Aoun wants to be the president


aoun no wayFree Patriotic Movement ( FPM) leader MP Michel Aoun on Wednesday confirmed that there is a serious possibility that he will run for president as the Lebanese presidential election period is set to begin in late March ahead of President Michel Suleiman’s term expiry on May 25, Aoun said in an interview with Al-Hadath television on Wednesday.

He also hinted that he would take an independent political line from Hezbollah as the presidential election draws near, saying, “When Israel targeted Hezbollah, I supported them, and when Syria came after National Struggle Front leader MP Walid Jumblatt and MP Marwan Hamadeh, I supported them, but now I want to support myself.”

local media reports said Aoun’s meeting last month with former Prime Minister Saad Hariri in Rome predicted that he could be a candidate for the presidency.

Aoun called on all foreign forces to withdraw from Syria, but tried to clarify Hezbollah’s role in Syria

“All forces must withdraw from Syria and leave the Syrian people alone,” he said adding “Hezbollah might have intervened in Syria to protect the Syrian regime or to protect itself,”

Aoun also said that he “has not seen Iranian militants in Syria.” He did not clarify how he reached this conclusion about Iran’s role.

Aoun said his alliance with Hezbollah, which was agreed in a 2006 memorandum of understanding, was necessary to guarantee Lebanon’s stability.

Despite defending his ties with Shiite party, Aoun said that he “paid for the price of his alliance with Hezbollah, especially concerning the presidency.”

He also touched on the disputed issue of the ‘resistance’, saying a strong Army would eliminate the need for Hezbollah.

“We want arms for the military that could represent deterrence to Israel if we wanted to eliminate the resistance,” said Aoun, adding that such a plan could take years.

This is not the first time that Aoun hints that he is ready to dump Hezbollah.

Aoun told former US Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman in 2007 that he was willing to dissolve his 2006 Memorandum of Understanding with Hezbollah if he receives a better offer, a classified US embassy cable that was leaked by WikiLeaks revealed.

Many analysts in Lebanon blame Aoun’s MOU with Hezbollah for Lebanon’s problems; Most of the problems in Lebanon started after the MOU: The 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel that devastated the whole country , the 2006 -2008 occupation of downtown Beirut by Hezbollah and its allies to bring down the government , the May 2008 occupation of west Beirut by Hezbollah against the Sunnis and the coup against the Hariri government in January 2011. The analysts claim that Aoun who was dreaming of using Hezbollah to become the president of Lebanon was used by Hezbollah as a Christian cover.

    How can an idiot and ignorant person like him say this, ” I will suport myself . He is so idiot , that he doesn’t see his faith being like Harriri if he don’t follow hizbullah’s order like a dog.

    He is still dreaming of the Presidency this lunatic. He is in his late 70s and loosing his mind from time to time, on the verge of having alzeihmers and wants to be a President. This coward traitor who let his soldiers fight alone the syrian army and die by the hundreds while hefled and hid in the French embassy….. Let him dream…..If it was not of the martyrdom of Rafik Hariri he would still be in France by now.

    First, he has no chance. It is too late for Aoun to position himself as a “consensus” president. Too much blood, betrayals, changing course, fence-jumping for anyone to forgive and forget him. Also, even those who initially admired his positions of principle, have by now realized he is just another dikkanji in the Lebanese bazaar. His greatest “reform and change” was to create his own political farm (nephews, sons-in-law, etc.) pushing Gibran Bassil (who has yet to win a single election) into political positions. Aoun is damaged goods. If the Lebanese really want to move their country forward, they should look for young, progressive, educated professionals with no ties to the political oligarchy of the same old dinosaurs from feudal families. Think of judges (Mallat), professional bankers (Salame) and others with credentials of intelligence and professional integrity, and no blood on their hands. If the Lebanese are unable to conceive of such a change in their heads first, then implement it on the ground, then they have no claims to being a modern democracy.

