There is a very old Arabic saying that says “As you are, so you shall be ruled” (كما تكونوا يولى عليكم). This means that a people is ruled by representatives who are like them. This is especially the case in Lebanon. The similarities between the Lebanese people and their representatives are many. Here are six of them:
1- Jack of All Trades
2- Bad with dates
3- Fixing nothing by fixing everything
4- Anything can be resolved with a chair…on the head
5- Nose in other people’s business
6- There is no problem if we don’t talk about it, is there?
Feel free to add any others you have noticed in the comments.
