BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The leader of the Lebanese Forces, Samir Geagea, rebuffed the victory in ‘Arsal that was dedicated to the Lebanese people by Hezbollah’s Secretary General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

“If Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah wants to dedicate something of value to the Lebanese, let him hand over his weapons to the Lebanese army and engage in political action, the same as we all did. This step has been overdue for 27 years now,” Geagea claimed in an Al-Hayat interview.

“It is rather one episode in the series of battles that it has been fighting for the past six years in Syria to shore up (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad,” Geagea added, as quoted by Naharnet online.

Geagea has been an outspoken opponent of Hezbollah since his release from prison in 2005 for war crimes he committed during the Lebanese Civil War.

The country doesn’t belongs to Hezbo, Lebanon belongs to Lebanese people! HB scores only about 10% at the elections! Moreover, the whole UNSC voted the disarmament of ALL militias in Lebanon, thus, even China and Russia want to disarm HB Lebanese military branch! They may be very popular in Syria or Iran or Iraq, it’s FAR to be the case in Lebanon, including in the Shiite circles. And better the armed branch to relocate to Syria or Iran or else, there is no other solution! Their leaders want to launch another war against Israel, 90% of Lebanese don’t want! They… Read more »

Without Hezbollah kicking out the Israeli thieves the Lebanon would have been under Jew occupation as far as the Litani river.

LOL, Lebanese aren’t even Arabs, same for Syrian and Iraqis! Arabs are invaders here! Before “Muhammad’s Army” invaded in 7th century, acting EXACTLY like Daesh, EVERYBODY but nomads in these 3 countries was speaking Aramaic! They were (mostly) all forced to speak Arab and to convert to Islam, only those able to pay the Jiziah (actually the rich ones) managed to keep their traditions. You have around 85-90% of populations who actually are Semites! Do you know what is Aramaic and what are Semites? Aramaic is the language Jesus used, it’s the language of the Northern Jews! And Semites are… Read more »

How would you call selling your country to a foreign power, i.e. USA and being in a pro US militia where you live if not… Treason?
Hezbollah so being a foreign backed illegal military force, they’re traitors to their country…
Geagea spent 11 years in jail when Lebanon was under Syrian occupation, thus it’s still under Syrian/Iranian occupation and Aoun is a collaborator, like Maréchal Pétain, period.

If PLO hadn’t destroyed the country with GCC help on the behalf of Muslim Brotherhood for the sake of the struggle against Israel, a struggle that, in Lebanon only killed just twice as more as Israel in 69 years, but hey, Israelis are the evil ones and this land which was nothing else than a freaking desert with only 5000 inhabitants in Jerusalem in 1844 (incl. only 500 Arabs, 1300 Christians), if Iranians and Syrians hadn’t armed a Shiite (26% of population) to the teeth while the country’s economy was on its knees… The only Lebanon’s mistake was to believe… Read more »

If the US and Israel had not allowed the Khazar jews to steal Palestine in 1947 and flood it with their parasites there would be a far more peaceful Middle East.

If Hezbollah is smart, do exactly what he suggests. Do a PR blitz for all to see that Hezbollah will gladly pass some of its inventory of weaponry for the sake national unity and patriotic duty in Lebanon. In the meantime, Hezbollah can rearm itself with newer/ better equipment from whoever is willing to give or sell to it. End of the day, Hezbollah can asks him what has he done besides chin wagging?

Thus, as HB weight 10% of population, you consider Lebanon belongs to HB and not to Lebanese people?

This step has been overdue for 27 years now,” Geagea claimed => Absolutely true! They all did this : him, Jumblatt, the Gemayels, etc etc! It’s high time a political party with the only armed militia bullying all who don’t agree with their ‘opinions’ and hi-jacking Lebanese’s people will with NO public legitimacy other than their AK-47 and now much more now : tanks, ATGMs, even… Read more »

I know my comment will not be published, but know this. They only peoples who do not belong to the middle East are the Zio-Nazi Khazars pretending to be Jews. Hezbollah has preserved Lebanon as a unified country. It belongs there as all the Arabs who are true semites. The Zio-Nazi khazars want to dominate the entire Middle East and enslave the native Arabs, the true Semites whom the Khazars call ‘Amalek’ or pests. Hezbollah will never let them. This US puppet here wants them disarmed to hand over Lebanon to his US/Zio-Nazi masters. Your assessment of Hezbollah’s support is… Read more »
