Byblos Bank: Franklin Ben Yammine

So Byblos Bank is - like all other banks - trying to encourage Lebanese people to use the Lebanese Pound and not the USD so much that now there are no extra fees (while using the same card) and the user gets 50% more points. And Byblos Bank does so with the help of one Franklin Ben Yammine a Lebanese immigant who took off his fez when he landed in America and rebaptized himself as one Benjamin Franklin foregoing his Lebanese roots. Ah well, they actually stamped his face on the 100 Dollar bill!
