Samir Geagea


  • Lebanon is our country, and in it we are staying (as a minority christians).
  • You have come out of the big prison which you had been put in and you have taken me out with the same act from the small prison which I had been put in.
    • Upon being released from Yarze prison, as quoted in an Associate Press report "Ex-Christian Warlord Released in Lebanon" by Zeina Karam (26 July 2005)
    • Variant translation: Now that you (Lebanese people) have come out of the great prison to which you were confined, you have released me from the small prison in which I was put.