            Good evening Geo, I applaud you and Butru on the manor of which both of you conducted yourself, and I have to admit that Butru surprised me with the speed at which He came along to hearing you out and then engaging you in a productive and civilized way.
            I think that most people that participate on yaliban , do so to express a point of view,and to promote a set of pre determined political and religious positions. That makes it hard for them to switch from promoting to listening.
            It takes lots of humility to learn to listen,and most of us lack that kind of modesty and humility because we are all caught up in the emotional part of issues. Everyone wants to be a victim,everyone wants to be innocent,and every one is in denial about the fears that others have.
            That being said, I’m still hopeful that some of us can learn to listen as much as talk. I’m also hopeful that civility and respect can become part of this culture.
            I believe that people can celebrate their diversity and debate their differences without engaging in the politics of personal attacks.It takes some commitment and personal decision to respect others as they discuss their difference.

            Very well said, what Impressed me the most about him is that he asked a question instead of guessing and making a conclusive judgement. I know I come a cross as confusing as to where I stand and my ability to be friendly with people on all sides but again the exchange speaks for itself and I give the credit to Btru and pretty much don’t need to settle for anything less if others wish to engage.

            You want to be calm and friendly with those who kill
            indiscriminately and those who support them that is your choice. I already told
            you what I think of your conciliatory methods towards those who live by the
            fire and the sword. There will not be a space where they will utter their lies
            without me being right behind them to return the insult many folds.

            It is pleasers and appeasers like yourself (go ahead and
            change your name to that if you want) that allowed them to be more and more
            arrogant to the point they think they own the world and dictate their dirty methods
            to millions unanswered.

            You want to stay on the fence that is your problem. I’m here
            to make sure that they know that the war has started and that they will now taste
            its bitterness.

            Look at the pictures of the 20 people who died in front of Phoenicia.
            Look at Tueini’s photo. Look at Kassir’s eyes… they all stare back at you and
            scream SHAME!

          64. Mekenseh, I really don’t want to be upset with you but I am frustrated that this is a public venue and I am limited in what I can say without exposing so much that should be privelaged and earned based on trust if you and I were to have a face to face conversation.
            Please know that you are 100% wrong in how you precieve me, I know I am very confusing but I assure you that I do answer questions truthfully everytime!! I do lie but only to my mother and to no one else EVER!!
            I don’t like to upset people or be upset with them and since this s the second almost carbon copy message I get from you I will sincerely reveal publicly what I can but will not subject myself to casting my pearls before swines who simply come here as spectators and not progressive minded in exercising what they preach.
            you bring up tueini, his father was my mothers childhood friend and she was a well known in promoting his campaign till we immigrated. as for his son who was assassinated, My fathers remains are buried almost next to him .
            I am not muslim, I am not pro Hezbollah, I am not pro extremists from any religion, I am not pro war, a child of civil war like most of us would only be an idiot to recommend or relive the exercise that proved lose lose for all Lebanese. Nothing can ever be solved by war that can not be solved by dialogue.
            you recommended Christianity and being someone who inly takes advice from people that are where I want to be as a person, I am a Christian that subscribes to early Christian examples and not the counterfit many that forgot what the good news was all about and that Jesus blood was spilled on behalf of all sinners the ones you aree with and the ones you don’t so to the extent that I a truly NOT hypocrite I kicked down the fence you think I am sitting on and went on a mission to shed my contempt to those I once hated because of the civil war and decided to practice true Christianity by being a NON VIOLENT person that truly is able to befriend people for who they are as a person and not that of political views.
            Finally I am friends with the prophetttt and I have friends who are sunni and the mission continues to meet and interact with sincere people based on human unity and not political or sectarian one. I have had many conversations with the prophet and over a 3 year friendship not once did we ever discuss politics or religion, all we ever talk is about family issues that we all face and we try to encourage one another as any friend would.
            I hope this is helpful, I will gladly answer any thing I may have missed that you are not sure about.

