Geagea: We Need New Government Independent of Hizbullah's Influence

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea slammed on Wednesday Hizbullah's fighting in Syria, warning that it will incur “severe consequences” on Lebanon.

He therefore demanded the formation of a new government independent of the party's influence, while saying that the LF supports a technical extension of parliament's term instead of the adoption of the 1960 electoral law for the parliamentary elections.

He made his remarks during a press conference to respond to Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's recent speech on Saturday.

“Hizbullah has demonstrated that its interests are above all else,” Geagea continued.

The party's actions are provoking Sunnis in Lebanon and are leading the country towards the abyss, he declared.

He therefore called on the Free Patriotic Movement to break it alliance with the party “otherwise it will have to bear the responsibility of the collapse of the Lebanese state.”

He also demanded the formation of a “salvation cabinet, devoid of Hizbullah's influence, that will be able to defend the country and its interests, away from the equation of the people, army, and resistance.”

Hizbullah is functioning independently from the Lebanese state and its laws and principles, he continued.

“The real problem is that there exists a gap between what the Lebanese people want for their state and what Hizbullah is forcing them to go through,” he said.

“The principles that the state is based upon are different than those that Hizbullah believes in, as demonstrated by Nasrallah's latest speech,” he noted.

Hizbullah has never missed an opportunity to diminish the authority of the state for its interests, he added.

The LF chief said that Nasrallah wondered what the Lebanese state and people have done since 2006 to confront Israel.

“Wasn't the March 8 camp controlling the state from 2006 until now?” asked Geagea.

“The March 8 camp had its hands on state institutions during and after the time of Syrian hegemony,” he remarked, therefore saying that the party should not be entitled to criticize an authority that it had the main power in.

“Hizbullah does not want a Lebanese state, but a new ummah that answers to Iran,” he said.

On Nasrallah's statements that the Lebanese army is not being properly armed, Geagea said: “The Lebanese people are being cheated in being led to believe that the Lebanese army is being armed.

“There is only one way to create a balance of power between the Lebanese and Israeli armies and that lies through asymmetrical war,” he said.

“The only way for the army to assume its responsibilities is through Hizbullah to get off its case because the party is not allowing the party to perform its duties,” he stressed.

In addition, he refuted Nasrallah's claims that the army is incapable of defending Lebanon, saying that Israel assaulted the country between 1949 and 1967, years before the party was formed.

Commenting on Hizbullah's fighting in Syria, Geagea accused Nasrallah of distorting the truth in the crisis.

He said that Nasrallah claimed that the party was combating American, Israeli, and takfiri agendas in Syria, wondering how these these contradictory agendas could unite against Syria.

The LF chief instead said that Hizbullah is using this claim as a cover for the party's real purpose for fighting in Syria and that is defending Iranian interests.

Several reports have said that takfiris make up no more than ten percent of the gunmen in Syria, he said, while remarking that Hizbullah itself and the Syrian regime used “to employ these extremists to do their dirty work, as demonstrated in the 2007 Nahr al-Bared clashes” between Fatah al-Islam militants and the Lebanese army.

Hizbullah's fighting in Syria will incur dangerous repercussions on Lebanon and it is leading the extremist Nusra Front to Lebanon, he warned.

The party is also paving the way for Sunni-Shiite strife in Lebanon and a consequent civil war “simply because Hizbullah's interests are above all else”, he cautioned.

    Geagea: I demand the formation of a government capable of defending Lebanon and achieving its interests, away from the equation of the army, people, and resistance.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:23

    Geagea: I urge the FPM to break its alliance with Hizbullah, because the country's fate is more important than a few parliamentary seats.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:22

    Geagea: Isn't Nasrallah aware that his fighting in Syria is provoking Sunnis in Lebanon? He can disregard this because Hizbullah's interests are more important. This is the bitter truth.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:21

    Geagea: Hizbullah's interests are more important than anything else and its fighting in Syria will have severe consequences on Lebanon.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:20

    Geagea: Hizbullah is fighting in Syria in order to defend Iranian interests.

    Geagea: Hizbullah and the Syrian regime employ these extremists to do their dirty work, as demonstrated in the 2007 Nahr al-Bared clashes.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:18

    Geagea on the takfiri threat spoken about by Nasrallah: All reports say that takfiris make up less than 10 percent of the forces in Syria.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:17

    Geagea: Why wasn't resolution 1559 approved before 2004? It was approved until after Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon and Israel was the only power that opposed the decision.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:15

    Geagea: The only time that Lebanon witnessed a period of Israeli occupation took place under Syrian hegemony.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:15

    Geagea: Nasrallah warned of Syria's collapse in the hands of the U.S., Israel, and takfiris. How can it fall in the hands of all of these powers combined in the first place?

  • 29 May 2013, 17:11

    Geagea: The entire world knows that an implicit peace agreement has been in effect between Syria and Israel since 1973. So tell me Nasrallah, what role does Syria play in the Arab-Israeli conflict?

