March 14: Opposition will take on Hezbollah’s ‘militarist regime’

The 60 March 14 coalition MPs are preparing to hold a meeting at the Bristol Hotel on Sunday at 6:00 pm where they are expected to announce the camp’s final position on the participation in Prime Minister-designate Najib Miqati’s government.

Lebanon First bloc MP Okab Sakr said on Saturday that the March 14 coalition will become a democratic opposition “against a militarist regime.”

“We will be a democratic opposition that strips this militarist regime,” Sakr told New TV, in a reference to the armed Hezbollah group.

“Does the Resistance intend to protect Lebanon or [are we supposed] to fight to protect the Resistance?” the MP asked.

He also said that March 14 will not remain silent “on a rule that terrorizes the Lebanese people with the [use of] arms.”

Addressing Hezbollah, Sakr said, “Your arms are sacred in confronting Israel but they are unholy when they are used [against other Lebanese parties].”

The daily An Nahar reported on Saturday that the MPs’ statement will confirm the camp’s refusal to participate in Miqati’s government “because he failed to grant it guarantees it had requested, as well as the blocking minority.”

The MPs are also expected to condemn the way President Michel Suleiman and PM-designate Miqati are being treated by the March 8 camp.

Caretaker Prime Minister Saad Hariri is expected to hold an important speech after the meeting, but a date has not been set for it.

Meanwhile, a March 14 source told An Nahar that the camp did not sense any new position in Miqati’s recent statements in Tripoli, “but he repeated the same wooden statements on justice and the truth while the March 8 camp is preparing a ministerial statement devoid of any reference to the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and the arms possession outside the state.”

        We were on the same side on March14, 2005. But you tried to subjugate the Christian voice by “giving” us MP’s. You wanted to determine who we chose and from which list. Aoun told you to get stuffed. No-one can nominate his candidates, nor are any MP’s “given”. You offered him, from memory, 11 MP’s. Aoun ran without you, and gained 23MP’s.

        He allowed the Christians, despite the insistence on the Hariri-Kanaan law, to determine their choice.

        Then came the election result that showed a resounding victory for Aoun, and you all started the campaign against him the very next day and called the Christians stupid and blind. You underestimated Aoun, and you paid the price. Then they let Geagea out of the bag to start the Christian-Christian animosity again. Geagea played his role very well, but their investment in him proved worthless as he couldn’t make inroads, and this was evident in 2009. He was just a barking dog.

        In the government formation of 2005, you didn’t want to give the Christians behind Aoun, anything of significance in the government. You even gave Lahoud important ministries – including the Justice. And you joined with HA AND Lahoud, at the expense of General Aoun.

        And you want only minsters from FPM, and not FPM allies. Aoun told you again, no-one names his ministers. He has the right to nominate who he wants from his share. Hariri wanted to split Aoun and his allies.

        Aoun stood by the Christian right for a fair representation and the right for self-determination. And he knew their was a conspiracy to deny the Christians a rightful voice.

        And he pulled out of this coalition and joined in Opposition on his own in 2005.

        You tried to sideline Aoun, while Aoun ended up sidelining you.
