It is difficult to find the exact date for the transformation of electricity in Lebanon from a profitable service sector to a destructive political weapon, which began to be used in the civil war, before it was subject to a truce that only lasted for a few years in the nineties of the last century, which ended with resorting to the development of its use as one of the prohibited weapons of mass destruction. internationally, and which is subject, today, to the scrutiny of the international community, and which raises its astonishment and astonishment.
Prior to this vigorous international scrutiny, it was not difficult to conclude that the dismantling of the “electrical link” between the Lebanese has touched one of the most important and last elements of their national identity, which is equivalent to the currency and the flag, and threatens their existence and survival in this dark geographical spot, where there does not seem to be any hope. By lighting it in the foreseeable future, and removing the danger of complete darkness, which leads to the classification of Lebanon as a country unfit for human habitation.
Neither with the current government, nor with any future government, there is an opportunity to get out of this dark darkness, as long as the conflict revolves around past responsibilities, not about future plans. Electricity itself has shortened the idea of a paralyzed state, and occupies the forefront of the accumulated political crises, so that it is no longer possible to reform the sector and provide this vital service to citizens, without liquidating the entire political class, and without exception, which requires a lot of time and miracles and divine interventions, which End the use of this forbidden weapon.
Please, day by day, get out of this darkness, one “enlightened” official, and with him a small team, accept to neutralize the Lebanese and spare them the danger of that deadly weapon, and act on the basis that there is a need to declare an electrical emergency, and form an operating room that meets throughout The hour, and immediately initiates the implementation of the proposed plans, to address the electricity crisis, the most important of which is building factories and alternative energy sources, and begins to collect the necessary funds, in any form, whether gifts, loans, donations, and even taxes for this particular sector, which do not burden the citizen with burdens greater than what is bear it today.
The current government, as a government of half a year and no more, said that it pledges to work to increase the hours of electricity, from the looming zero, to four, then six, and then eight hours a day as a maximum, from now until the parliamentary elections next spring. This is a great goal compared to the previous vacuum, which prevailed over the past two years, but it is a simplified thinking, given that the election itself is the time of high tension, which allows expanding the use of that sector in the electoral battles themselves, and foreshadows a return to the zero point in the nutrition that Lebanon lives on its edge.
External pressures and offers directed to the current government, as well as to the various governments that were formed in the past two decades, in order to close that black hole and stop the genocide war against the Lebanese, did not and will not result in convincing anyone that the time has come to take the first step towards a solution..even And if the international community were to pass a Security Council resolution, under Chapter VII, that would force the Lebanese officials to get their country out of the dark.
Electricity has been an absolute priority, and will remain so. Resuming the truce that prevailed in the nineties requires more than dropping that deadly weapon for the people and the state. Neither privatization is the solution, nor is the partnership between the public and private sectors, nor is it, of course, the renewal of the contract between the symbols of the political class to keep the energy sector hostage..or a tool of the struggle over Lebanese foreign policy, as is the case in Arab gas and electricity lines, and in Iranian oil pipelines .
Electricity is from now on the title of a future battle over Lebanon’s identity, and the expected additional hours of feeding will be nothing but a technical indicator of the performance of the interim government, and a preliminary evidence of the political roles of the various local forces, which curse the darkness today, but are unable to light a candle.
