Seasonal differences are a part of a drawn plan to fill the
political vacuum in Lebanon, which will remain unbreakable
Eminence the Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah
considered the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of the Islamic
countries as an attempt to avoid criticism
by paying lip service.
Religious Authority Sayyed M.H. Fadlallah assured that Lebanon will
not collapse economically, for such a collapse will detribalize the
security of many countries .He pointed out that Lebanon will receive
some “shots” of aids through conferences or donations, so that
hope of salvation will not evaporate, regardless of the extent and
scope of the crises.
eminence was asked in his weekly seminar about the state of Lebanon in
2002, and he answered: We have always stressed that Lebanon in its
political structure, the atmosphere that engulfs its political regime,
and the international equation that contributed in creating its
role will always be unbreakable. That is why we saw that the calls for
dividing Lebanon were fruitless even during the civil war. Whenever,
there was a ceasefire or any truce, the Lebanese rushed to the other
sectors to prove that they are but one people. The discourse of
unity has imposed itself even on those who thought of sectarian
isolated entities. They went back to their senses knowing that their
dreams will not be realized.
believe that Lebanon will continue to be unbreakable in all
circumstances. Various economic and political problems will never
surpass a certain level. Since, on the one hand, the internal
political game is controlled by the regional and international
players, and it is also controlled by the Lebanese internal political
climate that runs against any separatist inclinations.
the seasonal differences which the country witnesses time and again
and which blur and obscure the more essentials issues, will find the
solutions that will restore calm again . The instability state, which
the Lebanese have to cope with, might well be a part of a drawn plan
to fill in the internal political vacuum. Although the region is full
with events, that the country is bound to be affected with.
the real problem does not lie in these political rows. It is the
economic crisis as well as the Israeli occupation with its
expansionist dreams. But we believe that it will not
economically collapse, especially as such a collapse will lead to an
instability at the security level in the region as a whole, and in
Israel in particular.
is why the country receives certain small “shots” of aid so that
the hope of salvation will not evaporate regardless of the extent of
the economic and political crises.
for religious pluralism, it does not constitute a problem by its
self. The problem is not in embracing or being committed to a
religion, because all religions call for the adoption of the same
spiritual values. The problem is in the tribal spirit that has
characterized all Lebanese diversities.
