Genetic Superiority of the Lebanese people Update. As you know, I monitor LBC-TV and An-Nahar newspaper (the first is the TV station of the Lebanese Forces militia, while the second is the right-wing, sectarian Christian, anti-Syrian (people), anti-Palestinian (people) newspaper) because they keep up with international evidence of the genetic superiority of the Lebanese people. An-Nahar specializes, for example, in regular features about those gifted Lebanese who seem to almost monthly "invent" cures for cancer. Here, there is an item about Dr. Rock Mhanna (don't tell me you have not heard of him?) who won (unanimously no less) the prize of The Best Researcher in the Strategy of Business Administration and Economics in the Middle East at the "international conference" that was held in the Malaysian island of Panang. If this will not impress you, nothing will.
PS Thanks to one reader, we know more about Dr. Mhanna. Apparently he is "Professor of Strategy and International Business at major universities in the U.S. and Lebanon."
And my favorite part is this: "Occasionally, he writes the Economic Column in major newspapers." Occasionally? Does that mean that whenever he feels like it?
