Lebanon finally elected a president

Retired General Michel Aoun has finally been elected Lebanese President after 29 months of inflighting.

President Aoun, a Maronite Christian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maronite_Christianity_in_Lebanon and was elected with support from Hezbollah with whom he has been in Alliance with for a number of years

Aoun who opposed the Syrian presence in Syria was expelled in 1990 when Syria and US were allies following Saddam's invasion of Kuwait.

This makes a long count in a 5 seater look like childsplay.

In Lebannon the role of the President is reserved for a Christian, Prime Minster a Sunni Muslim and Parliment speaker a Shia Muslim.

Aoun and Assad are mates. Assad is happy with the result, as are the resilient Syrian people.

Aoun fought against his father to expel Syrians Army from Lebannon and was exiled for 15 years.

Syrian Army were the ones that ended Lebanese Civil War.

Will European countries have to make similar concessions to Muslims when they're no longer a minority?

You are, but sure we knew that already. ;)


It's all that I can think of when I see him...until my thoughts turn to asking him if he ever wonders at his luck, at being held hostage when captors actually wanted the outcome to be a negotiated release.

I should add that BK hasn't a clue who I am or that I have the slightest clue who he is!

By far the best kind of relationship to have with an ex-hostage, on balance.
