Lebanon Christians tell Hezbollah: We don’t need you


MP Fadi Karam, a key member of the Lebanese Forces responded Saturday to Hezbollah official Sheikh Naim Qassem by , saying the Christians don’t need your protection and Jounieh residents have always been able to defend themselves.

“Just like all the previous invaders could not reach Jounieh, not ISIS nor anyone else could do so now. But the important thing is for Qassem’s thinking not to infiltrate Jounieh through his Christian allies,” Karam said in a statement in a possible reference to Hezbollah’s Christian ally MP Michel Aoun.

Qassem who is the deputy of Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria ( ISIS) would have erected checkpoints in Jounieh, Beirut and Sidon as well as every other region in Lebanon if the his group had not intervened in Syria.

“Thank God we went to fight in Syria at the right time, and we were in the place we should be to prevent this grave danger,” Qassem said Friday evening stressing that the threat would not have been restricting to the Bekaa Valley if the party had remained idle.

Hezbollah has been trying to woo the sympathy of the Lebanese Christians by using scare tactics, taking advantage of ISIS criminality .

But the party that gambled on making ISIS the “Trojan horse” failed to lure Christians into the game of illegal weapons , according to analysts

Other Christian leaders chastised Qassem

March 14 coalition’s secretary-general, Fares Soueid responded to Qassem by saying: “Hezbollah insists on insulting Christians in a very clear way when it pretends as if the party now has a new job.”

“Hezbollah wants to pretend as if it is now transformed into a Christian army in Lebanon to protect [Christians] from ISIS threats,” Soueid told Al-Joumhouria in remarks published Saturday.

“Protecting people is the reasonability of the Lebanese state and if the state is incapable, Christians never neglected [such a task] and do not need Hezbollah to protect them.”

“Christians have always taught people about the resistance and will continue to do so.” Soueid said

Elie Mahfouz, a member of the March 14 alliance and head of the Change Movement slammed Qassem and told him :
“O Sheikh Naim Qassem not ISIS nor your party and before them the Palestinian militants were able to invade Jounieh , just ask your ally Change and Reform bloc leader MP Michel Aoun , who is the one that described Kesserwan as the capital of the Maronites . Sheikh Qasim you obviously don’t know the Maronites and Aoun is not one of them.”

He added: “Shame on you for paying the Shiite youth to defend a criminal like ( Syrian president) Bashar al-Assad against the Syrian people “.
He continued : “Sheikh Qassem, Lebanon paid the highest price, as a result of Hezbollah’s abnormal behavior .”

          You can say what you want TK. The truth is without HA, Lebanon in it’s current environment would crumble. And lets face it, more Christians support HA than the likes of you would like to believe.

          In saying that, I wish for nothing more than to have a Government that really gives a shit about the people, A government who actually give the army the authority to protect the people and our borders. Then and only then HA should hand in it’s weapons.

          1. Let me tell you one thing and straight to the point. Every Christian need to have a weapon in his home. Your nisrallah, comming out on the tv with a lebanese flag behind him talking about internal national affair!!!. How dare he even speak about lebanon and the people of lebanon? Let him go and f***k himself with his iranian counterpart…. we do not need people like him in Beirut. Also whether you like it or not the mount of lebanon is only for christian. You dare point guns on us, we will shoot you.

            Nisrallah and isis let them get out of lebanon, and create their own war somewhere else . If they want to kill themselves , I don’t give a shit. out of lebanon bunch of miserable bastards

          3. we need to say the truth.. no more political correctness . look at his logo , a lebanese flag with their flag…
            this is bullshit.

            Blah Blah Blah, Your anger tells me that the truth hurts. Oh and btw, HA could take Lebanon in 2 hours if they wished. And nobody could do a dame thing about it.

            And there’s the continuous ‘war talk’. Resist all. Pound the chest.
            I’m ‘on top’ of the sand-hill. Tsk.
            They tried it a few years ago …. over a ‘private’ communication ‘spy-wire’.
            Didn’t seem to work out well ….

            It’s not war talk 5th, only facts. There will come a time when all of HA’s haters in Lebanon (which btw only count for a few) will eat their words. But of course these few will never admit it.

            Perhaps … but does that make it ‘right’?

          8. Anti ISIS Avatar

            5th to be honest, with the current pathetic government in place, Yes, it does make it right. HA has no choice.

          9. 5thDrawer Avatar

            True enough .. pathetic … and a Looney Aouny backing Nastyrallah to make it so. I don’t understand the ‘general thinking’, of course, as a non-functioning government is one the of things killing my starving friends and the whole mess of ‘Non-Lebanese’ factions isn’t helping at all. As a ‘country’ it should admit it doesn’t work at all. Little packs of Militias not thinking ‘together’ … only ‘mine’.
            Although, I’d agree with TK that it isn’t Iran’s.
            That ‘Accord’ to stop a civil war should have been altered a long time ago, and a Constitution written for a country. Without Syria in it.
            Might have been … without Sunni/Shia crappola getting in the way.
            Hezzys won’t fix that either .. it works for them and Iran.

