What was the role of FPM in UN resolution 1559 coming to life, and why did FPM shortly thereafter turn 180 degrees to oppose it completely after supporting it and seemingly working hard for it? Many today forget these things, but it is good to look at recent history to better understand today's realities and imagine a better future.

UN1559 is a resolution supporting Lebanese sovereignty the Lebanese people should rally around it.


Here is an old closed thread on the topic for your reference.



The text of resolution 1559 (2004) reads as follows:

The Security Council,

Recalling all its previous resolutions on Lebanon, in particular resolutions 425 (1978) and 426 (1978) of 19 March 1978, resolution 520 (1982) of 17 September 1982, and resolution 1553 (2004) of 29 July 2004 as well as the statements of its President on the situation in Lebanon, in particular the statement of 18 June 2000 (S/PRST/2000/21),

Reiterating its strong support for the territorial integrity, sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon within its internationally territorially recognized borders,

Noting the determination of Lebanon to ensure the withdrawal of all non-Lebanese forces from Lebanon,

Gravely concerned at the continued presence of armed militias in Lebanon, which prevent the Lebanese government from exercising its full sovereignty over all Lebanese territory,

Reaffirming the importance of the extension of the control of the Government of Lebanon over all Lebanese territory,

Mindful of the upcoming Lebanese presidential elections and underlining the importance of free and fair elections according to Lebanese constitutional rules devised without foreign interference or influence,

“1. Reaffirms its call for the strict respect of the sovereignty, territorial integrity, unity, and political independence of Lebanon under the sole and exclusive authority of the Government of Lebanon throughout Lebanon;

“2. Calls upon all remaining foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon;

“3. Calls for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias;

“4. Supports the extension of the control of the Government of Lebanon over all Lebanese territory;

“5. Declares its support for a free and fair electoral process in Lebanon’s upcoming presidential election conducted according to Lebanese constitutional rules devised without foreign interference or influence;

“6. Calls upon all parties concerned to cooperate fully and urgently with the Security Council for the full implementation of this and all relevant resolutions concerning the restoration of the territorial integrity, full sovereignty, and political independence of Lebanon;

“7. Requests that the Secretary-General report to the Security Council within thirty days on the implementation by the parties of this resolution and decides to remain actively seized of this matter.”

So much of resolution 1559 still applies today, and should be adopted by Free Christians as a banner for the next parliamentary and presidential elections.

so you think we should drop the decisions of 3emiyit antelyas and adopt 1559 instead?

Implementation of Security Council resolution 1559 (2004) Twenty-ninth semi-annual report of the Secretary-General


Excerpts from the Twenty-ninth semi-annual report (on 25 April 2019) of the Secretary-General on the Implementation of Security Council resolution 1559 (2004):

C. Disbanding and disarmament of Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias

23. In its resolution 1559 (2004), the Security Council called for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias, a key provision of the resolution that has yet to be implemented. The provision reflects and reaffirms a decision to which all Lebanese committed themselves in the Taif Accords.

24. Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias within the country continued to operate outside the control of the Government, in violation of resolution 1559 (2004). While several groups across the political spectrum in Lebanon possess weapons outside government control, Hizbullah is the most heavily armed militia in the country. In a democratic State, it remains a fundamental anomaly that a political party maintains a militia that has no accountability to the democratic, governmental institutions of the State but has the power to take that State to war. S/2019/343 19-06827 5/8

25. The self-acknowledged maintenance of arms by Hizbullah and other groups and the alleged increase by Hizbullah of its arsenal pose a serious challenge to the State ’s ability to exercise full sovereignty and authority over its territory. In an interview with a television channel on 26 January, the Secretary-General of Hizbullah reiterated his claim of 20 September 2018 that Hizbullah possesses precision missiles (see S/2018/920). In response to a question, he stated “of course we possess precision missiles, and with a sufficient number to confront [Israel] in a future war, to strike any target we want in the course of our war plan […]. We possess precision missiles in the amount we need and what we need no longer needs to be transferred.”

26. There has been no tangible progress towards the disbanding and disarming of Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias, as called for in the Taif Accords and resolution 1559 (2004). Since the adoption of that resolution, no specific steps have been taken to tackle that crucial issue, which lies at the heart of the sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon. The maintenance by Hizbullah of a military arsenal outside of a legal framework and its involvement in the Syrian Arab Republic continued to be denounced by a number of voices in Lebanon, who consider those issues to be destabilizing factors in the country and ones that undermine democracy. Many Lebanese see the continued presence of such arms as an implicit threat that the weapons could be used within Lebanon for political reasons.

