The Nusra Front warned Lebanon's Christians Sunday that the Free Patriotic Movement leader, MP Michel Aoun, was leading the sect into war with Sunnis with the aim of becoming president.Published on the Twitter account of Nusra's Qalamoun branch, the statement said Aoun's only aspiration was to reach presidency, "even if for one hour only".The statement said Aoun's support of Hezbollah was blocking the release of the Christians among the Lebanese security troops that Nusra abducted during the clashes in Arsal with the Lebanese Army earlier this month.In response, MP Ibrahim Kanaan, a member of the FPM, announced that he would represent the young men in court if the prosecutor took action.
