Guardians of the Cedars - National Lebanese Movement
The party of the Guardians of the Cedars-National Lebanese Movement issued the
The questions under consideration at present are old/new questions and the Party feels
the need to recall them briefly:
- The Election Law: It seems that the uproar of both the so-called Opposition
and the so-called Loyalists to the proposed law are relative to purely personal
considerations. The Party, however, believes that a small or a large electoral ward is as
bad one as the other as long as the elections are held under Syrian occupation.
Consequently, before requiring a fair election law, we must require full Independence and
National Sovereignty before anything else. The party firmly believes that there can be
neither genuine Loyalists nor genuine Opposition but only puppets upon
whom the Syrians confer particular roles designed to keep Lebanon in a state of weakness
and anarchy and complete dependence on Syrian troops.
- The question of the implantation of Palestinian refugees: The positive
position regarding this question is the refusal of the implantation on the political and
official levels. But the negative position is linking the refusal of the implantation with
the right of the Palestinian refugees to return to their land . The Party believes that
the refusal of implantation should be linked only with the need of the departure of the
Palestinian from Lebanon. Their right to return to their land is not a Lebanese concern.
- The negotiations: The Lebanese government insists on the unity of the
Lebanese and Syrian tracks and on the support of the terrorism they call Resistance,
insisting that this is an immutable Lebanese position. The Party, on the contrary, insists
that the true immutable Lebanese position should concern the Sovereignty, Independence and
freedom of decision. The unity of the Lebanese and Syrian tracks is not a political
constant but a slogan to hide the relinquishment of the Sovereignty, Independence and
freedom of decision.
