Gemayel Plays Down Nasrallah's 'Unacceptable Threat'

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Phalange leader Amin Gemayel downplayed Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's latest threats, saying the Lebanese have no choice but to resolve their political problems peacefully.

“The threat of any political party to its partners in the nation is rejected and unacceptable,” Gemayel told the Kuwaiti al-Seyassah newspaper published on Monday.

“There is always the probability to meet again. Everyone should understand that no one can abolish the other in Lebanon,” he said.

“All those who have thought of abolishing others have paid a high price,” Gemayel told the daily. “We have no choice but to recognize each other or else we will all be doomed.”

The former president was optimistic that Lebanon's political crisis would be resolved.

“Despite the escalatory stances, we can't say that doors are closed or that there are no longer any solutions,” he said.

“The Lebanese people have no choice but to keep the lines open and always seek to resolve problems and not complicate them,” Gemayel said.

“The alternative is war and destruction,” he warned.

Nasrallah warned on Friday against the formation of a fait accompli cabinet and said the March 14 alliance had recently adopted a “very dangerous rhetoric” amounting to “a declaration of war” against his party.

He was referring to a rally that was organized by al-Mustaqbal movement in the northern city of Tripoli during which March 14 officials lashed out at Hizbullah.

Gemayel reiterated that the alliance holds onto its principles of defending Lebanon's sovereignty, independence and institutions.

“The Lebanese entity is under threat and not just the presidential elections,” he said.

“The Lebanese entity is under threat"… it has been under threat for a long time the only difference is that now the threat is out in the open.

@Southern, it would be called M-jadib ... I love your wishful thinking. This will never happen.

Only Aounies are dumb enough to blindly accept Aoun's unholy alliance with Hezbollah unconditionally.

the Kataeb are Lebanese and will NEVER align themselves with the syrian regime or iran.
your comment shows how much credibility your master hassouna the terrorist has :)

Mr Gemayel's tone gets usually milder before Presidential elactions. This been said; no M14 group has ever asked for the eradication of Hizbullah. what has been asked is the eradication of BOTH M14 & M8 from the new government. Sympathisers & technicians of both groups would manage some state affairs preventing State desintegration.
