That is correct but Michel Aoun was trashing Rafic Hariri the moment he got to Lebanon and Sunnis were still grieving for his death. Is Rafic Hariri corrupt? Yes, he's the godfather of Lebanese corruption, but Michel Aoun should have played it smarter and build a broader coalition around him.Now you're going back 15 years to entrench yourself in yet another imaginary argument. Maybe you weren't following much at the time but i shouyld remind you that the Future TV never ceased to mobilize its sectarian hatred towards Aoun and FPM. Future Movement religious figures spewed sectarian hatred in mosques, there were recordings that would make a pimp shy into his own clothes. FM politicians all around the country from Tripoli to Saida to Akkar and Denniye all the way to Mazare3 Shebaa cursing Aoun with vile sectarian propaganda and nobody cared to denounce any one of them. It went like this for years, unchecked by the politically correct assholes we see and hear today.
Spare me your retrospective attempt at finding a point; FPM rank and file have always adopted a unifying and secular approach to every little issue in the country. We were not the ones who turned the Serail into a mosque for friday prayers, we did not encourage religious figures to brew sectarian hatred, we accepted all democratically elected officials and representatives and respected everyone across the board. Our only drawback is that we don't have armed goons to enforce respect for ourselves like almost everyone does, because this seems to be the only way in this part of the world. Another reason to call the deplorables for what they really are.
