Wajdi Wehbe: No one has a monopoly on suffering.
To expand it for context:
If Yasser Salameh is a refugee, so is Tony Hanna. Even more, a refugee in his own country. His life has been marred by the same suffering, tragedy,
and injustice. The only difference is we've never showed Tony and many others the compassion they deserve. On the contrary, we've silenced them, ostracized them, while we know all too well what happened to the Palestinians. We talk so much about your cause, there's no room left for anyone else. What happened in 1976 in Damour, Jiye, Sadiyat, and Nahme, we're not allowed to talk about it. But what Tony Hanna said to Yasser Salameh, it's allowed. The truth is they're the product of an old wound that has never healed. What's happening in this court is a beginning
to consider and accept the other. Something must be said, something relevant, fundamental. No one has a monopoly on suffering, Your Honors.
Everyone knows who Lebanon's Christians are. You talked about defending your country while you lived in your fancy beach villas. You played the tourists during the war. Shopping in Paris, skiing in Switzerland.
You eat sushi. You speak French. Half the bombs that fell on you didn't have detonators. You don't know what suffering is. What a bunch of cry babies!
If it's ever possible to settle a dispute in a respectful manner, and consider an apology is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of decency.
You each believe you were in the right. The issue is which of you is at fault,
or more at fault. Do the words outweigh the physical aggression, or are they equally incriminating? Basically, a physical assault is unacceptable.
You can't take the law into your own hands, except for clear and imminent danger, meaning self-defense. At the same time, does an insult carry the same weight as physical assault, when the insult is demeaning and hurtful?
If it were me, I'd be in jail. But him, we arrest him by mail. Because he's Palestinian! This is bullshit!
-You insulted the police.
No, I insulted the situation.
Let me ask you a question, why did you say, "I wish Ariel Sharon had wiped you all out?"
-What's the big deal?
If the judge asks you, how will you answer?
-It felt right to say it.
That's not a good argument. Those words are loaded, Mr. Tony. What you said is very compleX.
-I don't understand.
The Palestinian cause is a whole different ball game. There's the UN, the NGOs, the humanitarian organizations... Everyone roots for the Palestinians. And don't forget, there are those who hate us. The Left, the liberals. By the way, many are Christians. They'd all be willing to skydive
just to defend Yasser Salameh. It's trendy to defend those people. So even if your opponent wants to settle out of court, they may force him not to.
