Massive Protest in Lebanon

National Review Online has some pictures up of the latest protest in Lebanon.

One of the captions suggests that (if crowd-size estimates can be trusted) nearly 1/3 of Lebanon's population attended the protest. Wow.

According to Wikipedia, there are 3.7 million people in Lebanon, so that would be a 1.2 million people demonstration. That's pretty hard to believe, but technically feasible ... I guess.

Every estimate I've seen put the number above 800k ... still very impressive. However don't forget that a few days ago there was another, pro-Syrian this time, demonstration with a few hundred thousands people participating ...
