    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    Unfortunately we do not have the luxury to wait and we need to be the catalyser and accelerate this. With all the changes happening around us, Jewish coming from all the over the world to settle in Israel, Arabs opening up to Jewish and all the impact that this will have on us as Christian...

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    I like some of the approaches you have taken and we definitely need to start thinking of a new approach that will let us prosper as Christians in this land for the next century. An approach not based on the Ego of the leader but more of a well thought approach and strucutre where the goal is not...

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    Some of the problems raised in the posts on this thread, is the way the Christians are organised politically, which is mostly the clan tribal organisation. The Western press does not refer to Christian parties when they talk about the Lebanese christians, they refer to "The Gemayels", "The...

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    We have to change the mentality of what we undersand by a leader and how we select our leader. We are not anymore in the 19th century where the leader was one with muscle and was called شيخ الشباب like Tanios Shahine. We need to select people who are not hungry for power and for personal...

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    How to change that mentality? How to get Lebanese Christian on their free existence in this part of the world, and moving them into a cooperation mode for a bigger goal rather then the current tribal and clan mindset. They are like crabs in a corb, they are only good pulling each other down...

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    Not sure if you follow what happend to the Christians in Syria and Irak in the last 5 years. That may help bring back the discussion to a reality away from the John Lennon "Imagine" ideal

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    The Jewish state is a potential example but maybe the state itself as I believe the notion of mixing religion and state is not part of our Christian religion (While Jewish have historical Kingdom that they are trying to restore, and their books talks about a Jewish land), but what is something...

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    Agree that we are all settlers on this planet earth, and I like your vision of building a state where all would be equal. However we have experienced in the region where we live that Islam and the notion of state in the European sens are "orthogonal", i.e. incoherent. Even in Europe where we...

    The French Initiative [Saad Hariri renamed as PM]

    Jewish don't, they are having a free highway and are replacing everything that Lebanese Christians thought they had with Arabs. I expect soon that Israelie would replace Maronites in the Gulf. The Maronite tribes need to prepare for quite some dark winter...

    News General Michel Aoun elected President of the Lebanese Republic

    Do not want to comments on names in my reply, but more on the definition of "leadership material" for a Lebanese person. What is Leadership material in your view: someone who bang on the table, screams and jump from a cliff? Or what they called in the قائم مقاميتين: Sheikh el Shabeb? like...

    The French Initiative [Saad Hariri renamed as PM]

    True, but the Christians are not worth of Lebanon, they are a bunch of tribes with no vision and at at most capable to run their clans. Kamal Jumblatt was right when he said: give the Maronite weapons and they will kill each others. Zero long term vision.

    The French Initiative [Saad Hariri renamed as PM]

    Yes and GMA had a chance but failed to seize it as his focus was on how to secure Gebran Bassil to become his successor. He screwed himself and screwed us

    The Lebanese Christians Curse: their leaders Mediocrity

    Beind the descendant of whoever preceded us on this land of what we call our Christian fathers, it is quite importnant to evaluate where we stand today as Christians and realise what is awaiting us. While it is a fact that we have been always as Christians in compeition for this Land with the...

    The French Initiative [Saad Hariri renamed as PM]

    What does it help if Aoun win but we, the country and us. all lose? Is it an ego problem? For God sake someone need to act as ام الصبي and the الصبي here is not Gebran, but Lebanon and us !!

    Gebran Bassil - Head of FPM, Leader of the Strong Lebanon Bloc and Former Minister of Foreign Affairs

    Yes, it is frustrating to see that Hariri and Jumblatt are so far running loose internally and externally, but this is Exactly what our focus should be as Christian: to get Jumblat, Hariri, Sanyoura, Berri ousted, prosecuted and bring them down. Our focus, energy and priority is not to defend...

    Gebran Bassil - Head of FPM, Leader of the Strong Lebanon Bloc and Former Minister of Foreign Affairs

    What is important for us Lebanese is to bring all corrupt to justice, and the question at hand is: has Gebran taken a share in the wide lebanese corruption? To answer this question one has to find out if the companies that got awarded or seeked to be awarded the mega deals in various...

    Gebran Bassil - Head of FPM, Leader of the Strong Lebanon Bloc and Former Minister of Foreign Affairs

    خاف الله It is a big sin to try to bring even remotely the image of Jesus to Gebran you are not doing your religion or the Christian any favor by following this approach
