Syrian Karma

* For over 30 years we have endured what you are JUST beginning to endure.
* For over 30 years the world stood silent towards the blatant abuse your regime is now inflicting upon you (after many years of practice).
* For over 30 years my country was run to the ground so that the same murderous family could keeps its power and insures its survival.
* For over 30 years fear prevailed, violently silencing the strongest of opposition voices.
* For over 30 years mothers wept (and many are still weeping) awaiting closure on the fate of their long lost sons.
* For over 30 years many have waited for this day in silence !

There is (and there should be) a part of every Lebanese rejoicing in the saying :“what goes around comes around”; but somehow this “festive” feeling is dampened by the savagery the Syrian regime is inflicting upon its own people. Such criminal acts (in some twisted feeble minds) could have been justified when done by an “occupying” power against even a “sisterly” state; but harder to digest when such cruelty is inflicted against your own people (not to use the words “your own kind”).

Today (and yesterday) I feel with my (hopefully repenting brothers and sisters) who remained silent to our plight for over 30 years.

To those very same Syrian brothers and sisters I call for “Tawhid al massareyn”; in the fight for DIGNITY and freedom.

To my brothers and sisters in Syria I say :

“I forgive your silence over 30 years; better late than never. Keep up the fight and maybe one day (hopefully soon) we can both regain our dignity; DEMARCATE borders and LIVE AND LET LIVE. Keep up the struggle, and once you achieve your freedom, no need to apologize for your silence and your past complacency; it’s all in the past!

For the time being, as a Lebanese who witnessed firsthand the power of the Syrian regime’s “boot”, I am rooting for you; don’t let me down. I have no aspirations whatsoever to be “invited” to your country as “KOWAT AL RADE3” and spend 30 years pillaging, murdering, and making you feel that your security and stability depends solely on the whimsy of our local dictatorial (which is not the case) president ELECTED FOR LIFE !
