November 18, 2016 The New York Times

Elias Muhanna in The New York Times, "For us children, it was a geography lesson meant as preparation for the strange homecoming that always follows a great war. Lebanon then, like Syria now, seemed finished as a state or a coherent nation, and one day we would have to make our way through its contorted political landscape, and find a new place in it."
