Faysal Itani quoted in the Los Angeles Times

Nabih Bulos writes in the LA Times about the currency crisis in Lebanon, and how protesters surged into downtown Beirut for another night of clashes in what for many was a rejection not only of the new government’s makeup, but also the system that birthed it.

“To the [protesters], it doesn’t matter,” said Faysal Itani, a deputy director at the Center for Global Policy, a Washington think tank, in an interview on Wednesday. “The benchmark for what is acceptable is so far from the likely reality that we are all placed on a collision course.”
