Beirut: its coast line, its bars, its hezeb...

Note the last touristic destination. How about that as an option for the reconversion of the resistance?

Great. Do they organize tours of Nasrallah's bunker?

Does hezb in Arabic carry the same dual meaning that "party" does in English? I don't think so but I'm just wondering. Because there's a political party (hezeb) and then there's "PARTY! DUDE!" as in let's get drunk, turn up the music and dance. But the pun cannot be the same in Arabic can it?

I just imagine these Australians in their shorts with sunburned knees and hiking boots, trekking through Dahiyeh looking for beer and belly dancers.
