Over 57,000 people have signed an online petition to “place Lebanon under a French mandate for the next 10 years” as of Friday morning. The petition was directed at French President Emmanuel Macron, who on Thursday became the first foreign leader to arrive in Beirut since the tragedy struck.
The people of Beirut were so moved by the visitation of French president Emmanuel Macron that one day after his visit, over 57,000 Lebanese signed a petition demanding that Lebanon be placed under French rule, and that Emmanuel Macron become their leader. And that, my dear readers, is exactly they type of effect the bible says the man of sin will have on people.
“And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.” Daniel 11:2124 (KJB)
What a difference a day makes, right? Emmanuel Macron is a man on the rise, and seeing this story here today is a wonderful confirmation of our pick of him as the leading, and only, candidate for the person to fulfill the role of the biblical man of sin. In his own words, Macron told the Lebanese ” I am here today to propose a new political pact”. Exactly why he visited Lebanon, to add a much-needed notch to his belt in his quest to rule all of Europe.
Over 57,000 sign petition for France to take control of Lebanon
FROM DEUTSCHE WELLE: The petition on the community petition website Avaaz was reportedly set up by Lebanese citizens on Wednesday following the explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday, killing over 140 people and injuring more than 5,000.
“Lebanon’s officials have clearly shown a total inability to secure and manage the country,” the petition reads. “With a failing system, corruption, terrorism and militia the country has just reached its last breath.”
“We believe Lebanon should go back under the French mandate in order to establish a clean and durable governance.”
‘Lebanese are desperate’
Dima Tarhini, from DW’s Arabic department, said the petition had been circulating widely on Lebanese social media.
“That’s how desperate some Lebanese are,” she said. “So much has been lost from where there was already so little. They lost their homes, they lost their properties, they cannot save their children. They don’t know what to do.”
France controlled the Middle Eastern country from 1920 to 1945 under a mandate set up after World War I. The petition was directed at French President Emmanuel Macron, who on Thursday became the first foreign leader to arrive in Beirut since the tragedy struck.
Macron warned that Lebanon will “continue to sink” without reforms as he arrived in Beirut. He promised that France will help mobilize aid for the city, which has seen billions of dollars worth of damage and destruction.
Macron told angry crowds in downtown Beirut that he would seek a new deal with political authorities.
“I guarantee you this — aid will not go to corrupt hands,” Macron told protesters. “I will talk to all political forces to ask them for a new pact. I am here today to propose a new political pact to them,” he said. READ MORE
