ooh... we're jealous!!!

after this refreshing day [read my last post]... I feel like a huge urge to write...

I've been marking this syrian-lebanese-border-crisis very carefully among ppl... and I gotta admit that it IS disgusting to see how syrians are reacting towards it... it's totally unbelievable.. as if the lebanese regime [and ppl] had occupied our country for the last 30 years, and played a major role in intensifying a civil war here and made pacts with israel about how distribute our lands... and stood with christians against muslems and then again flip-flopped against them turning it into a bitter religious war, assasinating ppl, and sticking their nose in every little detail in our daily life, and sucking the life out of the country and forming smuggling mafias and supporting hash plantations and cocaine factories... it's digusting... I don't wanna believe that those are truly syrians...
Lebanon has always been a refuge for syrians... it has always been the last bright area in this dark middle east... when the [rebels] overthrew Khaled Al-Azem he went to lebanon and when the french bombed damascus it was beirut who striked.. and and and... vise versa...

It's not right... not politically, not economically [most of the truck drivers are SYRIANS... plus all the Transit money that the treasury is losing..], not stratigically [we're forcing lebanon into a solo-peace plan with israel.. considering that that's their last land passage.. and honestly I wouldn't blame them...] and for sure it's not right ethically...

@PM. M. Naji Otari... I'm not stupid... I can't believe that bulshit about home security... give me some credit.. PLZ!!!

but then again... it's always been this plan... to take battles away from ur land so u wouldn't get hurt... syrian govt. is moving her battles into other grounds.. Iraq, Lebanon... etc... it's always been like this... and just when we thought that the withdrawal from lebanon marked the end of that era.. the HAD to prove us wrong...

There never had been REAL Bold demonstrations inside damascus [at least since the 70s] like the ones we've seen on march 10th and after closure of Atassi forum... I honestly believe that it was another favor from the lebanese...

The road to real democracy in Damascus has to cross the borders from Dabbousieh... and same for beirut...
think it over... we're not responsible for what the regime did in lebanon... that's a very common statement.. and it's VERY true... but what r the lebanese responsible for?! to get this treatment?!!!! ha?!! what have they done... fought for their democracy... is it jealousy maybe?!!!

it's jealousy mixed with stupidity and seasoned with short-sightedness. oh and it's best with a very old pre-historic bottle of ideology!
I'm starting to feel a little hungry here ;-)

A day after day all I am thinking of is running away and hiding from any lebaneese I could see in the future, I feel so ashamed from what our wise government is doing...

Very well said indeed!

The current Syrian procedures, governmental wise, reflect a grown anger and disappointment of losing a huge income they used to suck from Lebanon over tens of years! They lost that easy money!

When Syrian labors were killed in Lebanon, our government did nothing, nor they acted at all, they were waiting to see the outcome of the election hoping their puppies in Lebanon would win and save their golden chicken! They did not, thus, the government started punishing the Lebanese!

Let’s move to the Syrian people reactions! It’s out of stupidity! They are all angry cuz Lebanese accused us of being corrupt, retarded and ignorant! Well, are we not?

We are so much isolated, thanks to Syrian policies! We lost our closet ally, Lebanon. God knows what is yet to lose! Our country? Eh, we lost it 3o years ago! So, I guess this is it!

لا يا إحسان، لسنا متخلفين ولا جهلة! الحق يقال أن سياسات سوريا تجاه لبنان (بما فيها سياسة الثأر والانتقام الحالية) تحمل الكثير الكثير من الأخطاء، لكن لا يجب أن نعطي أي تبرير للعنصرية العمياء ضد السوريين في لبنان، والتي تعود جذورها إلى ما قبل التدخل السوري في لبنان. لا يجب أن نتسامح مع العنصرية أبداً، إن كانت من الجانب اللبناني أو من الجانب السوري. عندما تنادي حكومتنا بحقوق العمال السوريين، فإنها ربما تستعملهم كورقة سياسية، ولا تسعى وراء مصلحتنا ومصلحتهم فعلاً، لكن هذا لا يعني أنه لم يوجد في لبنان عمال سوريون تعرّضوا لأبشع أشكال العنصرية، وقتلوا وأهينوا وأجبروا على الرحيل بغير ذنب اقترفوه. لا يجدي نفعاً أن نلوم الحكومة السورية على كل ما يحدث من مشاكل بين سوريا ولبنان. إذا أردنا فعلاً علاقات سليمة بين البلدين وبين الشعبين علينا أن نتعرف على مواضع الخطأ كلها وأن نضع يدينا على الجرح. عاشت سوريا وعاش لبنان! ـ

Abu Rummaneh,

Nobody's calling to tolerate racism. nor to ignore what happened to the Syrian labours in Lebanon, on the contrary, I was pissed off when the government said nothing when it should have!

Having said that, we should keep in mind that racism is everywhere, Lebanon as well as Syria. Not all the Lebanese are racists, we heard about incidents and crimes against what? 100 Syrian labours? 500? ten thousands? What about the hundreds of thousands of Syrian labours in there? Were they all mistreated? The thing is that we should not only look at the side that helps us form a negative perspective over what is going on and react as per it!

Public punishment that has been implemented against the Lebanese is taking the un-racist Lebanese to the other side and helping the anti-Syria politicians making a point! Who is to be blamed? not me nor you, it's the government! We have no control over this issue!

By the way, I always say that people of a country are respected by other countries as much as they are respected by their own country (government)......!
