Time for a New Revolution in Lebanon?

Over a million Lebanese , Chrstians, Druze and Muslims protestd in downtown Beirut on March 14, 2005 demanding Syria's withdrawal from Lebanon. Syria withdrew in April 2005 after 29 years of military presence

Lebanon, the tiny country on the eastern end of the Mediterranean basin may be small in size, yet it faces huge problems.

The country, which is made up of 17 different religious communities is still trying to find itself amidst an even more complex larger Middle East full of plots and sub-plots. And its leadership lacks the ability and the drive to establish order or to even provide electricity around the clock to its people.

Lebanon has had three revolutions and a slew of liberations in its rich history. The country was occupied by just about any power you care to name throughout the ages: Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Ottomans, French. Palestinians and Israelis. The country has also hosted a slew of foreign troops as part of either the Multinational Force (Americans, French, British and Italian) or the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), to which some 16 countries contribute forces.

More recently Lebanon is living through a different sort of occupation that could be perhaps more detrimental to the future of the country than all the previous occupations. This one is being carried out by short sighed and ego-centric politicians, who occupy government portfolios and seats in the national parliament.

Is it time for a new revolution? The Lebanese had their first revolt against the Ottomans, who incidentally, ruled the country for some 700 odd years. The second revolt came at the close of World War II when the Lebanese demanded their independence from the French Mandate. And the third revolution, labeled the Cedar Revolution, was just a few years ago when the Lebanese rose up and took to the streets, demanding the departure of Syrian forces from the country. The Syrian military left, albeit they left behind them legions of intelligence operatives. That revolution was hailed as a great success. It was quick, it was bloodless and it was effective. The Syrians up and left and the Lebanese regained their independence. Sort of.

But what is a revolution? And when does a revolution become regressive instead of progressive? Revolutions are supposed to change systems, ideally for the better. While the political system did change with the departure of the Syrian military, alas, the changes that ensued were not all beneficiary for the country. Yes, of course, it was great to have Syria quit Lebanon, but the problem arose when instead of supporting and rallying around a strong central government, giving it powers to quell potential trouble-makers, of which there is no shortage in Lebanon, every politician wanted to be king of the hill. Every clan leader began looking out for his fiefdom and plotting against each other in mannerism found in medieval kingdoms of Europe.

Successful revolutions bring progress and better the quality of life for the people in that country. For example, the 1776 American Revolution gave rise to the model of democracy that would be later applied to many other countries, though far from perfection as it might be. Or the French Revolution of 1789 which gave rise to the republic and to thinkers such as Voltaire who is reported to have said “I disapprove of what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Now compare that line of thinking to recent events in the Lebanese capital where a Shiite man tried to set fire to Al-Jadid TV because he disagreed with the way they were reporting the news on Syria. He was caught on tape and arrested. His friends and supporters started burning tires and blocking major roads in the capital, demanding his release.

What kind of message does this action send to the young people of the country? That it is alright to commit a crime when someone disagrees with your views? The demonstrations were organized — or at least sanctioned — by Amal and Hezbollah, two Shiite organizations. Both parties later denied any direct involvement, claiming the demonstrators were friends of the man arrested, who could have been members of the party but were acting on their own accord.

Hezbollah is part of the Lebanese government — an important part of the government. So in essence they were demonstrating against themselves? Anything is plausible in Lebanon, where a columnist reports on the English-language website Now Lebanon, life for the Shiites of Lebanon has taken a turn for the worse since Hezbollah has been in government. The Shiites in Lebanon are still at the bottom of the social-economic ladder and their image in the Arabian Gulf is tarnished, in great part because of the Party of God’s support of Iran and of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Getting a job in one of the oil-rich emirates — one of the main sources of job outlets for the Lebanese — has become impossible.

And with parliamentary elections just down the road the situation in unlikely to improve anytime soon. What this country needs is a new revolution. One in the field of education where the young people in this country are taught what is right and what is wrong. The question is who is going to do the teaching when the older generation can’t seem to differentiate between the two?

    Lebanon revolution is long been overdue but it was due to the strong suppression of Dog bashar and his lackey Nasrallah sponsored by the satanic regime of Iran. 

    The fall of Dog Bashar will be a game changer. Assad has many weapons and most of them will fall in the hands of the Syrian resistance then it will be distributed to Lebanon, Iraq etc. Assad is loosing control over the Libyan NATO rats which is jointly run by Iran and Syrian regime. So the Libyan resistance will get some arms from Libya too. This is a mess the dictators cause all around. Its peoples power , it will take some time for the ordinary people to learn how to operate those weapon. 

