Now here's the catch. Fadlo Khuri as I wrote earlier, president of AUB tried to become the mouthpiece of the revolution taking place in Beirut (he was eviscerated on twitter!), but wait - wasn't he all for this dissent and tried to "hear" what the manifestants had to say (and spoke to them in English no less!). Apparently one only listens to manifestants when outside the university campus. Interesingly, Khuri insisted to be paid in Dollars with the top brass whereas other AUB staff get paid in Lebanese Lira. How cool is that?
As I said earlier, I am an AUB alumni - these kids are being as the AUB anthem says "true and brave".
And I like it!