          65. I don’t why you feel you need to justify yourself to this clown. Your a very good man Geo, and I mean that brother. They must either respect you for who you are, or they can all go and get themselves well and truly F##ked These types of people love to argue and when they disagree with something you have to say, they scream like little child who has lost his/hers lolly pop. To hell with all of them. They are irrelevant to you and to the people who care about. And that’s all you should be concerned with, the people who love and respect you irrespective of what religion you are or political views you have. And make no mistake Geo, many people on this blog have a lot of time for you. Especially me.

          66. Thanks Farq, You are right on many accounts but I really feel obligated to make it clear that if I am friendly to anyone it is not based on political agreement but compatibility for interaction based on mutual respect and humor :):) either way I said it before I am limited time offer and the spring season starts soon and with all the storms many birds fall out of nests and I will spend more time where I can make a difference in someones life. fore the most part this is where people come to find out what they hate about you and for the most part are too shallow to look deep or believe anything good if it landed on their head lol.
            Just curious what time zone are you in , I failed geography so I have no Idea how it is that all the aussies are here 24/7 lol

          67. Everthing you have said is the reason why you are at peace with yourself the they have so much hate for others and themselves.
            Now as for the Aussies being here 24/7, What do you think we are, lazy like the Yanks. lol

            Geo, I used to be like you, a person who believed that a pencil and a paper, calm and respectful words will get things resolved. Only I discovered that this applies to civilized people… When you try to apply it to those bajams they threaten you and wont hesitate to hurt or even kill you and whoever is unlucky enough to be around you.
            After hearing Jubran Tueini saying that the Mitsubishi van came from Dahyeh and later die for saying this I cut all relations with any Hezbollah follower: friends and acquaintances. It’s one thing to have different political views, it’s another when one supports criminals and yes TERRORISTS! I had no problem Hezbollah running traffic rings and criminal gangs, that’s Lebanon and many if not all do the same but mass killing is where I draw a line and since then haven’t gone back from this line and encourage every sane person to do the same. They can’t blow 20 people one day, wake up the next with appeasing words and expect that I’m going to forgive and forget only so that they can do it again and again – which is exactly what they did, do and will again as long as people like you are ready to sit back with them.
            I’ll say it again your methods are simply shameful to my eyes, to the eyes of the people who died simply for being at the wrong place, to the eyes of those who died for revealing the truth and to the living families of those victims.
            This is not a blemish on the legal system it’s a blemish on those who still refuse to see that they’re sharing a cup of coffee with a terrorist accomplice!
            The time has come to cut “diplomatic” relations since what they do is use this “diplomacy” to perpetrate their bloody methods. Every time someone disagrees with them they threaten of civil violence, send their black shirts on the streets and bully people into silence and obedience. Not anymore!
            Today they want people to believe that the demons takfiris are the biggest threat to their existence I tell them those takfiris are toy soldiers compared to the men of reason that are ready to fight them, who are fighting them already and we’ll see who will be the “ghaliboun” in the end. They can look back in history and see that the likes of them NEVER win should the wars last hundreds of years.
            I’d be happy if you join for you seem to be a reasonable person but at the end you decide how you position yourself with your own consciousness. Rational people are not always the most courageous, in fact they tend to find the right justifications for not taking action. While I am a man of Words through my education somewhere in my genes shout barbarians on wild horses who burned cities from one ocean to another. These unknown ancestors of mine gave me the right tools to fight when my peaceful and respectful words do not echo. And those you chose to befriend will keep hearing from me and WILL taste my rage! It’s too late for niceties and “tobyid tanajir”. The time now is to fight and put an end to their arrogance!

          70. Mekenseh, you already made judgment and were very selective in what you read in my reply, not worth continuing, a s you are one of the many that subscribe to IF YOU ARE NOT WITH US YOU ARE AGAINST US, I get this from all sides of the issues and I repeat I ONLY TAKE ADVICE FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE WHERE I WANT TO BE!!!

