it takes a Devil to beat the Devil....

Five years ago I discovered a discussion-list
called LEBISSUES @ .... ...
I subscribed there and noticed
that the moderator, there, Mr. Tanious Chakkar
was a false-leftist , a Syria-hater and an Anti-Arab.
(He even claimed that Hezbollah has slaughtered
about 200 academics and intellectuals in South-Lebanon)

Although , I hated everything he were , I stayed ,
and participated to the debates.
Among other idiocy that Chakkar was promoting ,
was the comparison of a Syrian-Tank in the Lebanon
to an Israeli Tank in Rammallah.

You can imaging what and how I replied
and argumented against that political-clown who was
not even remotely funny.

To make a long story short , I once proposed to put
the presence (or non presence) of Syria in the Lebanon
on a National-Referendum.....and wait for the result.

At that point ,Mr. Tanious Chakar called me
" unimaginative and boring"
and has kicked me out of his list.....
and accused me of being "apologetic for Syria ,too"
as if this were an accusation or a sin, by itself.

Now five years have pasted , Syria has physically left,
Hariri has died , Israel has bombed Beirut....but Syria
is still present because the greater part of the Lebanese
want Syria , whether Bush likes it or not
whether Mr. Tannious Chakar likes it or not
whether I like it or not.

Syria is not an Angel ,
neither is Syria supposed to be an Angel
Syria is fighting against the Devil
and it takes a Devil to beat the Devil .

Soon US Marines will land on my beach-club in Beirut
as they did in 1958.
Fifty years ago I was too young to carry a gun
today I am too old to carry an RPG.........

But whatever will happen , soon in my Beirut
it will surely make more American widows ,
more Israeli orphans, and more Arab-Hero's.

People like Tanious Chakar will have to live
in the new-green-zone-of Beirut
and lecture us about democracy and freedom
while wearing a bullet-vest , and a chastety-belt.

el Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah
will surpass Salah el Deen el Ayyoubi

All is well that ends up well !!
