As I read blog comments from Lebanon, it seems that the Lebanese people have forgotten their history. Lebanon has been a country of violence beginning with the civil war in 1958. In the fighting between 1975 and 1976, an estimated 40,000 Lebanese were killed by infighting. For 65 years you have either ignore your problems (such as control of Palestinian refugees, allowing PLO fighters to use your country, allowing Syrian meddling, allowing Hezbollah fighters to use your country, etc.) or use violence to settle your differences. What were you thinking Israel would do when you allowed Hezbollah to operate out of your territory? You are being used by Syria and Iran. If you don’t have the courage to stand up for your country, you will continue to be used by them and any other radical Muslim entity. You could have had the help of many of the countries of the West and Europe had you only asked. You will continue to experience violence until you abandon violence as a way to settle your differences and insist that organizations that use violence leave your county. We pray that God will make his presence known and bring peace to your country.
the prophet reaches back a grand total of 48 years and claims historical wisdom.The West has quite a historical record of "helping" but to understand that you'll need to reeach back a bit further than 48 years, though it's ongoing.And your all-knowing, all seeing GOD really is just an authoritative prick who revels in being ALL VIOLENT.
It really is pretty funny guys. You are all "people of the book" and worship the same god. As a buddhist I find this amusing, but depressing. Your path to your salvation lies in your own hands, no one elses. Now there are three religious fanatic posts ;). PenGun
