Spite War

Basic Information

My first name is Zeina, Lebanese, impressed by my environment. I have deep sorrow for the old Beirut that I knew through my parents. I feel our present days are not so different from those during the war: inherited thoughts, clichés about religion; young people nowadays seems very enthusiastic for the war. Exactly like those of 1975. The war is endless.
