The government canceled its decisions, and they stressed that there is no winner or loser. Al - Mannar directly puts a sentence: "People celebrate in shooting in the air", and then recieve a call "the master of resistance won against the Israelis". this is not over, and Manar is charging up its audience still. This is not over , not by a long shot... not the way the Opposition is celebrating its victory and making the other half of the Lebanese as traitors. This is repulsive and disgusting the way they reacted instead of taking the perfect chance to make a true reconciliation on the grassroots level. Shame on Hezbollah's Mannar. This is the perfect chance to sort things out, but no, they had to behave as "victors over the americans", disregarding their "peaceful demonstrations" which divided West Beirut to Cantons (that are still here where I live), humilating the Sunnis and Druz, and use their arms against the Lebanese.
And of course, now heavy shoot-out in Dahhieh, they all should disarm. The government should also learn not to disregard the other side. Yet, now the Opposition are more disgusting than ever in my eyes... all those who died is for the sake of political points (and definitely not resistance), and yes let them charge up their weapons in celebration. let the Sunni - Shiite sectarianism rise more, added now with Durzi blind hatred. Now the government will promote to its supporters: "we provided a settlement, and look how they behaved."
Bleh, it could have been the perfect chance to do a national historic pact to solve everything!!!! And let us hope those militias would withdraw on the spot rather being unleashed to the point of no-return. This wasnt a resistance war, it was a civil war par-excellence. And those who argue it wasnt, then 1958 wasn't!
The news reported also shooting in Baalbeck and Hermel as well to open air, all Shiite locations, not sectarian? Of course not, these are Resistance bullets!!!! Each bullet is increasing its thrift!
Future TV reported that 3 trucks carrying arms were confiscated by the army. They were going to Halba for the SSNP. If that is true, why doesnt it appear on the Manar or NBN? Resistance bullets? If not true, how low the Future TV is aiming to cover up for the butchery up there?
Seems we are heading to a new Iraq!!! At least for now the bloodshed stopped temporarily. Let us hope Israel won't do its move.
An Eye Witness, for his own safety that trusted comrade chose the nickname "The Pen" wrote me as follows from there, describing me the situation:
"At 11.14 pm, and after few hours of the cabinet meeting, Seniora’s government declared that they will pull back the two ‘famous’ decisions. When Ghazi el 3arede was declaring that, shooting started to be heard. The shooting increased with time and it became strong. Then started the convoy of cars to fill the streets. Each convoy had a number of cars and motor cycles. What is nice about those guys, celebrating there victory is how they were stopping each distance, going out of their cars and motorcycles, and starting to shout “Ali Ali Ali” or “Haidar, Haidar, Haidar” and even the typical “Allah wa Nasrallah wl da7ye kella”.
Some of these convoys even had armed people in them shooting in the air each now and then!
These convoys are still taking place even now two hours after the end of the government declaration!!
And Nasralah stresses the point that it was not a Sunni-Shiite clashes !!"
(MFL notes: to be noted: Haydar and Imam Ali are two religious historical figures and heroes in the Shiite doctrines). Religion is the Opium of the Masses indeed...
No War but Class War!!!
