Another Assasination - Pierre Gemayel
November 22, 2006

Yesterday was yet another sad and depressing day for Lebanon and all the Lebanese. Pierre Gemayel, the 34 year old industry minister and son of former Lebanese President Amin Gemayel, was shot dead in broad daylight in the New Jdeideh area north of Beirut. Reports said that a sport utility vehicle either rammed or pulled alongside Gemayel's silver KIA sedan and then was fired upon through the driver's side window, hitting the minister and at least two others. {More}

May he rest in Peace.

Whenever we think that the country is improving and we get our hopes up, something like this happens. Ever since Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Harriri was assasinated, many have followed and since none of them have been solved, I guess these damn terrorists consider it "ok" to kill politicians in Lebanon. With Gemayel's assasination, the Cabinet has lost 7 members during the past two weeks! Gemayel did not deserve this, he simply was standing up for what he believed in. He was anti-Syrian and a main leader of the Christian Phlange Party. The consequences of this terrorist attack will prove to be devastating as christians throughout the country vowed revenge against the March 8 coalition and pro-Syria Lebanese President Emile Lahoud. Dont look good. At first it was Israel and Hezbullah using Lebanon as a battle ground and now, even with the international forces around, it got worse cos it is now the battle ground for American and Syria; keeps getting worse when we think it is getting better!

Whether it was Syria or not, I have just one thing to say: Whoever you are, get the fuck out of our country and leave us the hell alone!!!
