Ghassan Shirbil, editor-in-chief, of the Saudi daily Al-Hayat, wrote this: "The Southern Lebanese is born waiting for his martyrdom. Life is a bridge hanging between two funerals. The land is treacherous and the sea is treacherous. Whenever a child is born, a bomb is born to hunt him/her down. This is our flesh minced under the rubble. This is our flesh splintering in every direction. This world is desolate. This world is savage. After 10 years, the killer came back to the scene of the crime, and slit the throat of his victim, again."
