Comparison between Lebanon and gulf leaders

 Talking about the difference between the leaders of the Gulf and the Lebanese is interesting, because they are hardly comparable, due to the collapse and corruption that Lebanon has reached, and on the other hand, the achievement after the other Gulf countries, including Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The leaders of the cedars land have brought the country to the bottom of hell, according to a report issued by the on the Lebanese crisis as the worst in decades, as the poverty rate has exceeded 80% and unemployment is more than 50%. An article was posted on the writer says that Lebanese problems are coming from corruption and not choosing the right people. But corruption also afflicts their people for example pharmacies store medicines in order to increase their profits without providing them to sick people, and also the owners of shops and gas stations, do not pay taxes to the state, so their currency is to further collapse, and no one cares about the movements or demonstrations that take place. Most of the Gulf States began, in effect, abandoning Lebanon at least a decade ago. These countries have long been uncomfortable with the decisive political power in Lebanon enjoyed by the pro-Iranian Shi'ite Hezbollah. These concerns have mounted steadily with the rise and reach of Iran's regional influence following the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, and the successful intervention of Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran in the Syrian civil war, beginning in 2015, in support of the regime in Damascus. Since the main part of the Syrian conflict ended with the fall of Aleppo to pro-regime forces, Hezbollah has been playing a regional role beyond its function as a Lebanese political party and militia. And it began to work effectively as a vanguard for the vast Iranian network of allied militias in Arab countries such as Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen, and beyond that with its presence and playing an effective role outside the Lebanese borders. After many years of pressure and efforts to find ways to manoeuvre inside Lebanon to neutralize Hezbollah or restrict its activities and capabilities, many Gulf countries seem to have come to the conclusion that working inside Lebanon under the current circumstances is a lost cause. The first clear indication that the Gulf States were ready to withdraw from Lebanon came in 2016, when Saudi Arabia cut billions of dollars in aid to Lebanon, stopped encouraging Saudi tourism to Lebanon, and, along with the entire Arab League, officially designated Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Although some aid was eventually resumed, the level of support that Riyadh was providing to its Lebanese allies, especially the Sunni Muslim components surrounding former Prime Minister Saad el Hariri. Aid to and trade with Lebanon was subsequently resumed, to a large extent, until recently, but the Gulf States stopped short of mobilizing their influence to prevent the state and society they were sponsored from being used against their interests throughout the region. It was this discontent, along with the recent wave of insults that was the main impetus for ostracizing Lebanon. However, the broader regional context also plays a crucial role. The shift of regional players over the past eighteen months, at least, throughout the Middle East away from direct or indirect confrontations and toward relying on diplomacy, politics, and trade to pursue their interests helps explain Gulf strategic thinking regarding Lebanon. In fact, stopping financial aid to the Lebanese state, especially in times of distress. On the other hand, with the unparalleled progress witnessed by the UAE and Saudi Arabia, everyone is witnessing their achievements, as in a remarkable statement by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who says that the new Europe will be the Middle East. Among the most prominent of these achievements were the UAE and Saudi Arabia. UAE: Launching the first space exploration, making their country like heaven on earth, the fourth richest country in Asia And the seventh richest country in the world, according to the it has the largest tower in the world, which is the Burj Khalifa, and it has become a destination for many tourists around the world. What is remarkable in this country is that its president, ShEIKH Muhammad bin Zayed, said when the Corona pandemic occurred three years ago, do not be afraid for food security or medicine, for we have it beyond the end, and the UAE is a country that wants peace. This was the policy of my father, Sheikh Zayed, may his soul rest in peace. Saudi achievements: As soon as Prince Muhammad bin Salman assumed the mandate of the Covenant years ago and the shape of Saudi Arabia changed, it became a focus of attention for many, from the opening of cinemas, the launch of the 2030 plan, and the establishment of giant projects such as the city of NEOM, which will become an important city for work in the field of artificial intelligence, especially with the prominent development of technology. Some sources say that the goal of Vision 2030 is to reduce the unemployment rate among Saudi citizens. These are some of the differences between the leaders of the Gulf and Lebanon. Some of them think of their people and see them as role models, and other cares about their interests. What is remarkable about the subject is the visit of the ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid, to Lebanon decades ago, where he wrote in one of his novels that when he returned to Dubai, he said, "I hope one day that this emirate will become Like Beirut," but by chance, the emirate of Dubai preceded the city of Beirut by far, and finally every people chooses who they represent.
