A Lebanese Christian leader warned Saturday that Hezbollah would soon turn Lebanon into another version of the Gaza Strip if indeed it assumes political power in the country, trampling human rights and financial stability like Hamas.
“The situation will be similar to that in Gaza, and we all know what the positions of the world and the Arabs will be, aside from Syria, regarding this government,” said Samir Geagea, the leader of the Lebanese Forces, a Christian militia. “I ask those who rejoice in a government without Hariri, what of our financial situation? Who will invest a single lira in us? Does anyone think there will be investors in our economy?”
“Our students will have no freedom, they will not be able to set foot outside the universities. We all know what kind of liberties these governments allow,” he added.
Political turmoil hit Lebanon last week, when 11 Hezbollah ministers resigned from Hariri’s government in a successful attempt at toppling it. The ministers were protesting the investigation against the group by the UN Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which is widely expected to indict Hezbollah members for the the 2005 assassination of Sunni Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri.

Once again, we see an Arab “Christian” leader who is firmly attached to this world and without any thought in his mind for the Kingdom of God. This leader of a “Christian” faction in Lebanon is more concerned with money and political freedoms than with the spiritual condition of his community and his country.
He is not wrong to worry about the things he mentions, but the fact that they are his primary concern is a warning to Christians everywhere to avoid spiritual blindness and, as the saying goes, “keep the Main Thing the main thing.”
Yeshua Ha’Mashiac (Jesus Christ) warns us in Matthew 6:24;
No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other You cannot serve God and wealth.
What this “Christian” leader should be warning about is that Hezbollah is a demonic force for wickedness and evil and that if it manages to take over his country it will become an outpost for the plans and purposes of Lucifer, right on the border with Israel, which is, as the Lord said in Zechariah 2:8;
After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.
No doubt, if Hezbollah turns out to be good for business, Samir Gaegea will change his mind and happily embrace it.
We all need to keep this man in mind, and remember him the next time we get upset about something we see on the news. What we get upset about is a good indication of how close our hearts’ are to the Heart of God.
