PSP: Half of Lebanon that was in the rally could not be ignored

According to local reports , Progressive Socialist Party official website commented on Sunday’s rally by saying: “The Half of Lebanon that was in the rally could not be ignored or allowed to be unnoticed despite the slogans and some of the provocative remarks that were made”.

PSP which reportedly described the gathering as a huge demonstration said “we cannot ignore their demands specially with regards to the use of arms internally for securing political gains “.

More than one million Lebanese of all faiths… Christians. Druze , Muslim Shiites and Sunnis demanded that Hezbollah be disarmed as they rallied to mark the sixth anniversary the Cedar Revolution, the uprising which inspired the recent revolts in the Middle East, International news agencies reported

The theme at Sunday’s rally is simple:” We want one state …one army to defend the country

lets unite the country and get rid of all the other states and armies .” the organizers said in reference to Hezbollah’s state within the state of Lebanon and the non-state ( illegal) arms.

The rally this year comes after Hezbollah’s military might was blamed for the collapse of the government . The Iranian and Syrian -backed Hezbollah brought down Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) imminent indictment which is widely expected to implicate Hezbollah members in the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri in 2005

Mikati was appointed in January as the PM designate with the backing of the Hezbollah March 8 alliance and MPs Walid Jumblatt and Mohammad Safadi following the collapse of Hariri’s unity government. March 14 leaders have repeatedly said that intimidation from Hezbollah’s weapons helped secure the parliamentary majority for Mikati’s nomination.

Jumblatt and his PSP parliament members reportedly switched allegiance to Hezbollah’s PM candidate, following threats by Hezbollah.

Jumblatt, Mikati and Safadi were all elected on March 14 electoral tickets during the 2009 parliamentary elections.

March 14 parties have announced that they will not take part in the cabinet Mikati is currently forming, and Hariri vowed last week to fight the use of non-state weapons “peacefully and democratically.”

During an interview with Times magazine Mikati denied he is a Hezbollah puppet

Jumblatt who heads the Progressive Socialist Party announced last week that he planned to boycott the rally ( even though he was not invited) but many of his supporters within his PSP and the Druze community were there according to local reports.

      Nobody can deny that the nation is divided but we (Lebanese NOT 8 NOR 14) are EXTREMELY tired with the old exhausted tired retired boring drooping faint run-down spent wasted worn-out rhetoric of Zionist this and Zionist that. When the Shia represented by Amal were exterminating the Palestinians in what became known as “7arb el mou5ayamaat” was that a zionist plan executed by the Shia? So stop the BS of zionist labeling and stop your racist remarks and hatred against the Jews (Jew lovers as you say) because there is a difference between zionism and judaism. I know many Jews who are against apartheid in Israel and to insult them does not do your cause any good as Noam Chomsky who rallied with hezbollah many times is also a Jew you ignorant moron.

      Why do you type in all caps? Hezbollah was GIVEN the ability to bring down the government by March 14 hbb. The Doha agreement stipulated we would give March 8 veto power if they agreed not to dissolve the government and for our trust we were betrayed. Your foolish arguments are insulting to our intelligence. We know how the Constitution works because we’re the side that believes in it. Your side wants us to revert to isolationism and turn Lebanon into a Pariah state

      Im not a pro-Israeli person, but lets be honest here Israel seiged Beirut in 12-13 hours in 1982. That was 1982, if Israel wanted to waste your Hezbollah, Iran and Syria all they would have to do is take a little piss and youd blow with the wind. Your a 5 year old hiding behind the internet, look at your pathetic comment “LEAVE LEBANON AND GO LIVE IN TEXAS OR ANTARCTICA”. Firstly, they left Lebanon they withdrew from every piece of Lebanese land almost. Hezbollah officially has no legitimate excuse for their purpose, so theyir new excuse is “Hey lets make Beirut another Tehran”. Your so worthless go hide with your Nasrallah in a hole. Mabye if you had real balls youd show your face.

    Jew and Zionist is like good and bad cop, but are the same goals of land grabbing, Hezbollah and Iran are after the same thing with a bonus–> imposing a Sharia State in Lebanon.
    Some have the tendency of incriminating Patriotic Lebanese like one or the other, But the objective is clear, Lebanese are tired of oppression, tired of living in chaos. And Patriotic Lebanese want freedom, We want to feel at ease, We want to work, make money and construct a Society without threats, We want to make Lebanon shine in the world, To share Our History victim of Plagiarism in which Jews and Islamic professors and writers are taking away Our achievements looting Our heritage.

    Historically after the year 642 when the Muslim expansion reached Lebanon but not able to control it, Lebanon was called the pocket of defeat, meaning that Islam was not able to conquest this Christian Land.
    Israelis use as a pretext of Land Grabbing the presence of HA.

    We are trapped in a dog fight for Our land.
    I ask You For Our Past, Present and Future stop Labelling each other and join forces, Embrace Liberty, I tell You “If important victories where easy to conquer anyone will do it” But is not easy and that I know, We loose precious time fighting among Ourselves than fighting the enemies who divide Our lives and Land.

    Embrace each other and shoulder with shoulder lets march together for the love of Our descendants, in Honour to the fallen Heroes, for Our past, Present and Future together will get rid of those who want to make You a puppet!
