Opinion Time for MOU to wind down

Let me tell you a secret. The only positive outcome I counted on with the MoU, was its attempt at indirectly reconciling the christian and shia communities, a "let's be friends, forget our past civil war wounds and hope for the best in some unknown future to come", a kind of ya rabbi tigi fi 3eno wishful thinking, mostly on the part of FPM. General guidelines, no practices to follow.

As for Hizbullah, I'm sure it had, and still has, no evil plans to eat christian and sunni babies for snacks and nor to islamize the country. They know they can't and therefore they won't; unless cornered to death, they're cautious and cunning enough not to engage in such a suicidal project. Post Syria withdrawal, Hizbullah has simply been working on the domination of the political scene from inside the on one-leg limping state, from behind the curtains w men ta7t la ta7t, in waiting for the Mahdi and his Wilayah. w ba3den allah beyefrouj. There never was a plan on their part to engage in any country building project, something I suspect FPM, deep down, knew won't happen, but may also genuinely hoped for, or so were they naive enough to fully believe in.
Takeovers don't happen in Lebanon like they do in the Middle East. They materialize slowly through demographics and land buying.

When the involved know how the takeovers are made, then they should also know how to work to avoid them.

Hizbullah doesn't believe in the idea of Lebanon, a multiconfessional state where everyone is treated equally under the law.
It was never enthusiastic about supporting projects of pursuing any reforms that can benefit the country as a whole. (Remember when they opposed the Selaata plant?)
It's only interested in empowering its community, hence why it built its own army, schools, hospitals and even an alternative banking system.
The deterioration of the Lebanese economy means very little to Hizbullah considering it's fully funded by Iran.
The weaker the Lebanese state, the stronger Hizbullah.

You didn't tell him that Aoun is an opportunist who #knew and kept his mouth shut because he benefitted. You let me down bro.
