Pro-Palestinian, Pro-Lahoud Lebanese, Speak Up!
Here we go again. It is like nothing happened in the past 30 years of Lebanese history. Palestinian arms and men are coming into Lebanon.
This post will be very short. My blood is boiling and want to be careful and take my time when commenting on this. There are many different aspects, but I want to focus on just ONE question. A few days ago I had this (recurring) exchange with a fellow blogger:
Blogger said (full exchange there):
"To support Palestinians, do we have to start out with a disclaimer that discusses our unending support for Lebanon?"
My answer was:
"YES, YOU DO. Given recent Lebanese history, you need to be very specific."
To those guys, the pro-Lahoud, and the pro-Hezbo camp: Let's hear it from you guys.
By that I MEAN, WHAT should be done in your view right HERE and NOW about these importation of ARMS and MEN ILLEGALLY in the camps. THAT IS THE QUESTION.
THE FOLLOWING ANSWERS ARE OFF SUBJECT AND MERE OBFUSCATION:
-The Palestinians got screwed in 1948
-The Abu Mazen Palestinian Authority does not condone this
-It is the Syrians' fault
All of the above are true but that is NOT the question.
To reiterate: What should the Lebanese STATE and its ARMY and other institutions do HERE and NOW ? (meaning before the Palestinian question is resolved).
Of course, your comments are welcome even if you don'y belong to the title categories.
Bonus Question, for fun only: What should the worthless Arab League say, not do. Because they only talk and even that doesn't matter.
