I just read this heart-wrenching, eloquent opinion piece in Sunday’s The Guardian.
Beirut resident, Lina Mounzer, is seething mad.
As she rightly says, these people are referred to as the “ruling elite”. There’s nothing elite about them. They’re the dregs of humanity. What did they do, in the past, with the millions and millions of dollars of aid to help the people of Lebanon? Those in the Ministry of Finance and elsewhere siphoned off millions for themselves, stashing their booty in offshore bank accounts.
