Before anything, I join most of my compatriots in presenting my warmest condolences to Private Rooney’s loved ones and the UN family, and wish all injured a speedy recovery.
I waited a couple of days before reacting to this heinous crime, only to find what I feared: a shy response of the #UnitedNations and the international community to #Hezbolla ‘s message to every player enjoying #Lebanon as his own chess board.
The message is also directed internally to the Lebanese, reaffirming this militia’s state-within-the-state untouchable status, which has been going on since the 80s, preventing the rise of a true sovereign and independent nation. One that is a founder of your esteemed institution’s human rights chart.
Needless to say, the political mafia in power does not represent me, nor any free Lebanese. So whatever comes out of them regarding this crime or any other subject, doesn’t concern us. They were elected under the rule of the armed militia, therefore illegal.
Mr. #AntonioGuterres, what will you say to Sean’s family and fiancee? How will you bring them justice? By launching one more investigation in our #bananarepublic where witnesses and their families are held at gunpoint?
Sean’s justice is now another building block of Lebanon’s free people fight for a strong state, where the only party capable of bearing arms should be the #LebaneseArmy, with no need for any peacekeeping forces, should all militias hand in their weapons according to #resolution1559. And by way, why isn’t it put into effect yet?
Is Hezbolla and its circle of friends such a powerful lobby, turning your noble message of peace into a mere slogan?
Lebanon has been crumbling under their dictatorship, run by the threat of their guns (as you have now experienced yourselves once more), shaded by the false impression of a ridiculous democracy.
Will the great nations defending the right to live in dignity and freedom, under the rule of law, for every human being, sit back and watch while my country falls deeper into the abyss of darkness?
A lot can be done. We all know it. All it takes is will.
You can. Will you?
Respectfully,
An independent Lebanese citizen
