This picture was taken by a friend of mine inside a pub outside Beirut.
I hope that’s a banner for a new restaurant.

Apparently Najwa Karam did not just praise Hitler during MTV’s Talk of the Town as being charismatic but also went on to defending his killings.
Here’s the comment from Alexia who was attending the show:
Sorry to dissapoint all of u i was in the studio when she spoke like this part of it has been removed in the editing! Mrs Mona asked her if should go back in time who would she want to meet she replied “hitler” she asked her why she said ” he is charismatic and a leader” Mona replied ” but also an assassin” to which this singer replied ” he’s not he wanted to germanize the world and i want to lebanonize the world”
If this is true, then not only was she dumb for praising Hitler, but she’s a horrible person for even trying to defend what he did to the world.
PS: If anyone else was at the show and can confirm Alexia’s saying, it would be great!
I just read on LebanonDebate that Fetih 1453 was officially banned but I don’t see an official statement confirming the ban yet. I wouldn’t be surprised though if it’s taken out of theaters.
Why was it banned?
A number of activists on Facebook have been protesting at Sassine Square against the reformulation of the history of Constantinople in the film “Fetih 1453”, which, according to them, contains false historical facts and is “an offense to the Christian civilization”. [Facebook]
Am I for the ban?
Of course not. If you feel offended as a Christian, don’t watch it.
In fact, the only Turkish productions we should be banning are those stupid TV shows to which most Lebanese are addicted to these days.
