After reading few comments on the earlier post on Myriam’s death and listening to her parents and fiance on TV, I thought it would be convenient to give my take on that matter and try to appease those seeking revenge and taking things way out of proportions. Mustapha from the BeirutSpring has already urged Lebanese not to make wrong conclusions out of this horrific crime and I encourage other bloggers to follow the example and spread the word.
Myriam’s murder was a true shock to all of us and devastating news to her parents and close ones. No one will ever be able to make up that huge loss for her family, yet I strongly believe it is the family’s responsibility to make sure justice takes its course, and behave like the true Christian Myriam was.
Myriam was not killed because she was a Christian. She was killed by a mentally unstable individual and a criminal. He did not kill her because she was Christian and he was a Muslim or a Syrian, he killed her because he’s a psychopath. Having said that, I urge everyone to stop turning this into a religious matter, stop inciting for more violence and simply pray for Myriam to let her rest in peace and help her family get over this difficult time.
Truth be told I’ve been reading your posts on the matter for a while, and from the very beginning you didn’t display any of the dangerous reflexes we saw on TV today..
Nichen 3a sidrak man 🙂
very well said.

at last … some one talking wise !!
How do you know he’s a psychopath?
How do you know it was not premeditated? What makes you think he is mentally disturbed or a psychopath? Are you trying to lower the sectarian heat by formulating such opinions? I am all for allowing a competent court judging the matter based on the laws. Psychopaths could be the most calculating people that you meet. I can attest to that from some of my ex girlfriends’ reactions after our splits. 😛
No one said anything about turning it into a religious matter. What you saw yesterday was Myriam’s family who wants justice, they never said anything about his religion.
Myriam’s mom said that she forgives him and all they want is not seeing that same psychopath doing that again in any other girl Christian or other.
Check this video to see what the real calm Achkar family has to say:
I agree 100%
i just saw the report , the family is just asking for justice , they saying if someone is thinking to send him to syria we will close the whole country, we all know in this country no one is brought to justice if he knows someone they are just asking for their right. whose turning it into religious matter ?? her mother maybe said that ” ni7na l masi7iyeh 72ou2na day3a “or smthg like that but can u really blame her ??? she just lost her daughter . may her soul rest in peace
I said few comments and the family’s video. The Fiance wants to kill the guy even if it meant him going to prison. I think someone needs to calm him down before it fires back on him.
I cannot even understand what the mother is feeling so I am not judging her for anything. I am simply saying let’s punish him the right way.
The media filmed the fiance’s reaction on the day he found out what happened to Myriam. As such, his reaction is understandable… I’m sure anyone in his spot would initially feel the need to get revenge especially when the judicial system is not too dependable.
After that, his approach was very different. If you check the more recent reports, Joe (the fiance) is no longer seeking revenge.
We can’t deny that the fact that the region is a peaceful Christian region and the man was a Syrian National played a role in addition to his Psycho to kill the girl!
If the same man was in Dahyeh and the lady was going to the Mosque to pray things would differ at this time!
At the end, the people in Sahel alma didn’t act the way Ketermeya’s Guys did, they only warned that IF the AUTHORITIES would try to make this SYRIAN escape then they will take revenge ! why don’t you take it from this side! The Syrians are trying to let him go away so instead of accusing LBC and the people in sahel alma, you should be urging the authorities to APPLY Justice for ONCE!
If they let him escape, I will be the first to protest along with the family. I sense however that he will not escape punishment.
Protesting at that time won’t have any impact since the guy will be in Syria and protected by his Army. Many news are saying that he is a Syrian intelligence Officer and not a simple syrian working here just to make money!
The only thing done yesterday in the LBC report, was to worn that in case someone is thinking to let him escape things should not pass normally!
As for the sectarianism,Well at the end of the DAY HE IS A SYRIAN MUSLIM MAN WHO KILLED A CHRISTIAN LADY FOR SEX !
You think if the girl was muslim he wouldnt have killed her!!!!
shou khas syrian muslim?? why not say syrian only??? shou hal ta2ifiye!!! Go live in the vatican if u want to be surrounded by christians only!!!!
