Geagea: Al-Rahi’s Stance on Syria Endangers Christians!!

Local Editor

Lady of Deliverance terrorist explosion, Feb 1994Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on Monday slammed Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rahi’s stances on the Syrian crisis, saying his remarks “put all the Christians in the region in danger.”

Geagea’s fresh position came while Lebanese people still commemorate his terrorist crimes attacking Our Lady of Deliverance church, North of Beirut, Feb 1994, in which 11 innocent prayers were martyred.

“I can’t hide the fact that his statements had infuriated me, as they support the regime and contradict with our entire history,” Geagea said in an interview on local media outlet.

Geagea with his bodyguards“I cannot be proud of this rhetoric. What regime is more hardline than the Syrian regime? What regime has committed only 1% of the Syrian regime’s acts against us? It is illogical to support a killer regime?” the black-history man in serving the US-Israeli project said.
After a long public trial in 1994, the Lebanese judiciary issued a death sentence against Samir Geagea. It was later reduced to hard labor for life.

Among the charges against him were the assassination of Prime Minister Rashid Karami in 1987 and the assassination of Dany Chamoun, President of National Liberal Party, with his wife and his two sons in 1978.

The LF leader called on the patriarch to “quickly act in order to clarify Bkirki’s stance.”
“It is distressing that Bkirki’s position has changed,” he lamented, referring implicitly to the former Patriarch’s stance Nasrallah Sfeir, who strongly opposed the Syrian regime.
