Sawt Beirut International’s News Bulletin – Sep. 19, 2021

A brief of tonight’s news bulletin:

  • The ministerial statement was free of contentious clauses
  • An Israeli violation into the southern seas has been registered, and Lebanon is considering referring the matter to the United Nations.
  • The medical sector is in a catastrophic condition… and medical supplies are in short supply.

Greetings, Lebanese! You are cordially invited to witness a drama that will make you laugh and cry at the same time. The Palace Theatre is at UNESCO, on Monday. SAVE THE DATE! Gaining trust on the basis of the ministerial statement is the main headline. The heroes are the current government’s ministers and the majority of the country’s deputies, as well as the director, the professional Nabih Berri!! Our days will be filled with repetitious, pointless conversation thanks to tragedy-comedy. The administration will obtain a high level of trust, and everything that will be stated in Parliament will be to evoke compassion from the public, nothing more, nothing less… Especially considering the legislative elections are eight months away.

With the exception of the Lebanese Forces bloc, all political parties are represented in the cabinet. As a result, everything that will happen tomorrow at Parliament is nothing but a folklore. There are two truths that determine the political reality, in addition to the governmental-parliamentary deception. The first is that Iran purposefully conveyed a strong message to the prime minister right away. The entry of Iranian tankers was done out independently of the Lebanese government, according to Najib Mikati. Nevertheless, the Iranian Foreign Ministry responded today, confirming that gasoline was delivered to Lebanon at the request of the Lebanese government.

Mikati had no doubt that the statement written in Persian was comprehended and that its implications were acknowledged. The second reality that confronts Lebanese citizens is the ongoing legal investigation into the Port Blast. To hinder the inquiry, the complicit and criminal authority would go to any extent. And the “hero” is, as usual, the Parliament, which does not want anyone to infringe on its immunity.

Have you ever witnessed anything more criminal than an authority defending itself and hiding behind weak immunities in order to avoid exposing those who murdered a whole capital?!
