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”!
