Lebanon´s virgin-whore complex

April 26, 2009

Since ripping apart the natural coastline to fake islands has turned out to be such a smashing success in Dubai, Lebanon in its infinite creativity has decided to take the idea and run. Noor International Holding, the corporation that wants to manufacture Cedar Island off Lebanon´s coast, masturbatorily prides itself on its ´virtually unlimited complexity´ in transforming ´the virgin land into a blossoming productive community´ (cuz you know, ecological devastation is really, really complex). The cartoonish Christmas tree design reminded one blogger of ´Cedar Wings magazine circa 1986.´ The company chairman claims the island will ´nurture national pride.´ Not even the Emiratis would claim that, since they grant citizenship to only 13% of the population. You know you´ve sunk new ocean-level lows when Dubai is more straightforward about its stunningly awful profit-driven plots than you are. (from Ahmed)
