While social media is showing the entire worlds’ support following the sad Paris attack, many Lebanese feel disappointed that their own devastation is not perceived by the world with the same sympathy.
Killing innocent people must be faced by all nations with a “NO” regardless of where it took place. Solidarity should not keep the blind eye on those countries which names are forever associated with killing and terrorism such as Lebanon, Palestine and Syria.

When I saw the pictures of the Opera house lit with the Lebanese flag (below), I couldn’t but feel pity for those who “Photoshopped” the original supporting France, only for the mere purpose of having their fake post shared.

It’s the sad ugly truth, but unfortunately it is the truth.
I wish the whole world would support Lebanon in actions and not just colors or lights. I wish the plots on the region would stop and people go back to live in harmony as they used to. But let’s not fake the ugly truth and believe the unreasonable ugly facts that we are forgotten in the past of wars, terrors and corrupted governments.
This article of the Australian ABC news net tells the story of Australia’s support to France.
We support you France, we support history of cooperation and we support the Lebanese families living there but we tell the world: “Look at us”!

I really try to stay away from politics topics, basically because nothing there makes sense and my writings are based on researching and logical deductions. But then when some heavy contents in the headlines strikes me like this article, I just pause dazzled and can’t fight the urge of publishing a word about it, asking the experts from the Lebanese community who like to discuss politics as they breath: How could this make sense?
Australians at risk of IS cyber attacks
The article Australians at risk of IS cyber attacks published yesterday says that the Syrian government-backed group of hackers “Syrian Electronic Army“, responsible for attacks on major media outlets like the BBC, Al Jazeera and the Washington Post, created the Cryptolocker for the benefit of their enemies Islamic State extremists!
IS in its turn is believed to have cyber-invaded tens of thousands of Australian victims in less than three months, yet the facts are not confirmed!
World War I and II clearly identified allies and enemies but today’s war against terrorists is a big false title under which many attacks are accomplished operating behind shrouded secrecy an claimed responsibilities.
