Michael Young on Sami Gemayel; Qifa Nabki on the Christian Vote

Speaking of Lebanon ... (weren't we?) ...

As noted previously, the Gemayels did well in the Lebanese elections, sons of both Bashir and Amin being elected. Michael Young, the excellent columnist for Beirut's Daily Star, gives us a less than enthusiastic assessment of Sami Gemayel, son of former President Amin Gemayel, who won in the elections.

And while we're on Lebanon, a useful note from the always readable Qifa Nabki on "The Christian Vote" in the last elections.
