Listen

Yesterday I was passing through the student center, and the television happened to be turned on CNN.
I didn’t stop. I walked by.
“Hezbollah are clearly in breach of international law here, Anderson.”
“Kiss Ekhtak”
Who just shouted? There’s no one else around. It was me.
I am glad I don’t have cable in my apartment.

Visions of Iraq.
Visions of Palestine.

Listen.
We’re not stupid.
Hezbollah doesn’t get its weapons supplies from Jounieh port. Or from Beirut international airport. Or from Batroun.
The 20 dead in Marwahin were not hit by mistake yesterday. Nor were the victims of today.
They’re not massacring us to pressure the government to act. They know the government is powerless. They’re not stupid either.

This is not about two soldiers. It was planned long before.

They’re punishing us. They’re collectively punishing us for not bending over like so many stronger people have done before. They’re punishing us for resisting them, for saying no, for standing up. They’re punishing us for kicking them out in 2000.

They want to break us. They want us to beg them for mercy; they want us to turn against each other.

Listen.

Hezbollah did not murder 116 Lebanese civilians. Israel did.
Hezbollah did not destroy Haret Hreik. Israel did.
Hezbollah did not cut us from the rest of the world. Israel did.
Wake up. Forget that Hezbollah are Shias. We’re all targeted.

This is what Israel is saying: “Look, you can’t resist. We know we occupy your land and breach your sovereignty whenever it pleases us. We know we illegally operate in your country, assassinate people, and kidnap fishermen, and murder entire families “by mistake”. We don’t give a fuck. We’re much, much stronger than you. You can’t exercise your legal right to resist our injustice. If you dare resist, we’ll break you. You have to shut the fuck up and live by our own terms. You have to disarm your own resistance, and ensure our own security.”

Listen.

You can’t destroy a resistance. As long as there’s injustice, there will be a resistance. It’s not going away. You can shell us for ten years, it’s not going away.

Everybody’s against us. Nobody will help.
The sky is raining death.
We can’t do anything about it; it’s not the first time.

Listen.

Don’t believe appearances, we’re a strong people.
You blow up airports, ports, buildings, and infrastructure. It hurts, but we’ll build them again. We’ll move on.
You kill many of us. It’s atrocious, it’s unbearable. We’ll never forget them, and we’ll never forget what you’ve done. And we’ll move on.

You’ll give up first. And you’ll negotiate. And you won't have accomplished anything. Except a lot of killing and destruction. Except making us hate you more.

Long live Lebanon.

The verb resist returns in your post many times.
Resisting, resistance, resist.
Glorious indeed.

The only thing I did not understand is what was HA/Lebanon resisting, until 3 days ago, but I guess it's just me.

Only this time, after you finish bitting the shit out of Israel again, maybe consider doing less resisting and more country building.
unless you prefer resisting.
After all that's where glory and pride is.

LONG LIVE THE RESISTANCE

Samir Kuntar should be in jail forever. Why the hell was he worth killing eight soldiers, and bringing all this destruction onto Lebanon?

Why the hell were two Israeli captives worth getting more Israelis killed and wrecking a moderate Arab country?

Stupid pride.

I tell you what you must resist. You must resist the devils of Hezballah from using the south of your lands to attack another soverign neighbor. Until you learn to resist that, your life will always return to this kind of mess.

Resist, for sure. But be smart and resist the devils that bring the living hell down on your heads with their rediculous rhetoric and cross-border atrocities.

Israel has no reason to fight you if they are simply left alone to build as well. Open your eyes, Oh sons and daughters of Lebanon, and see the devils among you who bring such carnage to your home.

