Eyal Zisser, the Vice Rector of TAU and former director of MDC, has published an article in "Israel Hayom", discussing the recent elections in Lebanon.

"In Lebanon, the votes were still being counted in the wake of Sunday's parliamentary elections, but preliminary results indicate that not much will change in the beleaguered country.

"The essence, however, remains unchanged – it is a weak, helpless country, currently a failing state, which allows the Lebanese elites to continue doing as they please."
