Tripoli as a battleground

Residents of Tripoli discuss the sectarian tension in their city.  Tensions are high in Lebanon ahead of the release of indictments by the Hague-based Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which is investigating the 2005 murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri who was killed by a massive truck bomb.

  • some poeple forget that for more then 20 years tripoli has been controled by omar karami who is known to be "tight" in terms of spending money on the poeple of tripoli. in fact the only one who did something practical to such people is hariri on the fringes of nahr abou ali. so for those who are saying what did hariri do to tripol i would say what did Karami do to tripoli except leave it in more poorer conditions then it was when he took over as "wali" by the support of syria tyrant of Assad.

    Wlek tfee 3ala hayk manate2. Lebanon and the Lebanese should be ashamed of themselves. The way children are raised amongst scummy infrastructure let alone any is just sad or appalling to say the least. Get the toy guns out of our children's hands and vocabulary and I think the Lebanese will be moving one step forward towards civilization and peace. These people are really sad. They support billionaires who care nothing about them. They support leaders who don't even live in their own country. God help them.

    Well said M.Traboulsi... Reality hurts, as for Modern Tripoli, there is no much to say about modernism after 1975 and that on many levels : urbanism, architecture, culture, economics, socaial.

    Mody although i do agree with you that Tripoli is a very beautiful city on one side the harsh reality remains that us living on the rich side of town are rarely exposed to the true suffering endured by many of the city's residents. I appreciate the fact that Ms. Kollock refrained from showing the nicer places in the city as this should not be the focus... the focus today should be to ask ourselves the next time we go to the ballots what have the people we have chosen to represent us done to to improve the livelihood of these people? where is the government in terms of their safety and well being? why do i live in a $300K apartment in a "modern" city in a country where the literacy rate is 97% yet i still have to carry a bottle of gas to my house and climb 5 flights of stairs because there is no electricity? our focus should shift to the conic diseases our political and social and infrastructural systems are facing rather then to show a presentable image of the city

    That is not Tripoli , that is a very old and super-small area in Tripoli, that makes it looks as a dead city and too far away from civilization, I wonder why aren't you showing what you have seen when you are entering Tripoli or other areas in Tripoli? Really disappointed, tripoli is so beautiful and Modern City, you are becoming like Al-manar channel or Aljazeera.Net Please publish my comment, that is not Tripoli