            Rage and violence against anyone is no christian quality, you are in no position to ever recommend or discuss christianity as you are not familiar with your bible. if you were you would realize that just before Jesus was killed people felt oppressed by the occupying romans and similar injustice s that we see today yet in the underground there was swords and weapons being secretly manufactured by those who resented Jesus for not using his powers and influence to overthrow the romans, you certainly fit with those groups with your taste for rage and your desire for violence and totally make it not worth while to continue further.

          71. MekensehParty Avatar

            Right because it is me who blew Hariri and 19 other people.
            Yet you don’t seem to have any problem befriending such people! Stop closing
            your eyes with your own hands! I never gave you religious lessons, I told you
            who inspire! I added that I’m not looking for you to convert I’m the last
            person on earth to call himself a Christian but I know that Jesus himself was a
            great person who CLIMBED on the cross not for the bible or what follows but as a PERSON – A HUMAN BEING to show the rest how to live. I never said
            Christianity is the solution, I showed the example of Jesus the man and not the
            Jesus that other men sanctified!
            At this point where the enemy has killed, blew people up, proved that it is
            “my way or the highway” I find it surprising that you accept their methods and not mine just because their words are flowery!
            Rage, violence and wars are not a bad thing when they are directed at those who started rage and violence. I did not wake up one day and said I hate Hezbollah and its followers out of nowhere. I saw them kill and blow people and only after being sure it was them who did my rage evolved to a boiling point.
            You got it backward, you are blaming a father whose son has been blown to
            pieces for being enraged totally forgiving the killer! What kind of logic is

          72. MekensehParty Avatar

            PS: it was not the Romans at all that Jesus was fighting but the Jewish way of life and their unjust and wrong interpretation of the laws. Romans were never Jesus’ enemy nor were they the ones who sentenced him to the cross it was the masses of Jerusalem who preferred to free Barabas instead of Jesus while the Romans “washed their hands” of that decision.
            You better revise your bible…

          73. No need to revise the copy, what you say is correct however there was contempt towards the romans too, either way let me say that most of us have lived abroad for decades now and I am not sure that the current commentators here are actual involved killers, yes they may support or agree with one group or the other that are guilty of killings going on but I am certain that I am not exchanging with active killers .

            I have no way of proving it but yes I think that the prime suspect in all the killings that you mention including Harriri are hezbollha and syria, their lack of cooperation and circumventing with the investigation is a very bad sign too, their use of Allah in their slogan is offensive, I am not a fan of the organization . Any comment that I like and has a hint of pro hezbollah. pro any sectarian does not get a like from me,,, do some research it is public info.

            What I do like about Farq and the prophettttt is that they know intimately how I feel about Hezbollah and yet they maintain their friendship and applaud my stand in being able to exchange with others they dont agree with, they respect my stance and never try to pursuade or insult me otherwise. upon my firs meet with the prophetttt he was not offended that my pilot and some of my closest friends I introduced him to were jewish people and I later learn that some of his close friends are also jewish. 5th at one point mentioned that my friendships are unlikely and yes most everything about me is unlikely just as earlier christians did not fit in I say the less I fit with sectarian violence and madness the better I sleep at night.

            the status quo that most resort to for a solution or a stance is far more inferior as an alternative to where I stand with those around me. nice try but you are not too convincing.

          74. MekensehParty Avatar

            Geo why are you turning in circles when it’s very clear to you it seems who’s behind massacre after massacre, terrorist attacks against Lebanese over and over. Of course they’re friends with Jewish people, they only insult them on TV and send them secret messages of appeasement through Russian diplomats… Who cares who likes or respect you, the price is higher, the price is human values. You can be friend with prophet as much as you want, I know he’s not a killer (at least for the past 11 years) and visit back and forth and meet each other’s friends and and… deep inside you know that this person does not share your values and that’s why you never discuss politics or religion with him even though the subject at hand is not politics I repeat, nor is it religion! It’s mass murder! and there lies the big difference, I can argue with a tea partier all day – that’s politics, I won’t argue with someone who’s a hitler fan because that’s insanity. As I told a person very dear to me in Lebanon: don’t wait till they blow you or a beloved one to open your eyes and stop defending them. Because they will. And one week later they blew a bomb in an Antelias parking lot. I tell you the same and hope it never ever happens. Don’t wait till they hurt a close person to you to recognize what you’ve always knew, that people who speak with bombs and those who justify them cannot be trusted.

