The World Council of Cedars Revolution Calls on State Department to Reject Issa as US Ambassador from Lebanon
December 5, 2017
Washington DC: The World Council of Cedars Revolution (WCCR) is calling for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to reject Gaby Issa as the Lebanese ambassador to the US. Issa was put forward by Michel Aoun, the current President of Lebanon. Aoun’s Free Patriotic Movement is allied with the Iranian terrorist organization, Hezbollah. Issa has served as an official in the Free Patriotic Movement and has served as an envoy on behalf of Aoun to President Assad in Syria.
WCCR maintains that Lebanon must be freed from the grasp of Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah, and released from Syrian domination in order to be restored as the free and independent state it once was.
"By accepting this ambassador, the US would be strengthening the pro-Hezbollah forces in Lebanon which is contrary to President Trump’s policy, said WCCR National Director, John Hajjar. "This is the wrong direction for Lebanon and the wrong direction for the United States at a time when the US Congress is in the process of strengthening sanctions against Hezbollah."
Secretary Tillerson, reject the appointment!
