  1. Ok let me break this
    Hezbollah isnt a terrorist group aiming for lebanese peace other than that i assure you lebanon is tge country of freedom and it should not be represented by the war state of tripoli caused by syrian crisis and israelian guys who want to break our lebanese strength otherrr than that hizbollah members dont wear that outfit shown and lebanese kids are not free playing with guns infact our kids are the best of all lebanon they are addicted to football and argele shisha driving motorcycles even some cars so dont only look on the dark side of lebanon the bright side is way more

  2. A very good friend of mine is Lebanese-Palestinian. He is really a smart guy and since he moved to Europe he has changed a lot. I think that a lot of people in the Middle East just need to move out from that environment to understand how sick is all this.
    I really feel sad to see this people wasting their money for useless weapons. Provoking a civil war just destroys your own country and strenghten your enemies! Why it is so difficult for them to understand? They could use all the money they waste on weapons to build a better country, improve the infrastructures, send kids to school and so forth so on.
    Education is what makes a country grow quickly, not weapons nor a civil war!
