Geagea Says Hizbullah Revealed its True Colors, Calls for Swift Formation of Cabinetإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said on Tuesday that Hizbullah revealed its true colors and is acting according to its own will, pointing out that the cabinet must be swiftly formed to end the paralysis in the country.
“Hizbullah has set its strategy and is bluntly contradicting the laws and constitution,” Geagea said via Skype during the LF annual convention in Melbourne, Australia.
He noted that the party “doesn't want cover or support from any Lebanese side and will go on with what it believes despite our points of view.”
Hizbullah has dispatched fighters to battle alongside the Syrian regime against rebels seeking the overthrow of President Bashar Assad.
The conflict, pitting a Sunni-dominated rebel movement against Assad, has raised sectarian tensions in Lebanon and Lebanese Sunni fighters have also been killed while fighting alongside Syrian rebels.
Several politicians have called on Hizbullah to abide by the Baabda declaration that calls for disassociating Lebanon from regional conflicts, and to maintain Lebanon's best interest.
The Baabda Declaration was unanimously adopted during a national dialogue session in June 2012. It calls for Lebanon to disassociate itself from regional crises, most notably the one in Syria.
Lebanese parties are sharply divided over the crisis in Syria as the March 8 alliance continuously expresses its support to Assad, while the March 14 camp voices its support for the popular revolt.
Geagea called for the swift formation of the cabinet that abides by the constitution and not “foreign strategies.”
He also pointed out that the upcoming presidential elections should be free and not based on compromises
“Whoever wants to run for presidency is his right,” Geagea said.
The LF leader said that coordination is ongoing in the March 14 coalition, saying that the “general situation in difficult and delicate but not hopeless.”
In September, President Michel Suleiman said that he would challenge the extension of his mandate if the parliament took such a move amid soaring political tensions and the failure to form a new government.
His term ends in May 2014.
PS : pro Iranians have no lessons to give to pro Saudis. Only pro Lebanese do... But none of you are (@mowaten, @ft, @southern, good morning)...
Eagerly waiting for your cheap and meaningless attacks of the man rather than his ideas. Avoid pointing the other way and instead demonstrate how Hezbollah is not breaking the law. We do not care for the reasons or excuses for breaking the law...
Sorry, I dont take advice from Salafists. But here's my advice to you:
Go take a shower.
@Karim : First off, I'm no more a Salafist than you are a complete idiot. I'm christian by the way and hate Geagea as much as Aoun.
2- you have just proved my point. You're a complete moron who is incapable of arguing against anyone! You revert to easy insults instead. I guess it's the way your parents educated you. From Sheep to Sheep...
3- I didn't give you advice, I gave you a challenge which you failed. So simply shove your advice where the sun doesn't shine... I'm sure you'll enjoy it given the fact you let your country get raped by HA and ask for more !
4- Unlike you, i'm clean of hatred and from supporting the worst scum there is. You're the one who needs a shower !
Hey Geagea, any news from your FSA, ISIL, AlNusra friends to where about the Malloula nuns?
The only way we will get rod of them is if israel attacks Iran but that wont happen right now so we are stick with these takfiris for now HA thugs and murderers are takfiris
Hezbollah is the only foreign force who cares about helping Syria with boots on the ground (except for Russian snipers), so in my book they are scoring points by the day.
Foreign terrorists in Syria slaughter civilians in the most barbaric ways, burn shia mosqs and christian churches, and have no plan other than overthrow the secular government and kill kill kill. Fucking barbarians. Guys from Hezbollah in Lebanon live in peace and harmony with Christians.
Not helping the Syrian Army, or worse, aiding the foreign terrorists makes one accessory to terrorism and war crimes.
So, as a Christian and Westerner, kudos to Hezbollah for raising a wall of courage against the advance of salafist terrorists looking to destroy everything beautiful in their path and make innocents die and suffer.
Maalula mother superior Pelagia Sayyaf said "she and the 11 other nuns, accompanied by three young maids, were comfortably installed in a house in Yabrud and no one was bothering them," Nabhan said.
The two nuns spoke on Monday evening, Nabhan added.
"Bashar el Assad is a saint next to these things" LOL...
bashar made more war crimes and crimes agaisnt humanity but you still support him no? LOL
"he supports Al Qaida fanatics in syria that will then turn lebanon into the same..."
LOL that is what hezbis want you to believe to justify their war in syria and you gob it! LOL
like the man or not but what he says is hardly criticizible!
"he party “doesn't want cover or support from any Lebanese side and will go on with what it believes despite our points of view.” TRUE: they do not care about lebanon...
“Hizbullah has set its strategy and is bluntly contradicting the laws and constitution,”
TRUE they spit on a declaration they hypocritcally agreed upon... and spit on the president's call....
but what to expect from a party that calls itself islamic resistance and not lebanese resistance and that pledged allegiance not to the lebanese flag but to the iranian revolution....
Haha that's true darling, including the Naharnet editor who is sitting behind a screen deleting my post as soon as I enter it.
