Can someone explain to me why Hizbullah and Amal are not taking part in tomorrow's funeral of our martyr Gebran Tueni? Why?
Aoun's FPM have joined forces starting yesterday. Despite political differences, all Lebanese factions have joined hands to repel destruction, death, and hate. But where are the Shiites? Where are they? And why are they absent from this movement?
This is not about Syria; it's about a Lebanese martyr. This is a lowest common denominator; and if Hizbullah/Amal do not see eye to an eye with this lowest common denominator, then what is there to agree with them on?
As MP Bassam Sabeh said, he usually takes different political stances than his sect (the Shiite sect), but now he pleaded to Hizbullah and Amal not to alienate themselves from what is Lebanese.
Yesterday, in DC's candle light vigil, all political party representatives were present. This unity reminded me of the candle light vigil that was held last February, the same day the late Hariri was murdered. As political calculations entered into the equation, especially during the parliamentary elections, I witnessed less and less of that unity. But now, we all held hands to say no more. We saw that FPM can oppose a government, but will hold hands with everyone when Lebanon is in danger...Then where is Hizbullah and Amal?
