"As the situation stands, the promises Obama made to the American people and the Muslim community ostensibly went to waste as he made no tangible efforts to eliminate poverty in the US and deracinate Islamophobia in the country and the West. On the contrary, he has consciously augmented the phenomenon to a degree of inconceivable horror. For instance, the only reaction he showed to the sacrilegious act of the Quran burning in Afghanistan at the hands of a bunch of sadomasochist reservists and the massacre of innocent Afghans went no further than a few words of apology."
"Almost a century ago, Lebanon's internationally renowned poet, Kahlil Gibran, wrote a marvelous piece, "You have your Lebanon, I have my Lebanon," in which he contrasted the country's self-centered, plundering, bickering elites with the common folk who are Lebanon's heart and soul. Gibran was right then, and his observations hold true today. Lebanon's leaders and those who care about the future of the country ought take note -- listen to Lebanon's people, and help pull the country back from the brink, before it's too late."
