• MEMORIES OF RAS BEIRUT — WISH YOU WERE HERE

    AN UPLOADER'S ADDENDUM "A plausible theory constructed by the Lebanese sociologist Samir Khalaf has it that Ras Beirut, a promontory jutting out of West Beirut into the sea, and the area where the American University is located, contained within it until the Civil War a non-sectarian, pluralistic and open community of scholars, political activists, business people and artists unlike anything else in the Arab world. Khalaf is right, I think, although in the understandable anguish of his lament over Ras Beirut’s passing (it is now parcelled out between Druze and Shi’ite factions) he doesn’t acknowledge strongly enough the latent religious or sectarian feelings that were being temporarily held at bay. The fact is that in Ras Beirut, as in Greater Beirut, everyone knew what everyone else’s rel...

AN UPLOADER'S ADDENDUM "A plausible theory constructed by the Lebanese sociologist Samir Khalaf has it that Ras Beirut, a promontory jutting out of West Beirut into the sea, and the area where the American University is located, contained within it until the Civil War a non-sectarian, pluralistic and open community of scholars, political activists, business people and artists unlike anything else in the Arab world. Khalaf is right, I think, although in the understandable anguish of his lament over Ras Beirut’s passing (it is now parcelled out between Druze and Shi’ite factions) he doesn’t acknowledge strongly enough the latent religious or sectarian feelings that were being temporarily held at bay. The fact is that in Ras Beirut, as in Greater Beirut, everyone knew what everyone else’s religion and sect and ethnic origin were. They were acknowledged almost subliminally, it’s true, but they were noted. ... Still, there is no denying the terrible sadness and anger one feels about Beirut’s ruination...For some years one could, in Beirut, burn with a hard gemlike flame; even the city’s vice and profligacy had a brilliance you could not see elsewhere. The only thing contemporary Beirut did not give us was staying-power, or enough feelings of concern for the rather fragile foundations that its dazzling hospitality covered. The main consolation of these dark times is the feeling that since Beirut once rose from obscurity it might rise again out of its catastrophic destruction. But there seem to be few Lebanese who believe in such wonders." —Edward Said, 1985 ——— a film by Mahmoud Hojeij featuring Samir Khalaf, Vector Shibli, Nabil Ashkar, Mounir Shammaa, Kamal Rbeiz, Ibrahim Takkoush, Philip Safar, Leila Shaheen Da Cruz, Saadeddine Dabbous, Samir Makdisi, Leila Shahid, Kamal Salibi

Thick smoke coming from top of building STORYLINE Shiite supporters of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah and Sunnis backing Lebanon's US-allied government clashed in several Beirut neighbourhoods with automatic rifles and rocket propelled grenades on Thursday, security officials and witnesses said. The latest clashes followed a defiant speech by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah in which he said the militant organisations would respond with force to any attacks. It was the second day of clashes which has turned some city neighbourhoods into virtual battle fronts. The sectarian confrontation have also spilled over to other parts of the country. Lebanon's New TV showed armed gunmen shooting on the streets and gunmen taking cover on street corners next to shuttered shops. AP Television pictures also showed smoke rising on the skyline of Beirut, as gunshots rang out through the air. Thursday's clashes took place on Corniche Mazraa, a major thoroughfare that has become a demarcation line between the two sides, and the nearby Ras el-Nabeh area. Television footage showed gunmen taking cover on street corners next to shuttered shops. The violence later spread to Khandaq el-Ghamiq, which is adjacent to the downtown area. Shootings and explosions also were reported by witnesses and television stations near the office of the Sunni spiritual leader, who is allied with the government, and in another district where the opposition-aligned parliament Speaker has his official residence. It was not clear whether gunmen were firing in the air to force people indoors or were shooting at their opponents. There was no immediate word on casualties in the latest Beirut fighting. Earlier in the same area, troops in armoured carriers moved in to separate both sides who traded insults and threw stones at each other but they have not been involved in the current clashes. The army, which has been struggling to contain the disturbances, warned on Thursday of the consequences to the country and the military itself. "The continuation of the situation as is is a clear loss for all and harms the unity of the military institution," a statement said. The army has largely stayed out for fear of exacerbating the situation and avoid taking sides which would put it at risk, especially since the army's commander is the two factions' consensus candidate for president. The latest round of tensions were sparked by the government's decision earlier this week to confront Hezbollah by replacing the Beirut airport security chief for alleged ties to the Shiite militants. Hezbollah and leaders of the 1.2-million-strong Shiite community, believed to be Lebanon's largest sect, rejected the decisions, and the airport security chief kept his job.
