Gemayel: Use of force by March 8 never worked in Lebanon

Share:

Former Lebanese president and current Phalange Party leader Amin Gemayel said in a statement after meeting with President Michel Suleiman at the Baabda Presidential Palace said on Friday.

“The use of force by the ( Hezbollah-led ) March 8 coalition never succeeded in Lebanon.

He said what really matters now is the success of the parliamentary consultations away from pressure and threats.”

Gemayel explained that the nomination of Prime Minister Saad Hariri by March 14 to form the upcoming cabinet is “based on the 2009 parliamentary elections that gave us the majority.”

Many fear the political crisis could lead to street protests and violence .

Following the announcement by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon that Prosecutor Daniel Bellemare has handed the indictment to STL’s pre-trial judge , Hezbollah supporters wearing black and clutching hand-held radios quietly gathered around Beirut … an innocuous yet threatening display by the country’s most powerful armed force. Many parents picked up their children from school as word spread of the gatherings.

In a sign of just how high tensions are running, Wiam Wahhab, a pro-Syrian politician, warned security troops not to use force against demonstrators or they will face the same fate as Tunisia’s former President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, who was deposed last week.

The move brought down the unity government and further polarized the country’s rival factions: Hezbollah with its patrons in Syria and Iran on one side, and Hariri’s March 14 majority bloc on the other.

The U.S. has called Hezbollah’s walkout a transparent effort to subvert justice.

The court is widely expected to accuse members of Hezbollah of being involved in former PM Rafik Hariri’s killing, something the militant group has insisted it will not accept. The Iran- and Syria-sponsored group says the tribunal is a conspiracy by Israel and the United States.

Canadian prosecutor Daniel Bellemare said in a video statement Tuesday that the confidential indictment was an important moment for the people of Lebanon, the international community and “for those who believe in international justice, ” and r warned against speculating about the sealed indictment

  1. Thsi Suleiman is a snake ,shrewd man working with Hezbollah , his mater is Bashar.Hezbollah went to Aley yeserday and Kimatiye and the army did as usual nothing .Karame will be elected and a civil war will erupt !!!!!!!

    1. I don’t think civil war will erupt, I don’t think any party wants to start anything to turn around and get their ass kicked by HA. Instability will continue as long as the STL findings remain secret. That’s exactly why I think the STL findings will never become public because instability is what foreign powers want (Israel, Syria, US). President Suleiman knows many things that we are not privileged to, I believe he is a good Lebanese.

      1. Suleiman has no guts and a chicken and |Nahr el bared deal with Syria made him a president if he wasn;t weak the shiite Mp who belong to him will not dare to leave or himself had a deal with Hizbollah, I dont trust shrewd and sikent people ,most are assholes

    Don’t know if anyone has watched the news, but another disgraceful move by our government. Why the hell did Kahwaji visit damascus! What business does he have there?? Killon watyeen, 2owta min hayk ma fee!! What is there left to be proud of in Libon. What a fu&%ing disgarce. All the brave men that fought for our independance and sovereignty are turning in their graves.
    Any other low lives want to visit damas, go ahead, it is the ‘in thing’ to do so.
