Fingerprinted
Today I had to go to the Criminal Investigations (translated from Arabic) building in Kuwait City to get fingerprinted for my residency. I went at around 11:00 a.m. and it was boiling hot. I couldnt hold the steering wheel. Whats worse is that I was wearing a tie and suit. And when I got there, they kept sending me from floor to floor, and it was all pointless cos I kept asking the wrong people, who turned out to be the dumbest and such a waste of oxygen, cos everything I had to do was on the same floor, no need to jump around from place to place. When I finally finished all the paperwork, I finally got to fingerprint corner and..... I felt like a criminal. He was wearing those white gloves and grabbed my fingers, one by one, after soaking them with ink ofcourse, and pressed them on a yellow card board paper. Now that my fingers are all ink and no way I could drive, he just screams out "Next" and Im pushed out. So I spend another 15 mins holding my keys and phone in my mouth looking for a bathroom. I finally found one, got cleaned up and went around looking for tissue. Anyway, I'm back at my office now in the A/C..... aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh :)

A Pause
Israel suspended air strikes on Lebanon for 48 hours to investigate the strikes on Qana yesterday, killing 56 people, most of whom were women and children. Hezbollah also did not fire any rockets on Israel last night. All those dead women and children bought Lebanon only two days of peace, and I doubt we will get past one day. Also, Rice has finally given in to all the foreign pressure because she is witnessing first-hand experience of this slaughter, unlike Bush who is at home trying on the new sweater Blair got him. WE DONT WANT A BREAK, WE WANT THIS TO STOP!!!!!!
Update: Cease-fire my ass. Israel continues to strike south Lebanon. Rice is calling for an immediate cease-fire now and asking for international forces to be depolyed along the border. And Israel refuses cease-fire and vows to continue and broaden its attacks and is already recruiting 20,000 additional troops preparing for an intense ground assault on Lebanon. I smell a second Palestine.

Dahiyeh (Before & After)
BEFORE


AFTER

Look at the difference!! First picture, you cant find any empty spots; second one, no comment. Keep in mind, Israel is striking only Hezbollah strongholds... All Dahiyeh is Hezbollah strongholds??? Next thing you know, their excuse will be that they had to destroy all these buildings cos they were in the way of the targets they really wanted.

EDO
After hearing from Jazz for many months about how good EDO is, although I dont like sea food and it is a sushi place, we visited it yesterday for dinner. I actually enjoyed the food, it was pretty good, although the sushi I ordered was mainly vegetables and had some crab in it; that I can handle, but stuff like Salmon, no way on earth. Its just the smell of fish which I cant handle; the smell makes me want to puke. My dad loves the fish market, and he likes going there once a week to see whats new there. I go to Virgin once a week to check out new House CDs and my dad checks out new fish:) Funny, eh?? Anyway, he used to drag me along with him at first; I would drop him off at Souk Shark Fish Market and drive all the way to the other end till I cant smell fish no more, and would pick him up when done. But yesterday, I gotta admit and give EDO credit for job well done; the food was really good and there was no smell of fish at all. Good choice Jazz, we must go there again, and this time with your #1 fan ;)

Children Massacre
July 30, 2006
27 CHILDREN MASSACRED!!! Less than 10 minutes ago, an Israeli airstrike on Qana killed 50 people and destroyed dozens of homes. Those people were all hiding on the ground floor in a three-story building to escape being hurt. Olmert, that son of a bitch, actually had the nerve to defend this attack saying that Qana is a war zone and that the residents were warned to evacuate the area. And worse, Rice postpones her trip to Lebanon and was "deeply saddened by the terrible loss of innocent life", describing it as an "awful consequence", yet....... she still refuses to implement an immediate cease-fire!!! What the fuck has to happen for you retards supporting this war to realize this is not about Hezbollah anymore; its about destroying Lebanon. What the hell did the children do to deserve this? I see no difference between the Israelis and the Nazis. Apparently, Lebanese innocent lives are not enough for the world to realize that Israel must be stopped immediately; Hezbollah is just gonna retaliate with more and more Israeli casualities. That Olmert son of a bitch must be killed and before he dies, revive him, and kill him again and again 500 times for the Lebanese innocent lives that he has taken only to show how big of a man he is. CHILDREN!!! You fuckn man you!!
Sorry about all the insults, but I have been shaking since I heard the news.

