Tuesday, May 13, 2014. Because nuclear superpowers vetoes, the United Nations are unable to protect civilians from chemical bombs.
The UN does not inspire confidence. It demonstrates every day that it is not up to the responsibilities of managing the global justice and to protect innocent people. The human rights are violated throughout every country by dictators. The superpowers look at the world through their financial interests.
The Arab League is worse than the UN. First, it is not managed to defend the Arab peoples. Then it has nor financial means, nor military or administrative capabilities.
And locally, in Syria, the dominant leaders with money and the dictatorship of Bashar al-Assad commit crimes and make propaganda accusing the revolutionaries to commit murders. Neutral expertise’s investigations are rare but sufficient to establish criminal liability of Bashar regime in the first place.
Powerful Western democracies are showing loose. They have abandoned the duty to intervene to protect people, even when there are crimes by chemical bombs.
The Lebanese people is morally responsible for not having responded correctly, first to prevent Hezbollah terrorists to go and kill people in Syria, then, secondly, for not helping the Syrian revolution claiming freedom and democracy.

Human Rights Watch says 'strong evidence' Syria regime used chlorine gas, May 13, 2014
BEIRUT: Evidence "strongly suggests" Syria's government has used chlorine gas on three towns in mid-April in violation of the chemical weapons treaty Damascus joined last year, Human Rights Watch said Tuesday.
"Evidence strongly suggests that Syrian government helicopters dropped barrel bombs embedded with cylinders of chlorine gas on three towns in northern Syria in mid-April 2014," HRW said.
The New York-based group cited interviews with witnesses and medical personnel, video of the attacks and photographs of the remnants of barrel bombs.
Doctors who treated victims said at least 11 people were killed in the attacks and "symptoms consistent with exposure to chlorine" were seen in nearly 500 people, the watchdog reported.
It documented attacks on the towns of Kafr Zita in central Hama on April 11 and 18, Al-Temana in Idlib on April 13 and 18 and Telmans also in Idlib province on April 21.
All three are areas under rebel control
Opposition sources have claimed several government attacks using chlorine gas, and Syrian state television acknowledged one such attack in Kafr Zita but blamed it on the jihadist Al-Nusra Front.
But opposition activists say the chlorine is delivered by barrel bombs dropped from helicopters, which only the government possesses.
HRW said video of barrel bomb remnants at the site of the attacks showed canisters with the code CL2 -- the symbol for chlorine gas.
The group acknowledged it could not "independently confirm" that the chlorine gas cylinders caught on film were packed in barrel embedded in the barrel bombs that were dropped from helicopters."
But it said that it was unlikely the footage was staged or that the chlorine gas was added to the barrel bombs, citing symptoms reported by doctors and witnesses "consistent with exposure to chlorine".
"Syria's apparent use of chlorine gas as a weapon -- not to mention targeting of civilians -- is a plain violation of international law," said HRW deputy Middle East and North Africa director Nadim Houry.
"This is one more reason for the UN Security Council to refer the situation in Syria to the International Criminal Court."
Syria joined the Chemical Weapons Convention last year as part of a deal to surrender its chemical weapons arsenal after it was accused of a sarin attack in the suburbs of Damascus.
Possessing chlorine is not a violation of the convention, but using the gas as a weapon is, and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons watchdog has said it will send a team to Syria to investigate the chlorine attack claims.
Tuesday, May 13, 2014. Israel PM, OLMERT sentenced.
How it is demoralizing to see, that important personalities can go to jail for any errors or any financial temptation. The Arab world and Lebanon are run by corrupt and untouchable political leaders for decades. Can we hope one day to see Lebanese politicians in the tribunals for corruptions ?

Tuesday, May 20, 2014. Eight Lebanese soldiers wounded in Tripoli, it is not a coincidence. The mafia political leaders, guilty of crimes, are quiet in their palaces and they send the poor soldiers to get snipe by henchmen of small neighborhoods. This is the period of blackmail and threats in the struggle for power by our shabby little dictators.

Tuesday, May 20, 2014. The Future Movement announced the continuation of Samir Geagea as the presidential candidate in the fifth step of the votes in parliament.
This is a minimum we can do after so unsupportable bids, for nine years, by Hezbollah and Bashar AL-ASSAD terrorist threats. The defense and respect for the Constitution time cannot be delayed if we want a democratic Lebanon respectful of human rights.

