La Youmal: 30 years of Syrian Influence


Recently, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah has been taking his empowering position too seriously. He began pushing his ideas on Lebanon’s identity to be one with Syria, openly echoing Syrian extreemists that Lebanon and Syria have one people split in two countries. Some call it blasphemy, even treason to most Lebanese ears. While the circle has hardly ever criticized Sayyed Nasrallah’s statements, touching on and labelleing Lebanese identity goes way beyond one persons voice of opinion.

To balance, La Youmal wrote up a sketch to counter Nasrallah’s absurd and bias view of being one with Syria. Talks such as these, are seen directly as Syria’s agents or 3amiil in Lebanon. A mimic to accusations Nasrallah seldom accuse opposing political parties of being for Israel.
