Tom is Lebanese…. As well as Jerry!

Tom is Lebanese…. As well as Jerry!

Breaking records around the world, Lebanese still party on Saturdays and barbecue on Sundays, leaving the week days for work, and by work I mean chatting, commenting on friend’s photos, harvesting the pink carnation and collecting materials to build a horse stable in their Farmville.

A simple cup of coffee and a cigarette pull creativity out of a Lebanese brain. We are born with natural raw skills just like uranium. Once these skills are extracted and enriched, they will result in a “Shakira” or a “Salma Hayek”, or even better a “Tom and Jerry”.

Awarded seven Oscars, Joseph Barbera and William Hanna (creators of Tom and Jerry),  originally Lebanese  (no need to mention),  managed to run the MGM cartoon studios feeding children’s heart and mind as well as adults with laughter, hope and imagination. And the legend started over a cup of coffee on a lazy summer day.

That’s not all! Wherever you see an Einstein duplicate, be sure that he has some Lebanese root somewhere in his family tree. And I can bet you on that taking full responsibility of what I am saying reserving the right to appeal in case any lawsuit is filed!

You all watched Rambo, Terminator and basic instinct, but did you know that Mario Kassar the producer was Lebanese?  What about Carlos Ghosn the chairman of Nissan and Renault, the No1 most influential businessman internationally? Rony Saikaly the NBA player, General John Abizaid head of the Us army’s central command, Tony Chalhoub Emmy award winner, Charles Elachi director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Paul Anka, Mika, Massari, Keanu reeves, Carlos Slim Helu with a $60 billion wealth, originally Lebanese born in Mexico and reported by Forbes on March 2010 as the world’s richest man, overtaking Bill Gates by just a few million dollars! Joe Hachem and Joseph Mouawad the International Poker players, Michael Debakey the first heart surgeon, let’s not forget Gibran Khalil Gibran… and I can go on forever and ever.

Stop by for a cup of coffee, you might run into a genius Lebanese, a famous Lebanese or Haifa Wehbe!

    I like your article. Let us not forget to mention the founder of Saint Jude Children Hospital Danny Thomas. However Amalia, Keanu Reeves is not Lebanese. He was born in Beirut of a Patricia Bond (a Britt) and Samuel Reeves (also a Britt born in Hawaii). If the simple fact of having been born in Beirut makes Keanu Reeves Lebanese then we should consider anyone born in Lebanon a Lebanese. This includes tons of people. By the way, here is a link to a list of famous Lebanese Americans (not to mean to belittle any other famous Lebanese worldwide:

    But I like you twist to the article.
