Geagea urges Christians to support the Syrian revolution

geagea def 30Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea decried Friday attempts to portray the Syrian crisis as one targeting Christians, stressing that the religious sect should continue to support the Syrian revolution .

“We as Christians cannot be but with the Syrian revolution,” he said during a conference dubbed “the Christians in Lebanon and the Middle East: Challenges and Prospects.”

He admitted the Syrian revolution is facing some problems but nevertheless it remains on track to achieve democracy ..

“There is some chaos in the Syrian revolution, but without any doubt it is a conflict that is aimed to achieve democracy.”
” Geagea said

He accused his Christian opponents in Lebanon of exploiting events in the Christian Syrian town of Maaloula that was recently taken over by rebels for the sake of President Bashar Assad .
“Some politicians are creating a huge drama about Maalula in Syria in an attempt to hint that the conflict in Syria is about Christians.”

He stressed that the conflict in the region is not between a Muslim majority and Christian minorities.

“We realized that some figures or Lebanese Christian groups, whenever something happens in Maaloula try to portray the conflict in Syria as anti-Christian and this a big hoax,” he said.

Geagea said this scheme aimed at portraying the Assad regime as the protector of minorities “is an effort aimed at prolonging the life of the regime .”

Geagea decried calls that the minority Christians in Lebanon should ally with the Assad regime and the Iranian government and said such a suggestion destroys Christians.

Geagea also ridiculed the so-called alliance of minorities, saying the Assad regime has strongly attacked Christians.

Geagea said Christians should decide their own fate. “If we hold onto dictatorships, then we would vanish.”

“The Christians in the Orient are part of the social fabric. We are not immigrants. We don’t need protection from anyone.”

Geagea urged the Christian community to remain put in the region and support the Arab Spring.
“The Christians should remain in the communities of the Orient. So we should adopt their causes and the foundations of the Arab Spring.”

“Whether we like or not, there are major historic changes in the region that are bringing more freedoms.” He added

    Stop geagea ya Geagea, you make me puke with your BS. “Geagea urged the Christian community to remain put in the region and support the Arab Spring” go tell that to Egyptian Copts or Malloula residents. The Christians in Syria and Egypt were happy with their governments who in hell are you to decide for them.
    You and the rest of M14 may want to go to Syria and help the revolution be my guest don’t forget to take Hariri with you, talk is cheap. You did enough damage to the Christians in Lebanon now shut up and leave the Syrian Christians alone.

    • libnan1

      Oh BTW “There is some chaos in the Syrian revolution, but without any doubt it is a conflict that is aimed to achieve democracy.” It’s the same democracy you find Saudi and the rest of the Sunni world. Just go to Bshari and eat Kishek.

      • Hannibal

        What is wrong with Kishek? Or Shankliish for that matter?
        Are you not patriotic enough to support our cuisine?
        One more thing… Please stop insulting the Sunnis… The majority of them are more tired of the takfiris than you are.
        Now really how old are you? and are you a qazam like the baldy you follow?
        Can’t you be like ORIGINAL and start following a new leader or at least be one? Do we have to be 14 or 16 or follow this idiot za3iim or that? Can we start fresh and get someone from outside the melleh? Like……
        me? LOL

        • libnan1

          There is nothing wrong with kishek or shankliish both my favorites. Sunnis need to reminded of what they have done to Lebanon, some might be tired of takfiris but they prefer them over others.
          I’m old enough to remember being shot at as a 12 year old by our neighbors running away from our house, old enough to remember the hatred we suffered by the same people you think I’m insulting.
          I don’t follow any leader, I just follow a message so if your message is the same as the GREAT I will gladly write poems.

            Sunnis supported the Army when they invaded the camps mind you. While Nassrallah was telling the Army that attacking Fatah Al Islam in the camp was a RED LINE.. Sunnis are tired of being attacked in Tripoli instead of the villain Alwaites who are supported by hezzies.. Sunnis were used in Saida to provoke them against the Army. the Army attack them first on order of hezbollah and your sweetheart Shamel who was used in the process so he can be promoted to general. Little you know Nassrallah didn’t choose him to be the General. Sunnis were throwing rocks in tripoli at palestinians when they attacked the army. let’s get your facts clear. One last thing I am a big supporter of the army and i have relatives there and no matter what I consider it as a protector of Lebanon. but it was used against the Sunnis to create problems between them and the army. Yes the takfiris do not care about their fellow muslims and they deserve what they got anyway. Stop your nonsense and go eat your sour Shanklish.

        • Hannibal, I would eat the ass of skunk with wasabi before I would get near kishik!! I can honestly say that I served hard prison time in boarding school in lebanon between the kishik menu and the ill treatments of nuns, I got so skinny I could walk between rain drops.
          As for shankleesh it reminds me of my previous neighbours socks in canada where the custom is to take shoes off to come inside house, I could almost swear that he throws his socks at the wall and if they dont stick to it he would wear them again the next day.

