Lebanese renowned actor and director George Khabbaz is starring in a Ramadan show on Shahid called “Al Narr bil Narr” (Fire with Fire). The series deals with the daily social conflict between the Lebanese and the displaced Syrians on Lebanese soil and one of the scenes between Khabbaz (who plays Aziz) and a Syrian teacher (Maryam) has been making the rounds online and getting mixed reactions from viewers.

The 2 minute confrontation sums up 10 years of struggle for Syrian refugees forced out of their homes and exposed to all sorts of racism and hate and for Lebanese citizens struggling with an ever worsening economic crisis and the disastrous consequences of the Syrian war. No matter how one reacts to this scene, I think we can all agree both are amazing actors.
