From Bachir Gemayel, Elie Hobeika, Samir Geagea, to Jocelyne Khoueiry... no one glorifies criminals better than the Maronites. Jens 3atil w namroud.
This is the trend among the Lebanese population.
glorifying civil war leaders. not just among the Maronites, also among the left, the Muslims and the Druze.
Hey, if the Shiites get to erect every street corner with a blown-up image of a fallen Persian general, then the Lebanese Maronites deserve the same....
Lord knows how much I despise the Iranian regime, but those generals you speak of are part of a regional war, in which Hizbullah is involved.
This is different than ethnic cleansing or killing people on the basis of religion.
When did HA kill other Lebanese because they're from another religion or massacre hundreds of innocent people in a refugee camp?
There are, no doubt, Christians who took up arms to protect their towns.
But Kataeb were looting property and killing people on ID under the pretext of "Christian resistance".
The very fact that Bachir Gemayel, Geagea, and Jumblat are still glorified as heroes, is an indicator that many Druze and Maronites, are very morally corrupt.
You'd be hard pressed to find a Sunni or a Shiite who boasts about their participation in the war.
Even though Shiites fought Palestinians, they still sympathize with their plight.
If not for the Palestinians, Mourabitoun or Amal, Lebanon would have kept its role of the Switzerland of the Middle East and we would be competing with Israel in Space exploration.Did the Persian General take part in a civil war that targeted Maronites?
