    What good comes out of these islamists for the general public and the country ? They only know to complain, block streets, and entice people against each other, burn up tires and close the streets and prevent normal people from going on with their normal lives of working, studying, and simply living. These terrorists who are obstructing our lives all over Lebanon should be incarcerated and put in jail with hard labor. They do not participate in the economy, in the contrary they draw the country’s economy in the red with their acts. At the end these terrorists are acting in whose name ? yeah you guessed it….. in GOD’s name and who can dare to be against GOD? Nobody !!!
    These self-appointed God defenders/lawyers are on their way to complete bankrupcy. They will continue doing their negative acts until the people (the muslim people) finally realize their true emptiness and their fake representation of God. So please keep on doing what you’re doing… as you will be expediting your end !!!
