Response to Marsden’s comment to my post
Marsden replied to my previous post as follow:
"Their entry in 1976 was to rescue the right-wing Maronite sectarian forces, and their withdrawal today will empower the right-wing Maronite sectarian forces." - As'ad Abu Khalil
So the least you can do is thank them for keeping your kind in power.
First I am sad that some people still think in these terms and still have a war mentality.
Second this is my response to Marsden:
My kind?? What do you mean Marsden? Are you implying that everyone who is feeling happy with the Syrian withdrawal is a right wing Maronite??
Do you mean that because I am happy that we no longer are under the mercy of the Syrian intelligence agents, I am a right wing Maronite!
It is clear that you are not living in Lebanon, that you have not felt the humiliation of living under the rule of the Baathist regime and its goons.
So again I am happy, and I congratulate every Lebanese for the withdrawal of all foreign troops from Lebanon. And I do not thank the Syrians for anything!!
As a side note, although I am loathe to say it, I am a Muslim Sunni from Saida and I am proud of being first and foremost a Lebanese who want to live and enjoy Peace, Prosperity and Freedom in Lebanon.
So Marsden you are wrong on all account and believe me I feel much closer to any right wing Maronite who shared with me the same humiliation and hardship under the Syrian rule, than to you!
