Geagea’s Party Biggest Threat to Christians in Lebanon, Aims to Create Civil War: Nasrallah

Geagea’s Party Biggest Threat to Christians in Lebanon, Aims to Create Civil War: Nasrallah

Alwaght-The secretary-general of Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement said the far-right Lebanese Forces (LF) political party, led by Samir Geagea, is the “biggest threat” to Christians in Lebanon, warning the former militia group against “miscalculations” that would plunge the country into a civil war.

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah made the remarks in a televised speech on Monday, following the deadly violence that targeted a Hezbollah gathering in protest against a judge’s investigation of last year's Beirut Port explosion.

The violence saw Geagea’s militias firing on Hezbollah’s supporters, leaving at least seven people dead and 60 others injured.

“The biggest threat to the Christian presence in Lebanon and the security of the Christian community is the Forces party," Nasrallah said, stressing that "the Lebanese Forces party's project to create civil war in the country.”

While “our main war is with the Zionist occupiers,” the party is seeking to falsely portray Hezbollah as Lebanese Christians’ adversary, noted the Hezbollah chief.

This is while Lebanese Christians can ask their coreligionists in Syria, where Hezbollah has been assisting the army against Takfiri terrorists, “about Hezbollah’s treatment of them” and find out how the movement defended the Syrian Christian community, Nasrallah said.

“We are not considered to be any threat against you, but the Lebanese Forces’ party and its chief are sources of danger to you,” he stated.

Nasrallah, meanwhile, said his movement reserved the right to protest attempts at “politicization” of the Beirut Port blast.

The leader of the resistance said the Lebanese Forces party is trying to incite Lebanese Christians against Hezbollah presenting it as an enemy.

Sayyed Nasrallah gave a detailed explanation of last Thursday's events, stressing that the security apparatus gave Hezbollah a confirmation that the first bullets were fired by the militia men from the Lebanese forces against the unarmed protesters.

This, he says, was all part of a plan to drag Hezbollah specifically to internal conflict orchestrated by foreign sides. Nasrallah said the US is also trying to provoke an internal conflict in Lebanon, the same way it did in many other nations. Yet Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the scheme will not succeed.

“Hezbollah has 100,000 fighters; we did not prepare them to fight a civil war. We prepared them to defend Lebanon and our land and water and petrol and natural gas which is being stolen as we our eyes. We prepared them to protect the Christian and Muslim towns in Baalbek-Hermel. We were killed in Kahldeh and we were silent, we were killed on Thursday and we were patient. It does not mean we are weak or incapable. We are thinking straight and we have ethics. I tell the Lebanese forces party and its leader, don’t miscalculate. Be disciplined. Learn from your wars and learn from our wars.”

He warned that in the event of a military conflict, neither Israel, nor the US or Saudi Arabia would come to the help of any warring side.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed in his speech today that the main guarantor for peace and stability is the Lebanese state and the Lebanese army and therefore Hezbollah will put their faith in the law to give justice to the martyrs who fell on Thursday.
