I was just checking out the Socialist International website, and came across something that was posted a while back, but which I found very ridiculous and therefore worth posting:
The Socialist International welcomed today the victory in the parliamentary elections of the political alliance at the centre of the agenda for democracy, independence and political change in Lebanon, following the fourth and final round of elections held in the North of the country this weekend….
On the occasion of the final round of the elections, SI representatives held talks with the leadership of the SI member party in that country, the Progressive Socialist Party, PSP, including its leader Walid Jumblatt and its Secretary General Charif Fayad; with the leader of the ‘Future Movement’, Saad Hariri, son of the assassinated former Prime Minister, Rafik Hariri, and with the outgoing Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati.
I guess according to SI only the Druze are socialists, then. I had to laugh at the PSP membership of SI, but then again, most socialist fronts are simply laughable.
Woe to a nation whose class struggle is left to the leadership of … Jumblatt.
