Lebanese Prime Minister: Iran Is Using Hezbollah to Control Lebanon

Mohammad bin Salman Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud also known as MBS is the Crown Prince of Saudi

Central Bank Governor Riad Salameh Monday reiterated that the monetary situation in Lebanon is still under control despite the resignation of Prime Minister Saad Hariri more than a week ago.

Yahya said these statements likely had an impact.

While commending the Lebanese for "social solidarity" with refugees, almost all of whom are Syrian, the prelates said the refugees' presence - now more than half of Lebanon's existing population of about 4 million - "has become a burden and a threat to its structure, economy and population balance and to its political and security stability". "I think this kind of strong-arm tactic [by Saudi Arabia] obviously caused a lot of alarm, and that flies in the face of worldwide norms".

Hariri explained that his resignation was not officially accepted in Lebanon because it was announced from Riyadh.

This week's events, he says, are Hariri's own chosen response to an escalating power struggle in the Middle East.

Saudi Arabia's U.N. Ambassador Abdallah al-Mouallimi, asked whether Hariri is being detained, told a news conference at U.N. headquarters in New York: "That's preposterous".

At the end of the November 6-10 session of the Catholic Council of the Patriarchs and Bishops of Lebanon, the prelates said their pain "is the continuation of wars in the countries of the Middle East, particularly in Syria, Iraq, Palestine and Yemen, which have shaken the stability and peace and caused the programmed demolition and the ravages and misfortunes of innocent citizens". I will be back in Lebanon in a few days. Lebanon's prime minister gave a TV interview and did not sound like he's quitting after all. He said Lebanon was at risk of Gulf Arab sanctions because of the Shi'ite group Hezbollah's regional meddling. As well as being a well-armed militia, Hezbollah is a dominant force in Lebanon's ministerial Cabinet.

George HW Bush Has Been Grabbing Asses For Years
Five other women have made similar allegations , which began surfacing last month, against the former president. Corrigan's mother said she didn't say anything to Bush in part out of fear of jeopardizing her husband's job.

His demand that Hezbollah pull out of its foreign wars is unlikely to be met.

Whatever the reason behind the Lebanese prime minister's actions, his call on Sunday for a neutral Lebanon aligns with Saudi Arabia's interests.

But, the Carnegie Endowment's Yayha said, at least the door is open for negotiation now.

In recent years, Hezbollah's role in neighboring Syria's civil war paralyzed Lebanon's political system.

KSCIP now operates from Kuala Lumpur and the government aims to complete the construction in two years.

Even if Hariri eventually returns, his country's future is far from clear. "They (the Lebanese) will not rest until he returns so that life returns to normal".
