Nationally… confused

April 15, 2011

A growing controversy rose after the NewTv report[youtube]( which have been rampaging awkward news for a while) that the Lebanese National Anthem is a rip-off …

blogosphere shouts:

The Lebanese National Anthem: Plagiarized (@GinoRiady)

in defense of the national anthem, our pride, and google (@myrz_m)

النشيد الوطني اللبناني..لبناني

Why our Lebanese anthem is NOT copied…

in return NewTv broadcasted a continuum to the report [youtube], stating that new documents surfaced that stand to show that the Lebanese National Anthem may not be plagiarized … i don’t know if it’s only my opinion, by this “surfacing” of documents should have been done prior to jumping in front of camera…
Lebanese Media Scoring another fail.

The (2nd) Report states that a “government” committee has been established to investigate this claim, and to put an end to this confusion… a committee = money = excuses for more deficit in budget , i’d rather we live with what we have, for two reasons:
1. no committee has proven competent or brought any outcome
2. Arab history in general is very badly documented, Lebanese history is horribly disputed!! we are a few years away from a century old country with no unified history book… chances are, unifying this story will be yet another matter of lengthy dispute ..

so.. we are better off without it.

    you just made my day! (well yeah… it’s morning here)
    though i think the surfacing of documents so quickly could mean they weren’t hidden that deep all along!
    kudos for those who doubted the report then! and i think this says something about the reliability of politically opinionated media.
    however i disagree, i think we should know more about are history, i mean we’re like amnesiacs aw2at…
