    The rule of the unlawful is dominating in Lebanon, where the criminals rule and ask for their rights and insist on demands and if not given those rights and demands their supporters go to the streets to disturbe the normal life of people. The logic of the illogic…Bunch of ignorants holding the country in hostage….from the HA gang to these burning tires thugs.
