IT looks like the Lebanese are destined to come out of the tunnel which was dug for them by ‘Hezbollah’ but fall into another ditch because this ‘terrorist’ party is determined to destroy the country’s institutions.
Apparently, this supreme soldier who is hoping to become the Murshid of the Lebanese Republic wants to transform the country into a backyard for the regime of Mullahs where they can dump their chaotic and terrorist waste.
However, after the crisis was ended, Hezbollah brought the country to its knees and involved Beirut into the Internet puzzle alleging the Israelis had stripped the country naked with its ability to eavesdrop and spy at a time when the most important issue at heart was the overhauling of constitutional institutions which were forcefully emptied of their content by prioritizing senseless issues.
However, after the Mustaqbal bloc punched a hole in the wall by nominating Suleiman Franjieh, a supporter of the ‘Azar 8’ bloc, Hezbollah made a turnaround and threw its support behind Michel Oun, who was nominated by the head of the ‘Lebanese Forces’ Samir Geagea to allow its MPs to complete this constitutional operation in the Parliament house.
But, now it has become crystal clear that Hezbollah has added a tinge of controversy to this presidential elections so that it can toy with the election issue as it pleases.
Is it not enough for the Lebanese people, even those so- called, ‘incubators of resistance’ by Nasrallah to realize that this ‘suspension’ and dismemberment of the country is the true goal of Hezbollah which now controls all the utilities of the country starting from the land border with Syria to the airport?
Is it not enough to realize that Hezbollah has put the Lebanese Constitution on the backburner in the belief a day will dawn when Nasrallah can call this nation a Shi’ite bastion during the ‘roundtable conference’ which has called for?
What prevents his MPs from heading to the Parliament after his follower Nabih Berri asked him to elect the president from among his nominees?
No country in the world, except for Somalia, has remained without a president for two years. If the concept of the country decayed in Somalia under the very noses of the international community, Lebanon also suffered the same fate where the government cannot even make a simple decision to clean its backyard without satisfying all adversaries.
All of us know that the Lebanese can elect their president with the precision of a Swiss watch, and they have done so even during hard times when their country was invaded by the Israelis in 1982 to keep away the ghost of political emptiness.
Yet, the chair of the Lebanese president over a period of ten years has remained vacant on two occasions because of the stubbornness of Hezbollah and because the destiny of the country is in the hands of the Iranian administration.
During his recent speech on one of the Lebanese TV channels, Hassan Nasrallah slaughtered the Lebanese harmony by pulling the rug from under the feet of the Lebanese by defining Lebanon’s relations with its Arab neighbors.
He has planted landmines in the path of the Lebanese which cannot be removed without getting ride of Hezbollah from the political facade not through armed confrontation — which nobody in Lebanon wants — but through civil disobedience movement, from within what Nasrallah calls ‘the incubator of resistance’.
The country has paid a heavy price for the adventures of this terrorist party by controlling Lebanon on behalf of the Persian state, demolishing the country’s institutions and paving the way for its failure. Hezbollah in fact is the party which has brought failure for Lebanon.
