المؤامرة المبارَكة
جهاد الزين

سمعنا أحيانًا على ألسنة بعض أسماء بارزة في السياسة اللبنانيّة أنّ الحراك الشعبي الذي تشهده كلّ المناطق اللبنانيّة، منذ ما يقارب الثلاثة اسابيع، هو نتيجة تدخّل خارجي أو من بعض السفارات المحليّة. أعطونا اسم هذه الجهة أو السفارة لنتبرّك بها، لأنّ سفارة تستطيع أن تحرّك هذه الأعداد الضخمة غير المسبوقة منذ مائة عام، أي منذ تأسيس الكيان اللبناني، والتي تملك القدرة على تحريك ما يفوق المليوني شخص في كلّ المناطق اللبنانيّة من أقصى جنوب لبنان إلى أقصى شمال لبنان، مرورًا ببيروت وطرابلس، هي جهة تستحقّ التبرّك بها، بسبب فهمها الرؤيوي والديناميكي لهذه الروح الوحدويّة العميقة. هذه الروح التي تجعل في لحظات أبناء وبنات النبطيّة وصور، يتكلّمون بلغة سياسيّة واحدة ناضجة تمامًا، هي اللغة والشعارات السياسيّة نفسها التي يتكلّم بها أبناء وبنات كسروان وجبيل وعكّار. وهذا يحصل في بلد نشأ نظامه السياسيّ على لغة وشعارات سياسيّة مختلفة لكلّ منطقة، بل نشأ على شعارات متناقضة وتربية بسيكولوجيّة وثقافة مختلفة، أنتجت حتّى الآن عدّة حروب أهليّة.

من هي هذه السفارة التي تستحق التبرّك وكلّ الإعجاب والتقدير، لهذه العبقريّة في التوقيت والتنظيم والفهم والتفهّم للحظة تاريخيّة، تعكس في ظرف سياسيّ داخليّ شديد ومتين، التركيب الشديد والمتين لبنى وأحزاب تقبض على ما كنّا نعتقد أنّه "جمهورها" الذي لا يُخترَق، فــ"تصطاد" هذه الروح الجامعة لتحوك هذه "المؤامرة" التي عاش النظام الطائفي اللبناني كلّ حياته، وخصوصًا بعد العام 1990 على إنتاجها وإعادة إنتاجها؟

لم نكن نعلم قبل ذلك أنّه في غرفة سوداء تحت الأرض أو فوقها، يعيش بين ظهرانينا جورج واشنطن صغير أو فلاديمير لينين صغير، أجنبيّان يحرّكان كلاهما أو أحدهما هذه الجماهير التي فجأة منذ حوالى أسبوعين "تتطاول" على قياصرة صغار لم يكن مسموحًا مجرّد إشارة إليهما، فتخدش الكرة البلّوريّة لنظام الخوف الكانتوني الطائفي، وتشير بأصابعها الشجاعة إلى "كلّن يعني كلّن" وبعضهم كان لا يقبل مجرّد الإيحاء إلى اسمه، فكيف بتسميته؟

بوركت هذه "المؤامرة" التي تسعى إلى المساس بجبال الفساد وأطنان الأموال المنهوبة في تعدّدية لا تحمل من اسمها سوى تعدّدية حقّ الفساد والنهب، الذي منحه لأنفسهم طغاة صغار، جعلوا من النظام السياسيّ اللبنانيّ أقوى نظام سياسيّ في الشرق الأوسط. ليس أقوى نظام سياسيّ في الشرق الأوسط فقط بل أحد أكثرأنظمته احترافًا ودربةً وعمالة للسفارات.

إنّ ما يحدث إذا استمر هذا الحلم الجميل، ولم تبدّد مؤامرة حقيقيّة لا وهميّة مضادّة نتائجه السياسيّة، هو "الهديّة" الأهمّ التي منحها الشعب اللبناني لنفسه في ذكرى مئويّة لبنان الكبير التي نستعد جميعًا لها، لأنّها تشير إلى أنّ لبنان، هذا الكيان الذي يحاط بكلّ أنواع التشكيك الكياني، حقّق أخيرًا أعجوبته الكبرى، وهو إمكان البناء والتعبير عن روح وحدويّة جامعة لم يَشهد لها مثيلًا.

لكنّ الأعاجيب هي عادةً معرّضة للتلاشي قبل غيرها في يوتوبيا الشعوب.

فحَذارِ من أنفسنا.

    Eastern Europe’s Populist Scam

    By The Editorial Board




    Demagogues like Hungary’s Viktor Orban denounce the European Union but corruptly exploit its farm subsidies.

    What is galling is how openly Prime Minister Viktor Orban does it, blaming the European Union for every imagined indignity or interference in Hungary’s affairs, while milking billions from Brussels to enrich his cronies and prop up his illiberal rule. He is not alone, as a Times investigation of the bloc’s lavish farm subsidies demonstrates in shocking detail — the governments of several formerly Communist Eastern European states have also cynically taken advantage of the union’s largess through opaque deals, feeding a new class of land barons.

    Perhaps even more galling is that the European Union knows all this, but prefers not to see or hear about the corruption for fear of upsetting the precarious bonds that hold the union together. One of the cardinal rules of the bloc is to defer to national leaders as much as possible to avoid just the sort of charges of infringing on national sovereignty that populist leaders across Europe, and Brexiteers in Britain, are so fond of making.

    Yet the Common Agricultural Policy, a mainstay of the union from its founding, is the biggest item in its central budget, accounting for about 40 percent of expenditures, or about $65 billion. Its mechanisms and focus have been regularly challenged and altered, but the fundamental notion of protecting the rural way of life has remained at its heart.

