A Small Hint From the Past…

Before:

First they came for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Communist….

Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Jew….

Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up, because I was a Protestant….

Then they came for me, and by that time there was no one left to speak up for me!

“Rev. Martin J. Niemoller speaking on the Nazi era in Germany, 1945”

Today:

First they came for the Palestinians, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t a Palestinian….

Then they came for Hezbollah, and I didn’t speak up, because I wasn’t from Hezbollah….

Then they came for the Lebanese, and the Arabs didn’t speak up because they are not Lebanese….

Then they will come for you, Arabs, and by that time there will no one be left to speak up for you!

    that's what i'm talking about, the israelians and the americans are taking the arabs one by one, all the arabs think that they r smart by taking the neutral side.. but that's wrong, it is coming to them one day… i think it is time for arabs to become one and fight back, it's the best chance to prove ourselves..samedoon w mentaseron inshalla…
