Hizbullah gained legitimacy regardless of LF actions, but directly by FPM's. Why would you lament LF but not FPM?Your presence in the government gave nothing but legtimacy to HA.
You only argue the President during the Council while bsaynet ma byensme3 7eskon when Hassan Khalil or HA speack.
Too bad that you really believe this opposition crap. Everyone knows you are there for the appointees and power. Imagine during the agreement between FPM and LF, FPM asked for the President's support, while all what LF cared is the share.
One thing I've always disagreed with LF on, though I understand why they do it, is how they only attack FPM, and to a lesser degree Hizbullah, but give others a pass. They do it because they are the weaker Christian party in terms of Parliamentary seats, so FPM forms their only competition. In order to gain power, they must defeat FPM and in order to defeat FPM they must turn public opinion against them (in Lebanon, the Christian public opinion, mostly). The only way to do that is to put the most powerful Christian party under a magnifying glass and blast them.
Why would they waste their limited resources attacking Amal? They gain sympathy from their own base and NOTHING in terms of new voters, if they do that.
Nevertheless, the content of LF speech and the direction at which it is directed is crystal clear, and the performance of their ministers have thus far been exemplary. Other parties want to conspire against LF and isolate them because LF is working towards a functional State, while the rest want to divide the pie among each others and put the same breed of corrupt public employees rather than putting competent people where they deserve to be.
LF has every right to demand positions at top levels of government because their constituency demands to be represented. When LF flip flops on their cause and principles in return for few appointments here and there, you can come and talk. This is the weakest whataboutism I have ever seen. The two parties do not even compare.
When LF becomes the more powerful Christian party, I will judge them in the same manner I'm judging FPM with. I think that's fair. Until then, stop making deals and start implementing real change and real reform. Stop brandishing the دويلة against those who would seek the rise of a دولة.
