What Beirut is destined for applies to the rest of the country's cities. Beirut is not only the capital, it's the country's melting pot – all sects, tribes and parties are included.Among his achievements: More than 40,000 students from all regions and all sects benefited from scholarships and graduated from the best universities, paving the way for a better life for themselves and their families, at a time when Beirut and its citizens were abandoned by all and when Hariri was not even in politics.His unwavering passion for and belief in Lebanon and its capital is shared by his son, Prime Minister Saad Hariri, and the records of both shine as bright as the sun.Beirut bears witness to what Saad Hariri has stood for and how he has defended the city, taking forward his father's positive vision, continuing its development and strengthening it so that it has been able to fend off storms on all sides.
Detached from reality
Decade of hope awaits
All the king’s men
