Did you know that Portland (Oregon, USA, I assume) used to be called “Little Beirut”?

George Bush Sr.’s staff called Portland “Little Beirut” in the early 1990s.  Now some say Portland is on the way to becoming “Little Dubai”  (a wildly overdeveloped Middle Eastern nation).

Well so is Beirut! Dubai built/is building Palm Islands and we are going to build a Cedar Island. And our Island will be the largest so there. Eat your hearts Dubai and Portland!
