Beirut’s Zaitunay Bay, an upscale waterfront property just below the towering Four Seasons hotel, is a wonderful place to people watch and enjoy the breeze from the sea. Yachts from all over the world park there enjoying the beauty of Lebanon and the glowing sunshine. On my way out of this heavenly enclave, I see young men from the Gulf joy riding in an imported red Ferrari. All of this lavish wealth shelters those who would like to ignore what is happening just miles away.
