Greetings and Good Day,
“ What matters most is behavioral attitude, political discourse and reforms achievements “
In an immediate evaluation to the cabinet statement approval in Lebanon, and the simultaneous STL indictment revelations; observers are keen to question the upcoming weeks and the consequences of the actions of the Lebanese government to upgrade its legitimacy or to lose it.
Areas of uncertainty abound where the Lebanese government should by definition be part of the international community, as we ignore the limits of its own independence and margin of free maneuver.
In concomitance with the Syrian growing protest and capability to maintain the initiative, the question is how will the Syrian losing gang implement reforms in Syria, empower governance in Lebanon and keep faith to its Iranian masters?
There is no doubt that the economic rope tightly put on the Syrian gang, will affect its own survival and shorten the duration of the cycle of decadence. While the Syrian state is witnessing a major transition, toward a very promising future, my hope is that Hezbollah in Lebanon will act in defiance of old dogmas and break the chains of rhetoric.
Lebanon needs most an elite that will lead the Middle East into development and prosperity.
Lebanon needs a behavioral elegance in attitude, an innovative political discourse and an achievement in the reforms process.
There is a golden opportunity for Hezbollah now that it succeeded to be the main power broker in Lebanon to detach itself from all regional players and to express an enlightened policy.
Hezbollah can facilitate the action of the STL and put in place a deal with it to save justice and elaborate modern governance.
Hezbollah can call in tandem with the lebanese president for a national conference and secure a Commission for Truth.
Hezbollah can enact much needed economic, constitutional and administrative reforms.
Hezbollah can set the motion of a political solution with Israel in conformity with Lebanese Interests.
Hezbollah can become the example for Arab Spring popular inspired movements and prepare the terrain for major benefits of the constituencies in an evolving world, fast and connected.
Hezbollah can embark on an immediate internal reform and evolve itself to meet the challenges and requirements of the 21st century.
Expectations are high that those who liberated South Lebanon will not miss the opportunity to liberate the Middle East from mal governance, historic arrogance and ignorance.
Will Hezbollah be up to these challenges?
If it will show courage and bravery, independents and liberals will act accordingly.
