Departure, resignation and apology in Lebanon

The question that must be asked: What prevents the president-designate’s apology from coinciding with the resignation of President Michel Aoun from the presidency, providing that this step is followed by the resignation of Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and with him all MPs?

With that departure, that resignation, and this apology, Lebanon will go towards forming a new government on democratic foundations. So that the Lebanese people regain their right to take the initiative. Otherwise, the situation will turn into a dramatic scene and towards an unprecedented dangerous explosion.

Although this equation is illogical in the eyes of the corrupt authority and its supporters, it is the most realistic equation. The salvation of the country lies in the process of starting to get rid of this rotten political class. Even the international community has become aware of the danger of dealing with Lebanon through this authority that destroyed everything, especially since the work carried out by the pillars of this authority is based on the concept of sabotaging everything quickly. After they ruined the economy and politics in Lebanon, they are sabotaging minds through rumors they spread here and there, and through problems they invent here and there, and through a crooked logic in resolving the issue and focusing on their interests only.

To return to the fore again in the case of the Beirut port bombing through the competent judge’s claim against the current caretaker prime minister and former ministers, the prosecution must affect the President of the Republic personally, as he is also concerned.   The port is not a public facility that was deliberately destroyed, but it is the story of a catastrophe that befell Lebanon and the residents of Beirut, leaving traces of destruction that this authority cannot handle, in addition to the aggravation of the crisis that followed the explosion and is still continuing.

With the widening of the accused’s circle to include parliamentary and government figures, some, according to the authority’s point of view, will see this as biasing one party at the expense of another, and thus the country will enter into a new contest.

And whoever sees that solutions in Lebanon today will be through the gateway to forming a government, he is nothing but delusional.

Even if the government was formed in these circumstances, its existence would not be of any use under the rule of Aoun, allied with Hezbollah and affiliated with Iran. In the end, the government’s work will be emptied of its content and all the decisions it takes will be suspended. In conclusion, the problem in Lebanon is not the absence of a government only, but rather the absence of any real authority that wants to change and save the country, and it is clear that there is a gang that rules on the principle of interests, quotas, and obtaining gains.

It is worth noting that the bankruptcy that strikes Lebanon is not only an economic bankruptcy, but rather a political one.