Day at the Beach
Yesterday was Friday and my friends and I head to Hilton Beach to spend the day. Its a chilled place to be after a long week at work. Im considering getting a membership there. But what is up with the prices?? Its 450 KD per year at Hilton and 750 KD at Palms!!! Even the most expensive beach in Lebanon wouldn't charge that much and lets not even consider comparing.

Anyway, back to our day on the beach.... we spent it in the pool for a bit, then down to the beach, then tan, than pool, then beach, and the cycle keeps going. I finally got a tan.. For those that dont know me, Im pretty tanned and its hard for me to get more tanned so was very happy to get a slight tan yesterday:) Overall it was a pretty good well needed and well deserved day, if i might say. So i recommend you to check it out if you ever need to relax. Your other option would be Palms, but it isnt as relaxing as Hilton.

Soup
A few days ago I was with Jazz-Central at Casper and Gambinis after a long day at work looking forward to a chilled dinner and coffee. I was sick so I considered having a soup. I asked him what to have but he was too involved with explaining to the waitor how he wants his tailor-made shrimp submarine.. yeah he is a sea-food freak, especially sushi. Anyway, I changed my mind about the soup. But I was curious about one thing and asked Jazz about it, who had trouble answering me. My question was "Do you eat or drink soup?"

Well Jazz said you drink it. But I asked him how can you drink something with a spoon? That is eating... so we had this debate and we still didnt find an answer.... So what do u think?

Boredom... it can do wonders:)

By the way, if you wanna know who Jazz is, click on the link below to check his blog.

First Things First
July 27, 2006
Granted, Rice spent three days flying around between Lebanon, Israel, and Rome to implement an "immediate" cease-fire. But I guess the word "immediate" has a different meaning for her and the Bush administration. She says that "we want a cease-fire urgently. But let's create the conditions for a cease-fire, and create them quickly and urgently that will make the end of violence finally last." In other words, give Israel what she wants, leaving Hezbullah open for attacks and defenseless so Israel can run them down like bugs, and we will have a cease-fire. Ofcourse it will lead to a cease-fire cos the Israelis will have killed all Hezbullah militants. Who is she kidding??? All she did was give Israel more time and space to continue striking Lebanon. The funniest part is that she actually said she does not want to tell Israel how it should handle its affairs, ironic; throughout history, the American government continuously interfered in how other government should treat their country and neighbors, and they would always have their way, in one way or another. But now, with the country they are most influential with, they dont wanna "butt in". The truth is that the Bush administration dont give a damn about Lebanon nor the 400 dead civilians; all they want is to wipe out anyone who opposes them, irrespective of who gets stepped over in the process. Lebanon is just another "casuality of war". We have a war in Lebanon, but Rice finds it more important to fly to Korea to investigate the Korean government testing rockets. THAT COULD WAIT!!!! On her way to Korea she said, "I am a student of history, so perhaps I have a little bit more patience with the enormous change in the international system and the complete shifting of tectonic plates, and I don't expect it to happen in a few days or even a year." Patience my ass... if it were her country, lets see how her knowledge of history will come in handy and how patient she would be. I hate her and I condemn the Bush administation for allowing the destruction of my country.
Update: After Rice gace Israel "permission" to strike deeper into Lebanon, Israel wasted no time and waged airstrikes in the north, east, and south of Lebanon hitting a Lebanese army base, a radio relay station, and several roads.

Bint Jbeil
July 26, 2006
Fighting has been intense recently around Aitaroun, Bint Jbeil, and Maroun Al-Ras; these three areas have been where Hezbullah have been firing their rockets from into Israel, being the highest grounds in the area. Today, Israeli forces tried to capture Bint Jbeil; they do control part of it but not the town-center. Hezbullah has a symbolic importance for this town as it was a center of resistance to the Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon in 1982-2000. Anyway, the Israeli forces failed in their attempt and lost at least 10 soldiers in the process.

