About the Lebanese Forces
The "Lebanese Forces" was created as a result of excruciating circumstances in Lebanon in late seventies when the Lebanese Christian community felt the need to defend itself against impending internal and external dangers and threats. These dangers were amplified by the fact that the government with its entire infrastructure proved to be impotent in containing the Palestinian military presence in Lebanon, which threatened Lebanoní sovereignty and independence. The resistance forces consisted of several separate factions: the Phalangists, The National Liberal Party, Al-Tanzeem Party and the Guardians of The Cedars, who took a multi-lateral decision on August 1976 to consolidate the war efforts and to establish a unified resistance military council under the command of the late Lebanese president "Bashir Gemayel".

Bashir Gemayel founded the "Lebanese Forces". He created it, organized the cadres and he molded it with his own patriotic spirit, hopes and aspirations. He transformed it to play a dual role in the Christian community, a defensive military machine (30,000 fighters) and a sophisticated infrastructure that served the Christian community politically, economically, socially and by providing it with both radio and TV stations. He continued to serve in that capacity until he was elected president of Lebanon in 1982, and consequently his assassination by the enemies of Lebanon on September 14, 1982.

After the assassination, the "Lebanese Forces" went into a state of shock and paralysis that lasted few years until January 15, 1986 when Dr. "Samir Geagea" assumed its leadership. On that day the winds of change started blowing and the march of rebuilding, reform and modernization started moving forward. The "Lebanese Forces" became the institution holding a historical political proposition for the Lebanese Christian community aiming at:

- Ensuring a sovereign, free, and secure Lebanon for all its citizens equally.

- Establishing a system of government whereas the superstructure (the government) is congruent with the infrastructure (the society) resulting in a fair, true and balanced political participation.

- Promoting a political system built on three basic principles: diversity, freedom to foster development and democracy representative of the diversity that exists in the Lebanese Society.

- Halting support to any ideology or movement that works directly or indirectly to joining Lebanon to another country.

- Adopting a neutral foreign policy to provide for internal security and to allow for freedom to build foreign international relations.

The "Lebanese Forces" peaked in its organization and modernization. After the signing of the "TAEF Accord" on October 24, 1989 with international and regional blessings, it transformed its military resistance into a political resistance. Hence, the "Lebanese Forces Party", with its 30,000 members not counting their families, was formed on September 10, 1992 based on three undisputed principles:

1] Safeguarding Lebanonís independence, sovereignty and distinct identity within its
Internationally recognized borders.

2] Founding the Lebanese Government on the basic principles of human rights.

3] Establishing a democratic system whereas freedom and Human Rights of every citizen are protected and guaranteed.

Post "Taef Accord", and after dismantling its military machine and surrendering its weapons, the Lebanese Forces Party attempted to control the dangerous digression in the implementation of the Taef Accord due to the Syrian regime, single-handedly taking control of the "Lebanese File". This scenario manifested on the Political arena as a result of two factors: the international/regional powers that accommodated the Syrian regime and the refusal of the Lebanese Muslims to respect and abide by the "Taef Accord".

The "Lebanese Forces Party" refused the status quo and used every democratic means to realize its political ambition on one hand and to prevent Syria from annexing Lebanon, on the other hand. As a result, the ruling regime in Lebanon launched a persecution and terror campaign against the "Lebanese Forces Party" starting with the government decision to disband it on March 24, 1994 and to falsely accuse and imprison its leader "Dr. Samir Geagea" on April 21 of the same year. The waves of arrests began soon after and continued to target Lebanese Forces officials and hundreds of its members to date. The government confiscated all assets and equipment belonging to the Lebanese Forces Party and took over all of its social, educational and media institutions.

The direct result of this persecution and terror campaign was the forced emigration of a large number of "Lebanese Forces Party" members to Europe, United States and Australia where representative political offices have been established for years.

In spite of all the pressures exerted upon it and the false imprisonment of its leader, the "Lebanese Forces Party" is still the most organized party on the Lebanese political arena. This is proven by the official results in the last municipal elections of 1998 (300 "Lebanese Forces Party" officials elected). Furthermore, the "Lebanese Forces Party" enjoys a strong presence and a wide area of influence on the educational level within student organizations in universities and schools and also within many labor unions representing doctors, lawyers and engineers to mention a few. Still, the "Lebanese Forces Party" cannot operate freely within Lebanon as other political parties who are Syrian sympathizers.
