France, Australia, the US and other countries are evacuating their citizens from Lebanon. This is very troubling.
A good percentage (don’t know how much exactly) of Lebanese – including plenty of those who fueled the Cedar Revolution – have two nationalities.
I am one of those others who have only one nationality.
Yes I am a Lebanese only (soooo not iiinnnn).
And for some reason, which I myself do not understand (maybe a complex from my childhood), I did not seek another nationality.
Lebanese Only & Proud, ehh wallah.
[I have a dream of some entity that transcends the current borders but that’s beside the point now.]
And it seems that majority, if not all the Lebanese displaced by the Israeli invasion are also Lebanese Only & Proud.
There are about a million of them so far.
They will not be evacuated to any other country. They will have to stay in the public schools housing them for now.
They are standing tough. They do not hate NasrAllah whose popularity is on the rise in Lebanon. Olmert, Bush and Rice will not like this.
Ms. Rice declares that we are witnessing the “labor pains” of the birth of a new Middle East. [Birth pains?! Death is produced for God’s sake! By the way, does Ms Rice have any children?]
Similar statements were made just before the total destruction of Iraq and the killing of about 250000 Iraqi not to mention continuing suffering till this day.
A similar statement was also made before endless misery struck the Palestinians.
This statement was always accompanied by the evacuation of foreign citizens.
So I am expecting very difficult times ahead now that Ms Rice is the mother who is giving birth to us.
Today Israel destroyed a factory that produces pre-fabricated houses and a wool factory.
Add this to the milk factory, the bridges, the communication facilities, the homes, the trucks carrying medicine, the children, the cultural centers, hospitals, a mosque and a church and all the international laws and conventions etc…
Ms Rice and her boss are in direct control of the war.
Mr Olmert told his cabinet that it is going to be a long war.
Israel has been crossing the border into Lebanon during the past four years and killing Lebanese.
The definition of “terrorist” for Mr. Bush & Co is: anybody who criticizes or stands up to Israel’s aggression or incursions or anybody who does not believe in Bush.
All this leads to one conclusion:
We are part of Bush’s little plan for a Greater Middle East!
We are now officially “Lebanon the model.”
We are his “rebound” after Afghanistan and Iraq.
Are we “doomed”?
