Al Anbaa: Another Jumblatt political U-Turn !

Share:

Kuwaiti newspaper al Anbaa quoted observers as saying that the recent statements by PSP leader MP Walid Jumblatt indicate that he is in the process of another U turn.

Although the new U Turn may not be in the direction of March 14 it will be a move away from March 8.

The observers revealed that Jumblatt has accelerated the process of his new U-turn after returning from Qatar.

Jumblatt , who was elected by March 14 voters during the 2009 elections officially defected to the Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah led alliance last January, making them the new majority.

The Iranian and Syrian backed Hezbollah brought down PM Saad Hariri’s government on January 12 over the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) imminent indictment which is widely expected to implicate Hezbollah members in the assassination of former PM Rafik Hariri in 2005.

Lebanon has been run by a caretaker government since last January. Nagib Mikati was appointed in January as the PM designate with the backing of the Hezbollah led-March 8 alliance, MPs Jumblatt and Mohammad Safadi . March 14 leaders have repeatedly said that intimidation from Hezbollah’s weapons helped secure the parliamentary majority for Mikati’s nomination.

A dispute over the Interior Ministry portfolio between President Michel Suleiman and MP Michel Aoun was blamed for the delay in the formation of a new cabinet headed by Mikati.

According to analysts Hezbollah is hiding behind Aoun’s demands for the ministries of Interior , Communications and justice in order to have full control of Lebanon’s security when STL indictments are issued and made public

Jumblatt was quoted last Friday in the Al-Akhbar newspaper as saying that Hezbollah “does not want to form a new cabinet,” and that Hezbollah is using Change and Reform bloc leader MP Michel Aoun as a façade to delay cabinet formation”. Jumblatt confirmed that the quote was accurate.

    I swear I used to like this guy (not that I hate him now), but he cracks me up. He is like that song by I think Sabah, Habibi bi hibil tish, w 3a rawshe bi 2elle mesh. So wherever the wind is blowing, he goes with it. He is hilarious & sometimes I think he is majnoon 🙂

    It all depends on what Jumblat is smoking and how much he has. When Jumblat is low on his hash stash he get close to HA knowing they control the drug trade in Lebanon and when he is low on cash he gets close to Harriri knowing the 1 million dollars a year (even though less than the 3 mil harriri sr gave him) harriri gives him is better than nothing.

    I really hope I can live to see the day when Jumblat shaves, wears a suit and looks like he is sober.

    In the 80s the Morabitoon a Sunni group was threatened by Berri (Harakit Amal). Berri demanded the Sunni residents in Beirut pay him a tax for using the roads in and out of Beirut and for using the port witch they had control over. This order came from Syria because the Morabitoon refused to get involved in the Civil war and had a good relationship with the LF and Kataib.

    Jumblat had broke off his alliance with Berri after Berri attacked the Palestinian camps and was trying to control them. PSP and Amal fought a very bloody war but Amal was winning. Morabitoon were asked if they wanted to join the fight and take control of all Beirut (west beirut) and were hailed by Jumblat as his saviors. Once the Morabtoon joined the fight and had expelled Amal from Beirut Jumblat went to Syria and was Ordered to forgive and forget the past with Berri and retake Beirut from the Morabitoon. He agreed and was given 5000 Syrian SF troops to put under his command. Gorge Hawi who was with jumblat and was the head of the communist party in Lebanon said that Jumblat was saying he would never turn on the Morabitoon even after he left the meeting in Syria but once he was back in Beirut he stopped answering his calls and went to war with them.

    At the time the Druz were outraged at him because the PSP was formed to protect the Palestinians and was created by Kamal Jumblat and 5 others who were all Sunni and Christian. They also said they would never forgive him but then they did.

    The problem is not Jumblat but it the druz that keep voting for him just like the problem in lebanon is our fault because we keep these fools in power.
