In Lebanon, affairs easily get mixed up and all logic is lost to the point where facts become mere opinion. I recently read that Nabil Qaouk, deputy chief of the executive council of Hezbollah, called for “strengthening national unity particularly during this phase of hatred (and) because the first party which is responsible for extending the (presidential) vacuum is actually the March 14 alliance.” He added: “Intents and true stances have (now) been revealed. These parties (i.e. March 14’s) are not ready to nominate the president... They cause domestic political crises on purpose in order to exhaust and obstruct the government’s path. Whose interest is it in to drain Lebanon’s unity and power when it’s engaged in the battle of defending its borders and people against takfirist invasions?”
Who is to blame for Lebanon’s quagmire?
