‘Reporting from Beirut, New York Times’ Anne Barnard has a piece titled, “Beirut, Also the Site of Deadly Attacks, Feels Forgotten” out today. In the article she details the double sucide-attack that took place in Lebanon on Thursday and killed 43 people. She contrasts the outpouring of support that Paris has received over the past two days with the lack of solidarity being shown for Beirut.
The perception of being ignored has seemingly taken hold in Lebanon. She quotes the blog of Elie Fares, a Lebanese doctor, who wrote, “When my people died, no country bothered to light up its landmarks in the colors of their flag. When my people died, they did not send the world into mourning. Their death was but an irrelevant fleck along the international news cycle, something that happens in THOSE parts of the world.”’
