Aoun barely mentioned the month-long protests in his speech. He said consensus on government formation remained far off because of “contradictions that control Lebanese politics.” He didn’t elaborate. (Dalati Nohra via AP)

The Lebanese government is bending over backwards to placate its Iranian masters and their proxy terror group, Hezbollah, according to a report published Tuesday by Israel’s KAN News public broadcaster.

At the signing ceremony set for next week to mark the country’s maritime border deal with Israel, each side will sign a different document and there will be no common table or photo with the two parties to the agreement.

For they have consulted together with one consent
They form a confederacy against You
.” Psalm 83:5

KAN diplomatic affairs correspondent Roi Kais reported that United Nations officials have already begun preparations in the hall designated for the separate signing ceremony, set to take place at the UN office in Naqoura on October 26 or 27.

Kais quoted a news site linked to Hezbollah which cited sources saying there will be no shared table, no shared photo, and no shared document at the ceremony. “Everything will be separate.”

President Michel Aoun said in a statement reported Tuesday by Lebanon’s state-run National News Agency that drilling for natural gas must begin soon on the Lebanese side, to make up for the time lost in the talks.
