Geagea Says Cabinet Paralyzed, Dominated by Hizbullah and Syria

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea stressed that the Lebanese government is dominated by Hizbullah and the Syrian regime that were behind the toppling of the cabinet led by former PM Saad Hariri.

“The President (Michel Suleiman) and the Premier (Najib Miqati) are the ones who supervise the formation of the government… they had a strong tendency to form a technocrat cabinet… However, the result was the opposite,” Geagea told al-Ekhbariya Saudi channel.

He said that when Lebanon disavowed itself from voting on the U.N. Security Council resolution on Syria and from the Arab League FMs closing statement proves that this cabinet is controlled by Hizbullah and Syria.

Asked if the Syrian-Lebanese relations forced Lebanon to take such decisions, Geagea said: “It’s true that good relations link Lebanon with Syria, but aren’t the people protesting in the streets (of Syria) also connected to the Lebanese?”

He ruled out that the Lebanese division over the situation in Syria will lead to local disputes, saying: “We can’t but respect the people’s will” in Syria.

“The crisis in Syria will end after a democratic free regime rises,” he remarked.

The LF leader stressed that the March 14-led opposition will escalate its parliamentary opposition to topple the cabinet.

“The government was paralyzed immediately after it began its tasks… The confrontations between the officials (in the cabinet) started and they are now trying to prepare for the Sep. 7 ministerial session,” Geagea told al-Ekhbariya.

He stressed that the March 14 camp began its opposition before the Syrian people’s uprising, noting that “the developments in Syria will affect the cabinet’s term.”

Geagea slammed accusations made by March 8 forces hinting that the March 14 forces are linked to an American-Israeli scheme in Lebanon.

He accused Hizbullah of being linked to an Iranian-Syrian axis, stressing that “the March 14 forces, Arab and International groups currently share this idea.”

Concerning Hizbullah’s rejection to cooperate with the Special Tribunal for Lebanon probing the assassination of ex-Premier Rafik Hariri, he slammed the stance denying that it is politicized.

“Hizbullah’s leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah can accuse the (STL) judges of being friends with Israel, but that doesn’t mean it’s true,” Geagea stressed.

He added: “Leaking the indictment by media outlets doesn’t prove that it (the STL) is politicized.”

Geagea urged Hizbullah to hand over the four suspects accused in Hariri’s murder.

Salim Ayyash, 47, Mustafa Badreddine, 50, Hussein Onaissi, 37 and Assad Sabra, 34 are all members of Hizbullah, however, their whereabouts are unknown.

No one would spit on a legitimate resistance.

It's a shame that such a large part of the people are either blinded, brain washed or part of the conspiracy.
There is no reason a national resistance can't be formed under the leadership of the Lebanese Army who is respected by all except the Hizb and it's acolytes.

Geagea speaks the obvious, however, he is being charitable. The "government" is not paralyzed. Such a statement presumes that absent the paralyizing agent, it would have freedom of movement. It is not the case. This government is a facade and a charade; a cover and a mere sham that is supposed to shield and hide the real government, the real authority which is Hezbollah.

Hezbollah is not paralyzed at all. It is freely working its agenda as the government of Lebanon under the double shield of the FPM which makes it look cross confessional, and Mikati which makes it look legitimate. Actually it is a monochrome Iranian entity that has highjacked the Lebanese State. If Geagea wanted to be accurate and speak the truth of the matter precisely he would have so said.

Real news would be if he or M14 had a solution to propose to this problem.

Then someone ask this low-life piece of filth why he collaborated with the Syrians, at the height of their occupation, against ebn balado only to spend 11 precious years underground frequented by rats and cockroaches while perfecting the art of collaborating with other enemies of Lebanon? A piece of filth like this criminal deserves to be hanged to dry for the crimes against his country, and especially the Christians. But what can you do with a population that is blinded by hatred and lost all sense of common sense?

@ Jabal Habal. Dr geagea is the only one that has still lebanese convictions in his speeches, stop calling us traitors because you know nothing of what truly happened, we had to take israeli weapons to protect ourselves from palestinians and syrians , which former authorities who were cowards agreed to let enter lebanese territories via camps in the CAIRO TREATY, then it got hot with the palestinians who rejected the lebanese army authoity and started problems specially the PLFP which is a pure controlled by syria group unlike the PLO. so Pierre Gemayel asked at first Syria to stop the PFLP and after '' stopping it '' they remained in Lebanon, so we had to fight them and the PLO out. Just remember one thing , Moussa Sadr at the very end so the palestinians threat for you chiites and that is why i have a confirmed witness that knew Moussa Sadr and that he was sending weapons to the Lebanese forces of back then

And when our war was done in 82, cheikh bachir didnt agree to a peace treaty with Israel before all from all sects were ok with it, and the Israeli got angry and he left jerusalem in vert bad terms, which led to his assassination a week later via pro-syrian, but also because Mossad paved the way by removing security around him... and to invade Lebanon.
So quit talking about treachury, Hezbollah's Hassoun isnt worth a fingertoe of bachir's as he is hiding like a coward rat 1231 levels underground, while bachir was at the heart of all violent combats for 15 years. what resistance are you talking about? is that a resistance ? you managed to get through a month of bombardement? and you got 600 killed and 1500 civilians + 11 billion of destructions? we held Zahlé with 100 kataeb commandos for 100 days against tanks, helicopters, mortars, without food or anything and we managed to kill more than 2000 syrian soldiers and lose not more than 10 of ours, go learn some history of true resistance

Dr Geagea is a patriotic,fearless and loyal leader.He has proven to be steadfast,The Great Dr Is a symbol of strength in a country were leadership is lacking.Regardless how great or effective a leader is there will always be individuals who would want to be critical,however these individuals and there peers should be grateful they are permitted to express there distorted views and be thankful to people like Geagea for creating that environs.Dr Geagea I thank you and all the brave individuals for fighting to give us what we have today, that is the ability to express one's opinion regardless of it's contents.
