The Duets: Now 14th of March Sings Back

Fed up from over 2 monthes of demonstrations from the First of December Coalition (8th of March + Aoun's Free Patriotic Movement), the 14th of March were saved by Rafiq el Harriri from his grave. Today, a massive gathering occurred as well which would send a message to the December 1st Coalition that they too are ready to fight back, and the politicians drove their people against those.

All yesterday and before yesterday I have been hearing 14th of March supporters telling me that they are going down to teach the gangsters a lesson. Personally, both are gangsters with a minor difference one got 20,000 missiles. The latest events in the last month clearly showed that all political parties need to disarm. The case of Hezbollah's arms is not resolved and probably will not be resolved till the decision "Peace With Israel" is resolved. It is ironic that the Palestinians sit and negotiate with the Israelis (reactionary leaderships) while the Lebanese are left dangling in the open air. Moreover, the Syrian Baathis have been involved in underground negotiations as well. Yet, the Lebanese are divided due to their foreign sponsors and all are waiting for the foreign sponsorship to mediate among each other and gain territorial grounds in the face of the other.

The United States has been the number 1 terrorist nation due to the on-going attrocities in Iraq, Afghanistan, and demolishing any opposition they face in order to install puppet government (similar what we witnessed in Latin America and previously with the Soviet Government satellites). Saudi Arabia wants to defend "Democratic" Lebanon and talk about a democratic elected government, but they have not experienced any democracy, when they last held elections for a President? France is interested in returning to the Middle East and proved how ineffective that nation is in the face of the Israeli aggression during the July War. Syria's Assad has been known to be a one party rule dictatorship regime, and Iran's Wali el Faqih & Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei talks about protecting "Democratic Lebanon From the Israelis" but ends up releasing his Ansar-e Hezbollah on his own people (not to be mistaken with Lebanon's Hezbollah).

Then we have the topic of Israel. A lot of foreign ministers in Paris III stated that in order for the Lebanese to have peace, the Palestinian issue should be resolved. The Palestinian leaders are obsessed with protecting their tiny powers rather protecting their civilians. Israel, the second nation that practices terror, never stopped its on-going slaughters of the Palestinians (and Lebanese when they have the chance to do so) and moreover never hesistates to take unilateral decisions in order to proceed with its "Zionist" interest. Worse, Olmert's open support to Seniora's government triggers more instability in Lebanon just as the December 1st Coalition accuses its leaders to be Zionist zombies. It is ironic that the Seniora Government will, once this entire fiasco is resolved in Lebanon through nice juicy business deals, Hezbollah and AMAL will return to be part of the Government. Bottom, the Proletariat in this entire region got only themselves to wipe out their leadership (and I do mean all, Jews included against their Zionist leaders).

For now, that juicy deal is far-fetched. Hezbollah's Moussawi never hesitates to accuse Junblatt and compare him to a dwarf, and Junblatt never hesitates to mock Nasrallah's missiles (once he asked him to lend him 10,000 missiles against Israel) as well comparing Aoun to Nasrallah's donkey.

Yesterday, two bombs took place and killed three citizens. 14th of March as always adopted the massacre. My sources informed me that the bus system got Michel el-Murr's investment in it, and some support him directly, those who got wounded.

Today, it is not clear how many arrived to the Martyr's Square. Numbers fluctuate between 800,000 - 1.2 million supporters. The most three to be targeted were Aoun, Nasrallah, and el-Assad. 14th of March are here to tell December 1st Coalition that they are ready and bring it on. The proletariat have never been divided, and most of the leaders attain their support from the Sect based system.

The deadlock is still on-going, and the bi-polarity is still dividing the Lebanese. The worst to suffer though are those who stand and despise from all their heart both reactionary camps. They sit and react to each other, as Riyadh and Tehran are negotiating with each other.

Amidst this chaos, Lebanon proved it is a democratic nation where freedom of expression (to a certain extent) has been achieved. I can't tell about the "activists" in their own areas where they are a minority about freedom of speech, but that is a problem that is existant almost everywhere in the world.

The memorial of al-Harriri was a success for their leaders who think they scared al-Assad away. What they do not know, nor their rival camp, that each's only soluton is to dump the other and their supporters into the sea. Now, we wait if at the evening their will be clashes like last time.

What makes me wonder though, why always bring Kamal Junblatt and Bashir Gemayel into this fiasco? Kamal Junblatt was the leader of the Lebanese National Movement who sought to take away the Christian Militia's hegemony on Lebanese politics, and got the chance with the presence of the PLO to counter the manipulated Lebanese Army. Practically, Kamal Junblatt sought to annhilate Pierre Gemayel till the later's throne was saved when they invited the Syrians to rescue them under the Patronage of the United States and support of Israel. Personally, I think Kamal Junbatt is much more dedicated to be put in this fiasco, as he and Pierre Gemayel skinned each other because the latter refused to demolish the Sectarian System.

Meanwhile, none has proposed to build bombshelters to the frontline villages at the border with Israel to protect our civilians from a new potential Israeli Aggression. Bottom line, we need to be united against the reactionary leaders. More turmoil is coming soon our way.... (hopefully not).

Really good post. This is where to go, to see both sides exposed.

I switched to Google, without messing up my template.

I told you so :)

I totally agree! This sectarian politics is out of control. I do have a question for you though, who do define as the proletariat?

Margaret said...

One more question: What does Renegade Eye mean when he/she says that she/he switched to blogger? Do you mean the new beta templates? I've been thinking about doing it too but was worried I'd lose all the modifications I made to my template already. Thanks in advance.

800,000???? geez.
1.2 million??? what the f*** :D

there's no way it was more than 200,000. i'm being generous here.

but anyway i am not into the whole numbers game to begin with. but i find it hilarious that people are calling that tiny protest 800,000.

walla if they had 800,000 i say they have nothing to worry about, why not go to early elections.

Angry Anarchist said...

MFL defines the proletariat as anyone who is against the two factions. ;)

Some definition of proletariat. ;)

MarxistFromLebanon said...

Yes Margaret, the new one, sort of because me and Renegade Eye write on more than our blogs (I write at his blog as well), we were probably among the last to switch to the new new blogger

Oh come on Angry Anarchist, 200,000 :P, damn you are that extremist :D The PSP alone were almost that much...

And no the Proletariat are not that :P, you know that...

Margaret said...

So, are you defining the proletariat as anyone in the working class no matter where they live and who they support? Yes, if Lebanese citizens would join together and demand the end to sectarianism, maybe things would change.

MarxistFromLebanon said...

Problem Margaret that Lebanese alone can't do much alone, with all the meddling from bourgeoisie elsewhere, that is why I targeted the whole region in this article

Puppeteer said...

What amused me is the genuine Junblateean eloquence.
Don't they realise they're clowns?

(hey I can post!)

Wandering Margaret said...

Yes, there is alot of meddling from elsewhere.