        But are you a man? I don’t mean the Macho variety; just the basic biological kind. Because
        even the “advanced” US can’t fathom the idea of a female president (you know the cowboys are 20 years behind the Phillipines, Sri Lanka, India, Israel, etc. on this subject); In Lebanon we’re probably 100 years away from having a normal man as president, let alone a woman. So, please resubmit your application (3 copies, all in Arabic), make sure you have the moukhtar sign it, have it translated into Farsi by a certified translator who mus be accredited by Hezbollah, along with two photos signed by your mother and your parish priest, run it by General Security along with 5 copies of the first three pages of your blue (not red) passport, take the bosta to your ancestral village, and take 10,005 dollars (10K is the fee, and $5 is the bribe) with you.

Brother i just have this to say….it was aoun who was against the taif and rightly so because the other 2 parties after doing everything they did copped a payout by the saudis to agree to it and since then have weakened the presidency so they only have themselves to blame….It was aoun who fought the syrian occupation while the other 2 parties stood and watched and actually helped them. Anything else is denial. Aoun will be president and hariri will come back as pm thats why both are relatively quiet now and thats lebanese politics 101.

          12. Cookie, she is talented, Thank you, but she is a troubled person that decent people should cease and desist harassing if they truly feel that they are in a better state and have morals, whether you believe in karma or reaping what you sow, all of us are subject to ramifications in how we treat others… especially those who are a product of abuse, think about it Cookie and I say the same to Mal.

            “but she is a troubled person”.. yeah, you got that right… she won’t seek help on her own so perhaps she needs to be guided into getting the help that she needs.

            Makes me really laugh. Any how, why would any one want to bash you??? You’re witty, intelligent… Not everyone needs to think 100% alike to interact. We can learn a lot from others, but not by Bashing???

    This is news??? Oh well, I think the headline should be more along the lines of ‘Aoun Would Dump Hezbollah for the Presidency’ .

  14. �Those who spend (freely) whether in prosperity or in adversity; who restrain their anger and pardon men; And Allah loves those who do good. (Qur’an, 3: 134)

    Imam Ja�far al-Sadiq (a) said: “Anger is the key (that opens the door) to all kinds of vices.”� [Al‑Kulayni, al‑Kafi, vol. 2, p. 303, hadith # 3]

    It is narrated from Imam al‑Sadiq (a) that he heard his father Imam al‑Baqir (a), as saying: “A bedouin came to the Prophet (s) and said: `I live in the desert. Teach me the essence of wisdom.’ Thereupon the Prophet (s) said to him: `I command you not to get angry’. After repeating his question thrice (and hearing the same reply from the Prophet every time) the bedouin said to himself: `After this I will not ask any question, since the Apostle of God (s) does not command anything but good’.” Imam al‑Sadiq (a) says: “My father used to say, `Is there any�thing more violent than anger? Verily, a man gets angry and kills someone whose blood has been forbidden by God, or slanders a married woman’.”[Al‑Kulayni, al‑Kafi, vol. 2, p. 303, hadith # 4]

    Reality of Anger

    Anger is a psychological state that results from inner agitation and desire for revenge. And when this agitation becomes more violent, it intensifies the fire of anger. A violent commotion engulfs ones brain on account of which the mind and the intellect lose control and become powerless. At that time, the inner state of a person resembles a cave where fire has broken out, filling it with flames and suffocating clouds of smoke that leap out of its mouth with intense heat and a fiery howl. When that happens, it becomes extremely difficult to pacify such a person and to extinguish the fire of his wrath; whatever is thrown in it to cool it down becomes a part of it, adding to its intensity. It is for this reason that such a person becomes blind and deaf to guidance and good etiquettes. In such a condition, all such efforts as counsel, advice, and exhortation fail to appease the person. The more one tries to pacify it through humble requests and efforts, the more violent it becomes until the angry person physically harms

      “slanders a married woman’.”
      Not trying to give u a hard time, u know I like u more than most on here. But does that mean slandering a unmarried woman isn’t as bad?

