There is something that SOME Lebanese can--or should--agree on. Why can't those secular anti-sectarian Lebanese come together to form a movement calling for the full secularization of the Lebanese state AND society? Why can't we make civil marriage yet again a priority among priorities, and away from demagogues like Ilyas Hrawi? Why can't secular Lebanese regard secularization as the top political priority? Why can't we decommission the demagogic clerics of ALL sects in Lebanon? That is the only hope of Lebanon. And as long as secularism is not on the agenda of reform, I have no hope for Lebanon.
