Another Martyr buried, and they say that there is more...that the List is out and nothing can stop the Scheme. Who is next? It's a legitimate question.
In the past month, Jumblatt has become more and more isolated by the Maneuvers on the political scene. Does that mean something?

Yesterday night, Samir Franjieh's house was lit on fire!...Ghattas Khoury faces charges on an issue that has gotten larger than its mandated scale which has morphed into allegations of corruption...
With every Martyr who falls, the Crowds dwindle, the numbers carrying the Coffin shrink. It's the Old Tactic of All Times: Divide and Rule!

Do we deserve Freedom? And if Yes, then why are not we allowed to See its Light?
