Comment on #LB4Gaza: A Unified Lebanese NewsCast In Solidarity With Gaza by Gianni

Blog Baladi Comments - 2 hours 20 min ago


Thank you so much in your assessment of my mastery (or not) of the English language. Why racist? Can’t anyone express an opinion before being stung on by yellow jackets?

Foreign countries would not be tearing you apart if your countrymen (women) were not willing participants. Mercenaries available to the highest bidder.

As for how the people are dying in Syria…. Off course it is not the murderous thug Assad and his mercenaries from Tehran and HA dropping barrel bombs or using chemical weapons to kill their own brethren. Off course not! You guys are a lost cause. You exposed yourself as a phoney. I am sure in your mind Hamas rockets are righteous; so is HA’s destruction of Lebanon to save a child killer!!

BTW; thank God I don’t live in that “slice of heaven”.