  • 29 May 2013, 17:07

    Geagea: Nasrallah portrayed the Syrian regime as being very liberal and tolerant of political freedoms.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:07

    Geagea on Hizbullah's fighting in Syria: Nasrallah is attempting to distort the truth over the developments in Syria.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:06

    Geagea: Nasrallah said that the Lebanese have nothing but Hizbullah. This is not true. Why didn't Israel attack Lebanon during the 1950s and 60s at a time when it was assaulting Arab states? The Lebanese army has been effective in defending Lebanon before the party's existence.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:04

    Geagea: What kind of victory did Lebanon achieve during the 2006 war?

  • 29 May 2013, 17:03

    Geagea: Nasrallah said that Lebanon has Hizbullah, which helped liberate the country against Israeli occupation. Let us agree that the party has achieved temporary victories, but it never defeated Israel.

  • 29 May 2013, 17:00

    Geagea: The army will definitely perform better against Israel in case of an assault because it enjoys the people's support and is recognized by the whole world.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:59

    Geagea: Hizbullah is not allowing the army to perform its duties.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:58

    Geagea: The only way for the army to assume its responsibilities is through Hizbullah to let it be.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:58

    Geagea: There is only one way to create a balance of power between the Lebanese and Israeli armies and that lies through asymmetrical war.

    Geagea: The March 8 camp had its hands on state institutions during and after the time of Syrian hegemony.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:53

    Geagea: Since 2005 until now, Nasrallah did not allow Lebanon to enjoy any degree of independence, freedom, and sovereignty.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:46

    Geagea: Nasrallah wondered what the Lebanese state and people have done since 2006 to confront Israel. Wasn't the March 8 camp controlling the state from 2006 until now?

  • 29 May 2013, 16:43

    Geagea: Hizbullah has never missed an opportunity to diminish the authority of the state for its interests, leaving it as nothing but a skeleton.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:42

    Geagea: The difference between us and Hizbullah has gone beyond politics, but it is touching on fundamental principles.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:41

    Geagea: Nasrallah is suggesting linking Lebanon to Iran and Hizbullah's ideologies.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:40

    Geagea: Nasrallah criticized Lebanon's sectarian fabric. The very fact that Nasrallah made this position defeats the purpose of his proposal seeing as his party is purely religious.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:38

    Geagea: Nasrallah said that the Lebanese state is suffering from a fundamental problem in dealing with Israel. He consequently eliminated the whole of Lebanon and made it seem that only Hizbullah knows how to operate in the country.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:37

    Geagea: His only way to resist Israel is through violence. This will only lead to Lebanon's loss and defeat.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:36

    Geagea: Nasrallah had said that the Lebanese state had never dealt with Israel as an enemy.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:36

    Geagea: Hizbullah chief Nasrallah considers that his manner of resisting Israel is the best way to do so.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:34

    Geagea: The main problem we are suffering from is the idea of the state in Lebanon and Hizbullah's own vision of the state.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:33

    Geagea: Lebanon is headed towards the abyss.

  • 29 May 2013, 16:33

    LF leader Samir Geagea during press conference: A party that is supposed to be Lebanese has violated the national charter and all laws.

More of the same hyperbole from Geagea. What Lebanon needs are solutions not memorized political rhetoric ...

Geagea mentions the army yet delivers no suggestions on how to make it more effective. What about curfews for Tripoli?

Geagea says Hezbollah is not allowing the army to do its duties but in no way substantiates his allegations.

This is a failed speech even by Geagea standards. The people want answers and action not finger pointing.

Missing gcb1 29 May 2013, 18:10

Mentioning the authoritarian elements of the KSA doesn't justify the authoritarian elements of the Syrian regime.

Nasrallah made it seem as if the Syrian regime still had legitimacy to take part in political dialogue, as if its crimes in the past, prior to and throughout the uprising, can be completely forgiven.

first Geagea has said it the way it is, so you like it or not is up to you, but that is the reality of things.
the Iranian ambition to have a recognized control from iran to the Mediterranean sea is a dream that will not happen.
they were expecting a deal with western countries through a conference, but they are not even admitted on Syria discussions, thus their role is not accepted even for Syria.

@ geha ~ " Iranian agendas which is in short provoke an international agreement whereby they would control the area between iran and the Mediterranean sea which would be recognized by western powers as their area of influence."

Billions of dollars have been spent by the US-GCC cabal to create tension and violence across the region. It has been the US-GCC cabal that has destabilized Iraq, Syria and now Lebanon ... not Iran ... You have it all backwards dear geha.

mc - are you for real??? When the US was in Iraq, it was Syria and Iran supplying the Al-Qaeda with transit lines, money and weapons. It came to the point that the Maliki government threatened on several occasions to refer Syria to the United Nations. Iran and the regime in Syria have no problems wreaking havoc if it serves their interest. At that point no-one cared about Shia religous sites being blown up or hundreds killed in processions. There are cabals but Iran is at the head of the most ruthless one. The others are child-play in comparison.

- iran will be ousted from Syria.
- iranian influence in the Gulf countries will be minimized to the extreme by uncovering all their terrorist cells.
- hizbushaitan will be uprooted soon.
- then iran will implode from within as its people will ask for accountability from their tyrants leading them to disaster.

