I will be on NBN's Al-Malaf on Thursday evening (Beirut time). Much more to say, but there is alas little time. Anti-royal graffiti are appearing on Amman's streets, but erased by the secret police before dawn. Two main streets have been renamed after King and his wife--both are quite increasingly unpopular. An-Nahar reported that two streets vendors in Beirut tried to jump off the Rawshah cliff yesterday after being physically and verbally abused by Lebanese police. There are pictures: no time to link. Leave me alone. The homeland (and Lady Bishwat statue) is calling. And then Manar sent me this evidence of Lebanese genius.
