هنا، ألوذ في هدأة هذا الليل براحةٍ من قيظ النّهار. هنا، أحوك في الفكر خواطر، وأولّد على الشّفة بنات. هنا، ابتسامات حنين ترجّع صدى طفولةٍ نائية، وقصص حبّ طواها الزّمن. هنا، حلمٌ بغدٍ أجمل
Protests...
I just had a look at the live images from our office TV set, which we had newly purchased given the circumstances (we have had enough of always being last to know). Here are some of our first reactions, reiterated every two seconds:

- woooooooooooooooooow! Ya latif! C'est quoi ça? mish tabi3i! where did all those people come from?
Seriously, where would anyone see massive crowds, thronging streets from one end to another, cheering for the President of another country? Pffffffff!

Yalla, back to work... I wonder how I'll manage to go home in two hours...

    I was just watching it too Eve.

    So unless the protests don't stop before baba get's up from his afternoon nap..guess I can kiss that Arabic summer course at Saint Jo's good bye! :-(

    [Sorry Lebanese,I pretty much know how selfish I must sound to you right now. I apologize but I just can't help it :\]

    Hey Farooha,

    It's strange, because Lebanese people abroad, and people watching us through the media outlets, tend to magnify the whole picture. But the truth is that all protests so far remain peaceful ones, and a healthy way to express our opinion. so, no need to worry concerning security issues.

    Hey Eve.....

    I'm an African in America who is totally suspicious of American media. Can you tell me what exactly is going on in Lebanon?

    Hi Eve,

    As I see the events in Beirut unfold .. I can't help wondering in which crowd you are ?? in Al Shohadaa square or the Reyad Al Sollh square !! the other day I saw a girl standing alone in front of president El Hariri shrine reciting from the quran .. I thought this might be Eve .. some how she looked like the imaginary image I have for you !!

    Justa realbrotha,

    so all you're getting is Brent Sadler babbling on CNN: "Finally, thx to us, they are heading toward a democracy!" Sometimes, they make it seem as if chaos is everywhere, and as if we're heading toward a civil war. The truth is we were never this united. We probably needed a crisis like this to wake up, to realize we have had enough! no more foreign intervention, whether from Syria, Israel, or the US. Let them stop spreading the idea that we can't handle nor rule ourselves, because we don't buy it anymore.

    Glimmerman,

    I don't want to be categorized under titles and slogans, because all those "leaders" are serving their own interests according to me. What I want is total withdrawal of all foreign armies from my country. I want their hegemony to cease within our national institutions as well. I'm not sure what will be the situation on the Lebanese/Israeli borders in case of Hizbollah dismantlement, but one thing is for sure, people having their own wars on my land is bothering me a lot! Was there any doubt that this is where I stand?
