Thriller - The Hassan Nasrallah Version

Pro-Nasrallah supporters?

The protesters who flooded the streets of Beirut last night reminded me of a particular kind of horror movie, the one dealing with the living dead. The pro-Hezbollah hoards could be perfect figurants in a remake of Michael Jackson's Thriller video.

At 11 PM last night I was enjoying a business dinner in an Italian restaurant when the news of the protest hit, two minutes later the place was empty and the first thing that came to my mind were those lyrics:

Its close to midnight and something evils lurking in the dark;
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes,Youre paralyzed
'Cause this is thriller, thriller night

Indeed, the mob that idolizes Hassan Nassrallah to the point of divinity is brain washed to the point of death. Yesterday's incident should be called "the night of the brain-dead".

The pro-Nasrallah idiots burnt what remained of Lebanon's summer season because of a sequence lampooning their bearded idol in "Basmat Watan", a comedy show on the Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation.
1.5 million tourists were expected but now poof...they have probably disappeared, thanks to Hezbollah's radical religious and political ideology shouted in mosques and husseiniyas, broadcast on Manar TV and other media, written in the party's books, newspapers and other publications and last but not least financed at the rate of US$500 million per year by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

And instead of condemning the violent protest, Nasrallah praised "the brave people who were hurt" and urged them to go back home. Nagib Mikati, the ex-Prime Minister, criticized "Basmat Watan" and condoned the protests.

First it was the Prophet Mohammed pyromaniac protest but now Sayyed Nasrallah has his own "I want to burn something" fan club. Indeed, As Safir wrote today that the mighty party members of Hezbollah protected the Chiyah church from the mob. No Danish embassy or LBC office to burn there, then what about a church? "no" says the Hezb! Alright then what about some rubber tires?

What this lynch party actually burnt was the prospect of jobs and money for themselves and their families. It is not their fault but Hezbollah's ideology that chooses misery, idolatry and martyrdom instead of the prospect for a better future...Thriller!