Future bloc: Geagea our candidate
The Future bloc reiterated in a statement Tuesday that Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea was the group's candidate for the presidential election and called on the rival March 8 camp to announce their own contender.
The bloc added that "obstructing the presidential election would result in void that can tarnish the image of Lebanon and the image of its stability".
Monday, May 26, 2014. Lebanon Cancer is Hezbollah and Hasan Nasrallah racist and warlike doctrine.
Hasan persists in its racist Arabist Islamist extremist theories, believing that there will be no peace in Lebanon as long as Israel exists and that is with his militia the only solution to deter Israeli attacks.
He therefore makes believe that his leadership as Arabic Islamist dominant Shiite leader in the Arab and Islamic world is essential for the glory of Arabs and for safety of Arabic and Islamic countries against Israel.
He confirms that he no longer needs to be covered by the Lebanese state and claims that through his militia Lebanon is protected.
However, the majority of the Lebanese people are not following its extremist racist doctrine that puts Lebanon in constant danger and the Lebanese economy in perpetual recession.
In addition, we have a peaceful and fair approach that allows security of Lebanon and the Middle East peace without war and racist destructive warrior culture.
Here is our simple doctrine : "I work to delay death and improve the quality of life of every human being among all peoples > .
Respecting everybody human rights, peaceful solutions can be constructed so that all the peoples of the Middle East can live in peace.
It means respecting the rights of minorities in the Middle East, including Jews, Christians, Kurds, Alawites , Druzes , Sunnis and Shiites, not to forget modern secular Democrats. The promotion of democracy is essential. This is disturbing hegemonic projects of some tyrannical dictators who want to preserve their dreamed powers like Hasan Nasrallah and Bashar Alassad.
Oppressing the people by massacres, threats, terrorism, dictators want to make believe they are winners worshiped by their peoples. They are simply criminals.
Palestinians and Jews can live in peace in two contiguous respectful states.
Lebanese with exact parity between Christians and Muslims can live together in real peace and prosperity, in a secular democratic country.
Ethnic groups in the Middle East can organize democracies and federations, more or less independent. The goal is the human rights away from dreams of dictators indoctrinated to their utopian inhuman and racist moron glories.
Our democratic pacific modern times’ doctrine brings human rights for Shiites as well as the others, who are victims of brainwashing propaganda being made by the Syrian regime, Hezbollah and Iran. Our doctrine brings peace to Lebanon, Middle East and the entire world.

Nasrallah urges swift presidential election May 25, 2014 06:40 PM (Last updated: May 25, 2014 08:36 PM) By Dana Khraiche

BEIRUT: Hezbollah Chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah Sunday urged rival groups to resolve the presidential deadlock in the shortest time possible, adding that his group sought a president who would back, rather than abandon, the resistance.
“What is important is to exert all efforts to shorten the period of time [in vacuum] and have an elected president as soon as possible, rather than observe and wait for regional developments,” he added.
The Hezbollah chief also spoke about negotiations between Free Patriotic Movement leader Michel Aoun and head of the Future Movement former PM Saad Hariri, saying Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea’s candidacy was aimed primarily at obstructing Aoun’s chance of becoming president.
“This challenging candidacy was only announced to cut short another candidacy ... because we and they know that the latter [Geagea] did not have a chance of reaching the post,” Nasrallah said.
He also accused his rivals in the March 14 coalition of seeking to extend Sleiman’s term.
Nasrallah, whose ties with Sleiman deteriorated in recent months over the former president’s opposition to Hezbollah’s involvement in Syria, also said his group sought a president who would not backstab the resistance.
“We don’t want a president to protect the resistance. The resistance in Lebanon is the one that protects the state, the people and the sovereignty,” he said.
“We want a president that does not conspire against us, [does] not backstab us, and remains solid on their position to support the resistance ... that’s not a difficult condition,” Nasrallah added.
Nasrallah also touched on the tripartite formula of the “Army, the people and the resistance,” which has come under scrutiny from the party’s critics in light of Hezbollah’s military presence in Syria.
“I want to affirm here the policy of deterrence ... as the only means capable of protecting Lebanon, its land, people, state and resources,” he said.
“As long as there is an imbalance of power [between Lebanon] and the enemy, this will remain the only available strategy ... and no one has ever offered a serious [alternative] strategy to achieve that balance,” he added.
Sleiman had presented a national defense strategy in 2012 that would have incorporated Hezbollah’s arms in the Lebanese Army, which would remain under the state’s command. The National Dialogue session which was scheduled to discuss Sleiman’s proposal was boycotted by Hezbollah in protest of the former president’s stance on the resistance.
He also reiterated that the resistance maintained its deterrence force against Israel despite the conflict in Syria, saying: “Despite developments in the region particularly in Syria ... the resistance is working day and night to develop and improve its deterrence force which is what worries the enemy.”
During his speech commemorating the withdrawal of the Israeli Army from south Lebanon in 2000, Nasrallah said that Syria's regime and the "resistance axis" will emerge victorious in the Syrian conflict.
" Syria will triumph and the resistance axis will triumph," he said, speaking two weeks ahead of the June 3 presidential election in Syria.
Thousands of Hezbollah fighters are backing the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad against rebel groups.
Nasrallah hailed Syria as “the heart of Arabism,” adding that Lebanon’s biggest neighbor stood up against Israel.
“ Syria still supports the Lebanese and Palestinian resistance. Why shouldn't we support our allies?” He asked.
Nasrallah highlighted the U.S. and Israel’s ambition to divide the Middle East saying, “the other project hasn't achieved a decisive victory, and it won't.”
