The “Brothers” Berri and Bassil
Elie Aoun/February 05/18
With regard to the recent “quarrel” between Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and the Foreign Minister Gibran Bassil, it is never sufficient to look at the political aspects and the spoken rhetoric. We must always analyze the root causes.
Mutual forgiveness and apologies for a staged “fight” may relieve temporary political symptoms but does not cure the disease. Those who truly rule Lebanon and rule both Berri and Bassil are certain clergymen and secret societies.
Berri is a member of Freemasonry. Bassil is a member of the Rotary Club, which is nothing more than a Freemason branch – as evidenced by the Freemason logo placed (on certain occasions) within the Rotary logo.
Therefore, Berri and Bassil are “brothers” in the “Brotherhood,” leading us to conclude the following:
Firstly, although these groups pretend to have humanitarian and business objectives, their role is more sinister than what is declared in public.
Politically, they elevate certain individuals to political power, at the expense of other more qualified individuals, and then “guide” them and use them to advance their own agenda.
The Freemason and Rotarian politicians take an oath of loyalty to their own “club.” That oath supercedes any loyalty to a political party, a country, or a constitution.
Berri and Bassil can say whatever they want against each other, but none of them will produce any evidence that would expose the corruption of the other. Now you know the reason why.
Secondly, both Freemasonry and Rotary are involved in “dark” spirituality.
From an Islamic perspective, the Islamic Fiqh Council considers the Rotary as a branch of Freemasonry which aims for “destruction,” and “whoever associates with it, knowing its reality and objectives, is an unbeliever.”
From a Catholic perspective, there is a 1738 papal bull that bans Catholics from entering Freemasonry (and, technically, a prohibition that includes all of its branches).
These prohibitions would not have been issued if Freemasonry and Rotary Club were solely humanitarian and business in nature. Said prohibitions reflect a reality of these societies’ involvement in “dark” spirituality.
In a recorded video of a Freemasonic initiation ceremony held in a Turkish Freemason lodge, the new recruits are told that they will be taken into “the dark zone” and not to tell anyone of what they see or hear.

A sword is held to the initiates’ chest as a reminder of the severe punishment that would befall on them if they do not keep their promises.

Later in the video, a ritual exposes Freemasons sacrificing a goat in a lodge.

Pursuant to the Code of Cannon Law 685(§2), relating to separation or transfer of members from one religious institute to another: “Through profession in the new institute, the member is incorporated into it while the preceding vows, rights, and obligations cease.”
As a result, and from a religious perspective, neither Berri is a Muslim nor Bassil is a Christian. By taking vows in the new spiritual institute (Freemasonry or Rotary), their preceding vows (in Christianity or Islam) ceased.
It should be noted that at least 100,000 Lebanese belong to Freemasonry, including half of the Lebanese parliament and half of the Cabinet.
Do we still wonder why the country’s situation does not improve and a multitude of problems with available solutions are never resolved? Do we still wonder why the real truth behind assassinations or corruptions is never exposed? The participants are members of the same club and cannot by oath expose one another.
The root cause of Lebanon’s problems is not political, but spiritual: Many of those who are in government and various political parties belong to the “dark zone” – and we should not expect light from darkness.
In conclusion, there are those who pretend to be defending “Christian rights” while their conduct has nothing to do with being a Christian: They alienate true patriots, make no meaningful contribution to their community, and select certain individuals on their parliamentary list that make no meaningful contribution to their community or the country.
At other times, these same individuals pretend to support a “secular state.” Whatever that means, in practice they do not pursue viable policies to resolve many of Lebanon’s problematic issues.
All sides are eloquent in making promises and pointing out faults of other political parties, while they themselves deliver noting meaningful to the Lebanese population. They only offer delusions of being different, when in reality they are all members of the same “club” and belong to the same “dark zone.”
In Matthew 7:6, we are told: “Don’t give that which is holy to the dogs, neither throw your pearls before the pigs, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.”
That is exactly what has been taking place for generations in Lebanon: Good-hearted Lebanese dedicate their time, money, energy, and efforts behind this or that political party — only to be betrayed and their sacrifices are trampled upon, and the leadership of these parties work against all the ideals it once claimed to uphold.
In an election year, vote for truly independent sovereign individuals, stay away from the major political parties, and do not throw your votes…
