#unitelb … promotion stunt
So, are you all wondering why the current Gas crisis occured, and why did it have such an impact the past few days?
Because we’re a few days away from when the people will revolt against the sectarian system in Lebanon, February 27.
This stunt was to prove to you why we need a non-sectarian government, one that’s members are elected based on qualifications not on religion (because lets face it! being muslim/christian/druze/etc doesnt make you qualified to run anything! without having the proper education & experience), therefore, these two unqualified ministers, put in place because of political affiliations & not because they have earned their roles, have managed to turn the parliament into a school yard, scuffling over who gets to impose their way on the playground.
I would’ve wished to say that this was a paid act, and we arranged it with them to promote why Lebanese that have had enough with such absurdity are protesting on #Feb27, but sadly it’s not! Two of our most crucial and deteriorated ministries, are ruled by Kids! yes, we get petrol when they are scolded, and sent to time-out by the teacher, and we get nothing when they sit and brawl like kids. No progress will happen on the Electricity file until the Special Tribunal For Lebanon gets voted on to be Legal (as if the two files are even related) and until some-people are protected from the Tribunal’s upcoming indictments, wil sha3b 3omro ma shef il daw ( and no-one cares if the people ever see light).
Is it time to say enough to this? and #unitelb to put an end to this charade? and in the word’s on Gino’s blog : “Lebanese Fuel Crisis… Facepalm, Facepalm, Facepalm” and Facepalm!
