Lebanese Politicians Discuss Syria and Brawl on National TV… But Mostly Brawl on National TV (Video)
Hezbollah and their pro-Syrian politicians are a little on edge now that the Assad regime has lost support in the region. The 22-nation Arab bloc pressured President Bashar Assad to remove troops from hostile cities and comply with a peace plan. This obviously upset the pro-Assad and pro-Iran lackeys in the region.
A fight broke out on Lebanese television this week between a pro-Assad Baath member and anti-Syrian former legislator Mustafa Alloush.
From the video:
Two prominent Lebanese politicians debating the unrest in neighboring Syria have exchanged blows on live television, in an indication of the deep divide between Lebanese factions over their relationship with Damascus.
Pro and anti-Syrian regime demonstrations are common in Lebanon, whose politics have long been heavily influenced by Damascus, now facing increasing isolation over its bloody crackdown on protestors.
The fight late Monday night broke out in a debate between anti-Syrian former legislator Mustafa Alloush and the head of the Lebanese branch of Syria’s ruling Baath party Fayez Shukur.
According to AFP, the two clashed over Syrian President Bashar Assad’s credibility.
