Over centuries, the Bourj has come to embody pluralism and tolerance as an "open museum of tolerance." In 2005, former Prime Minister Rafiq al-Hariri was assassinated, and the Bourj witnessed extraordinary scenes of popular, multi-faith protest. Once again, Samir Khalaf argues, the heart of Beirut is establishing itself as a unique open space that allows people to appreciate their diversity and banish indifference.
