Controversy erupts: Jnoud el Rabb's attack on Mar Mikhael club sparks outrage

Social media users have been sharing images and videos showing the group Jnoud el Rabb (Soldiers of the Lord) attacking a club in Mar Mikhael under the pretext of promoting LGBTQ+ individuals.
 
The radical Christian group organization was initially formed to achieve self-security in Christian areas. Still, its name has been mentioned on multiple occasions for its opposition to LGBTQ+ individuals.

Reportedly, the attack happened at Om Barroom on Wednesday evening, as the bar was hosting a drag show.

In the past weeks, Lebanon has witnessed a surge in anti-LGBTQ discrimination.

Lebanese officials initially banned the Barbie movie under the pretext of "promoting homosexuality," this decision was followed by the Caretaker Culture Minister introducing a divisive law targeting the promotion of "sexual deviancy," encompassing homosexuality and gender transitions, deepening cultural fissures over LGBTQ+rights.

Even the Hezbollah leader in Lebanon, Hassan Nasrallah, was seen making anti-gay remarks in a recent speech.

It is clear that Lebanon's "stakeholders" are looking for a way to divert the public's attention from the current socio-economic dilemmas the Lebanese people are living in, as the political system is looking for a new "scapegoat," currently reflected in the fight against the LGBTQ+ community.
