Geagea says border clashes not real support but 'show' with political goals


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea said Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah acted defensive even though no one has accused him or Hezbollah of killing the LF local coordinator in Jbeil, Pascal Sleiman.

Geagea said in an interview Tuesday with Sky News Arabia that the LF had called for restraint and did not accuse Hezbollah of what he called a political assassination.

"Hezbollah is the strongest militarily but not the strongest politically," Geagea added, citing that Hezbollah has failed to elect his presidential candidate while the LF's candidate Jihad Azour could have won hadn't the Axis of Defiance obstructed the second round of vote.

Geagea also criticized Hezbollah for exchanging near-daily fire with the Israeli army since the start of the war on Gaza. "They call it a unity of arenas, but their real goal is to reserve a seat in the Middle East settlement," Geagea said. "This is not real unity but a show."

Geagea also dubbed the resistance as "an armed movement only aiming to alter the domestic balance of power and to strengthen Iran's position in the region."

Geagea and LF are not strong neither in politics or anywhere else.
If he wants a President so bad, we are not in a hurry and can wait forever until you accept Franjieh.

He’s a loser. But better a loser than Iranian scum.

Ottomans seemed to never understand that there is no seat at any table when one has been completely defeated, there are only left overs of the spoils divided among others.
