«All of a sudden Lebanese eden broke down - several bullets and shells were enough. In a few month after my short imprisonment - and after almost thirteen centuries of unique ethnic coexistence - there started a fierce civil war between the Christians and the Muslims soon joined by the Palestinian refugees. It was a mayhem, even more bloodcurdling as it occurred in the downtown area, immediately in the residential district (my school was in some hundreds feet from the theater of war). The conflict lasted for more than one and a half decades. I shall not describe it in detail. Perhaps, it is the advent of fire-arms and other powerful warefare tools that has made that what would only be a couple of browls in the epoch of swords into a spiral of an uncontrolled armed "measure for measure".
