So why May? Is it a message to LBCI or a message to every Lebanese, to all of Lebanon? Is it because LBCI was allocating more air time for Seniora's visit in the U.S. than that of Lahoud's? Is it because of what is happening on the Mehlis front and his visit to Damascus?...And the list of questions goes on.
I wish I was in Lebanon right now and today to be able to flock to Martyr's Square for the demonstration this evening. May Chidiac touched a sensitive nerve; so far all of those who have been targets for assassinations have either perished or came out alive, alive but whole. May came out alive yesterday but not whole and this strikes a bitter, angry, distressed, and painful nerve inside of me.
She is that nation that they want to kill inside of us; the Lebanon they want to amputate from our hearts, from our bodies. They have been twisting and twisting the tourniquet around our limbs for so long now. We are a nation in limbo. We are waiting for Godot, waiting for the Truth. And while we wait, the blood flow to our limbs is starting to weaken, just in time for amputation.
What can we do? The Lebanese blogosphere has been on leave for a while (include me on the list). While I wait for Godot, I have been found guilty of turning my eyes and head away from Lebanon; my heart still there, but excuse human nature that awaits an action to react.
If today no one shows up to Martyr's Square, perhaps then it would be time to pack the bags and leave the Lebanon. Is it too late? Is it too late for us, the Lebanese youth? Have we been desensitized all already? Will Hizbullah, Amal and FPM youth be there? Will they stand hand-in-hand with the Future, LF, and PSP and others to say "ENOUGH!"? To say that this is going too far, that Lebanon is being targeted, not only a person?
I wait with much anticipation. Mind you, that fear has sunk once again in people's hearts, fear of death, fear of saying the truth, fear of saying "Souriyya, Tla3i Barra!"
Even journalists today on TV had to make a decision, to say or not to say it all. I personally pray for Faris Khashan's life; he almost has put his life in God's hands as he lashed out fiercely and openly on TV today morning against "Al Kouloub Assawada'" (the black hearts.)
We are fighting a war here; are we aware of this? We are fighting our war of LIBERATION!
Allah Yihmeek Ya Libnan!
