Geagea Lashes Out at Hizbullah's Role in Syria, Describes Party as 'Illegal'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea slammed on Monday Hizbullah's intervention Syria, considering that the party surpassed the state's decision, canceled its existence and described it as an “illegal” party.

“The Lebanese fear Hizbullah's endeavors in Syria and it's clearly stated goals that toppled the constitution and the Lebanese law,” Geagea said in an interview with An Nahar newspaper.

Hizbullah's intervention in Syria and its major role in taking over the Syrian town of al-Qusayr by government troops threatens to bring that country's conflict even further into Lebanon, where rebels have vowed to retaliate with attacks on the Shiite group's home turf.

Only 10 kilometers from Lebanon, Qusayr is strategic for the regime and Hizbullah because of its proximity to the border and because it lies on a route linking Damascus to the the regime's bastion on the Syrian coast.

For the rebels, it was an important conduit from Lebanon for men and weapons.

The Christian leader lashed out at Hizbullah's supporters, saying that “several protests took place near foreign embassies in Lebanon, in particular the U.S. and French embassies, but none of the demonstrations ended like Sunday's sit-in near the Iranian embassy” in Bir Hassan area south of Beirut.

He considered that Hashem Salman, the Lebanese Option Party supporter who was killed on Sunday near the Iranian embassy, “paid the price of Freedom in Lebanon.”

“This is Hizbullah's actual nature and this is the violent community it represents,” Geagea added.

On Sunday, Hizbullah protagonists wearing black shirts and yellow ribbons around their arms beat up the Lebanese Option Party protesters near the Iranian embassy without giving demonstrates any warning.

Salman, who was the head of the party's student committee, was killed and at least 11 others wounded in the clash.

Concerning the process of cabinet formation, Geagea expressed hope that Prime Minister-designate Tammam Salam would form his cabinet this week or give the chance to another person to do so.

“We have to confront the non-state concept that some party's adopt,” Geagea told An Nahar.

He stressed that the March 14 alliance backs the state and will take a series of endeavors to press the formation of the government.

“If Hizbullah rejects the formation of the cabinet then it's the party's concern. It's not the majority of the people,” Geagea said, describing it as an “illegal” and “unconstitutional” party.

The PM-designate's efforts to form a new government came to a halt in recent weeks in light of the dispute over the extension of parliament's mandate and the political powers' failure to reach an agreement over a new parliamentary electoral law.

Salam will launch new consultations with various political powers to garner their views over the new government after the legislature extended its term for 17 months.

FT : Hassan just committed murder AGAIN in front of your so called hundreds of millions and your General Coward Aoun is going to defend him again.

Who's reactionary ? The murderers you support or the people proving your wrong?

Ba3den, the 1st bloc of christians in Lebanon is ruled and governed by NO ONE! The second biggest christian bloc is not Aoun but the alliance of christians against Aoun.

But of course, you will only believe the lies that are fed to you by nanny aoun !

And accuse this comment of being reactionary to your reactionary comment :)

Imbecile !

Default-user-icon FlameCatcher (Guest) 10 June 2013, 13:48

In plain english for your simple mind : Most christians in Lebanon are not allied to Aoun or any other politician. This is called the silent majority.

And if you add up all "allied" christians against Aoun (provided you can actually add 1+1), you get a much larger Anti-Aoun christian block.

To illustrate things for you as you don't seem to understand written words : If Aoun's christian block is the size of an Golf ball, Non-Allied Christians are as large a Watermelon and Anti-Aoun Christians would be the size of an Apple.

The size of your brain would be similar to that of a pea. Or Bazella if you don't understand ...

Default-user-icon FlameCatcher (Guest) 10 June 2013, 14:23

It seems you're the one who cannot count.

First: MPs do not amount to populations. Do not compare apple and oranges. Their numbers are not representative. And even Aoun's claim that the previous electoral law is unfair and unrepresentative.

Second: Aoun does not have 28 MPs, he has 19. Don't try to make Aoun seem larger than he is... (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_parties_in_Lebanon)

Third: The silent Majority by definition cannot be measured. They include all the people who did not vote 48% of voters + people who voted AGAINST a Party rather than FOR a Party.

But of course, you wouldn't know this because Aoun did not tell you this bedtime story!

Default-user-icon FlameCatcher (Guest) 10 June 2013, 15:27

1- Name me your 28 MPs ... let's see who can count. 19 Belong to FPM ... the rest are alliances you idiot.

2- Desertion means desertion ... Permission, LBC, French or Whatever, dont' try to play with words and find a justification to your stupid tentative to cleanse the image of Aoun.

3- Silent Majority : you don't seem to understand anything so I guess it's useless to argue with you. You jump through hoops to figure out any rubbish to say ... but this only confirms how much of a moron you are.

Your completely illogical statements confirms to be that you must be the bastard son of Aoun... Your non-arguments, aggressivity and logic of a 5 year old child only reaffirms this. Like father like son !

Deserted according to Wikipedia's definition of Desertion :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deserter

"In military terminology, desertion is the abandonment of a "duty" or post without permission"

Did Aoun ABANDON his DUTY : YES

So he is a deserter !

And since when do you listen to what the French say ? You cannot accuse the west of lying and then cite them !

There I was thinking this article (like any other) was about you ! In fact, I read more about you on this site than any other politician.

This article isn't about Geagea, it's about what Hezbollah did. I don't care for Geagea and have as much respect for him as I have for Aoun.

He's as much a false doctor as your general is a false general. As much as your hezbollah zbelé resistance to israel is a false resistance to israel.

My mission is to discredit you and expose the lies, lack of arguments, insults and plain childish comments that you post.

The Maronites have to choose whether they want to live under KSA-like conditions if they align with the Salafis, or in Iran-like conditions (at worst, probably nothing well change), if they align with the Shias.

And just for the record, Iran has a large Christian minority (even jewish) to this day, KSA has none.

Certainly you don't have high education (but i guess in your village reading and writing is considered high education - so i am sure your mother is proud of you).

With that, i guess there is not much you can say about western cultures. Terrorists are dreaming of turning the west against islam (it makes them stronger) but they are failing miserably. In my 25 years in europe and in the us, i never heard a racist comment and i saw people from all religions living peacefully together (even in manhattan days after 9/11)....

Missing bigjohn 10 June 2013, 23:22

Aoun became an ally of Syria AFTER Syrian troops left Lebanon. Hariri, Junblat, and most of M14 were allies of Syria for 2 decades until Hariri's death. They were allies of Syria's closest allies like the SSNP. The SSNP never won an MP seat in Koura until 1992 when it was allied with Hariri.

to use the same logic as you, M14 were allied with syrians so they knew more than annyone else what they were capable of... that is why now they are against them...LOL!
oh! and aoun said also that the lebanese politicians HAD TO ally with syrians or else DIE... but i guess as a brave aouni you would have prefered to die... pityful arguments you have
funny how aoun has the right to change to ally with those he called terrorists but M14 cannot change? LOL see how you aounis are stupid and illogical... poor arrogant people
