The Lebanese Political Journal was a blog covering Lebanese politics from 2005-8.

This blog was created after the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri on 14 February 2005.

The Lebanese Political Journal has expressed dissatisfaction with the state of politics in Lebanon. The blog has not endorsed any candidate or political tide. The blog is seen as independent.[citation needed]

Authors[edit]

The blog has four authors: the original three are Lebanon.profile, Cedar Guardian / Gustave Cordahi, and zero_sum / Rami. Lebanese.lady appeared in February 2006.

Lebanon.profile writes on the blog more than the other authors. He has developed credibility in the blogosphere as an independent. His posts are often linked in forums run by Lebanese political parties. The Free Patriotic Movement forum and the Future Movement forum take things he has written and put them up in their forums.

The identity of Lebanon.profile is unknown. It is known that he was a student at the American University of Beirut. He is currently a political analyst for a private company and is politically connected. It seems he might be very closely linked to a Lebanese politician in the Future Movement. He is from Baalbak and lives in West Beirut. His religion and political affiliation is unknown.

Little is known about zero_sum / Rami. He never writes on the blog. Some suspect that Rami is Lebanon.profile.

Lebanese.lady writes sarcastic and comic political commentary adding levity to the normally weighty blog.
