#15 Lebanon: We Remember so as not to Repeat Orders in Decay

    • News

Lebanon today is a haunted house: it stands, haunted by the ghosts of a civil war it has yet to recover from and a constitution that discriminates against its own people based on their religious sect. In this podcast, we go on a journey from the Holiday Inn in Beirut, to the little village of Kfarnabrakh, in an attempt to unravel the causes of the war and exorcise the demons that haunt the streets of Lebanon today. The question I ask is ‘Where do we go from here?’ I don’t have a great answer, but I will say one thing: Beware the chameleon.