    The Afghans are closing in to give a final blow to the invading pigs and once the pigs are gone from there its going to be a bad news for Iran , Syrian regime and the Lebanese stooge. This event is slowly but steadily unfolding. None of these Muslim army will be backed by their corrupt government. These army is comprised with the oppressed people. Therefore their moral is high.

      What you think its all about Afghan and Iran will do the job on each other, the pigs you hate so much are getting the scene ready for them . Yes when they are gone the real pigs will tear each other apart.

        Iranian Regime change is coming …..

        Jaber bin Samra based on Nafi bin Otba reports that the Prophet(PBUH)said:”You will marsh against the Arabian Peninsula and Allah will open (conquer) it, then Persia and Allah will open (conquer) it. Then, you will marsh against the Romans’ land and Allahwill open it. Then, you will marsh against the Dajjal and Allah will open it.” Then, Nafi said (to Jaber): “O’ Jaber, we will not see the Dajjal emerge until the Romans’ land has been conquered (by Allah)”
        (Sahih Muslim and Ibn Majah)

        Abdullah bin Masud said that the Prophet(peace be upon him) said : ” Between the Muslims and the Romans, there will be a Hudna (truce) and reconciliation treaty to the extent that they will fight together against their enemy (probably Russia) and they (Muslims & Romans) will split the war acquisitions. Then, the Romans with the Muslims will invade Persia (Iran).” (Nuaim ibn Hammad’s Kitab al-Fitan) 

        This event will unfold after the advent of the Muslim Leader Al Mahdi(The guided one) . He will first attack Russia and then Iran if I understand the hadis correctly. At the moment the Iran and Russia are allied with the major power but it seems Iran and Russia are trying to double cross the west and thats must be the case when the Europeans will request a treaty to the Muslims and together they will attack Russia and Iran. I have made some studies but wont discuss all of them now. May be next year…. :)

          Your comments have no substance. All you have said is information
          which is second, third and forth hand. Tell me something from the Koran that
          can prove what you are saying.
          That is the only book I believe in

          That’s right Salifist so called Moslems don’t believe in the Koran
          only in hadith form this man and that man.

          I have done some studies. these are it, Russian women we should have more in the ME.
          Russian women i need more than 10.
          The Arabs will continue to live in the dark ages, hate everything around them because the book tells them to.
           Isreal America and the west will always be. Palestine will never fall in the hands of the muslims….and the rest well I will not talk about them I will do it, all those Russian chickey babes….
          These are not studies we read something so much and for so long and become brainwashed that we fail to believe anything else…..like these people who read books about aliens that they start to pack their bags thinking they will be taken one day….

           Iran is the only true Muslim nation that has not sold it’s soul to the Shyton…. Are you Crazy? The only reason Iran backs Assad is because he is not a puppet… Iran does not like puppet regimes…. Azerbaijan is a Shia oil rich country… They are puppets just like the gulf that collaborate with Israel!!! I have no bias i tell it like it is…

        • 73Corty77

          So Sayyed Al Mahdi with come after all these years and go to war. Now that makes sense. I though he will come and try and create peace. Just love your rubbish religion wargame. You and your

    Fall of the  Arab dictators according to the Prophet Muhammmad(Peace be upon him)

    Ahmad narrated from Hudhayfah [radhiyallahu ‘anhu] that he said: The Messenger of Allah [sallallahu ‘alayhi wa-sallam] said:

    “Prophet hood will remain among you as long as Allah wills, then Allah will raise it when He wills. 
    Then there will be a khilafah upon the way of Prophet-hood, and it will be as long as Allah wills, then Allah will raise it when He wills. 
    Then there will be a harsh kingdom [mulkan ‘adhdhan], and it will be for as long as Allah wills, then Allah will raise it when He wills. 
    Then there will be a tyrannical kingdom [mulkan jabriyyan], and it will be for as long as Allah wills, then Allah will raise it when He wills. 
    Then there will be a khilafah upon the way of Prophethood.” Then he was silent.” (Musnad Ahmad)
    ——————————————————————————-
    Explanation of the above hadis by Muhammad at-Tayyib ibn Gary :” The khilafah upon the way of Prophethood was that of Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman and ‘Ali [radhiyallahu ‘anhum]. The khilafah of Mu’awiyah [radhiyallahu ‘anhu], who is mentioned by al-Qadhi ‘Iyadh as the fifth of al-Khulafa’ ar-Rashidun, represented a transition period between the first phase and the second phase, that of the harsh kingdom [al-mulk al-‘adhdh] which began during the rule of Yazid ibn Mu’awiyah and continued throughout much of the rule of Banu Umayyah and Banul-‘Abbas after them, followed by the various kingdoms that followed, until the decline in the last few centuries of the last three major centers of Islamic rule: the ‘Uthmani dawlah in Turkey, the kingdom of the Mughals in India, and the kingdom of the Ashraf in the Maghrib. 

