    Gebran Bassil - Head of FPM, Leader of the Strong Lebanon Bloc and Former Minister of Foreign Affairs

    فالكذبة مهما تكررت لا تصبح حقيقة Finally he said something not idiotic in his mediocre speech. If that is the best the Maronites can produce, you can't but wonder whether it's time to give up the presidency to someone who deserves it. Where do you find that someone? That is the million dollar...

    A Sunni-Shia Political Reconciliation Would Mean?

    What it would for the Christians is that instead of it being death by a thousand cuts it would be a coup de grace. I wish it would happen so this mockery of a country called Lebanon could maybe for the sake of humanity find some peace finally.

    Financially helping family members

    What you are doing shows a generosity of spirit required of each one of us in a position to lend a hand to someone in need. I’d like to share with you some thoughts which are the product of a quarter of a century of working with wretched people. Don’t take them as advice (God forbid if I am in...

    Unrest in Afghanistan - Updates and Discussions [Breaking: Kabul has fallen - Taliban rule Afghanistan]

    Let me quote you this line of almoutanabbi إذا رأيت أنياب الليث بارزة... فلا تظن أن الليث يبتسم There is some sort of a deal no doubt and as long as it's not made public we can only speculate on what the terms might be. Will the signatories to it intend to keep their words or is it like we do...

    Unrest in Afghanistan - Updates and Discussions [Breaking: Kabul has fallen - Taliban rule Afghanistan]

    Let's wait and see whether the Taliban can outdo ISIS in savagery. You have to admit ISIS set the bar a bit too high but in due time I have no doubt they'll manage. Poor Afganistan its luck is as bad as Lebanon's. The Americans did the right thing to leave. Some countries are just un savable.

    Cut him some slack please. Ma adia2 3aynak. In two week time he will will support Salame's decision. Not now right away while there is some populist points to score. Already one week has gone by so seven more days and he'll be free from his hypocrisy and back to his idiotic self. Also be...

    عون طلب استنفار الأجهزة الأمنية والصحية: لكشف ملابسات انفجار التليل Unlike the port's explosion where Lebanese politicians are involved we can be sure the investigation of this incident will conclude before Aoun ascends to heaven.

    News General Michel Aoun elected President of the Lebanese Republic

    we are yet to see one person who is under the law except some poor high school kid smoking a joint. Do these officials really believe what they say or is it the attraction of cliches?

    October 17 Revolution [Breaking: subsidies lifted - implosion next?]

    the people make only one decision and is always the wrong one. That is on election day and that is why I do not believe that they should have the right to vote. And why not? There are two reasons: Firstly in general they are as corrupt as the PM's they elect and secondly because voting is a...

    October 17 Revolution [Breaking: subsidies lifted - implosion next?]

    A wise decision by Salameh. The people lived off borrowed money for far too long. Assuming there is still gonna be an independent Lebanon, this is a step in the right direction. Fuel for Lebanon is its largest bill and this will cut consumption big time and ease the pressure a bit on the...

    October 17 Revolution [Breaking: subsidies lifted - implosion next?]

    My understanding of our mentality tells me it'll be few days of displeasure then things get back to normal. People get used to anything the government dishes out. Basita these steps are needed if the country were ever to set itself on the right path to recovery, assuming of course it will remain...

    Escalations in the south [Next Israeli-Lebanese war imminent?]

    what we see today is a country that has lived way past its use-by date and outlived its usefulness to its people and the region. A major war has the potential to wreck the country in a way that makes it imperative for world powers and the UN to intervene an put it out of its misery. In one...

    The State of the Lebanese Pound [$ drops below 14,000]

    I had friends who despite their high salaries(back then) kept putting off having maids and putting it off. I wonder how they feel today when the Maids era has ended without them enjoying what it was like to be a middle class living off borrowed money. My heart aches for them as they can barely...

    Poll Question: What should be solution out of the deadlock?

    There is no feasible way out at least for the next three decades unless one of two things happen: 1 Hizbullah gives up its arms and we all know that the ideological nature of that party is entwined with death and destruction. 2- Everyone who has ever held a public office in any govt entity in...

    The State of the Lebanese Pound [$ drops below 14,000]

    Let's not forget, Zimbabwe is a country very rich in agriculture and minerals, not to mention it's the home of one of the most beautiful natural sites in the world. It was run by an imcompetent dictator who ruined it. Before the civil war the dollar was worth around 3LL. It went up a 1000fold...

    The State of the Lebanese Pound [$ drops below 14,000]

    the question is: Is it still there? Lebanon HAD nearly 10M oz of gold. Why no one talks about it? Why doesnt an independent agency verify ts existence?
