Gemayel to Qassem: Hezbollah logic 'laughable yet lamentable'

Kataeb leader Sami Gemayel accused Hezbollah Monday of having only destructive options for the presidential file.

In response to Hezbollah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem, Gemayel said that Hezbollah is confused and that its logic is "laughable yet lamentable."

"Do we have to either agree on your confrontational candidate or permanently submit to your orders," Gemayel asked. "Don't you have any other options but these destructive ones?"

Qassem had said that those opposed to the election of Marada leader Suleiman Franjieh can barely agree on a candidate from a list of sixteen.

"A patriotic and unifying Christian president is better for Lebanon than a confrontational president with sectarian motives," Qassem said.
