    Beriut 25-30 years ago was one of the top vacation spots for the wealthy. mild climate, mediteranean sea, great food 5 star hotels...then ignorant, uneducated (both secularly and religiously) Arabs decide to shat in their own sand box.

    They are there because they are ethnic Lebanese. You think "American" and "Canadian" you think whites sitting on a beach. We have tens of thousands if Americans in Morocco at most given time - It's people returning home and the like.

    All dark skinned and arabic speaking.

    That, and it's been the hotspot of Arab tourism for years. I hear they have some cute Goats roaming the beaches.

    Don't even have to get them drunk !
