"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. "

Returning Hariri Attends Independence Day Events after Shock Resignation- Naharnet

Lebanon is celebrating its Independence Day with a military parade attended by President Michel Aoun, Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Saad Hariri who resigned from Saudi Arabia earlier this month in a move that stunned the country.
Wednesday's parade comes hours after Hariri returned to Lebanon after a three-week absence that was described by Lebanese officials as forced upon him by his Saudi allies.
The resignation of Hariri prompted a crisis in Lebanon and set off international efforts to prevent the upending of the country's delicate sectarian-based political order.
Hariri declared his resignation on Nov. 4 in a televised speech from Saudi Arabia, in which he said he was protesting meddling in Arab affairs by Iran and its Lebanese ally. Hizbullah is a partner in the coalition government formed by Hariri a year ago.
