"Study Confirms that Lebanon is Indeed the Centre of the Universe "

"The study was unique in combining astrophysics, biology, sociology and anthropology, in a novel multi-disciplinary approach. The head of the sociology section, Dr Nader Habib, also coincidentally of Lebanese descent, explained the human elements of the research findings. ‘The Lebanese have perfected the art of marketing over centuries but since they don’t actually produce anything, the only thing they could market was themselves. We have established beyond doubt that this is an evolutionary projection of the fact that Lebanon is the centre of the universe.’"

And liberal audiences can’t get enough of them. Perhaps it’s because, alongside the odd bit of self-criticism, they are all so reassuringly insistent that, in an increasingly complicated world, America just keeps on doing the right thing.
