Fitzgerald: The end of Lebanon

* Lifted from JW

The end of Lebanon dates from that day, in 1982, when Bashir Gemayel was blown up — the same day he, in a speech, first used the word “dhimmitude.” Lebanon was always the redoubt and refuge of Christians, who found in the mountainous region, the Mountain of Lebanon, Mont Liban, a place where, far from the centers of Islam, they could survive. But they didn’t reproduce enough, and the Muslims outbred them. And the Muslim Arabs known as the “Palestinians” contributed to the demographic degringolade.

However, proximity to those Christians did raise the level of the local Muslims, or at least some of them. In the case of Lebanon, it was the Sunni merchant class.

And power, which had been carefully distributed between Christians, Sunnis, and Shi’a (with the Druse also not being forgotten) according to the census of 1935, remained intelligently split. However, after World War II, slowly but surely, the French withdrew as protectors of the Maronites. The Maronites were the most self-assured and least “Arab” of the Christians. They knew that their presence in the area predated the arrival of the Arabs and of Islam, and they did not make the mistake of thinking that the linguistic and cultural imperialism of the Arabs, a natural accompaniment of the arrival of Muslims, made them into Arabs — that is, into more than “Arabic-using” Lebanese.

And then the Americans came in, in 1956, to rescue the old order, but that was it. The “Palestinian” Arabs kept multiplying, and in their villages (called, quite inaccurately, “refugee camps”), where their needs were met by UNRWA, they had time to plot and plan. They destabilized and they threatened, now the Christians here, now the Shi’a there.

The End of Lebanon

Meanwhile, just as Muslims outbred non-Muslims, the Shi’a Muslims outbred not only the Christians, but also the Sunnis. The same kind of overbreeding accounts for the steady, growing Shi’ite demographic dominance over the Sunnis in Iraq. And it is they who now constitute a plurality in the country, and think they should rule the roost. Their leaders — first Fadlallah and now Nasrallah — are troglodytic, but they are troglodytes who have an Iran that, thanks to Carter and Brzezinski, was taken over by the least nationalistic (Iranian nationalism is a powerful anti-Islamic force) and most Islamic of regimes, that which now rules over the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Were the Shi’a of Iran only to seize Greater and Lesser Tunb, or to wreak havoc and overturn the Ruler (oops, King) of Bahrain, if they were only to cause trouble for Kuwait, and trouble in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, that would be a Good Thing for the Camp (as yet unrecognized) of Infidels, for it would worry, demoralize, divide, and ultimately weaken the Camp of Islamic Jihad.

And similarly, were their only victims in Lebanon other Muslims, one might not mind. But it is Lebanon as a haven for Christians that is now threatened, in the end. And none of the ruling elites in the Western world has given a thought to providing a permanent place of refuge in the Middle East itself to the more than a million Christians who have left, or will have to leave, Iraq. They could do this, for example, by moving many of them to Lebanon (and forcing the Shi’a out, by popular demand, so that they go to Iraq, among other Shi’a Arabs). Or they could move them to the “West Bank,” and force out the Muslim Arabs who represent a permanent threat to Israel. They can’t be allowed into Western countries, having been raised on a steady diet of hysteria and hate, but they could be given space in Iraq, replacing those lost Assyrians and Chaldeans. Those Assyrians and Chaldeans, if they wish to remain in the Middle East, should find their natural homes in Lebanon, or the “West Bank” within permanent Israeli protection, or possibly in Syria. But Syria could only be a haven for them if one assumes that the Alawites will begin to see the light and stop doing the Iranian bidding in order to prove that they are “real, if Shi’a, Muslims,” and continue to keep the local Muslims in check — which is the only protection the Syrian Christians now possess.

But who in the Western world now thinks of saving the Christians through such intelligent, and in another day, obvious population transfer?

It isn’t done. We prefer to stay pure, by never mentioning such things. Thus we allow millions of people to be booted out, with nowhere to go, because we simply can’t begin to think in realistic terms about such transfers, which were the norm, not the exception, throughout human history — including the history of the last century.

