Israel wasn't asking or waiting for permission from neighbors to do what was within their internationally-recognized rights. The world agreed; they recognized Israel. Neighbors had two choices: war or peace with new neighbor. They chose war. They lost. They suffer consequences. That's the way of the world. Israel bears no responsibility for the choice the Arabs made. You lost, get over it. You attacked the Jews thinking you can slaughter them all but they ended up whooping your dirty asses. Faja2nakom moo? Maybe if you prayed more.
two sides for the same coin. the similarities are uncanny. the jewish immigrating to palestine after allegedly having been persecuted in europe, took after gobbles and hitler and turned the gaza strip into what could easily be described as the largest mass concentration camp on the planet, while the palestinians under yasser arafat, after having been displaced by the zionists, had no qualms displacing a big chunk of the Lebanese population to settle in their place. it is safe to say that neither sides have managed to learn from their own afflictions. i hope HA will have the clairvoyance to avoid retracing these footsteps, conflicts should be brought to resolution instead of constantly inflating them, otherwise there will be no end to the misery in this region of the world. but until then HA's weapons can constitute a leverage instead of a burden, if the leadership chooses to support a cleaner and transparent mode of governing, or anything that does not reduce Lebanon into another yemen on the long run for that matter.
Dude no one will leave his home and the federal states will be based on geographical limits and not secterian.
We are looking forward to a secular or at least a civil state that is unified and solid
We even need regional integration with one passport, open borders, visa free travel, free trade, single currency etc.
It is quite evident from your post that you do not want Lebanon to develop into a modern, progressive state. You also want to enshrine sectarianism, divisions and even hatred into our existence and create and cement barriers to promote your sectarian apartheid policies.
Fighting corruption can be done in the context of the state. You cant mix fighting corruption on the one hand while propagating a political demand on the other. It amounts to backstabbing. And at such critical time, openly making such position amounts to nothing but betrayal. If this is the official stance of the FPM, then it is a major problem.
As i told u before federalism wont happen by force but by dialogue.....its starting but still shy... at least its circulating now and Berri had to attak it today in his speech....good start
Nasrallah and Berri's good cop - bad cop theater on FPM was tolerable for as long as the lira was still able to buy you a man2oushe.
The direct cause behind the imminent national catastrophe, corruption, embodied by the creepy mummy Berri, with HA's silent approval and notorious cover-up for the sake of not disturbing the "Shia peace", has finally hit the huge fan. Everyone is bound to suffer a tartoucheh.
In perspective, while FPM considered the MoU a strategical alliance, Maronite marriage style, HA clearly saw it a tactical move, an open-end zawaj mout3a signed agreement. You only need to review the agreement point by point to realize it was HA who betrayed everything in that agreement while FPM honored every point in it. Ziad Black is spoon-feeding you the painful reality rushing to devour you and your country in one cataclysmic bite. If you choose to keep basking in denial, and HA in the illusion that the issue of corruption has zero impact on them because their weapons are enough to safeguard their folks and preserve their power, then you're both in for a bitter surprise when famine comes knocking on people's stomachs at the final stage of the ongoing economic collapse.
Is samsara on state funds considered corruption? Tell Basil to return the commission he and his cronies made min wara el samsara and government contracts, especially on electricity.
For the sake of preserving some respect, when you don't have much to respond with, don't find yourself urged to say something, anything, for just moving lips duty. No one will punish you here if you admit your leaders suck and they bear a huge guilt in getting us to where we are today.
