Crocodile tears

Are any of our leaders at all capable of calling us to order?!? Are they crying out loud just to get attention? Do they even feel the slightest obligation to the Lebanese nation? Or do they prefer to put on a hypocritical show of emotion every time something happens that shocks us and leaves us with a terrible sense of discomfort and fear. We are not safe in our country, not in our neighborhood, not even in our own homes. We cannot trust our neighbors and always check behind us to see if anyone is following. When will they sincerely feel for the nation, when will they behave like true leaders and lead us to prosperity and peace between us brothers? Do they really feel our sorrow?

As the crocodile our leaders nature is to cry and sob like a lost boy, to gain our sympathy, to provoke us to come closer to them and then to snatch at us...

  • Shirin,
    I have always felt inadequate in the company of artists. They have such an uncanny ability to create , to analyze and to see what most of us mortals cannot.
    Although I have often enjoyed your incisive take on the events in Lebanon I think that this last one is a masterpiece. Keep up the good work.
