What Lebanese newspapers will not say. The Lebanese jurist, Edmond Na`im, who just died is really known for two things. 1) he was politically a chameleon: he started as a secular socialist, and ended his career a sectarian Christian supporter of the Lebanese Forces; 2) he was known for his ability to give any legal opinion that you want (for a fee), and was willing to give its opposite, for a fee too. Oh, and he had a great personal library.
