Amman once again after a week in the city that was destroyed and rebuilt seven times… Beirut.

Beirut broke my heart.

The workshop was fantastic. The Danes are wonderful. Interfaith dialogue is exciting. A post (or two) due as soon as I collect my thoughts.
(I love Amman)

  5. Hello , I heard the JAMEEDKAST and it was funny. It was a surprise having you as a guest in the broadcast.

    The guys made me laugh indeed because they used KARAKY moderate vocubalary like 7amat: figs , dimis: stone , bewen : whistles , gawareet which is a conservative word that means : orphan. I would’ve been shocked if they asked me about Milad Abbassy in the first place because he happens to be an old hero of mine : )

  12. “بيروت البلد يلي ما بموت”

    It always rises from the ashes like a Phoenix…

    Neyyalekk, I really miss this city. Bass as Firas said
    It’s the place that never dies, and how it rises from the ashes.

    I personally find the way Beirut was able to dust it off after massive destruction, war and hate is VERY impressive.
