Message to Lebanon

Message to Lebanon

Like most, my heart feels broken having seen and heard the terrifying accounts of pain and devastation caused by the blast in Beirut this week. Similar to the pandemic that at present is sweeping through the world, the horrendous blast in Beirut was without discrimination. Families and children are now helplessly left at the door of tomorrow asking, ‘Where has my home gone?’ Surely the time has come for the people of Lebanon to leave all their differences aside and work together for the cause of their own humanity? Lebanon’s brutal history of factionalism and in-fighting must come to an end. Outside forces are already standing-by to pounce and eat the remains unless they now do what is morally right for the future of the pure and innocent generations to come. O people of Lebanon, please show your courage and pull together to build a new nation of peace and unity in the beautiful land given by God, the gracious ‘milk’ of your snow-covered mountain peaks and the sweet ‘honey’ from your fragrant cedar woods. Help will come – insha Allah
