Lebanon is a ticking time bomb the world cannot afford to ignore

Agreements signed by leaderships that are detached from reality – and concerned primarily with protecting the interests of one side, to the detriment of the other – will not provide a fair and lasting solution to a decades-old fight. Any deal that ignores people’s aspirations, international law and the basic principle of “no peace without justice” is destined to suffer blowback. In recent weeks, this is precisely what has occurred.Lebanon will not save itself by pointing fingers at its neighbours or traditional partners, but rather by mobilising them to act collectively.
