The most powerful Lebanese person alive
Brazilian Vice President Michel Temer explains how his roots allowed him to rise to the top

This is the first article in a special series on Lebanese successes in Brazil. Read the rest as they arepublished online over the coming weeks, or pick up a copy of the entire special report in Executive’s July print edition.



Most days, Btaaboura is a soporific place. The north Lebanese village is home to only a few hundred residents, many of whom have long-since retired. On any given afternoon the hot topics of conversation are likely to be the weather, the neighbors and perhaps the renovations.

Yet if you happened to pass by on a late November afternoon three years ago, you would have been excused for thinking it was the center of the country. Processions of people waited by the roads as a cavalcade drove in, flanked by helicopters and endless security details. The media’s cameras were not far behind.

For on that day, a long-lost resident returned, and he was not just any old traveller. As vice president of Brazil, a country of nearly two hundred million people and the world’s seventh largest economy, Michel Temer has a strong claim to being the globe’s most powerful politician of Lebanese origins. Indeed when he met with President Michel Sleiman on that same trip, the Lebanese president joked about his own inferiority. “He said ‘you are more president of Lebanon than me as you have eight million, we have five million!’” Temer says, referencing the huge Lebanese–Brazilian population.

On that day, several hundred residents were treated to lunch outside where, in true Lebanese fashion, the guest was forced to eat far beyond his capacity or desire. “They keep putting it on your plate and you have to eat it,” Temer recalls with a wry grin.

Struggle and sacrifice

The story of Temer’s family is, like so many immigrant tales, one of sacrifice. Moving from Btaaboura to São Paulo in the mid–1920s, his young parents (who had married at just 18 and 14) already had three children. Temer was to be their eighth, and last, of their offspring.

Like many first generation immigrants, the Temers took to manual work — setting up a small farm and shop in a small town in the state of São Paulo in hope of a better future for their children. “My father always said that Brazil is the place to ‘make America,’ and by ‘make America’ he meant the place to grow — to prosper,” Temer says in his luxurious tenth floor office in central São Paulo. Yet it soon became clear that his father’s chances of making enough to support such a large family were limited, so the eldest children were commanded to abandon their hopes of education in favor of their younger siblings.

His oldest brother was reticent and in his mid-teens ran away to take the exams for medical school. Much to his surprise, he got in. Congratulations, his father said, but it was not enough — the family needed him to help bring up the younger ones. “He was one of the smartest [but] he dedicated his life to working with trade — helping my father so that me and the others could study,” Temer recalls. In the end the four eldest worked, while the youngest quartet all trained as lawyers.

With the pressure born of this sacrifice, Temer studied hard at university — becoming involved in university politics early on. It was a revolutionary time for the country’s youth — in 1964 a coup d’état brought the military to power. Angry young movements sprung up to fight back, with current President Dilma Rousseff among those that resorted to radical means — eventually being jailed for alleged guerilla activities. Temer was also resisting but more passively — becoming increasingly involved in student politics.

A talented graduate, he started working in the legal field. By 1983 he had risen to become attorney general of São Paulo, the following year being appointed secretary of public security for the city. Yet it wasn’t until 1986 that his political career began in earnest — winning a seat in the country’s parliament which he still holds. The military’s twenty-year rule had collapsed the year earlier and Temer remembers an exciting time. “It was a moment of vitality because we were recovering our democracy. Because I was an expert in constitutional law I played a big role in rebuilding democracy in our country,” he says.

Two decades of work in politics followed, initially becoming speaker of the parliament and later head of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party (PMDB) — currently the country’s second largest. It was when they became the junior partner in the government led by Rousseff in late 2010 that Temer was called upon to play his most prominent role yet.

Trading on his roots

One of his roles in the current government is as head of Brazil’s policies toward the Arab world — particularly in terms of trade. Since the 2005 formation of the Summit of South American–Arab Countries under the government of then-President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, trade between the two regions has blossomed. In 2012 Arab–Brazilian trade reached $25.11 billion, up 3.26 percent on the previous year and around $11 billion a decade earlier. Raw materials form the bulk of Arab exports, while Brazil sells food exports and other goods.

