- Sayyid Nasrallah's speech today in the Bekaa was very different than his other speeches. He addressed the crowds by letting them know that Hizbullah's role as a party must change; that the party must be engaged in Lebanese politics and affairs. He also called for the implementation of the Taif Accord. (And two days ago he even talked of Bashir Gemayyil's 10,452 km2.) This was new rhetoric to my ears; well new as compared to what has been said and done prior to last Sunday at the eve of the elections in the South. Sayyid Nasrallah is breaking it slowly to the Hizbullah crowds the new reality that his party will be facing. What does this new language mean? Why the quick shift?
- Today I read that a group of FPM youth from the northern Metn who addressed Aoun asking him to dissolve his alliance with MP Michel Murr, reminding him of Murr's past actions and that they do not wish to compromise FPM's stands that they have long fought for. What many have speculated actually occurred and it was confirmed with this letter; the FPM is not about one person and its young supporters always emphasized that point and they proved it this time by asking of that one person not to represent them and their efforts and stands wrongly.
"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."
