* Hezbolla's Deliberate Loss to Maintain Leadership

The Paris newspaper "News" wrote in today's edition that the issue is settled: Syria and "Hezbollah" intent to avoid winning the elections and succeeded in unintentionally in the ... Loss.

First, Hizbullah, to win in order to avoid what? According to one French expert on Islamic movements in the region of the "news", it is consistent with these movements, the desire to remain outside the government. Only the opposition of Islam to give the dynamics. 

In addition to these pollutants, that all experiences of Islam with the motor to power, were not encouraging. Even led to the clashes of the type which is not the intention of this Islam.. In Algeria, and Palestine. In Turkey has to win to change the fundamental fact that in Islam. Iran, of course, remains the only exception, but exception is not for exportation ... Especially in Lebanon. 

After this initial fixed, there are actually Lebanon. The Lebanese government will be on dates with the pivotal benefits: the negotiation with Israel, the settlement (this is a speech by Netanyahu), the collapse of the monetary situation, but if the movement of foreign remittances by about ten billion dollars a year ... This means increased dependence and deepening impasse mandatory. All of these benefits, prefer "Party of God" not to address them, and certainly do not bear responsibility in the report.

Then there is the regional aspect, Hezbollah remains the Sunni-Shiite strife is a red line. 
Breach sometimes become skirmishes at some points, and sudden incursions recorded lightning within it, such as the events of May 7 ... But are quick to return to the borders of a truce, "the unity of the nation", and to the duties of the search for Joamaha, above all Palestine. In the regional aspect, the people of Paris believed that considerations of Hezbollah notes, even in the form of self-accounts of "the hole" American Iranian desert, and requirements, and not take responsibility for the closure or aborted.

For all these reasons, the opinion of the French, in order to "Hezbollah" to avoid the game;
Remains a "quality"? All the mistakes or lapses back side, or rush to a speech or performance, see Parisian intentional. Hezbollah can not, especially at this level of leadership, that the slide was inadvertently or unintentionally, or ignorance to such errors.

Examples are well known and repeated: glorious day, emphasis on the continuation of the arms,  ... Is the street in the Shi'ite really need to vote for this mobilization? Or that it was a deliberate mobilization of the street opposite? As was the Sheikh Naim Qassem, to postpone its decision to continue the arms a week? Parisian ask. Ahmadinejad even talk about a change in the region if it wins the Lebanese opposition, by the "conspiracy theory Parisian", within the box itself: the question of how to ride the President of Iran? Is it possible that the liquid away from the airspace of certain?

No room for controversy in Paris with the theory adopted. 

One point can be searched by: Michel Aoun. Certainly, says Parisian, was not a "party of God" for the sacrifice's strongest ally, the Christian one. This constant. Therefore, the accounts were very precise, to avoid to win, without falling into the leadership position on the major Christian General.. Is successful formula? The answer is left up to the stage of parliamentary entitlements and government to come.

Lebanon Time-Line

Introducing Lebanon

Coolly combining the ancient with the ultramodern, Lebanon is one of the most captivating countries in the Middle East. From the Phoenician findings of Tyre (Sour) and Roman Baalbek's tremendous temple to Beirut's BO18 and Bernard Khoury's modern movement, the span of Lebanon's history leaves many visitors spinning. Tripoli (Trablous) is considered to have the best souk in the country and is famous for its Mamluk architecture. It's well equipped with a taste of modernity as well; Jounieh, formerly a sleepy fishing village, is a town alive with nightclubs and glitz on summer weekends.

With all of the Middle East's best bits - warm and welcoming people, mind-blowing history and considerable culture, Lebanon is also the antithesis of many people's imaginings of the Middle East: mostly mountainous with skiing to boot, it's also laid-back, liberal and fun. While Beirut is fast becoming the region's party place, Lebanon is working hard to recapture its crown as the 'Paris of the Orient'.

The rejuvenation of the Beirut Central District is one of the largest, most ambitious urban redevelopment projects ever undertaken. Travellers will find the excitement surrounding this and other developments and designs palpable - and very infectious.

Finally, Lebanon's cuisine is considered the richest of the region. From hummus to hommard (lobster), you'll dine like a king. With legendary sights, hospitality, food and nightlife, what more could a traveller want?

Introducing Beirut

What Beirut is depends entirely on where you are. If you’re gazing at the beautifully reconstructed colonial relics and mosques of central Beirut’s Downtown, the city is a triumph of rejuvenation over disaster.

If you’re in the young, vibrant neighbourhoods of Gemmayzeh or Achrafiye, Beirut is about living for the moment: partying, eating and drinking as if there’s no tomorrow. If you’re standing in the shadow of buildings still peppered with bullet holes, or walking the Green Line with an elderly resident, it’s a city of bitter memories and a dark past. If you’re with Beirut’s Armenians, Beirut is about salvation; if you’re with its handful of Jews, it’s about hiding your true identity. Here you’ll find the freest gay scene in the Arab Middle East, yet homosexuality is still illegal. If you’re in one of Beirut’s southern refugee camps, Beirut is about sorrow and displacement; other southern districts are considered a base for paramilitary operations and south Beirut is home to infamous Hezbollah secretary general, Hassan Nasrallah. For some, it’s a city of fear; for others, freedom.

Throw in maniacal drivers, air pollution from old, smoking Mercedes taxis, world-class universities, bars to rival Soho and coffee thicker than mud, political demonstrations, and swimming pools awash with more silicone than Miami. Add people so friendly you’ll swear it can’t be true, a political situation existing on a knife-edge, internationally renowned museums and gallery openings that continue in the face of explosions, assassinations and power cuts, and you’ll find that you’ve never experienced a capital city quite so alive and kicking – despite its frequent volatility.
