“Ya Ghassan” is all we’ve heard these past few days. A woman was shouting “Hertzel” while video-bombing a Swedish reporter in the Western Wall of Jerusalem. The video went viral in the Middle East. Most people think she said “Ghassan,” but she actually said “Hertzel.”
But as you know, Lebanese people are extra. Yesterday, the restaurant Sandwich W Noss offered 50% to all the people who are named Ghassan. Also, Malik’s Bookshop is offering footballs to everyone who’s called Ghassan. A nightclub even played a remix of the video.
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.
