These protests have Israeli Mossad and US CIA all over them. Google: Israel's Oded Yinon Plan.

Voice of reason: Rami Khoury. This is a protest of honest Lebanese people who know the banks and their government leaders are and have been robbing them blind for decades!! Not to be confused with the anti-Syrian protestors of years past with their fake swag thanks to George Soros sitting on the shoulders of their boyfriends with their long, straight processed hair and signature mini nose bandages (men and women) indicating their recent rhinoplasties.. Disgusting. Where are THEY now? God bless these current protestors; they're sick to death of the corruption and the BS.