What Comes Around, Goes Around
Hezbullah was surprised by the Israeli response when they kidnapped the two Israeli soldiers. They expected a simple prisoner exchange supervised by German officials, as it has been many times before. Hezbullah grabbed the two Israelis from a military area, whereas Israelis were accused of kidnapping Hezbullah officials from their homes.
Anyway, Nassrallah, after a broadcast last night on TV, declared that the next batch of rockets will be flying deeper into Israel; I'm sure that got them Israelis sweating now. Israel is definitely surprised by the military experience Hezbullah has gathered and the arsenal they have amassed. It is making the whole world wonder where are they getting their weapons from and when asked they responded, "We believe where the weapons come from is irrelevant."
Hezbollah leaders previously have denied that Iran was supplying them with weapons, after Israel declared that the rockets raining on them were Iranian. Hezbollah has weapons made in various countries, including the United States, France, China and Russia. "Some of our fighters carry M16s. So you think we buy them from America?" he asked.
Conclusion: What comes around, goes around

Another Israeili "accident"
Six more Lebanese civilians were killed along with three U.N. members, and another U.N. member feared to be dead also, by a bomb dropped by an Israeli warplane on a post in the town of Khiam. Annan, describing the attack as "deliberate", demanded that Israel investigate. The U.N. members were from China, Finland, Austria, and Canada. Israel's U.N. Ambassador expressed his "deep regret" for the deaths and denied Israel hit the post intentionally. (Poor fellow - so innocent) He then continues farting from his mouth and says, "I am shocked and deeply distressed by the hasty statement of the secretary-general, insinuating that Israel has deliberately targeted the U.N. post," he said, calling the accusations "premature and erroneous". (BULLSHIT!!!!)
Ok this goes to show one and only one fact, and if nobody sees this, then you are either stupid or very stupid. Maybe Israel is not targetting civilians, they would if they didnt have to deal with the wrath of the humanitarian organizations all over the world, but they, sure as hell, are not scanning their targets before striking. Very simply, they aim at a target and strike, be it by land, sea, or air and hope for minimal casualities, not because they care only because they dont want the other countries pressuring them. Maybe now that they killed four U.N. members, from different countries, the rest of the world will realize the brutal truth behind the Israeli attacks and stop this shit!!
Update: Olmert expressed "deep regret" Wednesday over the deaths of the peacekeepers saying they were killed mistakenly and was unsatisfied with Annan's accusation. He promised a thorough investigation and said the results would be presented to Annan.
And the bullshit continues......... so he was sad for the deaths of the U.N. peacekeepers, but he was ok with all the innocent Lebanese civilians.

Rice in Rome
Condoleeza Rice is in Rome meeting with Middle East key players to discuss what is needed to be done in order to stop the massacres occuring in both Lebanon and Israel. Both sides are firing at civilians and calling them either "accidents" or "casualities of war", and that is what is causing the whole world to rise against this war. Anyway, Rice and the bunch will be discussing methods of disarming Hezbollah and and assemble an international peacekeeping force to enforce the peace. Lets wait and see what happens next.
Update: Nothing happened. All the leaders were pressuring Rice to call for an immediate cease-fire but she refused and held her ground, saying that Hezbullah has to give up the two Israeli soldiers and be disarmed before a cease-fire is implemented. Why am I not surprised?

Thank You Saudi Arabia
Everyone all over the world has been donating amounts of money which seem to be substantial, but when witnessing the damage incurred upon Lebanon, its all peanuts. Saudi Arabia has been trying to help Lebanon in anyway possible; being one of the American allies, Saudi officials attempted peace talks with Israel through the U.S. to implement an immediate cease-fire. But, obviously, they were denied that request. People all over the world have been helping Lebanon in one way or another, be it through letters, demonstrations, donations, blogging (that would be me and many others like me - believe me there are thousands), and much more. Yesterday, my jaw dropped when I heard the news announcing the aid Saudi Arabia sent Lebanon --> 500 million dollars as a GIFT and 1,000,000,000 (9 0's!!!) as a LOAN WITH NO INTEREST! Yeah, I would say that would help a lot in rebuilding the country, that is, if the many corrupt politicians we have decide not to take a couple of millions to buy a yacht or a house in Beverly Hills. But I feel secure knowing that Seniora is in charge now; I look at him and I see a person who loves his country. Our president??? Dont get me started, just throw him a banana to chew on until all this is over and watch him try to take the credit for it. Anyway, I just wanted to say:
THANK YOU SAUDI ARABIA

