"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Geagea Rejects Extension, Blames Electoral Law Crisis on 'Hizbullah Obstinacy'- Naharnet

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea reiterated Tuesday his party's rejection of an extension of parliament's term without an agreement on a new electoral law, blaming the crisis on what he called “Hizbullah's obstinacy.”
“'Full proportional representation or extension without an agreement on a law' is an equation that we cannot accept and we will not bow to the dictates of the group that is trying to impose it on us,” Geagea said in an interview with the al-Markazia news agency.
He confirmed that the LF and its Christian ally the Free Patriotic Movement will “boycott” Thursday's legislative session which has extension on its agenda.
“All electoral efforts have been blocked by Hizbullah's obstinacy,” Geagea added, accusing Hizbullah of “putting the country in the face of a major dilemma.”
