Woe to those Who
Oppress Our Lebanese Refugees In Israel
By: Elias Bejjani
Isaiah 5/20-30/ "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe to those who are mighty to drink wine, and champions at mixing strong drink; who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice for the innocent! Therefore as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as the dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust; because they have rejected the law of Yahweh of Armies, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 5/20-30)
For those evil, envious, creatures who have no conscience, mercy or faith in their hearts, for those who falsely and unfairly accuse our Lebanese who are taking refuge in Israel to be agents and traitors, we loudly say: Your stance is wrong, not fair, not right, and not informed.
Please take note that our beloved people who took refuge in Israel in year 2000 are patriotic, decent, faithful, loving, caring and heroes. They never ever betrayed our dear Lebanon, the land of the Holy Cedars, or our Lebanese cause of freedom, independence, sovereignty and rights.
Do not ignore facts or keep a blind eye on history events and actual realities. It is a must to know that for 25 years our people in south Lebanon (those are now living in Israel) were totally abandoned by all the Lebanese governments (between 1975- 2000) and left alone to fight and defend their for lives, honour, properties, existence and land against all sorts of Islamists, Terrorists, and Arabists.
Initially they courageously fought the Palestinian and Arab armed militias (PLO and other factions) who by force tried to turn their land in a battlefield in a bid to wage military terrorist attacks against Israel and after that they stood against the Iranian terrorist Hezbollah thugs.
They accepted the Israeli help and had no other choice as did all the Christians in Lebanon during the war era between 1975-1990. They were never puppets or agents for Israel or any other regional powers, on the contrary they were decent and honest allies with Israel with very solid mutual understanding to this reality.
Meanwhile Hezbollah, Amal Shiite Movement, the Arabist groups, the Fundamentalists etc were and still are mere mercenaries for Syria, Iran, and other regional countries.
In year 2000 Israel withdraw from South Lebanon and was not forced militarily by any means to do so. The withdrawal was unilateral and for mere domestic Israeli reasons and not because of the terrorist Iranian Hezbollah. Hezbollah therefore did not liberate the South Lebanon from the Israeli occupation as falsely alleges, brags and lies
6000 Southern Lebanese, Muslims, Druze and Christians took refuge in Israel because Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah leader openly threatened to cut their neck and slaughter them.
Since than they were not allowed to return to Lebanon peacefully and without persecution and forged trials. Those who did risk and return were put exposed to unfair and biased trials on charges of betrayal, treason and ripped of their civil rights.
In this patriotic context all those who pass away in Israel have all left a will to be buried In Lebanon because they love their land and want to embrace its soil till the Judgment Day.
Our people in Israel deserve to be awarded with the highest medals of appreciation and honour and not evilly and unfairly tagged with treason and betrayal false charges.
In conclusion, our people in Israel are true Lebanese, soul, heart, patriotism and mind. They are not traitors, never were and never ever will be. Their case is righteous and needs to be dealt with fairly as soon as possible. But Sadly the Lebanese government is totally controlled by the terrorist Hezbollah who is viciously and vindictively hindering their honourable return to their beloved country. By the end, sooner or later, Hezbollah is going to be defeated and Lebanon shall be free again and our people in Israel will happily return to their beloved Lebanon.
