Thanks to Elie Fares, an email I received from L and Alf who left a comment for what will be the first “Looks Like Beirut” certificate sent in French. Elie’s A Separate State of Mind explains it well:
Gérald Dahan, a French imitator and comedian, faked being Louis Alliot, the #2 man of Le Pen’s right-wing Front National, and called UMP candidate to the legislative elections and former minister Nadine Morano, who’s of Italian origins.
Seconds later, a seemingly busy Morano hurries to end the conversation and does so by pitching a final idea which she believes should be enough to bring the fake-Alliot to her side. She declares her support for Marine Le Pen’s proposal not to let foreigners vote in France. Her argument?
“J’ai pas envie que ça devienne le Liban chez moi.”
I don’t want it becoming Lebanon here.
I’m very much looking forward to sending this “Looks Like Beirut” certificate, though maybe I’ll need to edit it to “Looks Like Lebanon”.
