Pictures and Video: Guns N’ Roses in Lebanon

guns-n-roses-beirut-364

Check out tons of pictures from the Guns N’ Roses concert in Lebanon [Here] and a video uploaded by Francois on his blog below. There are other videos that will follow but the internet connection doesn’t allow more than one video per day. I still haven’t uploaded my ASOT600 videos because they are around 200mb each.

Here’s the video clip of my favorite Guns N’ Roses song: November Rain.

Sectarian Upbringing = Orthodox Law

[YouTube]

I just remembered this video that LBC’s Cheyef 7alak team produced back in June 2012 to fight sectarianism in Lebanon and raise awareness among the young Lebanese generations. Sadly enough, we’ve adopted an electoral law (taking aside all political considerations) that promotes sectarianism and makes kids sound like the ones in the ad.

I don’t care who you follow or vote for, each one of us has a social and an ethical responsibility to refuse this backwards thinking and this destructive way of dividing Lebanese into sects and obliging each to vote for his own sect only. By doing that, Lebanon, as described so well by Elias, “could find itself in breach of UN protocols and other conventions on human rights that require certain basic democratic principles like equality of suffrage, guarantees of the free expression of the will of the voter, etc. In other words, Lebanon’s confessional system would become a liability for its international obligations, which has often created opportunities for activists to get progressive legislation passed (as in the case of the anti-smoking ban).”

Video showing the injured soldiers in Arssal

[YouTube]

Here’s a video uploaded by LBCI yesterday showing Arssal’s residents taking out the injured soldiers in an ambulance. Since we have proof that there were injured, why doesn’t the army interrogate them and tell us what really happened?

Miss Universe 1971 Georgina Rizk

[YouTube]

I was checking out Georgina Rizk videos on YouTube today when I saw this one where she’s making out with a guy on the beach [Minute 5:20 to Minute 5:40]. I know it’s not a big deal, at least not to me, but imagine this happening today and the Lebanese reacting to it. It would probably create a scandal and become the talk of the town. For all I know, it might get censored by the authorities as well.

When you think about it, it’s quite sad how we’ve come from such glorious years that were the 70s to what we have today.

Divanessa – Aman

This is Divanessa’s latest video clip. I like the music but why are there Mummies in the clip?

Lebanese violin player Divanessa (Vanessa Abdo Nassar) was born in Montreal-Canada and grew up in Lebanon. She was just nine years old when she started playing violin, her music is a fusion of occidental grooves and oriental spirits. [Link]
