Yasser Arafat and Barometre
"Barometre, a small bar near the gate of the American University of Beirut, is known for its delicious mezze, and was also a favorite of Yasser Arafat." 1) I can't stand Yasser Arafat but throughout his years in Beirut, he never ever went to a bar or a restaurant or a cafe. Never. 2) Barometre opened after Arafat had left Beirut in 1982.
