    Arabs, what are you doing? Do you want to be refugees as well.?

    The problem is not the elite. It’s the people themselves

  • Dr. Rick says:

    Just get rid of Hezbollah once and for all. That terrorist organization has completely destroyed the Lebanese economy.

  • Gary Witherspoon says:

    After six years storage of 60,000 bags of ammonium nitrate why did this ignition take place? No one will ever know. This much is clear. The Republican Party Trump Administration is involved. Dollars to donuts

  • Partahanan Harahap says:

    Hahaha…

  • DejaVu says:

    The ammonium nitrate was purchased by the International Bank of
    Mozambique for Fábrica de Explosivos de Moçambique (FEM), a company that
    makes commercial explosives, according to Baroudi and Partners – the
    Lebanese law firm that represents the ship’s crew, in a statement dated
    August 5, 2020 CORNELDER, the company that manages the port of Beira,
    was never informed of the arrival of a ship with 2,750 tons of ammonium
    nitrate in Mozambique.

    “We are usually notified before a ship
    arrives. In this case, we never received a notification from a ship that
    came into the port of Beira with this name and this cargo ”, said
    António Libombo, deputy managing director of CORNELDER. He has been
    managing the port of Beira since 1998. Mozambique’s Ministry of
    Transport and Communications also said it had not been informed of a
    ship carrying this cargo that year.

    The Mozambique Explosives
    Factory (FEM) confirmed this Sunday (August 9th) that it had ordered the
    2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate and found that the cargo seized by the
    Lebanese authorities was due to another shipment such as the NITROPRIL
    HD, such as the imprint of the explosives -Bags from ORICA MINING
    SERVICES on photos, has been replaced. The order was placed by FEM in
    2013 with the Georgian company SAVORA, and the planned unloading
    location was the port of Beira in Mozambique, the official source of the
    Mozambican company LUSA announced.

    However, the cargo of the
    explosives manufacturer Rustavi Azot LLC was “never delivered” because
    the ship MV RHOSUS was detained in Beirut by order of the local
    authorities. With the ship getting stuck in Beirut, SAVORO finally sent a
    new shipment of ammonium nitrate through another ship. However, FEM has
    given up on this supplier because of “non-compliance” with the delivery
    times. FEM is owned by Moura, Silva & Filhos with headquarters in
    Póvoa de Lanhoso, Braga district.

    If nobody in Mozambique was waiting for the ammonium nitrate from Georgia, was the stop of the ship in Beirut “due to a technical defect” just a trick to deliver the cargo there?

    For Lebanon experts it is extremely unlikely that the organization was not at least informed about the storage of the chemical. The person who actually manages the port of Beirut is Wafiq Safa, Hezbollah security chief and brother-in-law of Hasan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s general secretary. Safa is in turn married to Nasrallah’s sister. Perhaps they deliberately wanted to keep the easily accessible explosives store open for Hezbollah?

  • Michal K says:

    Pretty much every government is more less corrupted. I just hope these people will build Beirut again from the ground and won’t be running away as refugees.

  • The president says:

    Watch how Saudi Arabia and the US will intervene in this vulnerable moment and start a proxy war against the Iranian influence in Lebanon. Protests will turn into brutal and violent rebellion and then soon funded terrorism by Saudi Arabia and the US to knock off the Iranian influence in Lebanon. Things are gonna get really messy and no side is morally right.

  • john toet says:

    *please note that DEVIL WORSHIP is the basis for all wrong doing. see the book CURSE OF CANAAN of the most honourable EUSTACE MULLINS. see also the testimonies of TOOS NIJENHUIS about child abuse, that TALMUD is a very important factor. we live in a world controlled by forces who obey the devil. these forces themselves are trapped and PUT IN A NARROW CORNER, and do not live in circumstances they choose, but circumstances arranged by the devil. THIS NEEDS TO STOP , AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.*

  • Garmen Lin says:

    Don’t bother with foreign intervention, if a government isn’t stable on its own, it deserves a revolution.

  • Jayanta Chakraborty says:

    One chemical explosion has effectively silenced the revolutionary voices from Lebanon. People of Lebanon are now interested in their future, rebuilding Beirut. No one bothers about what injustice Israel is doing. What the mighty US, UK, Israel and allies could not do in 70 years, one unfortunate explosion has done that. May people of Lebanon be blessed with a conflict less bright future. Israel is quietly smiling – “a hand of God”.

    We seek refuge in God against the devil.

    In The Name Of God The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful,

    When We decide to destroy a town, We command those corrupted by wealth [to reform], but they [persist in their] disobedience; Our sentence is passed, and We destroy them utterly. (16)

    17:16
    Al-Isra’, Aya 16

    Lebanon not all of them are angels among the poor and the rich you’ll find soldier of the devil people that agreed of corruption not necessarily wealth corruption but human values and African’s slavery you’d believe what is happening is sad, rather not judge by what we see and ear.

    Let’s keep on praying for the believers around the world. And let’s keep on or start asking forgiveness to The Almighty.

  • kiyari muhammadu says:

    Peacefully! Very sad. The reality about this protest is, the initiators of the Beirut blast are the responsible for the protests. Everything was already been planned & organized since before the blast.
    The painful thing is, how the victims of the blast are being manipulated and being used in worsening the condition in Lebanon, all for the benefit of the attackers.

    West trying to enter Lebanon, can’t say govt responsible or there some 1 making this protest from behind to unstable a nation just Arab spring

  • Tony Chacko says:

    The only answer is for eradicating Hezbollah and any Islamic Parties from governance – as they are the root cause for Lebanon’s degradation to stone-ageism. This is the time for people of Lebanon to whole-heartedly unite and reinstate a sane ethical Christian Govt. – sounds impossible and crazy, but will the Lebanese realise that any Islamic despotic ruler/s will only rule by intimidation and hardcore stone-age policies.
