Rotten pot - pot pourri!





In French, "pot pourri" means rotten pot... So here goes for the selection of the week in terms of political as which have become the bread and butter of advertising agencies:
Wa'ad or promise.... Is the name of the operation to rebuild the ravaged southern suburb of Beirut, the name must be a retaliation to the war Israel threw on Lebanon in the summer of 2006 under the name of "the truthful promise". The problem is the fact that the government still has not released a major portion of the compensation for the houses there making it a political issue with the Hizbullah.
Almaza, Lebanon's leading beer headlines its summer campaign with: This summer, everyone is eyeing the chair with a direct reference to the presidential elections to be held at the end of the summer.
The Lebanese women for civil peace are now displaying the many dangers of the civil war (A disabled person, a kidnapped, a dead one, and a woman attained with a neurological disease) and headlining it with "Woman, say no to civil war!"
The fourth example is already been dismissed as a caricature, it is an initiative led by the association of liberal professions, central directorate of labor unions, and economic associations to proclaim the period between June 1st and September 10th a "100 day truce" to stop the political circus that was going on between the opposition and the government.
