i was thinking today about it .. the crimes of syrian regime in lebanon are numbered . the effect of this fascist style occupation to lebanon still evident in many aspect of lebanese cultural and political life ..
my question is , can the lebanese people overcome this dark period of its history in its way to built its national identity and political culture ..
are lebanese to agree to name it OCCUPATION = ? and are lebanese aware of the meaning of occupation ?

i can talk about the crimes comitted by this fascist regimes against the lebanese leftist.. from kamal junblat till george hawi.. just because they didnt accept its presence in lebanon from the begining they didnt accept their occupation agenda , unlike the other lebanese parties like amal , hizbala.
unfortunately many were killed by the syrians and their auxiliaries , and some were innocent civilians.

what is happening in syria now , is kind of predictable , due to the violent nature of this backward regime .

    These days are over. In regime areas now Lebanese treated better than Syrians. In fact we should be careful not to mistreat them (this happens on occasion and hopefully never).

    If you mean Syrian presence in Lebanon in the past, Lebanese were split about it obviously.

    No to anyone from the Syrian occupation era in our current government. Nasrallah can find someone else.

    Occupation. But as President Aoun once said, Syria in Syria is brotherly nation.

    Occupation. (a poll would be interesting)

    It was a military occupation for some, and a brotherly presence for others.

    It was a military occupation, now it is a "civilian" occupation.

    In other words, even if in the future they decide to unify the history book and say it was a "brotherly presence", i will still tell my children to teach their children that it was an occupation.

    Unfortunately, lying to each other's face in the name of national unity.

    It is like an arranged marriage.

    The problem is that Syria thinks Lebanon is an extension of their country and Assad senior use to refuse to open an embassy and acknowledge separation .

    What if they decide to say the Lebanese were split about it, without adopting either narrative ?
    Is that good enough for your grandchildren, or, will you teach them it was an occupation and those who say otherwise aren't Lebanese? :)

    This is what will be written in our future common history book. Nice scenario for national unity.

    I will tell them it was an occupation and those who said otherwise were Lebanese who supported and benefited from the occupation and called it "brotherly presence".

    Will it now? That would be great, and it is good for national unity if looking forward.

    No reason to perpetuate vendetta across generations, but this is an improvement conceding they are Lebanese :)

    Contrary to current FPM believes it was and will always be an occupation.

    Those who believed it was an occupation like Ziad Abs, Nadim Lteif, etc. are no longer FPM.

    FPM is now a neo 7ezb awmeh full of ppl like Bou Sa3b
