In addition to what I posted yesterday, here are three cases as exposed by Executive Magazine Faisal Karami should be investigating:
1. The country’s basketball crisis
2. Ongoing corruption in sport
3. Crippling youth unemployment
Read the full details [here].
The “Roum Catholique” one still cracks me up!
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.
You don’t need to apologize for anyone. We love you and wish you the best of luck in your upcoming races!
I just want to make it clear to everyone who commented, shared the photos that appeared on the net in Lebanon yesterday. Yes I did photos for an Austrian ski calendar with other professional athletes 3 years ago. The photos of the photoshoot are not like the actual images that are now circulating on the net. The video and photos that you are now seeing are part of the making off, the preparation, it wasn’t supposed to go public. Anyways, I want to apologize to all of you, I know that Lebanon is a conservative country and this is not the image that reflects our culture. I fully understand if you want to criticise this.
Now that I’m at the Olympic Games, these photos that I never saw before are being shared. It is sad. All I can ask to each of you who saw this, is to stop spreading it, it will really help me focusing on what is really important now: my trainings and race. [Source]
Jacky Chamoun is a Lebanese Alpine Skier and is currently representing Lebanon at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. She happens to be very sexy as well and posed last year topless for a ski-theme calendar taken by six-time Mexican Olympic skier Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe.
For some reasons, the news just got to the Lebanese Media, even though it’s been out for at least 10 days and it is even mentioned on Jacky’s profile on the Sochi 2014 website.
There’s a video of her photo session being shared online but I won’t bother share it. She’s representing Lebanon, she’s hot and free to do whatever she likes so Good Luck to you Jacky!
This is brilliant stuff from Anthony! I think we should come up with a version for the Lebanese celebrities as well.
Arabian Business released their yearly list of the world’s richest Arabs and five Lebanese made the top 50 list:
Joseph Safra (New Entry)
Wealth: $7.5 billion
Rank: 25 (Up 6 ranks)
Wealth: $3.5 billion
Rank: 27 (Up 6 ranks)
Wealth: $3.4 billion
Rank: 29 (Down 7 ranks)
Wealth: $3.3 billion
The Hayek Family

Check out the full list [Here].
PS: I had no clue who Joseph Safra is, but apparently he’s the richest banker in the world.
