Siniora Government honors Founders of Civil War militias

Living Martyr Marwan Hmadeh announced today the issuing of new postage stamps honoring the martyrs of Lebanon. What's a better way to honor our fallen heroes than licking their behinds? Not to mention the fun that can be had by matching the destination country with the stamp of the personality it had assassinated (or just vanished in Libya's case.) The government played it the Lebanese way by trying to include martyrs from all sects in the collection, but some groups will argue that they were underrepresented and that Danny Chamoun, Abbass El Mousawi, and Elie Hobeika are just as worthy of a stamp.

Martyrs apparently are a big thing and they deserve to be honored. After all we have over a hundred thousand of them since 1975. Martyrs rank second among our national treasures only trailing Emigrees who number well over a million over the same period of time.

Now if I remember correctly, a good chunk of the one hundred thousand were martyred by what was then known as Militias. Thankfully those are now extinct. While the Kataeb and the PLO were the stars of the 70's, most historians would rank Amal, LF, and PSP militias as the top 3 Lebanese killers of the 80's. Images of the Founders of these 3 militias will now grace your outgoing letters to the emigrants who have sworn off Lebanon because of them.

At Least this is one thing I personally wouldn't have to deal with since I have sworn off Liban Post. They happen to have very pleasant and competent employees which is something I abhor.

Jamal,

you're too funny! I can't stop laughing and I can't think of anything to say other than "3afek, jebta 3al mazbout" lol On the other hand, as you said, it could prove to be a tremendously fun game to play with your friends at some bar having to match the destination country with the stamp of the personality, assassinated or missing! For once, it would be a change from the regular match sticks game or the same old round of pool!

wait wait wait!!!

are they actually going to declare sayyid moussa sadr a martyr, ya3ni he's not officially "mughayyab" anymore??

so i can't keep leading rallies calling out,

"siyyid moosi ya eemeeem,
allah yroddak 3a libneeen."

"issi issi banna eyyeee,
tayyib miyyit banna eyyeee,
siyyi moosi banna eyyeee.'

anyways, glorious ramadan for those who seek its glory.

Jamal, don't kill this blog, i'm sick of opening this page only to see " Siniora Government honors Founders of Civil War militias", great post, but i'm sure that juicy things are happening everyday, so take 5 minutes and write something.
Besides, i'd hate to delete one of my favorite bookmarks.
Yalla get to work.
