A Reply To Ali!

Mostafa, on his blog http://beirutspring.blogspot.com wrote a letter to Ali, one of the guys demonstrating against the govenrment. Ali replied to Mostafa later on. But I felt like I need to reply back to what Ali said; and so, here is my reply. You can click here to see what Mostafa wrote, and click here to read what Ali replied......



Ali,
Your dad taught you that men shouldn't cry, but you said that he cried sometimes.
Only those with no feelings can NOT cry while they are making a conference infront of the whole world, and all of a sudden they get a note that his very own people, women and children were killed in a barbaric massacre just moments ago....

PM Seniora showed the whole world that before anything else, we are human beings, and that the live of EACH one of us Lebanese MEANS ALOT to us. His honestly and pure human feelings showed the whole world that we are barbaric people who held no value for human lives. His tears provoked the Arab leaders to unite and go united demanding a fair UN resolution that would prevent farther meaningless massacres.

No, Ali, men should cry when their own people get killed. Men shouldn't hide away and yet come on TV and start screaming that they had killed the enemies, I wish I had seen the other leaders being affected with all the human lives we lost for no reason because of their "mistake" as they admit later on.....

Without the government you are protesting against now Ali, Israel would have still being bombarding Lebanon up till now. Without this government, there would have been a UN resolution that would have brought Lebanon to its knees. Without this government, you would have been jailed for DARING to say no to authorities, as we have suffered YEARS AND YEARS from the Syrian regime you PROUDLY said "Thank you" to in March 8th....

Can't you see Ali, without emotions and true pure feelings, we are no different than animals who kill eachother over power. And we are PROUD of PM Seniora, and we treasure his tears, because just right then, I realized that we have leaders who can feel, we have leaders who treasure our Lebanese lives.....

I hope one day you'll be able to realize that.....
