Alloush Warns: Vacuum means Constituent Assembly and Legalization of Hezbollah arms

Mustafa Alloush compared Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah in 2012 to Goebbels , Hitler's right hand man and the German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda of Nazi Germany. "Like Goebbels he does not run the show. The show is run from Iran, by Sayyed Khamenei and the ideology founded by Imam Khomeini.

Future Movement politburo member and former MP Mustafa Alloush has warned that any “parliamentary vacuum” may  lead to a constituent assembly  which  will lead to the legalization of Hezbollah’s   controversial arms

“Vacuum in the legislative authority has never happened throughout Lebanon’s modern  history, and should it happen this time, it would mean heading to a constituent assembly which we have been trying to avoid. Everyone would then lose, because change would affect the entire political structure in Lebanon,” Alloush told the Saudi daily Asharq al-Awsat in remarks published Sunday.

“The first thing that Hezbollah will demand from  the constituent assembly will be the legalization of its arms and its relation with Iran that is bypassing the state and its institutions,” the former lawmaker warned.

He noted that failure to agree on a new electoral law puts the country before two possibilities: “holding the elections under the current law or a ‘non-technical’ extension of the parliament’s term.”

“A political crisis is inevitable because all the forces have escalated their stance and voiced existential slogans,” Alloush added.

“The president has openly announced that his presidential term would be considered a failure should the elections be held under the current  1960 law, and the prime minister has noted that failure to pass an electoral law would indicate that the government has failed ,” Alloush  said.

Aoun’s ally , the Iranian backed Hezbollah has repeatedly called for an electoral law fully based on proportional representation but other political parties, especially the Future Movement, have rejected the proposal and argued that the party’s controversial arsenal of arms would prevent serious competition in regions where the Iran-backed party has clout.In 2013 Lebanese Forces and The Future Movement backed by the PSP agreed on a hybrid electoral law which calls for 54% of the MPs to be elected under the majoritarian winner-takes-all system and 46 % under the proportional representation system. This draft law was rejected by the Hezbollah-led March 8 opposition.

Also in 2013 Future Movement leader PM Saad Hariri rejected the electoral law that is based on proportional representation because there will be competition in some regions, but there cannot be any competition in other regions, because of the presence of Hezbollah weapons in them.

Hariri was referring to the 2009 election in the areas dominated by Hezbollah. According to the reports that surfaced back then Hezbollah gunmen prevented their rivals from voting and the results of the election showed it. On the other hand in the March 14 dominated areas several Hezbollah backed candidates won the election that was based on winner take all . In a proportional representation system Hezbollah will be able to gain more seats in the March 14 dominated areas but will not lose any seats in its dominated areas as long as it is allowed to keep its arms and use them internally for political gain .

According to analysts Hezbollah is trying to use Aoun to dominate Lebanon by insisting on adopting the proportional law in a single or several expanded electoral districts.

The country has not voted for a parliament since 2009, with the legislature instead twice extending its own mandate.

The 2009 polls were held under an amended version of the 1960 electoral law and the next elections are scheduled for May 2017.

Constituent Assembly

There are rising concerns  in Lebanon that if current situation leads to a parliamentary vacuum    there will be no choice but to demand a constituent assembly to change the country’s constitution and its political sys­tem.

MP  Talal Ar­slan, head of  the Lebanese Democratic Party — which is very  closely  tied to Damascus and Hezbollah — called  for a constituent assembly last September.

“Lebanon is on the brink of ca­tastrophe,” he said at a news con­ference. He added that a constitu­ent assembly to change a system of rule that was agreed by the 1989 Taif agreement that ended Leba­non’s civil war was the only way to return things to normal in the country.

Hezbollah chief  Hassan Nasrallah called for a con­stituent assembly in June 2012 to build a “real state”, as he put it. This is something that March 14 views as an attempt by Hezbollah to impose a Sunni-Shia-Christian status quo on the Lebanese political system, rather than the Christian- Muslim parity that is enshrined in the Taif agreement constitution.

