Two insights I want to share with you this day:
1) Thank you May, thank you! You have revived a revival, a youth revival and unity. Today student representatives of political parties across the spectrum have decided to gather tomorrow in Martyr's Square/Freedom Square at 6PM to say "Enough!" Amal, Hizbullah, LF, Future Movement, FPM, PSP, the Commoners Movement, and others, all have gathered and agreed on common denominators, agreed to carry one flag--the Lebanese flag.
What May is doing, the late Hariri has not done even. Is it all a show? Or are we seeing a genuine move?...To be seen. But there is hope.
2) Second, it seems that a new term has been coined in Lebanon which reflects our trying times at the moment--everyone is calling it now: The War on Terrorism. Interesting...This is all new.
PM Seniora today lashed out at Al-Manar reporter when the reporter talked about replacing a "wisaye" (tutelage) for another "wisaye". Seniora said that there is no "wisaye", that this is the era of when the Lebanese rule themselves by themselves. He added that we the Lebanese will win this war on terrorism and that he has been soliciting the help of Egypt, Qatar, France, the U.S. and the U.N. in the field of counter-terrorism. He claimed that terrorism is a phenomenon faced by countries way before we were struck by it.
So...we're in a war (even Pierre Daher of LBCI said it), a war on terrorism and we will win.
"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."
