Lebanon: Teetering on the edge (Mideast Monitor)

In his article from the Jerusalem Report "Mideast Monitor" column, Prof. Bruce Maddy-Weitzman analyzes the current danger to Lebanon's continued stability in the face of recent developments, including the decision by Saudi Arabia to rescind its aid package to the Lebanese military.

"...Making matters even more charged is the fact that Lebanon’s political system has not been this fractured in decades ‒ it has been without a president since May 2014, and the term of the current parliament, the body that selects the president, is about to expire."