            Geo … I have a French friend who felt the same about Jesuit ‘boarding school’ in post-war France … made him ‘tough’, but gave a lifelong hatred of all Catholics … eventually realized it was all religions … found some internal peace with Buddha; however, never really lost the effects.
            Zen philosophy keeps him ‘level-headed’. You may have found it naturally through the birds or the cars. 🙂
            As for the socks from overly warmed or naturally sweaty feet in Canada … one needs to decide, I suppose, if wet footprints are less an aggravation than road salt, snow, and mud, tracked in on the boots of 7 months of such yucchy ground conditions. :-)))
            Some, even in boarding school, never learned to wash socks ….

    • nagy_michael2

      Ask Aoun where are the Soldiers who were dragged in their underwears to Syrian jails.. what does he tell you.. nothing.. do not criticize anybody else when you act like them..

      • libnan1

        I like to sniff some of the stuff you’re sniffing dude. Aoun always kept an eye on abducted soldiers. He does not have to tell you the status. All these Heroes up on the hills did not fight, die or taken prisoners for Aoun’s sake. They died for Lebanon which may include you and others that criticizes Aoun. If these cowards in M14 supported the Lebanese Army (not Aoun) we would not be where at but no they went on to fight the LAF, kidnap them and shoot them in the back. They bent over to the Syrian regime and asked their help to get rid of our GREAT but he came back to save Lebanon from the gangsters of M14.

        • Hannibal

          Gangsters THEY ARE… But savior HE’S NOT… lol

          Come and Snuff my butt you little slut..

      Who did endangered the status quo of the christian in Lebanon more than your supreme human being Aoun?

      • libnan1

        My “supreme human being Aoun” was trying to get the Lebanese including the Christian out of gangsters control and fold them under the government umbrella. But no the gangsters wanted to stay in control and fought the LAF and went even further to ask foreign governments to help them rid of our honorable armed forces. These people should all get the capital punishment -treason.

        • Maborlz Ez-Hari

          Liban1 if you are praising your Aoun based on past indiscretions by the Sunni or geagea or whoever, then you are a bitter, stubborn and ignorant hmorr. I’m not telling you to support Harriri, geagea, Jumblat, the revolution or anyone in particular as I am waiting for some fresh faces with new voices but stop it with your general, he is an eyesaw in the lebanese political arena and offers little apart from spiteful comments based on past events. Be a man and stop brown nosing whoever is most powerful at any given time, today it’s H.A but you don’t know what tomorrow will bring!

          • libnan1

            YES mabolz I do praise Aoun because he was a leader of the LAF that never killed any innocent people based on their religion while others you mentioned did kill innocent people for no reason. Thanks for your kind words, history might not repeat itself but it rhymes. Bitter, yes I am bitter as far as hmorr (are you from Kura) you must be looking at the mirror. Go take a dip in the ocean close to you.

          • Maborlz Ez-Hari

            I think you are in need of a nice sahan kishak up in the mountains of Bshari. Maybe you will see that even though we are different really we are the same. Take the general with you I’m sure he would like it as well.

        • Tk

          I feel so sorry for you. Are you telling all the people that is not standing with him need some capital punishment ? all the people that don’t like the interference of foreign other country in lebanon need to have capital punishment. An extreme Iranian ideology , that is own future perspective is killing any freedom or sense of democracy and all that for only a Presidential seat ????
          And you are telling me , if we don’t follow this ideology we need to all die with capital punishment???

    • Maborlz Ez-Hari

      Where we’re the Syrian Christians when the Lebanese were being being killed, you have a very short memory! Nonetheless I do feel for them but do not for a split second kid yourself, Assad is an abomination on the people of Syria and on us in Lebanon. You can kiss his ass till your heart is content but he will wipe his boots on your face in a sec. Stand up and stop sucking arse your an embarrassment to the Christians and all Lebanese.

      • nagy_michael2

        Yes I remember one of the Syrian Christian family were telling me that they had a big party in their village and shot bullets in the air in celeration of bashir gemyal killings..

        • 5thDrawer

          MANY cases of these stupidities cannot be said to be attributed to any silly religious concept at all … but come from the small minds in those ‘Tribal and Cultural’ moments where all enjoy ‘doing the dance’ … around a great bonfire in old villages, or around burning tyres as we see in the ‘enlightened’ modern cities.
          In parts of the world where killing has been determined to be ‘anti-social’, they are even ‘re-enacted’ for tourists.
          Sometimes the chants are basically a way of saying: ‘I’m alive. I’m alright, Jack’.
          Euphoria … ‘I escaped the Nosh-Pit’. :-))

        • Maborlz Ez-Hari

          Worse still are the lebanese idiots who are fighting each other over some one else’s war! Support them yes but why start a new war with your own country men? Only one word to explain it ” HAMIRR”

    The christians don’t need anybody to protect them which is what ive been saying the whole time.
    Im sure if they were being targetted intentionally, they wouldn’t be procastrinating, but people like auon just want to feel like they have achieved something in life before they die, even if it means making people run around like headless chickens.

    • libnan1

      You are right Reason, we don’t need anyone to protect us. We have enough brave men like the ones fought on the hills overlooking Beirut under the command of the GREAT Aoun. It took the second strongest army in the mideast (your buddies back then) with the help of the coward militias and the blessing of the world to defeat these strong men. Just imagine what this army would have done if the Lebanese had supported it.
