""OP8. Calls for Israel and Lebanon to support a permanent ceasefire and a long-term solution based on the following principles and elements:
— full respect for the Blue Line by both parties;
— security arrangements to prevent the resumption of hostilities, including the establishment between the Blue Line and the Litani river of an area free of any armed personnel, assets and weapons other than those of the government of Lebanon and of UNIFIL as authorized in paragraph 11, deployed in this area;
— full implementation of the relevant provisions of the Taif Accords, and of resolutions 1559 (2004) and 1680 (2006), that require the disarmament of all armed groups in Lebanon, so that, pursuant to the Lebanese cabinet decision of July 27, 2006, there will be no weapons or authority in Lebanon other than that of the Lebanese state;
— no foreign forces in Lebanon without the consent of its government;
— no sales or supply of arms and related materiel to Lebanon except as authorized by its government;
— provision to the United Nations of all remaining maps of land mines in Lebanon in Israel’s possession. UN Resolution 1701
1- "Between the Blue Line and the Litani River." The Litani closely approaches the panhandle of Israel in the area of Metulla. The river then extends north away from Israel. What are the boundaries of the "buffer zone" in that area since the language of the resolution does not describe them?
2- Since Hizbullah is a legal political party in Lebanon with representation in parliament and ministers in the government, what is to prevent the integration of Hizbullah forces into the Lebanese government security forces? If that occurs then the provisions of OP8 will be fulfilled with regard to the exclusivity of the possession of armed forces by the Lebanese government.
3- In the event of the integration of Hizbullah forces into those of Lebanon, then re-supply of those forces from outside Lebanon will not violate the relevant portion of OP8.
It should be remembered that Hizbullah and its Shia political ally "Amal" control a bloc of seats in the Lebanese parliament amounting to 35 seats out of 128. Democracy in action.
