THE MARONITE RIGHT IN LEBANON AND ITS ALLIANCE WITH WAHHABISM

MARONITE RIGHT IN LEBANON; BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE; BETWEEN THEOCRACY AND THEOCRACY; WHY THE PREFERENCE FOR WAHHABISM

Think of the Maronite Right as a U.S. Republican Party clone or franchise.  Just like our Republicans here, Geagea and Gemayel, inter alia,  inevitably vote for the rich because they believe, rightly or wrongly, that the rich make the best hummus.  What I mean is that rich people are what Lebanon is all about; you know, apartments with elevator garages, backless bikinis, shark skin suits, free-roam prostitution and, naturellement, Sunday mass.  It almost sounds like the Godfather Part II but with cardamon, instead of oregano.

      

The icon of murder, Geagea, is juxtaposed with the icon of charity and love – now a right-wing Maronite symbol of defiance and hate.

The Maronite Right has swung all the way to Saudi Arabia, a nation that does not permit Christians to build churches on its preposterously unholy sands.  They have found solace in the Wahhabist ban on alcohol, cinema, sorcery and fun.  Maronite right-wingers sing the praises of Saudi ape princes and commiserate with them over the perils of the evil Shi’i Velaayateh Fagheeh (Islam’s only Philosopher King) and that embarrassingly successful and plucky Hizbollah. They keep mum whenever the subject of female driving rears its ugly head, and all this while Lebanese Maronite right-wing Jezebels (always seemingly named “Antoinette”) tool around in their smart convertibles with unspeakable vulgarities at the tips of their tongues – no different than those blurted out by sailors – and all to the sounds of the most infernal rap music America can export.

The Maronite Right has turned away from Iran.  Iran is Shi’i.  Iran is the creator of Lebanon’s most insidious menace: Hizbollah.  Hizbollah is Shi’i.  And, dagnabit, there are more Shi’is in Lebanon today than Maronites.  It wasn’t supposed to be like this.  If it all went according to the French plan, Maronites would be the majority with Muslims and Orthodox Christians picking the grapes for the Arak distilleries, the olives for the presses and lint from Maronite coats before dinner.  In a perfect Maronite world, those blasted Palestinians would be in Jordan or Syria pestering Sunnis about this or that injury.  In a perfect world, South Lebanon would have no electricity and Shi’ites would be displayed as an aboriginal population for visiting Europeans – the Neanderthal Exhibition at the Smithsonian.  “Israelis” would top the RSVP list for every gala event thrown by the Geageas, Gemayels, Abi-Lama’s and `Eddy’sDabka lessons for free while you wait at the airport.  Biggest Hummus Bowl Contests. Tabbouleh cookbooks.

Just as the Maronite Right saw a cancer in the Palestinian presence, so did it transpose that vision on to the Syrians – even though it was the Syrian Army that saved their bacon (so to speak) in 1976!  Let’s face it, folks, the Lebanese National Forces, were on their way to eradicating Maronite power back in 1976 when General Assad ordered his army to intervene as part of the “deterrent forces” program sanctioned by the Arab League and grudgingly approved by the U.S..  Without going into the details of why Haafezh Al-Assad had to inject his country into the nascent civil war next door, it was clear that Syria had an interest in not preventing a Zionist incursion – which happened anyway.

      

“Man, do I have a headache.”  Amin Gemayel, who fancies himself as suave, smooth and urbane, is actually the “good cop” in the Maronite Right charade.  He denounces Arab patriots as “demagogues”.  He called Ziad exactly that when he visited Ann Arbor back in the Seventies.

Maronites are terrified of Syria and Syrians.  It’s a phobia similar to that plaguing Zionists.  Jews in Palestine fear Palestinians because it reminds them of their own non-indigenous character.  Palestinians also remain the one mortal sin they cannot wash away without losing their dream of an apartheid empire populated by The Master Jew and African laborers.    

The Maronites fear Syria because they know it was colonialism that created their Lebanon out of her.  Carved out of a hotbed of Arab nationalism, they strive to distance themselves from it in word, deed and imagination.  They revise history and censor it all to convince the world that a mountain range in Syria was a Phoenician Republic all throughout the millennia.  The chafe when they are told Jubran Khalil Jubran referred to himself as Syrian.  They fear Syria’s memory.  And they fear the Shi’is who never seemed to have accepted a partition by the wretched and failed Miles Gloriosus which is the personality of France.    

And now, as bizarre as it seems, Maronite Right-Wing Christians are siding with the theocracy of Arabia against the theocracy of Iran.  The justification is easy, almost hilarious: “We always stand with our Arab brothers against the foreigner”.  Oh Yeah?  What if France would come back and re-occupy Lebanon?  Wouldn’t that be enough to rattle out what rusty Arab nationalism is left in that old canard?  But the French are a bag of gas – inert or otherwise.  The French are almost as menacing as the Italian army in Ethiopia during the reign of Il Duce.  No.  The only game in town is Saudi Arabia.  The Maronite Right has maneuvered itself into a cul de sac no better than an existential absurdist drama written by Beckett or Ionesco.  Their end will be a quiet dimming of the lights as the audience slowly empties the theater mumbling about “warped sensibilities”.

