Good dictatorship / bad dictatorship? Are the US, Saudi regimes and green movement not accountable for their criminal alliances?

Saudi and American regimes have supported with Moubarak and Ben Ali's regimes in Tunnis. Corrupt, abusive regimes that have paralyzed their countries for years, under the claim that the population is a group of extremists waiting to lash out. The corrupt leaders claimed that they were keeping these so-called anti-west extremists, which we know as college-educated middle class, under control. This is the same claim the US makes when backing the corrupt Hariri suite in Lebanon. They deny nationalism, the populist call to end corruption, the fact that Hezbollah emerged from internal racism, and that it signed a memorandum of understanding saying that it will disarm if all Lebanese had equal rights.  No, much like they did in Egypt and Tunis, they claim that the only choice is their corrupt allies or extremists. They only seem to mind dictatorships that don't bend to their will.
How then can we trust their position on Syria? The Syrian dictatorship is far from a democracy, but how can we trust that the US won't let it transition into a democracy, because they want to replace with a Banana Republic? We want a real democracy in Syria, not American posers like Moubarak, Hariri, Ben Ali and other US allies.

The British monarchy rescinded the wedding invitation to the Syrian ambassador. Great, now how about they do the same to the Saudi regime, responsible for funding murderous mercenaries sent to hopelessly try to provoke a civil war in Lebanon in 2007?

Even more contradictory is how Lebanese get vilified for having a will of their own. We make terrible colonial subjects don't we? Many from the Iranian green movement attribute guilt by association. They don't believe that small countries have a brain or political principles, they just want to know who we belong too. Haven't Iran's green movement, Saudis and Americans heard? Slavery is over, we don't belong to anyone. Don't try to tell them that though, they only want to hear if you belong to Iran or their friend the Saudi King. Oh wait, you say he's not their friend? How convenient! They can innocent themselves from the crimes of their political allies, but we are deemed guilty by affiliation. They point and scream "wicth", "pro-Iranian", because we oppose American and Saudi colonization of our countries, through their support for Banana republics? Are you calling the Egyptian revolution pro-Iranian, because they are certainly not pro-US.

We have our own Lebanese political agenda, and frankly it is grounds for us to culturally invade the entire middle east. Our agenda entails our supreme understanding of religious diversity and democracy, something the entire area needs to learn from the charter of the Lebanese patriotic party, and not from the US sabotaging the less malleable regimes, while supporting the dictatorships they approve of.

Why Isreal is not a democracy

Ilan Pappé, professor at the College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter in the UK, director of the university's European Centre for Palestine Studies, co-director of the Exeter Centre for Ethno-Political Studies, and political activist explain why Israel is not a democracy in this Mideast Monitor article. Israel has a political cast system, and just because the lower cats can vote, that does not mean they have equal rights.
He's the author of A Modern History of Palestine, and The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.

and how will a reporter add a sectarian twist on that?

A Christian-Islamic spiritual summit in Lebanon, that must be tough to report, in media that stereotypes Lebanese by religions. I guess they'll ignore it!

White power rally in Lebanon last month

In this white power rally-equivalent in March 2011, Hariri speaks to a once-dominant and racist political cast. He blatantly plagorized GMA's 1989 speech!! Except 1989 was a call for national sentiment, and he's calling for saving a sectarian system. He wants to "breath"? Is that why his supporters said "we want pure neighborhoods, made of one religion"? This is a Hariri equivalent of a white power rally, they want "pure neighborhoods too". Racist Saudi puppet....
