In a quarter of a century, Lebanon has been exposed to a series of financial shocks resulting from internal or external political wars and crises.


Since the early days of the beginning of the “recovery” of the political and national homeland and with the first beginnings of the exchange rate of the dollar against the Lebanese pound from 2750 pounds to 1500 pounds, the Israeli aggression in its July 1993 war was the first of the challenges and then the ball of the ball in a periodic and steady rate.


The most prominent stations were

1) The aggression of April 1996

2) Extension of President Elias Hrawi in the same year

3) The apology of Prime Minister Rafic Hariri for the formation of the first government under President Emile Lahoud and the crisis that broke out in 1998

4) Israel’s bombing of power plants in Lebanon in June 1999 and the threat of war on Lebanon before the Israeli elections

5) The events of 11 September 2001 and the confusion that followed, especially with regard to remittances

6) The 2003 occupation of Iraq and the accompanying American threats to the entire region

7) Extension of President Emile Lahoud and Resolution 1559 in conjunction with the Syrian Accountability Act and the imposition of economic and financial sanctions on it

8) The assassination of Prime Minister Rafic Hariri, the major political crisis and the Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon

9) The Israeli war in July 2006, the international and Arab pressure on Lebanon and the talk of the new Middle East and the end of Hezbollah and the axis of resistance.

10) Presidential and government vacations and internal tensions, sit-ins and major demonstrations, a truncated government, the events of May 2008, followed by Doha and government-led conflicts. The resignation of 11 ministers and the departure of the government of President Saad Hariri 2011, and then the beginning of the Syrian crisis and its aftermath.


A record of shocks, major and minor, but the lasting result is Lebanon’s ability to emerge from the challenge and the ability to continue and progress


Today, after nearly two weeks of crisis, which I want to be the most difficult and difficult, through the use of all available weapons, including the imposition of sanctions and sanctions on the Lebanese state itself, by lifting the mask for everything that was attending and all that happened with Prime Minister Saad Hariri, All that was said explicitly to dozens of Arab or foreign officials who tried to intervene. After all this time, the outcome seems to be positive for Lebanon, despite the use of organized and organized intimidation campaigns, internally and externally, and some of them, perhaps not in bad faith, are Lebanese buffers in a number market.


Within two weeks, the value of the money transferred from the national currency to the dollar did not exceed one billion and 700 million dollars, and did not come out of the Lebanese banking system out of the border except those natural transfers that occur for commercial or other reasons


As for the donations of figures, media outlets and media outlets that are publicly linked to those who declare war on Lebanon these days, their inflated figures should be checked for exports, remittances or the economic impact. Here is the responsibility of the government and official bodies to clarify what is published and re-announced figures already known, and has been published repeatedly.


Those who dare today to accuse Lebanon of terrorism and impose sanctions on it, and if it fails, it does not hesitate to use all the solutions available to it.


The continued success of Lebanon and overcome these shocks, based on the monetary level without financial or economic and thus the success of the success of the cost is great with each time.


The time has come for a quarter of a century of challenges, successes and cost to take a courageous decision, similar to what Lebanon has experienced since the beginning of this current crisis. The crisis is an opportunity to create a productive, effective and unregulated economy or a mortgagee for a rival or friend.


Conditions for building the economy are available and known as the lesson of will and management away from interests and owners of monopolies.
