I am at loss for words. What can one say in front of that scene that keeps repeating itself for years and years?
A lady was on her way in a cab to the restaurant where she works at in Beirut Souks, another went ahead of her neighbor with plans, a lot of employees were going about their jobs in the surrounding companies and a group of teenagers were enjoying themselves before a rigged car exploded. The target was former Finance Minister and Saad Hariri’s advisor Mohamad Chatah who was tweeting from his iPad… his bodyguard, Tarek Bader also perished with him. Kevork Takajian, Mohammad Nasser Mansour, Syrian national Saddam Al Khanshoury who happened to be on the street also died. RIP. Thoughts for yet additional families who lost a member of their own.
Here is a screenshot of Mohamad Chatah’s latest tweets.
Before the blast, a group of innocent young teenagers happened to be there, enjoying themselves as depicted by the selfie they took. Soon after that, as said by Omar Bekdash to LBCI, Mohammad El Chaar asked for a picture… and the explosion took off.
All the teenagers, Mohammad El Chaar, Omar Bekdash, Rabih Youssef and Ahmad Moghrabi have been wounded; only Mohammad’s situation was critical and is now stable according to his close friends.
It could have been anyone. Aggressive dynamics continue to ruin peoples’ lives.
Prayers to Mohammad El Chaar, a 16 year old Lebanese young man whose one of the hobbies is swimming competitively. Prayers to his family and his friends who have to go through this unspeakable tragedy. Mohammad, we are all waiting for you. #PrayForMohammadChaar
Prayers to all those wounded severely and hanging on to life.
Why do “messages” have to be sealed with blood like this? When is this going to end?
Update: Mohammad is no longer of this world. We did not deserve him in this heartless, brutal, aggressive, fucked up world.

…THINK OF HIS MOTHER AND HIS SIBLINGS AS WELL…