            Anti from what im reading your choosing to believe that HA is an honorable outfit, without taking into consideration undeniable contradictions in its history. To quote the old “birds of a feather” saying doesnt mean you can’t think for yourself and grow enough courage to question HA behavior towards Lebanon in general. Bragging about their firepower to other lebanese is not honorable its a heavy handed dispicable act. The sad part is many shiite people are welcoming, hospitable and honest good friends however their loyalty to someone who is not loyal to Lebanon is a major stumbling block to a united country. The charisma and magnificent speeches that come from Nasrallah are second to none but it doesnt mean we should take the bait. Start thinking for all not just your own.

          11. 5thDrawer Avatar

            Anti … you may have points in the telling … but who makes ‘Governing’ pathetic?
            Tripolian-Lebanese did NOT notice Hezzys ridding them of the Nousra-isis types stockpiling weapons and jousting with Alawites over the heads of the Christians or sniping at them, and burning homes and KFC’s or whatever was within bomb-range, for almost 4 YEARS after ASSad began his war. The idiot Government was prevented in getting it’s act together by ‘power-trippers’ – as it is NOW – to tell the Army OR ‘security’ to go do what it should have done from the first shot, and when they finally did, it cost a lot more than it would have, in property and body-damage/deaths, than it would have earlier … and those who could flee (of any sect) did, also driving down an economy still suffering.
            We can mention a real ‘equal-security’ GOOD GUY also being bombed out of existence, making one street in Beirut look like it was Syrian-Allepo.
            If an Army – as it should – follows directives from government, it wasn’t getting any because no-one cares for ‘others’ in what was supposed to be ‘a country’. Hezzys ONLY look after their own interests. I think most of the ‘SECT_CRAP’ people do the same.
            There are ONLY TWO sects fighting, and making life miserable for everyone else … Sunni and Shia … the ‘radicals’ of each are NOT put down by ‘their own’ sects.
            There is no ‘Rule of Law’ for Militias, as there is for an Army. They do their own things. Because they really do NOT have the concept of ‘Country’ in mind. They see everyone else as ‘enemy’, or at least not worth worrying about, and RESIST Peace. For ALL.
            To me, it is not logical to support any of them.
            But it is not ‘Christian Militias’ whacking away any more. They seem to accept the Military of the country, and keep the ‘hunting weapons’ under the bed these days.
            Hezzy does not support THAT concept.

          12. If I embrace the whole situation, Hezbollah is Lebanon sufferance, a militant stopple in possible peace between Lebanon and Israel

          13. 5thDrawer Avatar

            I’d agree … it’s the battle between the various concepts of that one god thing that all the ‘players’ can’t get right in their heads. And I do mean ‘all’.
            And yes, that simple.

          14. Israel and Lebanon can be unated and formed Canaan state instead sort of Islamic Persian or Orabic or Erdogan? chaliphates

            If you both got some real democracy, and a Canadian three-party-system (basic), then you’d be a lot better off. As the Greeks have shown, you can’t run a country with a different ‘party’ for each pack of block-heads. We have enough problems here with three … 😉 …. and the one Green who is smart and gets elected to chastise the others.

          16. Isocrates, not exact translation from ancient Greek: “Our Democracy is self-destructing because it abused the right of
            freedom and equality, because it taught the citizens to consider
            insolence as a right, illegality as freedom, impudence of reason as
            equality and anarchy as bliss.” but was and is much more better civilisazed than modern islamic? nightmare (spring?)

            seems so … 🙂

          24. Just to give you some fact about your 2 hours dream of taking lebanon.
            Back in 2008 , you closed the lebanese airport , when there was an attempt to get rid of your telecommunication. near the airport..
            you and your bastards, close the airports and couldn’t handle the situation alone. So you ask for Iran to send their elite murderers in lebanon using the airport. You and your iraning didn’t do shit. You attempted to attack the druze of lebanon and lost it dramatically. You think that the sunni of lebanon couldn’t retaliate? You think the christian of lebanon couldn’t do nothing? You speak of war and look what is happening to you in Syria. You think that the christians of lebanon are listening to the idiot Aoun? You think that the christian like Frangieh, or they even follow Geagea? The christian of lebanon understand very well how to protect themselves from you and anyone who attack them.
            we know that and we are more than ever prepared. Dare to touch us. and you will be surprised of what we will do .

        The ‘NOW’ problem ….
        “Further, argues Randa Slim, a Lebanese-American political analyst at the Middle East Institute, the military is severely overcommitted and faces restrictions on what it can and can’t do due to its need to court public opinion, a problem Hezbollah does not seem to face.
        “The army is about 35,000 strong, and they are now doing everything. They are engaged in every type of security activity … So there are some questions about resources,” she said.”

        Perhaps the reason Christians support, in some ways, the Hezbolites is that the weird ‘Sharia’ restrictions are not as great. 😉

  2. Protecting people is the reasonability of the Lebanese state and if the state is incapable, Christians never neglected [such a task] and do not need Hezbollah to protect them.”

    “Christians have always taught people about the resistance and will continue to do so.” Soueid said

    Amen. . .
    While these are strong words, and I am glad they have been spoken ( to quell the Hezzy propaganda) lets not go back down this path. . the 70’s and 80’s oh and 90’s hell the last 50 odd years have been enough. . .
    Put your support , strength and will behind , in front and beside the LAF. . let the army defend the nation.



    A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot
    survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is
    known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within
    the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the
    very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he
    speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their
    arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
    He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to
    undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no
    longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.
