Geagea: What option is available today in Syria? Either Assad or Iranian influence, and therefore they choose Assad, and as long as the Iranian “recklessness” continues, we will witness the emergence of a new “ISIS” as long as the “recklessness” continues. Geagea: Whoever created ISIS is the other extremist axis, and the existence of dictatorship and extremism goes hand in hand with the presence of ISIS.
Geagea: Many al-Qaeda leaders, if they need documents in order to roam, resort to Iran, thus Nasrallah’s accusations against Saudi Arabia and his talk about Wahhabism are counterproductive.
Geagea: Sayyed Nasrallah’s speech was full of inaccuracies and lies, for example, the Syrian revolution, which we remember how it started and how the Gulf states supported it, who created ISIS on the Syrian arena? All the Syrian extremists were released from the prisons of Syria and Iraq at some point.
Geagea: The confrontation is bigger than a Shiite-Sunni confrontation, but rather between two political projects.
Geagea: There was a deal and it failed with regard to the file of a port explosion. Let us wait and see the next deal.
Geagea: The Lebanese state has been missing for 10 years, and because of the failure of some and the conspiracy of others, Hezbollah took over the leadership of the country. Geagea: No one believes that the International Tribunal has ended with what it did. Through the repercussions and results of its work, someone will complete the research, even if the pace of work is slow, but this day will come. Geagea: There is a plan to save Lebanon, but circumstances have their provisions, and quite simply, the parliamentary elections will take place after 4 months, and the change is in the hands of the Lebanese, as the system is still democratic, and as you vote, this process results in power.
Geagea: Taking up arms is never the plan of the “forces”, and what happened in Tayouneh showed that we never have the right to bear arms, as the incident showed that there is an institution in the Lebanese state, the Lebanese army, that is ready to protect the Lebanese and to separate between them. Geagea: Whoever wants to be president of the Lebanese Republic does not mean that he must appease parties or countries and crawl, but rather that he must remain on his principles and convictions, not the other way around, and the biggest evidence of that is what is happening at the present time. Geagea on his candidacy for the presidency: I am not a candidate in the classic sense, but in the natural sense, yes, I am a candidate, as the head of the “forces” is the head of the largest Christian party in Lebanon at the present time, but the most important issue today and before reaching the presidency is to find an actual republic.
Geagea: Hezbollah cannot attack Lebanese areas or people with the presence of the army, and this was shown by the events of Tayouneh, Shuwaya and Khaldeh, so why did Hezbollah not occupy a little while after the incident, for example? because he can’t. Geagea, who wants to visit Syria soon: When did he leave Syria to decide to go there today? “At length was in Syria”.
Geagea: We are making every effort to hold the parliamentary elections, and how Lebanon will be depends on what we will do for it, and the Parliament that we elected in 2018 brought us to where we are today, so let us decide our fate in 2022. Geagea on the Allies in the Parliamentary Elections: Wait and you will see who are the allies of the “forces” and everyone who shares our approach in saving the country is our ally and the majority of the Sunnis are our allies. Geagea: Recreating the scene of the “Maarab Agreement” and bringing Bassil as President of the Republic is not possible, because what happened once as a result of the intersection of certain circumstances at the time will not be repeated today, as this is an event that happens once in a thousand.
