Geometry Problem 1376: Isosceles Triangle, Interior Cevian, Excircles, Tangency Points, Parallel Lines.

Proposition

In the figure below, ABC is an isosceles triangle (AB = BC) and D is a point on AC. The excircle E of the triangle ABD corresponding to AD is tangent to BD extended at F. The excircle G of the triangle DBC corresponding to BC is tangent to AC extended at H. Prove that BG and FH are parallel.

BD is called an interior cevian of triangle ABC.
