Former minister Wiam Wahhab said that the situation in Lebanon is extremely dangerous and if things continue this way president Michel Suleiman will be the last president of the republic and the current government will be the last , adding that his statements are based on solid information.
He added:” We may have had our differences with ( former PM ) Rafik Hariri , but we have to admit that he was opposed to extremism and sent many Sunni Muslims to overseas universities to keep them away from extremism. This is something Saad Hariri did not do and will be paying a hefty price for the direction he has chosen. ”
Wahab added: ” Former Finance minister Mohammad Shatah has already presented a plan to Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea on dividing Lebanon into a federation .”
According to analysts Wahab , who is a stanch ally of the Syrian regime and Hezbollah is nervous about what is happening in Syria and the role the Sunni extremists will be playing there and in Lebanon.
The United Nations says more than 5,000 people have been killed in the Syrian unrest, which president Bashar al Assad blames on armed “terrorists”.