Yet trade with Lebanon has remained relatively limited. Temer believes this can change in the coming years. “Our ambassadors are always in close contact — the Lebanese ambassador in Brazil and the Brazilian ambassador in Lebanon,” he says, without providing more detail. Among the companies he was lobbying for during his 2011 visit was the Brazilian state oil company Petrobras, which has applied for the right to bid on Lebanon’s nascent offshore oil and gas sector. Yet with the bids delayed by Lebanese political wrangling and Petrobras hit with a series of corruption allegations, Temer admits a deal is currently unlikely. “Petrobras went through the pre-qualification stage. It is still ongoing but because of Petrobras’ interests abroad it wasn’t possible yet.”

Only anger growing

Temer says the achievement he is most proud of in office is cutting Brazil’s poverty rates. He argues that under his government and the previous one, Brazil’s economic growth has enabled 40 million people to be lifted out of poverty. “Now [the 40 million] are part of the middle class, granted the lower middle class, but they are not in poverty anymore,” he says.

Yet after a decade of rapid growth, recent years have been tougher for Brazil and its government. In 2010 growth was nearly 8 percent, but that has fallen to around 1 percent last year. Inflation is high, while a series of strikes have crippled the country and reduced confidence.

Temer, whose government faces an election at the end of the year, believes the fundamentals are strong. “There is much talk about the economy not going well but the truth is the daily economy is going well,” he argues. “If the economy were not going well, [this would mean] it would affect the industrial sector and there would be unemployment — but we don’t have unemployment.” He is right that unemployment — currently measured at 4.9 percent — has actually fallen from 6 percent last summer, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit. “Confidence is very high in our country. The government is taking steps to boost the industrial sector and to improve foreign investment.”

The ongoing World Cup, he says, is a sign of Brazil’s “prestige growing internationally,” as are the forthcoming Olympic Games in Rio — despite the ongoing protests that have at times threatened to overshadow the football tournament.

Yet far from signalling a lack of confidence in the Rousseff government, Temer believes these protests are a sign of a maturing political climate. “We have a theory about these protests. Since the reinstallment of democracy with the constitution of 1988 we have lived through three different phases of democracy,” he says. The first was liberal democracy in which freedom of expression was installed, but there was little support for the country’s millions of poor. In the second they moved towards social democracy — “bread on the table,” Temer says. “This is what allowed these 40 million people to have social [mobility].”

The third phase, he says, is efficiency of services — both in the public and private sector. “A few years ago you would call a private company and they would keep you on hold for half an hour. Nowadays people don’t accept this. We have entered a third phase which is efficiency. This is what the people are demanding in the street and what the government is responding to,” he says.

While Brazil will remain his priority, Temer is deeply proud of his Lebanese roots — which he says helped him achieve his goals. In particular he thinks the “fraternity” and close-knit family ties within Lebanese communities help create strong individuals. This, he says, was signified by the fact that the statue erected by the residents of Btaaboura for his visit on that brisk November day was not of him, but his father. “Miguel Temer, father of the vice president of Brazil,” the sign below it read.

كونغرس البرازيل يعزل رئيستها ويأتي بلبناني مكانها

ميشال تامر، يحكم خامس دولة مساحة وسكاناً بالعالم، و3 من أشقائه ولدوا بقرية لبنانية
الخميس 5 شعبان 1437هـ - 12 مايو 2016م

لندن - كمال قبيسي
عزل الكونغرس البرازيلي رئيسة البلاد، ديلما روسّيف، بتوصله صباح الخميس إلى الغالبية المطلوبة، وهي 41 صوتاً، في جلسة تصويت تاريخية بدأها 11 صباح الأربعاء، وحضرها 78 من أصل 81 عضواً، وستنتهي 12 ظهر الخميس بتوقيت غرينيتش، وفيها تم منح 71 عضواً حق التحدث 15 دقيقة لكل منهم، وبنهاية حديثه يعلن علناً عن تأييده أو رفضه عزل أول امرأة تتولى الرئاسة في تاريخ بلاد الأمازون.

وبما أن 58 تحدثوا حتى 6 صباح الخميس بتوقيت غرينيتش، منهم 41 أعلنوا عن تأييدهم لإقصائها و16 رفضوا، فيما امتنع واحد عن التصويت، فإن تنحيتها تمت قانونياً بالجلسة التي ستستمر، فقط لمعرفة أصوات البقية، وهم 20 عضواً، وهي جلسة تابعتها "العربية.نت" في لندن عبر بث تلفزيوني مباشر من مجلس الشيوخ البرازيلي، وبالتوصل إلى هذه الغالبية المطلوبة أصبح ميشال تامر، نائب المعزولة، أول حامل للجنسية اللبنانية يحتل المنصب الأول في دولة غير لبنان، العاجز منذ عامين عن انتخاب رئيس خلفاً لمن انتهت في مايو 2014 ولايته، وهو ميشال سليمان.