    Without effective oversight, however, the funds allotted to the bloc’s newest members — all provided by European taxpayers — have often become a lavish slush fund for political insiders, helping them amass wealth and consolidate power. The examples cited in the Times study are appalling — in the Czech Republic, the prime minister, Andrej Babis, is a billionaire whose companies collected at least $42 million in agricultural subsidies last year. In Bulgaria, the Academy of Science has found that 100 entities collect three-quarters of the main type of the union’s agricultural subsidies. In Slovakia, the top prosecutor has acknowledged the existence of an “agricultural Mafia,” and a journalist investigating the infiltration of the farm industry by Italian mobsters was murdered last year.

    And, of course, Hungary, where Mr. Orban arranged for political allies and family members to buy up land owned by the former Communist nation and to collect rich European Union subsidies on it. Then at political rallies, he assails the European Union for seeking to strip away farm aid and use the money to bring in migrants.

    There are many reasons that crony capitalism has found fertile soil in former Communist countries, not least among them a cavalier attitude toward defrauding the state that was prevalent in the secretive, centralized systems of the Soviet bloc. Leaders like Mr. Orban have also exploited a widespread sense in Central and East European societies of being patronized and ignored by the richer democracies to their west, and of being pushed toward socially progressive attitudes that still seem alien and decadent in the East. This makes it easy for populist politicians to depict European Union policies as the successor to Communist diktat while treating its handouts as their due, an approach similar to that of American conservatives who rail against “socialism” but regard ethanol credits or the oil depletion allowance as their entitlement.

    But the European Union’s see-no-evil approach to the misuse of billions in taxpayer funds is an unnecessary, patronizing and self-defeating concession to the new members. It’s a payoff to corrupt leaders to keep them in the European camp even as they blithely defy the bloc’s policies on immigration, rule of law and corruption.

    The story in The Times of Jozsef Angyan, who formerly worked with Mr. Orban in the mistaken belief that they shared the goal of helping small farmers, is instructive. Mr. Angyan at first helped Times reporters with their investigation, then stopped returning their calls. “How should I continue when nobody is behind me?” he told an acquaintance.

    Yet instead of standing behind reformers like Mr. Angyan, European Union officials regularly reject efforts to make the subsidy system more accountable and transparent. The officials actively concealed data sought by the Times reporters, claiming either that it didn’t exist or that it was too cumbersome to produce, and anxiously kept tabs on the investigation.

    The response of the union’s officials, once the Times investigation was published, was that their job was not to do the work of national governments, and that they were “acting precisely within our powers.” That may be, given current rules, but it should not prevent European Union commissioners and legislators from raising questions about how public funds are distributed and seeking rules that would address the worst abuses.

    It may not be the job of the European Union to run member countries, but neither should the union be in the business of propping up rulers who deliberately subvert the purpose of its subsidies.

    This is an example case of one of those who used George Soros name to defame people and organizations opposing their corrupt rule.

    Indeed, as the entourage or even the court of Viktor Orban used Soros name to shield itself and build conspiracy theories to shift the attention of the Public off the mafia attitude and criminal activities, here too in Lebanon, the same strategy is being played, the corrupt political/ sectarian group of warlords and thieves want to have full control on the awaited billions of Cedre & the future revenue of the gas resources, and to move the attention of the Lebanese Public off the theft, bribery and militia control of the country, towards a conspiracy theory relating Otpor or other organizations or personalities, so they could build this imaginative enemy and secure their rule that is based on defamation and slander, in order to smear & libel those who protest and even engage in an uprising that would name them and ask for their prosecution!

    Lebanon is going to a civil war people against each other. Not people against the corrupt politicians.
    You’re sitting here Fat, Dumb and Happy sounding cool and smart when you don’t even know who’s running the show on the streets and completely oblivious about Lebanon’s recent history with civil wars and what has been happening in the region and next to us during the past seven years.
    Anyone by now who really believes the movement in Lebanon is internal must be a complete idiot:

    History repeating itself.

    Here is a thread from seven years ago. Do you like the results?

    It's sad that this thread doesn't have any traction. Soros admitted to being the guy behind Ukraine's Orange revolution and many others...

    الصورة صارت واضحة وضوح الشمس:
    المشاكل الإقتصادية إلى حلحلة وبحبوحة، الدين العام إلى زوال والوضع الأمني ممتاز، الفساد منتهي...
    شرط توطين اللاجئ السوري.
    جماعة العنصرية وحقوق الإنسان عيروني سكوتكن لأنو الوضع شاذ جدًا، ومستغرب أكتر إنو ما في إبن مرا بالثورة العظيمة انتبه يطالب بالعودة الآمنة للاجئين يلي هني إخوة إلنا ومنحبّهن، وبدنا يرجعوا لأنو بلادهن صارت بألف خير الحمد لله.

    توطين ما في، فهمتو أو منعيد؟

    وخلال استقباله رئيس بعثة الاتحاد الأوروبي في لبنان، السفير رالف طراف، اليوم الجمعة 8 من تشرين الثاني، في قصر بعبدا الرئاسي بالعاصمة بيروت، اعتبر عون أن موقف الاتحاد الأوروبي “يتناقض مع الدعوة اللبنانية المتكررة لإعادة النازحين السوريين إلى بلادهم، لا سيما بعدما استقر الوضع في أكثر من 90% من الأراضي السورية، وانحسرت المواجهات المسلحة في منطقة محدودة جدًا”، بحسب تعبيره.
    (...)

    وأصدرت لجنتا الشؤون الخارجية والميزانية في البرلمان الأوروبي، في 9 من تشرين الأول الماضي، بيانًا بخصوص اللاجئين السوريين، أكد ضرورة تأمين قدرتهم على الاندماج والتوظيف على المدى الطويل، بطريقة متماسكة مع المجتمعات المضيفة.
