Charles Aznavour - Emmenez-moi a Bourj Hammoud

Now that the French crooner Charles Aznavour has passed away, there is a huge (as high as a building) tribute to him in the Armenian populated area of Bourj Hammoud in Beirut. Do note that his original name is Shahnour Vaghinag Aznavourian. He did include Lebanon in his farewell tour mind you. Naturally, one wonders what prompted this - then again in the next World Cup when you see a gigantic German flag howevring a full street, it goes by the same logic - or lack of it.