في 2011 زار لبنان والتقى برئيسه ميشال سليمان، وفي 2013 زار فلسطين واستقبله الرئيس محمود عباس، وفي العام نفسه زار أبوظبي، ثم دبي وكان له لقاء بحاكمها الشيخ محمد بن راشد آل مكتوم، وزار عمان واستقبله السلطان قابوس



تامر الذي أبصر النور قبل 75 سنة في إحدى مدن ولاية سان باولو، يحكم بالوكالة بدءاً من اليوم الخميس، دولة هي الخامسة في العالم بالمساحة البالغة 8 ملايين و515 ألف كيلومتر مربع، أي 814 مرة أكبر من مساحة لبنان، والخامسة أيضاً بعدد السكان البالغين 206 ملايين، منهم 6 ملايين لبناني مغترب فيها ومتحدر.

والعزل، أو "التنحية" وربما "سحب الثقة" أو "الإقصاء" كترجمة لمصطلح Impeachment الذي استخدموه في حملة شعبية ونيابية استمرت سنة تقريباً لإطاحة روسّيف عن منصبها، هو عقاب لها على مخالفتها القوانين وتورطها بفساد متنوع، أتت عليه "العربية.نت" في تحقيق موسع الشهر الماضي، وأسوأ الفساد كان بشركة Petrobras النفطية الوطنية، وهو ما شحن البرازيليين بالغضب عليها، فشمروا عن سواعدهم واحتجوا بتظاهرات مليونية نادت بتنحيتها كثاني رئيس تقصيه بلاد الأمازون في تاريخها بعد فرنندو كولور دي ميللو، الرجل الذي ذاق طعم الرئاسة 21 شهراً، انتهت في 1992 بعزله ومنعه من أي منصب رسمي طوال 8 سنوات.

ودمعت عيناه حين دخل البيت
بتوقف روسّيف، وهي بلغارية الأصل عمرها 68 وعازبة بلا أبناء، عن ممارسة عملها، يصبح نائبها تامر رئيساً بالوكالة طوال مدة محاكمتها التي ستستمر 6 أشهر، وسط تأكيد استنتجته "العربية.نت" من مطالعتها في مواقع أهم صحف البرازيل، بأن تامر سيبقى رئيساً حتى ديسمبر 2018 موعد الانتخابات المقبلة لرئاسة دولة سكانها 40 مرة أكثر من سكان لبنان، حيث ولد معظم أفراد عائلته بقرية اسمها "بتعبورة" وزارها مرتين، وفي الأولى دمعت عيناه حين دخل البيت، حيث ولد والده و3 من أشقائه السبعة. أما البقية، وهو أصغرهم، فولدوا بالبرازيل، ولم يبق حياً من الجميع سوى 3 فقط.


الطريق الرئيسي باسمه في قرية بتعبورة، إلا أنهم سيمحون كلمة نائب ليصبح شارع ميشال تامر رئيس البرازيل، وصورة للبيت حيث ولد أبوه و3 من أشقائه، وثانية له وهو في مسجد الشيخ زايد بأبوظبي



وكان البرلمان البرازيلي صوّت الشهر الماضي على عزل روسّيف، وأحال قضيتها للكونغرس الذي سيحاكمها بعد أن نجح بإقصائها اليوم بتهم خطيرة: التلاعب بالموازنة لإخفاء حجم العجز الفعلي فيها، والتخفيف من تأثيره في الأزمة الاقتصادية، بهدف تشجيع الناس في 2014 على إعادة انتخابها، كما التورط بفضائح فساد، وتوقيع مراسيم حمّلت مصارف حكومية نفقات بمليارات الدولارات، من دون الحصول على موافقة البرلمان.

