Lebanon: Calling for the boycott of a book

Arch.Memory at Lebanese Blogger Forum is calling for the boycott of the bestselling book “1000 Places To See Before You Die” because it has a “gaping omission that is simply shameful and unacceptable. It lists no sites worth seeing in Lebanon, a country that contains 6 of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites; by comparison, for instance, the list includes 10 sites in Israel, a country that contains 6 World Heritage Sites as well (counting the one in Jerusalem as being in Israel, which is disputed still).” This call is echoed by some other bloggers too.
