Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun noted on Wednesday that a large number of Lebanese have steered away from the path of resistance and forgotten about the Israeli threat against Lebanon.
He said: “Some sides are seeking to spread the unrest in Syria to Lebanon in order for us to surrender” to foreign powers.
He made his remarks before a student gathering at the Lebanese University in Hadath on the occasion of Resistance and Liberation day, which falls on May 25.
Addressing the government situation, Aoun remarked: “No one should dream that we will leave the government because that will only worsen the situation in Lebanon.”
“The military institution protects itself. We live in a democratic country and whoever governs it should be competent to perform his duty,” said the FPM chief.
The formation of a neutral government means standing at an equal distance between good and evil, he said in response to opposition calls to form a neutral government to supervise the 2013 parliamentary elections.
“We cannot make peace with sides that stole public funds. They should assume their responsibilities,” continued the MP.
Addressing the Resistance and Liberation day, he remarked: “The day is a product of the resistance’s blood and hard work.”
“The day is a culmination of a series of confrontations with Israel,” Aoun added.