وبعض السوء الذي رأوه منها، كان استهتارها بحساسية البلاد وعدم مراعاتها لاقتصادها الحرج، حين ضبطوها العام الماضي تستقل طائرة خاصة، تابعة للجيش، لتطير من العاصمة برازيليا إلى ريو دي جنيرو، حيث كانت على موعد مع طبيب تجميل ليزيل انتفاخات جلدية تحت عينيها، إلا أنهم ردوا لها الصاع صاعين في الكونغرس الأربعاء وفجر اليوم الخميس، وكان كل عضو تحدث عنها يصفها بالأسوأ، كأن يقول "هذه المخلوقة" أو "هذه التي في ألفورادا" وهو اسم القصر الرئاسي بالعاصمة، وآخر وصفها بماري أنطوانيت البرازيل، في إشارة إلى ملكة فرنسا التي قطعوا رأسها بمقصلة لتبذيرها وفسادها، مع أن روسّيف يسارية وشيوعية الميول.

أما إقالتها نهائياً فتحتاج إلى تصويت ثلثا الكونغرس، وهو مضمون منذ الآن وأكيد، طبقاً لما تجمع عليه معظم وسائل الإعلام البرازيلية، ومنها ما ذكر الأربعاء بأنها ستتبلغ رسمياً الخميس بنتيجة التصويت، لتسلم منصبها إلى تامر الذي شكل حكومة من 22 وزيراً، سيعلن عنها الخميس أيضاً. كما ستبث المعزولة كلمة الخميس عبر فيديو في مواقع التواصل، ولا أحد غيرها يعلم بمضمونها، تليها كلمة من ميشال تامر كرئيس جديد للبرازيليين.

وفي زيارته الثانية منحوه الجنسية
ديلما روسّيف فازت برئاسة البرازيل في 2010 ثم أعادوا انتخابها في 2014 لولاية ثانية من 4 سنوات، إلا أنها لم تهنأ بنصفها المتبقي بعد اكتشاف تورطها بكل ما اعتبروه فساداً، لذلك ركزوا عليها شعبياً ونيابياً حتى تمكنوا عبر البرلمان من توصية بعزلها، حقق فيها الكونغرس ووجدها قانونية، فعقد جلسة تصويت تاريخية، استيقظت بعدها البرازيل لتجد تامر رئيساً مكانها، متمتعاً بكامل صلاحياتها، وهو الذي كان نائبها وحليفها، لكنه اضطر للانضمام إلى المعارضة، انصياعاً لرغبة البرازيليين بعزلها وتنحيتها.


ديلما روسّيف اختارت تامر نائبا لها منذ توليها الرئاسة في 2010 ثم عارضها انصياعاً لرغبة الغاضبين منها



وأكثر ما ساعد على إيجاد مناخ مناسب للتنحية، هو أن البرازيل المصنفة سابع اقتصاد بالعالم، تعبت وعانت الكثير منذ انتخاب ديلما روسّيف، ولا تزال تعبة وتعاني من جمود اقتصادي كبير، وتراجع في الناتج العام وصلت نسبته إلى 3.8% العام الماضي، مع توقع بتراجع مماثل هذا العام، وارتفاع مرتقب في الدين العام والعجز والبطالة، وتضخم نسبته 10 % تقريباً، لذلك انهارت شعبيتها سريعاً، ولم يجدوا دواء إلا آخر العلاج، وهو الكيّ الذي وجدوه بالعزل وسحب الثقة.

أما تامر، الأب لخمسة أبناء من صديقة وزوجتين، فيمكن للراغبين بمعلومات مفصلة عنه وعن أبويه وهجرتهما من لبنان، قراءة ما نشرته "العربية.نت" عنه وعن زيارتيه إلى لبنان، وأثناءهما أمضى وقتاً في قرية عائلته، المتواجد فيها شارع باسمه كنائب للرئيس، وهي "بتعبورة" بالشمال اللبناني، وفي ثاني زيارة رافقته زوجته الحالية، وهي ملكة جمال سابقة، تصغره بأكثر من 43 سنة، وحامل حالياً في شهرها السادس بابنهما الثاني، وفي تلك الزيارة منحه الرئيس اللبناني ميشال سليمان الجنسية اللبنانية، فأصبح تامر رئيساً للبرازيل، ولم ينتخب لبنان رئيساً منذ انتهت ولاية سليمان للآن، وهكذا كان.

Let's not forget his own possible corruption and political games...

