“Tripoli is so different from other Lebanese cities, maybe it should not be in Lebanon.
They annoy us with their clashes, I mean c’mon grow up like in Beirut, we have clashes from time to time but we stay cool, you just kill each other like it was the middle ages…
Have you seen their beards ? Can’t they just buy a razor or something ?
Why don’t we let them kill each other, they will finish their bullets and everybody can party again with a clean conscience.
This is not the image we want to give to the tourists ! Lebanon is about partying, about living, who cares about the clashes in the North.
Beirut is a great city, we don’t have any problems, I mean just look at the life in Gemmayzeh, if I were Syrian I’d be jealous. We’re the only Arabs that have so much nightclubs and I’m very proud of that. We have the only real democracy in the Middle East.
So please stop hating each other and put an end to these clashes !
Maybe they should have a Gemmayzeh street in Tripoli ?”
