    When Rafik el Harriri was brutally assassinated couple of years ago, Lebanon was changed forever.

    Who was Rafik Harriri and why was his death so influential?

    In Lebanon each sect has its leader or representer. Harriri represented the Sunni Muslims. Harriri was a Billionaire and educated more than 30,000 families, built about 30 free of charge school and the first completely free of charge hospital. Harriri was known for his extremely close relationship with Jack Shiraque. They had business affiliations that go deep. Also, Harriri used to fund various projects for Shiraque.

    Rafik Harriri was the voice of the average Lebanese person sick of living under Syrian occupation. However, although he had the biggest number of supporters in Lebanon, he refused to go down the road that Hezbollah took. He refused to arm his people. Again and again, when asked why won't he do it, Harriri always replied "my weapon is my pen". Sadly, that pen didn't take him too far.

    Now in Lebanon we have two major political teams.

    8March = Hezbollah, Amal and FPM (Free Patriotic Movement)
    ^^ Pro Syrian, Iranian...Anti-American
    14March = FM(Future Movement), PSP(Progressive Socialist Party) and LF (Lebanese Forces)
    Anti Syrian, Iranian...Direct affiliations with the USA.

    Before I go on, let me explain a few things.

    8 March
    Hezbollah(Leader = Hassan Nasrallah)
    Amal(Leader = Nabih Berri)
    ^^Both are Muslim Shiaates groups backed by approximately 1.4 million people.
    FPM(Leader = Michael Aoun) = Christian group, backed by almost 600,000 people

    So 8th of March have approximately 2 million supporters.


    14 March
    FM[Leader = Saad Harriri(Son of Rafik Harriri)] = Muslim Sunni group backed by almost 1.9 million people.
    PSP (Leader = Walid Junblat) = Druze group, exact number not known but it's over 300K
    Ouwet(Leader = Samir GaeGae) = Christian group, backed by about 600,000 also.

    1••h of March have approximately 2.8 million supporters.


    Now, I will explain what has been going on in the Lebanese political scene.



    When Rafik Harriri was assassinated, 1••h of March blamed Syria for this disgusting and brutal killing, and lead the very famous 1 million man march asking for Syria to leave. The marching protest was attended by almost 1.8 million 14March supporters. Soon after that, Syria had no option but to finally leave Lebanese territories after decades of unofficial occupation and atrocities far worse than any Israeli war can leave behind. Syria was forced out, and it didn't like it.

    The president of Lebanon is called Emile Lahoud, he's a pro-Syrian president (he was nominated for first term while Syria was in Lebanon). Before Rafik Harriri died, Bashar Assad (Pres. of Syria) called him and told him and I quote "Either re-elect Lahoud for a 2nd term, or I will turn the clocks for Lebanon to before we entered it and I will burn the country". Harriri had no option, since back then, FM wasn't a strong group. Also, Harriri was a peaceful man, a business man who didn't want to go to war although his supporters were more than willing.

    Now allow me to explain why Hezbollah's alliance with Syria is so retarded. Also, allow me to explain to you in details what Syria did to Lebanon.

    During the July war, Hezbollah was bravely defending Lebanon against the vicious onslaught brought upon by Israel(This point is debatable but I won't debate. Everyone has his opinion) Nasrallah was on TV every couple of days telling the Lebanese people he will win and a bunch of other stuff. Back then, he had the support of Everyone. When the war was over and Hezbollah won militarily and lost everything else, everyone was eager to know what's next. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Nasrallah starts attacking the government saying it was pro-American during the war and wanted the shiaates eradicated. Thus comes, 8th of March, the supposed pro-Syrian-Iranian opposition.

    8th of March demanded the resignation of PM Fouad Sanioura(Person who filled in for Harriri) and the formation of a new government where they would have the upper hand. Briefly after that, it was clear. Hezbollah, Amal and FPM backed by an Iranian-Syrian proxy are after the control of Lebanon. Nasrallah has his own agenda for Lebanon. He wants Wilayat al Fakih. A Shiaate Muslim ruled country.

    When the demand for the resignation ignited, 1••h of March were quick to hold their ground and tell the pro-Syrian gang to get lost basically. !••h of March are anti-Syrian-Iranian to the bones, flesh, vessels, heart and everything. They absolutely despise Syria and won't allow for a Syrian ally to get his way.

