all what have been mentioned before is true, but what is missing is that this is all history or past. nowadays in Lebanon you might need to bribe somebody to get to your own car, electric power is going through many trouble, there is no government therefor no rules, in Bekaa you can shoot someone and leave and the said to be investigations will be carried by non specialized troops without an official doctor or some thing like that. water is highly available in Lebanon but most of it is contaminated with factories trashing into rivers and beaches and nearly all of Lebanon has no recycling plants. there is Sokleen in beirut which is a highly corrupted company that takes around 118 dollars per recycled ton (there are countries with 6 dollars at recycled ton), and in other places in Lebanon they just amass the trash somewhere near the shore like Borj Hammoud in Saida (Saidon) and where i live, in Bekaa Valley, they trash them in the woods and burn them sometimes releasing highly poisonous pollutants which's results now are showing in everybody around: cancer, poisoning blablabla. talking about poisoning, there is no supervision on the used fertilizers for agriculture, and these who agriculturing are mostly illiterate Syrian peasants or gypsies with absolutely zero knowledge about fertilizers. If you don't believe what I am saying you might want to come pay a visit to this place. there is no urban organization, nearly everywhere. Evidence are Hay al Sollom in Beirut and all of Bekaa, houses building too clos to each other blocking the sun and the stinky smell of "poop drainage" (I don't exactly know its name, I'm not a native english speaker) frequently shittify the lives of everyone around. Bribes bribes bribes... you can't imagine how much bribing is spread allover Lebanon, this makes it a very bad country. This was before Syrians flood the country due to the civil war in Syria (the so called revolution). After they came, to imagine the situation you need to double all the **** I mentioned before, especially about electricity. and newly here, if you leave your home you are uncertain whether or not you'll make it back. Suicide bombing is spreading in Lebanon with Jihadists from Syria, Tripoli, and Saida mostly, exploding everywhere from cafeterias to public transport vans to mosques, and recently attempted to blow up a gas factory but fortunately he failed to do it.If you go into jail even with a minimal charge, you may spend about five or six jailed before a court starts dealing with your story, and they might figure after your six year jailing that you are innocent and just throw u out. imagine that situation, your spouse sold your house while you were in jail and left you and are alone with no where to go and nothing to do. Well, stop imagining now cuz it have happened to real people. In some places like near some mosque in saida, declaring that are an atheist would get you killed. In other places like Jabal Mohsen, walking in the streets would get you killed. otherwise, the downtown,Beirut is a very safe and very advanced place just like somewhere in Hollywood. If you can afford a 2 million dollar apartment then I'd recommend you move to the downtown, otherwise collect these info and be glad you don't live in such a country.
