Walid Jumblatt in interview:

“Because of the failure of the past president, George Bush. In Palestine – total failure – and now with the new realities on the ground – the Iranians here, the Persian Empire somewhere on the shores of the Mediterranean, in Gaza, in Lebanon, controlling Syria – well, Obama is going to have to engage them.

And also because of the total failure of Americans in the so-called nation building process in Afghanistan, the Iranians are going to be a key player everywhere and the Americans will have to abide by the new rules. “

“Parliamentary elections are fateful because they provide an opportunity to build a free state,” he said.

“Today we stand at the threshold of the international tribunal,” Hariri told the cheering crowd. “The hour of truth and justice has come and your voice will overcome that of the oppressors and we will know the truth.”
