7.8.06

It just got (more) personal


My second cousin is in the army. Or was.
He was stationed in Tyre, to man a prehistoric anti-aircraft gun that could only intimidate migrating birds.
He heard Israeli choppers flying in to drop commandos in a civilian area.

We don't know if he actually managed to get a round fired off or not.
Moments later he became a charred body in a destroyed vehicle.

In my heart, I know his death served no purpose.
He is fodder to the raging inferno of death and hate sweeping Lebanon, leaving ash and dust in its wake.

But when his toddler kids grow up, and ask me what happened in 2006, I will say he died a hero.

Would they understand the truth? Would they forgive us if they did?

Ramzi,
I am so sorry for your loss... He died a hero. I do think they will forgive us if we reach a peace treaty with Israel. I am too optimistic...

why are you saying his death served no purpose??
He is for sure a HERO, defending his country.
one thing more, if he was with the heros beating that fruitless dropping round Sour city, so allow me to send a message to his kids telling them that your father made all of us all around the Arab nations 'yes beleive it there is something called Arabs yet" totally PROUD, and please tell them we are proud of their heroic father.
GOD BLESS YOU.

Moral culpability compels me to respond. The destruction of Lebanons infrastructure results in nothing less than rightous indignation. Neither God nor man could be pleased at the destruction that has taken place. The rightous will stand in the face of those that afflicted them. A mighty wind is blowing on those that afflicted you. The merciless murderers of the innocent will be destroyed. But the just must be mercifull and that is your fate. Although the unjust won't be entirely pardoned, they should have known better. The innocent will overcome the destroyer, but not with strength nor arms, but with words.

Hello i am Stefanos(24) from Greece and i would like to tell you that i am very sad and angry with the pictures that i see from Lebanon in news and via web sites on the Internet.What the hell costs the human life for some bastards that puts oil on the fire in the Middle East? I understand that the conditions in there are the worst possible. I have cried during this days with these pictures. I know that i can just think of you as i don't live this. We sent you help (medicines,food etc) and i hope to receive them. I also hope this hell to stop soon. The Greek mass media as well as the Greek people support you and believe in a future without war in your area, based on a free and independent Lebanon, on a free and independent Palestine.

Our hearts are with you.

He died doing his job, Ramzi. It might serve no purpose, but it is the most noble kind of death.

Alla yir7amo ...

Needless to say -
Nassrala killed your cousin.
Nassrala killed 3 arab citizens in haifa yesterday.

WHY CAN'T OUR LEBANESE GOVERNMENT STOP THIS BLOODY MAN?!

I'm ver sorry for you loss Ramzi.

Maybe you'll find some comfort when reading the testimony of
Saed Bannoura, one of the millions of victims of the Israeli Army.

Here’s his story in his own words:
