Sites from Beirut




I took this picture in Beirut. I read what's written on that wall and it reminded me of Saudi literature.. something a saudi would write about israel, not a libanese! (notice the two words: shr which means evil and 7aram which means punishable by God, those two words are allways present in saudi conversations about Israel) .. i bet the person who wrote it was born and raised in saudi..

    i know that wall ... and i think you might be quite off-target in your assertion. the amal guys are shi'a lebanese & thus most likely not been born & raised in the magic kingdom.

    but the wahhabist lingo has become ubiquitous since about the 70s, when the saudi gov't started sponsoring "islamic" schools and "islamic" literature abroad.

    so now even people who'd kill a wahhabi on sight are caught in a wahhabi-influenced discourse.

    so there ...

    Eve: it is a political statement by Musa Sadr who founded Amal. Its resonance, rather than content, is what the poster is advocating. Not all things that look the same are in fact equal.
