Badael-Alternatives, and other
Badael in al Akhbar: My editorial: The Bedouins of Phoenicia, or how the Lebanese states only recognizes sects, and never social groups. The ABC of food continues with the letter B: The Bedouins without the Badia. An adaptation of my post on olympic food by Rana Hayek. Check also the very good article by Rana Hayek on migrant workers in Lebanon who get routinely abused but who decide to accept it because they need the job; and how the Lebanese refuse what they consider to be "menial" employment, while they have no problem with it when they become themselves migrant laborers in Europe.
