"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. "

Qaouq Says Lebanon to Face 'Disaster' if No New Electoral Law- Naharnet

Hizbullah central council official Sheikh Nabil Qaouq warned Sunday that Lebanon would face a “disaster” should no new electoral law be approved soon.
“Lebanon would be approaching a disaster should no new electoral law be approved before the expiry of the legal deadlines, seeing as failure to approve it would drain all the political, social and economic stability in Lebanon,” Qaouq said.
He stressed that Hizbullah “has offered concessions for the sake of allowing consensus over a new electoral law” and that “it is not part of the complications and ongoing bickering over this law.”
“Those who would be affected from the correction of electoral representation are the obstacle and they are the ones who are not concealing their intentions and are still practicing political maneuvering,” Qaouq charged.
