DiminBeirut: Premier League Clubs as Lebanese Religious Sects

Posted By :

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.

Gebran Bassil And The Caroline Video: Scandals bi Samné w Scandals bi Zeit

I disapprove of what Gebran Bassil did in this video, and how our Minister of Education laughed at the joke, but it’s quite ironic how some Lebanese made a big deal out of this incident while disregarding the real scandals around them. Any scandal related to gender equality or women respect should be highlighted regardless of the political affiliation of the person behind it. There are still many Lebanese MPs and ministers who refuse to sign laws to protect women from violence and abuse yet barely anyone mentions them.

Moreover, I laughed at the [MTV]‘s attempt at bashing Bassil by mentioning Camille Chamoun and others who held the post before him. As much as I love and admire President Chamoun, he once gave the finger to a foreign diplomat or president if I am not mistaken and got away with it. Even Pierre Sadek mentioned this habit of his in a caricature.

In all cases, Caroline Ziadeh, who happens to be the UN Deputy Permanent Representative of Lebanon, should be the one requesting an apology from the minister as he disrespected her.

Best Pictures From Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney’s Wedding In Venice

I loved the title BusinessWomenMedia chose for this occasion which was “Internationally acclaimed barrister Amal Alamuddin marries an actor”. Of course Georges Clooney is not just any actor. He’s one of the best actors in the world and has received five Golden Globe Awards as an actor and producer, but the truth is we wouldn’t have heard about Amal in Lebanon if it wasn’t for Clooney.

If anyone knows where their wedding list is, please let me know la na3mil wejbetna :D
