sectarian baby

Lebanon is grotesque as a country, if you think about the depth of sectarianism.  Yesterday, a TV station in Lebanon reported that an abandoned baby was found on the street.  But what are the details: someone left a five-days old baby but he/she did not leave on the street: they actually left him near the Greek Orthodox cemetery.  They are sending a clear message that while they have abandoned their child, they still care enough to make sure that no Muslim or Maronite parents or people get close to that child.
