On Wednesday 28/12/2016 the Lebanese government, under the leadership of Sa’ad Al-Hariri, attained the confidence of the parliament, in the second sitting that the parliament has designated to discuss the ministerial statement, by a majority of 87 votes from an original number of 92, where 4 parliamentarians voted against giving the vote of confidence and one abstained. (Al-Arabiya.net 28/12/2016)
This consolidates the reach of the American hand within Lebanon and that was after the ally of the party of the Iranian republic, Michel Aoun secured the presidency on 31/10/2016. Then confidence was granted to this government under the guardianship of the regional followers of America, Saudi and Iran.
The one who scrutinizes the formation of this government notices that the American men in Lebanon are found in the sensitive ministries like the defense, foreign, internal, justice and finance ministries. As for the ministries of crumbs then they were left to internal wrangling, where the heads of traditional militias who have attired themselves in political clothing, struggle with each other over them, to plunder what remains in respect to them for electioneering purposes. It reached the point to where one of them was not shy or ashamed to say: “The cabinet of this ministry is empty and this is an unacceptable matter”. This statement is an expression of the true reality of the viewpoint of those who claim to practice politics in this land whilst they are militia leaders and their political practice is militia based practices seeking benefit in which the issues, concerns of the people and the caretaking of their affairs doesn’t register!
The role of Lebanon in the region is defined by America alone and there is no state that competes with it for influence carrying any weight. The true reality of the American viewpoint in respect to Lebanon has stood out distinctly over the last five years following the Arab revolutions and particularly the Syrian one. This viewpoint has become prominent in two issues:
Firstly: Lebanon is a background military base for the party of Iran which has accepted to be a colonialist tool that America uses through its subservient follower Iran wherever it wishes to in the region, from Yemen to Iraq and its prominent bloody role in Syria, and particularly after what happened in terms of the ‘handover’ of Halab (Aleppo). That is so that the party of Iran can participate actively without any shame from Allah, His Messenger and the Muslim masses, in its policies of murder, insult and the forced removal of the people of the city of Halab and its revolutionaries, in an unhidden alliance with the enemy of Islam and the Muslims, Russia, and behind a thin curtain but not invisible with the American leadership, whilst turning a blind eye to the Jewish entity that is enjoying a calm front via the protection of the “axis of resistance”!!!
Secondly: Separating the Muslims of Lebanon from their surroundings and preventing them from supporting their brothers in Ash-Shaam. This separation which the Lebanese regime takes care of through pre-prepared concocted charges and accusations of terrorism amongst others and arbitrary arrests through what they call “Documents of Communication” upon the basis of which the security departments are still arresting young Muslim men.
These two American viewpoints have made the ministerial statement free of any indication pointing to the movements of the party of Iran in respect to supporting the fascist regime in Syria or of taking any stance in regards to the arbitrary policies against the supporters of the Syrian revolution in Lebanon. All of which points to the continuation upon this policy blindly subservient to America and its agents in Lebanon and the region.
O People of Lebanon … Lebanon in its current form is like an entity tied to colonialist states; it has no sovereignty, no independence and no state according to its true meaning. Rather it is a front of a rule that implements external commands and the authority of the embassies, indeed just one, the American embassy and the regional states subservient to it. It is in a form that makes it necessary upon you, O people of Lebanon, to be aware of the reality of this government which was not put together except to work in accordance to the American agenda that fits with the stage that its colonialist policy has reached to within the region… So, do not accept for this to be recorded in the pages of your present and history. That is because colonialism and its tools are in the process of demise by Allah’s permission. As for what is firm and remaining, then it is your connection to the lands of Ash-Shaam and the Islamic world which will unify sooner rather than later by Allah’s permission within a single organizational structure, the second rightly guided Khilafah upon the methodology of the Prophethood …
O Muslims in Lebanon … You are required (both Sunni and Shi’ah) to declare that you are free of those who rushed eagerly to pill the blood of your brothers and do not pay attention to their calls to division amongst you. That is because the likes of the party of Iran thrive upon division opposite to what they claim when they say that they support the unity of the Muslims. The party of Iran, by entering Syria, has imposed a repugnant sectarianism upon its followers under the cover of claimed affiliation to the Ahl ul-Bait (people of the household) of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. That is whilst the Ahl ul-Bait, who are the Ahl ul-Bait in respect to all Muslims, are free of it and its actions. Verily, every party, movement and group is required today to break off any direct or indirect connection or link to those who do not observe any pact of kinship or covenant of protection in respect to the Muslims of Syria…
Due to the magnitude of this matter, we remind you by the Qawl of Allah Ta’Aalaa:
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَتَّخِذُ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَندَاداً يُحِبُّونَهُمْ كَحُبِّ اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ أَشَدُّ حُبّاً لِّلَّهِ وَلَوْ يَرَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ إِذْ يَرَوْنَ الْعَذَابَ أَنَّ الْقُوَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعاً وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعَذَابِ إِذْ تَبَرَّأَ الَّذِينَ اتُّبِعُواْ مِنَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ وَرَأَوُاْ الْعَذَابَ وَتَقَطَّعَتْ بِهِمُ الأَسْبَابُ وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ لَوْ أَنَّ لَنَا كَرَّةً فَنَتَبَرَّأَ مِنْهُمْ كَمَا تَبَرَّؤُواْ مِنَّا كَذَلِكَ يُرِيهِمُ اللَّهُ أَعْمَالَهُمْ حَسَرَاتٍ عَلَيْهِمْ وَمَا هُم بِخَارِجِينَ مِنَ النَّارِ
“And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah. But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah. And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment. [And they should consider that] when those who have been followed disassociate themselves from those who followed [them], and they [all] see the punishment, and cut off from them are the ties [of relationship], Those who followed will say, “If only we had another turn [at worldly life] so we could disassociate ourselves from them as they have disassociated themselves from us.” Thus will Allah show them their deeds as regrets upon them. And they are never to emerge from the Fire”
So, beware, beware O Muslims from the assembly on a tremendous Day …
إِنَّ هَذِهِ تَذْكِرَةٌ فَمَن شَاء اتَّخَذَ إِلَى رَبِّهِ سَبِيلاً
“Verily, this is a reminder, so whoever wills may take a path to his Lord”
