All the fires have something in common: they are blamed to have started by welders. It was as such that an illusive welder character was born with the sarcasm of the Lebanese people.
Their dark jokes about it became notorious on social media, particularly on Twitter. An infamous reputation picked up regionally as we now hear… while watching a totally unrelated event like the F1.
Yet, again, Lebanon doesn’t lack infamous matters for the world to try to match the Lebanese dark humor about them. One has only to go through all that is ongoing on the political stage to pick several.
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.
