The "Let's Kill Tourism" Demonstration
Pictures Special for Beirut Notes (N)
Views from Byblos, Roman baths in Beirut and inside an 18th Century Greek Orthodox Church and a Mosque in Beirut.
The number of tourists visiting Lebanon has increased 18 percent so far this year as compared to 2004 which was a record year.
And Syria and Iran's allies and the power-crazed-Hafez-Assad-Saddam-Hussein-wannabe ex-general and permanent nut, Michel Aoun are taking their frustrations to the streets.
Lebanon becoming a democratic country with borders, a vibrant economy and an open society, where Islam and Christianity live in harmony is not their plan.
The spiteful hordes of Iran, Syria and Christian Aounistan are determined to ruin the chance that regional circumstances gave us to build a nation and an economy.
Byblos, the roman baths, our ancient churches and mosques, our rich history and the summer season mean nothing to those who care about loftier causes than the prosperity of Lebanon.
They have great causes indeed. The well being of the Assad family, the Iranian nuclear bomb and last but not least transferring the Presidency from a suntanned egocentric general with a lisp to a paranoid self obsessed nut of a general with an eye twitch.
Great plans indeed. Let us all join the Let's Kill Tourism and Prosperity demonstration tomorrow.
