Badael in Al Akhbar this week. My editorial: Environmental action is morally (and ethically, same word in Arabic) neutral. It acquires its morality after evaluating its impacts. Rana Hayeck on the Hima, a pre-Islamic land conservation system. And Mohammad Muhsin on sous, licorice drink, which used to be a Ramadan staple and has now been replaced with cola drinks. Plus a beautiful picture of the Shuf cedar reserve by Tanya Traboulsi.
