BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – The leader of the so-called Lebanese Forces Party, Samir Geagea, tweeted on Saturday that if the March 8th political bloc really wanted former Prime Minister Saad Hariri to return to Lebanon, they should urge Hezbollah to withdraw from the crises in the region.

“If you really want Prime Minister Saad Hariri to return to Lebanon, then it will take one decision: to withdraw from the crises in the region,” Geagea tweeted, referring to Hezbollah.

Geagea’s tweet came in reference to Hizbullah’s involvement, without naming the party, in the war in Syria and other Arab countries as a power struggle intensified between Saudi Arabia and Iran, which backs Lebanon’s Hezbullah.

The self-proclaimed doctor has been a staunch opponent of Hezbollah and March 8th political bloc since his release from prison in 2005; he continues to call on Lebanon to disarm the former.

After WikiLeaks exposure of this guy groveling in Saudi Arabia for money, I have even less respect for him. As if war criminal is not enough, you can add puppet and ballsless to his name. He is always on his knees singing the Saudi tune.

What else can be expected from this saudi paid dog, who kisses alsaud’s feet. Not long ago, he was ordered to come to Riyadh to get his instruction from Bin Salman.

The Saudis are holding your PM hostage and they are about to launch bombing runs on Lebanon with the Israelis on the pretext that their problems in Yemen are owing to the Iranians and this Lebanese politician blames Hezbollah??? Open your eyes man, Hezbollah will be the front line defense forces for any Israeli land incursion. I despair that Lebanon is unfortunate to have these people of low calibre involved in running the country