27. In a letter dated 26 October 2018 addressed to the President of the Security Council and to me (S/2018/960), the Permanent Representative of Israel denounced, on behalf of his Government, Hizbullah’s “missile conversion activities,” further alleging that they were “amid mass civilian population centres”. He called on the Lebanese authorities to “conduct the necessary due diligence to ensure that facilities and funding are not being used” for Hizbullah’s activities. As noted in my report on the implementation of resolution 1701 (S/2019/237), in a letter dated 28 February addressed to the Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, the Deputy Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations conveyed, on behalf of her Government, that “the Iranian regime continues to bolster Hezbollah’s weapons capabilities in various ways, including through the precision-guided missile conversion programme it has established inside civilian population centres across Lebanon, and the proliferation of mass weapons manufacturing capabilities to Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Syrian Arab Republic ”. In the letter it was alleged that reports over the past few months had revealed a drastic increase in weapons transfers from Tehran to Rafic Hariri International Airport in Beirut. It was further stated that the “Iranian regime is also providing Hezbollah with technical training and assistance to manufacture, maintain and use these weapons and advanced capabilities independently”. The United Nations is not in a position to verify the information provided.

28. The participation of Hizbullah and other Lebanese in the conflict in the Syrian Arab Republic continued to breach the policy of disassociation and the principles of the Baabda Declaration. In an interview with a television channel on 26 January, the Secretary-General of Hizbullah, referring to the announced withdrawal of United States troops from the Syrian Arab Republic, stated that Hizbullah’s reason to remain there still stood, given that it was based on a request from the Government of the Syrian Arab Republic. In a letter dated 13 March 2019 addressed to the President of the Security Council and to me (S/2019/234), the Permanent Representative of Israel, on behalf of his Government, stated that the Israel Defense Forces had exposed a “Hezbollah terror network” ranging “from the town of Hader, at the northern end of the Golan Heights, to the towns of Arneh and Khan Arnabeh and to Quneitra ”.

29. In his interview on 26 January, the Secretary-General of Hizbullah stated that, should Hizbullah be invited to discuss the national defence strategy, it would be ready S/2019/343 6/8 19-06827 to do so “without prior conditions and at any time,” stating that it had already presented its vision on the matter in 2006.

30. The security situation in the Palestine refugee camps remained relatively calm during the reporting period. However, several Palestinian armed groups continued to operate in the country, inside and outside the Palestine refugee camps. On 15 October, violent clashes broke out in the Mieh Mieh camp between supporters of the Ansarullah Movement and Fatah, involving the use of heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. Six fighters were reportedly killed, and 26 people were injured in the clashes. The fighting resulted in the displacement of most residents of the camp, extensive damage and the temporary suspension of operations of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. The President of Lebanon stated on 25 October that the Lebanese armed forces would continue to take the measures necessary to maintain security and stability in the area. A ceasefire went into effect on 28 October. In a visit to the town of Mieh Mieh on 30 October, the former Minister of Information, Melhem Riachy, reportedly stated that “it is unacceptable to have weapons outside the State […]. The Lebanese army, which is shouldering its responsibilities to the fullest, is the one responsible in this matter.” A shoot-out that reportedly involved the son of fugitive Bilal Abu Arqub, affiliated with the Bilal Badr extremist group, left four wounded in Ein El Hilweh on 15 March.

31. The presence of Palestinian armed groups outside the camps also continued. Notwithstanding the decision taken in 2006 in the context of the national dialogue, and confirmed at subsequent sessions, to disarm Palestinian militias outside the camps within a six-month period, no progress was made during the reporting period with regard to dismantling the military bases of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command and Fatah al-Intifada in the country.

32. On 21 January, the intelligence branch of the Lebanese armed forces stated that it had arrested an individual who it said had carried out reconnaissance and monitoring operations on behalf of Israeli intelligence agencies in the case of the attempted assassination of a Hamas official, as mentioned in my report of May 2018 (S/2018/480). 33. UNRWA continued its efforts to deliver essential health, education, relief and social services to Palestine refugees in Lebanon, in the face of serious funding shortfalls. The Agency has called for a total of $1.2 billion to fund its vital core services and life-saving humanitarian aid for 5.4 million Palestine refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, the Syrian Arab Republic, Gaza and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. In its ministerial statement, the Government pledged to “work with sister and friendly countries on finding a solution to the funding crisis ” of the Agency.

I don't understand how in sudden LF are attacking FPM thru HA weapons; is it concidence after they got slapped in the face by Berri and Hariri?

Until when HA weapons will become serious issue for LF, and not for the use against FPM whenever they are cornered?

Absolutely nothing.
1559 is the fruit of the works of Rafic Hariri and Jacques Chirac.

Aoun has always been jealous of Hariri’s very wide connections worldwide. Nobody ever paid serious attention to Aoun, either regionally or globally, and proof on it : all the arab leaders abstained from the arab summit in Beirut, same during Aoun’s visit to the UN. No decent president in the world met with him.

He is a second Emile Lahoud, a rejected president, only applauded by his masters Assad and Rouhani.