Rice in Beirut
July 24, 2006
Condoleezza Rice made a surprise visit to Lebanon less than an hour ago to initiate diplomatic efforts aimed at ending the 13 days of warfare. Rice is to meet with Saniora soon and then continue on to Israel. Her mission is to resolve this great crisis that has destroyed the Middle East and threatens to engulf other countries in the region. Lets wait and see what happens. I doubt she will be able to do anything for Lebanon since it is Israel's best interest that drove her to Beirut, and Hezbullah will definitely not negotiate with the U.S. Moreover, Bush has opposed an immediate cease-fire, saying the root cause of the conflict — Hezbollah's domination of south Lebanon — must be resolved.

Update 1: after 4 hours of meeting with Seniora, Rice's visit turned out to be useless cos all she did was repeat Israel's demands of dismantling Hezbollah and that a cease-fire was out of the question. Bush's administration did do a smart move though: they sent humanitarian aid worth $30 million; although appreciated, we dont want aids to shut us up, we want this to end. Everyone knows Bush and his people can end this if they want and initiate negotiations, it is the most influential country at this moment.

Update 2: At 10:00 a.m. 25th of July (next day) Rice said "It is time for a new Middle East. It is time to say to those that don't want a different kind of Middle East that we will prevail. They will not."

Standing next to her is Olmert, with a smile on his face, said "Israel is determined to carry on this fight against Hezbollah." He said his government "will not hesitate to take severe measures against those who are aiming thousands of rockets and missiles against innocent civilians for the sole purpose of killing them."

I say: If Hezbullah is aiming rockets at civilians, then what the hell does he call the 400 people killed in Lebanon of which only 10 were militia? Casualities of war? Funny how Israel managed to "justify" all those deaths with reasons I would refer to as bullshit fed to the people; and the most disgusting part is that America continues to back those actions.

The Press in Israel
I was browsing through the foreign news sites today and saw an article that got my attention on how there is a difference in points of view on the war on Lebanon in Israel. Israel's Arabic and Hebrew press split as Israel's Arabic-language papers have been raging against the "massacres" in Lebanon whereas Hebrew-language express support for the campaign.

Even the Israeli people condemn what its own government is doing to Lebanon and, in turn, what they are doing to their own country. Everyone thought that, with their advanced weaponry and technology, Israel would wipe out Hezbollah in a few days, get their soldiers back, and expect to look like heroes in front of the world. THEY WERE WRONG! They killed over 375 Lebanese people, destroyed much of the infrastructure, paralyzed the economy, left close to a 1,000,000 people homeless and way more; on the other hand, there were many deaths and injuries in Israel, severe destruction and damage to the economy, thousands fleeing to underground bunkers, and more. The Israeli and Lebanese people have had more than enough wars during their lifetime. The Israeli people supported this attack on Hezbollah at first, thinking their army will have no trouble eliminating them and believing the bullshit that this attack is an act of self-defense, but when they saw that Hezbollah is putting up a strong fight and that the Israeli army is only performing massacres and destroying the country as a whole, things changed. Whereas in Lebanon, supporters of Hezbollah are increasing; granted, many Lebanese blame Hezbollah for starting this fight, but they are becoming more aware that this war was inevitable and that Hezbollah is the only front stopping another Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Now, the people support Nassrallah because Hezbollah is the only thing that will defend the solidarity of Lebanon, since all the outside countries have proved to be nothing but a bunch of pussies who are full of talk. STOP FEEDING US YOUR BULLSHIT!!!

Check out this link on BBC and get an idea of what the Israeli press is all about.

