Here in Germany, winter arrived late this year. Perhaps it is due to global warming. But eventually it came and now we have great snow.. Last weekend I drove with a few friends from the university to Austria and had a wonderful time at St. Anton ski resort.
It reminded me of my first visit to the Shuf - mountains in my beloved homeland. It was winter and we played in the snow until my fingers nearly froze and Ummi warmed them by blowing hot air from her mouth onto my trembling blue hands…
Today, the snow is still white and the beautiful Shuf stand peacefully as a great creation of Allah, but underneath, the ground continues to tremble.
After destroying the summer tourism season, it seems that Hizballah is working hard to create another avalanche, in order to bury the winter season also.
Please let us enjoy the freedom and beauty of our homeland. Stop the killing, stop ruining our lives.

Who assassinated Rafik Al- Hariri?

Two years have passed since the ground trembled in Beirut, and all over Lebanon. Rafik Al-Hariri was assassinated by those who wish to throw us back into the dark days of the 1970's civil war. Hariri was a brave man that believed in the freedom of Lebanon. His vision is our heritage. The tears I cry over his death are of sorrow for his lost, and of anger for those heartless foreign forces, that are playing in the Lebanese playground, killing us, killing our hope for a peaceful living in our homeland.
Allah Yer7amo.

Lebanon's Flat tire…

Never really understood this issue of burning tires in demonstrations. It causes air pollution, bad smell, and reflects bad taste. What are you trying to do, Seid Nasserallah? You claim to repair all the Lebanese faults but you cause so many of them. You turn into fire and smoke our national hopes, our freedom and our honor.
