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...

Beirut, Bayrut, Beyrouth! The jewel of Lebanon and the most glittering city on the Mediterranean. The poets called it "the most European city in Arabia and the most Arab city in Europe". We are Beirut. Even the secteurs of the city are associated with beauty. Think of Achrafieh! Gemayzeh! The Corniche! Downtown! Ras Beirut! Nowhere in the world has seen such beauty, such sadness, such history, such love. This is preview of a piece I made as a tribute to Beirut, Lebanon, my favourite place in the world. The pictures I got off the net so if anyone can send me good high quality ones I'd be grateful.. also I'll reupload the video using those pictures. Enjoy!!

It won't work out.
I won't let them arrest you.
I'll always protect you.
The older guys don't treat you right.
You're searching for someone but you have found no one.
I could be there tonight.

And I'm not that strong.
She said, Once you hit 18 we can go mating...
That's too long! That's too long! WTF
Oh I could take you to prom.
Just let me ask my mom she could drive us.
I guess we'll go our own ways until
