Whose Lebanon?

January 22, 2011

Lebanon: The Syrian-Saudi agreement failed due to American interference. Turkey & Qatar Met to help find a Solution but they failed. France hopes we find independence & sends Its recommendations. Egypt supports our Democracy. 14 March Bloc that is Western Supported. 8 March Bloc thats is supported by Syria-Iran. Israel fears that the current neighbouring situation might affect its economy. Saudi Arabia stops its (financial) support to Al Harriri.

Almost the only place where it takes the whole world to have a government. The Whole WORLD. except the Lebanese.

Do we really need the rest of the world to run OUR Lebanon?

Whose Lebanon are we fighting for?

your thoughts…

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: We’re a country, but I don’t think we are a nation. As far back as I can remember in all the Lebanese history books I’ve read, there has always been two sides, each reaching out to a different higher power to try to gain the upper hand in Lebanon.

    The players have changed over the years, the powers have too, but the division has remained. We don’t align ourselves with each other to improve our common living conditions, but we are more than happy to try to improve the conditions of our own “people” (sect, region, you name it), even if it comes at the expense of the rest of the country’s population.

    We have brought bigger and bigger players into our own little games, players who originally had a vested interest in meddling with our affairs. The sad thing is, Lebanon was never ours to begin with (if you think of “us” as the entire Lebanese population). It has always been a game of numbers, even when they drafted the first borders of Lebanon before the independence.

    You can’t speak of OUR Lebanon, because Lebanon has yet to be claimed by a nation, and until that happens, it is not really ours, and it’s no wonder we are not the ones running it.

    Okay I know that was awfully pessimistic…

    I agree totally with Fadi: we are not a nation. It is a pitty (and a shame) that the lebanese politcians await instructions from outside the borders to deal with problems inside the lebanese borders. It is also a shame on the lebanese people, who (repeatedly) install these politicians at the head of the state.
