The 5 preposterous things in Lebanese politics today



1: Al-Akhbar Newspaper keeping their irritating nagging on the ‘Marja’youn Barracks Incident’ where a police general surrendered to the Israeli forces and evacuated the place for them after offering them tea. The police force had only primitive rifles.

2: General Michel Aoun, head of Lebanese Patriotic Movement, lecturing on state building while distributing money, probably from Hezbollah, to Christians affected by the last war.

3: The fear and shame to name Hezbollah as a militia, whereas in its actions and organisation, Hezbollah embodies a militia that operates beyond state control.

4: Aoun’s Lebanese Patriotic Movement claiming to be a secular movement but at time and time again reminding the Lebanese that the movement got 70% of Christian votes in the last election thus representing Maronites.

5: Leftist, seculars and communists rallying after Hezbollah, a religious movement to the bone that is headed by a cleric and is built on a religious belief system.
