  • Walking Gemmayze, Rue Gouraud: A Traditional Street You Have to Discover


    Walking Gemmayze: A Traditional Street You Have to Discover (walk more, live our country)

    Rue Gouraud (Arabic: شارع غورو‎) is a mixed residential and commercial street in Gemmayzeh, a neighborhood in the Rmeil district of Beirut in Lebanon. It is named after French General Henri Gouraud. Gemmayze, and Rue Gouraud specifically, and competes with the trendy village-type neighborhood of Badaro, as one of Beirut's bohemian quarters. the district is full of narrow streets and historic buildings from the French era. The neighborhood is well known today for its trendy bars and pubs, cafes, restaurants and lounges, most of which are directly located on Rue Gouraud.
    Rue Gouraud is known especially for its culinary scene that is popular with Beirut's fashionistas. The street runs east of Beirut Central District and the Saifi Village, extending from Avenue Georges Haddad and reaching the Corniche du Fleuve. In 2004, Travel + Leisure magazine called the street SoHo by the Sea, due to its colorful and chic cafés amid 1950's apartment buildings and hole-in-the-wall shops.

    Adjacent to Rue Gouraud are the Saint Nicolas Stairs, also known as Escalier de l'Art, where art festivals are held every year. The stairs lead to Rue Sursock further to the South. The area is also within walking distance from Rue Monnot and the Saifi Village.

    Rue Gouraud and the rest of Gemmayzeh were damaged extensively in the 2020 Beirut explosions, which destroyed many buildings.

  • Israel’s Mossad


    The Talmud says “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first.” This instinct to take every measure, even the most aggressive, to defend the Jewish people is hardwired into Israel’s DNA. From the very beginning of Israel’s statehood in 1948, protecting the nation from harm has been the responsibility of its intelligence community and armed services. Targeted assassinations is the one weapon in their vast arsenal that they have relied upon to thwart the most serious threats. Come hear Israel’s best investigative journalist, Ronen Bergman, as he shares stories of successful and failed targeted assassinations, on Israel’s enemies large and small. Bergman is joined by Bret Stephens, an op-ed columnist at The New York Times and former editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post.

    Until we did the research. It turned out we were a bit oblivious off the real impact of nuclear weapons in the real world, on a real city. And especially, how helpless even the most developed nations on earth would be if an attack occurred today.
    So hopefully this video demonstrates how extremely non fun a real world nuclear attack would be, without being too gruesome. This collaboration was a blast (no pun intended) and we want to say a huge thank you to the International Red Cross!

  • Beirut Now! Lebanons Capital is Back


    Forget what you think you know about Beirut. The Lebanese capital nowadays is a buzzing centre of culture, and fabulous food. Beirut now is probably not what you expect at all. Good news doesn't make it to the international news channels.

    Is Beirut safe to visit? Yes! Of course, there are some areas to avoid and one should stay clear of protests, but that's true of Paris and most major cities.

    Follow me as I spend 2 days exploring some of the sights and sounds of this famous city. Enjoy a stroll along the Corniche, take the cable car to Harissa, and browse the treasures of the Sursock Museum and the National Museum. There's falafel and ice cream along the way too.

    Filmed in April 2019

    THE BEIRUT OF NOW - From the Blog

    Another cloud of aromatic apple tobacco smoke gently drifted across my table as I debated whether to tear off another piece of flatbread and finish the enormous bowl of creamy hummus sitting in front of me. But this was not a smoky “male only” backstreet cafe. I was in an upscale shopping mall in the Verdun district and my sheesh smoking neighbours were all expensively dressed middle aged women flicking through their mobile phones and chatting excitedly in Arabic with an occasional dose of French and English. Beirut was surprising me again.

    The city became synonymous with violence during the brutal civil war that lasted from 1975 to 1990. “I just picked myself up, dusted down and thought “I’m still here”” said Fouad, describing his survival of three car bombs. Fouad, a Maronite Christian, was driving me out to Harissa, where the statue of Our Lady of Lebanon peers down from its vantage point high above the city’s noise. By his own admission he had lost all the innocent years of his youth as a result of the deadly and senseless conflict, yet his gentle eyes showed no anger. “I want people to come back to my lovely country” he said with a smile as the cable car sailed up, almost knocking plant pots from balconies.

