Hizbullah likely to retain weapons

Jerusalem Post Hizbullah will not hand over its weapons to the Lebanese government but rather refrain from exhibiting them publicly, according to a new compromise that is reportedly brewing between Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Seniora and Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

If Hisbullah keeps its weapons, it will use them to attack Israel the next time Iran needs to stir up trouble to take the world's attention off of itself, so Lebanon needs to be prepared for Israel to devistate the country again, only this time they will know what the Iranian weapons Hizbullah has, and they can be better prepared for them.
The UN cease-fire resolution specifically demands the demilitarization of the area south of the Litani river. The resolution was approved by the Lebanese cabinet.
And we all know how important the UN is.
In a televised address on Monday night, Nasrallah declared that now was not the time to debate the disarmament of his guerrilla fighters, saying the issue should be done in secret sessions of the government to avoid serving Israeli interests.
The heck with Israeli interests. What about Lebanese interests. Does it want a militia it cannot control to be armed, and able to declare war against a neighbor country just because a third country tells them to?
"This is immoral, incorrect and inappropriate," he said. "It is wrong timing on the psychological and moral level particularly before the cease-fire," he said in reference to calls from critics for the guerrillas to disarm.
