Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea Tuesday praised the National Charter unveiled by The Maronite Church last week, saying it flew in the face of Hezbollah's practices and ideology, and urged Lebanese political figures to fully implement the document.In a televised news conference from his residence in Maarab, Geagea highlighted what he said were the charter's core ideas for producing a capable and productive Lebanese state. Geagea also said recent comments by Hezbollah deputy chief Naim Qassem tying the existence of Lebanon to the resistance group was the party's indirect response to the National Charter.Geagea also accused Hezbollah and its allies in the March 8 coalition of paralyzing the state on several occasions, including in 2006 when the party's ministers withdrew from the Cabinet of former Prime Minister Fouad Siniora.Geagea along with his allies in the March 14 group blame Hezbollah for the recent string of car bombings in Lebanon that have been claimed by radical groups fighting in Syria.
