Al-Hariri made his speech to a Beirut rally celebrating the birthday of Mohammed. He criticized Hizbullah’s use of its strength of arms to influence domestic politics and rejected its claim that the STL is an “Israeli tool.” Al-Hariri sarcastically congratulated Hizbullah for forming a government “that was hijacked by the intimidation of weapons and…a power that was stolen from the will of the people.”  

Although the United States has encouraged the new government to respect international law and cooperate with the tribunal, it remains unclear how the Hizbullah-backed government will be treated diplomatically by the American administration.
