Source: Al-Jadid/New TV (Lebanon)

Followig are excerpts from an interview with former Lebanese minister Wiam Wahhab, which aired on Al-Jadid/New TV on July 4, 2010.
 

Wiam Wahhab: Does the UN really believe that it can be used by the US and Israel, and that it can use the international tribunal in order to destroy Lebanon, and that we won’t lift a finger?! Do they really believe this? Do they really think that things can remain the same from the Litani River to the south, while here, the country will be destroyed, and people will fight a civil war?!
 

Interviewer: Hold on, if the indictment of the international tribunal leads to civil strife, as you expect – will UNIFIL find itself in danger?
 

Wiam Wahhab: I think so. It is not that I am about to carry out attacks against UNIFIL. But in my view, UNIFIL will be in danger.

Interviewer: Who do you support [in the World Cup]?
 

Wiam Wahhab: My children and I supported Brazil.
 

Interviewer: Me too.
 

Wiam Wahhab: Brasil lost. My wife supports Germany. We drive the kids mad. Now I am supporting Argentina.
 

Interviewer: You have become subordinate to your wife when it comes to soccer?
 

Wiam Wahhab: No. I support Germany in politics and Brazil in soccer. I like the way Brazil plays. But I like the Germans because they hate the Jews and they burned them.
