Thank you Latuff for this caricature.
Lebanese Dead 220
Lebanese Wounded 850
Freeing the 2 Soldiers
This is the 7th day where israel is destroying Lebanon to free the two israel soldiers. To get a better idea about the techniques that israel is implementing, please check these photos. (Thanks ATC for the link)
If you want to see the remarkable progress that the israeli war machine is attaining by targeting "terrorists"(???), I advise you to check this post Not only they were once happy, they were also once alive. (Thank you Lazarus for this post.)
I was naive...
Last Wednesday, when israel started attacking Lebanon, I was expecting things to settle down in a couple of days, but now, after one week, I don't see any hope of a near solution. I was naïve; I thought that USA would press on israel to stop destroying the civil infrastructive of Lebanon and to stop killing the Lebanese civilians... Then USA encouraged israel to take vengeance; after all the children of Lebanon are terrorists, aren't they? Of course they are. Then Arab countries, KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), Egypt (Kingdom of Egypt), and the rest of the Arab kingdoms also justified israel's position. The only two countries that condemned israel's position were, Iran and Syria; but since both of these countries are listed as terrorists, no one cares for what they say.
Green Light has been Given Before
By now, I fully realize that the israeli plan was not the birth of the moment when Hezbollah captured the two israeli soldiers. This plan is old and goes beyond freeing two soldiers; it has been set before and they were waiting for the right moment to destroy Lebanon and torture the innocent Lebanese civilians as they see their country razed to the ground.
I also estimate that israel has long before got the green light to destroy Lebanon not only from USA, but also from the rest of the countries that matter, including Arab countries.
There is Lebanese proverb that says,
أنا وخيّي على إبن عمي، أنا وإبن عمي على الغريب
I am with my brother against my cousin, yet, I am with my cousin against the stranger.
It seems that we, the Lebanese, are failing to grasp this fact. Instead of standing one stand against israel, we are preferring to blame and blame. I do not support Hezbollah, but at the same time I don't think it is time to blame anyone. This time I am using this blog to invite all the Lebanese to work as a single hand, to stand one stand against the israeli aggression.
