So the March 14 Forces met in the Saifi Kataeb office this evening. They asked all March 14 supporters to attend en masse the late Pierre Gemayel's funeral on Thursday.
If I was back home, I would be reluctant to take part in the demonstrations on Thursday, for the fear things might just become violent. Things are not the way they were two years ago; now the situation is like a pressure-cooker, just ready to explode if given the chance to. The animosity is no longer entirely directed towards the Syrian forces, but now it's directed towards the other Lebanese.
Will the Lebanese be able to overcome the pressures and head out to demonstrate peacefully? I can feel the cry: Enough is enough. But as I wrote before, this tribunal when passed will become a milestone in the history of the Middle East. And I can totally understand why perhaps some regimes around us might see it disadvantageous to have the tribunal process move ahead and might just pull the plug on us and watch Lebanon return to chaos.
