Many are expecting a change in the coming days but nothing has come out yet in the media.
On the other hand, some of the Lebanese media presenters such as Nedal Al-Ahmadeya have expressed their anger towards those who are standing still and not doing anything to prevent this decision.
As for the Syrian radio, it had launched a campaign supporting Fairouz titled “Fairouz fl Qalb” (Fairouz in the Heart) broadcasting her songs all through the day and holding interviews with Syrian stars and media presenters denouncing this court order.

Mansour Rahbani had composed most of Fairouz’s masterpieces including “Sa7 El Nom”, “Lulu” and others.
