Arabic with English or French subtitles

The Kataeb Party (also known as The Phalange Party) was founded by Sheik Pierre Gemayel in 1936. It quickly emerged as a nationalist youth movement and a champion of the Christian cause in Lebanon. Throughout the 1960s the party was considered one of the largest political organizations within the Lebanese political system. In the 1970s, The Kataeb Party evolved into a private militia under the leadership of Bashir Gemayel, the founderís son. Bashir Gemayel was elected President of the Republic in 1982, following Israel's invasion of Lebanon, but was assassinated eight days before he was to assume power.
