"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Electing Aoun Will Drive Lebanon to Negativity- Naharnet

Telecommunications Minister Butros Harb said on Saturday that it is not in al-Mustaqbal Movement ex-PM Saad Hariri's interest to nominate MP Michel Aoun for the presidency, as he pointed out that it would lead the country to “negativity.”
“The country will arrive at a lot of negativity shall Aoun (founder of the Free Patriotic Movement) become a president,” said Harb to the VDL (100.5) in an interview.
“Although Hariri has not nominated Aoun yet, but I can see that he is apt to support his candidacy,” added Harab.
“It is not in Hariri's interest,” he went on to say.
Highlighting the interference of Hizbullah, Aoun's ally, in the war in Syria Harb asked: “We still don't know the position of Aoun as for the involvement of Hizbullah in Syria?”
Hariri held a much-anticipated meeting with Aoun in Rabieh on Friday, shortly after he held talks in Maarab with Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea.
