Saad el Hariri – ‘Shou Tayyoub’
This is the first time I listen to Hariri Jr. for more than ten minutes. For a period of three hours, I was introduced through Marcel Ghanem to this young, and ambitious Lebanese patriot in trust and conscience.
If you ask me, it’s definitely a change of heart towards this man. A patriotic, nationalistic and courageous young politician. He certainly has his ways of convincing, and I feel it’s much more civil than the customs used by elder politicians. I too, am looking forward for these last to return to civil life as much as you.
But Saad, is genuinely honest – I felt it, I truly felt with him the whole 3 hours. It took a good twenty minutes to kick in with his tone and tranquility, and found a humorous side to him. I admit, I laughed out loud during the talk. Somehow, in a funny way, I never saw that side of Hariri through his own prominent network, of Future TV. This guy follows a principle of being sincere, rather than serious. I love this policy, really. If you haven’t noticed, I am a Lebanese Christian, (even ashamed to admit that after such a speech) and if I was to vote today in a world where any person is able to take a single high ranking position in the Lebanese Government, I would Choose Saad over Aoun. I don’t know how I’ll feel the next morning, but for a moment it felt right!
In addition to previous posts I’ve published, I am still completely lost, two days before elections.
