Yes, a country that breathes mullahi fatwas and shouts death to al shaytan al akbar day in and day out, in immense gratitude to those distant brothers feeding it. For HA to come this far in establishing own mini state, you just confirmed the party's gone fishing in own waters since long. One can argue if it was because of the very early insight about the deeply institutionalized corruption that HA decided to hatch their longterm plan of establishing own institutions and businesses - and we're talking as early as 1982, 7 years into the civil war and while the lib lira still ruled 3:1 against the dollar. Or if it was their need for a corruption ma7daleh, rolled in in 1990 in the form of HA's ally, Rafiq el Harameh, to boost the same plan. How else can one build one's own statelett inside the state if no corrupted left and right hands are there to assist with the project, knowingly or 3an jahl?

And here we are today, rushing towards the every man for himself approach it seems. I say HA and their folks should grab and use the most of the mullahs money for as long as it lasts. The mullahs are here today, also their money, but who guarantees they, or their money, are still here tomorrow, even if tomorrow is counted in 10-20 years. I understand that living the "now" is all what most of us do on individual level, but think about how fast the now becomes a tomorrow and a yesterday. Plus, the higher the rise, the harder the fall, they say. ;)
Hizbullah was created for two reasons:
1) spread khomeinism (Iran's Islamic Revolution, remember shiite marja3iyyi used to be Iraq)
2) defend Iran and Islamic Regime

Iran used the chaos in Lebanon to create them. Just like they used the chaos in Iraq and Syria to create Iran-affiliated shiite groups. If you think these groups are hell-bent on rebuilding Iraq or Syria, you're naive. They're worse than Saddam and Bashar, if you can wrap your head around that.

They aided and abetted the corrupt state, and their mini-state could not be possible without them raping the integrity of the Lebanese state and taking over the airport and ports.

In other words, they're a cancer and the death of Lebanon.

For someone watching Riad Salameh talk for the first time without knowing who the guy is you might think you’re with the company of a retard you want to make sure you’re holding his hand crossing the street…But when you realize he’s the rocket scientist financial engineer who put Bernie Madoff and Mike Pompeo to shame when it comes to conning their own people with Ponzi schemes and lies, if you happened to be a Lebanese Maronite you can’t help it but get in touch with your inner suppressed superiority that you always knew it was there but it took someone like Riad Salameh to certify it for you and hold your head high above the Jew and the rest of the Christians and Muslims around you.

Rai is right! Riad Salameh is a rare precious treasure and an endangered species we should protect and draw red lines around him.

Can't wait for Sunday mass to hear Rai drawing red lines for Jean Kahwaji...

This is a classic example to our sectarian mentalities that corruption has no sect.
Let's stop pretending we have higher moral values...

Lebanon ex-army boss, intelligence heads charged with corruption​

Eight former top security officers accused of ‘illicit enrichment’ among other charges, judicial sources say.

Beirut, Lebanon – A Lebanese judge has filed corruption charges against eight former high-ranking security officers, including an ex-army chief and the former top brass of army intelligence, two judicial sources familiar with the matter said.

The officers were formally accused of “committing the crime of illicit enrichment and exploiting their official positions to accrue vast fortunes and sums, by using their influence and accepting bribes”, one of the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media, told Al Jazeera on Wednesday.
They were also accused of “bringing officers into the Lebanese army in exchange for large sums of money and providing services to influential people in return for personal benefits”, the source said.

Those charged include former armed forces Commander General Jean Kahwaji, who held his post from 2008 till 2017, and ex-intelligence chiefs Edmond Fadl and Camille Daher, who were in office from 2008 till 2016 and 2016 till 2017, respectively.

High-level charges against a former army commander and intelligence heads are unprecedented in Lebanon, where corruption is notoriously prevalent but accountability is elusive.

The five others charged are the former head of Kahwaji’s office, Mohammad Jaafar al-Husseini, the former head of army intelligence in Beirut, George Khamis, the former head of army Intelligence in North Lebanon, Amer al-Hosn, retired Brigadier General Abdel-Rahman Shhaytli and a former officer in Lebanon’s General Security agency, Ahmad al-Jamal.
A Lebanese army spokesperson declined to comment. A General Security spokesperson said they had no information to provide. Al Jazeera was unable to reach the eight defendants.

