We should do yearly tests to check if one deserves to be Lebanese or Not.
Example:

1)Do you wage war all the time for the sake of syria,iran or religion?

2)Do you want to unify lebanon with syria?

3)Do you take money and weapons from Iran, and use it to start wars and cause killing of lebanese and destruction of lebanese economy?

4)Do you care for your religion more than for lebanon?

5)Is your head up Iran's and syria's ass?

6)Do you march like a goat whenever your leader tells you?

7)Do you hang the picture of iranian or syrian leaders on your wall?

8)Are you stupid enough to believe everything your leader tells you?

9)Are you proud to associate yourself with Syria!!!, knowing that syria killed lebanese, stole from lebanese, imprisoned lebanese and terrorized lebanon?

If any of the above answers is YES..then you don't give a dam about Lebanon.

I think we should change the questions a bit to more like

1) Would you allow Americans to enter Lebanon freely and accomplish mission as they wish?

2) Do you want to unify Lebanon with America and Israel?

3) Do you want to watch Israel grow in American weapons and destroy our country, while we sit down as a puppet for them on a 40 billion dollar debt?

4) Do you care for your money more than Lebanon?

5) Why is your penis in Condeleeza Rice, George Bush, and Jacque Chirac?

6) Do you keep imimtating other groups in Lebanon when you don't know why you are protesting?

7) Do you hang a big Dollar sign, with George bush sitting on your wall?

8) Are you stupid enough to believe everything your leaders tell you?

9) Are you proud to associate yourself with America!!!! knowing that America has detroyed peace in so many countries and has killed lebanese imprisoned lebanese had a war with lebanon?

10) Do you care if your government steals and lies all the time, and doesn't want to work with any other groups except itself and america?

If any of the above answers is yes...then you don't give a damn about Lebanon

since the above two commentators just cancelled each other out, i will comment on the language of the original post:
what double standards you have. if the current demonstrations were being conducted EXACTLY in the same fashion but by mars qatorze, you would have had a totally joyous and jubalant attitude towards them. But since a million people come out to support the opposition, you sense of defeatism is deflected to blame your countymen of treatery, just cuz you like the current politicians' smiles, slogans and banners.

ya ibn bint jbeil,

you may attempt to corner del in whatever box you want, but what exactly in the above post have you used as evidence in your eloquent yet disconnected comment?

cheers, and best of luck with everything,

Of course she has double standards because her standards apply to both disgusting sides of the fence. Wou ana I congratulate you ya ibn bint Jbeil for being a perfect example of what you so badly want to criticize.

I propose a 2-state solution like the one proposed for Israel...since that's the solution in the region. The Northern part of Lebanon will be "Lebanon" and the Southern part will be "Hezbollahstan." This models the partition of Palestine into "Jordan" and "Palestine" in 1922. Hezbollahstan will capitalize on their Divine Victory over the Zionist Entity because that warrants Divine Leadership. The boring

The boring Northern part of Lebanon knows no Divine Victory and will not reap the benefits of knowing Divine Leadership.

israel, ha! what an absurd concept.

Honestly speaking if u could seperate Lebanon in to 2 it would be great and a lot of peace, and the results would show of who feeds and defends their people and who feeds and defends themselves. One problem you can drive from south to north in 3 hours, how do you split a country so small into half? and maybe the north can be called Phoenicia or the United State of Faranca and the bottom Lebanon

the only thing you all can split in two pieces is your asscheeks.

Maybe I am missing something, but I just don't see how trying to make your country a puppet state of a neighbor or a theocracy, or block investigations into a high-profile assassination can in any way whatsoever be considered "fighting for freedom".

May the majority prevail in Lebanon, and may the price of oil drop below $10/barrel so that fundamentalist lunatics throughout the Middle East get booted out by people pursuing freedom, enlightenment, and prosperity.

Ya Ibn Bint Jbeil~
Excuse me, but where exactly did you see the slightest mention or insinuation to March 14?
What gives you the right to assume anything about my "jubilant and joyous" attitude?!

I'm sorry if you could not see it objectively, with the right spirit of sarcasm in which it was written. A jaded sarcasm tainted with disappointment, disillusionment and a tinge of hopelessness and surrender.

Just FYI, I think I was the only Lebanese who put a blank piece of paper in the ballots during the last elections, because I do not consider that any one of these politicians represents me.

I think I have the right to criticize all parties, and choose not to adhere to any of their ideals, because in my opinion NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM has the interest of LEBANON in mind.
What you, however, are not allowed to do, is pigeonhole me in a specific box because of such a sorry state of preconceived notions and ideas. I can't really blame you, this is how everyone is born and bred in this country... your adherence to a party is fed to you with your mother's milk.

In any case, my post was perfectly clear, as Lazarus and Fouad can attest, and I only bothered to reply to you because of my love of Lebanon, mish aktar.

Cheers, and long live Lebanon :)

hey, yeah, sarcasm and diappoitment, jaded disillusionment, hoplessness, me too! cool!
so we agree on something.

actually today i feel equilibriumiated. a sense of balance in the counry.
t3adalo, 1-1.

the first two reflected exactly what is this country is living through, defining their own nationalistic lebanon and claiming it is the correct way.

As well as those who are "advising" for a split? How come"? Becuase there is a balance of power or refuting to face the reality of this sectarian nation (them included?). And is it with "Lebanon"? I think the ad is fantastic from describing all the fanatics from both sides and sects.

Cheerios delirious, and nice statement, I agree with that, only difference that Lebanon as a Utopia is not that perfect. But going to the nationalistic framework (specially to those fanatics who want a Utopia Lebanon?) what about demolishing Sectarianism as a first step by solving it with the request of Civil Marriage as a starters? (remember all forms of clergy figures opposed it)

Best Regards

Delirious.. I love your post you.. and I agree with you 100%..

Unfortunately this is the true Lebanon… After reading the above comments, I'm sure that we will never be united as a Lebanese people.. and we won't be able to build Lebanon again.. there will be no Lebanese Nation anymore… Bassssssssss "bouwat 3alam majmou3in"

ha Ha HA HAAAA!

ur replies make me agree even more with delirious's post, mayb it should be: Souless Nationality for sale. Where is ur sense of belonging people? set ur LEBANESE ideas, not this country's or that...
AND ya ibn bint jbeil, i am not a march 14 person, but i can;t help laughing when u say they r even: 1-1. Don't people ever learn? it's a kids fight my father is stronger than your father, and my mother is stronger than your mother.... it's ENDLESSLY USELESS.
we get nowhere if those as**oles running our country don't get together and find a REAL solution for the DEEP S*** we r in.
Holidays just around the corner and there is no spirit going around, where is this economy going? how long will it hold?
I rili wanted to go down to the demo on friday, but cudn't get myself to, coz i'm fed up with all of this, there MUSt b some wise way to get to a REAL RESULt
