For the duration of the civil war, Fairouz refused to perform concerts unless it was in a united Lebanon. The only exception was one stage performance that took place in both East and West Beirut, and that was to make a statement of unity and peace.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