Corruption accusation
As part of the corruption investigations of Operation Car Wash Temer is under investigation for allegedly receiving more than US$1.5 million from a company that received construction contracts from Petrobras; Temer denies wrongdoing, characterizing the payments as legal campaign donations.[6]

Role in the impeachment process against Dilma Rousseff
Main article: Impeachment process against Dilma Rousseff
In 2015 and 2016, Temer has been involved in controversy as Dilma Rousseff's impeachment process unfolds. In December 2015, Temer sent a letter to the president complaining about his distance from government decisions. The letter began with the Latin proverb "Verba Volant, Scripta Manent" (spoken words fly, written words remain). Temer then describes the communication as “personal,” and a means of unburdening himself about various complaints against the president. He said Rousseff has made him look like a “decorative” vice president rather than an active one, despite having being invited to support her government several times in the dialogue with Congress, a role he only accepted in 2015.

The letter has been commented and mocked on Brazilian social media, with images depicting the vice president as a Christmas decoration, making fun of his use of Latin, and photos purporting to show the president laughing while she reads the missive, among many other things. The president’s office had no immediate comment on the images,[7] but Rousseff had condemned him as a traitor to her administration.[8]

Later, in April 2016, an audio file of Temer was leaked to Brazilian media. In the file, Temer speaks as if the impeachment process had already been confirmed and he was the new president.[9]

“I don’t want to generate false expectations,” Temer said on the recordings, which were first published by Folha de S. Paulo on Monday afternoon. “Let’s not think that a possible change in government will solve everything in three or four months.”

The leak came just hours before a special lower house committee was scheduled to vote whether to back the request to impeach the president, generating complaints and accusations of treachery and lack of support from a vice president conspiring against the elected president.The vice-president alleged it was sent incorrectly to a WhatsApp group of his party's representatives in Congress.

Don't get your hopes up. This guy is bringing Goldman Sachs and IMF guys to run Brazil.

To See the Real Story in Brazil, Look at Who Is Being Installed as President — and Finance Chiefs

It’s not easy for outsiders to sort through all the competing claims about Brazil’s political crisis and the ongoing effort to oust its president, Dilma Rousseff, who won re-election a mere 18 months ago with 54 million votes. But the most important means for understanding the truly anti-democratic nature of what’s taking place is to look at the person whom Brazilian oligarchs and their media organs are trying to install as president: the corruption-tainted, deeply unpopular, oligarch-serving Vice President Michel Temer (above). Doing so shines a bright light on what’s really going on, and why the world should be deeply disturbed.

The New York Times’s Brazil bureau chief, Simon Romero, interviewed Temer this week, and this is how his excellent article begins:

RIO DE JANEIRO — One recent poll found that only 2 percent of Brazilians would vote for him. He is under scrutiny over testimony linking him to a colossal graft scandal. And a high court justice ruled that Congress should consider impeachment proceedings against him.

Michel Temer, Brazil’s vice president, is preparing to take the helm of Brazil next month if the Senate decides to put President Dilma Rousseff on trial.

How can anyone rational believe that anti-corruption anger is driving the elite effort to remove Dilma when they are now installing someone as president who is accused of corruption far more seriousthan she is? It’s an obvious farce. But there’s something even worse.


House Speaker Eduardo Cunha.

The person who is third in line to the presidency, right behind Temer, has been exposed as shamelessly corrupt: the evangelical zealot and House speaker Eduardo Cunha. He’s the one who spearheaded the impeachment proceedings even though he got caught last year squirreling away millions of dollars in bribes in Swiss bank accounts, after having lied to Congress when falsely denying that he had any accounts in foreign banks. When Romero asked Temer about his posture toward Cunha once he takes power, this is how Temer responded:
Mr. Temer defended himself and top allies who are under a cloud of accusations in the scheme. He expressed support for Eduardo Cunha, the scandal-plagued speaker of the lower house who is leading the impeachment effort in Congress, saying he would not ask Mr. Cunha to resign. Mr. Cunha will be the next in line for the presidency if Mr. Temer takes over.

By itself, this demonstrates the massive scam taking place here. As my partner, David Miranda, wrote this morning in his Guardian op-ed: “It has now become clear that corruption is not the cause of the effort to oust Brazil’s twice-elected president; rather, corruption is merely the pretext.” In response, Brazil’s media elites will claim (as Temer did) that once Dilma is impeached, then the other corrupt politicians will most certainly be held accountable, but they know this is false, and Temer’s shocking support for Cunha makes that clear. Indeed, press reports show that Temer is planning to install as attorney general — the key government contact for the corruption investigation — a politician specifically urged for that position by Cunha. As Miranda’s op-ed explains, “The real plan behind Rousseff’s impeachment is to put an end to the ongoing investigation, thus protecting corruption, not punishing it.”

