Geagea:The conflict is between the logic of state and statelessness


Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea told a visiting delegation from the a Zahle University that the latest events in Lebanon are the result of a conflict between the logic of the state and the logic of statelessness.

The logic of statelessness and lack of institutions is reflected by demands for chaos in the country, Geagea said and added :The logic of the statelessness is also expressed through illegitimate military authority, such as during the recent Beirut clashes, he added.

His comment may be a possible reference to the bloody street battle that shook the Borj Abi Haidar neighborhood in the Lebanese capital on August 24, pitting supporters of the Iranian backed Hezbollah against the pro-Syrian Al-Ahbash militants —also known as the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects. 3 people were killed in the clash including a Hezbollah senior official.

March 14 leaders including PM Saad Hariri called for a weapons-free Beirut, but Hezbollah and its all General Michel Aoun rejected the idea

The weapons “serve other interests. ” Geagea told a delegation from Jbeil last Friday

“As far as we know the resistance should be in occupied territories. Is Beirut occupied?” Geagea asked.

  1. Weapon that the army and de facto the state don,t have any control, reveal that other interest are being serve. These interest are against one united nation under one flag one army and one order. He is true to himself and coherent with is principle.

    from the first day he got out of jail till now, geagea’s statements remained the same. his analysis of the political situation in lebanon was and still is very accurate, so far so good, reflecting the opininons of a great deal of lebanese across the board.

    the stand he is taking concerning all the illegal miltias’ weapons including hezballah’s, his constant appeal for the lebanese government to spread its authority throughout all lebanese territories, all these revendications are steadily increasing his popularity among lebanese.

    he is playing totally by the books and within the constitution, he is reorganizing his party and attracting a lot of the new generation.

    after reverting to his newly adopted non military approach of convincing logic, he is slowly but surely gaining grounds in the christian camp against both aoun and frangieh.

    he definitely needs more political backing and support in all aspects from the cedar revolution coalition to be able to withstand the virulant attacks they have been subjected since 2005.

    I totally agree with Geagea and he’s true to his statment. this is different person from the milita days. At least he changed for the better unlike others who are harming the interest of Lebanon.

    how is the other side of the river today?

    1. geagea has always been right when the lF were bearing arms in the past they did have all the right to do so they needed to defend themself and there cities and there communities at the time when the army was not operating the governement was unable to perform its duty to efend the lebaneese people but time move on now the situation has changeg the governement is back on its feet and the army has recovered there strenth so there is no need for militias arms no more the same thing apply for ha they defended themself and there area like the lF did in the past but time to move on and work with army now just like all the other militia doing the leaders they could be in the snate and the militia members can join the army so if the governement rule applied on the LF the same rule should apply on all militias wether in the north or the south or the east or the west a sovreign democratic state should have only one governement and one army that how the rest of the civilized country in the world operate and that is the only way lebanon can or should operate or it is going to be a failed state for ever
