Deleting the phrase “revolution is born from the womb of sorrows” from the Lebanese Army’s celebration sparked a wave of anger



The deletion of the phrase “The revolution is born from the womb of sorrows” from a song during a ceremony held on the occasion of the Lebanese Army Day sparked a wave of anger, at a time when popular protests are continuing in a country awash with crises.

The “Lebanese and Proud” Association organized a party entitled “Karmalik Ya Watan” in the Nahr al-Kalb area north of Beirut, on Saturday, under the auspices of the army commander General Joseph Aoun, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the army, according to the official Lebanese News Agency.

A video clip from the ceremony spread to a choir singing the song “Ya Beirut” by the Lebanese artist Magda Al-Roumi, whose lyrics were written by the great poet Nizar Qabbani. Revolution, no, no, no, no, no. “

This hybrid replacement has sparked angry criticism from Lebanese activists and commentators on social media, and the hashtag “#The_ revolution _ was born out of uterus-sorrows” in Lebanon has released thousands of comments.

On Saturday, Lebanese President Michel Aoun received the Commander of the Army and a delegation of military leaders. Aoun said in a speech to the army forces that “Lebanon is fighting today one of the fiercest wars, against more than one enemy, including rampant corruption and those who manipulate the livelihood of citizens and strike the national currency, and those who launch rumors to spread despair,” according to what the Lebanese presidency website reported.
