Another evidence of the genius of the Lebanonese "civilization". I am translating this item verbatim from the new issue of the Lebanese weekly, Al-Afkar: "On the morning of Wednesday, the Member of Parliament from Diniyyah, Qasim `Abdul-`Aziz, visited the Saudi Ambassador in Lebanon, Mr. `Abdul-`Aziz Al-Khujah, accompanied by a farmer/artist from Bakh`un, named Jalal Jbarah, who has able to print the picture of King `Abdullah bin `Abdul-`Aziz on an apple, while it was small on the bush. The apple grew, and the picture grew with it. The Ambassador accepted a basket of the apples with the picture of the Guardian of the Two Holy Sites, with a letter of love and appreciation from the people Diniyyah to Saudi Arabia, which holds in its lap Lebanese people, including people from Diniyyah."