    ** Then the tyrannical kingdom [al-mulk al-jabri] began with the coming of secularism and the establishment of puppet regimes largely subservient in one way or another to the kafir nations. This situation has continued up to this day, and we ask Allah to relieve us of it soon, and to allow us to witness the revival of the khilafah upon the way of Prophethood. Amin! ”

    This is the last batch of Arab rulers struggling to avoid their inevitable demise. It is the wind of change.

    As a Christian I ask my muslim friends one question: How dare you say all day long: “Prophet Mohammad Sallalahhu aalayhi wa sallam” ? Do you realize what you are saying ? God is going to pray for (upon) Mohammad and greet him ? God the creator of this whole world, all people, animals and things and everything we see and don’t see (among them mohammad) is going to pary for Mohammad and greet him.

    Other say also he will pray on his family and his friends too (…Aala ahlihi wa sahbihi…)

    No need to say that I don’t believe in a person like Mohammad (with all what he has done) as a prophet from God and the Kuran (with all its contradictions) cannot be from God. Jesus Christ said: “There will be many prophets after me but they will be all false prophets, you will recognize them from their fruits (their acts), they will talk like lambs but act like wolves”. This is exactly how Mohammad behaved.

    Wargame, I advise you (or suggest to you) to read the bible and experience the peace and love that Christ will bring to your heart, and stop calling the Americans and their allies pigs, because your words (which come from the Kuran by the way) mean nothing. All the meanigful and interesting and scientific books in your hands are written by those pigs. All the technology you are using (including this medium) is invented by those pigs. You are living in such darkness that you do not even realize it. I pray for you to see the LIGHT one day and become really FREE, because you are presently in prison, this prison is called ISLAM.

    Does the author truly believe that Lebanon had three(OR EVEN ANY) revolutions?Earlier generations and ours were  fooled into believing that Lebanese revolted against the Turks and the french,and the future generations will be fooled into believing that a ceder revolution took place.Lebanese have always excelled as individuals and always failed as people.The day they agree on common history is the day they will have common aspirations.

      Well Prophet. Perhaps it was that 700 years under Ottomans which ruined the ‘culture’. Surely the effects go on even now.
      Modern times and desires for ‘instant change’ – such as with the ‘Cedar Protests’ – cannot speed a ‘revolution’ which requires large changes in basic philosophies. And ‘philosophy’, after the Greek culture was diminished, along with their schools of thought, falls into disfavour when megalomaniacs wish to rule.
      Advancement of religious thought over logic could only lead to the mass confusions of humanity, when the basic human question of ‘why’ has had no simple answer provided in earlier times. Humans have never accepted anyone saying ‘It simply IS'; so now that we have become closer to the basic answers of ‘why it just IS’, which are still too complicated for most to understand, the religious diversions and the divisions they cause rise in proportion to the loss of the mysteries. Some don’t want to know, and some don’t want us to – it ruins ‘culture’ to learn we are all humans together. One species on a planet. In an expanding and changing universe.
      Caesar was warned; ‘Beware the ides of March’.
      That picture of a few days in one March, is a witness to the ‘feelings’ of a humanity that it had lost something real in it’s advancement – largely due to a megalomaniac – marching together without a care of which silly religion it marched beside – IS a revolution. The feeling was ‘FREEDOM’. It was such a surprise event that no-one had time to pull out the guns and drive it down. The thinking is still there – and continues, no matter how stifled it has been by the aged politicians.
      What IS? The Caesars will die eventually. The culture evolves.

Humans have never accepted anyone saying ‘It simply IS'; so now that we have become closer to the basic answers of ‘why it just IS’, which are still too complicated for most to understand, the religious diversions and the divisions they cause rise in proportion to the loss of the mysteries. Some don’t want to know, and some don’t want us to – it ruins ‘culture’ to learn we are all humans together. One species on a planet. In an expanding and changing universe.
      Caesar was warned; ‘Beware the ides of March’.
      That picture of a few days in one March, is a witness to the ‘feelings’ of a humanity that it had lost something real in it’s advancement – largely due to a megalomaniac – marching together without a care of which silly religion it marched beside – IS a revolution. The feeling was ‘FREEDOM’. It was such a surprise event that no-one had time to pull out the guns and drive it down. The thinking is still there – and continues, no matter how stifled it has been by the aged politicians.
      What IS? The Caesars will die eventually. The culture evolves.

