Geagea Says 'Eternal' Ties with Mustaqbal Preserve Lebanon

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanese Forces chief Samir Geagea described his ties with al-Mustaqbal movement of ex-Premier Saad Hariri as “eternal,” stressing their alliance was essential in preserving Lebanon.

“Our relations are eternal. They go beyond that. We consider the alliance between the LF and al-Mustaqbal essential in keeping the unity of the Lebanese entity,” said Geagea in remarks to al-Joumhouria newspaper published on Monday.

The LF leader advised Hariri to remain adamant in his call on Hizbullah to withdraw its fighters from Syria and not to confront the will of the Syrian people in calling for a change in the “authoritarian” regime.

“The Sunni sect in Lebanon considers that Hizbullah is waging war against Sunnis in Syria and this is clearly affecting Lebanon's situation,” said Geagea.

Hizbullah fighters have gone to join Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces in their battle against Sunni rebels, drawing anger at home from Lebanon's Sunnis and stoking Sunni-Shiite tensions.

This in turn led to tit-for-tat suicide bombings and several rounds of street clashes in Lebanon in the past year.

Along with the Lebanese army, Hizbullah is fighting almost daily incursions by Islamic State group and al-Nusra Front militants in the eastern Bekaa valley, prompting accusations that the army is collaborating with the party against the Lebanese Sunnis, placing the army in the thick of the Sunni-Shiite confrontation.

All what I See from this man is what us good for Lebanon, hope that all politicians learn something from him, including beyond hope lunatics, Aoun , bassil ... fobia from mustaqbal, fobia from LF while fpm taking this country to where the Revolutionary Guards of Iran want. When a lebanese have lost his or her dignity and sold the stare and the army as much as Aoun, ..and the joke is, on OTV of Iran they wanted to show the Great Lebanese Army units and training while they permit their ally current major sponsor prosper and control the border, and cause problems with all Lebanese.

The anti christ Geagea, should definitely announce his real sect. Which is takfirism.

Again i have to repeat, ISIS and Nusra was Syria long before the Resistance intervened.

All proof is there to see for everyone, whom got a neutral agenda.

The right and only way to preserve Lebanon is by equal rights for all Lebanese and disconnection religions from politics .

Dira Aoun insinuante that he is delaying the presidential election until a new majority arrives to the parliament. If so this is very Undemocratic.

Now when m14 win the election in 2009 m8 did not recognize the parliamentary majority and imposed a union government with a veto power for m8.

Aoun and followers are swimming in hatred and contradictions. They hate the Sunni, Ksa, the FL, Geagea, Hariri, Saniora, Rifi, the previous Batrak...

They tell us now that Syria has gone out if Lebanon we should forgive and have friendly relationship with the tyranic Assad regime.

We should forgive Syria but not the FL, nor Hariri and even less Ksa that has showed many a time it's support for the government, the economy and the LAF.

hatred and fear is blinding Aoun and his followers leading to the current situation we are in.

Dr. Geagea, sorry, I cannot subscribe to your views, well at least not in the way you wish to present matters to us. You see, in 2005 when the Syrian occupiers were booted out of Lebanon, the political alliances that were forged thereafter between Michel Aoun's FPM and Sayed Hassan's HA on the one hand and the LF and future on the other hand were seen as good options to end all forms of sectarianism in Lebanon. Alas, on the surface it looked good, finally sensible political alliances between the Lebanese, but in the formulation and execution departments, the sauce remained as thick as anything concocted by the Lebanese. Both in your case and in Aoun's case, you both remain respectively stooges, Christian stooges who can't seem to draw the line when and where to say that an alliance is never about subjugation but the partnership of equals. Sorry, you both aimed and missed, intentionally.

I have to agree with you and the other 2 commenters above. Bro, we are both pure lebanese forces at heart, we both fought them somalis, palestinians, and martians. On the other hand we don't want the Head of our beloved lebanese forces to become president. Makes sense bro.

It is obvious that flamethrower and his others are aiming to destroy this forum. He (they) makes all these registered fake accounts to spam, vote people down, and report. It is the same poster who seems to know everybody here. He is vengefull and hateful. Comments that simply express one's opinion and contain absolutely no insults are being systematically deleted. He is dedicated to this site 24/7 and nothing has changed. Someone who used to post 24/7 and on each and every article will not simply abandon his addiction because he was banned.
As to this blablabla and his assertion, nobody takes him seriously. He is another one who has multiple accounts and never offers anything of value. I am disappointed in naharnet on duty moderators. They should at least do a cursory review of the comment before deleting it.

I have no idea why M8 and their supporters have to defend their actions in Syria over and over again with their absolute disinformation garbage. The whole world knows unequivocally there were no ISIS or Nusra in Syria prior to HA intervention. If your actions were so righteous and honorable you wouldn't have to defend them with absolute and constant lies right? Or do you simply believe if you repeat your own lies enough times you will start believing it's the truth and absolve yourselves from guilt?

“The Sunni sect in Lebanon considers that Hizbullah is waging war against Sunnis in Syria and this is clearly affecting Lebanon's situation,” said Geagea.

--the Hezbo-Aouniyeh say he's a Salafi puppet, but that statement is very true. Just look at how many soldiers have defected from the army because they feel Sunnis are under attack. Whether this is extreme or not, this is how they feel. The only way to change their minds about this is for Hezbollah to withdraw from Syria, but that's not gonna happen.
