Today Minister Pierre Gemayel has been assassinated.
31 years ago, an attempted assassination on Pierre Gemayel, the grand father, sparked a civil war that lasted 15 years.
The fallout of that war continues till this day.
Yesterday I remembered Gebran Tueini. I disagreed with most of Gebran’s ideas, but I used to watch him and listen whenever he spoke.
He was like an antithesis, a catalyst instigating the thought process, causing the rethinking of ideas taken for granted.
Pierre Gemayel was starting to fill the gap that Gebran left. Now he is gone.
Who the fuck would want make Pierre a martyr?
Assassination is wrong. Today is another sad day on the road to destabilization.
We are walking a thin line. We expect tough times ahead.
May his mother’s heart, his family and children find peace some day.
