Les sciences politiques
An obsession
In academia.
The freelancer that explores the journalistic world
Published in academic journals in the US.
Once passive, I commented on blogs I frequented.
After the death of Minister Pierre Gemayel,
Such acts were no longer satisfying
So I set up
Streets of Beirut
To provide an on-the-ground analysis of what is going on
In Lebanon.
Every day, I wake up and look outside my window.
I see the Grand Serail
And I wonder,
When will I safely be able to call
The most beautiful city in the world
My home forever.
Words and virtuality
Is power.
Enjoy the streets of
My Beirut.
