Leader of the Amal Movement, Nabih Berri, attending a meeting 'Ayn Tineh

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Speaker of the Lebanese Parliament and leader of the Amal Movement, Nabih Berri, refused to meet with two U.N. officials at his residency in ‘Ayn Al-Tineh, Al-Joumhouria reported on Friday.

Claiming “disgusting behavior”, the veteran politician refused to take part in any meeting with the UN Speciail Coordinator for Lebanon, Bernell Cardel, and former UNIFIL commander, Michael Beary.

“I refused to receive her at Ain el-Tineh because she crossed the lines. Not only did she harm Lebanon, but she also harmed the United Nations’ role,” Berri told Al-Joumhouria.

Berri slammed Cardel over their last meeting in April, claiming that “she is in accord with the Israeli policy at the expense of our rights and our borders. I brought to her attention that she has made a commitment to continue with the policy of her predecessor Sigrid Kaag, but she denied.”

“She violated the diplomatic norms and objective facts when she visited Lebanese personalities and held me responsible for disrupting the resolution of the border dispute with the Israeli occupation entity.”

“I was aware of the aggressive orientation she has against me,” he added on Cardel.

In regards to Beary, the Amal Movement leader refused to meet with him over the former’s participation in Israel’s independence day.

“Not only did Beary do that, but he also tweeted congratulating Israel on this occasion, ignoring the fact that he is the UNIFIL commander in Lebanon and his role requires different behavior and respect for his position and the feelings of the Lebanese who have paid great price for the aggression of the Israeli occupation and its wars,” he concluded.

Both Beary and Cardel met with other high ranking Lebanese officials, including Prime Minister Saad Hariri.

It is far better than the tens of billions of free “humanitarian” cash provided to israel by us taxpayers courtesy of the israeli and defence lobbies. of course, israel is the richest in gdp per capita among its immediate neighbours and most evidently it is used directly for military purposes unlike UN aid. humanitarian aid for IDF occupation in golan is the real scam! Somehow asking israel, a relatively wealthy nation, to pay is unfeadible. on top of that it is illegal under US law to provide aid to an undeclared nuclear power. In the end, the west funds their… Read more »

The women is called “Pernille Kardel”.
“Bernell Cardel” is probably a re-re-transcription from Arabic. You should have taken the time to check the correct spelling…

Nabih Berri is absolutely childish on it, as usual and as he ever was.
Lebanese can really thank him and other thickheaded creeps for preventing the country from recovering from the mess Arafat created here.
Before 1975, living in Lebanon was just like living in Switzerland.
Thanks to all of them having made it a battlefield.
