AL-NAHAR NEWS PAPER STUCK ITS FOOT IN ITS MOUTH. BY THE AL-NAHR ANALYSIS (TEXT INCLUDED IN ARABIC) YOU WILL SEE HOW THE SAUDI'S - EGYPTIANS -  LEBANESE SUNNI LORDS AND BILLIONNAIRE HARIRI CONQUERED ZAHLE. IT WAS THEIR ONLY WAY TO OBTAIN THE MAJORITY IN PARLIAMENT REAGRDLESS OF THE $715 MILLION DOLLARS SPENT IN BUYING VOTES, OPRESSIONS AND OTHER FILTHY TACTICS.

HERE IS THE ANALYSIS IN NUMBERS BY AL-NAHAR WHO THOUGHT LEBANESE ARE STUPID AND CANNOT READ:

  • THE VOTING PERCENTAGE IN ZAHLE ATTAINED 58.5%.
  • THERE ARE 41,765  REGISTERED SUNNIS (THE MAJORITY OF THEM DO NOT LIVE IN THE ZAHLE REGION AND WERE TRANSPLANTED BETWEEN THE LAST ELECTIONS 2005 AND APRIL 2009)
  • THERE ARE 23,687 REGISTERED SHIITES.
  • THE VOTING PERCENTAGE OF 58.5% IS APPLIED GIVING: (41,765 @ 58.5%) 24,432 SUNNIS VOTED
  • THE VOTING PERCENTAGE OF 58.5% IS APPLIED GIVING: (23,676 @ 58.5%) 13,856
  • ACCORDING TO AL-NAHAR 87.2% OF THE SUNNI VOTES WENT TO FATTOUSH GIVING THEM: 21,304 SUNNI VOTES
  • ACCORDING TO AL-NAHAR 91.2% OF THE SHIITES VOTES WENT TO SKAFF GIVING THEM 12,636 VOTES
  • WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO COMPETING BLOCKS?  7,000 - 8,000 VOTES RIGHT?
  • NOW SUBTRACT THE SHIITES VOTES FROM THE SUNNIS VOTES AND YOU GET: 8,668 VOTES AND THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE!

SOME WILL SAY THAT BAABDA WAS WON BY THE SHIITES VOTES... TRUE! BUT TELL THEM THIS:
  • IT WAS OKAY OVER THE PAST 20 YEARS,,, RIGHT? AND ESPECIALLY IN 2005 WITH THE HELF-ROUBAII.
  • BUT HERE IS THE REAL DIFFERENCE: THE SHIITES ARE PERMANENT RESIDENTS OF BAABDA FOR A VERY LONG TIME AND EVEN BEFORE THE 1975 WAR. THEY WERE NOT TRANSAPLANTED!
