I beg to add something positivethere was nothing beautiful about the war. but the people were better cultured, more refined, friendlier, there was still a Lebanese culture in Lebanon. now it is a big ugly mush of everything. people have changed, they are now less refined, emptier, more arrogant, etc.. quite a tragedy that we have lost now what we preserved even during the ugliest war.
The beauty in tragedy, it creates passionate people!I beg to add something positive
The most beautiful thing during the war was hope and dreams.
We were hoping and longing to end the war and meet the other Lebanese and start building.
Happiness is driven by expectations and hope. We were happy driven by hope.
Only to find out the sour reality ..
Like the Arab-Israeli conflict, the Lebanese civil war was just another post-Colonial mess.In the sense that it’s an artificial country. After all, the borders were drawn by North Europeans. Under the Ottomans, Mount Lebanon was just a subdivision of modern day Lebanon. The French Mandate took other areas and lumped them together, much like they did with the Arab tribes. If anything, the inhabitants of Mount Lebanon shared more culture with modern day Syria than some of our coastal areas and south of Lebanon. Many of the differences you see now between Lebanon and Syria came after the French Mandate.
It’s simply a fact that Lebanon did not come together organically as opposed to many European nations, Egypt, Turkey, and Iran as nearby examples. I'm pretty sure foreigners also drew borders around some of the countries I mentioned, but their boundaries made more sense than our khabeesa.
Maybe, bas el Hindus mish hayneen kamen.Well isn't that true everywhere? Look how India was partitioned?
partitions that created some really ugly civil wars!
Imagine there’s no countries... imagine there’s no religion... in the words of John Lennon, the world would be as one, a brotherhood (sisterhood) of man (and woman)...Forget about SSNP and all these nationalist ideologies..
Speaking about beauty wouldn't it be beautiful to be able to visit Aaka, Jafa, Damascus and Jerusalem etc. like going to any city in Lebanon?
Wouldn't it be a beautiful thing to have the freedom of movement in our region?
If you want to know the causes of the war instead of pointing at each others you should be pointing at these fake apartheid states!
The problem is we are all greedy and always wanted more.. it wasn't enough with a little house with a garden or a tiny house with a magnificent mountain view! That was too boring I guess and now we are all just longing to go back!
This regions has a true beauty.. only problem many people do not want to explore it they want to keep themselves enclosed!
are ssnp and you speak in a sectarian wayMaybe, bas el Hindus mish hayneen kamen.
Our fellow Muslim brothers have suffered immensely throughout history starting with the Cursaders (Allah la ywaffe2on), Bosnia, and now Myanmar...
It's God's way of testing their faith.
Big mistake true. But don’t separate one decision from the other. What was the cause of inviting these? It’s like self-pitying sabra and chatila (with all its atrocities) without looking what caused it.Lebanese Muslims are the traitor ones for standing with their neighbours but the ones who invited these filth are the good patriots
Nazaata bel ekher. Why everyone in Tayyar is trying to promote this kid. He’s a j**k. Changing his look doesn’t change his mindGo to ABC and see the Customers
80 percent Christians
Most Important Class people are in Abc achrafieh and dabieh ; also highest renting are there

But Muslims should be patriotic and stop being complexed by Christians
See HA Supporters attacking Bassil who defended them all over the world
Yes they had F-16s, F-15s, MIG-35s, SU-30s, GBUs and ballistic missiles and they bombed themselves using them, to destroy the whole Arab and Muslim world.The Islamists and Isis destroyed Syria and Iraq
Thank you. I'm not sectarian. I'm just not afraid to state things as they are.You
are ssnp and you speak in a sectarian way
Anyway I accept you as you are
Syria was destroyed by Islamists before the Crusader interventionYes they had F-16s, F-15s, MIG-35s, SU-30s, GBUs and ballistic missiles and they bombed themselves using them, to destroy the whole Arab and Muslim world.
hey, you're not fooling anyone no matter how much you shout and threat. You are nothing but a failed, warrant state that has a difficult time to deal with a simple storm. I won't be surprised if one Lebanese politician would blame the storm on Syrian refugees. Refugees which your crusader friends helped displace them to your precious country Lebanon.