    Lebanon revolution is long been overdue but it was due to the strong suppression of Dog bashar and his lackey Nasrallah sponsored by the satanic regime of Iran. 

    The fall of Dog Bashar will be a game changer. Assad has many weapons and most of them will fall in the hands of the Syrian resistance then it will be distributed to Lebanon, Iraq etc. Assad is loosing control over the Libyan NATO rats which is jointly run by Iran and Syrian regime. So the Libyan resistance will get some arms from Libya too. This is a mess the dictators cause all around. Its peoples power , it will take some time for the ordinary people to learn how to operate those weapon. 

    The Afghans are closing in to give a final blow to the invading pigs and once the pigs are gone from there its going to be a bad news for Iran , Syrian regime and the Lebanese stooge. This event is slowly but steadily unfolding. None of these Muslim army will be backed by their corrupt government. These army is comprised with the oppressed people. Therefore their moral is high.

    Iranian Regime change is coming …..

    Jaber bin Samra based on Nafi bin Otba reports that the Prophet(PBUH)said:”You will marsh against the Arabian Peninsula and Allah will open (conquer) it, then Persia and Allah will open (conquer) it. Then, you will marsh against the Romans’ land and Allahwill open it. Then, you will marsh against the Dajjal and Allah will open it.” Then, Nafi said (to Jaber): “O’ Jaber, we will not see the Dajjal emerge until the Romans’ land has been conquered (by Allah)”
    (Sahih Muslim and Ibn Majah)

    Abdullah bin Masud said that the Prophet(peace be upon him) said : ” Between the Muslims and the Romans, there will be a Hudna (truce) and reconciliation treaty to the extent that they will fight together against their enemy (probably Russia) and they (Muslims & Romans) will split the war acquisitions. Then, the Romans with the Muslims will invade Persia (Iran).” (Nuaim ibn Hammad’s Kitab al-Fitan) 

    This event will unfold after the advent of the Muslim Leader Al Mahdi(The guided one) . He will first attack Russia and then Iran if I understand the hadis correctly. At the moment the Iran and Russia are allied with the major power but it seems Iran and Russia are trying to double cross the west and thats must be the case when the Europeans will request a treaty to the Muslims and together they will attack Russia and Iran. I have made some studies but wont discuss all of them now. May be next year…. :)

    Your comments have no substance. All you have said is information
    which is second, third and forth hand. Tell me something from the Koran that
    can prove what you are saying.
    That is the only book I believe in

    That’s right Salifist so called Moslems don’t believe in the Koran
    only in hadith form this man and that man.

    I have done some studies. these are it, Russian women we should have more in the ME.
    Russian women i need more than 10.
    The Arabs will continue to live in the dark ages, hate everything around them because the book tells them to.
     Isreal America and the west will always be. Palestine will never fall in the hands of the muslims….and the rest well I will not talk about them I will do it, all those Russian chickey babes….
    These are not studies we read something so much and for so long and become brainwashed that we fail to believe anything else…..like these people who read books about aliens that they start to pack their bags thinking they will be taken one day….

     Iran is the only true Muslim nation that has not sold it’s soul to the Shyton…. Are you Crazy? The only reason Iran backs Assad is because he is not a puppet… Iran does not like puppet regimes…. Azerbaijan is a Shia oil rich country… They are puppets just like the gulf that collaborate with Israel!!! I have no bias i tell it like it is…

    As a Christian I ask my muslim friends one question: How dare you say all day long: “Prophet Mohammad Sallalahhu aalayhi wa sallam” ? Do you realize what you are saying ? God is going to pray for (upon) Mohammad and greet him ? God the creator of this whole world, all people, animals and things and everything we see and don’t see (among them mohammad) is going to pary for Mohammad and greet him.

    Other say also he will pray on his family and his friends too (…Aala ahlihi wa sahbihi…)

    No need to say that I don’t believe in a person like Mohammad (with all what he has done) as a prophet from God and the Kuran (with all its contradictions) cannot be from God. Jesus Christ said: “There will be many prophets after me but they will be all false prophets, you will recognize them from their fruits (their acts), they will talk like lambs but act like wolves”. This is exactly how Mohammad behaved.

    Wargame, I advise you (or suggest to you) to read the bible and experience the peace and love that Christ will bring to your heart, and stop calling the Americans and their allies pigs, because your words (which come from the Kuran by the way) mean nothing. All the meanigful and interesting and scientific books in your hands are written by those pigs. All the technology you are using (including this medium) is invented by those pigs. You are living in such darkness that you do not even realize it. I pray for you to see the LIGHT one day and become really FREE, because you are presently in prison, this prison is called ISLAM.
