Residents in the neighborhoods of Ain al-Remmaneh and Furn al-Chebbek have forced a bargain retail store in Beirut to close its doors after they protested against â€œcontroversialâ€ merchandise sold there. Ali Fakih, a Shia Muslim, was forced to shut down his Big Sale store because he was selling sandals (pictured above) adorned with the Christian cross. [NowLebanon]
I am not sure why would the owner of a bargain store gets sandals with crosses on them on purpose and ruin his business. He probably did not pay much attention to his merchandise. I hope that people will calm down and realize they are taking things way out of proportion.
