Gebran Tueni

Born in Beirut on September 15, 1957, Gebran Tueni is the scion of a distinguished family that left its mark in politics, journalism and writing. His father was veteran diplomat, politician and journalist Ghassan Tueni, and his mother was the famous poet and writer, Nadia Hamadeh.

Since his early childhood, Gebran Tueni loved his country. At a young age, he started to struggle against the Palestinian, Israeli and Syrian occupiers and all foreign presence in his homeland. He organized and participated in student demonstrations demanding sovereignty, freedom and independence. He devoted his pen and newspaper to achieve this dream. His voice still reverberates in the Martyrs' Square where he declared his famous oath that was repeated by more than one million Lebanese people on that historic day, March 14, 2005. His courage and belief in human rights established him as a distinguished and rebel MP; he was the first one to raise the issue of detainees in Syrian jails and to advocate for their cause. His courage and faith in God and Lebanon were the weapons with which he faced his enemy. However the criminals were lurking all around, and on the morning of December 12, 2005, they silenced "the resonating voice" with a car bomb in Mkalles... Gebran died a martyr on the homeland's altar as he has always dreamt.

دفع ثمن إيمانه بالحرية والديموقراطية

21 December 2005
الى الأستاذ غسان توينيفي هذه الظروف الصعبة، تعجز الكلمات عن التعبير عن مدى بشاعة الجريمة التي راح ضحيتها ابنك شهيد الكلمة الحرة جبران، الصحافي والنائب الذي دفع بحياته ثمن ايمانه بالحرية والديموقراطية.ان ايدي الغدر الآثمة التي لا تعرف الا لغة القتل، تخاف من ذوي الاصوات المدوية والكلمة الحرة، ولا تعرف سبيلا لاسكاتها سوى الطرق الدموية التي تحاول من خلالها طمس لبنان والامة في ظلمات القهر الفكري، والتعسف والاستبداد.اقدم التعازي الحارة اليك والى عائلة الشهيد والى صحيفة "النهار" باسمي وباسم زوجي شربل القطار. ان جبران تويني لم يمت، فهو حاضر بأفكاره وسيرته.ان دعاءنا ومشاعرنا ترافقكم في هذه المحنة العصيبة، ونسأل الله ان يمدكم بالقوة والصبر.رزان ميشال عفلق
