The tolerant Truth

The Truth is :
what one likes to hear
and the better-Truth is
the one you hear and do believe .
Both are not necessarily true.

My Truth and your Truth may be different
therefore one of us , may be wrong.

Nevertheless ,
may I remind you that :

Arabs we more tolerant than most of other civilisations.

Islam is more tolerant than Christianity and Judaism

Palestinians are more tolerant than Israelis.

Israel is more a threat to Peace than Iran
Korea, Afghanistan, Libya,Syria. ...all together

George Bush is more of a threat to World-Peace
Puttin,Qaddafi, Kim,Ahmadinejad
Batman and Mugabe.....all together

George Bush promoted Terrorism
more than Ben Ladin and Mickey Mouse,
both together

Judaism is more intolerant
than ex-White-South- Africa

When the Arabs ruled Spain, it became
the only tolerant-space within Europe

Jews living among the Arabs
never saw the need to create their own "Country"
because of the Arab-Tolerance

If you disliked my Truth
create your own ......and confront me.

Is hunger a punishment ??

Gaza is fighting, resisting and liberating
on an empty-stomach.

Ramallah is smiling , kneeling and cooperating
on a fuller-stomach .

Iraq is resisting and fighting
on an empty-stomach
Kurdistan and the Green Zone profit and survive
on a full-stomach.

Should the Brave die hungry ??
Must the Brave always live hungry ??

Why do traitors eat better ??
Why is treason more rewarded ??

Is hunger a punishment .......or a purification ??

How hungry was Jesus , on the last day ??
How hungry was Ernesto Che.....?

The complexity of the Lebanese-particularity

the Beirut-labyrinth

If you knew about the Lebanese-peculiarity
when it comes to ministerial- nominations
or to electoral-procedure s
then you need not to read further ......

But, if you admit your average-normal- ignorance,
I shall give an example of the complexity
for those who shall admit not knowing about
the particularity of that complexity .

As example I shall describe how a Cabinet of Minister
is chosen among the available candidates .

obviously candidates can be either Muslim or Christian
the Muslims are chosen among the Shiaa or the Sunni or the Druze
the Christians are chosen out of six or seven different sects
Armenians being Christians are divided into Orthodox and Catholics
Special Minorities are also represented
so as Kurds and or Assyrians and or Chaldean's
(and among even my own Evangelical sub-group).
the Political colours , Clans and Parties are also obviously most relevant
the regional (geographical) origins are also taken into consideration
the Tribal/Family/ dynasty belonging
the foreign-factor is relevant , as far as ,
which Embassy will sponsor whom ??
the personal-factor which is about favours
and favouritism......otherwise known as:
"Minister without a portefeuille"

To understand better that aforementioned
ten-fold-complexity -factor , you may compare it
to the USA, where the Winner takes it all....... (the easiest !)
or to Syria, Egypt and Jordan
where any pro-government- clowns are nominated
and the opposition stays at home ,
or sleeps eventually in prisons.....

No ,
Lebanon has its peculiar brand of power-sharing
otherwise known as the Tabbouleh-Democracy .
It is a kind of compromise within an acrobatical- act-of-balance
between , inviting your enemies for Dinner in order

to poisoning them with the taste of power ...........
and (over) feeding your allies immensely so they leave you in peace.

Democracy ??........ No !!
Hypocrisy ??.....not completely

But wait a minute !! it is not over....yet

Those ten-fold-complex- persons must be distributed into
30 ministerial- position while satisfying the wishes of :
six embassies
two religions
seventeen christian-sects
three Muslim-sects
five regions
twelve clans
ten dynasties
two influential- neighbours
The Vatican , the Kremlin and the White-house.

When you can see through this jungle of complexity
then you shall have to fit the right candidate to the
right-position ( the right Ministry)... ...
Good Luck !!

Therefore I prefer Cairo......or Amman
you just kiss the hand of the Pharaoh or the King
and you get a chair.......

The last crime.....

he replaced "the man of Peace"

For the record:
we noted that Paul Wolfowitz was sent home
not for planing the invasion of Iraq
but for overpaying his lover/secretary.

For the record:
we note that Ehud Olmert will be sent home
not for slaughtering Jennin , or bombing Beirut
or strangling Gaza....
but for accepting bribes
from a US-Jewish-Millionaire.

Conclusion :
the last-crime hides all others !!

الجريمة الأخيرة
لاحظنا أن بول ولفويتز أرسل إلى بيته (طرد من الوظيفة)
ليس للتخطيط لغزو العراق، كلا
بل لدفعه راتبا لعشيقته/أمينة سره المحدد على جدول الرواتب

وكذلك للعلم بالشيء ولا للجهل به
نلاحظ أن صاحب نعمة ولفويتز، إيهود أولمرت، سيطرد من وظيفته أيضاً

(وكأن السرقة مهنة غير معروفة عند بني صهيون
لا لزوم لحك الدماغ... ممن يقيم في بيتي وبيتك الأن؟؟؟)
كلا.... ليس لذبح جنين... ولا لقصفه بيروت

... ولا حتى لخنقه غزة... كلا وألف
كلا وألف كلا... بل لقبوله رشوة...
من صديقه المليونير اليهودي المافياوي الأمريكي
الجريمة الأخيرة تغطي على كل ما بسقها
