I never thought I would feel that lucky to be Lebanese, specially with everything that’s been going on in this country for the past 10 years or so, but seeing what’s happening in the Arab countries around us, we should consider ourselves as being very fortunate.
We’ve always criticized fights erupting after Basketball games, or Football games where the army started shooting in the air to disperse the crowds, but we’ve never had one single casualty as a result of such events.
This being said, Over 70 were killed when Fans of Al-Masri football cub, which beat Al-Ahly 3-1, invaded the pitch and began to throw rocks, bottles and fireworks at the al-Ahly fans. Some of the deaths were the result of stab wounds, the doctors said. [Naharnet]
This is just crazy.
“…specially with everything thatâ€™s been going on in this country for the past 10 years or so…”
I think you’ve got the numbers wrong. I would say we’ve been like this since 1200BC or since the Phoenicians civilization.
just to say my point of view,
we’re not lucky we -kind of- learned from our 30 years or so of war
they were just watching us killing each other (sometimes helping us)
Just goes to show you football is a sport of mindless nitwits.
Sad thing to see…
But i don’t think this has anything to do with Football 🙂
I am very suspicious that this was planned ahead.
