عون يؤكد ان "لا تنازلات" في ملف الرئاسة: انا مع محور المقاومة ضد داعش واسرائيل

Read this story in English W460

شدد رئيس "التيار الوطني الحر" النائب ميشل عون على انه سيحارب الفساد اذا تم انتخابه رئيساً للجمهورية، معلناً من جهو اخرى انه في محور "المقاومة ذد داعش واسرائيل".

وفي حوارٍ مع صحيفة "الخبار"، الثلاثاء، قال عون: " إذا انتخبت رئيساً فسأحرّك نظام المحاسبة وأفعّل التفتيش القضائي وعندها النظام هو من يتابع هذه الأمور أوتوماتيكياً".

ومن الجدير بالذكر، ان لبنان يعيش فراغاً في سدة الرئاسة الاولى منذ ايار الفائت، لرفض الرئيس السابق ميشال سليمان تمديد ولايته وفشل النواب في التوافق على رئيس جديد، وسط خوض رئيس حزب "القوات اللبنانية" جعجع المعركة الرئاسية عن فريق قوى 14 آذار، وتمسك "حزب الله"، عن 8 آذار بعون مرشح للرئاسة.

الى ذلك، اكد عون عبر "الاخبار" انه لن يقوم بتنازلات من أجل التقارب السياسي مع رئيس "تيار المستقبل" سعد الحريري وجعجع قائلاً: "ناولت مرة واحدة للرئيس السابق ميشال سليمان ورأينا ما كانت النتيجة".

ورأى ان " الوصول الى السلطة ليس غاية، انما وسيلة لنحقق ما نطمح اليه" ، معتبراً ان الحاجة لتصحيح الامور باتت ضرورية "لأن في النظام علل كثيرة، ولكن عند المطالبة تقوم القيامة".

الى ذلك شدد رئيس التيار على ان الخروج من الطائفية يكمن عبر تطبيق مبدأ الكفاءة، قائلاً: "عندما يُطبق مبدأ الكفاءة، نصل الى اطمئنان إلى أن الكفاءة هي المعيار، وعندها يصبح الخروج من الطائفة سهلاً".

وفي سياقٍ منفصل، اعلن عون عبر "الاخبار" انه ينتمي الى "محور المقاومة ضد داعش واسرائيل"، مسلطاً الضوء على "هواجسه" من ان "خطر داعش سائر في اتجاهنا".

واردف انه لا يخشى مما يسمّى فائض القوة لدى الشيعة وذلك لأسباب عدة، "منها نشأتي ومعرفتي بالناس ومعاشرتهم و الامين العام لحزب الله السيد حسن نصر الله مع التوازن".

يشار الى ان حزب الله يحارب في سوريا منذ اندلاع الازمة في اذار 2011، ضد الجماعات الارهابية وابرزها "داعش" و"النصرة".

وتعرض لبنان لعدوان إسرائيلي عام 2006 استمر منذ 12 تموز حتى 14 من آب وذهب ضحيته 1200 شخصا من الجانب اللبناني و160 من الجانب الإسرائيلي.

وكانت اخر الاشتباكات بين الحزب واسرائيل في 28 كانون الاول الفائت، حيث تبنى حزب الله عملية قامت بها "مجموعة شهداء القنيطرة"الذين سقطوا الأحد في 18 اكانون الاول الفائت بغارة إسرائيلية، باستهداف قافلة عسكرية إسرائيلية داخل مزارع شبعا، أدت إلى سقوط قتيلين في صفوف الإسرائيليين إضافة إلى سبعة جرحى. إلا أن الجيش الإسرائيلي رد بقصف بلدات جنوبية.

“We propose things to awaken the people and make them a source of discussion. In a democratic system, you cannot clap your hands on your own. I never back down,” he added.

He has the audacity to talk about a "democratic" system when he violates the constitution on a daily basis and does not practice the fundamentals of democracy by going to parliament and elect a new president.

"Aoun has promised to hold accountable corrupt officials if he were elected a president" = reason why m14 are shaking in their boots and will do anything to block him, even try to pass a war criminal, church bomber, priest killer and mass murderer.

