    Hi MB,

    Great synthesis as usual.

    Also, thank you for highlighting Anar’s exceptionally incisive take on the issue of web censorship in Lebanon.

By the way, Ahmad Fatfat has a personal website, and has a section dedicated to “accomplishments”, and another to “political projects and principles“. Principles and accomplishments: Such as the killing of 11-year-old kids and serving tea to the Israeli occupiers.”

    And frankly, it says it all!
