It’s clear to all those who follows the news, that the pressure on Syria in regard to Harirri’s assassination has been defused and reached the lowest level ever since it has started. While this is not good news for many people in Lebanon and other countries, but surely is great news for all the Syrians.
Having the Syrian people standing by their government throughout this dilemma and forgetting all the unsolved domestic issues; gives a great example of the Syrian patriotism at the street level.
Just now, Syrians, can go back to their normal daily life and suffer from poverty, corruption and bureaucracy.
The government, on the other hand, will do the same and get back to its previous domestic policies of neglecting and ignoring the best interests of the Syrian people. It will resume the continuous effort of bringing Syrian citizens down to misery in exchange of the interest of some individuals.
The lesson is learnt; Syrian people are willing to forgive when their country is in danger, and the government is very good at deploying the public forgiveness to get rid of that danger.
But the question is: Will the government appreciate its people and start acting accordingly? Or nothing will change?
So Syrian people, until we get answers, go on and resume your previous life, as we have prevailed!
