Probably you didn't read my post very well, I said I accepted his political maneuver since 2005 because I estimated the nature of the battle requires it. (should I post again my disappointment when he allied himself to Michel El Murr and Franjieh???)read my post again. i said i didn't like GMA as much as you did, not i didn't like GMA. there is a difference. you are just motivated by your feelings to the extreme, they get the best of you, and this is what leads to blindly following someone or blindly hating someone.
Did you do that? what was the result ?the reality is that there is no such thing as pure good or pure evil in people; and you cannot create a leadership or rally people around a cause everyday. so you preserve what you have, you address its faults and fix them, you do not blast them to pieces.
Well an FPMer got owned, so Weezy being robbed is now all worth it.Isn't he the guy who held a wedding for his son (or daughter) that cost over $1M? And you are proud that this corrupt filth is "untouchable"?

You spoke my kind. It is a very sad situation. The judiciary is politicized corrupt and only sought when it is needed on a revenge mission. And in the end, it is crippled by sectarian red lines.
I have repeatedly asked for the judiciary to be an independent institution that functions outside the control of politicians and to be even more independent than the army. The commander of the army's loyalty can be to the president or commander in chief. By a judge or chief judge or attorney general should never have his loyalty to the president. His loyalty is to the law, to the constitution. Not to any person and not to the executive arm of government. The judiciary is an arm of government. It should not be subjugated to the will of the legislative and executive arms. It should be independent and be able to function on it's own and apply legislative orders.
I think first of all, we need an independent "law school" of the State set up by a legislative order, from which lawyers can graduate in a systemic and organized manner. And any lawyer must pass out from that school to practice law in Lebanon. And to be enrolled to study law, the best students in high school who have consistently scored above 90% on average per term in the last three years of school or in the last 9 terms should be given admission. In that way, only the brightest can practice law. Then the lawyers can vote to elect judges into the courts. You can have regional courts and a supreme court whereby each sect is represented by an elected judge or the main 5 or 6 sects are represented each by a judge, voted for by the body of lawyers. These 6 judges would have the final say on judicial matters. And the retirement age for judges should be 60.
Of course there may be similar pattern of arrangement in place. But the system is not free and independent and too many obstacles in limiting the effectiveness of the judiciary.
This would need an entire overhaul of the judiciary. It has to be completely independent and the politicians must have no hand in appointing any judge. Politicians should have no sort of immunity, both when in office and after. Politicians are servants to the people and not overlords and they should be treated as servants and held accountable and be punished when they are found guilty. That is the only way for judges to have the needed authority to exercise their responsibilities and hold everyone responsible and even the politicians and leaders themselves. You cant expect someone appointed by a corrupt politician to act or judge in a fair or acceptable manner. Even when he does, he would be doubted or disobeyed as we are witnessing. And when the judiciary is a joke in any country, the law will never be respected and the state would be either a weak one or a mafia one.
As much as I am opposed to indicting or holding Diab responsible, I feel as someone different from the rest and i believe he is innocent in respect to the port explosion and we will defend him and stand by him as ordianry people of this country, he should have respected the judge's invitation for questioning. He would have set a standard for law and order.
Also, in other countries, judges can actually enforce their judgement/orders and instruct the security agents like the police to execute an order or arrest. The judiciary should have that power to instruct the police to act. The judges do not wait for the ministry of interior or the government to act or enforce an order or judgment. The judiciary is an arm of government. At least it should have authority to instruct the police but not the army (since the president is supreme commander and not the supreme judge).
i didn’t read all of your post but I have one thing to say to you: The Judiciary did not have the power to instruct the police to capture the killer of Samer Hanna
Your accusation is unsubstantiated to start with, and even if true, yitfaddal anyone else charge whoever they want if they have proof.In a Sunnite wedding it’s the bride who pays for the wedding not the groom.
Ghada Aoun is selective with her corruption charges and is influenced by politicians.
Ahaaaa that’s exactly the difference between you and I: I don’t defend Bassil, let him see his day in court as soon as possible. You on the other hand, khalleek 3am tekhra bi shentenak nkeyeh bi tizak and enjoy the shit state you and your fellow kheryeneen created.Bassil is corrupt and is sanctioned by US courts for corruption yet you still defend him.
I guess you don’t mind yeser2ok also
To be clear no US court sanctioned Bassil. I don’t like the guy and he could very well be corrupt. However, he was sanctioned by the US administration. He was not judged in court (not even sure he could be judged in the US) so no, he was not sanctioned by US courts , this is plainly false.Bassil is corrupt and is sanctioned by US courts for corruption yet you still defend him.
I guess you don’t mind yeser2ok also
