Ever since PM Saad Hariri introduced his resignation from KSA on Al Arabiya channel, we’ve all been receiving tons of jokes, memes and movies and whereas many of the jokes are fairly hilarious, the unhappy truth is that the joke is basically on us not on Saad Hariri.
I don’t wish to get into the small print of his resignation and whether or not it was compelled or not, to not point out all of the conspiracy theories round it, however the reality is easy: Our Prime Minister, who holds the second strongest place within the nation, needed to resign outdoors the nation for some motive and we all know nothing about his whereabouts ever since.
Now I don’t care whether or not you want Hariri or not, however that is humiliating to all of us Lebanese and we’re guilty for this case in the beginning. I see individuals bashing Hariri simply because they don’t like him, whereas his supporters are defending him blindly, however nobody understands what’s taking place and the Lebanese authorities, together with the Lebanese President, are clueless about what’s coming subsequent or what must be carried out.
We’re all laughing at the truth that Hariri could also be a hostage of the Saudi authorities, however we’re all hostages of the neighboring regimes and particularly those within the Gulf. We’re grow to be so depending on overseas powers economically, politically and militarily that we will’t even arise for our Prime Minister (regardless of who’s holding that place). We’ve been bragging for many years about being the one democracy and free nation within the area however we misplaced our manner a very long time in the past and obtained dragged into regional wars and politics and have become followers slightly than leaders.
Whereas we’re all busy making jokes, native banks are struggling to maintain funds of their accounts, companies are struggling greater than ever, corruption remains to be at its highest ranges, visitors is insufferable, the infrastructure is shit, we’re dumping a rubbish mountain into the Mediterranean and the checklist goes on and on.
Struggle and peace have been by no means the issue in Lebanon. Uncertainty has all the time been the true drawback and the best way our PM resigned, a primary in Lebanon’s historical past, plunges the nation into additional uncertainty.
All in all, I’m probably not laughing at jokes not as a result of I like Hariri, however as a result of I’m, as a Lebanese citizen, the one offended and humiliated by what’s taking place.
