To be a politician in Lebanon, you need to master magic, have skills as a juggler, be sugar-coated with hypocrisy, and hold aspirations – in line with your sect – that never come transpire.Lebanon, with its "unique" democracy, has suffered a mood of despondence over the past few weeks, manifested in protests and strikes that have come at a cost to the Treasury.
