Geagea says Narsallah comments don’t impress most Christians

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea has snapped back at Hizullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah’s remarks in a brief interview with MTV.

“Geagea, who wasn’t watching Nasrallah’s speech, smiled repeatedly when told about its content,” MTV said.

Asked about Nasrallah’s accusation that the LF had supported the Daesh and al-Nusra jihadist groups, Geagea said: “If someone is worse than Hizbullah it will be Daesh.”

As for the remarks that Nasrallah addressed to Lebanon’s Christians, Geagea said that only “a known minority will be convinced by these remarks.”

“But the majority of Christians, from various affiliations, have become in a position of extreme rivalry with Hizbullah and they will not be affected,” the LF leader added.

Geagea also said that he is not worried over the possibility of referring the file of Thursday’s deadly clashes to the judiciary.

“Let them do that. We will confront them with dozens of videos, pictures and comments,” Geagea added. “We will also filed lawsuits,” he said.

Told that this time he seems to be confronting Hizbullah alone, without former allies like Saad Hariri and Walid Jumblat, Geagea hoped that Kataeb Party chief Sami Gemayel will be with him in this confrontation as well as in the upcoming elections, “alongside all of the sovereign forces.”
