New Gandhi in Lebanon

The first sentence in the Holy Bible is “In the beginning was the Word” and in the Holy Qur’an in Surat Al-Alaq “Read in the name of your Lord who created”, but unfortunately we are a nation that does not read, a nation that assassinates thought on the altar of paper, a nation that fears the word, fears thought, and hides its thinkers , ashamed of the pioneers of thought then. But after the dot always comes the line, a new line that begins with a verb, a subject for an object that can be the mind and the conscience.

We found this new line on the Corniche of the River in Beirut, under the bridge, a man lying on the ground with a bed, building a house from the summer sky and from the winter clouds a roof wet with love. Muhammad, the Egyptian-Lebanese, is educated on the margins of this life, deeper than it seems, happier than we claim in our stylized diaries, richer than the owners of all that is mortal on it.

Muhammad links everything that is happening in one episode, the social situation, the political, the psychological, the health, the setback of 76, Sykes-Picot, and he knows very well that there is no salvation except with these weapons that he offers for free, the weapons of thought to secure mass destruction over ignorance.
Choose the book you like, and pay what you want. Muhammad is not a bookseller, but a lecturer in thought and the science of the intellectual revolution

Muhammad or Gandhi of Lebanon, calling for a revolution that begins with reading, in the hope that we will become a nation that reads.
