28 May 2010. We have no trust, no security, no development, and no peace as long as the democratic and independent State can’t control and disarm all armed militias, in Lebanon.
The Organization supports lawyer Elie MAHFOUD and Mr. Ahmed AL-ASAAD concerning their courageous positions. We are convinced that most of the Lebanese people are to sympathize with this struggle for a free, neutral and democratic Lebanon, to put all weapons only in the hands of the State, and to uphold the rule of law and the Constitution.
I - 27 May 2010. Lawyer Elie MAHFOUD: Palestinian arms ruin Lebanon, and Hezbollah weapons will eliminate Lebanon rest.
The "Movement for Change" President, member of " 14 March forces ", lawyer Eli MAHFOUD appeals Lebanese to warn them of the seriousness of " militia weapons which are still held by the" party of God ", despite the delivery of all other militias’ arms in accordance with the National Accord Agreement."
MAHFOUD said in a statement that "few today speak openly on the truth, that most of the political class are narrowly accounting at the level of egoist interests and gains ".He added: "But the remaining few believe in the Lebanese cause, and in the slogan" the strongest is the one who wants nothing ". They continue to raise the tone whatsoever sacrifices are.
He stressed that "the continuing presence of Hizbullah armed militia will lead to the loss of the Lebanese republic". He added that " these weapons carried under the pretext of resistance against Israel, were the same which raised during the Lebanon occupation by Palestinian militias in 1969, when ABU AMMAR told " the road to Jerusalem passes by Jounieh ". He added : “ The result was that the Palestinian weapons disappeared and Lebanon remained”.
MAHFOUD considered that "when we note the seriousness of this weapon we put a finger on the heart of the Lebanese crisis ", asserting, «the chapters of this crisis will not finish as long as Hezbollah is singing alone outside the squadron the Lebanese legitimacy”.
MAHFOUD looks to the dialogue table as “ fruitless after the domestication of most of their passengers”, asserting, "government will not be able to take any decision not compatible with the interests of the" Party of God ". This party dominates Lebanon governance. That is why Lebanese Republic is now in serious jeopardy.
He calls to raise voices inside all Lebanon in order to fight against propaganda which suggests that all Lebanese agree with Hezbollah’ weapon, pointing out that " we must be able to reject this weapon as soon as possible since it is on the verge of seizing the Republic and its institutions ".
MAHFOUD insisted that " the continuation of holding weapons by a specific clan of Lebanese will conduct to promote other weapons of other parties, and this will lead to a new civil war ".
II - "Lebanese Option Shiite Party" : the elections proved that the current opposition began to grow up within the Shiite community.
Lebanese Option, after its weekly meeting under the chairmanship of Ahmed AL-ASAAD, has told that the results of the municipal elections in many towns and villages in the Bekaa and the South Lebanon announcing many candidates received by acclamation without voting, was a kidnapping of the Democratic Process. It distorts the electoral benefit about the real concepts for people development.
AL-ASAAD stressed that these realities of alliances of the armed militias in place leaves people helpless. They work for their own interests, having monopoly on the Shiite community, and certainly are far from the development programs and services to citizens.
The statement considers that coalition electoral lists which produced a significant number of towns and villages to win by acclamation without voting in the Bekaa and the South, lead inevitably to political domination of one color and one extremist opinion.
He pointed out that despite all, this election proved that the current opposition began to grow and grow up within the Shiite community. Independent candidates have proved without room for doubt their rejection of the enormous pressure exerted by Hezbollah and Amal. They confirm in fact that the Shiite community rejects to be dominated by only one political opinion.
