Shirin from Lebanon

At first, he's making Lebanese parliament members disappear. Then, he gradually tries to vanish Lebanon as a free independent country. What's next? The entire planet?

A Change of Seasons

Can you feel it? I have a feeling that a major change will take place...

A Savior

Lately I'm a bit depressed. There are a few things that went wrong in my life and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it. I'm pretty sure that you know this terrible feeling… of helplessness. I lie in bed, imagining the knight in shimmering armor that will come one day, sweep me off my feet and all that and provide a happily-ever-after, and then I turn to the other side, remind myself that happy endings live only in fairytales, and fall asleep. But I think that you should never say die. You can never know what's around the corner. Maybe my perfect match will arrive at my door tomorrow. Maybe our savior is closer than we think, among us.The connection between my search and my far-away homeland "search" for president is simply stunning. The search for a savior – one who'll literally save Lebanon, won't be in vain. I trust the brave members of the parliament, they'll vote for the best man. They'll vote fearlessly despite the threat of foreign interests inside Lebanon, interests we thought we had driven out after the murder of Hariri RIP.

Can you recognize him? It's our savior

The Lebanese Cruise – a Journey to the Top or Straight into an Iceberg?

Last week I saw the wonderful (yet long….) movie Titanic, which inspired me to draw this. I consider the presidential elections an extremely important event for both present and future of Lebanon.
These days Lebanon is experiencing a delicate situation and therefore we need a president who'll take care only of the Lebanese interests, and not of foreign interests which mysterious foreigners (and their allies among the Lebanese) are trying to promote.
I wonder, what is your opinion? Who will be chosen? Who'll make the best for Lebanon?

Nucleus-sized victory

Hiroshima, this is the first thing pops into my head when I see the last news flashes about the Iranian president Mahmud Ahmadinejad. I am horrified when I realize that this man will possess a nuclear bomb someday. It's even more frightening when I suddenly remember that he has "minions" around my beloved country-Bashar Al-Asad's Syria and Hald Mashal's Hamas. Furthermore, he has a loyal partner also inside Lebanon, Hassan Nasrallah's Hizballah. Lately, he sent his greetings to Nasrallah-"the winner in July war". Maybe he's a winner, but we know how many of the Lebanese lost their money, property and lives in this war.

hizballah continues the gravedigging

A year has passed since the war in Lebanon took the homes and lives of so many Lebanese people. Sitting here in Germany, away from the battlefield, I think of all my friends who have lost their families during that war, that served for nothing but excuse the miserable existence of Hizballah. I'm furious. Not only because they have caused so much destruction, but because they keep planning the next step. As if there hasn't been enough fighting and killing, they dig the graves of the next victims of their acts. And only because they know that their end is near. I quoted a line from Shakespeare's "Hamlet",in which the exiled prince returns to Denmark and finds a man digging a grave and singing. Hamlet asks whose grave it is, and after getting a shrewd answer, he tells the gravedigger that the grave must be his, since he is lying in it.

Drawing the red line

The Lebanese government says it will make all efforts needed to find those who committed that terrible crime last Wednesday.I have a pretty good idea who is really behind the killings...
