The nomination of Tammam Salam – as Lebanese PM – was sponsored by KSA who wanted to see a moderate Muslim at the head of the Lebanese government , a person that would not be considered challenging to the pro Resistance forces in Lebanon. KSA is waiting for the outcome of the war on Syria like everybody and Lebanon is kept on the waiting list, and- in order to spend this time – Salam seems to be the best candidate .The Resistance forces have accepted this nomination that will help to bring unity to the country .

This nomination had also for effect to dismantle the alliance established by the three people in power who are : Druze leader Jumblatt and the President of the Republic who is number one loser in this deal and the resigned prime minister Mikati who is the other loser .. This will have for effect to unite again the Sunni community , that has been greatly infiltrated by Salafis and fanatics and Qa’ida people who are creating havoc especially in the north and they represent only 2% OF THE POPULATION IN TRIPOLI FOR EXAMPLE. This bringing together of the Sunni community under a moderate leader will make up for the damage made by Hariri – not only to the community- but the country itself . All communities in Lebanon are witnessing this coming together , the Christians are meeting under the patronage of the Maronite Cardinal and decided to stand together to defend their rights especially after witnessing what has happened to the Christian community in Syria . The difficult step would be the forming of the cabinet that will group all factions and the consecration of a new law that will organize the coming parliamentary elections which are expected in summer and which will be decisive in determining the winner .

All this but Lebanese troubles are not over yet . Lebanon has become the headquarters for many opposition factions in Syria . It seems that the killing of Sheikh al Bouti was arranged in Lebanon by al Qa’ida and four of the major leaders have decided to take Lebanon as a platform and to liquidate every Sunni Sheikh that stands against the Salafis in Lebanon ; among the targeted ones : Sheikh Maher Hammoud Pro resistance Sunni Imam of Sidon. The Qa’ida leaders also decided to start recruiting people and establish training camps in the north . These opposition factions are taking advantage of the fact that the Lebanese society is divided over main issues . Finally, the outcome of the war on Syria will have great repercussions on everything in Lebanon .