    Earlier in the day I had questioned my own previous trepidation as I mingled with joggers and fishermen on the famous Corniche. I had wandered past modern art galleries and boutiques in what was once the perilous Green Line and now I was now relaxing on the sun-drenched courtyard cafe at the Sursock museum indulging crunchy falafel and tabbouleh. I had just stocked up on small designer gifts at the museum shop and enjoyed a snapshot of Lebanon’s vibrant contemporary art scene. All the negative preconceptions were disappearing as fast as my glass of ice-cold zesty handmade lemonade.

    However, there are concerns in Beirut that too much of the past is disappearing. The imposing Mohammed Al-Amin mosque is now surrounded by Dubai style apartments and the bells of the Maronite cathedral of St George have to compete with the sound of relentless construction. The iconic shell of the Holiday Inn will surely be counting its days. Forget the over-used epithet of “Paris of the East”, it’s the Beirut of Now that commands your attention, and quickly.

    As we waited for the cable car to whisk us down again Fouad had another twinkle in his eye. “I’m going to take you to try the best ice cream, not just in Lebanon, but in the whole world!” It looked as if this city was going to surprise me again!

  • Beirut by Drone - After the Explosion


    On August 4, 2020, two explosions occurred at the port of the city of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. The second explosion was extremely powerful, and caused at least 220 deaths, 6,000 injuries, US$10–15 billion in property damage, and left an estimated 300,000 people homeless. The event was linked to about 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate – equivalent to around 1.2 kilotons of TNT.

  • Artist draws mural in solidarity with Beirut


    (7 Aug 2020) LEAD IN:
    On Syrian rubble, an artist painted a tribute to the victims of the Beirut explosion.
    The Lebanese flag, visible from the sky over Idlib.
    Aziz Asmar, a displaced graphic artist, decided to create the mural as a gesture of solidarity with the victims of a the Beirut explosion.
    The blast Tuesday, which appeared to have been caused by an accidental fire that ignited a warehouse full of ammonium nitrate at the city's port, rippled across the Lebanese capital, killing at least 149 people, injuring more than 5,000 and causing widespread destruction.
    Today we drew this because of the massive explosion that happened at the Beirut port. We're in solidarity with the Lebanese innocent civilians who are suffering from corruption that is ingrained in the country, says Asmar.
    Idlib has been at the center for much of Syria's bloody conflict.
    The city is the last urban area still under opposition control in Syria, located in a shrinking rebel enclave in the northwestern province of the same name.
    Syria's 10-year-old civil war, has shrunk in geographical scope and is now focusing on this tiny corner of the country.
    Government airstrikes have hit it regularly since 2015, when rebels seized it from government forces.
    Over the years since, multiple waves of displaced people arrived, from other opposition areas further south retaken by the government, and recently more from other parts of Idlib.
    Asmar says Idlib residents' experience of war gives them compassion for those in Lebanon who have lost loved ones or homes to the blast.
    Syria and Lebanon share a history dating back centuries, since before modern borders were set.
    Under French mandate, the two countries once shared a currency. Economic and familial  ties have typically crossed borders.
    Now, Lebanon hosts some 1 million refugees from Syria's civil war.
    Asmar also says he wants the world to remember those killed - Lebanese, but also Syrian workers.

  • Lebanon: Beirut prepares for new lockdown as COVID cases surge


    Subscribe to our channel!

    Beirut's local businesses spoke out on Thursday ahead of a two-week nationwide lockdown set to be imposed by Lebanese authorities amid a new spike in COVID-19 cases.

    The day before new restrictions enter into force, supermarkets noted an influx of customers trying to stock up their households.

    Everyone is under stress to secure their needs for days, said a Fakhani shop employee Hani Harb, adding there is a tremendous panic among people to get their needs.

    He said the restrictions affected the opening hours, causing overcrowding of the shops and complicating the control of social distancing in the premises.

    Market vendor Mohamad Aldaka backed the new round of restrictions. If pandemic spreads like Italy, it will be catastrophic. We are geographically a small area, the Lebanese Republic, and the population is limited, then the whole people will be annihilated, he stressed.

