Nasrallah told off

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea, in a swift reaction on Friday, told Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah "you have no right to take us against our will to where we don't want to go" and challenged him to accept a TV debate to allow "the lebanese, the Arabs and the whole world judge" us.
Geagea was reacting to Nasrallah's insistence that he has the right to set the time and place of war by proclaiming it our "national right."

Nasrallah, in an address to a rally commemorating Hizbullah's Imad Mughniyeh a few hours earlier, had attacked the international tribunal saying its prosecutor is in Meerab, in reference to Geagea's residence northeast of Beirut.

Geagea responded by addressing Nasrallah: "The prosecutor of the international tribunal remains better than your Addoum," in reference to ex-prosecutor general Adnan Addoum who held the post prior to withdrawal of Syria's Army from Lebanon in April 2005.

Addresing Nasrallah, Geagea said: "remember the downfall of the whole Soviet Union and look at the developments in Palestine, so far. We are against this logic and you have no right, Sayyed, to take us against our will to where we don't want to go."
