theres nothing wrong living in a house like that, its not that bad, some of these houses inside are amazing, what makes this picture sad is the electrical wires, that's all but i'm just showing the contrast between old and new

u know the entrance to achrafieh used to to look like crap..but they did a mini facelife(u know with the paintiangs of boat on the building and new paint jobs)there used to be a pic of it here..
i dont know who funded it..but it helped restore such a ugly site. ...it would be nice if more projects like that were going on. to help repair the homes from war damage, and new paintjobs and so on.

Emminent domain again

Fatfat: Court has to order demolitions

By Leila Hatoum
Daily Star staff
Wednesday, November 08, 2006


BEIRUT: A court order is required to demolish unlicensed buildings already erected along the old airport road in Beirut, acting Interior Minister Ahmed Fatfat said Tuesday. In an interview with The Daily Star, Fatfat said the Internal Security Forces (ISF) personnel "are preventing the building of more illegal constructions," in Ramel al-Ali, but "what has been built, the ISF cannot bring down unless there is an order from the court. The Lebanese judiciary is the legal party to issue the decision to tear down the illegal buildings."

Residents of Ramel al-Ali clashed with the ISF last month as when authorities moved to halt illegal construction.

Two children, aged 14 and 17, died in the clashes. Fatfat had told The Daily Star in an earlier interview that the military judiciary is conducting an investigation into the clashes.

Also Tuesday, Fatfat headed a meeting of the Central Security Council which discussed "the security situation in the country, including the recent grenade attack" last week in the Beirut neighborhood of Tariq al-Jdideh in Beirut.

He also explained that while recent CSC meetings had been described as "extraordinary, "it turned out that according to the law regulating the CSC, the council should meet every month. We were calling our meetings extraordinary which caused worry among the people. From now on the meetings are ordinary by law."
