Current Events

March 15, 2005

For those of you who have been following the news in Lebanon recently, here's a great picture, via Powerline. Back when the reformist leader Harari was assasinated a month ago, thousands of Lebanese staged a rare, risky and peaceful demonstration in Beirut, calling for the exit of Syrian occupation and the replacement of the Syrian-influenced Lebanese government. A week later, Hezbollah, the Shiite political/social/terrorist group staged a much larger rally, saying they didn't want foreign (read American) involvement in their country, but that Syria was welcome to stay. So a week after that, today, hundreds of thousands of Lebanese came back even stronger calling for Syria to leave. Interestingly, the protesters were a solid mix of Christians, Muslims, and Druse in a showing of unity. If I remember right, one of their cries was "Long live Syria, in Syria!"Oh, and I must give kudos to the Lebanese rulers and police who are letting them demonstrate peacefully.
