Rami Zurayk tells me that today's print edition of Al-Akhbar carries my opinion piece on industrialized, factory-farmed meat. I wrote it in English, natch, and Professor Zurayk translated. Readers with access to the print newspaper can find the piece in the "Bada'el" (Alternatives) section. Wikipedia entry on Al-Akhbar here. It seems I am writing for a liberal, progressive paper which is against the American project in Lebanon. Sounds okay to me. I am not categorically against any American project in Lebanon, but I can certainly say that if my current President and his minions are behind a project, then it's bad for everybody but the plutocrats.
When the online link becomes available, I will post. You'll have to read it in Arabic, though!