    So why are 14March anti-Syrian? other than them killing Harriri(Which will be proved in the coming Tribunal Inshallah)

    - Syria broke into houses, kicked out the owners and seized it. NO-ONE can do anything.
    - Syrian intelligence controlled the whole country. From electricity, to import, export and anything you might imagine. It taxed everything and stole from everyone.
    - In the decades Syria unofficially occupied Lebanon. It left tens of thousands dead and kidnapped and hundreds imprisoned. Far worse than all the Israeli wars on Lebanon combined. And yet, Hezbollah is pro-Syrian fighting Israel? shouldn't it be the other way around?


    Hezbollah started a war for 3 prisoners locked up in Israel. Here's a fun fact. Syria has more than 240 prisoners. AND STILL Hezbollah is pro-Syrian.

    Hezbollah still has its 30,000+ missiles in the argument that Lebanon isn't liberated yet because of the Shibaa farms. Here's another fun fact. If Syria provided a paper of ownership for the Shibaa farms, Lebanon would get it back from the United Nations in no time, and Israel said it would comply. So why isn't Syria giving us the ownership paper? AND STILL Hezbollah is pro-Syrian.

    Syria has assassinated alot of anti-Syrian politicians. Spanning from, Rafik Harriri, Pierre Gemayal, Kamal Junblat, Walid Eido, Reneh Maa'wad..etc..etc. And hopefully in the upcoming tribunal all will be proven. AND STILL Hezbollah is pro-Syrian.

    Odd isn't it? Hezbollah is fighting Israel for 3 prisoners, yet Syria killed more than Israel ever did and has 240+ prisoners. Hezbollah keeps its missiles for liberating Shibaa while it can be liberated in no time by a simple paper from Syria.

    About a month ago, 8th of March went down to the streets for a so called peaceful protest. That Tuesday is now labeled Black-Tuesday. When 8th of March went to protest in the streets, it burned tires, cut off roads, and FORCED a strike. Sunnis mainly control the capital Beirut. Suddenly, Hezbollah and Amal wanted to enter the heart of Beirut and block roads. Instantly and forcefully 14March gathered its supporters and faced them in the streets of Beirut leaving alot of wounded people and worse, dead people. 8th March quickly retreated from Beirut after the apparent loss. They focussed on the North, but LF were right there just waiting for them. FPM and LF clashed brutally. The mini-war ended with LF victorious and FPM quickly retreating from North also. No-one went to the mountains where the PSP are located. No one was dumb enough.

    So why did I just explain what happened? If 8March lead by Hezbollah really had the best intentions for Lebanon they wouldn't have started what they did. Lebanon just BARELY escaped another civil war.

    Two days later the same scenario happened again, but this time, Hezbollah wanted to go into Tareek Jdeedeh(Beirut area where almost 40% of FM supporters are located. Also an area heavily defended) That day was labeled Black Thursday. FM, with no other option, climbed onto rooftops and went out to balconies and started sniping Hezbollah members and shooting at any approaching car. About 9hours later, with a failing plan, Hezbollah finally got back and ended that horrible day. Again, Hezbollah nearly started a civil war in the country they supposedly die for.

    Where was the army through all this? You have to understand that the army always tries to separate both teams from clashing but that's an impossibility since the smallest 1••h March or 8March groups outnumber the army greatly.

    Now 14March have 3 demands. Disarm Hezbollah, prosecute Syria in the upcoming tribunal and end the Syrian influence on Lebanon.

    I myself, am a 14March supporter and member. And I can say this. I respect the Hezbollah guerrillas that defended Lebanon, or atleast tried to. But I spit on the political agenda Hezbollah has. I spit at Nasrallah and his followers. And I also spit at 8March as a whole.

    Hezbollah-Iran = Extremist Muslims that bring nothing but shame and a bad name to real Muslims everywhere. If I was a Christian living in the west, I wouldn't blame the people for the recent Islamophobia. It's disgusting.

    The best way to go is to sign peace with Israel, embark on more business, economical and political affiliation with the USA and prosecute that animal called Bashar Assad for the crimes he committed in Lebanon.

    What I just wrote, VERY briefly explains the whole situation. The west needs to differentiate between Shiaa Muslims and Sunni Muslims. We don't associate ourselves with them. We are ashamed of them.
