The country is officially at war with Israel and has a law that boycotts Israeli products and bars Lebanese citizens from travelling or having contact with Israeli citizens. Local newspaper [I]The Daily Star [/I]([URL="http://www.arabnews.com/node/1107311/art-culture"]via[I] Arab News[/I][/URL]) says the ministry is looking to "take the necessary measures" to prevent the film from being screened in the country.

Wait, what? Is Lebanon actually at war with Israel? That aside, whatever the case, man, that's fucking petty.

I know that, I meant, are they actually at a state of war with each other? That's the part I didn't know.
So fucking stupid lmao [editline]31st May 2017[/editline] Lebanese politicians get so triggered even at the smallest mention of Israel [editline]31st May 2017[/editline] [QUOTE=Spetsnaz95;52294770]I know that, I meant, are they actually at a state of war with each other?

[QUOTE=carcarcargo;52295226]Anti semitism is very very prevalent in the middle east[/QUOTE] In the past five years it's become prevalent everywhere especially in Europe and the middle east. It's much worse in the middle east however.

Even the slightest mention of Israel gets people extremely triggered and offended. One of the reasons i hide my nationality when travelling abroad.
[QUOTE=meek;52296490]I don't understand why Jews have been so universally hated througout history. I wonder if I'm missing some historical context.[/QUOTE] It's mostly because of what's going on in the middle east between isreal and Palestine since 1948. Then there's the conspiracy theorists that blame everything on the Jews, like the elders of Zion, the five dancing israelis etc. Jews have also had wealth and power throughout history so people automatically assume if someone has wealth or power that automatically makes them evil and corrupt. Then there's the mention of a state of Israel in the bible and the synagogue of Satan somewhere in revelations I can't remember where but I've seen it before so fundamentalism is also involved as well. It's also caused by hate groups like the Nazis far right extremists etc. People also say things like if they're not evil then why have they been kicked out of every country they've been in or really stupid mental gymnastics like that. I've never seen any proof or logical explanations for why people hate Jews either.
