Christian leader Samir Geagea warns Shi’ite party will ruin economy, repress personal rights; Druse leader Jumblatt throws weight behind Hizbullah and Syria.

If Hizbullah dominates the next Lebanese government, Lebanon will “turn into Gaza,” Samir Geagea, leader of the Christian Lebanese Forces, warned at a press conference in Beirut on Saturday.

Geagea also warned that in such a scenario, Lebanon’s economy would be devastated and freedoms would be repressed.

The Christian leader was referring to Hamas’s takeover of Gaza in 2007 and the devastation of its economy that followed. Both Hamas and Hizbullah are funded by Iran.

”Did any one wonder what will happen to the Lebanese pound if the other side assumes power in Lebanon?” Geagea asked.

On Friday, Druse leader Walid Jumblatt, a potential kingmaker in Lebanese politics threw his support on Friday behind Hizbullah, a major boost to the Shi’ite terrorist group that brought down the country’s Westernbacked government last week.

Jumblatt refused to say exactly how many lawmakers are with him, but his support is key ahead of parliamentary talks on Monday to pick a new prime minister.

Geagea said during his press conference Saturday that Jumblatt would not support Hizbullah if “the Democratic Gathering [Jumblatt’s party] had a choice.”