Recognize
The CNN are taking a vote on whether the Israeli response is justified. A few days ago, it was a "yes". Can you believe this shit???? And it wasn\t a small difference, there were actually double the number of supporters of this war than those against. There were actually more people justifying this horrifying invasion. Goes to show, nazis still live among us. All those need to be skinned and dipped in salt water, maybe they will get a taste of how it feels to be burned alive.

Since day 1, its been crazy; dozens of emails have been flying around covering the whole world including that of the petition (I have the link on my previous blog) and another relating to www.fromisraeltolebanon.org (i also have those pics on previous blogs). Anyway, today I thought of checking it again. AND GUESS WHAT!! The tables have turned!!!!!! As I write this there are 640018 votes against while 591607 with making the votes 52% NO and 48% yes. It's a sign that all our efforts to spread the truth of what is happening in Lebanon have finally paid off. Not only that, demonstrations are happening all over the globe condemning this attack on Lebanon.

I hate politics but I cant hold myself, there is one thing I just have to say. HOW FUCK'N STUPID DO THOSE ISRAELI BASTARDS THINK US ARABS ARE???!!!!??? I mean they attacked Lebanon supposedly only because Hezbollah is positioned in it; ok so that was the excuse for hitting the south, bullshit excuse if u ask me cos they hit everything, not only Hezbollah positions. Then they hit the airports, roads, and ports cos Hezbollah uses them for transporting weapons; another bullshit excuse cos they paralyzed the country and imprisoned the people. Then, they hit the lighthouse in Manara, which is located only 100 meters away from my house in Beirut by the way, again to prevent ships from bringing weapons into Lebanon, although Israeli ships formed a blockade on the outskirts of Lebanon; more bullshit. Then they hit communication towers, disabling television broadcasts and mobile telephone reception; what's that?????? let me guess, so that hezbollah troops can't call each other?? if thats what u think, then YOU ARE FUCK'N STUPID!!!! it's pretty obvious they dont want media to deliver the real pictures of the terror Israel has delivered to Lebanon and want to paralyze the people as much as possible. They dont want to destroy Hezbollah, they want to destroy Lebanon as a whole. Not only that, they are also striking targets in the North!! For FUCK sake, Hezbollah is in the south, what are they doing hitting the north.... All this, and still the United States says Israel is acting in self-defense.. NO COMMENT!!

Show your support to Lebanon in this difficult time whichever way you can, by voting on the link below and by adding comments on news websites against the Israeli aggression e.g. BBC.

Demonstration in Kuwait
July 22, 2006

A few weeks ago, there was a demonstration facing the parliament on the Arabian Gulf Road, where dozens of people were supposedly gathered to support Lebanon. I had received an sms message asking me to join and spread the word, so I did. But when my friends and I got there, all we saw were flags for Hezbollah and only a couple of Lebanese people; so we left. Its not that I'm against Hezbollah, I mean they are the only thing standing against another Israeli invasion of Lebanon, although they did start this whole fight. We are at a point of no return, if Hezbollah is disarmed, then the Israelis would have won and they will end up pushing Lebanon around for years and decades to come; so we are at a point where we have to support them cos a cease-fire is out of the question. Israel and Hezbolah are giving each other hell, and Lebanon is just cleaning up the mess they are leaving behind and there is nothing we can do about it but speak out loud asking the support of stronger powers to influence a cease-fire. Anyway, sorry I kinda drifted away from the subject. So yesterday morning I receive another SMS from "Lebanese in Kuwait" group asking people to gather in front of Kuwait Airways in Kuwait City, requesting all to wear white t-shirts and carry only the Lebanese flag. And we were all glad cos we thought it would be a pro-lebanon demonstration and media would be covering it and deliver our message to the outside countries. After gathering, everyone marched down to the Gulf Road, where there was an even bigger gathering. Again, all we say were Hezbollah flags and everyone was chanting "Death to Israel" and "Hit Tel Aviv". Ten minutes later, we were gone. Another disappointment cos we wanted to support Lebanon, but they were supporting the war on Israel. I did manage to take some photos. Supporters of Hezbollah are spread all over the planet and I have a feeling that this war will spread beyond the Lebanese borders.

