Important update: Advised by hilal, this very good post by Jij, that sums up in a much nicer way (that man can write!) the current situation. I advise you to read it carefully, I basically agree with everything he says. Now if you still want to read a similar opinion but written in a much more hectic language, and obscure syntax, please continue below:
I have been scanning Lebanese blogs in a desperate attempt at seeing some sense of wisdom. I guess there isn’t. Of course there are exceptions, but the point is, that the majority of the Lebanese bloggers have just got it wrong. And if these guys are the “intellectuals” and the “thoughts” inscribed on the internet of what the Lebanese thinks then may the gods help us.
Please tell me how on earth a party who by now has enough mobilization strength and coalitional force to topple the government by taking it to the streets decides to take out a minister of this government? (allegedly because this would mean that there will be less people in the government against this party) This is not videogames people!
Tell me how on earth a country who is allied with a party who could finally maybe change the power structures of the country would take out a minister, because accordingly there will be less of a guy to ask for the international tribunal, that was put on hold in any case awaiting the outcomes of the demonstrations. And now apart from the fact that the international tribunal is back on track, there are no demonstrations aside from angry Christians smashing their own neghborhood, signalling more divisions within Christian ranks, and thereby weakening the chief Christian ally (needed for a union) of the above mentioned suspect.
Someone wants you to think this way. Don’t let it get to you, because you’re going straight towards the fragmentation of this country. There is still a chance to change things. Think union not division, now is the time, end these silly quarrels. The more political actors think you can be divided the more killing uselessly will be instrumental.
