Explosion in Monot Strt., Beirut

It seems that this one targeted closing the street as an attraction to Arab tourists (Westerners usually go for the authentic Lebanese environment, Monot is more Western in style), any way it is known that the tourists from the Gulf States who go to Monot, or even the Lebanese who go there are big spenders. This ugly act of terrorism is another one of those targetting the tourist industry in Lebanon. Would it harm tourism if we had more security at these places?

Moustapha’s blog post (titled “Bad Comparison“) made a good point about the difference between Beirut’s explosion and the one is Sharm al-Sheikh.
