I think she deserves the win as she was the most beautiful among all contestants. However, she doesn’t look like Georgina Rizk like some people are suggesting online. Sally will represent Lebanon at the Miss World 2014 contest in London on December 14th and at Miss Universe contest in Doral on January 25th.

Before Sally was announced a winner, Miss Lebanon 2013 Karen Ghrawi slipped and fell on stage but she wasn’t hurt in the process.

Here’s what the new Miss Lebanon had to say about her projects and the importance of social media after she won, which is pretty much the same cliché we hear every year. Speaking of social media, LBCI should consider adding the contestants’ social media accounts somewhere because they are always impossible to find.

I don’t really blame them. I doubt that anyone is understanding what’s happening around us. It feels like everyone’s gone mad. Maybe the only way out is to give everyone in the Middle East their own country based on the 317,000,000-state solution proposed by [The Onion].

It’s a fun read nevertheless. Check it out [Here].

DiminBeirut: Premier League Clubs as Lebanese Religious Sects

Here’s a funny post on how Premier League Clubs can be seen as Lebanese Religious Sects. Manchester United are compared to Sunnis, Liverpool to Christian Maronites, Arsenal to Druzes, Christian Orthodox to Everton, Shiites to Chelsea etc ..

Check out the full article [Here].

Sunnis- Manchester United
Always present with big, huge numbers of followers. But only really dominated the local scene since the early 90s. Blamed by many for having corrupted the local arena, credited by others for having revolutionized the modern game. Have had the most wealth for the last 2 decades, but events since 2005 have weakened the purse strings. Currently rumored to be in debt. Current owner considered to be risking his life if he ever comes back to Old Trafford. Have looked nervously at their noisy neighbors for a few years now who have recently surpassed them. February is seen as a very dark month in their history, due to a tragedy which is remembered annually.

Druzes- Arsenal
While having a rich history themselves, never reached the heights or numbers of Sunnis or Christians- certainly not abroad. Despite this, they’ve always been relevant and decisive on the local scene. Led by a cult like figure whose capacity to keep his club relevant despite their lack of numbers is admired by many. Haven’t had real success for a while.