Superman Returns
Yesterday was the 7th day of the war on Lebanon. I had spent a week doing nothing but work and watching the news; even sleep is something I haven't been doing just in case I miss something on the news. Believe me, if I didnt have to go to work, I would sit at home all day stuck to the TV following the news. But yesterday, I had to get out and get my mind off things a bit; a kind-of recharge I guess. A friend of mine, Taline, works in Gulf Bank and was awarded a few free tickets to the "Superman Returns" premium. And, knowing that I'm a Superman fan, naturally she invited me along. One word describes my reaction when I got out.... WOW!!! I loved the movie, all the way from the beginning to the end. Maybe the end could have been a little less dramatic, but overall two thumbs up. The intro of the movie, with the music and the graphics, gave me an adrenaline rush cos it felt like the re-birth of superman. I dont wanna ruin the movie for anyone but I just have to say that the scene at the beginning, when Superman saves the plane, was incredible; what an amazing way to start off the movie. I will be watching it again for sure. It is one of those movies when you watch every detail and don't talk to the person next to you. But I gotta admit, my friend Steve had a funny comment when Superman pushes a plane in mid-air to "give it a boost".... shoo "paper plane haydy, eh??":) You had to be there for it. Anyway, I was smiling throughout the whole movie and got out with a huge smile on my face. So if you're wondering on whether or not to watch it....... GO WATCH IT!! and the best part is that there are no cut scenes, well maybe one kiss scene. Enjoy:)

Blair Buys Bush a Sweater
It's interesting to know what kind of "people" are running this world.....

"See, the irony is, what they really need to do is to get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this s**t, " Bush said to Blair.

A Friend in Beirut
A friend of mine, Rayane, is stuck in Beirut with her family and trying her best to survive and help those that need help. She sent an email to all her friends. She had the following to say:

"Dear friends,

Let me start by saying that my family and I are safe and well, and lucky to be in Ras Beirut with power generators and everything we might need. And thanx to those who called me for support.

One of you asked me what's the word on the street. I don't have an answer to that because no one is on the streets... I've never seen Lebanese people this afraid before... Many have left to their villages and mountain houses, and everyone is staying home, so people are not mingling, at least not me or people in my situation (no neighbourhood life or extended family or shelters...)

Anger against is Israel and its absolute insanity, and the passivity and insanity of the international community is a given. I can tell you that lots of people are also angry with Hizballah (from what I hear on the news) for carrying out their mission without consulting or warning the government and doing it in this specific context when the consequences, which are completely out of proportion and completely FUCKED UP (for lack of a better word), could have been expected.

At the same time there is support for the resistance and I'm sure many were very happy to see the army ship hit yesterday (as I was), despite the expected consequences. They've paralyzed the country it's going to take years to repair the physical damage alone.

Personally Nasrallah's speech yesterday angered me a lot, he claims this war is for the Lebanese people and thanks those from all regions who "presented" victims, as if they chose it, and then he says that Israel is attacking Mohamad and Ali's children. If the war is for the Lebanese then why is this about Mohamad and Ali's children? Is Lebanon a Shiaa state? Not to mention that the Lebanese existed before Islam and Christianity and even Judaism. And if this is for the Lebanese, why did they carry out their plans independently of those who represent the Lebanese people? And if this is about the Shiaa, then why get the entire Lebanese population involved?

This is the word in the streets of Rayane's head, which is bursting with anger and sadness and frustration and boredom. I wish I could be of some use, but I can't think of anything useful to do at this point, especially that my father needs me near him. My plan is to be productive somehow, even if on a personal level, and wait for things to calm down (hopefully sooner than later, I'm hopeful) so that I can offer my services where they might be needed.

I hope you're all doing very well, I have some friends who are trying to organize demonstrations wherever they are, if any of you can do that it will be great, even if inconsequential on the political level, the Lebanese people will be happy for the support.

Take care of yourselves, do email my sad and bored self when you can.
Hugs to all,
Ray.

