IF, you are LEBANESE

drapeau3

When open mindedness takes precedence.
When you acknowledge (and accept) the fundamental difference with your fellow citizens.
When political correctness is no longer the only priority.
When your past becomes a lesson to be learned.
When true patriotism is the way forward.
When over used slogans no longer move you.
When you accept that the enemy does lie within.
When your are convinced that your current leaders no longer represent your aspirations.
When you truly feel that your well being is being threatened and change is needed.
When you accept the fact that you have a say in your future.
When you stop taking the easy way out.
When you take a firm stand, a stand that reflects your own aspirations; and the Lebanon you would like to see your children live in.
When fear of obliteration is a consideration if you remain silent.

And yes you shouldn’t turn a blind eye or a deaf ear (IF you are Lebanese), when a turban wearing war crazed lunatic says out loud that he reserves the right to use ground to air missiles (which he might, and might not have) against whom he pleases, and anytime he pleases.

  3. Too bad that we as people have taken on a cynical point of view of our own identity. We have got to find ways to fight back against this trend and reclaim what is rightfully ours! Instead of complaining about our misfortunes, we should rise up and impose a change no matter what the sacrifices! No nation has ever been built on whining and complaining. Lebanon is a mess because its people are lethargic and passive and will continue to let the few and corrupt make decisions for the multitudes! Until that changes, we will continue to languish in mediocrity.

  4. @ Vor,
    The people did rise up at a certain point only to get disspointed once more. I do agree with you that the Lebanese like to complain a lot and would not do much in order to change their situation. I am not expecting a high turnot in the upcoming elections.Yes Lebanon is a mess but not only becausr its people are lethargic, but also because the people are always faced with a choice of a lesser of two evils, because it very foundation is rotten to the core…etc. NO I am not whining, I have tried more than once to make a change, and got hit over the head, I haven’t given up yet (and this is why I speak my mind on these pages), but honestly Ido not see any change coming round soon.

  5. I’m turning the problem in an other way : peoples who get arranged by the Lebanon actual attitud won’t let anything to happened … euh … ok … shit … sorry I return in French this sounds awfull 😦

    En gros je disais : Il y a des personnes/pays que la situation au Liban arrange bien (Iran/Syrie) ça leur permet de conserver une main mise, un contrôle indirect sur le pays.

    Si demain naissait une nouvelle géneration de Libanais prêt à s’investir en politique nationale et non en politique guerrière/clanique, alors ces nations tentaculaires perdraient tout contrôle sur le pays et y perdraient leurs intérêts.

    Ni la Syrie ni l’Iran ne laisserons jamais le Liban évoluer tant qu’ils y verront des intérêts stratégiques vis à vis d’Israël et des USA.
