Gemayel to Nasrallah: We are not afraid of you
Kataeb leader Sami Gemayel accused Hezbollah of "hijacking the presidential juncture" after he met Tuesday with the ambassadors of Qatar and Egypt.
"Dialogue is not imposing a candidate in a fruitless meeting," Gemayel said, accusing Hezbollah of being the party refusing dialogue and solutions.
"Both French and Qatari initiatives will fail if Hezbollah insists on its candidate, instead of meeting us halfway," he said.
"We are the ones who need guarantees," Gemayel went on to say, as he slammed Hezbollah central council member Sheikh Nabil Qaouq who dubbed the opposition a burden.
"Are you threatening us?" Gemayel asked. "All what we want is equality under the constitution and the law, and to live in peace in our country."
"We are not afraid of you," Gemayel told Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah. "You have to accept that we are equal," he said.
"The truth is not that the Lebanese are in disagreement. The truth is that one party is refusing but to impose its candidate," he charged, claiming that this is why all foreign initiatives to break the presidential impasse are failing.
