The sectarian political structure of Lebanon and the influence areas of different sects and the actors with whom they are related abroad are the main factors affecting their attitude towards the events.
NO GOVERNMENT …
First of all, there is no government that can react to the Lebanese people. Even if it is a government, it is a matter of controversy. It is not uncommon in Lebanese politics that a minister makes a completely opposite statement to the prime minister.
The only agenda of politics these days is the establishment of government. Hasan Diab, who accepted the post after Mohammed Safadi and Semir Katib, who returned the task of forming a government both because of their reactions and because they couldn’t handle it, also had a hard time. This time, the Lebanese people, who have been accustomed to living without government for a long time in previous years, are reactive. Demonstrators, who have been on the streets for months, are rebelling that savaş there will be almost a war in the Middle East and they have not even formed a government daha.
Saad Hariri, who resigned after the protesters’ reaction on October 29th, is still a temporary prime minister. However, it seems that Hariri is one of those who cannot say anything about the Iran-US tension. How could she? The first will have to leave his seat after a while, the second does not want to make promises that can be counted in favor of or against Iran.
Hezbollah, Iran’s ally in Lebanon, is also one of the most important players in Lebanese politics. Moreover, even though they have experienced fatal competition in the past, in the recent crisis, Hezbollah made an effort to prevent Hariri from resigning, in other words supporting Hariri. If Hariri speaks in favor of Iran, this time he might get a reaction from his own supporters, and not only in Saudi Arabia, but also with strong ties.
With any developments in Lebanon or the region, the eyes immediately turn to Hasan Nasrallah. Hezbollah’s position is very important for its supporters and opponents. The same situation occurred after the US murder of Kasım Süleymani and Abu Mehdi Al Mühendis. The Lebanese, who had another article full of rumors of “Hezbollah-Israel war“, started to wait for statements from Hezbollah in the region together with the total war scenario. It was important how the organization, which opposed Israel in the July 2006 war, reacted to the assassinations of the US as the outpost of the Resistance Axis.
Fortunately, Nasrallah did not give the message, “We are going to war tomorrow,” despite the classic statement that “they will target US military assets in the region.” Moreover, he also called for amas no action against civilians of US citizens “.
Are these words of Nasrallah enough to take a sigh of relief? Not because we’re in a geography where the world is rebuilt every morning. Moreover, Nasrallah recalled the action in which 241 American soldiers were killed in 1983.
Hariri and Nasrallah are the most important representatives of the two largest political groups in Lebanon (March 14 and March 8). The silence of the other parties and movements is remarkable in the country, where the culture of discussion is highly developed and where open sessions are watched with interest on dozens of television channels every evening. If Lebanon had “normal” times, we would probably have the same mood, but no one has the time to deal with the Iran-US tension, except for Hezbollah, which is now a direct party.
Almost everyone’s problem is how to get involved in the government. One of the reasons for the long-term efforts to form a government in Lebanon is the competition within the parties and movements, which have a certain ministry to give to the cabinet. Because of this competition, it may be delayed to announce the name of the candidate to the cabinet.
Lebanon is fussy these days. Of course, the people’s problem is that of other politicians. The public is at odds with all politicians and demonstrates against them. Politicians are in trouble to get a share of the power pie. Iran-US war? Frankly they don’t care!
