BEIRUT, Lebanon – In a country where most media are controlled by the
plethora of political parties, another Lebanese political entity has
joined in with the re-launch of a magazine first published during the
dark days of the Lebanese civil war.
“During the war, all Christian people [in Lebanon] used to look to
Al-Massira to see what would happen in Christian areas,” said Amjad
Iskandar, editor and chief of Al-Massira, the newly re-launched magazine
of the Christian nationalist political party, the Lebanese Forces (LF).
The LF was initially formed during the Civil War as a Christian
militia led by Bashir Gemayel. The militia was rebranded later as a
political party under the guidance of Samir Geagea, a former officer
under Gemayel, who was assassinated in 1982.
