March 14: Lebanon Cannot be Taken over So Easily, Hizbullah Should Return to the State

The March 14 Secretariat General condemned on Wednesday the "intimidation campaign against the Lebanese that called them to boycott the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and the international investigators."

It said in a statement after its weekly meeting: "Those behind this campaign believe they can force the Lebanese to back down from their principles and surrender to Hizbullah's conditions, which is the side leading this campaign."

"They are wrong in their belief as no one has the power to turn back the hands of time and eliminate the national achievements accomplished by the independence intifada," it added.

"Despite all this, the March 14 forces will not end its call to this team to return to the state, reminding it that Lebanon is not a target it can take over so easily," it stated.

It noted that Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun has become an instrument "in the foreign agenda's plan to eliminate the STL and basis of the Lebanese state."

"It is no secret to the Lebanese that Aoun is using his 'change' motto to reach certain goals, as for 'reform', he should first demonstrate his credibility before implementing it," it said.

The March 14 forces called on the MP to lift bank secrecy off his accounts since the 1980s until today.
