Lebanon did not feature in the top 100 countries of the list prepared by newsweek.
It is quite surprising to see most Arab countries featured in the top 100, knowing that education-wise for example, we have the best universities in the area and a very high literacy rate and health-wise, we have the best doctors and hospitals in the region. I checked how they ranked the countries and it looked decent but the outcome is unconvincing.
Kuwait turned out to be the best Arab country in the world.
No way!! Austria is only ranked # 18! and Germany is ranked # 12. That hurts. 😉
I don’t think Lebanon is one of the best countries in the region education wise since I’m observing a high rate of illiteracy and corruption that;s worse than before ,but it should’ve made the top 100 though
Good post Najib! We actually think we do have good education and amazing everything else. It is just our Lebanese sense of unjustified pride! What are we proud about? What did we contribute to the world in the last 50 days in education and other areas? The last added value we provided to humanity dates back to the Phoeniciens “red” color (reminds me of our retarded history book). Wake up Lebanese. You ain’t worth much on the global scale. Innovate, create and add value.
i think they just forgot about lebanon not because its so bad , but probably because they want to , i mean yemen and zambia made it to the list , and Lebanon , even though not that great, but definitely not behind those countries
