Is that island shaped like a cedar tree?
Yes, it is. And it may be built in Lebanon, the land of cedars.

We were forwarded an email yesterday with news that Noor International Holding, a Beirut-based construction company, plans to present a project named Lebanon’s Cedar Island to Lebanese officials. We’re not joking. We had to do some research to verify it. There was an article in Zawya about it, but we still couldn’t believe it.
Sadly, and laughably, it’s true. The construction company has already created a website for this monstrosity. And yes, it’ll be shaped like cedar.
And why not? If Dubai has more than one palm shaped island, why shouldn’t Lebanon have one cedar-shaped one? Because it’s environmentally detrimental? Because Lebanon isn’t short of coastlines? Because the country has natural attractions and doesn’t need to use Dubai’s over-the-top antics to attract attention?
What are you trying to say?
