Lebanon: Islamic Sunni Groups Start Military Bloc to Confront Hezbollah Sawan al Atbah, 5/14/08, Asharq Al-Awsat)

Former Lebanese Deputy Khalid al-Dahir has revealed that the Islamic Sunni movements in north Lebanon have started to form a political and military bloc capable of confronting what Hezbollah had done in Beirut and other Lebanese areas.

Dahir told Asharq Al-Awsat, "We held today(yesterday) a meeting away from the media, which included at least 50 hawks from the Islamic leaderships and was aimed at taking action against the coup of the so-called Hezbollah militia. We agreed on an escalatory and programmed campaign to reject the attack on the Sunnis, the mufti of the republic, the ministers, and the deputies, and in particular Deputy Saad al-Hariri."

The Salafists are the common enemy of America and the Shi'a.
