Dubai and Abu Dhabi are extremely fake.. its all flashy and luxurious but soon enough it will all be in ruin!

And while you re at it define what is so liberal about Dubai, Abu Dhabi or even Christian areas in Lebanon!

Is it the buildings and luxurious lifestyle or women wearing revealing clothing or the ads eating the cities which makes them more "liberal"
It's not liberal in the western sense of the term but a woman without a veil would likely feel more comfortable walking around the malls of Dubai and Abu Dhabi than she would be in Tripoli or the south of Lebanon.

    That’s not entirely true. Western political thought has influenced Lebanon more than any other Middle Eastern country, and that’s mostly due to its large Christian population (and of course its French colonial history).

    Hezbollah fails to see this, and is trying to run Lebanon by totally disregarded its inherent Western elements.
    Yes because the sectarian/confessional system that we are following right now since the 1920s is a "western political thought". Plato would be proud.

    Have you even been to these places I wonder!

    Yes a woman might feel uncomfortable and stared at if she is wearing short shorts where you can see half her butt cheeks or her nipples can be seen through her shirt or whatever!

    I don't know about Dubai or Abu Dhabi never been there but in Tripoli I remember seeing a girl walking just like I described and all the people were looking at her even the women were looking looool its was bit fun to see but disgusting at the same time..

    But to say.. to walk without a veil would likely make woman uncomfortable in tripoli or in the south is untrue..
    never in my life I saw a problem with that! Unless you could tell us a story you experienced in those areas!

    And just imaging if men started to wear revealing clothing like showing parts of their balls :asshat: like women show half their boobs wouldn't that feel very uncomfortable ?

    Also a veiled woman can feel very uncomfortable and unwelcome walking in some Christian areas in Lebanon too..

    I am sorry to sound sectarian but the Shia backstabbed Lebanon for the second time by abandoning October 17 revolution.

    They prefer to protect and follow their corrupt religious and political leaders instead of joining the rest of the Lebanese in demanding a corrupt free state.

    Akid fi shwayit exceptions that remained in the revolution ; but the majority preferred to follow Nassrallah and Berri...

    Well you have the Shia, and then you have the Shi3aou. The latter represent the majority.

    I love this trend that if someone from 6 million people steals a car we directly decide it s the thawra's responsibility .

    But the deposits stolen by the state, all the appointments, the decisions and lack of action that got the dollar to 8,000, nobody's responsible of this and all our deputies and ministers act surprised as if no one knows how this happened🤣🤣🤣

    So if they refuse to join a so called thawra with no direction or leadership, it means it is backstabbing? Where is true freedom to choose? Am I under any obligation to protest?

    Those protesting were told to unify their ranks and present a leadership. They failed. Every protester has a unique demand. Is that worthy of becoming a thawra?
