"Whenever I get mixed with the esttemed citizens known as Lebanese, for more than 10 years, I become convinced that most of them are liars. Liars who brag that they are the best people ever brought out to people." This was written by right-wing sectarian columnist, George Nasif in his Kitab Al-Jurh (Dar An-Nahar, 2005), p. 81. The problem with it is that Nasif himself proves that he is a liar too. In a column he wrote on June 19th, 2003, he blamed Israel and its agents for the bombing of Future-TV in Beirut. But as of late, Nasif has been accusing Syrian intelligence of responsibility. Which is which, Mr. Nasif?
