The Blood of a City.

The July 2006 WAR [7arb tammouz el 2006]

- Fairuz
- Majida el Roumi
- Julia Boutros
Are back to hug our radios and our televisions.
You can forget about dancing on Haifa and Nancy's songs for a long while to come. Tourism and fun are not on Lebanese schedules for years to come.

The infamous music that accompanied many Lebanese during the war years is back:
"maktab el tahrir... fi khabaren jadid"
[a music that played whenever there were breaking news to deliver... Lebanese became addicted and dependent to this tune - it became to mean the difference between life and death for them.]

We, as Lebanese, all agree who our ennemies are (and they are many).
We, as Lebanese, also know how to defend and embrace one another, in times of need.
We, as Lebanese, don't want our children to die.
We, as Lebanese, don't want to see our homes and everything we built and worked for destroyed.
We, as Lebanese, ask for this rutheless invasion to stop.
We will resolve our internal shit later on, but for now... somebody has to do something.

This has to stop!
Please stop!

AND YES! BEIRUT HAS A PROUD SOUL.

BUT IT CAN ALSO BLEED.

We as lebaneese indeed have many many ennemies , the problem is that we call them friends.