What is that nonsense you are talking about? Did he make sure she was Christian before killing her? Maybe he wasn’t a Muslim believer??
he don’t need to make sure she is Christian since she was going to the Church, at the end what i’m saying is a simple fact, that a Muslim Guy, from Syria, Killed a Christian Girl from Lebanon because she resisted her while he wanted to rape her. is there anything wrong in this?
yes! why dont you just say: a f****d up man killed a girl because she resisted him while wanting to rape her. Simply! why the Syrian Muslim and Christian Lebanese?? Its irrelevant!
Simply because he is syrian and because some news says that he is a Syrian Intelligence officer and that syrians are pushing to release him and that in the Syrian’s mind lebanese humans worth nothing, they consider they can kill us and then escape as if nothing happened! this is why i mentioned the “Syrian” and “Lebanese” As for the Christianity and Muslim, well this has another reason that i’m not going to tackle here since it might cause some disturbance! Have a nice evening!
I cannot believe you have ur own blog! thats sad
(this is to shou ra2yak of course and his vital “ra2eh”) Pathetic!
And I thought u were after me again 😛
ok don’t believe …. I gave my opinion and you are giving yours, where is the problem then ??
If ur opinion is useless so better to keep it to urself!!!!
If you consider my opinion useless, don’t read it and keep your head in the sand!
i totally agree….after all if we had justice in Lebanon we wouldnt be worried…but the lack in justice and the power of Syria will let easily this man runaway like so other murderers who was capable to hide just bcz of their nationality….m sure there’s a lot of good syrian people but the worse is staying between us and we have the whole right not to be afraid of them and to ask them to leave us in peace in our country!!!!!! after all this man whatever his religious and nationality he should be punished in the hardest way for what he has done for Myriam….
If just every one can imagine what she suffered b4 she died…her last minutes in painnnnnn and fearrrrr………..it’s horrible and no one has the right to say to her family and her relatives and friends to calm down….alla la yjarrrib 7adda, cz i think things would be different if a memeber of ur family was hurt instead of someone u just heard about and felt sorry for……..
7aj te7kou guys 3an el ta2ifiye ma 7ada byenza3a gher yalli bye7ki bi hal mwadi3 ana muslim w ref2ati 3/4 masi7iye binemou 3andi bel bet ma3 2ekhweti w 3ayelti ma menfakker bi mawdou3 2el diyene
I wish there was a like comment option 😀
Very wise post and correct analysis… well said totally supportive!
Choura2yak, I am glad you’re not going to tackle the subject, and I would be more glad if you don’t tackle any subject whatsoever. Even the weather discussion, don’t be part of it cuz I’m positive you’ll find a way to screw it up (who knows, maybe for you the rain in the Muslim villages is lethal). Please do us a favor, do the humanity a big big favor, and keep you precious opinion to ur precious self! That is said, it’s end of discussion. I won’t allow you to drag me that low. Ohhhh, I sent one Muslim to eat you while sleeping! Check under your bed before going to it!
i think you consider you are wise enough to protect a whole trend of hatred towards a society! you don’t want to believe it ok this is your right, you might be one of them, but at the end this hatred exists, if you agree or not!
“You might be one of them”? one of who exactly?? I really really hope you mean “psychopath” cuz anything else would be a disaster! seriously!
THIS A TOTALLY TRUE…WE LIVE IN A MODERN SOCIETY…LET THE LAW DEAL WITH IT…THIS IS A HEART BREAKING NEWS….TO MIRIAM, HER FAMILY ANF THE COUNTRY AS WELL….BUT WE HAVE TO BE WISE.. AND START DEALING WITH MATTERS BY TAKING APPROPRIATE STEPS…WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE CALM AND WISE…VIOLENCE CAN ONLY CREATE VIOLENCE AND WE HAVE TO START BELIEVE IN THE LAW AND JUSTICE..TO CREATE A BETTER FUTURE…AND FOR THE WORLD TO BE A BETTER PLACE WE SHOULD GIVE THE LAW A CHANCE TO BE APPLIED…PLEASE PEOPLE CALM DOWN THERE’S ALWAYS BETTER SOLUTIONS WITHOUT THE IMPACT OF VIOLENCE….LET US ALL WISH THAT THE LAW TAKES IT’S COURSE…AND JUSTICE WILL BE DONE…..WISDOM IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER…
