Lebanese blogs (via Avva)

avva found out some Lebanese blogs. Quite interesting read.

Lebanese Bloggers.
Lebanon Heart Blogs.
Lebanese Political Journal.
The Beirut Spring.
From Beirut to the Beltway.


Lebanese Bloggers. "Family and relatives are starting to top of their vehicles' gas tanks... Something tells me that everything the Israelis are doing right now is preparation for something much bigger. Going somewhere safer. Will try to update as much as I can."


Lebanon Heart Blogs. "And tomorrow when I will see the destroyed bridge linking my home town of Saida to Beirut, I will only say from the bottom of my heart: Enough! Enough wars, death and destruction! Curse you Hezbollah to hell and back! For all this destruction, for all this death! No it is not Israel fault! It is your own! Curse you!"


Lebanese Political Journal. "The Lebanese political establishment is in complete disarray. Political party leaders have no idea how to respond to this situation...An added element of pressure comes from the wealthy visiting Lebanese from abroad who are now stuck here after the airport was bombed...Life is going on as normal in Beirut, although a bit quieter than usual...The situation in Beirut's southern suburbs and Southern Lebanon is bad, but not atrocious."


The Beirut Spring. "The Lebanese hate Hezbollah today more than ever... I for one am not fooled. I will not heed Nassrallah’s call. It is time the last militia in Lebanon be solved." Но на следующий день: "However, this is not the time to settle scores. We are under attack and we have to stick together. So here’s my suggestion for an internal “grand bargain”: We will support Hezbollah for now. We will unite behind them as long as we’re under attack. We will not criticize them publicly."


From Beirut to the Beltway. "If the current government is unable to openly and effectively chastise Hizbullah by at least suspending their ministers, then they should all pack their bags and move to the southern border and suffer the Israeli anger. The Lebanese cabinet should convene in a Hizbullah bunker. If it’s a war they are too afraid to stop, then it’s a war they should fight... As for Israel’s leaders, perhaps they should listen to Nasrallah for once. Bombing Lebanon will not deter anyone. Olmert is a wimp with high-tech war toys. A mighty power such as Israel has to go after the real source and stop the cheap targeting of Lebanese infrastructure and civilians. But Israeli leaders are still choosing the easy way out. Instead of picking enemies their own size in Damascus and Tehran, they pick to destroy the livelihood of innocents and kill and maim civilians, feeding the backward resistance culture that pervades the region..."
