Peace in Lebanon

For peace to come, everyone must be able to create the life that he or she desires, and everyone must be able to have a voice in how they are governed, and the final thing is that every individual must be able to use his or her talents and gifts to create the life that he or she desires, but past traumas oftentimes prevent these from happening.

A nation is similar to an individual in that when past traumas accumulate, they leave the individual or the country with a sense of helplessness or hopelessness. This is what I will address in this proposal to the government of Lebanon. You could say that once these past traumas are healed, then the individual or the nation has an opportunity to overcome the sense of helplessness and hopelessness, and to go forward and to prosper. The past experiences can be used as tools. They can be used as learning experiences in order to make this happen, rather than being a victim of past experiences, and to then go forward.

At the present time, the country of Lebanon has been controlled by the Syria, but no country has the right to tell another country or another culture what to do. What we will do to begin this healing process is to start to separate out the various factions and to look at each to see how they can function better. The country of Lebanon has been the "victim" of the events from the past, but now it is time for this to be healed, by taking apart these various factions and looking at them and seeing how to step forward and to create this from this present set of circumstances. Before you can comprehend how to make changes, you must first know where you are, where you are going, and the steps to get there.

At the present time, these various factions and this "split-government control" leaves the country of Lebanon in a very precarious situation. Syria has attempted to come in to take control, but not necessarily respect the unique culture that Lebanon is. So in order to allow these political changes to come about, we will address this relationship between Lebanon and Syria.

Bashar Assad is aware that he must be like a father figure to Lebanon, and from his perspective he understands that there is a connection between the two countries. There is, you could say, a three-way separation — or split — here, because you have the government of Syria and the government of Lebanon, who are both in control of their own capacities, but yet this the third faction of the terrorist organizations within the country of Lebanon, which leaves this a three-way split. You could say that for peace to come, there has to be some sort of an agreement where everyone comes out ahead.

The terrorist organizations, such as Hezbolleh, would like to create their own life. They would like to be independent and create their own existence, but they are dependent on the government for this to happen. It is like, you could say, a grown-up child that has grown in age but not necessarily in maturity. The rebel factions — the organized terrorist factions, such as Hezbolleh — are under the control of their own leadership, but are not mature enough to maintain normal political responsibility. They have a will but not a capacity, so to speak, to provide their own leadership as a governing body.

If you have a child — and I will draw a parallel here — if a parent has an adult child who has had severe medical problems, for example, or is mentally ill, or traumatized and is very angry and unable to create his or her own separate existence... say that he has been in trouble with the law and hasn't been able to draw together his own resources, this is a similar situation.

Lebanon has this crisis situation where a major faction is in this predicament, and this comes from the fact that the past experiences on a cultural basis have created a sense of chaos and disharmony in this relationship and these people. It is as if they have been raped or traumatized or victimized by this war situation, and it has become a traditional, learned experience. The fighting has gone on for generations, and so they are not capable of creating peace anymore. They have never learned how. There are many countries in the world at the present time with child soldiers, for example, who are entering this same predicament, that there hasn't been peace for so long that nobody remembers what peace is like any more.

What we recommend is, first of all, that a dialogue be opened to allow this sense of creating a stable structure to push off from, an idea of what they would like to create. Everyone wants peace, but it is not necessarily that everyone knows how to bring it about, and so first of all, this dialogue needs to be created to find out what everyone would like to create — where everyone would like to be once they take the steps into the future. Everyone has to be able to create the life that he or she chooses for peace to come, on a national basis and an international basis and an individual basis. This is what this concept is.

Terrorism is not due to the fact that some people are good and some people are bad, as some people believe, and that the bad people are attempting to terrorize the good people. On the contrary, it comes because individuals feel very strongly about something and they are not allowed a voice. So this organization believes, and we are attempting to create an opportunity for all people to have a say in how they are governed. Oftentimes, between individuals and their governments, there is a wall created that is impossible to break down, or appears impossible to break down.

From the perspective of the Lebanese government, the idea of having to create an international presence is very difficult when you are being drained by these terrorist factions. It is like being between the proverbial "rock and a hard place." You must maintain a presence in the international community, but there is the financial and legal, and you could say social aspects, about how this appears on an international level, to have factions that are rebellious and out of control.

From this perspective, to begin discourse with the rebel factions, you could say, is the first step, but the second step must be to create an international awareness of this problem. For example, on an international basis, the idea of land mines and the traumas that these cause when individuals or vehicles are impacted by the explosions, and how people lose their legs or vehicles explode, killing their inhabitants. During wars the mines are implanted to prevent an invasion, but long after the war is over the mines still cause chaos in the communities. Many people are maimed and killed. As people, such as Princess Diana, have taken this dilemma to the attention of the international community, then something can be done about this.

The U.S. government at this time is attempting to create a fight against terrorist actions, believing that some people are good and some people are bad, but in a way, they are creating more problems by preventing the communication between all people. It is as if the war on terrorism is putting up greater walls. So the second thing that I recommend you do is to establish a definition of what terrorism actually is, and look at it from all the levels — sociological and financial, and in terms of medical problems, and as many ways as possible — and then bring this to the attention of the world as if you are looking for collaborators in the fight against the causes of terrorism and the source of terrorism, rather than making it a sense of "black and white," where individuals who are deemed terrorists are persecuted and prosecuted through war crimes tribunals or military actions.

Syria is in an interesting predicament, also, because it is aware that for Syria to move forward with an international presence, its friends and allies and its compatriots in the war on terrorism must create an international presence, also. For an economic presence, and a sense of respect to be established in Syria, and to prove its intent, it must assist its allies to help them create this international presence. Of all the factions and the various governments in the Middle East, Syria is the one country and the one government that has the best understanding of now to create peace, but yet it is coming from a position of lack because this government feels that is must still create a presence. This government sees itself as being capable of doing so, but yet these other governments are in some way holding it back.

I will address the government of Syria at another time, but until the Syrian Arab Republic considers itself to be autonomous and separate and unique from its surrounding countries, and not dependent upon them to make a presence, then this country will not be able to move forward. To draw a comparison, it would be like a grandparent who must make a presence in business or in industry while its child and grandchild are struggling, so it feels the responsibility to bring about some sort of a change, but until it allows the child and the grandchild, which in this case are Lebanon and the terrorist factions of Hezbolleh, then no one will go forward. There is a sense of coming from a position of lack, or not being able to attain this.

The final thing I would like to address before I end this and go on to another proposal of this plan for world peace, and address another country that is struggling to create its autonomy — the country of North Korea — I would like to address one final concept. The parallels that I used in this proposal are poignant due to the fact that in many countries at this time there is terrorist activity, and that when the country of Lebanon is able to see and establish this concept that everyone has the right to create the life that he or she desires, and everyone has the right to have a voice in government, and everyone is treated fairly and equally, then this will open the door for the other countries, such as the Philippines and Iraq and the countries that are being attacked and undermined by the al Qaeda organization and other terrorist factions. Terrorism will begin to fade away, and these countries will begin to integrate these people who have caused so many problems. You could say that the terrorist organizations will be able to grow up and become mature adults, again. They will be able to overcome these past traumatic events, these wars, and learn to live in peace.
