Lebanon, and Ali Babas 40 robbers
TV-tip that takes you on holiday

the People's judgment can be just as precise as the 1001 public investigations. For colloquially so it now has utbombete the port area in the Sides of lebanon's capital Beirut has gone under the name of "the Cave of Ali Baba and the 40 robbers". Fairy tale from 1001 nights tells of how røverhøvdingen Ali Baba hid themselves, their robbers and their loot in a cave that they could open with magic words. Not so unlike how the lies and besvergelser - magic words - made the harbor of Beirut was considered the most corrupt place in Lebanon.

Corruption in Lebanon is now stripped of the ulykka that hit Beirut in the last week. Although eksplosjonens strength was extraordinary, so was the reason that the explosives were stored in the port area, ordinary; no one cared, no one took responsibility for moving it, even though "everyone" knew that it was dangerous, and warnings were sent to the "responsible" authorities. The political acknowledgments this indifference has created, led in the holy ten-thousands of protesters out in the streets. Saturday occupied the country's ministry of foreign affairs requesting that the government had to go. But they were later overpowered and chased by security forces.

One of the key requirements is a constitutional giant-reform, where the positions in the state do not follow the religious divide. Lebanon is politically and culturally a complex mosaic of mainly sunni muslims, sjia-muslims and christians. For that they should be able to coexist as developed Lebanon a maktfordelingsprinsipp where each of the groups should control their positions in the state. But instead, to produce the balance, the system has produced endemic corruption, where all have responsibility for "their", but no one has responsibility for the whole, for Lebanon. This has led to that particular Iran (sjia) and Saudi Arabia (sunni) has been a dangerous influence in Lebanon.

Vanstyret the political structures has led to the are easy to read. The political Lebanon have not agreed on a budget for the past 11 years. The currency is in free fall and has lost 80 percent of its value in recent months. The proportion of poor was 45 per cent in the last year, but is expected to be 75 per cent in the course of the year. The corruption system creates constitutes 9 per cent of GDP, according to a report from The world bank. Lebanon is overmoden for constitutional reforms. But the country is also in their neighbours ' violence. Neither Iran or Saudi Arabia will Lebanon any good. So they'd rather not, it would in Syria.