Arslan’s warnings about the col­lapse of Lebanon’s political system are demonstrated by Hezbollah  continued behavior  in seeking to by­pass the state and impose its will through force of arms and drag­ging the country into the conflict in neighbouring Syria.

The March 14 alliance rejects any constituent assembly at this time, saying that the current circum­stances would not allow for a bal­anced debate due to Hezbollah’s ability to bring its arms into play.  They are concerned that Hezbollah has a clear agenda of its own that aims to change the status quo in Lebanon and impose a polit­ical system that is more in line with  Iran.

Dr. Elias Abou Assi, political science professor at the Saint Joseph University, was quoted as saying  in June 2014  “the very idea of the constituent assembly represents a coup endeavor and a sort of a plot to destroy the foundations upon which Lebanon is built.”

    “Lebanon is on the brink of ca­tastrophe” (c).

    Yet strangely, nobody really seems to care. And “the security situation is under control”, so ex-pats and rich Gulf Arabs should come visit pronto, golden toilet bowls included. Go figure. Lebanon, a country of a thousand wonders (and a hundred militias).

    ‘Declassified CIA Memo Shows How US Has Been Plotting Syrian Regime Change For Decades’
    A newly declassified CIA memo from the 1980s discusses how “US interests [in Syria] would be best served by a Sunni regime controlled by business-oriented moderates”

      As opposed to an evil dictator/baby killer that has little regard for human rights. Backed by terrorist isolationist like Iran, and equally war minded and self serving Russians.

            There will be no peace in Syria until Assad is gone. Plain and simple.

          • vs

            Agree. But may be also there will no peace in Syria even after Assad is gone. Syria is failed state. “In my opinion, only nine Orab states can be called successful. These
            are Kuwait, Qatar and seven states belonging to the United Orab
            Emirates: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm al-Qaywain,
            Fujairah and Sharjah. These are successful, full-fledged, quiet countries. At the heart of each of them is one tribe. Thus – both the state is legitimate and the power is legitimate”

            “Invited at the Elysee the 5th of September 2011, S.B. Bechara Boutros Rai, Maronite Patriarch of Antioch and the entire Middle-East (the head of the most important Church in the Middle-East that is attached to Rome) heard that France and its allies will soon intervene militarily in Syria to establish the Muslim Brothers as the leaders of the country. The Christians of the Orient, who would lose their place in society, would then have to prepare themselves for the exodus and could find refuge in Europe.”

            How convenient.

          • HebAlba

            Rense.com says that if you Google “Tzipora Menache” you will find a supposed informational site which will insert a virus on your computer if you click on it. So, DO NOT SEARCH FOR TZIPORA MENACHE ON THE WEB!!! This story is, for certain, a hoax put out by Jews to encourage people who dislike Israel and its actions in Gaza to Google this name and thus pick up a virus.

            Why should I be interested in Phoenician?

            The most notorious characteristic of Phoenician religion was the practice of child sacrifice.
            The practice of child sacrifice was commonplace in the Phoenician cities all over the Levant.

            It abounds with many kinds of fanatics in the Arab world, and it is inevitable because they are fatalists.

            All those sites are the face of the Middle East and what happens in the Middle East allways lives political waves in the EU – whether we like it or not.

            We will never understand them, and they will all ways have difficulties to be a part of our society because they refuse to abandon their ‘traditions’ like the importance of honor of the family – it goes so far that it ends with honor killings. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c50970b1c73ca0d17dee4bd0c7c52d8f153590d6b485122570324918301c559b.jpg

            As usual, you’re regurgitating silly idiocies to demonize present-day Lebanon. There never was a Phoenician religion nor were there Phoenician cities all over the Levant.

            There is as yet no evidence of child sacrifice in the Carthaginian homeland, the cities of Phoenicia (Lebanon) proper, where far less excavation has been done.

            Child sacrifices was practiced in ancient Israel with the worship of Moloch (aka Tophet).

            Evidence concerning Moloch worship in ancient Israel is found in the legal, as well as in the historical and prophetic literature of the Bible.

    Might as well get the next Lebanon/Israel war started right now. It will be less suffering for Lebanese under the Islamic Sate of Iran and its Hezbollah thugs.