Tried in civilian courts​

The charges are based on preliminary investigations by Lebanon’s public prosecution office, which decided it had enough evidence to file public charges, the second judicial source told Al Jazeera.

The public prosecution relied among other things on information provided by politicians, written and visual media reports and other information on “large fortunes the defendants made during their time in office”.

The first judicial source said the judges’ suspicions were aroused by the “large number of properties and cars” owned by some of these individuals, in addition to the “large bank balances” they are reported to have – none of which could have been accrued with their state salaries or benefits alone, nor explained by family wealth.

Beirut Judge Ziad Abu Haidar filed the charges and transferred the case to Beirut Investigative Judge Charbel Abu Samra, who is tasked with setting a date for interrogating the former officers.

Under Lebanon’s Illicit Enrichment Law, the former security officers would be investigated and tried in civilian courts, rather than the Military Tribunal that is the usual avenue for cases involving security forces, the second source said.

The case against seven former top army officers is a blow to the image of the Lebanese army, which is seen locally as one of the few state institutions that are not pervaded by fraud.

The army is largely funded by the United States and other Western nations, and Kahwaji himself received training in the US, the United Kingdom, Italy and Sweden.

The charges also raise the issue of malpractice in the country’s security institutions at a time when many are calling for security chiefs and other top officials to be held accountable for an explosion at Beirut’s port in August that killed 200, wounded more than 6,500 and wrecked large parts of the capital.

Judicial Investigator Fadi Sawan, the lead investigator in that case, has not filed charges against security chiefs despite them being aware of the presence of highly explosive material at the port for many years but failed to remove it.

Sawan has arrested 25 and charged 33 low- and medium-level administrative and security officials – many simply for their knowledge of the material’s presence.

The army is directly concerned with the disposal of explosive material.


Kahwaji was the armed forces commander from the time the material entered the port in late 2013 till he was replaced in 2017, but he has not been questioned by Sawan.

The first judicial source said Sawan had previously attempted to bring Kahwaji in for questioning, but the former army chief was travelling at the time.

There are dire consequences when a Central Government with corrupt politicians takes foreign bribes to settle refugees on its Citizen’s properties, fails to protect its Citizens from foreign invasions and leaving them on their own with outside help to liberate their land while part of the National Army turns into a militia to protect the invader against the local Citizens and, after liberating their own land with the blood of their children, their government supports the same enemy bombarding its Citizens and asking that enemy not to stop when the enemy was ready to stop.
Something is badly wrong with this picture I say…

We all screwed it, screwed each other and ourselves. The Maronites had all the alarming signs glued up their noses as early as in 1958. There and then, they could have designed their own give-and-take "Taef". They did not. Come Cairo agreement, our stairway to hell, and they could have refused it, but they signed. In their turn, the Sunnis, Druze and Shia never missed a chance to drag us in their cursed umma mud, spreading legs to abu 2roun 3abd el nassir, to 7afez el jerben, to the disgusting zmikk yassir.

Pity those who don't know the value of something dear until they lose it.

French-Lebanese businessman who once claimed to transport Gaddafi funds to Sarkozy campaign by suitcase 'arrested in Beirut' — RT World News

Authorities in Beirut have reportedly arrested a French-Lebanese businessman linked to allegations of illicit Libyan financing for Nicolas Sarkozy’s 2007 French presidential election campaign, on foot of an Interpol request.
Ziad Takieddine fled to the Lebanese capital earlier this year after a French court sentenced him to five years in prison in a separate case involving millions of euros he’d allegedly received for arms sales to Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
Takieddine previously claimed he had personally delivered suitcases carrying a total of €5 million from Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in Tripoli to Sarkozy’s chief of staff back in France in 2006 and 2007.

However, he retracted the claim about the Libyan funds last month, instead accusing the magistrate overseeing the trial of the former French president of having twisted his words to make him “say things that are totally contradictory” to what he actually said.
Takieddine will now be questioned by Lebanon’s general prosecutor to establish whether or not the charges against him are justified and can be proven in court, the AFP reported. If the case proceeds, his trial could be held in Lebanon, where he is a citizen, or in France, with him being extradited back there.
Sarkozy is currently on trial in a separate case, accused of corruption and influence-peddling for allegedly attempting to bribe a magistrate in return for information about an investigation into his party’s finances.

Good news if true.
But as usual in Lebanon we can't be optimistic because there are too much stuff going behind the scenes that empty any reforms from their meaning
