Lebanon domestic woes amid deep rooted corruption

When one tries to follow Lebanese politics, it is as if nothing of significance took place in Beirut, Tripoli, Baal Bek and the other cities and districts over since deep into the last century. The same name of political families and dynasties are heard now as in 2005, 1990 or even earlier. Maronite, Shiite and Sunni power brokers jockey for position and enjoy the forbidden fruits of corruption, while the country sinks into an economic and social abyss. What is in the cards for Israel’s poor and strife-torn neighbour to the North?

Guests Miss Paula Slier, Middle East Bureau Chief of Russia Today, Dr. Nir Boms, Research fellow, Moshe Dayan center at Tel Aviv University, and Amir Oren – TV7 Analysts and Host of Watchmen Talk. Host Jonathan Hessen.
