Lebanon: the shallow homeland

There was jubilation in Lebanon today. The country has been for a few years on the verge of civil war, Israel has been destroying the country for decades, the Hariri economy has produced a massive debt of $50 billion, the Palestinians in Lebanon are mistreated and the foreign maids are held as slaves but...Jeita Grotto was selected in some finalist selection for some dubios honor on some dumb internet poll. I kid you not. What a country. One of the popes was right when he said: Lebanon is more than a homeland. It is: it is a joke. So please, make sure you vote for any country except Lebanon (or Israel). Shame on As-Safir for putting the silly news on the front page today.
