Great quotes...

"... Les chrétiens doivent penser profondément à ce problème qui constitue la menace numéro un pour leur survie, ajouté à l’émigration massive de ses jeunes diplômés ..."

- Samy Gemayel, son of Amin Geyamel. (Ed. trans. "... Christians ought to think profoundly about this problem, which constitutes the number one menace to their survival, added to the massive emigration of their young graduates ..."). This answer was in response to the question "... Face à l'explosion démographique des musulmans du Liban, quelle est la perspective des chrétiens?..." (Ed. trans. "In the face of the demographic explosion of Lebanese Muslims, what is the Christian perspective?"). So, a simple demographic change which results in a decreased portion of the population (and which presumably leads to a corresponding diminution in political representation/power) is now equivalent to an existential threat?

As long as the leadership of the various Lebanese factions equate the maintenance of their political primacy with their very "survival"the troubles will continue...

  1. we must admit that our current state is no longer viable,
    we must remain true to our past and to the sacrifies of our martyrs who have battled and lost their lives in defense of freedom and peace in Lebanon.
    we must beleive in the pluralism of our society, because no one dominant culture can impose its orientations on the others...
    we want a State that protects its various cultural entities, organizing harmonious relation between them.
    The solution is in a new constitution formula, that combines the divergent interests of each culture, in one united state!
    "7allna ntawwir el nizam"...samy gemayel we are all proud of you,lebanese kataeb party will reborn again, you are the new leader of the christians in Lebanon. The real lebanese State will be established correctly...we are counting on you!!!

    Can agree with all of this, but Lebanon won't get there with the attitude expressed by SG (as quoted)

  3. why? what is wrong with his attitude?
    is that about developing our current constitutional formula?
    these propositions are based on detailed studies of the lebanese modern history!!
    These attitude, and these arguments, are based on true facts.