PS: the phone lines are -(bombs just went off somewhere real close, I'm guessing in Dahyieh)- not always functional so don't freak out if you can't reach certain people. Email me names & numbers if you need me to check up on anyone, and I'll email you right back. I hope all your loved ones are safe and well."


Best of luck to you Rayane, we are all praying for u and all the lebanese people.

Nowhere To Go
July 17, 2006
My mom was visiting my brother who is residing in Michigan in the United States and was there for two months. She planned on returning to Lebanon last week via France. When she boarded the plane out of the U.S. on her way back to Beirut, the only thing that had happened was the kidnapping of the two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah. While she was on the plane, the Israelis attacked the Lebanese airport resulting in the closing of the airport and all flights re-directed to Cyprus. My mom was unaware of this until she landed at Paris. She was stuck. She tried to get on a flight to Syria but there were no seats available. She also tried to get a seat to Kuwait, but again all places were booked, not to mention they were charging over 3000 dollars per seat!!!! On top of all this, French authorities awarded her a visa for only 24 hours during which she would have to find a way out of France. Luckily, we have family living in France, who immediately rushed to the airport and took my mom back to their place. Moreover, her luggage, which was directed to Beirut, got lost and still have not been recovered. Next day, they headed to the airport and after some tiring negotiations, the visa was extended indefinitely, as long as there is a war on lebanon, which was a very compassionate move by the French authorities. Knowing the right people, that same day my mom was on a flight to Hamah, Syria. She landed there and took a cab, whom my cousins in Syria had waiting at the airport, to Homs, where my mom is originally from. She wanted to go to Lebanon, but that was impossible since the roads in were all destroyed. She is now in Syria, confused and without her luggage. It was a very tormenting trip but thankfully, she is safe now. My mom's journey of suffering was very hard on her, but that is just a small example of what the Lebanese people are going through; I mean it was impossible for her to get back to Lebanon, imagine how it must be for those trying to get out. God help us all.

Lebanon My Home

Today marks the 5th day of the war on Lebanon. Ever since it started I have been stuck to the TV staying updated on what is happening back home. I have never been a news fan, but this is different. Watching the images broadcasted on the news, all I feel is depression and sadness for what is happening to my country and my people. I look at the images and I see the same roads I used to cruise on and was so proud and in love with destroyed and turned into rubble. I used to drive on those roads and enjoy having the sea on one side and the mountains on the other, amazing sights. Now.... let the photage do the talking. This whole war on Lebanon is so pathetic, I relate it to two bullies who wanna prove who has a bigger $&*# and wanna do it on Lebanese soil, and in the process kill and injure innocent civilians. Lebanon got out of a civil war not too long ago and it is not, and will never be, ready for another war; we never asked for this. To paralyze Hezbollah, Israel is paralyzing all of Lebanon and the Lebanese people are paying the price, those in Lebanon and outside. And where the hell are all those other arab countries that kept praising Lebanon during the many past years. Now when it is time to express that alliance, nobody wants to get involved. The only country that actually did something was Kuwait, sending supplies. Otherwise, everyone else is just conducting meetings and feeding the listeners with more BS. And looking at our Lebanese political figures, I see only two people trying to do something about this: Seniora and Harriri; our "prestigous" president is at home doing absolutely nothing, still wearing a different tie everyday. We need a solution ASAP and we sure as hell cant depend on our authority figures; what can we do? I pray we get out this slump and all those interfering with our country's development just leave us the hell alone, we have had enough and it is our turn to rebuild. Long Live Lebanon!!

Starting Again
Apparently I created my blog a few months ago and just forgot about it. Last night I was with a few friends at Starbuks Marina, who happen to be bloggers as well (Jazz Central and Fractal), and they encouraged me not to quit on it. To tell you the truth, back in Lebanon, I was not into all this stuff. But, in Kuwait, I seem to have way more free time on my hands and, because of that, I have become more interested in the internet. Plus, its an interesting way to share with others my points of view on any topic. But, I say again, I'm still a beginner in blogging so if anyone has useful tips for me, I'm all ears, and sooner or later, I will get the hang of it. Looking forward to discovering the blogging experience and make the best out of it. Later....
