Dear Ed,
 
I assumed your email to me yesterday was personnel, and I responded to you personally.
However, you choose to publish your letter and failed to publish the respond, which you left me with no choice other than publish mine.

 As a Lebanese American activist in this great nation, I canít support this type of attacks and tactic in rallying our grass roots in the US, simply we canít afford more division in our communities.
 
My Answer):
Kanaan and Mukhaiber do not represent "our" community so that division can take place. Our US position is clear: HIzbollah is a Terrorist organization
 

 You Wrote You are a part of the Cedar revolution so is Mr. Kanaan and Mr. Moukhaiber.

 

My Answer):
They aren't. They are a part of a Group which is ally to a Terrorist organization which has assassinated many leaders of the Cedars Revolution.
 

 You Wrote:  The US department of states supported by Baker Hamilton report is having direct and indirect dialog with states that are sponsoring terrorist Iran and Syria.

 

My Answer):
The Baker Hamilton Report was established by a Committee not by the State Department. The President chooses what he wants to follow. The President and the State Department still consider Hizbollah as Terrorist. And we -and you- as US citizens must follow.
 

 You Wrote:  The purpose of this sincere response is to tell you enough division in our communities and lets us build a true lobby not an occasional open letter.  I assure you that these letters will not make any effects at all.

 

My Answer):
Dear ED, we appreciate your opinion and respect your activity. But we have a national security agenda to follow. If you support it that is fine. If not, we are in disagreement on these issues.
 

You Wrote: We do not support this type of attacks on your fellow Christian Lebanese and we also do not support the terrorist group Hizballah and Amal.

 

My Answer):
These aren't attacks against "fellow Christian Lebanese," nor these slogans work with us. They are politicians (who happen to be Lebanese Christians) and who chose to be the allies with Hizbollah. Exactly as did Mr Elie Hobeika by chosing to be the ally of the Syrian occupation. Being born a Lebanese Christian doesn't shield them from being criticized if they ally themselves with Terrorists.
 

 You Wrote: The US Department of states issued an entry visa to Mr. Moukhaiber and Kanaan for a certain reasons only: they are democratically elected PM and they arenít terrorist like Nabih Berri and Ali Amar.

 

My Answer):
The US Department issues visas to persons as long as they do not brake American and international laws. We are asking the US State Department to revoke these visas and all visas by individuals who ally themselves with the Terrorists.
 

You Wrote:  I hope you get my sincere message and keep up the good work only! 

 

My Answer):
 
Thank you very much for your message and we hope you'd continue your work for the Lebanese community.
