Yes, and Mexican, Columbian and Peruvian drug lords, have also built roads, schools, hospitals etc. Not too many people make billions without getting their hands dirty.

The Lebanese have cannonized Hariri!
In principle, I agree. These days it’s hard to make billions without actually doing some illegal stuff. But this happened during the Gulf States oil boom, where a lot of people made enormous amounts of money.
Until now, there hasn’t been any accusation to imply that Hariri was involved in illegal actions (or weapon and drug smuggling as you call it). So what happened to innocent until proven guilty? Aren’t you supposed to be a lawyer as I recall!!!
Frankly I don’t care how he made his fortune. I’m just glad to see how he used his fortune and international connections to rebuild his country that he loved and died for, as well as helped its citizens.

"Horriye / Syede W Este'lel" means Liberty, Sovereignty and Independence.

This is the moto of Michael Aoun. And now it's the moto of all Lebanese.

Don't confuse it with Iran or the typical US thinking that 'because it is middle east all women wear the Burka'.Thats in reply to the statement"nice to see men and women ..."DUH!.
"[}:)]
I was comparing Lebanon favourably to some other Middle East countries where the women are never seen in a public crowd mixing with the men. It was nice to see a positive image of the Middle East for a change.

Where did it say in my post that I think all Middle Eastern women wear the Burka?

Read the post properly before replying with your little pills of poison.

RE: MY PRIME MINISTER ASSASINATED

My question, and if it starts some flames so be it, is what kind of country will Lebenon be if it gains it's independance?

I'll make a couple of assumptions and say it will be predominatly secular and not one of those backwards, 18th century, stone your wife for looking at your brother kind of places. But how will they interact with the west? What will (or is) the economy be based on?

I'll also assume they will hate Jews, but will it be a "boy I'm not fond of Isreal" sort of benign hate or an active "drive the Zionist to the sea" sort of hate?

I guess I'm asking will they be good Arabs, or bad Arabs? (From, of course, a pro Israel, American point of view)

Yeah, like ol' Joe Kennedy, Sr the pater familia of the bros John, Robert and Ted. Joe ran drugs too. Ethanol. Got rich and in only one generation his family went from shanty Irish to one of the most loved Presidents of the USA. You just never know how things will turn out, do you?

Bot, to answer your question, Lebanon's economy, believe it or not, was always driven by tourism. Before all the chaos, it was considered a true jewel. Absolutely breathtaking. That is its only tangible asset.

Well, it has always been the case in Lebanon. We have a very diverse society. There are Muslim women who were the Burka (or Hijab) while other Muslim women were bikinis. This is also the case for Christian women, where some are more conservative than other.
They share equal civil liberties with men, even in politics.
And to be frank; the reason why we had a very successful touristic years is mainly attributed to the fact that Muslim men from all over the Middle East come to Lebanon to SEE WOMEN, and they love Lebanese women. In some of their countries, you always see women in the Hijab, and they cannot drive. Even other Arab women like to come here, because they can wear what ever they want (if their husbands allow them, which they do in many cases).

RE: MY PRIME MINISTER ASSASINATED

Aziz is right. I have alot of arab friends (some from lebanon) and they all say the same thing. Lebanon was (and to some degree still is) one of the most beautiful places in the middle east. The best part is that it's all real (anyone who has been to the UAE will know what I mean).

It's also one of the few places in the Middle east I have now visited yet[:(!]

Maybe in a few years I'll take my wife & son there.
