Comment on A Faux Pas From Ashraf Rifi by Gianni

Sat, 2014-08-30 18:49

“Speaking of sedition, what is the purpose of raising an ISIS flag in Sassine Square? ”

Ya Najib, you know the answer. I’d bet you a bottle of Oban that it was risen by little clounies. It is a way of frightening the Christian voters…Remember election time is nearing; it is prudent to color them all black and there swoops in the little corporal to save you from the wrath of “SISI…”

Comment on Beirut is Amazing City Greening Plan by Carl

Making the roads even narrower? that’s crazy! unless an “Amazing” public transportation is put in place which I personally think is impossible in such a country. (plus the rendered images do not show how the roads are dealt with, they just Photoshop-ed some cars in a space that obviously does not fit one)
It’s just another one of these projects that looks like a good idea but end up being thrown somewhere in a deep drawer and never heard of again (at least I hope they had fun working on it).

I attended the launching event a couple of years ago. The plan is to have a green path that links Horch Beirut with the port. The Mathaf Sodeco road will be one-way and the traffic will be diverted to the often empty Tayyouneh Barbir road as I recall.

i think its hard to find a solution for this. if you give them- you encourage the scumbags behind them. and these scumbags dont give up. if no-one buys flowers, they will come up with something else to sell. if you dont give them- they get belted at night. id rather they dont get belted.
anyway maybe that kid was depressed or just not hungry. when i was in Lebanon a kid who was there sat with me and ate at burger king. maybe because at that time he was hungry. but the next day he wouldn accept. i asked him why and he said his boss will find out.

so whatever man… i dont know. if you have spare change give it to them so long as you have enough for the rest of the month…

“If the kid had any other choice, he would take it…”

I don’t think children have any choices! Child labor is punishable in civilized societies. Don’t encourage the pimps!

We all know where they come from and what they do to them. Parents, pimps, or whatever you want to call it.

If the kid had any other choice, he would take it. It’s easy for you to judge sitting in your AC cars and appartments. Hidding behind supposed noble causes just so you can feel happy and sleep at night.

Prostitutes have been pimped for centuries, and this thing has been dealt with for centuries to no avail. You cannot change the way things are by dealing with the kids or micromanaging them. By not buying flowers, you are hurting them more because they will get beat up by whoever is running the show.

Buy flowers and let them save a couple or be happy ounce in a while if they get a little extra. They have enough on their plates already. And if you want to change stuff, then act where it is necessary, government actions and regulations.

And instead of questioning silly gays in our country ,the ISF should question these kids and who are behind them ,as well watch very closely every foreigner in this country ,whether refugees or tourists or so called tourists

I think noone should encourage them and give them anything ,most are our lovely neighbours from Syria ,i am not saying they’re not humans ,but let them beg in their country .All they did is act like savages 25 years ago and now they beg on our streets .Truth is harsh ,but this is the truth .Noone should encourage or give them anything .We will see then who’s behind them, or who employs them .Let them all get out of our country ,as well as terrorists

These kids are rented by their parents to people who use them to make money. They bring them every morning and drop them in kaslik and i guess other locations around lebanon so theyd sell things or beg and get cash. Weve seen the people dropping them and picking them up at the end of the day. These people should be jailed and the parents should be jailed too. This is child abuse they have little girls and boys aged sometimes less than 10 alone on the streets begging. They dont care if they get hit by a car or get kidnap or killed. They just want money. I stopped giving them money a long time ago i offer them food or water and thats it. Theres also an old lady that sells gum in kaslik as well. I really think something should be done about these old people and kids they shouldn’t be on the street being sold by their families to slave in the sun or cold.
