They never said israeli ennemy.

In most lebanese people's minds israelis are not the ennemy. They are just an inconvenience due their non rapatriation of their pals.

Everone knows but few say it, the ennemy is Assad and Hezbollah.

What people dont realize is that the real ennemy of lebanon's economy is its public sector employees. This huge useless money spending machine that got hired to get current politicians reelected.

Kesrwan. Israelis want to be left alone. They even want to build a wall between us.

Assad is helping arming a milicia in lebanon, chosing brezidents, killing every lebanese leader worthy of his name

You cannot compare an inconvenience (israel) to a catastrophe (assad)

And no, i didnt take statistics. It is taboo in Lebanese media to not hate Israel systematically. And israel is a convenient scapegoat for populists politicians.But most everyone i know feels the same. Even shias.

Thanks Naharnet, it’s nice of you to take into consideration the readership’s comments. This shows you’re free and independent unlike many other media groups.

Lebanon-first, we don’t pick our family or neighbor. We have to make do. But you’re right, the Assads raped Lebanon over and over, occupied Lebanon for 33 years and abducted 20 000 Lebanese ...whom to this day are still missing. As for Iran, they’re arming a terrorist militia to serve its interests...

Russia and Japan are still technically at war, Nor Putin nor Abe call each other enemy nations yet Russia is still controlling Japanese territory and actually annexed.

Why? Because They’re much smarter than the average mitwele or uneducated Arab. Educated Lebanese don’t call Israel enemy despite our history with them. I have relatives who use the same vocabulary as you do, I can certify they are simple people, no school diplomas, no jobs either...

lol if you say so issa89. Don't expect me to arm myself and become like the most despised people in the country. You don't fight a terrorists organization with more terrorism. What I do is enlighten people by opening their eyes so they can finally wake up. This, however, doesn't really work on brainwashed people that are too far gone because they need psychiatrists.

Lebanon has only one enemy: hezbollah and its terrorist followers.

Issa if you were truly against Israel why dont you put your money where your mouth is and go do something about it? Most Lebanese want to live in peace and do not want to see harm come to anyone, yet you seem stuck on your thoughts of killing the enemy and calling others cowards. Please show us how truly committed you are to the cause and how brave you are the border is a few hours away from your da7yi. If not then I suggest you zip it and learn to respect the will of the rest of the Lebanese who do not want to live in war like your organization.

MF ( My Friend ) @Issa69:

You seem like a nice educated person, are you Christian by any chance?

The simple fact is that in the late 1980's the Lebanese Government of the time sent representatives to sit down face to face with Israeli representatives to try and reach a peace agreement, without any outide interference. Anybody who followed those talks knows that the Lebanese delegation returned home with the draft of an agreement, however when this was put to the then Syrian occupiers of Lebanon they were forced to tear up the draft.
It is now over a quarter of a century since Lebanon was freed from the Syrian yoke, so why has the agreement not been followed up?

Thumb s.o.s 22 June 2019, 14:45

Actually, Syria's occupying army withdrew from Lebanon in 2005... it's been barely 14 years. Politically, however, they still control many puppets which include the following: the Christian FPM, Marada, the Shia Hizbala, Amal, the multi sectarian SSNP (Syrian Social Nationalist Party), the Druze LDP, the Sunni PNO (Popular Nasserite Organization) and the list isn't complete yet.

The day these people become loyal to their country and only their country will be the day peace can be achieved with Israel.

After the assassination of Gemayel, Israel and Lebanon signed an agreement on May 17, 1983 which was a peace treaty in all but name. Lebanon signed the agreement but it was opposed by Syria. The agreement was conditional on Syrian withdrawal, which did not occur until April 2005. Much of the content of the treaty was contained in secret protocols and memoranda, and it did not win expected Jordanian and Saudi endorsement. The Lebanese legislature ratified the treaty by a margin of 80 votes, but in a very weak and unstable domestic position president Amine Gemayel abrogated the peace treaty on March 5, 1984 under unrelenting Syrian pressure, after the U.S. Marines withdrew and after Israel had begun withdrawing from Lebanon.

Phillipo if you truly want to see peace come to the valley then you need to be demanding that on the Kizb and Syrian websites not here. They are the ones who pray to die for war not us.

there's no freedom of speech on shia or syrian websites. moreover, they'd try to track his IP address in order to identify and get rid of him.

Education is the only way forward and you seem to lack some as well. Personal attacks are a mitwelian specialty they’ve demonstrated it many times, when they can’t challenge a valid argument, they eliminate the opposition. This is how weak they are, are you a heretic mitwele by any chance ? Because you certainly sound like one.
