Life During Wartime: Beirut… Ya Beirut

A nearly two-hour video of the devastation wrought on Beirut by Hezbollah and their puppets in Lebanon/Beirut government. You think that some blocks look untouched until you notice nobody has any windows or doors and that all the streets are paved, paved, in endless shards of broken glass. The most moving and devastating section occurs at the end, starting at around 1:37:30, when the filmmaker returns to his office/home and quietly takes an inventory of his shattered personal life.

Avoid crowds. If you live in a city, get out.

    Way back in the 50’s & 60’s,Beirut was a thriving and prosperous city. It was referred to as “the Paris of the Middle East”,for its seaside beauty and cosmopolitan ambience. Christian Lebanese made up a sizable portion of the populace,and were treated as normal Lebanese.

    Then the rabid islamists crept in.
    They created the hellhole seen above. Everywhere they go,death and misery becomes the new normal.

    I knew a family who left Beirut in the 70’s because they were Catholic. That is a lot of devastation from that “somebody did something” event.
