Sois belle et vote lis le FT

The Financial Times has really been devoting a lot of time to Lebanon in advance of next weekend's elections -- more so than any other Western English-language newspaper I follow. Check out Anna Fifield's reporting as well as the commentary of Roula (any relation to Samir?) Khalaf, a more or less sensible staff editorial yesterday, and the incredible news that Hizballah is already in negotiations with the IMF on aid to Lebanon in advance of the poll.