    Lebanon will shut down for the next two weeks starting on Friday, with markets, shopping centres and other public areas being forced to close and a curfew being put in place. The country reported a record 456 new cases of coronavirus on Monday, reports say.

  • Albtraum statt Hochzeit: Explosion in Beirut unterbricht Zeremonie – Gäste in Panik


    Ein am Dienstag aufgenommenes Video zeigt eine Hochzeitszeremonie, die kurz nach Beginn von der heftigen Explosion in der libanesischen Hauptstadt Beirut unterbrochen wird. Die Hochzeitsgäste laufen schreiend hinaus. Einen Moment später ist das Gotteshaus verwüstet.

    Anfangs zeigt das Video noch lachende Menschen, die gerade dabei sind, einen der schönsten Tage im Leben zu feiern: Ihre Hochzeit. Während sich die Gäste versammeln, beginnt die Kamera zu wackeln. Wenige Augenblicke später knallt es, die Druckwelle der Explosion trifft die Feiernden völlig unvorbereitet. Der Kameramann versteckt sich. Man hört, wie Gäste panisch hinauslaufen. Als der Kameramann weiterfilmt, ist das Gotteshaus bereits leer. Die Gäste haben sich mittlerweile draußen versammelt und beruhigen die Braut.

  • Crisis and Uprising in Lebanon: The Roots of the Explosion


    A discussion examining the roots of the explosion and mass protests currently unfolding in Lebanon with speakers on the ground in Beirut.
    Please join the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) International Committee and Haymarket Books for this forum examining the momentous events currently unfolding in Lebanon, featuring three speakers on the ground in Beirut.
    Live captioning will be available for this event.
    The massive explosion that rocked Beirut on August 4 revealed the depths of the Lebanese ruling elite’s criminal mismanagement. The explosion and mass protests that followed come on the heels of a year-long economic crisis and popular revolt.
    Since October 17, 2019 the people of Lebanon have been in the streets again and again struggling to transform the country’s sectarian-oligarchic political and economic system. Now in the wake of the COVID crisis, economic collapse, and devastation caused by elite incompetence which has driven 300,000 people from their homes, the people of Lebanon are rising up again. What can we learn from Lebanon’s long uprising and how can we show solidarity?

    Part of the proceeds from this event will go toward Anti-Racism Movement Lebanon, a grassroots collective working with migrant workers in Lebanon.

    Rima Majed is a writer, activist, and Assistant Professor of Sociology at the American University of Beirut (AUB). Her research focuses on social movements, sectarianism, conflict and violence in the Middle East. She has written extensively on the political economy of sectarianism, protests and uprisings in Lebanon and Iraq, structural transformations and unemployment in postwar Lebanon, and the importance of labor organization. Her work has appeared in a range of academic journals and media outlets, including Social Forces, Mobilization, Global Dialogue, Idafat: The Arab Journal of Sociology, Al Jumhuriya, CNN, Middle East Eye, openDemocracy, and Al Jazeera English. She is currently working on a book that looks at sectarian capitalism and the shift in sectarian boundaries in Lebanon.
    Lara Bitar is a journalist in Beirut and the founding editor of The Public Source, a Beirut-based independent media organization that covers socioeconomic and environmental crises afflicting Lebanon since the onset of neoliberal governance in the 1990s and provides political commentary on events unfolding since October 17, 2019. Her media practice is founded on a deep sense of place — a geographical imperative — which centers marginalized communities and connects their struggles to broader frameworks. She contributes reports on social movements and civil unrest to grassroots media projects in the US and Lebanon and writes for regional and feminist publications. Committed to labor struggles and radicalizing the local press, Bitar is organizer of a Beirut-based media collective for independent and freelance journalists.
    Bassel Salloukh is Associate Professor of Political Science at the Lebanese American University (LAU) in Beirut. He is co-author of The Politics of Sectarianism in Postwar Lebanon (2015) and Beyond the Arab Spring: Authoritarianism and Democratization in the Arab World (2012) and co-editor of Persistent Permeability? Regionalism, Localism, and Globalization in the Middle East (2004). He is a senior fellow at the Lebanese Centre for Policy Studies (LCPS) and a member of the Arab Political Science Network’s Advisory Committee for 2019-2021. His current research interests include an intersectional critique of power-sharing arrangements in postwar states, the philosophy of reconciliation in divided societies, and Middle East International Relations after the popular uprisings.
    Shireen Akram-Boshar is a socialist activist and alum of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). She has organized around the question of the Syrian uprising and the relationship between Syrian and Palestinian struggles for liberation, as well as on anti-imperialism and solidarity with the revolts of the Middle East/North Africa region. Her writing has covered the repression of Palestine solidarity activists in the US, revolution and counterrevolution in the Middle East, Trump’s war on immigrants, and the fight against the far right. Shireen is part of the Middle East and Africa working group of DSA's International Committee.
    Haymarket Books is an independent, radical, non-profit publisher. Every dollar we take in from book sales and donations goes directly to support our project of publishing books for changing the world—a project has never been more necessary or more urgent.
    While all of our events are freely available, we ask that those who are able make a solidarity donation in support of our continuing to do this important work.

