Picture of the day: Lebanon’s two time zones fiasco

A picture taken from L’Orient Le Jour

One song goes with this picture, which is interpreted by a talented singer called Ms. Carole Aoun. The song is about the unity of the Lebanese people. It comes from a famous play by the Rahbani Brothers entitled “Sayf 840″ [“Summer of 840″]. This refers to the year 1840 where Lebanese Lords joined forces in a revolution against the Ottoman Empire in order to fight corruption and unfairness. The lyrics of this song are powerful and they go as follows:

To my martyred friend

To my homeless people

We will meet again

We will unite again

This is my promise to you, my imprisoned people”.
