Michel Hayek, known as the Lebanese Nostradamus, appeared once again on MTV Lebanon at the end of December, like every year, to share new predictions about Lebanon and the world.
He stressed that his predictions for this year, like every year, do not necessarily stop at 2022, and what he foresaw could extend beyond it.
For Lebanon, Hayek labeled 2022 as a year of “difficult labor”, comparing Lebanon to a divorced and pregnant woman with many problems in her womb, and who is about to deliver.
He spoke about conflicts and assassinations, a new parliament and a new president, divorces in alliances, house arrests, smuggling of officials, the Beirut Blast investigation, the current crises, the rise of the economy, and more.
Here are the most relevant of what he said about Lebanon 2022:
Lebanon, the Pregnant Woman
It doesn’t matter if she gave birth on the 7th or 9th month, or if the baby is a boy or a girl.
The labor will be very difficult, and she will give birth in the dark because she is still in the dark tunnel.
She will not have a natural birth but a Cesarean section with many doctors needed in the same operating room, and these doctors might be from outside Lebanon.
The birthing will be confusing, complex, and dangerous but, between life and death, a miracle will take place.
She will deliver twins among difficulties: A new parliament and a new president.
The New Parliament: A New Face
There will be a new parliament despite the complexities surrounding the delivery: dates postponements, “buy and sell”, falsification, mined alliances, appeals against appeals, security and bloody threats, and attempts to abort the newborn and the elections.
There will be new faces and young blood in the parliament, which will be very important as these will work with all their hearts.
That parliament will be a transitional one.
The New President
There will be a new president and no one should be surprised.
Current president Michel Aoun loses and wins at the same time, similar to what Hayek had predicted last year about Trump.
Michel Aoun hands over the power and does not hand it, the result is that he will leave in an unfamiliar way.
This will happen following many scenarios from his side that will preoccupy the people.
The new president will have limited capability but will begin to work to transfer Lebanon to the other side where the people will no longer worry about electricity, water, telecommunication, transport, fuel, education fees, hospital bills, the elderly, and other.
He will do for Lebanon like president Sisi did for Egypt.
His presidency will be temporary, like the parliament, a transitional phase.
All these new presidencies are temporary for a transition phase that will take the people from the old “100-year Lebanon” that got tired to a new Lebanon.
The New Lebanon will have “many insides.”
The year will be one of pregnancies, births, and divorces. All will divorce all (speaking about politicians and their alliances).
That phase will pass and, as it will, the current old system will begin to change, and will explode from up and down and over each other.
The Current Main Crises
The Lebanese Pound & The Dollar
The majority of the Lebanese people will continue to cry over the currency until the achievements of an adjustment between the Lebanese pound and the dollar, which will be the start of the solution and the exit.
After it was a yo-yo in hand, the dollar will be like a spring under the Lebanese feet in the next phase.
The spring has no ceiling and no limits, but it has a point in which it cannot expand beyond its capability.
Efforts towards a smooth financial deal that won’t pass by any white or black market, and won’t be impacted by any positions, exchangers, or official edicts.
Money exchangers are seen briddled as well as a major setback for a large number of dollar manipulators.
The Real Estate & The Economy
The stagnancy of real estate won’t be long nor deep.
The economy will see the beginning of a transformation and a new start despite the tremors it will face.
The wheels of the economy will turn, and the economy in its agriculture, production/manufacture, and trade will start getting out of its sleep.
Hayek still insists that the cure for COVID-19 is simple and silly and is probably unrevealed because the coronavisus has been too linked to conflicts, economy, gains and losses, etc at the global level.
We will hear every day of a new variant and a new model, and a new product, marketing, and trading.
There has been a breach in the program of the universe and it is enlarging and expanding, and new small and foreign bodies have started to come from “another place”, whether they would be called viruses or other.
All don’t concord with human nature.
The danger about them is that they are not passing but will increase and develop. Humans will enter wars against them to fight them and stop their spread.
Some countries might manage to control them, and some not.
They are like terrifying ghosts hard to fight.
These strange viruses and symptoms will have a cure in two places: Part of it in the scientific labs and part of it in our subconscious mind.
Humans, in his opinion, must start learning how to engage with their subconcious minds, by practicing a strong focus, to be prepared to deal with the coming challenges of the “foreign viruses.”
