A friend recently brought this BBC report on the recent Lebanese protests to my attention. At face-value, it's just another report covering the same ground that has been covered by numerous other publications. What really struck my fancy is this section:
- "...And in one unforgettable scene an elderly lady, her hair all done up, was demonstrating alongside her Sri Lankan domestic helper, telling her to wave the flag and teaching her the Arabic words of the slogans...."
This is freedom fighting, Lebanese style!
I just love my Lebanon :)