But there’s one more vital motive driving all of this. Look at who is going to take over Brazil’s economy and finances once Dilma’s election victory is nullified. Two weeks ago, Reuters reported that Temer’s leading choice to run the central bank is the chair of Goldman Sachs in Brazil, Paulo Leme. Today, Reuters reported that “Murilo Portugal, the head of Brazil’s most powerful banking industry lobby” — and a long-time IMF official — “has emerged as a strong candidate to become finance minister if Temer takes power.” Temer also vowed that he would embrace austerity for Brazil’s already-suffering population: He “intends to downsize the government” and “slash spending.”


In an earning calls last Friday with JP Morgan, the celebratory CEO of Banco Latinoamericano de Comercio Exterior SA, Rubens Amaral, explicitly described Dilma’s impeachment as “one of the first steps to normalization in Brazil,” and said that if Temer’s new government implements the “structural reforms” that the financial community desires, then “definitely there will be opportunities.” News of Temer’s preferred appointees strongly suggests Mr. Amaral — and his fellow plutocrats — will be pleased.

Meanwhile, the dominant Brazilian media organs of Globo, Abril (Veja), Estadão — which Miranda’s op-ed discusses at length — are virtually unified in support of impeachment, as in No Dissent Allowed, and have been inciting the street protests from the start. Why is that revealing? Reporters Without Borders just yesterday released its 2016 Press Freedom Rankings, and ranked Brazil 103 in the world because of violence against journalists but also because of this key fact: “Media ownership continues to be very concentrated, especially in the hands of big industrial families that are often close to the political class.” Is it not crystal clear what’s going on here?

So to summarize: Brazilian financial and media elites are pretending that corruption is the reason for removing the twice-elected president of the country as they conspire to install and empower the country’s most corrupted political figures. Brazilian oligarchs will have succeeded in removing from power a moderately left-wing government that won four straight elections in the name of representing the country’s poor, and are literally handing control over the Brazilian economy (the world’s seventh largest) to Goldman Sachs and bank industry lobbyists.

This fraud being perpetrated here is as blatant as it is devastating. But it’s the same pattern that has been repeatedly seen around the world, particularly in Latin America, when a tiny elite wages a self-protective, self-serving war on the fundamentals of democracy. Brazil, the world’s fifth most populous country, has been an inspiring example of how a young democracy can mature and thrive. But now, those democratic institutions and principles are being fully assaulted by the very same financial and media factions that suppressed democracy and imposed tyranny in that country for decades.

being a rogue and traitor surely runs in the blood. this guy is nothing to be proud of, being of lebanese origin. he is the geagea of brazil. i would have compared him to Jumblatt but he is not Druze and Jumbi is a special breed of traitors.

Lebanese do not even have the right to be proud of him even if this guy was an angel; because if this guy wants a lebanese passport today, he wouldn't get it for being born to lebanese parents, but perhaps for his position. Gebran Bassil and Nabih Berri will unite to speed up his application process. money unites lebanese politicians.

lebanon is like an irresponsible parent who gives birth to its bastard children and throws them into the streets for other people to take care of. when lebanese emigrate for a better life to other countries, there is no guaranty they will remain lebanese or their blood will. their descendants end up losing their citizenship and denied their right of origin and citizenship by the lebanese government. you only get a hint that these bastard lebanese living and scavenging in other countries are lebanese when the bastard lebanese government and politicians know the bank account figures or position of the abandoned lebanese bastard. sha3eb baddo w bala haya2. i have several relatives in this dilemma. no citizenship for them because their parents or their grandparents end up having their names removed in lebanon as expats who may one day return. neither are the women allowed to give citizenship to their children. to be lebanese, you must live and fight and die in lebanon, even in poverty and war.

Sho dakhal el sect bel corruption?
Take for example Nabih berri el 7arami, if his sect was maronite or druze or sunni we are still gonna call him harami regardless.
Also those south lebanese army were mostly shi3a traitors, does that mean the sect is as such? non! Does that mean we can say "it runs in the blood"? non!

You can't label a person's sect under corruption. You find lots of corrupt people from all walks of life. It's not the sect that makes a person corrupt. In Lebanon you have plenty of examples, you have good lebanese and bad ones.
This guy (Temer) is in unison with the "monetary elite".
