Unfortunately, in a country like Lebanon, where sectarian tensions are always simmering beneath the surface, when certain parties form "online militias" who use social media as a weapon to fire volleys of digital garbage at their rivals, the results can only further inflame the situation and ultimately prove deadly to the county as a whole.Certainly, such online attacks also occur in other countries, but with the sectarian element that is part and parcel of life in Lebanon, the only possible outcome of the hostile campaigns carried out by these digital hordes in this country is to feed extremism as well as cause devastation, anguish and a return to the dark ages.
