Ne t’en fait pas de bile jeune homme, je ferais de mon mieux que tu survive cette nuit

On April 10, 1973, an Israeli commandos, headed by Ehud Barak, assassinated the three leaders living in the same building in Verdun.
Do you recall the names of Kamal Adwan, Kamal Nasser, and Youssef el Najjar? They were Palestinian leaders whose strategy is never to get involved in local politics in the States the Palestinian refugees reside in. Israel assassinated the 3 of them in Beirut, one night on April 1973
Yasser Arafat and Abut Iyad, wo had the propensity of getting immersed in Local politics in lebanon, and living very close by on the same street, were spared to continue destabilizing lebanon.
The problem with complaining about the system is that the system can’t hear you. Only people can.
Before dismantling democratic system, the far right parties consistently break the law, when their leaders form governments
Daesh (ISIS) leaders are committing mass suicide by being blown with detonating belt. Most of them foreign members who have no chance to go anywhere.
A person is mentally vegetative when he can no longer take in a new idea
To simplify a notion you need to be able draw a model of it to explain it.
Freedom and leverage is great, but it comes with responsibility.  With the social network we’re all curators/concierges/impresarios
Injustice is mainly committed by people holding power: They can get away with paying their dues to the community (Ibn Khladoun)
Nihilism: Un soldat voit un arbrissau au milieu de la steppe et la coupe “Why you are standing alone? Son intelligence suprême des moyens lui avait fait perdre le jugement suprême des fins ( Case of Berry)
Eclopés des guerres: Trop malade pour les tranchées, pas assez pour être évacuer dans les hôpitaux surcharges de l’arriére.
Ils passaient non pas á côté du danger, mais á côté de la gloire
Au café, Claire s’invita et s’assit sur les genoux de Peppino Garibaldi, une maniére comme une autre de contribuer á la victoire (inciter les Italens a declarer la guerre á  l’ Empire Autricien)
In 1918, all belligerent nations were exhausted and weakened. France and England knew that they lost the war. And then USA stepped in. Germany was then denied finances and commerce with USA and also knew that the game was over.
Je compris que l’éloquence, accouplé avec une multitude consentante, était une source d’ivresse. Rien de pire que d’être frustré de ce vertige sans compensation sexuelle.
What’s wrong with people, in order to make small talks, invariably ask you if you believe in God. I’m pretty sure, if 7 bilions say Yes, he will still force his dog to nod consent. 
They will never be satisfied with their questions: Do you believe in God? They cannot admit that clergies doubt God at least once a day.
It does Not matter what is your religion: If you don’t carry one of the colonial passports, then your assassination is an invisible occurrence
In capitalist culture, the getting is ever more important than the having.  We ended up storing somewhere what we have purchased.
I have been hearing for a couple of years that it is the foreign powers who have guaranteed Lebanon’s security but Not his stability. If that make any sense, let these rotten foreign powers get off our back
The bloody rats of Daesh in Mosul: how they are spending their nights and days? Using terrified kids as shield?

Notes and comments on FB and Twitter. Part 52

I want to accompany Elon Musk on his daily work “randonnés”: I like to be first to observe the onset of his Insanity

If a massive solar gamma ray charge does Not ravage earth in the next 50 years, it is inevitable that data cloud will crash completely before then.

We will have to restart saving our lousy knowledge accumulation

If a meteorite fails to crash on earth within a century, it is still  inevitable that a massive wild fire will burn the land.

Our crazy species survived near extinction several times, but it was due to Natural calamities. This time around, we will Not survive extinction from man-made chain reactions of catastrophes.

The moment we try to “Control” one chain reaction, we ignite another one.

Instead of giving me a lift, they wave to mean: “No one in his right head walks in this hot weather”

“Ton rêve est une Egypte, mais toi une momie avec son masque d’or”

L’étique de la quantité? Le nombre limite (red line) óu la quantité des experience équivalentes déborde le sens de l’étique des régles du jeu d’une société.

Priver les gens des illusions (terre promise…) et la nuit toute noire les ensevelie

On appelle un homme “absurd” s’il fixe la mort avec une attention passionée, sans illusion et sans espoir

Le malheur naturel de notre condition de mortel que rien ne peut nous consoler, sauf le divertissement et les coutumes

L’équilibre de l’évidence et du lyrisme est nécessaire pour accede a la clarté de l’émotion? Peut-etre que nos generations modernes qui entende la musique en boucle ont cessé de réflechir aux evidences proposes par le lyrism

Netherlands’ refugee integration: 10,000 Euro to learn the language within 3 years, otherwise you have got to pay back this sum. Question: If those who learned the language cannot secure a job, how can the failed refugee pay back?

Incarcerate the refugee in a camp until the political situation is stabilized back home for repatriation? Does this mean that Syria should Not expect any normalcy within these 3 years condition by the Netherlands?

I’ll be happy to spend 6 months in the Netherlands to learn their awkward language if paid 10,000 Euro

Hassan Kamel el Sabba7 Lebanese electrical genius found dead in his car on March 31, 1935 at the age of 41. He was about to return to Lebanon from the USA in order to transform arid regions in the Arab World in Green Sahara after he discovered solar cell in 1930. He received 11 Prizes for Excellence and registered 52 scientific patents. Among his achievements are alternative currents, photovoltaic pannels, Hertzien transmission and synchronous motors

Quand l’economie decline et le souverain et sa class de noblesse recourent a la force come seul moyen: “Le peuple prend peur, devient deprime, cherche protection contre le souverain en recourant au mensonge, le ruse, la fraude. Cela influe sur le caractere des sujets qui se gate…” (Ibn Khladoun). Saudi Kingdom fits this description.

Nothing changed in the Arab World in the last 600 years. Les etats rentiers sont caracterises par une forte concentration du pouvoir. Le veritable noblesse de base n’appartient qu’a ceux qui ont l’esprit de clan. les revenus des butins sont difficiles a distinguer parmi le souverain et la classe de nobles. (Ibn Khaldoun)

La puissance politique du souverain depend du niveau des richesses produites par le travail de l’homme et des conditions de la repartition de la richesse generee. The Assabiyya (loyalty to the tribe) deteriorate with the decline of the economy (Ibn Khladoun)

“Les Francais font des revolutions: Ils ne savent pas faire des réformes” Alexis de Toqueville in 1848. Les Libanais ne savent faire aucune de ces 2 alternatives
