What will the situation of the Lebanese state be if Hezbollah manages to cobble a majority in parliamentary elections?
On May 12, US President Donald Trump will announce his new strategy on Iran by deciding on the flawed Iranian nuclear deal.
In brief, Trump has repeatedly warned about “amending” the agreement or scrapping it altogether.
The amendment addresses two major threats which former President Barack Obama neglected, which are related to Iran’s ballistic missiles’ capabilities and the prevention of Iran’s bad behavior in the region, i.e. in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen and even Morocco — where Iran’s “blessings” have reached through its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah!
There is in fact a new version of the US draft law on combating the financing of Hezbollah. The US Congress passed this draft law last year but the Senate hasn’t voted on it yet and it hasn’t reached the American president’s office.
Combating Hezbollah’s financial activity is part of the US legal and oversight framework, as is the case with other countries, and not just with Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates as the “resistance” mouthpieces try to make everyone think.
Lebanon’s politicians may have succeeded in “postponing” the Hezbollah problem but this does not mean they have ended it.Mashari Althaydi
