Internal Divide in Lebanon
By Micah Halpern
Monday October 18, 2021
"No one is above the law and judiciary."
That is what Lebanon's Maronite Patriarch Bechara Boutros Al-Rai, the top Christian cleric in Lebanon, said regarding the protests and violence in Beirut.
He is speaking about the judiciary’s probe into last year's horrific explosion at the Beirut port and the violent reaction it has caused.
This violence may ignite more violence - sectarian violence between Shiites, Sunnis and Christians which has plagued Lebanon for decades and always lies just under the surface in Lebanon.
Remember, the Lebanese suffered under a 15 year bloody civil war from 1975-1990.
It appears that Hezbollah, the Shiite terror group sponsored by Iran, is fomenting against the investigation. We can only wonder, and at this point speculate, about why Hezbollah is so involved and cares so much about this investigation.
In his sermon the Patriarch said: "We must free the judiciary from political interference, sectarian and partisan political activism and respect its independence according to the principle of separation of powers.”
