Sometimes, a generation is faced with times of trail, at the turn of tides, where they have to react, so that they can either take there appointed place between Nations, or fail as generations past have indeed failed. Our generation have been faced by a lot, and until now we’ve very successfully failed!
A red day dawn upon us, stained by the blood of women and children. During the last week, the World along side our very own leaders have proved to us all over again, that the life of an Arab person, be it Muslim or Christian, Man, Woman, elder or child is of no value what so ever in this dwindling time… and that the value of one Israeli SOLDIER or even two, is in the “international law of the lawless” is equaled by hundreds (if not thousands) of Arab civilian lives.
The west once again, redeems it’s 500 years of anti-Semitism, by letting Israel commit unto us what ever crimes that it’s whims imply. This only proves the obvious: Dignity, Honor, Human Rights and Freedom are not given, they are only acquired, and our governments have acquired us none! Should we follow the path of our fathers and stand in silence while once more our very own blood flows to stain our generation as it stained the ones before?
Gaza is being bombarded even as I write this, casualties are numberless, the members of Palestinian Government are imprisoned, electricity have been cut off for over a week now, the water is contaminated and the whole Gaza strip is being starved to death. And yet the world turns a blind eye on what could possibly be the worst humanitarian crisis and genocide of our time!
On the other hand Lebanon, a peaceful country that never assaulted any neighbor, have been plagued by a monstrous, atrocious and evil cancer at it‘s very border… The Lebanese people, awoke to the kind of news they thought they had put behind them. Their brand-new airport, had been bombarded by Israeli war planes along with a host of other infrastructure projects, bringing death and devastation on a more than Gazan scale. More than 200 civilians killed until now, the numbers are expected to double during the next couple of days.
This is only a re-play of a bleak winter day in 1968 when, out of the blue, helicopter-borne Israeli commandos landed on the old airport and blew up 13 passenger jets, almost the entire fleet of the national carrier. The pretext: of two Palestinians who killed an Israeli at Athens airport, one came from a refugee camp in Lebanon , then an entirely peaceable country. The significance of this most spectacularly disproportionate reprisal was something the Lebanese could hardly even have guessed at then. But it was a very early portent of the long nightmare to come: Israel ’s military occupation and decades of conflict, eventually compounded with an atrocious civil war that it did much to engender.
There is something ominously similar, in possible consequences, about yesterday’s repeat Israeli performance. Ever since the Israelis ended their occupation of southern Lebanon in 2000, this weak and diminutive country has enjoyed an almost unmarred respite from the turbulence of the region to which it so easily and habitually falls victim. But overnight it has been plunged back into the role it endured for a quarter century and more – that of hapless arena for Israeli crimes.
Meantime the ever vigilant USA, have stood by Israel’s right to defend itself, in a mockery that is equaled only by their use of Veto in the UN to prevent Ceasefire & Peace in Gaza or Lebanon! To prove to us that the only countries they care about are the ones with oil reserve! And that the only model of Democracy that the US Government cares for is the one they very efficiently applied in Iraq , The Democracy of the Puppets!
Infact the whole so called civilized world, have failed to help Lebanon (maybe the only true democratic nation in the region) and stand for the sovereignty of that nation. Infact what takes place now, only a year and a couple of month Rafiq al-Hariri murder (14 February 2005), Shed’s more suspicion on an already questioned death.
A year back after the assassination of Rafiq al-Hariri the Righteous Savior of Democracy along side it’s minions (and surprisingly Israel itself) jumped on the (Lucky) opportunity and started harassing Syria to pull it’s army out of south Lebanon under the umbrella “Protecting the sovereignty of Lebanon” a statement that sounds more like a joke now, even more than when it was initially said!
With the Syrian army out of the south, what remains is Hezb-allah to fight for Lebanon, and this group have been sanctioned and singled out as terrorist, although they are infact the ones behind ending the Israeli occupation and the civil war, and acquiring Lebanon’s freedom and democracy, which afterwards (and unlike any other militant uprisal, including our very own so called revolution) they gave back to the people and joined the election to end up winning a number of parliament chairs.
If you have doubts as to why is such a group called terrorists? Instead of being celebrated as rebels? Well the answer is they are an Islamic group, hence they are evil, plus they have vowed to free Palestine … what a hideous thing to think!
Therefore they are part of the “Axis of Evil” described by the Retard Monkey A.K.A G.W. Bush… and they are the ones to blame for what is happening now in both Gaza and Lebanon !
Once again we are the victim and ones to be blamed!
If we are the victims and the murders, well then let us be the murders they say we are, before being the victims they want us to be….
Let us not fail Lebanon and Palestine as the ones before us did, because if we do, our children (if infact we’ll ever live to have any with the rate this is going) will look down on us as we do! What are we waiting for? Our turn? Because if we fail to re-act, make no mistake, our turn will come!!!
