" Israel invaded Lebanon twice in the past and occupied parts of the country for 22 years and in the end they had to leave.
We will build all what was destroyed by Israel but the sad thing is that too many innocent people including many children lost their lives in the latest Israeli brutality.
When I was 15, my favorite T-shirt was one that had a drawing of Israeli warplanes bombing Beirut. "Beirut will never die. It will survive forever," it read in English. More than 20 years later, I am confident that "Lebanon will never die and will survive forever."
