the apology for example?
maybe the official opinion is apologizing, but if you ask people on the street, I am sure you would find very very few people who are willing to apologize for destroying the embassies

Lebanon 'regrets' embassy attack
|Quoting Beaucaire (Reply 18):|
It has been proved that many of the arrested protesters that burned the Danish embassy in Beirut came from Syria.Of course there were Lebanese protesters as well,but it seemed a steered action from some elements that wanted things to get out of control.
Syria unfortunately plays a dirty role currently in Lebanon ( and previously..) and wants to de-stabilize the country -which seems relatively easy due to it's complex cultural and religious composition.I do wish that Lebanon quickly finds it's historic place as crossroad of cultures and good life.One can never judge a country just based on a loud,visible and violent minority.This is true for most muslim countries.Things will calm down and we have to re-build confidence and mutual trust-even if it sounds difficult today.
|Quoting Marco (Reply 21):|
It's not surprising to me that most of the protesters were Syrians and Palestinians. The Lebanese would not accept such a thing, they have been through a civil war and are sick of violence and especially Christian-Muslims violence. I think the Palestinians should be grateful to Lebanon for providing them a home under their circumstances rather than destroying the country's already fragile unity.
