    •  You can take the boy out of Lebanon (0+ / 0-)

      But you cant take Lebanon out of the boy. Issa reminds me of the sleaziest sort of Lebanese Maronite businessman, the kind that has a dozen operations running at once, everything from real estate scams to importing stolen cars, to nightclubs with trafficked Moldavian girls. He's a stereotypical "gowar" or pimp, an immediately recognizable sort of which his own society feels ashamed. Not all Lebanese Christian businessmen are this way, obviously, but there's a small percentage who are, and Daryl Issa fits right in. Ironic that his last name means "Jesus" in Arabic. He's the sort of man that you would avoid doing any business with.
