Jesus, another day another drama. So Jean Assy got arrested for insulting the president through Twitter. First, to all those who are saying "I disapprove of what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it" - that's NOT Voltaire who said that, it's Evelyn Beatrice Hall summing up Voltaire's philosophy (so please, no quick pop psychology).
Yes, I admit, back in the day of Emile Lahoud in his second coming, Members of the Parliament and ministers were bashing him publicly left and right - did they go to prison as Jean Assy did? No. Should they have? Probably (I am sure there is a law for that somewhere). So - am I against Jean? No, not as an individual and I sincerely think he should be released.
