered his two youngest children off the Saudis yet.

This low-life was smacked around like a 4-year-old child by the Saudis, his own children blocked from leaving Saudi Arabia, and still he is adamantly doing their bidding. How a man can disgrace himself to such a degree is beyond my understanding. He’s a pig. And so is Geagea. Lebanon is too good for scum like this to have any position in high office.
