Everybody’s outraged and shocked by Inside Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq’s latest assertion that tens of detainees arrested on costs of taking pictures celebratory gunfire had been launched on account of political interference. Manshnouq went on guilty the judiciary and political interference for his or her launch, which is sort of ironic provided that he belongs to one of many ruling political events.
So how is that assertion surprising? It by no means occurred earlier than in Lebanon? Individuals getting out of jail as a result of they’ve a political cowl! What an outrage! What a scandalous declare! I wager you’ve by no means heard of anybody helped by a politician to get out of jail, get out of bother and even get his parking ticket cancelled. This isn’t a typical follow in Lebanon as a result of all of us abide by the legislation right here and don’t resort to wasta for nearly each single factor we do!
I feel we should always applaud the minister as a substitute of criticizing him at this level, as a result of whether or not deliberately or not, he in all probability made it more durable for some politicians and events to cowl up for a few of their brainless supporters. Extra importantly, and I’ve already talked about this matter earlier than, I hope staunch supporters of the demise penalty will rethink their place understanding that politicians get to decide on who will get killed and who doesn’t identical to they’re liberating detainees left and proper.
Final however not least, I ponder if anybody will trouble report celebratory gunfire to the ISF from now one. There are official exams happening this weekend so be sure that to cover within the basement or below your mattress until the celebrations are over.
