Christian leaders of the majority March 14 coalition on Sunday pleaded with President Michel Suleiman to urge the Arab League and the U.N. Security Council to protect Lebanon.

"Lebanon is in danger and you have a tremendous responsibility before God, the nation and history," March 14 Christian leaders said in an open letter to Suleiman following a lengthy meeting at the National Liberal Party headquarters.
"Hizbullah has started a coup against the State … and has toppled the Government of national unity and this coup targets Lebanon's freedom," they said.

"We are no longer scared of militia weapons… 40,000 rockets do not defeat the willpower of a people that decided to live with dignity.

March 14 warned it will "not allow a militia to take over control of the State."

"We will not accept to subjugate the Lebanese people to a dictatorship similar to that experienced by the Iranian people," the statement stressed.

Meanwhile, The Council of Muftis in Lebanon on Sunday warned the Opposition not to ignore the Sunni's opnion ahead of binding parliamentary consultations designed to choose a new prime minister.

"We warn of the consequences of slipping into the dangers of resorting to a government imposed through harassment or under pressure," said a statement issued at the end of an extraordinary meeting under Grand Mufti Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Qabbani.

The statement reminded the Lebanese that "Saad Hariri's government was formed as a result of his winning the majority in the parliamentary elections in his capacity as leader of the parliamentary majority … and this reality is protected by the Lebanese Constitution and the national traditions prevailing within the Lebanese parliamentary system since independence. "

It pointed out that the Hariri government was established following the Doha Accord "under which the political forces involved vowed not to disrupt the work of the government and not to resign from it."

"What happened, however, was worse and more dangerous and led to a breach of the agreements, where the basis for relations between the Lebanese sects within the system was violated," the statement added.

The muftis described the collapse of the Hariri Cabinet as an "attempt to bypass or annul" the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

They stressed commitment to peaceful coexistence and national unity.

After the meeting, the muftis headed to Center House to brief Hariri on the outcome of their talks.
