According to Annahar, Ministers Nohad el Machnouk and Rachid Derbas were late for the first picture and by the time they arrived, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri had left, so they decided to take another picture with all the ministers and someone filling in Berri’s place then photoshop Berri into it.
I have to say I didn’t expect a new government to see the light, and I am quite saddened that we couldn’t break Belgium’s word record of 589 days without a government. That would have been quite the achievement!
Here are few good reads on the new government for those interested:
Lebanon’s New Government (Feb 15, 2014) – Qifa Nabki
A Team Of Rivals – BeirutSpring
Eleven Months Later – Who Won? – Moulahazat
Taken from @Boutros_Harb
Technically speaking, Boutros Harb wasn’t Telecom Minister yet when he, or whomever manages his twitter account, posted these tweets but I am surprised the tweets weren’t deleted up until this hour. I am not even sure how they managed to tweet such a thing.
Update: Tweets were deleted.
I like though that it’s called 3al Sari3 and it’s located on Ghazal Street.
I am surprised the guy actually went to Jounieh after seeing the paper. I would have stayed home and ignored it. More importantly, some guys would have appreciated the gift not considered it a “Dareb”.
Lol on Olga Balakhof!
Riachi also stripped for Jackie
Lebanese Alpine Skiers Chirine Njeim and Jacky Chamoun
It looks like Jacky Chamoun’s controversy is not over yet as Caretaker Youth and Sports Minister Faisal Karami wants to launch an investigation into her case in order to, wait for it, “protect Lebanon’s reputation”.
Can you imagine what other countries are saying about us now after seeing one of our athletes pose topless for a ski-theme calendar?? Can you imagine the reaction of Germans, French and the Americans when they know about this scandal? Can you imagine how embarrassed the Russians and the Head of Olympic Committee (Read that it’s hilarous) would be by this discovery and the impact it will have on the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics?
This whole thing is beyond ridiculous from the start and asking for an investigation made things even worse. If you want to investigate anything Mr. Karami, check the following documentaries of your hometown Tripoli      that were prepared by Vice and see how you can help your own people, because I assure you, the weekly bombs and daily clashes are what’s ruining Lebanon’s reputation, not Jackie’s boobs.