      1. I can understand your frustration, and unfortunately our current system does not have a law to deal with these offenders. But we must not take the bait and lower ourselves . We must not sit in the company of these people , even if you say nothing. In this environment it is best not to read some peoples shameful comments, and if you do , we must counter with something positive, here are the rulings for slander,
        Those who slander against chaste, innocent, believing women [and then neither repent for their slander nor correct their behavior], shall indeed be cursed in this world as well as the hereafter. For them shall be a grievous punishment. (SOURCE)

        Therefore, verse 24:23 is understood to refer to those sinners who commit Al-Qadhf and do not repent from it. It is not mentioned in the verse since it is already mentioned throughout the Qur’an, including the same Surah.

        3. Before completing this discussion, it is also important to mention the position of repentance in Islamic law. The scholars have agreed that if someone commits a sin, it is better for them to repent before it is brought into the legal system, so that they may avoid the punishment. As Shaykh Muhammad Iqbal An-Nadvi mentions:

        With regards to the sinner who repents, they may be pardoned if their repentance occurs before the case enters the legal procdure. After that, it must be dealt with according to the legal system.

        Likewise, Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih Al-Munajjid, a prominent Islamic scholar and author in Saudi Arabia, writes:

        The offenses which the sultan (Muslim ruler) hears of are the ones for which the hudood punishments must be carried out. As for those of which he does not hear, then it is better to repent from them and to conceal oneself with the concealment of Allaah. (SOURCE)

        The reason behind this ruling is obvious. When a case is submitted to the legal system, it is no longer private. Once it becomes public, it becomes a societal issue, and the danger of the sin spreading is greater if it is not dealt with. Therefore, anyone judged under the Islamic legal system can no longer be pardoned since their sin has become public. Once they are punished for their sin, the scholars are agreed that the sinner has been expiated for the sin, and thus purified. The punishment in this life will remove their punishment that they would have experienced in the next life.

          So … trying to work on the ‘obvious’ logic here … it’s ok for the accused (guilty or otherwise) to sit in a jail repenting for a few years (perhaps with some added torture thrown in – at least bad food) before a case hits the ‘private court’ OF the uber-religious – and then there’s no guarantee that the head won’t be chopped off because of ‘repenting’ – but not having to do the ‘showing’ of justice to the people is better because, after all, Allah is up there judging anyway. Right?
          (showing the head-chopping is good because it reminds everyone of their fate)
          And this brings peace and forgiveness from the victims and the suffering families of anything (shredded children or acid in the face or loss of a lifetime-gold-collection) because at least someone was ‘tried’ by the mysterious system (with maybe a little blood money thrown in) – sanctified by ‘judges’ who’s words and deliberations are never heard.
          And then, because this ‘justice’ was served on earth by those who we are supposed to believe are always pure and incorruptible (they ‘obviously’ translate all the godly words correctly), then All is OK with Allah (ultimate ruler) or at least the Sultan who the same ‘judges’ picked to be ‘the man’ making the rules within the confines of the same ‘works-well’ system. And the ‘bad guy’ is absolved and has a nice ‘forever’ in heavenly splendour with maybe some women thrown in for fun – while the victims must suffer onwards on earth (and maybe in heaven because we all have some ‘sin’ going on all the time even in the thoughts) until something else ends it for them … at which time Allah may decide to make them suffer more because they probably did something naughty over the years.
          Although, they will undoubtably again hear the phrase ‘Repent, Ye Sinners’, while some guy roasts them over a fire forever and ever – Ameen Man.

          Well, I guess I begin the see the benefits of this thinking.
          I think a little self-flagellation could be beneficial, while I shout out: ‘I REPENT’.

    Maybe one day we can infect this site with the best of our nature .
