 Hi Comrades:

 I think the post of sevaq is a terrific marxist analyzation, he gave us
the suitable examples that shows up how do sect in lebanon where divided
as a social classes and that what cause the left in the beginning of the
war 1975 to put a theory called [ the sect as asocial class]"i wish i
translated correctly" although they discovered lately that the decission
mostly are taken from the elite and that what sevaq wrote{the elite or
that one specific socioeconomic traditional class which does
not know the limits or the boundaries of sectarianism is still surviving
and
behind the scenes is the decision maker}and this elite which most of it
is formed from sunnite and maronite and some of the shiite which Ziad
Rahbani{ son of Fairoz, and he is a marxist} called them morinist
shiite, but those elite don't work for the sake of their sects benefits
but for the sake of their personal benefit so by that you may see a
maronite, a suunite,and a shiite are united while their is a war between
their sects;moreover they can also take a decision that this war must
continue.{ that what caused Ziad rahbani to say while he is describing
secularism, take the merchant as an example.

           With revolutionary greetings!
