“Sawt Beirut International” news bulletin for Sunday, October 24, 2021

In today’s news bulletin:

  • Hezbollah follows the tactic of the International Court to disrupt the port’s investigations
  • The dispute over amending the elections raises the intensity of the debate between Amal and the Free Patriotic Movement
  • Ain al-Rummaneh raid…another  black history added to Hezbollah

Lebanon is now the country of complete chaos. Every sector is suffering from some kind of chaos. Chaos in politics, as well as in economy, government file, the judicial, security and military affairs. The main reason for this complete chaos is Hezbollah.

Hebzollah overturned concepts, struck public order, violated laws, and made the irregular a rule. That’s how the concepts were mixed, without knowing the right from wrong.

For example: Whoever listens to what the Deputy Secretary-General of Hezbollah, Naim Qassem, said, is fully aware of what we are saying. Qassem considered the judicial investigator, Tariq Al-Bitar, responsible in one way or another of Al-Tayouneh events, stressing that Al-Bitar brought problems and calamities and that there is no hope that he will achieve justice. Does Qassem believe the truth of what he is saying? Is he really convinced that it was Al-Bitar who brought the problems to Lebanon, not his party? If Hezbollah had accepted the on-going investigation, would the demonstration have taken place on Thursday? Wasn’t it not being for the decision of the Amal Movement and Hezbollah to deliberately raid Ain al-Remmaneh, which erupted the clashes?

What Naim Qassem did not say was said by the head of the Loyalty to the Resistance Bloc, MP Muhammad Raad, who considered that there are many Lebanese who turn the party’s enemies against him. If this is true, isn’t the party supposed to conduct a critical reading of its performance in order to know why it lost the people’s support around it? In the year 2000, for example, most of the Lebanese were with Hezbollah as a resistance. Today, most of the Lebanese are against it after it turned to a militia, and after it directed its weapons inward more than once, and after it practiced disrupting institutions whenever its interests imposed on him to do so. Hezbollah is in trouble, and with its poor performance, Lebanon is in trouble. Will it review its performance before the dilemmas turn into a fateful problem that threatens existence, entity and the future?
