Ghassan Salamah who just turned down a ministerial appointment in Lebanon (and who served as advisor to the UN representative in Iraq) spoke to a radio station on Iraqi developments. He blasted the sectarian system in Lebanon and called for secularization of the country (which I wholeheartedly support of course). He also lamented the emulation of the Lebanese sectarian system in Iraq. He said that the recent Iraqi election was not an election, but a "sectarian census." Kudos Ghassan.