Perhaps it would be best to redraw the borders of the whole region. the north of lebanon and western iraq could be absorbed into a greater syria for sunnis.

Gog and magog ashkenazis will be defeated. People like you think arabs blame israel too much when in reality we dont blame them nearly enough. Their dirty hands are involved all over the world in civil wars, poverty, theft, instability and much more. Their filthy hands have caused much problems in africa without getting blamed for it, just to give you an example. Those who want to tell arabs what you just said are nothing but ignorant of what is going on and what has been going on ever since colonialism reached the middle east and africa.

Being recognized by all of Lebanese is what matters for a military institution. Unfortunately, Hezbollah has lost the privilege it once had of defending the country. That privilege was based on popular legitimacy, and it has lost that amongst the people due to its polarizing and unilateral actions.

Do not bring up the actions of M14. I am well aware of some members of Mustaqbal's involvement in Syria. Right now we are discussing Hezbollah, and I am simply criticizing Hezbollah's belief that it continues to hold the privilege of being Lebanon's primary defence force against external aggression.

Missing gcb1 29 May 2013, 18:55

"they have no activities known as 'shiaa activities'"

They hold public activities on Shiite holidays, and relate their struggle and resistance rhetoric to events in Shiite history. Their ideological foundation is also based and derived from Shiite scholars. Now I have no problem in an organization expressing its religious belief, but I do have a problem when that organization happens to present itself as the country's sole legitimate defensive institution.

If you want to present yourself as a Lebanese organization, then you must only present your organization on characteristics that all Lebanese can identify with.

And if u are not connected or shrewd enough to hire an international lobbyist, you don't deserve to lead the Christians. Step down and appoint a bright problem solver in ur place.

look at those brave FPMers who criticizes geagea critics of hezbollah... he is only repeating what aoun said for YEARS... so i guess aoun was wrong for years then why do you follow a leader that has been wrong for years?...
in both cases you are just a topic of laughter and mockery....

pityful FPMers.... repeating like parrots what their general says; no dignity whatsoever.....

LOL FT! bashar has been doing the same atrocities than those you are blaming salafis of... so why do you fiercly defend a party allied with a perpetrator of such atrocities too? means you are just an animal too, different kind but still an animal defending a terrorist regime that tortured butchered raped blow mosques smashed dead bodies under their tanks caterpillars....

how come then you are any different than those you blame? LOL

Geagea: blah blah blah blah blah blah

"Fal ya7kom al ikhwan".

"These are our allies in the March 14 movement",after Wahabi terrorists invaded, pillaged, and burned Ashrafieh to the ground on February 5, 2006.

Filthy Saudi-Wahabi puppet.

Bottom line, Hezbollah has been implicated and indicted, based on evidence, of the murder of Rafik Hariri, a former Prime Minister. This alone should force them to immediately be excluded from the current government and any future government.

Missing people-power 30 May 2013, 01:36

And that doesn't include the many murders they committed for which there is not enough evidence yet to indict them

“There is only one way to create a balance of power between the Lebanese and Israeli armies and that lies through asymmetrical war". I take it, H.A. will ever be ready to do that. I can't wait. Persian tactics! Yalla, instead go to Syria and die for the Persian puppet. He serves your master's interests in Iran.

I don´t know how the supporters of Hezbollah are still supporting them. My Shia brethren used to tell me that these weopons wont be used inside Lebanon or against any arabs, its just for the israeli enemy.
I accepted that explanation. But now what? Can you explain for me how we can accept that a political party that sits in the Lebanese government is involving itself in a war outside Lebanon? All credibility is gone for both Hezbollah and the sheep that are insisting on following the party...

So, what positive are there of HA being in the government--since 2005, they have started a war with israel, staged an 18 month sit in at parliment, staged an armed takeover of Beirut in May 2008, brought down 2 governments, been indicted in an assassination attempt on Geagea (of course, he isn't in jail), a minister's brother selling bad drugs to people (he isn't in jail either), probably involved in Wissam al-Hassan's assissination, and scared away the tourists.

And did I mention they continue to steal electricity and don't even fly the Lebanese flag? What makes them privy to being in the government again?

Missing peace 30 May 2013, 00:06

stop associating hatred for hezbis with hatred for shias... so convenient isn't it?

FT - it is true that as an individual you could be religious without being sectarian. NOT TRUE FOR PARTIES. THINK BEFORE YOU RESPOND.

Well said. Enough of Hezb charades & manipulations. Each day that passes by is an opportunity lost for Lebanon's advancement.

some of the comments on here are a disaster. I am actually surprised by the fact that very few people see the big picture. Btw can someone tell DR.G that the situation is beyond Bchare ?

This Dr. Arreet 7akeh is one unbelievable dude. Now I understand why he is adored by his followers, Drs. Arteena Satleh. It is his quality of not only predicting the future... well... umm... duh... wrongly???, but more so for predicting the past... well... umm... duh... wrongly???, too! Nobody beat Dr. Arreet 7akeh and nobody will. wlak min addak ya 7ak...awati dajjal? Just look at the bland faces on Drs. Arteena Satleh congregating at his of-late uncountable blabber-churning symposiums.
