Lebanese MP blasts US policies in Middle East

He told reporters that the Americans “want to incite war in the region,” in a reference to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s recent statement that Washington was prepared to work with rising Islamist groups in the Middle East.

“[The US] wants to surround Iran…and today they [are eyeing] Syria…They also want peace with Israel,” Aoun said following his bloc’s weekly meeting.

He added that “Clinton wants to [teach] us Middle Eastern affairs more than we already understand.”

“I do not know how [the Americans] talk about human rights [and disregard] the rights of those in Palestine.”

The MP also said that Russia and China stood in the way of Western countries “that want to meddle in Syria’s [affairs] by escalating its crisis.”

Asked about Future Movement leader MP Saad Hariri’s recent statement that he will return to Beirut soon, Aoun said that “anything that is not proven is worthless.”

“[Hariri] can say whatever he wants.”

In 2006, Aoun formed an alliance with the Shia group Hezbollah and became a fierce critic of the March 14 parties and US policies in the Middle East.
