Worried Lebanese

thought crumbs on lebanese and middle eastern politics

Pretty noose

Posted by worriedlebanese on 26/03/2007

I open the Orient-Le Jour today for the first time in 10 days. And unsurprisingly, nothing new. Same people saying the same things. Except I noticed two quotes mentioning nooses: Geagea on the opposition (they want to tie a noose around our neck), Jumblatt on Hariri’s assassins (the rope is tightening around their necks).
The effect is certainly dramatic and it does show that the “game” is a deadly one. It interwines two different issues: (1) the participation of Shiites and Christian leaders as equal partners on a common program with the Sunni and Druze leadership (2) the legal prosecution of Assad regime.
Putting it that way could seem quite biased, but how can one state the interwining otherwise?
