I was so disappointed to see the teaser campaign promoting Nancy Ajram’s appearance on the Oprah Show.   While Nancy Ajram came out looking like a gem in the Middle East, the images and narrative posted about Lebanon were pure propaganda and portrayed an overall image of Lebanon that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Over 15,000 Lebanese Facebook users have waged a non stop petition against this campaign entitled “Dear Oprah, Lebanon is NOT like that!” which has proved as a united Lebanese front from all countries and all ages.

Oprah has built an impressive empire by way of her objectivity, compassion and stature as a pioneer in the African American community.  Being all this, I can’t see how she could accept to post a teaser campaign with images and information that can’t be found anywhere online or through visitor’s opinions.  I am just hoping that Nancy will be strong enough to stand up for Lebanon and tell the truth about this amazing country!
