Aggressive Low Profile Land Trade

Jizzeen! with shiite majority (850,000/population); Original inhabitants are not anymore there in principle! Hizbolla is not encouraging this rush for purchase, as reported on LBC "bikilljir2a" reportage on 16/10/2007; Hasbayya and Shoof till Jizzeen, North Bekaa and continuing to West Bekaa... Purchase-Attacks is in progress to connect Mashghara and Kobbilliyass!
Jebel Lubnan: Target is to circle Aley/Shoof and connect Mashghara to North Bekaa again.

Haret Hreik is changing: 600 to 800$/m2 were the rates of selling of South Dahyeh where Christian majority is being reported as native.

Actual reports say that not only Hizbolla is buying as input by name, however two main families are divided as Tajiddine family and Yassine family;

Ali Tajiddine & Khalil Yassine, Tajiddine is shiite and Yasine is sunni.

Ghbayreh, Bir Hasan, Shiyyeh etc... in South Beirut sold, out of need; but comments still that most did not yet return to their deserted homes. "Jizzeen is to be connected with the South" Chamoon said in commenting in deduction on the report.

200 to300 buildings in Dahiyeh are not inhabited! so, it's not a real estate issue!

*Plot# 411 in Hadath was bought by Tajiddine (Tajco); more trades are being recorded in different companies but owned by Tajiddine; Tajiddine activities are not restricted to housing, but to a large network of services like auto-shops, welding and repair shops etc...
*5000,000m2 in Darayya/Shouf by Tajuddine
*300,000m2 in Hasbayya by Tajuddine
*1000,000m2 in Jizzeen & Hasbayya too by Tajuddine

-It's being reported, BankSadirat Iran is pumping cash!
-Owners reported that $40,000 houses were bought for $400,000!!!!!
-Identities are being changed officially from North Bekaa to Taalabeya!

"Fraz'il Ard after Farz'il Sukkan"; Of courseJizzeen:

Tabbook block factories and lands in valleys:
400,000m2 surrounding the factory with amounts of $600,000 spent in abandoned valleys owned by Khalil Yassine.
More than 114 plots with more 1.5Mil m2 of lands most registered in lebanese and wifes of lebanese purchasers or by consignees!

Khalil Yassine a government modest employee... how & from where?
Moreover, after the chaos of news in the media sprouted with blasts, Yassine stopped registering all the remaining lands to avoid the media track.

"Haisam Aliya on behalf on Khalil Yassine interjected weakly saying that only trees are in that area... how can you nationalise palestinians in trees and bushes!".....!!!!

-Christians feel nolonger that they belong to that place....

Twin Fears:
-In Shiite: from Hizbolla future presence and prolifirations
-In Sunni: from future Palestinian nationalizations-(BDC)

Lebanon Time-Line

Introducing Lebanon

Coolly combining the ancient with the ultramodern, Lebanon is one of the most captivating countries in the Middle East. From the Phoenician findings of Tyre (Sour) and Roman Baalbek's tremendous temple to Beirut's BO18 and Bernard Khoury's modern movement, the span of Lebanon's history leaves many visitors spinning. Tripoli (Trablous) is considered to have the best souk in the country and is famous for its Mamluk architecture. It's well equipped with a taste of modernity as well; Jounieh, formerly a sleepy fishing village, is a town alive with nightclubs and glitz on summer weekends.

With all of the Middle East's best bits - warm and welcoming people, mind-blowing history and considerable culture, Lebanon is also the antithesis of many people's imaginings of the Middle East: mostly mountainous with skiing to boot, it's also laid-back, liberal and fun. While Beirut is fast becoming the region's party place, Lebanon is working hard to recapture its crown as the 'Paris of the Orient'.

The rejuvenation of the Beirut Central District is one of the largest, most ambitious urban redevelopment projects ever undertaken. Travellers will find the excitement surrounding this and other developments and designs palpable - and very infectious.

Finally, Lebanon's cuisine is considered the richest of the region. From hummus to hommard (lobster), you'll dine like a king. With legendary sights, hospitality, food and nightlife, what more could a traveller want?

Introducing Beirut

What Beirut is depends entirely on where you are. If you’re gazing at the beautifully reconstructed colonial relics and mosques of central Beirut’s Downtown, the city is a triumph of rejuvenation over disaster.

If you’re in the young, vibrant neighbourhoods of Gemmayzeh or Achrafiye, Beirut is about living for the moment: partying, eating and drinking as if there’s no tomorrow. If you’re standing in the shadow of buildings still peppered with bullet holes, or walking the Green Line with an elderly resident, it’s a city of bitter memories and a dark past. If you’re with Beirut’s Armenians, Beirut is about salvation; if you’re with its handful of Jews, it’s about hiding your true identity. Here you’ll find the freest gay scene in the Arab Middle East, yet homosexuality is still illegal. If you’re in one of Beirut’s southern refugee camps, Beirut is about sorrow and displacement; other southern districts are considered a base for paramilitary operations and south Beirut is home to infamous Hezbollah secretary general, Hassan Nasrallah. For some, it’s a city of fear; for others, freedom.

Throw in maniacal drivers, air pollution from old, smoking Mercedes taxis, world-class universities, bars to rival Soho and coffee thicker than mud, political demonstrations, and swimming pools awash with more silicone than Miami. Add people so friendly you’ll swear it can’t be true, a political situation existing on a knife-edge, internationally renowned museums and gallery openings that continue in the face of explosions, assassinations and power cuts, and you’ll find that you’ve never experienced a capital city quite so alive and kicking – despite its frequent volatility.
