Lebanon: We are sinking

“It’s like the ship is sinking, and everyone is trying to get off. Is the ship really sinking? I don’t know. When do you realize – while on a sinking ship – that the thing is sinking? When people are abandoning ship? In that case; we're sinking!” writes Sietske in Beirut about the current state of affairs in Lebanon.

    If your people can’t forgive each other, then by all means please re-visit the past.
