There should be a distinction between the weapons of the Resistance and the weapons of Hezbollah, Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said while on a state visit in Argentina. “The weapons that would be used in internal conflicts are forbidden and should be confiscated, whether they belong to Hezbollah or the Salafists or any other [group],” he added.


Suleiman’s recent South America tour and his meetings with members of the large Lebanese diaspora there brought a twist to his normally un-provocative political stances. While in Uruguay, Suleiman said a plan was submitted to parliament to empower the army and eventually make it the sole possessor of weapons to defend Lebanon against any threat, including from Israel.”  [Link]
