US ambassador in Lebanon makes a speech in praise of the most hated and most mocked man in Lebanon these days

I always tell youth in the Arab world that there is no life to any Arab youth movement that avoids foreign policy. There is no domestic policy in our lands: it is all intertwined with foreign policy.  Nickel Shammas (the head of the merchants society of Beirut) has been mercilessly mocked for his anti-poor and anti-communist diatribe last week and he is loved by the US ambassador in Lebanon who gave this speech in his praise.
