All we had wanted when we left was survival, but today we want something even simpler than that. We merely want a hug from our family members, to remove the mountainous weight from our chests, which the murderous Lebanese authorities have accumulated there. We wish to hear any good news from Lebanon, any… but unfortunately, our homeland only sends us sorrow, misery, oppression and more alienation.
We can ask ourselves: Could there be a convergence between the state’s interests and the farmer’s interests in this legislation under these exceptional circumstances that we are experiencing now? Unfortunately, the answer given the current circumstances is: absolutely not.
No matter how loud the voice of hypocrisy is, it will not cover our people’s moans in their beds at night. Our country is filthy, ruled by the filthy. Our government will always remain, no matter what they do, merely a defective product of the sectarian political system in Lebanon.
It is no doubt painful that your friend should wish you were burnt alive. But such an angry comment is only a detail when it comes to years of incomparable hatred and menace against us, the Shia who oppose the “Big Brother.”