Jij,
There is no doubt that your words were nicely crafted and that you are frustrated and angry by the destruction that engulfs us , sf you should be. But may I suggest that emotionally charged statements do not contribute to a deep understanding of the issues, cool, calm and logical thinking does. Rejecting the tactics of the Israeli armed forces in their current(3rd or is it 4th) invasion of Lebanon should not lead us to endorse the activities that were responsible for unleaching the present destructive wave. Any rational analysis would suggest that HA is indirectly responsible for the 116 deaths, for the destruction of Harit hraek, for the whole mess that we are in. Furthermore it is clear that had Lebanon done what any self respecting country would consider its main responsibility; send its regular army to its borders then this current conflagaration could and would have been avoide. Let me also suggest that it is a fantacy to believe that a democratic state can be built with the help of parties that do not believe in the viability of the system. And please, I beg you, do not express positions either for or against HA or any body else for that matter in sectarian terms. My oppositin to HA has nothing to do with their faith, they could be devil worshipers or polytheistic for all what I care. The argument against HA is a purely logical, rational,ideologicall position. You cannot bring in a partner to build a project to which that partner is opposed. Ha, even in the Sheikh Hasan Nasrallah statement of this afternoon ( if the press reports are true) stated that HA is waging this fight on behalf of all Arabs.

My point jij, is that my heart bleeds just as much as yours does over the daily and hourly destruction of Lebanon but I prefer to look at this issue as a whole and not intwo separate parts. To create a modern and sovereign Lebanon then no group of people should be above the law and the government is to act as to protect and uphold the law of the land. That can mean only one thing, no room for the arms of HA, no room for HA representatives in the cabinet unless they become a majority, and obviously; its a no brainer; a strongcondemnation of the Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty.

jij...you've said it right..We shall never forget...AND THE Israelis will be punished one day for their actions.

"ghassan" are you in lebanon listening to the bombing?...did your mother cry today and your sister freak out?.....was your house shaken by bombs? did your parents move form their town for fear of being bombed?...WAS ANY OF YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS KILED BY THE iSRAELIs?Are you stuck out of your house in some uncomfortable place?

...If your answer to the above is NO...then spare us...

Hizbulah are people and lebanese...who have a strong faith and fear of GOD...whatever they think or do..they don't deserve all this...and we as patrioitc lebanese don't desreve it either.

BTW i'm not muslim...and neither with Hizbulla...i'm a humanitarian..and after all that israel has destroyed and killed...you can't think logical anymore...

All this has proved that Lebanon should be stronger in the future to be able to deter them and shoot down Israeli planes.

Xylocaine,
If there is ever a time to be cool and logical it is in a time like this. We must strive to see through "the fog of war". Anyway this might not be the time to get into a personal discourse but since you have asked me a series of questions, I feel compelled to answer. The answer is yes to most of your questions except for the loss of life of a family member. You might find this difficult to believe, but I am very serious when I say it, the loss of life to a family member is not more devastating than the loss of life to any member of the human race. So please spare me that old fashioned tribal idea that I am supposed to bleed only if a close family member is hurt and give a %^$# about when other humans are hurt.

Ghassan...you got it wrong...i didnt lose a family member in the last raids till now....but i do feel a grudge when i see all those people dying and humiliated... and i see a lot in my profession as a doctor at hospital.

"Old fashioned tribal" do you mean to say you cry everytime you see a person dies the same way you would cry if your...God forgive.... parents die?...come on.....

I'm against the war...and it's causes...but we are much beyond that point now...it's Lebanon...Lebanese army and Lebanese people that are being killed....there's no place for logic here.

It sounds to me like you would love to have more war and terrorism against Israel. Lebanon doesn't deserve what's happening to her, but people like you bear some responsibility. You love unnecessary "resistance" well, that's war no matter what euphemisms you use, no matter what lies you tell.

Grow the fuck up and call for peace. Peace isn't humiliation, and that "resistance" you love so much is just so much destruction, war and hatred. Join the human race.

Face it Lebanon, you are screwed. Face up to that reality.

Are you sovereign or not? If yes, then your country has declared war on Israel, and Israel is fully justified in fighting back in that war--this includes bombing anywhere that is called Lebanon.

If no, then you do not have a country, and Israel is fully justified in entering and occupying an area of land that you are not in control of that is filled with people you bear no responsibility for who are attacking and declaring their own war on Israel.

Right now you are trying to have it both ways and guess what: Israel is doing the same. So if you want Israel to stop its war against you, you must control and stop the parts of your country that are waging war with Israel, or you have to surrender the sovereignty of your entire country to whomever CAN control it: Hezbollah, Israel, Syria...
