What I See (and wish I didn't)

It seems like in 2005, when people were in the streets demanding 10452km2 of Lebanon for the Lebanese, I didn’t read the fine print which said 10452km2 of Lebanon full of sectarianism and power to the parties. Maybe the cameras did have to zoom in instead of zoom out. Instead of concentrating on the masses, we maybe should have focused on what these people were calling for.

To me, it seems like these people were calling for the right to honk the LF honks and the FPM honks again.

To me, it seems like these people were calling for the right to hang up posters of warlords.

To me, it seems like these people were calling for the right to kill someone they disagree with.

To me, it seems like these people were calling for the right to claim how (fill in religion here) they are.

To me, it seems like these people were calling for a civil war again.

I wish I was blind so I wouldn’t see…

You all must've read this a thousand times, but once more is never too many. Hands up for "Pity the Nation" as our new national anthem (sung to the tune of "Shouf il Wawa, Bous il Wawa"):

My friends and my road-fellows, pity the nation that is full of beliefs and empty of religion.
Pity the nation that wears a cloth it does not weave, eats a bread it does not harvest, and drinks a wine that flows not from its own winepress.
Pity the nation that acclaims the bully as hero, and that deems the glittering conqueror bountiful.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice save when it walks in a funeral, boasts not except among its ruins, and will rebel not save when its neck is laid between the sword and the block (not even).
Pity the nation whose statesman is a fox, whose philosopher is a juggler, and whose art is the art of patching and mimicking.
Pity the nation that welcomes its new ruler with trumpetings, and farewells him with hootings, only to welcome another with trumpetings again.
Pity the nation divided into fragments, each fragment deeming itself a nation.

Calling for a civil war again? It was a call for a revolution, for independence and freedom.
