Gemayel: One issue is not enough for alliance with FPM

Share:

Phalange Party MP Sami Gemayel told OTV on Thursday that his party cannot form an alliance with its political rival, the Free Patriotic Movement, since the two groups disagree on a number of key issues.

“[The Phalange Party and the FPM] cannot form an alliance based on one issue because because several other key issues divide us such as non-state arms and the Syrian crisis ,” Gemayel said in reference to Hezbollah arms and the uprising in Syria

Gemayel’s remarks come after the Christian parties the Phalange, Lebanese Forces and Free patriotic Movement jointly boycotted a parliamentary session on Tuesday that dealt with the draft concerning the striking EDL hourly employees issue.

According to local reports the majority of the EDL hourly employees are Shiites and for this reason Speaker Nabih Berri, who is the leader of the Shiite Amal Movement wants to change their status to permanent salaried employees. 1700 of the 2300 hourly employees are reportedly Shiites while only few hundred are Christians and the balance are Sunnis.

According to Taef accord Half of the employees should be Christians while the other half should be divided between the Sunnis, Shiites and the Druze

Gemayel said that Speaker Nabih Berri should take the boycott into consideration.

Gemayels comment also comes after , FPM MP Ibrahim Kanaan told OTV that there was no problem against “expanding” the boycott agreement to include more than one issue

The Change and Reform bloc is closely associated with the Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah led March 8 alliance while the Phalange, Lebanese Force are closely allied with March 14 alliance

      Shirdel … really … you need to be more specific in questions. It is not enough to say a number in Liban … you have to ask how the number was formed, what colour it was written in, how it came to be known at all, and if it can be verified by months of ‘dialogue’, in a place where no history can be written.
      First Rule: If you ask a question, I must ask a few questions back.
      Before or after ‘amalgamations’? Before the voting in that last free election? Or after Hezzy didn’t like getting only 2 seats out of 30 in that election? Are you counting ‘Sects’ too? Or only people who want government for all?And as for those few hundreds elected locally to represent the people, are you wondering where they stuck them after, since they seem to have little input in running anything??
      And … are you a SPY?? (Which would automatically make you an Israeli spy of course.)

      Whew .. I could be shot for talking to you at all ….

    Ahlaaaaaaaan be Moslems, ma3 el salaami ya Christians… Yaaaaaaaaay religion!!! Religion is poison specially those based on the Jewish mythical stories… NO archeological records were ever found in Egypt to substantiate the existence of Jews in Egypt… Yet all believe the story of Moses etc. etc. etc. None of those stories ever happened. So shed the religion and join in one nation as Middle Eastern dwellers. NO RELIGION! It works believe me.

      Religion or no Religion the human race has a brain like a rotten apple. They will find a way to hate each other, even as one nation under one flag….and worse than Religion.. Humans have been created to love and to hate , so we do have a chose. What way will we go, well I know which way it,s been for 1 million years….So I don,t think Religion is the problem, but its easy to blame something than to blame ourselves……poor humans……
