Natalie Portman Faces Beirut

natalie (4)Last year, Natalie Portman was featured in this Dior Ad. Meanwhile, Armin Van Buren and Lara Fabian were both threatened with boycotts by Anti-Zionists. Gino at Gino's Blog posted this reply. It seems that the Anti-Zionists are also very Pro-Palestinian. At the moment, most Lebanese are too consumed with things like making a living, avoiding potholes, managing through horrific traffic, dealing with electricity shortages and inflation to care about all things Palestinian. Most don’t even own a Keffiyeh and most Lebanese are wondering where the Pro-Lebanese groups are in the absence of an effective and honest government. So this newest billboard by Dior has gotten international attention-Yahoo! News. Regardless of the controversy, the billboard stays. Not to mention, Natalie’s pretty face is nice to see on the drive in and out of Beirut.
