When Hummus Hit the Fan. I shall make this a regular feature as was suggested by some readers. Yesterday, former Hariri minister, and current Hariri MP, Samir Al-Jisr, was supposed to give a talk at the Lebanese University complex in Al-Hadath. Upon arriving, supporters of Hariri and supporters of Amal exchanged insults and counter-cheers, and it quickly escalated and members of the two sides engaged in physical fights. There were injuries, and Al-Jisr had to flee for his life. Before fleeing, he asserted that Hasan Nasrallah really liked Rafiq Hariri.