Remember, this is about the Right.  There are many Maronites who do not share Geagea’s vision of a Switzerland coexisting with a Zionist mafia to the south taking protection money.  There are many Maronites who even  believe, as we do, that France should spend more time shaving armpits than barking belligerently at Dr. Assad.

While I agree with you Ziad that the Maronites have followed a rather shameful path with their cooperation with the Zionists and such… I can’t really blame them alot. The Maronites in Lebanon are a very western oriented people who are fed up with all the stupid things their neighbours are doing. They have no interest in snackbaring muslims chopping off eachothers head over minor theological disputes nor pan-Arabists who follow communism and seek to destroy the Kurds and Assyrians (infact the Maronites are Assyrians as far as I know, just Arabised). So while I think the Maronites have more… Read more »

Hello Mr. Ziad,

Greetings to u. More Turkish bad news for you.

Taxes, Inflation, And Now The Military: Turkish Stocks & Currency Re-Tumble

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-01-02/taxes-inflation-and-now-military-turkish-stocks-currency-re-tumble

Ziad, apparently Erdoghan arrested and convicted hundreds of generals and officer for plotting a coup. It now turns out that the prima facie evidence against them was fabricated. (Fraud Upon the Court.) The judges knew it was fabricated as well as the pros. A military coup is coming. Ziad, if Erdoghan falls, then the Syrians can start to line up on Jordan. Buy the Syrian Dollar and sell the Turkish Dollar tomorrow. Take care.

Z, there may be a few treacherous Maronite leaders, but there are plenty of ordinary traitorous Syrians and Arabs. Let’s do a history lesson and you will quickly see who is traitorous. First, Lebanon exists because the Maronites didn’t want to bow down to muslims any longer, the Turks didn’t like the idea that these rebellious mountain Christians would have the audacity to stand up for themselves, so they pitted the Druze against them in 1860 and in a coordinated massacre, thousands were slaughtered in Jabal Lubnan. So, the original reason for Lebanon existing is that Maronites refused to pay… Read more »

Oh oh Ziad,

Secretary of State Kerry is reading Syrian Perspective:

“In private meetings with U.S. officials, Mr. Kerry singled out Prince Bandar as “the problem,” complaining about his conduct, according to meeting participants.”

Syria: White House Accepts Reality
http://www.moonofalabama.org/2014/01/syria-white-house-accepts-reality.html

We shall now be on the look out for some public signs of U.S. misgivings towards the Saudis if only to convince King Abdullah to send the by now rather hapless Prince Bandar back into the desert.

Take care Ziad.

Ask your Russian allies what they think of the Sunni-Shia war funded by the Sauds and Iran . It is being played out on Syrian soil with superpowers sitting back and letting the war go on. Who profits from this the most…?

As look in the mirror says, you can´t just mention Geagea and Gemayel as the voice of ALL the maronites.Both are war criminals. Geagea has almost went out from jail as to say. He has got christian blood on his hand. Blood from his own. Right saying that the followers of those extremists maronites behave as all extremists. There is no ideal or religion in those leaders, just a mafia. Watch the villa bunker that mister Geagea has got built. Watch the Gemayel family living abroad as if they were the Sha of Persia.The main, and big problem everywhere is… Read more »

Not surprising about the Maronite right. They previously called themselves falange after the Mussolini/Franco fascists. They’ve also been Israel’s toys since that fascist state formed. Facists and zionazis are their masters. Now they are offering their bums to the Israeli Saudi colony. Freaks of a feather….

Sometimes I wonder if there is a genetic defect that runs common throughout these various far right “prison bitches”.

US greatest threat to world peace – poll

http://voiceofrussia.com/news/2014_01_02/US-greatest-threat-to-world-peace-poll-6071/

“The US has been voted as the most significant threat to world peace in a survey across 68 different countries. Anti-American sentiment was not only recorded in antagonistic countries, but also in many allied NATO partners like Turkey and Greece.

After its numerous threats of a strike on Iran, many countries voted Israel was the biggest threat to prosperity. Morocco, Lebanon and Iraq all chose Israel as the number one danger to world peace.”

I suspect those in Lebanon voting Israel as the number one threat were not the Maronite “prison bitches”. ;D

i am amazed that arabs and africans cannot see the plan is to balkanise their countries. to divide them up into small weak statelets, for the benefit of the imperial powers. like libya their countries will be destroyed and they will live under a chaotic system, poverty stricken with no rule of law and extreme violence. and yet some rush headlong into the abyss happily. such people are a direct result of inbreeding in my opinion. and deserve what they get without any sympathy from me. in fact i laugh at their stupidity
