Thread: HEZBOLLAH'S NEW STRATEGY: The clashes between the #LAF and #Hariri supporters are too obvious. The #LebanonProtests are being pushed away with this new Sunni-Shia threat. #Hezbollah's nomination of #hassan_diab is aimed at pushing the Sunni community to the streets 1/5
Now the #Hariri supporters are out, highlighting the same sectarian sentiment that the Hezbollah supporters have been highlighting for the past few week, when they were shouting "Shia, Shia, Shia." Today, the Sunnis are all Sunnis 2/5
This new Sunni vs. Shia street rhetoric has two objectives: One, encourage violence and scare the Lebanese off the streets, and two, fight the anti-sectarian spirit that has dominated the streets for two months. 3/5

The banking sector, which is the core of the Lebanese economy, is in crisis, and so is the country. asiatimes.com/2019/10/articl… #LebanonProtests
The most truthful thing said about #LebanonProtests. They are not monolithic in their aims, they are a mosaic, like Lebanon itself.
Salame is not doing his job as he should, he is using the protests to shield himself from scrutiny & pressure the gov into resigning in order to implement IMF austerity measures. He might even have sparked the protests by limiting withdrawals & spreading panic. #Lebanonprotests

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

Wow! I am watching @almanarnews discussing the parliamentary elections and they have shown videos in some voting locations of #Hariri men distributing money to voters waiting to vote. #lebanonelections2018
However, preliminary indications are that the candidate challenging #Hariri in his home turf #Saida, Ousama Saad, will be elected.
Polls will close in 4' in #Lebanon, the access to vote has been slow, news anchors are calling on voters to enter voting locations, even if it means they will be packed to earn the right to vote after 7 p.m. local because there will be no extension. #lebanonelections2018
