Duraid Lahham Prevented from Filming in the North for Second Time

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Syrian actor Duraid Lahham was prevented again on Saturday from shooting movie scenes in the northern port city of Tripoli, the state-run National News Agency reported.

The NNA said that several youths rallied near the building and banned the technical team accompanying Lahham from carrying on its work.

The actor didn't bicker with the protesters and complied calmly to their requests, it added, without giving further details.

In February, Lahham visited Internal Security Forces chief Maj. Gen. Ashraf Rifi, a day after he was forced out of a Qalamoun town in northern Lebanon over his support for the Syrian regime of President Bashar Assad.

He was shooting a movie scene at a villa in the area when several men chanting anti-Assad slogans asked the actor to leave the town.

ISF immediately interfered and Lahham left.

Lahham, a comedian and a director, is well-known for his acts under the nickname Ghawar al-Toushe.

The youtubes of the holly chocolate and sodomy for Jihad are examples of what is wrong with our Middle East in general and what might be afflicting Lebanon also if we are not careful. It is funny and sad to know that there are so many illiterates people hijacked by some zealot men of religion and programmed to wage wars and terror whose victims are mostly the peaceful and enlightened people. Instead of one group degrading another as to which one is worse (holly chocolate or sodommy for jihad) why don't we agree that both are absolutely terrible and must be kept out of Lebanon at all cost. Let our national identity prevail over our sect affiliation.

Duraid Laham is and always was a secular person who was the only Syrian celebrity who had the guts to criticize the Syrian regime. Now, because he opposes the armed opposition dominated by religious nuts, he is being smeared

The fundamalist already started with hizbala openly fighting in Homs, you guys here are too late with your warnings, its only a matter of time and the violence will hit Lebanon harder just as Latakia today only looks calm..after Damascus falls all hell will break loose, the Syrian refugees are here to stay btw, and will eventually get arms. I'm just being a realist

These kind of comments show us the hatred Shia have for Sunnis. We don't stoop to your levels, unlike you wh weren't taught hatred towards others but you whole aqeedah is based on hate and deception. Inshallah Damascus will be free of your likes.

Correction, they are not his people, he is an accomplice to the criminals which make hima criminal as well. We all know who killed yaseen and housny al Borazon. Allah yintiqim minhom. The free people of Syria have a list of these criminals and everyone will be held accountable

What is king dollar. The man left the music industry because he was not content and he seen the behind the scenes which many people don't know, the more you know about celeberities, the more you hate them, because most are selfish, snobby, superficial. So the man decided he wants to change his, now you people accuse him of being funded by Saudi and him being a wahhabi. That is unfair to throw out baseless accusations

The difference lahham has no honour. Oh yeah so what kind of words do u want him to use, against baby killers, rapists, people beat people to death, or pull off a mans beard, or bury a man alive just because he didn't say bashar is god. There is no difference between us Syrian or Lebanese Muslims. We don't recognize Sykes spiiko. We are one people, united we stand. May god curse all who are on bashars side. Soon you will be in the garbage of history

The amount of racism here is appalling. A lot of the people spewing hatred at other sects are ones who claim to be secular. Yes, there are extremist Sunnis. Yes, there are extremist Shias. That includes people from both sides of the Syrian conflict. The hate has just gotten worse and worse, and it needs to stop. This is what's wrong with Lebanon. Grow up, bring yourselves to the 21st century, if we're gonna bring our country forward by dialogue then this ridiculous racism and finger pointing needs to stop.
