Why everyone who is unfairly and unexpectedly killed in Lebanon becomes a martyr? I think It’s a Middle East-wide problem, but let’s talk about Lebanon for now. Martyr for me is someone who got killed, with a personal readiness to die, for his country or a legitimate national cause.
In Lebanon, people get killed in car accidents, family disputes, normal crimes, street conflicts and of course in sectarian fightings. We use the term loosely to the extent that all the killed individuals can be called “martyrs”.
