BEIRUT: Hezbollah MP Mohammad Raad accused the March 14 coalition Sunday of actively leading Lebanon towards conflict.

“It seems they have taken a provocative approach which poses a threat to the country,” Raad said, in a clear reference to March 14.

“They are the ones taking the country into danger, while we carry an extinguisher to put out the fire they are igniting it in every region and in every place,” he added.

His remarks came during a memorial service to mark one week after the death of a Hezbollah fighter.

Hezbollah fighters are battling alongside Syrian regime forces in their war against rebels.

Raad also accused the parties opposing Hezbollah of launching a campaign to cripple government institutions.

“Who mobilized [supporters] on the street to cripple [public] institutions, disrupt the role of the Army and destroy the prestige of the judiciary?” he asked.

Raad accused March 14 of misusing government power for other purposes.

“These people do not understand the meaning of the state unless the power is in their hands,” Raad said. “They do not want a state.”

“Even the institutions that existed when they were in power were transformed into farms for their followers, because they do not know the logic of the state.”

Raad urged March 14 to open their arms to their rivals, March 8, for the sake of building a state.
