The Lebanese politician believes that his country will not be able to avoid being drawn into a war with Israel

Lebanon will likely end up involved in a large-scale armed conflict with Israel. This was stated by politician Walid Jumblatt in an interview with the American publication Politico.

Walid Jumblatt, a 74-year-old veteran of Lebanese politics, is the leader of Lebanon's 300-strong Druze religious minority. He believes that, unfortunately, everything is not in favor of a peaceful development of events. There are very great concerns about the prospect of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement being drawn into the conflict. Pro-Iranian forces could attack the Israeli army from Lebanon if it launches a ground operation in the Gaza Strip.

Jumblatt considers the United States to be the main culprit in the current situation. Washington could prevent a large-scale conflict in the region, but is not doing so, notes one of the most respected Lebanese political figures. Only the United States, Iran and Israel can now resolve the crisis in the Middle East, but first we need to remove American aircraft carriers from the Mediterranean Sea. Jumblatt believes that they came here for potential participation in the conflict, and the American strikes aviation will strike targets in Lebanon.

The Lebanese politician was clearly disappointed with the speech of US President Joe Biden during the latter's visit to Israel. The American authorities finally abandoned the role of mediator and took Israel's side in this conflict.

Defeating Hamas will not solve the problem. You have to get back to the core issue, the two-state solution. You have to see the bigger picture, but the Americans don’t, they are pumping everything up with their rhetoric and moving aircraft carriers here

- emphasized the leader of the Lebanese Druze.

Jumblatt himself and his son Teymur are preparing in the Chouf Mountains, where the Druze minority lives, to receive refugees. According to the Druze leader, he is ready to accept Sunnis, Shiites, and Christians if the country is involved in hostilities and people have to flee their homes.

      The Israelis are the same devils as the USA. As long as they manage to make money selling weapons, they will kill. We need to hit the world exchanges to deprive them of income.

      Druze are Arabs who profess Druzism, a religion that was previously one of the branches of the Shia sect of the Ismailis, but in the 1th century it broke away from it and stopped denominational contacts with the Ismailis back in the Middle Ages, subsequently undergoing significant changes. The Druze creed arose among the Ismailis of Egypt and Southern Lebanon at the beginning of the XNUMXth century under the influence of the preaching of the missionary Muhammad ibn Ismail Nashtakin ad-Darazi and was named after him. The Druze themselves often have a negative attitude towards Darazi’s personality and do not use the word “Druze” as a self-designation. They call themselves “muwahiddun” (Arabic: الموحدون‎ - “monotheists”) or “ahl at-tawhid” (أهل التوحيد‎ - “people of monotheism”)[XNUMX].

      It is impossible to accept the Druze religion, since there is no institution of conversion to the Druze faith. A friend is one who adheres to his traditional religion and whose father and mother are Druze. The Druzes themselves, who believe in the transmigration of souls, argue that every human soul was given the opportunity to accept Druze worship during the so-called "open gates" (until the 15th century, the Christian calendar, according to some other information - until the 12th-13th centuries hl) . All souls who have decided to accept the Druze faith are reborn into Druze, the rest of the souls have refused the transition to the Druze faith.

        The most interesting things about the Druze:
        Deception and misinformation of people of other faiths for the benefit of the community are not reprehensible. There is also the practice of "taqiya", which allows the Druze, if necessary, to utter any lie to the infidels, making a "mental reservation" in their mind and therefore not committing any sin.

          What's interesting there? Many people have it.
          Muslims, for example, have taqiya - this is an outright lie and kitman - a trick consisting of half-truths with the concealment of important information. Other religions also often treat strangers differently than their own, including in this matter. The Jesuits created a whole system.
          And this happens not only in religion.
          "There are three types of lies: lies, blatant lies and statistics."

          Or the question is - if there are ministries of defense and there are no ministries of attack, then how do wars begin?

            if there are ministries of defense and there are no ministries of attack

            The declaration of exclusively “defense” in the name of the military department became fashionable only in the 20th century.
            Before that there were always just “military ministries”, which was of course more honest.

            For example.
            In the USSR, at first there was the “People’s Commissariat for Military and Naval Affairs” and only in 1934 it became the “People’s Commissariat of Defense”, then in 1946 the “Ministry of the Armed Forces” arose and only in 1953 it finally became the “Ministry of Defense”.