Thumb ashtah 11:14 ,2015 آذار 10

why does he not do it now and not wait until he becomes President. A president does not have magic powers and Aoun can easily do what he is promising right now. It is just talk for popular consumption. The corruption is rampant among hezbollah and its followers.

Yes thanks for your shrewd observation ashta! Indeed the President does not have "magic powers", but he has other, more "earthly" powers.

And no, Aoun cannot today prosecute corrupt officials, especially when these have control over the prime minister and the minister of justice, as well as most of the other key state positions.

“I hold everyone accountable on what they say"

- Looooooool everyone but yourself, and you're the self-contradictory senile lunatic who spews out the most nonsense of all the politicians you want to hold accountable. You are a traitor to your family, your loyalist soldiers, your supporters who made a human shield around your palace, and your country that you fled after you said you would die an honourable death on the battlefield against the occupiers. And above all that, you are a traitor to yourself, a man who once said Hezbollah are terrorists only to join their axis of terrorism...

Lebanon's Christians will remain divided as long as you are alive. Your death will be a step towards the unification of Lebanon's Christians.

The Islamic Republic of Iran considers General Aoun not only an ally but a citizen of the Islamic Republic. His heart and mind are with the revolution and he is welcome to be part of the axis in our Iranian Empire that includes the whole Middle East and Baghdad as its Capital.

Time to move on and elect Aoun as president. Whether we like it or not, he got the largest amount of votes amongst Christian voters and if elections happen today, he will get an even larger majority, given IS threat.
Given his electoral weight, Aoun will give the presidency some meaning. He will certainly not be a figurhead president that can be bought and sold by Syria or Saudi.
Moreover, he took a risky strategic view on his alliances that proved to be correct. After all the US and Iran are closer than at any moment since 1979.
Being against IS and Israel is in line with all political parties in Lebanon. Time for President Aoun...that would be interesting as it will break the cycle of Saudi-Syrian presidents that came after 1990.

Moreover, to be fair to Aoun, he was very transparent in his alliance with Hezbollah, a Lebanese political party with representatives in the parliament and the government. He actually published his accord. He is also very clear about his negotiations with Mustaqbal.
Aoun built alliances and was not an order taker this is why he has popular support and is respected by his previous enemies, unlike all previous serving presidents since Fouad Chehab.

Thumb Machia 15:38 ,2015 آذار 10

The Lebanese president has been imposed by foreign powers since 1990. The constitution has been mistreated to say the least. The extension of parliament is also not very constitutional.
Again, Aoun is the most popular Maronite candidate and if parliamentary elections happen today, he will get many more seats in parliament.
It is time to have a president who has an actual political weight with a strategic vision. We don't want another oder taker.

Thumb Machia 15:42 ,2015 آذار 10

And if we want to be democratic, Aoun should be president. After all Christians are partners in Lebanon. Our president should not be chosen by Saudi, Syria or Iran.

easily solved, allow the people to vote!

Thumb Machia 15:48 ,2015 آذار 10

My point here is that Aoun is today more representative of Christian public opinion than all other Christian candidates.
A president with strong popular support is very powerful. He will rely more on the support of his voters than on foreign powers.

Thumb Machia 15:53 ,2015 آذار 10

Finally the Middle East is changing. Iran is becoming a rational player that is gaining the respect of the world community.
Therefore, Aoun's alliance with Hezbollah will not impact the Lebanese interest and could be an (economic and political) boon.

texy's definition of pariah: A nation that refuses to bow down to economic enslavement.

Tell me texas, do these so called powers accept Lebanon for what it is? No they dont, they want war with us if we are different and dont accept their crazy demands, so to hell with them anyway. GOOD, let all the Lebanese expats be expelled from the GCC. The GCC countries are nothing but slaves to the banks that rule them, and the GCC countries already support the destabilization of our country, in order to gain our educated youth to build their country while they sit on their a**** getting the paychecks from our hard work.

To hell with them all. This is what you dont get. We KNOW the Western allies will not like the direction we want to take, that's the whole point. We are our own country and we choose our rules. You should stay in Texas and pay back the man like a good slave.
