Who Really Killed Celine Rakan?

I don’t want to accuse anyone of anything but the story is fishy from the start and the police should have conducted a more thorough investigation. It doesn’t make sense that the housekeeper killed the girl because she caught her stealing since we are talking about a 4 year old here. Moreover, the whole security camera blackout story doesn’t add up as well and I don’t understand why the parents decided to go on TV and talk about this, specially after falsely accusing a doctor at first.

Why would anyone want to go on TV few days after the death of their only child and talk about it and explain what happened? Why would I share a video showing my dead kid and let it go viral on all social media channels?

Out of respect for the child, I didn’t want to share the video but I still believe a proper investigation should be conducted.

Lebanon’s Biggest Burger At Rod’s Burger In Gemmayze

Rod’s burger celebrated its second year anniversary by making a 65cm wide burger, the biggest ever made in Lebanon. The patty was 4cm thick and weighted over 8 kilos. Around 3 kilos of mayo and ketchup were used as well. The burger doesn’t look that appetizing but it’s a fun idea. I’ve heard good things about Rod’s burger but I’ve never tried it before to be honest.

I’ve posted about this matter less than a year ago and asked the head of the censorship bureau to look at the bigger image and let the Lucien Bourjeily play pass and be the first one to attend it.

Censorship is wrong as we should be given the right to choose what to watch, read and listen. In case you missed my article, you can read it [Here].

Mabrouk to MARCH, Lucien and all the Lebanese!

After a long battle with the censorship authorities, we are excited to announce that the sequel of the censored play “Bto2ta3 aw ma Bto2ta3″, “La 3younak Sidna” produced by MARCH and directed by Lucien Bourjeily was approved by General Security!

Here’s to hoping this is the first of many victories in the anti-censorship struggle in Lebanon, and that the General Security’s Censorship Bureau continues with this open-minded approach to the issue of freedom of expression.

We are proud to say we finally won a battle in our fight against censorship!

I love and admire Gebran Tueni and I like the fact that the Gebran Tueni Foundation is launching such a contest but they should have done an extra effort and made it more appealing and interesting. There are no guidelines or rules, the contest is way too broad and has no theme, the poster is dull, the contact email is @gmail and the Gebran Tueni Foundation website is outdated and doesn’t even include the contest.

31,000 Syrian babies were born between March 2011 and September 2014 in Lebanon according to this report. This is yet another alarming number for the Lebanese authorities and the Syrian refugees as well. However, it’s never too late to start building proper refugee camps and setting proper guidelines and launching awareness campaigns for all the refugees.
