Beirut is a melting pot. It is a place where different people from different communities live together in one society. It is a city where the old and the new coexist in the streets.
The contrast that Beirut carries has a lot of aspects. Here are 20 pictures that will give you insight into Beirut’s originality and diversity – showing you the different aspects of contrast it contains.
Lebanon’s unity is rock solid. Along the many long years of peace and war, civilization after civilization, Lebanese people have learned to live together as one.
Preserving our heritage, old buildings, and ancient ruins is also a way to conserve our history.
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.
