bread - pita - arabic styleThe following dialogue between a father and his son that appeared on Facebook tells the sad story about the Lebanese people nowadays , the confusion the Lebanese kids are facing in identifying themselves and what parents have to go through to survive.

Dad, are we Sunnis or Shiites?

No sweetheart we are Lebanese

Dad , seriously what are we ?

My Son.. I am Sunni and your mom is Shiite

and you were baptized at a Catholic church

Your sister is Maronite, like her husband

and your brother is going to marry a Druze

Dad, did you do that for national unity ?

No my son, I did this so that whatever happens

one of us will still be able to go out and buy a loaf of bread