  1. It’s almost a miracle that Lebanon wasn’t targeted for death like Israel long ago. But its death is now at hand. And once again we have those wonderful palestinians to help lead this real nakba.

  2. Long live Hizbullah the Lebanese national resistance and Palestine from the river to the sea may God punish the so called ‘chosen people’ by sending them to desert for another 40 years. I glorify the great leader his eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrullah in hope for another defeat of the not-anymore-invincible army by the hands of the Lebanese people with all their political and religious stances.

  3. Hezbollah has force, power and a leadership that bows to Iran.

    Hezbollah demands, even though neither a majority or supported by the majority, a say in everything. If that demand is not met, they will crush any opposition to it.

    Hezbollah is committed to the destruction of a State that now most Muslim countries recognize, follows rhetoric against a faith that Allah Himself created and that Islam itself believes in.

    Hezbollah is and will remain a terrorist organisation until it is disbanded. Its funding base is very simple, 60 per cent from the Islamic Republic of Iran (its real boss), 10 per cent from impossed taxes locally and 30 per cent from counterfeit product distribution in the Middle East and in North Africa.

    Signed – A Muslim not fooled by radicalism and proudly responsible for the stopping of over 2.3 million dollars in funding to Hezbolllah in the last 12 months alone.

  4. Another point, Fitzgerald is a failed would-be academic that cashes in on selling books to an already far-right client base and has no understanding at all on what he is talking about.

    Notwithstanding the above, the State of Lebanon really has no reason to exist and its fractured status will remain until it is absorbed into Turkey and Syria. Its legitimacy exists because of French and British cartography.

  5. Solkhar the follower of the false prophet wrote “… the State of Lebanon really has no reason to exist and its fractured status will remain until it is absorbed into Turkey and Syria …”

    Turkey and Syria? Probably both Ezekiel 38 & 39 nations, and Damascus will be reduced to building rubble … (the burden of Damascus):

    “This is the divine revelation about Damascus. “Damascus will no longer be a city. It will become a pile of rubble.”
    ( Prophet Isaiah 17:1 )

  6. Is that in the Aramaic, Greek, Old Latin, Revised Latin, King James, Dutch-Reformed or Good News for Modern Man version of the word of God?

    I love these evangalists that spend their days, money and effort in committe rooms trying to find logical arguments to give to other religions. All very unChristian of them and condemned by most Christian groups has being corrupt sinners – and they are right.

  7. All of the Biblical / Christian message is foolishness to those who are
    perishing, Solkhar – it won’t really matter which version/s you choose
    to mock and blaspheme against, Solkhar – the result will be the same.

    For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

    For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but to us which are saved it is the power of God.

    For the word of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us who are saved it is the power of God.

    For the word of the cross seems foolish to those who are on the way to destruction; but to us who are on the way to salvation it is the power of God.

    For the Message of the Cross is foolishness to those who are on the way to perdition, but it is the power of God to those whom He is saving.

    More versions there, all rejected by you in favour of the lies of
    allah and his false prophet – it matters little which version you
    mock & deny, or do you have a particular favourite?

  8. What does it matter? why do people bother bickering and disputing one another.

    Whatever will be, will be.

    Just focus on listening to Jesus, and keep watching for his return. Besides, our King, the King of Kings, is going to come after a period that would see every city in the world fall to ruin. So get over what people/nations/regions are doing; keep your eyes on the Lord.

  9. Damn those muslims!
    everywhere they go they destroy everything!
    May God protect this pour country…. from the evil Islam

  10. i am from egypt i hate lebanon and lebanese so much they are so foolish and selfish ..they like their self so much.. i hate them..

  11. Ayyy Egyptian and proud … relax ya zaki. If it wasn’t for the pyramids that your pagan ancestors built, you’d be lucky to get a plane full of tourists every 10 years. Does it pain you to see that there is still a country in the middle east that has a Christian president? Do you hate the Lebanese because we have progressed after being ass raped by all of our neighbours during the civil war? Take it easy and enjoy Morsi …. LOL

    May Bachir Gemayel continue to rest in peace. We still carry on with the cause. Salibna bi 3aredna maghrous!!
