Christian Division......Even When Celebrating!

If you were among the lucky ones who decided to drive passing Sassine Square tonight, you would have witnessed a scene that can't be described!!

You see, it was supposed to be a celebration for the Lebanese Army's great victory at Nahr-l-Bared Camp. You would expect to see people holding Lebanese and Army flags, weaving, cheering, being grateful to all the huge sacrifices the army men paid for our sake.

Well, think again! There were two sides; an Orange side, holding up FPM flags and pictures of the Orange General, and another white side, weaving LF flags and holding big pictures of l Hakeem!!!

Alone in a single corner, stood couple of people with few Lebanese and Army flags, totally lost among the countless numbers of the other two sides.

And the Army men who were supposed to be there to celebrate, found themselves obliged to stand as a barrier between the two sides instead!

It was a sad scene, there is no way to describe what I saw tonight but one word......

Shame on us

The most important thing that they all agreed on celebrating the victory.. They all support the Lebanese Army.. Mabrouk la Libnan

Yeah, the intention to go down on the streets and be together was a good enough. But when it really comes down to it, Any Building in the Christian Areas are mixed by people being down the middle with either the March 14 or March 8.

True, I was hoping to only see the Lebanese flag.