  • GIAF First Thought Talk with Marwa Al-Sabouni


    As part of Galway International Arts Festival's 2017 series of First Thought Talks, GIAF sits down with Marwa Al-Sabouni, architect and mother in the war-torn city of Homs, Syria. Watch as she discusses what it’s like to live and work in Syria and tells about what she considers the power of home. More GIAF First Thought Talks are available at

    35 year–old architect and mother of two, Marwa Al–Sabouni is the first Syrian to participate in the Galway International Arts Festival. Al-Sabouni was born in Homs and has a PhD in Islamic Architecture. Despite the destruction of large parts of her city, she has remained in Homs with her husband and children throughout the war.

    In her recent book, 'The Battle for Home', she explores the role architecture and the built environment play in whether a community crumbles or comes together, and she offers insights on how her country (and a much–needed sense of identity) should be rebuilt so that it will not happen again. Philosopher Roger Scruton, quoted in The Guardian, describes 'The Battle for Home' as “the work of a profound thinker” and “the expression of a beautiful soul who comes to us with… a message of hope.” It is available for purchase here:

    #beirut #lebanon #sebelumledakan #prayforlebanon

    Before the two big explosions that ravaged the city, Beirut was a beautiful city with all its architectural splendor. In its 7000 years of history, this city has been destroyed and rebuilt so many times but always keeps its special middle eastern beauty. Beirut has been always the city that broke the stereotypes of Middle East. There are no deserts and women are free as they are in the West. It is a combination of modern and traditional, new and old, European and Arabic culture, sea and mountains. And one of the best cities for food in the world. Beirut is a thriving hotspot for shopping, socializing and sightseeing. Despite the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990), the city has been rebuilt several times and redeveloped with the modern architecture of shopping malls, clubs, luxury high-rise apartment and large-scale art museums like the upcoming Beirut Museum of Art. It’s truly the “Paris of the Middle East”.

    Sebelum dua ledakan besar yang menghancurkan kota itu, Beirut adalah kota yang indah dengan segala kemegahan arsitekturnya. Dalam 7000 tahun sejarahnya, kota ini telah berkali-kali dihancurkan dan dibangun kembali tetapi selalu menjaga keindahan timur tengahnya yang istimewa. Beirut selalu menjadi kota yang mematahkan stereotip Timur Tengah. Tidak ada gurun dan wanita bebas seperti di Barat. Ini adalah kombinasi dari budaya modern dan tradisional, baru dan lama, Eropa dan Arab, laut dan pegunungan. Dan salah satu kota terbaik untuk makanan di dunia. Beirut adalah hotspot yang berkembang pesat untuk berbelanja, bersosialisasi, dan jalan-jalan. Terlepas dari perang saudara Lebanon (1975-1990), kota ini telah dibangun kembali beberapa kali dan dibangun kembali dengan arsitektur modern pusat perbelanjaan, klub, apartemen mewah bertingkat tinggi, dan museum seni skala besar seperti Museum Seni Beirut yang akan datang. Ini benar-benar “Paris di Timur Tengah”.
