Jumblat's Propagandist in Lebanon. Robert Fisk is a more entertaining version of Thomas Friedman, but with a bigger weakness for people with wealth and power: "The food, as always, was impeccable. And why should those who face death by explosives or gunfire every day not eat well? Not for nothing has Nora Jumblatt been called the world's best hostess. I sat close to the Jumblatts while their guests...My driver Abed was blithely permitted to park only 100 metres from Jumblatt's house without a single policeman checking the boot of his car."
